While our relationship with Sephora is still going strong, there's always room for more great loves in our lives. Namely, Ulta Beauty. The beauty destination serves up exciting, innovative, and wildly popular products for budget-friendly prices, and we admittedly can't get enough.
As we close out the year and look forward to 2017, we can't help but look back on the products that pleased the most beauty-obsessed patrons… and buy them immediately. We worked with Ulta Beauty to find the top five contenders—products with thousands of positive reviews and even more purchases. These are the crème de la crème, so keep scrolling to find out which made the list.
I mean, of course, this glowy, metallic palette made the list. It's the pearlescent, sparkly, shimmering accessory our faces and eyelids have been dreaming of for, well, ever. Say hello to six limited-edition, easy-to-blend powder highlighters that can be layered together, worn separately, and used on your cheeks, eyes, brows, and Cupid's bow.
With a soft matte finish and a silky, easy-to-apply texture, this $6 (!) offering falls somewhere in between a lipstick and a gloss. It comes in every color you could ever want, but we're partial to this dusty nude à la Kylie Jenner.
Blackheads plague us all, right? Luckily these (absolutely adorably packaged) nose patches will slough out blocked follicles, remove blackheads, and clean out your pores in just minutes.
What's better than sex? This mascara. Stay with me now. The formula is carbon black and coats your lashes in a lush, collagen-infused formula while the hourglass brush curls, volumizes, and lengthens better than perhaps any other mascara I've ever tried. Get into it.
