Cyber Monday has officially arrived, and Ulta has added a new slew of products to its sale. There are plenty of new deals from some of our favorite brands — including Tarte, Urban Decay, Anastasia Beverly Hills, and Lime Crime, just to name a few — which 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 microcurrent devices to help you replicate your favorite facial in the comfort of your own bathroom. Ulta is also offering $10 off purchases of $50 or more with code CYBERMON19. And they’re even throwing in free gifts with purchase. 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.

Skin Care

This lightweight, moisturizing gel-cream has been recommend by (our) experts for dry, mature skin, and even oily skin. The key ingredient is hyaluronic acid which, as one dermatologist explains, “acts like a sponge to pull in water to the outer skin layer to hydrate and plump, even improving the appearance of some fine lines.”

Now is a good time to stock up on an excellent everyday, gentle cleanser that is great for oily skin.


Though initially skeptical, Rio writes that she did actually “notice a difference in the ‘natural contour’ of [her] face” and that “the elasticity in [her] skin was tauter” after using the Nuface — and right now, it’s 25 percent off.

If all that festive indulging is leaving your skin looking a bit stressed, this trio of masks should help clear out your pores.

“Though the derma roller looks terrifying (I mean, it’s literally covered in spikes), it actually doesn’t hurt,” Rio writes. “Regarding the results, I’ll say this: After using this dermal roller for a couple of weeks after cleansing but before putting on my Cosrx snail mucin, I’ve rid myself of acne scars that have been there for years. Happy (and stunned) to say this product is legit.”

When you see Sunday Riley’s Good Genes on sale, you don’t wait.

This mask contains centella asiatica extract, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, peptides, acai berry extract, and black ginseng extract to nourish skin.

“No. 7’s Restore & Renew face-and-neck multi-action serum contains retinol, and it’s really hydrating,” dermatologist Whitney Bowe told us. “You can imagine that if it’s gentle enough to use on the neck, which is so sensitive, it’s really great for people with very dry skin.”

“Not only does this oil do a great job of removing makeup, it also happens to be one of the best products for getting rid of stubborn blackheads,” promises Rio.

An affordable rose quartz roller to boost circulation and reduce puffiness.

This all-natural, reef-friendly mineral spray sunscreen has a non-greasy, matte finish.

Now is a good time to stock up on an excellent do-it-all cream, also endorsed by Rio, who says it is “nourishing without at all being sticky or pore-clogging, and it penetrates deeply to make skin look brighter, and even more healthy. Any time I’m dealing with inflammation or acne, this moisturizer is my go-to for combating that horrible creeping redness.”

“Besides being super-hydrating, it has a cooling effect, so it feels amazing to wear as a night cream on hot nights,” says former Strategist writer Lori Keong.

This gel moisturizer is a favorite of model Devon Lee Carlson, who told us “it feels like drinking a glass of orange juice: nice and refreshing.”

According to senior writer Karen Adelson, “the company’s signature blend of CBD, manuka honey, and vitamin E” will help brighten the delicate skin around the eyes.

A gentle but effective cleansing brush at a more-affordable price point.

We haven’t seen the Foreo Luna Mini 2 this cheap since Prime Day, so we recommend snapping it up quickly.

This scrub has notes of bergamot, mandarin, rose, jasmine, peach, strawberry, musk, and amber.


Real Techniques is one of Rio’s favorite “trusty yet affordable” brush brands. This set has everything you need to apply your foundation and concealer — for less than the price of one MAC brush.

Rio’s (shockingly cheap) dupe for Hourglass’s Scattered Light eye shadow also happens to be Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s favorite eye shadow.

“I don’t know how they did it, but it curls even the straightest, shortest lashes I work on and keeps them that way,” says makeup artist Amanda Shackleton. The mascara also contains provitamin B5 and serine to condition your lashes and prevent breakage.

Tarte’s Tarteist Double Take Eyeliner has been former writer Lori Keong’s “go-to weatherproof eyeliner,” for years. “It’s one that I’ve reserved for dates and special occasions — it even held up once through a sudden crying jag (don’t ask).”

“I honestly don’t know where my acne and I would be without this concealer from Tarte,” writes Rio. “It’s dewy and blendable so that blemishes never look dry or crusty, and is also extremely full coverage.”

Not only is this lip liner waterproof and long-wearing, it also has a built-in sharpener.

A cult-favorite lipstick that adapts to your natural coloring and transforms into a universally flattering rosebud pink when on. According to writer Simone Kitchens, “This stuff has a nice stain-y effect that seems to last for hours. And it gives my lips, which are the same color as my skin and just fade into my face, this natural pinkness.”

This concealer stick makes it on Rio’s list of best makeup for acne-prone skin because it’s “perfect for the no-makeup-makeup-oh-wait-I-have-to-conceal-this-zit girl.”

Just because it’s wintertime doesn’t mean you can’t fake a sun-kissed glow.

It’s never a bad time to replenish your dry shampoo stores.

According to hairstylist Fred Connors, “This shampoo is formulated like much more expensive designer brands with ethically sourced ingredients,” including Bulgarian rose and Amazonian murumuru butter, which nourishes hair and gives it loads of shine.

The DpHUE Apple Cider Vinegar Sea Salt Scalp Scrub is infused with aloe vera and avocado oil to soothe sensitive scalps, apple cider ingredient to restore scalp pH, and pink Himalayan sea salt to remove dead skin cells.

“If you ask a group of beauty editors what the best eyelash serum is, chances are they’ll recommend GrandeLash, a nightly product that promises noticeable results in just four weeks,” writes Rio, who credits the serum for helping her grow out her traumatized, torn-out lashes. This set also comes with a travel-size thickening mascara.
