One time on the blog I shared The Best Sephora Buys Under $20 and it's been such a popular post over the years, that I decided to share a similar one today.

 My love for Ulta has grown, and I love that you can get a variety of products- both budget and high-end, all in one place. Today I'm sharing my 15 favorite Ulta buys under $15! They're in no particular order and are all equally amazing...enjoy!
Voluminous Lash Primer- I have been using this for a while and it makes ALL the difference for my lashes. It really enhances my mascara and makes my eyelashes pop. I curl one eye, apply the primer, curl the other, apply the my brows and then put on my mascara. I think letting it sit for a little bit makes it work best.

Maybelline Sculpting Brow Mascara- For years I used Benefit brow products, until I found this great dupe for the 3D Brow for a fraction of the price. I find this product easier to use and more natural than a brow pencil. My brows were micro-bladed over a year ago- but sometimes I like a little more definition and use this brow mascara. 

NYX Butter Gloss- My absolute favorite drug-store gloss. I have it in SO many colors and there's usually a great BOGO at Ulta where you can scoop a few up at a time for really cheap! My favorite natural color is Angel Food Cake. 
Pressed Banana Powder- A semi-recent random pick-up that I am now obsessed with. It can be used for multiple things which is amaaaazing- an under eye- setting powder, an eye-shadow base, a finishing powder, a concealer for under your eyes and a basic highlighter. I use it most under my eyes to set my concealer and love how it helps brighten everything. SUCH a good buy!

Otter Aqua Mask Sheet- I've become a huge fan of sheet masks- they are so easy for clean up which I love and perfect for traveling. This particular one from SNP is super hydrating and also hilarious to wear. I love the animal ones!

Egg White Pore Mask- Once or twice a week I try to remember to use masks, especially if I have a big event the next day. This egg white pore mask makes my skin feel wonderful- it helps remove pore clogging oil and tighten your skin. For the price- this is one to definitely pick up.

Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara- This isn't the first time I've talked about Essence mascara, but it's worth the mention again. Mascara is definitely my top favorite beauty product and I always wear this after my primer and before another one. I usually top off with a mascara that helps lengthen lashes or makes them stand out- my latest favorites for this are Stila Huge Extreme Lash and YSL Babydoll. The Essence is such a steal and I won't go without it now. 
Da Bomb Bath Fizzer's- I think we can all agree LUSH is Queen Bee when it comes to bath bombs but I found some that may be almost as fun. These bath fizzer's have prizes inside and the names and colors are so cute. I pick them up for Ethan from time to time and he always leaves me the prize which is super adorable. These lather and smell great too. 

Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat- I've been using this one for years, and needed a new bottle and when I was in Ulta last week it happened to be on sale-- and still is! This top coat works wonderfully giving a nice shine and dries super quick. 
Batiste Dry Shampoo- Batiste has been my go to for a long time. I am a huge fan of dry shampoo and since my hair is so coarse and textured I only have to wash it about twice a week. This may sound gross to some people, but it's actually better for your hair. I've tried a TON of dry shampoo brands and Batiste always comes out on top- I love that there are so many different scents and some for dark hair too. 

Winky Lux Flower Balm- These lip balms are so pretty and smell SO good and make my lips so soft. Such a great and fun purchase!

Mario Badescu Facial Spray- So many friends talked about this product frequently, and I finally picked some up last Summer. I think I used more than half the bottle in just a 3 month time span. It is a great refresher and pick me up through the day. You can also use it to set make-up and on dry hair. 
China Glaze Nail Polish- My favorite budget nail polish brand for their awesome bold colors. I tend to paint my nails at home weekly and China Glaze always holds up the longest, after Smith and Cult- which is another wonderful (but more pricey) brand. Such a variety of fun colors to choose from!

Urban Decay Priming Spray- I got a sample of this in an order from Sephora and became addicted quick. In the warmer months I don't need as thick of a moisturizer so priming sprays are always a great option for my skin. This spray smells SO good and makes me feel like I'm on the beach and works wonders too. 

Poo-Pourri Toilet Spray- So I have heard about this one for years and never used it. I got this on the go size for Christmas from one of my friends in a gift bag and cracked up- it's so perfect. I then got one for Chuck with his Valentine's gifts. Hey- whatever works! Don't knock it 'till you try it friends.
So there you have it my 15 favorite Ulta buys under $15. Tell me your favorite budget friendly purchase!
