MAC is finally at Ulta!




If you're like me and keep your finger on the pulse of the beauty world you heard the whisperings of MAC coming to Ulta in the last couple months. I'm so excited to share with you guys that it finally happened! Currently it's available online only, but will be available in select stores starting next month. A list of the stores that will be carrying it is up already, but they're adding new stores all the time. So far none near me, but I'm excited to be able to earn my Ultimate Rewards while buying MAC. They seem to have a really great selection of the products and I'm very excited!

To see a list of locations and the dates they will be open check out this link: http://www.ulta.com/mac-cosmetics-locations/

Ulta Beauty Steals Spring 2017 Day 11






So today's deals include a product I use, one I know a little about and one I've never heard anything about. I've tried Benefit's They're Real Tinted Lash Primer a few times in the past. I own a travel size of it and I've had mixed results. Sometimes it makes my lashes look lush, full and long and then sometimes I get a bit clumpy. I'm going to chalk it up to user error and still recommend it. You can grab it today for only $12 plus there's a Gift with Purchase: FREE deluxe Watt's Up! Highlighter with any $45 Benefit purchase and FREE Hoola Bag with any $45 Benefit purchase. Now I've embraced my paleness wholeheartedly, but I have some friends who use St Tropez products with great results. You can grab the Gradual Tan Classic Everyday Body Lotion for just $12.50 and get ready for Spring outfits (if we ever get the weather to match!) Last up is a Environmental Shield Essential-C Cleanser I know nothing about unfortunately so I can't make a recommendation on it, but you can pick it up for $19 today. You can also get a Gift with Purchase: FREE deluxe Daily Detox Essentials Gift with any $75 Murad purchase.

Ulta Beauty Steals Spring 2017 Day 10

I own one Laura Gellar baked blush and it's actually pretty nice, it's also pretty pigmented. You can snap up the Laura Gellar Baked Blush n Brighten for just $14 today. I haven't tried any of the products from It Cosmetics, but this palette looks SO pretty and for just $21 it's a great deal. It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Vol 1 Matte Luxe Transforming Eyeshadow Palette
I've never tried anything from Dr. Brandt and I actually haven't heard anything about the Pores No More Pore Refiner Primer, but it seems to have gotten great reviews. It's a little on the pricey side but at $22.50 it could be worth trying.

Ulta Beauty Steals Spring 2017 Day 9

I haven't tried anything from Tarte's new Maneater line, but who doesn't love a black liner? I love self sharpening too because I can toss them in my purse and use them whenever. Today you can get the Maneater Self Sharpening Liner for $10. And bonus, it's waterproof. Hello summer. Next up is the Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara. I own this and to be honest I've only used it a few times. I think I just wasn't super impressed and own others I like better. However it does get pretty good reviews and for less than $12 is worth a shot. You'll also get a free Gift with Purchase of a mini with any $35 Stila purchase so you could always try it by getting something else from Stila. Lastly is the Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash. This is another product I've never tried, but it has a lot of scents added which wouldn't necessarily bother me, but some people are sensitive so I figured I'd mention it. Oddly enough the Gift with Purchase (FREE deluxe Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask with any $45 Origins purchase) sounds more like something I'd be likely to purchase than the cleanser.

Ulta Beauty Steals Spring 2017 Day 8

I recently bought some of the It Brushes for Ulta and I have been loving them, they've made such a difference in my routine. Today you can get the Airbrush Smoothing Foundation Brush #102 half price. And the adorable Gift with Purchase is its mini version perfect for travel or touchup (FREE mini Airbrush Foundation Brush 101 with any $35 IT Brushes for ULTA purchase.) The next deal is a from a brand I've never heard of: Organic to Green. They're offering up a Mini Coco Oil Travel Kit with a selection of coconut oil infusions for different skin types. Lastly is another peel pad, the Dermadoctor Kakadu C Intensive Vitamin C Peel Pad with Ferulic Acid & Vitamin E. This one is meant for daily use and is a 30 day supply and the gift with purchase is unfortunately and strangely just a single additional pad.

