Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Day 6 Deals are Live (New Freebies and a Personal Rec)

The Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Day 6 deals are live, so here's your nightly reminder, including some new tips. Be sure to read through this entire post (I don't want you to miss anything)!

PERSONAL RECOMMENDATION: I have personally purchased (and repurchased) the IT Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Pencil. Depending on how much or how little pressure you apply, you really can control the color. I think the taupe shade of this pencil would work well for redheads, blondes, dark blondes, and light/medium brunettes. I do think that it might not be deep enough for those with very dark brown or black hair, but that's only based on reviews I've read (I used this pencil when I had red hair, dark blonde hair and light brown hair and it worked well for all of those colors). I love that this pencil isn't too warm--it's cool enough for when my hair is ashy blonde/brown. The staying power is fantastic when it comes to my oily skin (lasts all day, even in the summer) and I LOVE that it adheres my skin (I have a few patches in my brows that I need to cover). The only thing that may be an issue is if you prefer a very fine point to your brow pencils. This is one of those pencils that's similar to Benefit's Goof Proof Brow Pencil, so it's not a super fine point. It's not a jumbo pencil or anything like that, and I do find it easy to work with on my relatively thin brows. However, I just want to mention that in case you prefer an ultra-fine tip. Oh! I also love that it's self-sharpening (twist-up) and that it comes with a built-in spoolie.

SPECIAL NOTE FOR PLATINUM MEMBERS: all Platinum members receive free shipping with any Beauty Steal purchase. This offer is valid for the entire duration of the event (now through April 8).

  1. I want to get the It brow pencil, but can't make it to the store today. The Ulta site only shows one color and it looks black.I wonder what's up with that. I may just order it anyway and change it for the taupe at the store when I can get there.

    1. There is only one shade. That's why it says "universal", because it's supposed to work for everyone. :)

  2. Are you sure the Ulta Bare Minerals coupon was for $10 off $30? The one they sent me was $10 off $40. Maybe they are sending out different ones?
