Black Friday has arrived early, and shoppers around the world are browsing sales with their clickable fingers and ready-to-go credit cards. In an effort to anticipate supply chain issues and possible shipping delays, retailers at all levels, including Nordstrom and Amazon, are preparing early and expanding Black Friday deals to in-store shoppers and in line. Ulta’s Black Friday sale is just around the corner, but in the meantime, you can snag some big deals at the retailer’s Hello Holidays event.
On November 14, Ulta launched this online-only event, which is essentially an early Black Friday sale. And while it’s still in full swing, time is running out: Tomorrow is the last day to get up to 50% off a huge selection of makeup, skin care and hair care products. These Ulta Black Friday early bird deals include incredible beauty purchases from LancÃ´me, Neutrogena, Chi, Benefit and more. Don’t miss a great opportunity to cross some people off your gift list or grab a few must-haves to complete your own holiday look. The deals are live, but you’ll have to think quickly. Here’s a look at a few great ones we’ve spotted.
Our Ulta Selling Choices
A One And Done Mascara by LancÃ´me
Appropriately named Grandiose, this one-and-done mascara from LancÃ´me lifts, lengthens and gives volume to lashes. The patented gooseneck wand has been designed to conform to your face shape, and the result is a mascara wand that masterfully reaches root to tip and corner to corner. For you, that means puffy eyelashes that last all day. Ringing under $ 20 is a good deal in our book.
A concealer that helps you achieve a flawless finish
From dark circles under the eyes to blemishes to uneven skin tone, Benefit Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer does the heavy lifting to keep your skin looking flawless. The good news is that while this full coverage concealer is waterproof and long-wearing, it stays lightweight and won’t clump or settle into fine lines. This one also scores points for smart packaging.
A Sleeper Hit foundation that is waterproof and anti-transfer
This successful makeup aisle sleeper may be one of beauty lovers’ best-kept secrets, but we’re okay with the dishes. Cover FX’s Power Play foundation is waterproof, sweat and transfer resistant, and while it offers buildable coverage, it’s still lightweight. It’s also formulated with fermented seaweed extract to protect your skin from free radicals and a trio of ultra-fine powders that blur the appearance of pores. During Ulta’s pre-Black Friday sale, it’s 40% off, so you might want to buy one or three while you can.
A cleanser that purifies pores and calms irritation
Using a blend of willow bark extract, rosemary leaf extract and geranium, Boscia Clear Complexion Cleanser exfoliates and purifies pores, calms inflammation and helps improve skin elasticity. . Formulated specifically for blemish-prone skin, this facial cleanser is free of artificial fragrances and dyes, and it’s gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin types.
A hydrating water-gel that quenches dry skin
With a nourishing blend of hyaluronic acid and vegan pre and probiotics, this water gel moisturizer from Peach and Lily delivers deep, long-lasting hydration to parched skin. Also infused with extracts of kiwi and peach, chamomile and the brand’s VoluSmooth complex, the lightweight product absorbs quickly and works on redness and irritation, leaving you with noticeably calmer skin.
Microdart patches that reduce hyperpigmentation
If your zit has healed but left a calling card (like dark spots and marks) you might want to try these Hyperfade Blur Patches from Zitsticka (I must love that name). Each patch is covered with 24 self-dissolving micro darts that melt and release lightening agents that effectively tackle post-zit hyperpigmentation. Many reviewers said these micro darts worked, but felt a bit pricey with only 12 stickers in a pack. So if you ask us, a 30% off the original sale price is a great opportunity to try it out or stock up.
A facial cleanser for a home spa experience
If you’re a beauty lover or have one on your holiday shopping list, you might want to quickly add one of these bad boys to your cart. In what essentially amounts to an at-home facial, this PMD cleanser vibrates 7,000 times per minute to tackle dirt and oil deep in your pores. Plus, the reverse of the tool features a heated facial massager that feeds serums and moisturizers deep into your skin. At 30% off, we would expect these to not last very long.
A gel-cream that keeps you one step ahead of dry skin
Autumn is in full swing and the mercury is dropping across the country, which means dry skin can’t be far behind. Stay ahead of the game with Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Gel-Cream. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, this gel-cream penetrates quickly, quenches dry skin, and does the heavy lifting to restore the skin’s moisture barrier.
Heated rollers that give a lot of volume and shine
If you are looking for a way to plump your curls and add volume to your hair, these heat rollers should probably be on your shortlist. Perfect for all hair types, this heated roller set features two heat settings, eight wrinkle-resistant clips, and velor flock rollers that add a lot of shine. Normally on the block for $ 130, tomorrow is the last day you can get this set at 30% off for yourself or your gift.
A flat iron that does it in one pass
The Revlon Double Straight Flat Iron delivers smooth styling, less frizz and consistent results. With four ceramic copper plates, this must-have tool straightens your hair in fewer passes for less damage. And for under $ 50, it’s a steal.
A vitamin C cream that boosts radiance
Supplied with vitamin C, this nourishing cream hydrates, smoothes fine lines and visibly brightens the skin. And with advanced antioxidant protection and broad spectrum SPF 30, it is a very good defense against harmful UV rays, pollution and other environmental stressors for your skin.
A purple shampoo that prolongs the color and brings out
This proven purple shampoo is an easy way to extend your color treatment, undo brassy yellow tones, and keep highlights shiny between dates. It’s safe enough to be used twice a week and leaves hair shiny without weighing it down. At just under $ 10 during the Ulta Black Friday Early Bird Sale, you get what you pay for.
A hair dryer suitable for travel
This compact T3 design is 30% smaller than a traditional hair dryer, making it easy to store in your suitcase. Its size doesn’t mean it’s less powerful though – this hair dryer features a special ion-infused airflow designed to dry hair quickly while minimizing damage.
A shampoo that protects the hair from heat
Styling your hair in heat isn’t a bad thing, but failing to protect your locks before you blow them up with heat is a big no-no. So, before your next breakout, you might want to try Chi’s Infra Moisture Therapy Shampoo. This shampoo corrects the water balance in your hair and scalp, and positively charged silk molecules bind to your hair shaft to strengthen and protect against daily heat damage.
A serum that delivers a powerful burst of moisture
Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost Hyaluronic Acid Serum delivers a powerful dose of hydration to dry, parched skin. The fragrance-free product provides long-lasting, lightweight hydration, and is suitable for all skin types.
