Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty Fall 2014| Sunday, September 7

Starting at midnight tonight, Ulta kicks off their 21 Days of Beauty bi-annual event. Each day will have different in-store events and beauty steals® (in-store and online). Each day I’ll be posting a guide to prepare for the next day of deals so that you’re ready to make smart purchases and limit the impulse buys.

Here’s what you need to know for Day One, Sunday, September 7:

Beauty Steals®:

All bareMinerals mascaras will be 50% OFF. Currently, Ulta has eight different kinds on their website, ranging from $10 – $18. I have yet to try any bareMinerals’s mascaras but for starters, I’d recommend going for an $18 mascara so that you get the most out of this deal. 

Out of the six mascaras at that price point, here’s how they ranked with customers (from highest rated to lowest):

bareMinerals Flawless Definition Mascara


1. bareMinerals Flawless Definition Mascara

bareMinerals Flawless Definition Curl Lengthening Mascara



     2. bareMinerals Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara 


bareMinerals Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara


3. bareMinerals Flawless Definition Curl Lengthening Mascara


bareMinerals Double Domination


 4. bareMinerals Double Domination Mascara


bareMinerals Flawless Definition Waterproof Mascara


5. bareMinerals Flawless Definition Waterproof Mascara


bareMinerals Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara


   6. bareMinerals Double Domination Volumizing Mascara



It’s obvious that their Flawless Definition line of mascaras is the most popular among customers and as I looked closer at the brushes of each, I decided which ones I’d be purchasing tomorrow:

bareMinerals Flawless Definition

I’m going to scoop up one of their original Flawless Definition Mascara because I know it’s going to give me va-voom-volume. It has a brush very similar to Maybelline’s the Rocket Mascara, just thinner. The short rubber bristles are roughly the same length as the Rocket mascara so I expect that it would achieve the same full, voluminous lash look we all strive for. 




bareMinerals Flawless Definition Curl Lengthening


The other one on my list is their Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara, which has a similar brush to Too Faced’s Better Than Sex Mascara. Albeit not as dramatically hourglass shaped, it still should provide good volume, especially because the bristles are spaced similarly to Maybelline’s Falsies Mascara, another YouTube Beauty Community favorite. 



Philosophy Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash

Additionally, Philosophy’s Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash (8 oz.) will be $15 (reg. price $27). It’s sulfate-free and gentle enough for everyday use. It rated 4.6 stars out of 5 with Ulta customers, which is pretty darn good. While the reviewers said it does have a bad smell, they said it was a great gentle exfoliant and great to use after removing makeup with the Purity cleanser. Since I do have and adore this cleanser, I’ll be picking up a bottle of the exfoliating wash to try. 

So, what have you got your eyes on? Comment below.
