New Beauty Sales & Deals (e.l.f., Sephora, BH Cosmetics, Urban Decay)

So many things going on today, I don't know where to begin! Let's start with the code I always look forward to seeing from e.l.f.:

It's baaack! Free shipping on ALL ORDERS on the e.l.f. website with code SHIP4FREE, now through 8/25. No minimum order required, no mental gymnastics required! (Sometimes it takes me a while to figure out how much I need to spend when it comes to other e.l.f. promos, but this one requires none of that!).

Keep reading for more new beauty deals and promos from Sephora, BH Cosmetics, and Urban Decay...

Thanks to reader @thecouponqueeeen on Instagram for this tip. Right now on the Urban Decay website, when you spend $30+ you'll receive a FREE Breathless Build Your Own Palette and a deluxe sample Matte Revolution Lipstick in Matte Bad Blood. Valid now through 8/29 (or while supplies last).

NOTE: When originally available, the Breathless palette did indeed come with a full-size Breathless eyeshadow (click here for pics of the palette and shadow). I do NOT know if this freebie offer will come with the Breathless eyeshadow, but I'm assuming it will. If getting the eyeshadow is a make-or-break deal for you, please contact UD customer service and live-chat before ordering!

Now through 8/28 on the BH Cosmetics site, spend $25+ and receive free shipping and a free brush set with code FREEBRUSHES (there is no description of the brush set on their website, so I guess it's a mystery set). 

New Sephora Favorites Brow Raising Brow Wardrobe
(available in two shade options)

I saw this new Sephora Favorites set in @lipstickjunkieforever's feed on Instagram and I wanted to make sure you knew that it was now available on the Sephora website. This set comes in two options: Light/Medium or Medium/Dark. And as @lipstickjunkieforever confirmed, you get 4 full-size products, 1 deluxe sample, tweezers, and a mirror in each set. 

ALSO: I know I mentioned this a few days ago, there are lots and lots of awesome deals on the Sephora sale page right now. Seriously, check them out here. They seem to be adding new things regularly, so try to check that page a few times a day if you can--you never know what you may find!


  1. Is the free shipping on ELF better than when they have 40% off promos? I'm trying to debate on whether I want to order things that I've been eyeing. Sometimes the 40% promo is annoying because you have to order at least a certain amount after the % is applied for it to work.

    1. I can't speak for everyone, but for me? Yes. For the reasons you outlined in your comment. I rarely ever want $30+ of elf products at a time, so those 40% off promos don't pull me in, when you have to spend at least $30 before the discount to get free shipping (and the discount). If I have to buy things just to hit a threshold, then I'd rather wait and pay full price and just get the things I want, with free shipping, when they offer free shipping codes like this that have no restrictions. That personally is a better deal, but if you already had $30+ worth of stuff you wanted, then by all means wait for the next 40% off sale. BUT, just remember that the 40% off sales rarely, if ever, include new products. So if you want anything new, get it now with this code. :)

    2. Thanks G! Most of the things I want to try out are new items. I did notice in the last 40% off sale that it did not include new items. I was pretty upset along with other customers lol.

    3. And also, the thing about these "new" items *sigh. Some of them have been out for several months now to not be considered that new anymore. That's what really irked me about that last 40% off sale.

  2. I bit the bullet on that free shipping deal on e.l.f. I need setting powder and opted to try the contouring palette and two new brushes. A couple more items and I'd have been in the normal free shipping range, but I opted not to get any new lipsticks, though I want some of those new shades!

  3. Gotta love Urban Decay Primer Potion in the previous squeeze tube on sale for $10. Not sure how long it will last, since it seems they are just clearing out old stock.
