Are we the only ones who feel as if we’ve spent all of our earthly dollars on beauty products this summer? From humidity-fighting sprays to powerful SPFs, the last few months have called for a shit-ton of skin care and makeup products, and our bank accounts are officially crying for mercy.
But just as we were about to practice complete self-control and rein in the spending (at least until fall), Ulta went ahead and dropped its newest August arrivals. Spoiler alert: Bye, budget goals.
After reviewing Ulta’s entire new arrivals section, we’ve got good news and bad news. First, the bad: We found so many excellent products that every ounce of self-discipline has gone out the window until further notice.
Now for the good news: We narrowed down our top five under-$15 products, including a creamy highlighter from Soap & Glory and a lightweight, matte lipstick from Tarte. And because there’s no way we can actually hold back, don’t forget to stop by next month for our September favorites.
