As I shared in my last post (Tips for Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty), Hot Buys are promotions on specific items that run through the entirety of the sale event or until supplies last. Some popular items do tend to sell out quickly, so if there is something you have your eye on, don’t wait too long! Now these items are discounted less than Ulta’s daily Beauty Steals, so I usually don’t find myself purchasing many of these. However, there are a few on my wish list.
Face and Lip Faves:
Tarte Ready, Set, Radiant Skin Mist – Facial sprays have become very popular over the past few years as a quick way to freshen your skin. This skin mist is advertised to have “skinvigorating” ingredients such as cucumber extract, apple extract, tea seed oil, and eucalyptus leaf oil. It is also vegan, hypoallergenic, and fragrance free. I’m a big fan of Tarte, so I may try this mist as a way to soothe and re-hydrate my skin throughout the day. I also like to leave a face mist like this by my bedside to quickly spritz after my nighttime skincare routine and before I sleep.
Lipstick Queen Saint and Sinner Lipstick – Although I’m more intrigued about some of their color changing lipsticks, this is still a great opportunity to try their formula. Saint lipsticks tend to be more sheer while Sinner products are more opaque. I’ve heard and read reviews raving about the pigmentation, comfort, and longevity of these products so I may just have to test these out myself.
Although I don’t have any must-have picks for myself this time, the Shiseido Eyelash Curler has been a cult favorite, especially for Asian and almond shaped eyes. It also features a silicone pad instead of rubber, which better helps to curl lashes and keep them curled longer. Who doesn’t like sky-high lashes?! Although this is a decent discount, I believe you can find it for a slightly lower price during other promotions or elsewhere. However, rest assured that this is still a solid buy since you can reuse this many MANY times.
Patchology Spoiled Rotten At-Home Pampering Kit – I haven’t tried anything from Patchology, so this is a great way to test out their product line. This set includes a pair of FlashPatch Rejuvenating Eye Gels (would be great after a long flight!), FlashPatch Hydrating Lip Gels, an Illuminate FlashMasque Facial Sheet Mask, and a PoshPeel Pedi Cure Intensive Foot Peel Treatment. I’m most intrigued about the foot peel. Although I don’t have very dry skin around my heels, I’ve heard wonderful things about this product and it’s efficacy compared to other foot peels on the market. This set comes with a cute reusable makeup bag too. It could make for a great gift or for a girls night in with friends!
