And of course don't forget about these other current freebies:
  • FREE WITH SELECT $21.50 ULTA BEAUTY PURCHASE: now through 8/28 when you spend at least $21.50 on any of the Ulta Beauty products on THIS PAGE, you will receive this FREE 13-piece gift (two bag options; floral or purple) which also comes with a coupon for a future Ulta Beauty purchase. After you have added enough qualifying items to your cart, go to checkout and you will see a drop-down option that will allow you to select which bag you want. Limit 1 13-piece gift per customer.
  • FREE WITH ANY $30 FRAGRANCE PURCHASE: spend at least $30 on any fragrances and this Weekender Bag will automatically appear in your cart.

Also, there are some new items now on the Ulta site that I want to be sure you know about (click a link below to go directly to the item listing for more info):

You should also know that Maybelline is BOGO1/2OFF this week and these new items are included in that sale. Plus you can use code 308920 online for $3.50 off your $10 non-prestige purchase.

Speaking of the Maybelline BOGO1/2OFF sale, there are three new value sets now on the Ulta website and all of these are also included in the BOGO1/2OFF sale:

With code 308920 (online only), that would bring one of these sets down to $7.49, which breaks down to $3.75 per item. Not bad, and even better when you factor in the BOGO1/2OFF discount!

Over on the prestige side of the Ulta world, there are three new Benefit value sets now online:

With the purchase of the eye kit ($36), you'll also receive a freebie:

FREE deluxe mini Boi-ing Industrial Strength Concealer with any $35 Benefit purchase (offer valid 8/7/16-8/27/16 or while supplies last)

Also, this is not a value set but I think it's still worth noting. The new Tarte Wild Animal Tarteist PRO Custom Magnetic Palette is now on the Ulta site HERE (online only). It retails for $17 and that's not a horrible price for an empty palette, especially if you like this design, so I just wanted to bring it to your attention. 

This palette is also now available on the Tarte website HERE if you'd rather purchase directly from Tarte. I grabbed this photo from their site to show perspective and give you a better idea of the size of the palette. No dimensions are listed on either website, which kind of sucks, but hopefully one of you will know the dimensions (because you're good like that!) and share below.

And last but not least...

There are lots of rumors floating around about the 21 Days of Beauty Event, which happens every spring and fall. The Fall 2016 event is supposedly going to start on September 4th and run through September 24th, UPDATE: the Fall 2016 Ulta 21 Days of Beauty event starts on Sept 4 and runs through Sept 24. I just posted the full calendar of daily Beauty Steals HERE for this event, plus additional info!


  1. Great big giant HOORAY to this! For some reason 21 Days of Beauty never makes it on my radar (whoops) and even when it does, I'm never in *love* with the offerings and am usually able to talk myself down (usually ... mostly ...). However, I did google after reading this post and if the "leaked ads" are to be believed, I am incredibly excited about a couple of the offerings this year! Thanks for the tip G. -- I'm having a crummy day and distracting myself with the thought of shiny new makeup is helping. :-)

    1. Awww, I'm so happy I could help, Rubia! And I hope your day gets better (I've been having a crappy WEEK, so I know exactly how much the little things like this can help)! *hugs*

  2. I just got the ulta circular with the 21 days of beauty sales on it. How can I send you pictures of it.

    1. Hi Samantha! Thank you SO MUCH!! I JUST received some pics of the circular from another reader, but if you'd like to send yours (please don't go to any trouble) the more the merrier! My email is nouveaucheap at gmail dot com. :)

  3. Seriously, Ulta is trying to bankrupt me on purpose! Here I go, placing another order just to get the 20-piece beauty bag.

  4. This is the one time in the past 8-9 days I feel like I don't have to make a purchase based off the free gift lol I was getting overwhelmed with the Michael Kors 2-piece including Full size body wash, the coach 3-piece(which sold out before I can get my hands on it), the Estee Lauder purchase, the Ulta bag, and 2 other various bags. Its nice to take a break before 21 days of beauty hits

  5. I don't know the exact measurements of the tarte palette but they showed on their Instagram Stories how it fits different pans and it exactly holds nine of their standard blush pans perfectly. Hopefully that helps a little bit.

  6. Hey, I found a coupon code 405959 for 20% off your purchase good until Sept 4!
