Ulta #21daysofbeauty : b//b picks

I look forward to this month of promotions all year. No joke. Ulta SLAYS when it comes to rewards, so I prefer spending my money where it will go further and where I am rewarded for shopping with CASH MONEY YO’!!! Then Ulta goes and does an entire month of daily deals on beauty industry holy grails and I am just like, “Fine, take allllll my money.” These deals are GOOD babes. Like so good, you might want to stock up for your personal stash or buy one for your sister and her dog or just snag one to be the best gift giver on the face of the earth 😘 whatever you do, just don’t miss out on MY PICKS!

I have hand selected the deals that I am certain will sell out, that are only available online and the deals that I will be grabbing during these glorious 21 Days : THIS WEEK BELOW!!! There are a few days that I pass on entirely, so just read carefully and mark your calendars for those bangin’ deals!

September 20th, 2018

  • COVER FX : Custom Enhancer Drops 50% off : While I already own a few of these they truly are the best in the business. Not only do they look stunning under foundation or mixed with moisturizer, but they work beautifully as a highlighter on the cheekbones after makeup! I am grabbing the shades “Sunlight” & “Moonlight”.
  • *ONLINE ONLY* iT COSMETICS : Airbrush Foundation Brush 50% off : This brush is what your foundation blending dreams are made of! I already own it, but I will be adding another one to my collection while it’s at this great price.

September 21st, 2018

  • BENEFIT : Porefessional 50% off : This one is a CULT FAVE and is honestly the best pore filling primer in the biz, trust. If you have problems with your makeup staying in place or are concerned about your pores, THIS is the product you need!

September 22nd, 2018

  • iT COSMETICS : Confidence in a Cream 50% off : My mom has been loooooving this cream and I have been wanting to pick it up for awhile now, so today is the day!! This is so creamy, so hydrating, so plumping yet doesn’t leave the skin feeling tacky or heavy. This will become my new day time moisturizer & I could not be more thrilled!
  • URBAN DECAY : All-Nighter Setting Spray 50% off : NOW IS THE TIME! This is theeeee setting spray on the market. There is nothing like is truthfully, so while it’s just $16 I might just snag a few!

That wraps up the last week!! I hope you grabbed something reaaaaaal nice for your self!

{SECRET} Nordstrom Beauty Sale

Eeeeevery once and awhile I will get on Nordstrom and POOF, a few of my favorite products are one sale! Nordstrom doesn’t advertise the sale and in this case, they are simply price-matching from a competitors site and so from my research there is no telling when the sale will end. Not that there is a sense of urgency 😘, but girl, grab it before the prices shoot back up!! If you missed anything from the Sephora VIB sale, or only got 10% off there, then today is your lucky day my sweet friend.

This sale is more random than most and so I have linked the brands that are included in the 15% sale, my top picks from those brands and a few bits that were actually 20% that I couldn’t resist sharing!

STILA : I cannot for the life of me figure out a system to this sale, but if you haven’t already purchased the shimmer & glow shadows from Stila, trust, NOW is the time! No need for a primer and incredible pigment I love wearing these all over the lid OR as a stunning glitter eyeliner!

CLARINS : I haven’t tried much of this line – am I missing out?? BUT their lip oil, especially in the glitter shade ‘Honey Glam’, is my luxury must have. No joke, the applicator is the literal softest thing that has ever touched my lips. Ever.

SHESEIDO : I have heard absolutely incredible things about this skincare line (that seemingly never goes on sale) and so I picked up a few things for myself while they are discounted!! I have very high hopes for the eye patches and the eye cream has been on my wishlist for months and months now, so I snagged that as well!

URBAN DECAY : The majority of this line is on sale rn and that makes me so so happy! While they are on sale snag my favorite foundation for pictures, the eyeshadow primer that will last you a year and keep your smokey eye lookin fly all day, ANY of the cult favorite eyeshadow palettes or the lipgloss that is my current go-to!

NARS : The entire NARS line is not included on this sale, but there a two cult favorites that I had to include because they will forever remain in my line up! These matte lip pencils are truly some of the best in the biz and the colors are ALL flattering to most skin tones. My beloved concealer is also included on the sale, so if you’ve been waiting to try it, ORDER NOW!!

TWEEZERMAN : As far as I can tell, this entire line has been discounted SO, if you don’t own a pair of these tweezers, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? 😘 My husband and I swear by these because one pair will last you YEARS. I keep one in my car, one with my brushes and a few stored in my bathroom. We refuse to be caught without them.

BENEFIT : I looooove this makeup line and so I am super pleased that it is also on sale! I have been using the blue mascara for awhile now and not only does it last all day without flaking, but I get so.many.compliments when I wear it. It absolutely amplifies any look! Not to mention my holy grail bronzer  and the cult favorite blushes are (mostly) all on sale too.

LANCOME : I trusted my makeup artist friends when they said they swore by this foundation, but it quickly became one of my very favorites! Applies like butter, looks like skin, covers any spots and blends out beautifully with both the fingertip and a brush. I even grabbed a muuuuch deeper shade to use for contouring because it blends out so naturally on the skin and looks stunning!

BEAUTY BLENDER : If you are late to the train, this sponge is worth every penny so jump on board!! She comes in a variety of colors and sets, so split the cost with a sister and grab this now!

GLAM MIRROR : I have wanted one of these for a long while now and I am so happy that I found this HUGE glam mirror on sale!! This set is 20% off right now and includes a magnifying mirror as well as a compact for my purse and will look real chic on my counter.

ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS : If you are a brow gal, you know that know one does a brow product like Anastasia! I have sworn by the brow definer for a year now, but I have recently fallen back in love with the dip brow pomade.

Other brands included in the sale that are worth a mention are BUXOM (hello queen of all glosses!!), ESTEE LAUDER (anyone else a die hard Double Wear fan?!), MAC (new releases for 15% off, yasssssss!) and SMASHBOX (you know I live for their always on lipsticks!) 😍

Happy DEAL shopping my sweet friends!! xox
