There is no telling what the next week, let alone the next couple of months, hold. But if there’s one piece of advice worth repeating right now, it’s this: stay ready so you don’t have to get ready. And as someone who is all about protecting her positive vibes, I’m going to assume the upcoming summer will include plenty of nights out and day trips to the beach, all of which I’ll want to get gussied up for, just because. Thankfully, the universe appears to be on my side, because an avalanche of new Ulta products launching in April is not only summer-ready but affordable too.
Beyond that, some of these drops are undeniably unique and worthy of a double-take alone. For instance, I just have to know if the body version of tarte’s Shape Tape concealer is as good as the under-eye makeup. And AG Hair has harnessed the brightening benefits of vitamin C in a way I couldn’t have predicted. Ahead, more on these two newbies and other budget-friendly products you can shop on Ulta Beauty’s website this month and beyond.
AG Hair Reconstruct Vita C Mask
If you thought vitamin C was only beneficial to the skin, think again. AG Hair’s latest haircare range has already got me excited for summer with an intense reparative mask, as well as cleanser and conditioner, all infused with vitamin C, squalane and protein for stronger and shinier hair.

Included in Alterna’s new vegan “My Hair My Canvas” line is a antioxidant-rich multitasking hair gloss that not only locks in moisture but provides heat protection when you want to use a flat iron, blow dryer or other hot tools.
