If there’s one thing we love more than fashion, it’s a bargain, and whoa nelly do we have a bargain tip for you. Ulta, our favorite one-stop-shop for all things beauty, is currently holding a killer sale on some of our absolute favorite drug store products. Seriously, guys. This stuff is good. NYX, Revlon and Physician’s Formula are all 40% until Sunday, so believe us when we say RUN, don’t walk, to scoop up the best of these bargain beauty products.
If you’re going to make it out to Ulta, there’s one item you must pick up: we are obsessed with NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. On sale for under $3.50 a pop, we’ve already ordered one in every shade — allow us to explain. This fabulous formula goes on glossy and dries matte. Believe us when we say it’s built to last. This stuff triumphs through eating, drinking and even the occasional lip lock, something of great importance when selecting lip color. Why opt for uber expensive beauty brands when you can get 5 for the price of one? If it’s a dark lip you crave for fall, proceed with caution. You may be in for some major disappointment if you wait too long to shop the sale. Copenhagen and Transylvania are two completely coveted looks for fall, so be sure to stock up on these to avoid heartache. While you’re at it, be sure to pick up a few lip liners to complement your fabulous fall shades. At only $2 bucks a piece, you can splurge and snatch up one in each color — one nude, one red, one pink and one burgundy, just to be safe.
Another of our picks for this hot, hot sale? It’s all in the hands. Revlon’s wide selection of nail polishes is enough to make a rainbow jealous. Look for stand-out shades and other cool items like Matte Top Coats and quick-drying formulas. These can go a long way in your beauty arsenal, so stock up before they skyrocket to regular price and you’re forced to go without. To perfect the prettiest of fall manicures, opt for a brilliant burgundy shade and top off with a matte top coat to create a high-fashion look for less than the price of a Starbucks.
