Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Day 18 Deals are Live (Tips and What I'm Buying)

The Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Day 18 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)!

TIPS (AND WHAT I'M BUYING): Just a reminder that Tarte Maracuja Oil Hot Buy is back in stock here (thanks to readers @_indra_j, Laura, and Gatorsmama for that tip!). Also, I've been waiting for this day because I REALLY want those Cargo Swimmables Blushes (Bali and Los Cabos, to be exact; link below). I have heard that the staying power of these blushes is incredible (I have loved the regular Cargo blushes for over a decade now and those have great staying power) and I have heard that these blushes are used on the set of Dancing with the Stars (which probably speaks to their sweat-proof-ness). I love that these Swimmables have a beautiful iridescence to them with no glitter (see swatches of all three shades here). Plus, if you buy two you get that freebie (details below).

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. Hi, G! I bought the Cargo swimmable blush in the shade of Los Cabos last year. It's what I took with me on a trip to the warm islands. The shade is lovely and stayed through the humid, 90+ temps until I washed it off! I'll be reaching for their eyeliner today. I swatched it at Kohl's and found that it stayed through a warm water rinsing.

  2. The Cargo GWP is showing as out of stock for me when I tried to check out just now.

  3. FYI - On the bareMinerals website the Moxie lip gloss collection Glossed Up and Gorgeous is currently $18. If you go onto Ulta it is currently $26. Not sure the best way to sent you these updates but wanted to let you know.

  4. AND Ulta just posted up a Lancome Beauty Break. 4 piece collection with any $50 purchase. I did not buy any Lancome products, added the beauty break and it was added to my cart. Today was a good haul day!

  5. I own two of the swimmables blushes( Ibiza and Bali). Amazing. I finally hit pan on Bali. If I could only have 1 blush, that would be it. I'm in very hot Santa Clarita and they lost all day on me in the summer. I might have to get a backup since they are 50% off. They are made in Canada too, highly, highly recommend.

  6. Btw, I went to my Ulta and they are clearing out Tonymoly whipping cotton bubble foam. It was 4.12. I bought one so I could get the free Nars orgasm stick. I went back yesterday and bought 2 more because I love them.

  7. Oh no! Sold out of the Swimmables blushes in Los Cabos and Bali! The 2 I wanted! I am so bummed. I've never bought them before but have been wanting to and this was my perfect opportunity. Dang work! Any possibility they will be back in stock before the sale is over at midnight?
