All the Best Ulta Black Friday Deals

Black Friday has officially arrived, and Ulta, as we predicted, has some really good deals on makeup, beauty products, skin care, and more. Plenty of products from some of our favorite brands — including Tarte, Urban Decay, Anastasia Beverly Hills, and Lime Crime, just to name a few — are offering up to half-off their most beloved favorites. If skin care is more your game, they’ve got plenty of products to stock up on (or try for the very first time), as well as some deeply discounted gadgets, like motorized facial-cleansing brushes and at-home microdermabrasion, to help you replicate your favorite facial in the comfort of your own bathroom.

And while it’s easy to get caught up in the plethora of makeup and skin-care deals, there are also a lot of extremely good hair-care discounts. We are particularly impressed by the prices on some of our favorite, generally frustratingly expensive curlers, straighteners, and hair dryers. And if you just need a new shampoo or styling product, there are plenty of those, too.

We also suggest taking a peek at some of the Ulta-exclusive, holiday edition gift sets, whether you’re looking to splurge on your loved ones or yourself. A caveat with these: holiday sets come in very limited quantities, so don’t, as we like to say, dillydally. We will be updating this page with any new deals that pop up, but you can also follow us on Twitter for more timely sales coverage.