Ulta Beauty Steals Spring 2017 Day 8


I've looked at some of the Becca primers in the past and I REALLY considered trying this Becca Backlight Priming Filter. It's supposed to help blur imperfections while giving that glowing from within look. I'm holding off for now only because I have SO much primer right now and I want to try to use through some of them first, it does look awesome though. There is also a Gift with Purchase: FREE deluxe First Light Priming Filter with any $30 Becca purchase. Next are the Dermalogica Skin Kits in Normal/Oily or Normal/Dry. Again I'm not really a big fan of over the counter skincare so I can't say much about these. I've never used Dermalogica and so I can't have an opinion really. They also have a Gift with Purchase: FREE 3-pc Fresh and Flawless Set with $60 Dermalogica purchase. 

Last up is a Platinum Perk so you must be a Platinum member (or find a friend who is) to purchase it. It's the Urban Decay Afterglow Blush. I'm a huge fan of Urban Decay, but I haven't tried these yet. I have a few friends who love these though and UD never disappoints me. Also they have 2 Gifts with Purchase: FREE Vice Lipstick 24 Pod with any $40 Urban Decay purchase and a FREE deluxe Perversion Mascara with any $40 Urban Decay purchase.

Ulta Beauty Steals Spring 2017 Day 7

 

Finally a day where I've actually tried and love (pretty much) everything! I've owned the Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara a few times in the past and it's a pretty good mascara, not my favorite, but definitely still good. At just $10 today you can't beat it. Next up is a personal favorite. I tried these during last year's 21 Days of Beauty Steals and fell in love. At the regular price they're a little expensive in my opinion, but during the sale they're barely more expensive than a drugstore alternative. I love the Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleansing Cloths. They get all my makeup off fairly gently, but effectively. Some makeup removers irritate my eyes, but these cloths feel fine. I wish there wasn't a limit of 2 per steal or I'd get more. Last up is a Benefit Brow Service
Free brow wax with any $50 Benefit purchase which is a
$21 Value. If you know me, you know that the Benefit Brow Bar is the only place I do my brows. So if you need to stock up on some Benefit today's the day to do it!

Ulta Beauty Steals Spring 2017 Day 6


Today is another day of deals where unfortunately I haven't tried any of these before. Brows are still having moment so I'm always open to trying a new pencil and I've heard good things about It Cosmetics in general. Today you can grab their Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil for just $12. They also have a Gift with Purchase: FREE mini Confidence in a Cream with any $35 IT Cosmetics purchase. Next is the Exuviance Performance Peel AP25, I'll be honest I've seen this brand around, but don't know anything about them. I've tried a few at home peel products and while they never replicate a true chemical peel, they can be a good way to keep up at home when used correctly. This one says to use twice a week for 6 weeks and that it can "Refine pore size and smooth texture, visibly diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve clarity and brightness, brighten and even skin tone, provide an all-over healthy glow, suppleness and smoothness to skin." If it's something you want to try this is a good chance since it's normally almost $80. There's also a Gift with Purchase: FREE Age Reverse Hand Rejuvenator with any Exuviance purchase. Last up is the Lancome Pure  Empreinte Masque Purifying Mineral Mask which is a Kaolin based clay mask for drawing out impurities and refining pores. I love masks so this is a deal I would take advantage of personally. This too has a Gift with Purchase: Receive a deluxe sample of Cils Booster XL Enhancing Mascara Base with any $30 online Lancome purchase.

Ulta Beauty Steals Spring 2017 Day 5

Today is one of those days where I'm going to have to control myself. I swatched some of the Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliners in store and they are like absolute butter. They're so smooth and pigmented and come in some really gorgeous colors. At $11 each they're a steal! As far as the Clarisonic I don't have the Mia 2 (I have the Pro model), but I can highly recommend the Mia 2 if you just want a more basic Clarisonic for just your face. It has 2 speed settings and a 2 year warranty. I've never tried Eyeko so I can't make a real recommendation here, but I have heard great things and at this price they're worth a go.

