Can I hear a YASSSS for the start of the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty 2020 Fall sale?! The Ulta 21 Days of Beauty 2020 starts August 30th and we’ll see deals through September 19th. You can see the full 21 Days of Beauty 2020 Fall calendar here, but I wanted to help you weed through the list and find the best 50% off deals that are worth picking up. These are products I have tried and love personally, and offer a great value… because I believe every splurge should be a smart one!
There are so many ways to get your hands on these deals this year: in store, online, through the app and even ordering for curbside pickup. Just remember: these deals tend to sell out quickly! Tap on the picture of the item to find it on Ulta’s website, or scroll below for the links and why I love/want each product.
The Best of Week 1
8/30: Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil | $12 (Reg $24)
This is my all-time favorite brow product, hands down. It’s an incredibly fine-tipped brow pencil that creates thin strokes to define your brows while maintaining a natural appearance. It offers 12 hours of waterproof wear, and totally reliable for beautiful brows that last.
8/30: Foreo LUNA Mini 2 | $59.50 (Reg. $119)
I always get super excited when I see LUNA devices on sale, because they are worth it, even full price. This cleansing device uses silicone touchpoints and pulsations to deeply cleanse while gently exfoliating. It’s hygienic and resists bacteria buildup (35x more hygienic than brush cleansers), plus the battery life is stellar. You can read more about the FOREO Luna devices in my post here. NOTE: Clarisonic just went out of business, so now is the best time to make the switch before you can’t find brush heads anymore!
9/3: Urban Decay All Nighter Waterproof Setting Powder | $17 (Reg. $34)
For special occasions, long days, or whenever you just want your makeup to last, period. This powder waterproofs your makeup, setting it for up to 11 hour wear. It’s lightweight and doesn’t feel dry or cakey, and does a great job mattifying and keeping shine at bay.
9/5: Tarte Shape Tape Glow Wand | $12.50 (Reg. $25)
If you love a natural— yet noticeable— glow, this product is for you! You can use it under your eyes, at the tops of your cheekbones, and anywhere you want a luminous boost. It gives you a dewy radiance and a soft focus effect without shimmer. Keep in mind that it’s not a concealer, so it’s not going to give you a ton of coverage.

The Best of Week 2
9/7: Too Faced Natural Palettes | $19.50 (Reg. $39)
I’ve kept any given version of the Too Faced Natural Eyes palette in my collection for years, it’s one of my favorite staple palettes. Both the eye and face palettes will be on sale— they feature silky and pigmented powders that apply and blend like a dream!
9/11: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eyeliners | $11 (Reg. $22)
These are the best pencil liners money can buy, and for $11 they’re a steal! They really do glide on the skin with intense pigment, and they set to be budge-proof and waterproof. You do get a little bit of time before they set if you want to blend them out, and they come in so many fun color options (39 to be exact!).
9/12: Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kits in Matte and Velvet | $13.50-14.50 (Reg. $27-29)
I’ll say it… I prefer the Kylie liquid lipstick formula over many drugstore options. They go on extremely smooth, lightweight and pigmented and actually last on me through eating and drinking. I only ever buy them on sale, though, and since there are two full-size products in these kits, you’re getting each for about $7— a drugstore-level price!
9/12: Mario Badescu Grab & Go Drying Lotion & Facial Spray Duo | $11 (Reg. $22)
This is one of the few skincare items I recommend buying on sale, because it’s always a bummer to get hooked on something expensive. But even full price, Mario Badescu is a moderately priced and effective skin care line, and this duo has two of their cult favorite products. The Drying Lotion is an overnight acne treatment that will reduce the appearance of blemishes quickly, and the Facial Spray helps hydrate and soothe skin in one spritz.

The Best of Week 3
9/13: Too Faced Hangover Priming & Setting Spray | $16.50 (Reg. $32)
If you love multi-use products, this is for you! You can use this spray to prime, set, and refresh your makeup. It’s infused with coconut water which helps keep skin hydrated and adds a really nice scent. When I sandwich my makeup between applications of this spray, my makeup stays looking fresh throughout the day.
9/13: Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels | $8.75-16 (Reg. $17.50-32)
My other skin care highlight from the sale includes this treat for your undereye area. They help with puffiness and fine lines, helping to tone and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. These are great for a morning pick-me-up before makeup, and I love these particularly for how secure they stay in place vs. gel eye masks.
9/17: Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara | $11.50 (Reg. $23)
This mascara gives me all the every day drama I love. It offers so much length, lift and volume that coats each lash while fanning them out. Since the shelf life of mascara is so short, and there are so many amazing drugstore options, I rarely recommend high end mascaras. However, at this price, it’s absolutely worth it for the gorgeous effect.
9/19: It Cosmetics Bye Bye Foundation | $19.75 (Reg. $39.50)
Here’s another 3-in-1 product that delivers! This is a “full coverage moisturizer”— so basically a tinted moisturizer with a LOT of tint to it. (I wouldn’t go as far as to say full coverage, but medium-full buildable for sure). Both the original and oil-free version will be on sale. They add rich moisture, even out skin tone and also provide SPF 50 for sun protection! It covers three steps of your beauty routine, so it’s a steal for just under $20.
