Ulta Beauty Holiday 2018 Sneak Peeks

And the holiday sneak peeks have begun! I love this time of year! This is when you see what companies have been dreaming up for a year! You see magical color stories, packaging that will elevate your collection, and all at prices that make these goodies a steal! 

Today Ulta Beauty had their holiday sneak peek and there are some really exciting pieces launching this holiday season! Milly Almodovar of @beautylogicblog had some sneak peeks for us today (via her Instagram Stories).

First up is the Tarte Cosmetics Sweet Escape Collector’s Set! The palette has a beautifully sequined outside that opens down the middle and reveals a 25-pan eyeshadow palette in the middle, a panel with what looks like 2 blushes, a highlighter, and a bronzer, plus a panel with a lipstick, mascara, and eyeliner.

NYX Cosmetics is coming out with a Lip Liner and Matte Cream Set of 36 products for $55!!! FIFTY-FIVE DOLLARS!!! That’s like committing robbery and getting away with it!

If you like the NYX Cosmetics Soft Matte Metallics Lip Creams, you’re in luck!!! You will be able to get a set of 12 Lip Creams for $25! That’s an insane deal. Each of these is about half the size of a full one.

Real Techniques is coming out with two sets that look pretty awesome! First, pictured on the left, is You Glow Girl, a 15-piece brush and blending sponge (with a plastic container to keep it clean) set for $50.

The second set, pictured on the right, is Keep Calm + Merry On, a 7-piece set including five brushes, a blending sponge, and a plastic carrier retailing for $29.99. 

As good as Keep Calm + Merry On is, I think You Glow Girl is a far better deal. I love Real Techniques brushes but with all the makeup out there that needs purchasing, I tend to save my dinero instead of buying brushes. But a set like this is totally worth the moneh! You’re getting so much for $50! I also totally love the design on the brush handles! So festive!

Urban Decay is coming out with Hex Ready, a  set of five of travel-friendly 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils for $29! These come in 0.8g sizes. For reference, a full size 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil is 1.2g and costs $21, so you’re getting a pretty good deal! You’re getting the equivalent of three full-sized pencils for barely more than the cost of one! And in different colors to experiment with.

Bare Beauties is a lip trio featuring smaller versions of their Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Lipsticks ($22 each full size)(shades as yet unknown). Triple Threat features a trio of Stila’s Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow minis. Please note that similar sets for the same price points are currently available on Sephora.com.