Ulta Beauty Steals Spring 2017 Day 4

Happy hump-day and another day of deals at Ulta. I've tried a few of the Buxom Full-On Lip Creams and I liked them though some are slightly sticky, but they're a great deal at $10. There is also a Gift with Purchase for Buxom (FREE Pink Cosmetic Bag with any $30 Buxom purchase (offer valid 3/19/17-4/8/17 or while supplies last.)) I am COMPLETELY against Proactiv for various reasons (if you guys want I'll write a separate post about that), but essentially it's horrible for your skin so I'd recommend skipping it. I haven't tried the Laura Geller Filter Finish Setting Powder, but after seeing it I am curious about it. There is also a Gift with Purchase for Laura Geller: FREE full-size Inkcredible Waterproof Gel Eyeliner in Blackbird with any $35 Laura Geller purchase (offer valid 3/19/17-4/8/17 or while supplies last)

Ulta Beauty Steals Spring 2017 Day 3

Another day, another set of deals.

Again I haven't tried any of these so I can't really have an opinion. I do however love spray primers and would be willing to try out these BareMinerals ones. The Butter London Glazen Eye Glosses remind me of the ones MAC came out with a few years ago, but this is a much lower price point. So if you've wanted to try the wet look, this would be a great way to test it out. I've also not tried the Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Anti-Wrinkle Moisturizer, but as I've mentioned before I'm picky about what I use for skincare.

Ulta Beauty Steals Spring 2017 Day 2

I'll be honest I haven't tried a single one of today's Ulta Beauty Steals so I can't in good faith make recommendations. So today I'm just the messenger.

Ulta Beauty Steals Spring 2017 Day 1


I have one of the Too Faced Love Flush Blushes and it's nice, but I don't often find myself reaching for it. (Ulta also has a Too Faced Gift with Purchase: FREE Peanut Butter and Honey Cosmetic Bag and Full Size Honey Infused Lip Gloss with any $35 Too Faced purchase)

 I haven't tried any of the Philosophy skin care, but I'm also very picky about what I use. I do love their body washes. You can get their Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash here. They also have 2 gifts with purchase for Philosophy: FREE packette Renewed Hope with any Philosophy purchase & FREE 6-pc Gift with any $50 Philosophy purchase

Today's Platinum Perk is It Brushes Complexion Perfection Essentials 3 Pc Deluxe Brush Set which includes the Essential Powder Brush, Essential Foundation Brush, and Essential Concealer Brush. They too have a Gift with Purchase: FREE mini Airbrush Foundation Brush 101 with any $35 IT Brushes for ULTA purchase. I recently purchased a bunch of brushes from It at Ulta and I love them. They're really great brushes without breaking the bank and I highly recommend them.

Spring 2017 Ulta 21 Days of Beauty

 https://refer.ulta.com/s/STEPHANIE313  Email My Stats

The Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Steals has consistently been one of my favorite shopping events. They always have really incredible deals on products I actually want to buy. Plus I love that there are always extra deals for Platinum members. I'm posting the calendar of deals below, but I'm going to try to post the deals daily along with the Platinum Perks. Remember that if you're Platinum and purchase any deal, your order ships free!



I like that Ulta has also included some of their own line in the deals and that those are running for week long intervals.


 Which steals are you most looking forward to?

Urban Decay is on HauteLook



I'm a massive Urban Decay junkie so you can only imagine how excited I was when I got a notification this morning that it was up on HauteLook. They've got primer potion, tons of glosses and loads of lipsticks as well as other awesome products at a fraction of the original price. This event will sell out quickly, so head over there and snag some great deals!

L'Oréal EverPure Moisture Review

I was sent the new L'Oréal EverPure Moisture line free from influenster to review.


I'll be completely honest when I say I didn't expect much out of this line. I tend to use very pricey salon brands to protect my hair. Since my hair is dyed red and purple it tends to leech color easily and so I'm always wary. I can honestly say I was very impressed. My hair felt very hydrated and soft and was very manageable after using these. However I was most impressed with the fact that the shampoo didn't strip color from my hair. No matter what brand I use I always have a little bit of color run off, but with this it was very minimal.
