Did you know that September has the best deals on beauty products? Yup, me neither, but according to Racked, we're all in luck this month! RetailMeNot let the site in on the savings secret, and I have to say, some of the deals they uncovered are pretty exciting. Possibly the most thrilling for beauty geeks across the country? Ulta's 21 Days of Beauty.
The event, which began on Sept. 6 and runs until Sept. 26, features steals on tons of Ulta's most popular items. With a couple of tempting discounts each day, it's a good thing you don't actually have to get yourself to a store — many of the deals are valid on their website as well (some are even online only.) So no worries if you don't live in a city with an Ulta (my condolences), because there's always good ol' online shopping.
Nothing on Ulta's calendar catching your eye? There's plenty of other beauty sales to keep on your radar. Racked points out that Glossier is offering free shipping till the end of the month starting on Sept. 13, and Murad has a coupon code for 20 percent off from Sept. 10 to 16.
If you're looking elsewhere for deals, the "highest average savings and the most gifts with purchase [happen] during the second week of September," according to Racked's RetailMeNot intel. "For percent-off details, the fourth week in September is best."
Here are the eight deals from Ulta's 21 Days of Beauty that you can't miss. Time to clear some space in the makeup drawer.
