In the eyes of the beauty-obsessed, there's no such thing as too many visits to the new-arrivals pages of our favorite shopping sites. We may or may not have a few bookmarks dedicated to such a pastime. (What can we say? We're obsessed.) We'll look into seeing someone about that, but in the meantime, we'll stick to retail therapy.
After all, online shopping is the quickest way to satiate our wildest beauty cravings. This rings especially true when it comes to Ulta, the beauty mecca known for offering both prestigious brands and drugstore products. Since we consider ourselves seasoned virtual shoppers, we thought we should share with you the recent fresh finds we're dying to get two-day shipping on. Keep scrolling to see the most recent arrivals at Ulta.
I can personally attest to the Instagram-worthy prowess of this beach-ready "palette" from Nudestix. I recently watched celebrity makeup artist Mary Phillips (part mastermind behind the set) create a bronzed summer glow on Nudestix co-founder Taylor Frankel using these products, and the result was an angelic, luminescent, healthy glow, like she'd just gotten back from St. Tropez. The best part is you don't need to use any tools, just your fingers (but should you want a brush, there's a little buffing kabuki on the opposite end of the Nudies Matte, which can be applied all over the face).
The unique shape of this barrel allows you to clamp loose bends in your hair while the tool is open, as well as regular loose curls when the tool is closed into a regular barrel.
The ultimate summer shadow palette, this mix of taupes, gold, rust, and teal is basically a day at the beach in one easy-to-pack palette. And in true ColourPop fashion, each shade is high-impact.
We all know and love the Tangle Teezer, but this pineapple variation makes getting the knots out of your hair even better (and painless thanks to Tangle Teezer's flexible multi-teeth design).
If you've been looking to try chemical exfoliant like AHAs or BHAs but your skin is a bit too sensitive to handle it, this cream might be the answer. It utilizes PHAs (or polyhydroxy acids) to gently soften the skin and brighten your complexion minus the redness and irritation thanks also to niacinamide, which helps repair the skin's barrier.
Fan favorite Lash Blast Mascara has gotten even more of a boost with nourishing ingredients like coconut, avocado, and papaya oils to help actually condition your lashes while you artificially lengthen.
These sheer colors repair and strengthen while delivering a pretty veil of pastel color to your digits. Magic ingredients collagen and camellia repair brittleness and help protect nails from future damage.
It's Baby Foot but for $10 at Ulta and without the extended period of peeling. With these serum-filled booties, you place your feet in, let sit for 10 to 20 minutes, and then toss. The next morning, they'll be softer and silkier. We're going to start prepping now so our feet are sandal-ready.
Formulated specifically for aging skin, this tone-enhancing cream brings a healthy flush back into dull complexions. It's got a rosy tint (from Schizandra red berry) to feign a natural glow and bring life back into dull skin. The improvement isn't temporary, though—over time, the hydrating and resurfacing ingredients like shea butter, Schizandra sphenanthera fruit extract, and sunflower seed oil help smooth and soften skin for a suppler complexion.
We get it—oil in a dry shampoo doesn't exactly sound like the most logical move. But it's more nourishing than greasy. This mixture of coconut oil, essence of tiare, and vanilla bean extract helps to extend your style and sop up excess oil without any white residue.
Apple cider vinegar is an incredible natural scalp treatment and hair clarifier but concerning for those with color-treated hair. Thanks to Redken's new Color Extend Vinegar Hair Rinse, though, you can actually brighten and refresh your color, eliminating dull, brassy locks.
Ulta has really been stepping up its K-beauty game lately with tons of exciting new glow-inducing skincare products. We personally have tried and love this fizzing peel pad that exfoliates, brightens, and hydrates as you buff it gently along your skin. Just pour the vitamin contents of the small packet into the pouch, and then rub your entire face with the fiber side of the pad for one minute. Reverse the pad and use the soft side to pat the concentration into the skin, rinse, et voilà!
Urban Decay's cult-loved All Nighter setting spray now comes in powder form. You can mattify any foundation with this weightless powder that helps lock your formula in place all day long.
Our necks and chests often go neglected with skincare and SPF, but when neck bands and chest wrinkles start to formulate, we'll wish we had been more proactive. Cue this moisturizer that smooths, firms, and tones the skin with its plasma-rich formulation, as well as protects the skin with SPF 25.
Newcomer Triumph & Disaster brands itself as "logic and ritual for a life run wild." Its natural body wash with argan oil, rosewood, vitamin E, and kawakawa extract gently cleanses and moisturizes, leaving behind an intoxicating woodsy scent of fresh sandalwood and neroli.
