My Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Haul

My Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Haul

I promised myself that I wasn’t going to go HAM during Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty sale which started on September 1st. And I don’t think I did - at least not how I have during previous sales. This year’s sale was’t quite as exciting as it’s been in the past. But I still picked up some great items and things that I have been wanting to try for awhile.


Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream

I have heard people rave about this cream for years. But I would always forget about trying it. This wasn’t part of the 21 Days of Beauty sale. It was part of the Ulta Hot Buys which is a sale that runs alongside 21 Days of Beauty and lasts all month long (as opposed to one day only with 21 Days). I am interested to see how this works for my skin during the dry fall and winter months. I suffer from dry skin and eczema during the winter and a rich moisturizing cream that lasts helps a lot. I opted for the fragrance-free version.

Too Faced Natural Face Palette

This palette was nowhere on my radar and I had no interest in it - until I saw swatches. The colors are so soft with subtle hints of shimmer. I love products like this for winter when I want to give my skin a bit of extra glow. And I love Too Faced’s face products.

CoverFX Gripping Primer

Another item that has been on my “to try” list since it came out. I am really interested in seeing how it compares to my current favorite primer, Milk HydroGrip.

Dr. Brandt No More Baggage

My quest to end morning eye puffiness continues. I’ve heard some people say this is the only product that helped their under eye puffiness and others say it did nothing for them. For that reason I decided to just get the travel size. I ‘m not ready to commit yet to the full one.

Peach & Lily Glass Skin Serum

I was really intrigued by the ingredients in this serum and it’s claims. A few people in the Facebook beauty group I belong to raved about it. Then my esthetician recommended it on her IG stories….and I was sold. This is one of the items I am the most excited about trying.

Lancome Monsieur Big

A cult favorite that I have been wanting to try. Want to see how it stacks up against my personal all time favorite mascara, Hourglass Caution.

GrandeCosmetics Grande Brow Serum

I almost purchased the trial size of this during Sephora’s Bonus Sale event a few weeks ago. I’m glad I held off because I was able to get the full size version for the exact same price during 21 Days of Beauty. Will I be able to finally have full luscious brows? We shall see….

As you can see, it wasn’t a ton. But It’s all things that I have been wanting and no real impulse items (the Too Faced palette which was a somewhat late addition but I did plan on getting it before the sale started). Have you grabbed anything from the sale or do you plan om getting anything ? If so, let me know in the comments. Ulta 21 Days of Beauty runs until September 21st so you still have a few days to snag some goodies!
