Product Haul: Ulta's Ultimate Sale!

Ulta is having a fabulous sale until the 27th of this month, so if you haven't already checked it out, please do so. They are currently offering a 3 for 10 deal, meaning you can get three makeup items from the Ulta brand of cosmetics (this excludes lip plumpers, eye quads and mascaras); three items from the Mon Image and Studio Basics brand (makeup brushes); or three items from Ardell (eyelashes and eyelash glue) for $10.00. In addition, they're having a buy one, get one half off deal on cosmetic lines such as Maybelline, Prestige, and NYX, just to name a few. Here are the items I purchased:

Studio Basics Makeup Brushes
  • 1 Eye Shading Brush
  • 1 Eye Blending & Smudging Brush (2 brushes in 1. This is great for creating a smokey eye)
  • 1 Eleven Piece Total Beauty Set (This set includes a powder brush; blush brush; sponge-tip applicator; eye shading brush; eye blending brush; eyeliner brush; brow brush; lash & brow groomer; and lip brush. All the items are contained in a cute, plastic case that also has a pop-up mirror).
Ulta Eye Shadow

  • Copper Bronze
Lip Colors

(From left to right)
  • NYX lipstick in Chaos
  • NYX lipstick pencil in Deep Red
  • Ulta brand lipgloss in Cutie
  • Ulta brand lipgloss in Sugarplum
Chaos on lips

Deep Red on lips

Cutie on lips

Sugarplum on lips

Thanks to the sale and the $3.50 off any purchase of $10.00 or more coupon I received from them in the mail, I got all these fabulous products for only $24.67! That's a great deal considering that the Ulta brand lipglosses usually run $8.00 a pop. The best part was that the 11-piece brush set was included in the 3-for-$10 deal, so I really got more bang for my buck with that one!

If you haven't signed up for Ulta's club card, please do so. By signing up, you will receive exclusive offers in the mail that will help you snag great deals such as the one I described above. And, when I say exclusive, I mean exclusive, for unlike Walgreens, Sally's, or other beauty supply stores, Ulta does not carry in-store circulars. You can download some of their coupons online at Ulta.com, but when you use their club card, they will keep track of your purchases so that you earn rewards towards future purchases. In fact, I received my Ice Queen eyeshadow (the one I used in my Two Smokey, Hot Pink Eyes tutorial) for free after accumulating a certain amount of points. Go get yours today!

Hey Diva! I have a question. I have a lip glass from MAC similar to the Cutie. I need a liner and was wondering what kind of liner and color you used for Cutie.

Hey miss,

I didn't use any liner in the pic. However, I wore Cutie yesterday and used my 24 brown lip pencil by Jordana. That seemed to work pretty well. Hope this helps!

I had a wonderful time at Ulta on Saturday!...I went right over and much to my surprise there was the half off sale on the NYX...I didn't know the other part of the sale was going on for Ulta prodcutss!...But I am happy to be a new customer to NYX...and I love it!...I had many reservations since some cosmetics will look great on lighter complexions but often ashy or off toned on darker complexion!...I was wrong! I was rockin in my eyeshadows!...Thanks for tellin me about NYX DPrincess!...Later!

Thanks for the info regarding the sale at Ulta. I went today and did the 3 for $10 of the Ulta makeup and picked up the Smokey Eyes Automatic Eye Liner, I did get the Cutie lip gloss you suggested and I got the Sublime lip gloss. To my surprise they both looked great on my lips (I always think I need color on my lips). I also did the 3 for $10 of the Studio Basics.

Thanks for the excellent suggestions. Now I can't wait to look at your videos to teach me how to apply the make up!
