New Ways to Save on Smashbox (All with Free Shipping)

So I was checking out the Nordstrom site (everyday free shipping on all orders) for new Holiday 2015 value sets (of which there are MANY, including new holiday value sets from Beauty Blender, Stila, and much more, which you can check out HERE), and I spotted these two new Smashbox mini sets for $10 each. As of the time of this post, these are not available on the Smashbox site or Sephora site, although the listings do not state that these are Nordstrom Exclusives.

  • The Art.Love.Color Shadow Set ($10 + free shipping) comes with a mini Photo Op Eyeshadow Trio in Sepia featuring Alabaster (bisque), Antique (grey plum) and Clay (rich plum), (0.04 oz. total), and a Travel Shadow Brush. For perspective, regular MAC eyeshadow singles are also 0.04 oz., but keep in mind that you get three colors in this Smashbox mini, so imagine dividing a regular MAC eyeshadow into three different shades--that's a small amount per shade, but definitely enough to give you an idea if you might want to make a full-size purchase. Plus, you get a travel brush.

(NOTE: there is an $18 mini value set on the Sephora site, but the only thing that set has in common with these two sets is the foundation primer.)

Don't forget that you get your choice of three free beauty samples with your beauty purchase on the Nordstrom site, and Nordstrom is still price-matching that Lord & Taylor sale through 10/27 as well (click here if you need info about that). 

Next up, I want to thank reader Marcy for the heads-up about the current clearance sale over on the Smashbox website (free shipping on all orders). The Double Exposure Palette is now $39 (regularly $52) and there are some other deals as well. 

Also, I've been hearing from some of you who are still finding some great deals in-store at Nordstrom Rack on various Smashbox products so, if you live near a Nordstrom Rack, you might want to pop over. There are also lots of Urban Decay, Stila, etc. deals being spotted at Nordstrom Rack right now, if that gives you extra incentive for a trip!


  1. There are different mini sets at Macys too! I saw a 2 lip gloss sets for $18 and $20 and a primer set for $19. Gotta love that free shipping.

    1. Ooooh thank you!! I totally missed those (and I was on the Macy's site like crazy today! What's up with that?? Lol!).

    2. Ooooh thank you!! I totally missed those (and I was on the Macy's site like crazy today! What's up with that?? Lol!).

  2. If ANYONE is interested, the Smashbox primer and water set is available with $25 purchase at, pretty points bonus is another .25oz primer. You get 2 free sample packets and free ship regularly. The set offer is available until 10/28 11:59 pt. Let's Do Lunch 9-2pm pt is usually min $40 but you can get 2 more samples with that.
