If you thought today was just going to be another summer Wednesday, you’d be wrong. It’s actually Ulta Beauty’s “Forever Fabulous Sale.” If you thought the “Forever Fabulous Sale” would last forever, you’d be wrong again. Despite its name, this sale is only happening for one day only, and that’s today, August 7. But in better news, things are up to 50 percent off, the sale spans across all categories (skin care, makeup, hair-care, tools), it includes a bunch of special sets, and it’s only online, meaning you don’t have to physically go anywhere or pick anything up; just click to your heart’s content. Time is extremely of the essence and things are already selling out, so here are eight deals to add to your cart as soon as humanly possible. Godspeed.

Living Proof Texture Mist

If your hair dries limp and straight, with no attitude, this spray is for you. This texture mist tousles your hair, adding soft bends without any stickiness.

Lancôme Énergie de Vie The Illuminating & Purifying Exfoliating Mask

Lancôme products never ever go on sale. This one is a mask and exfoliator in one. Both the tiny exfoliator particles (jojoba beads) and the moisturizing mask work together to get you super soft skin.

Tigi Bed Head Masterpiece Shine Hairspray

Normally this cult-favorite formula, which holds your hair without drying it out, goes for upward of 20 bucks. Today, it’s a third of the price.

Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud Mask

This mud mask sucks up blackheads like a vacuum cleaner, soaks up oil, and won’t stain your bathroom.

Estée Lauder DayWear Anti-Oxidant 72H-Hydration Sorbet Creme Broad Spectrum SPF 15

Your skin needs a lighter moisturizer for hotter weather. This intriguingly named “hydration sorbet” is a gel that has the hydration punch of a cream moisturizer. If you love the feel of Sunday Riley’s Tidal Cream, this is a dupe. It not only moisturizes for 72 hours, it also protects against the sun and everyday pollutants.

NuMe Silhouette Hair Straightener

This lesser-known straightener brand is one of Ulta’s most popular, with nearly 114 five-star reviews. The straightener’s ceramic plates are rounded, offering you the choice between flowy curls and pin-straight hair.

Smashbox Cover Shot Eyeshadow Palette in Petal Metal

A couple Smashbox eye-shadow palettes are on sale today, but we like this one best. It works for every skin tone and eye color, and is versatile enough for a nude daytime look and a nighttime smoky eye.

Philosophy Renewed Hope In A Jar

Back in the day, this moisturizer was one of Oprah’s Favorite Things. Launching it to cult status, Oprah said that dabbing it on felt like giving her skin some water. Put very simply, it’s a moisturizer that works.
