Your Guide to Budget-Friendly Cosmetics Since 2009
I ended up buying the new Tartelette palette, some new OPI nail polishes (to get the GWP), and qualified for the $60 gift bag. The bag was more enticing to me since there are some coupons included (including one to the salon which is a service I actually use there).Totally didn't realize these deals started today. It seems a lot of retailers this year are spreading out the deals all month or the week or so leading up to Black Friday. It's kinda overwhelming!
Awesome! Congrats on the great haul! And yes, retailers are really stepping it up this year! :)
What's so insane about these deals, G? There's literally nothing on the list that interests me. Really disappointed.
Same here, I was really hyped. Been saving up a lot to spend so I hope they bring their A game on Black Friday. Sephora usually does, I will probably wait till then.
Six 50% off deals (including the IT Cosmetics shadow brush), eleven 40% off deals, a BOGOFREE on select Makeup Revolution, and the early release of the LORAC Riesling Romance palette is all pretty insane to me, given that, during the rest of the year, just one or two 50% off sales at the same time gets a lot of us excited! The fact that there's even more than what I listed above, plus GWPs and coupons is pretty great. Sorry nothing jumped out at you, but that just means you have more money for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, right?
I think I was hoping for the kind of deals that Sephora will have - higher end products for really low prices (I'm okay with some of them being travel size since they're usually still a great deal). I can get a lot of that at lower prices throughout the year as long as I keep my eye out and bank rewards.I'm happy to see others have been able to take advantage of it, though.
You are right G. I appreciate the heads up. Going to try the makeup revolution line and that IT cosmetic brush, stock up on some John Frieda products, and maybe a pallete! How exciting!!!
Thanks, Gabriela. :) I'm pretty excited about this too! That IT Cosmetics deal makes that brush about the same price as a Real Techniques brush! Also, I'm eyeing those Z-Palettes. ;)
Been eyes some Z Palettes, glad I waited! Grabbed two zebra large palettes and one domed palette, and I'm going to try out some Boots Botanics & Neutrogena skin care, including the ultra light cleasing oil you recommended. Qualified for the $60 sampler bag too, which I'm super happy about. This is my first time posting but I want to thank you for all the work you do here on the blog! You make my life a lot easier with all of your great updates and reviews. This is by far my favorite blog and I check for new posts every single morning, as well as throughout the rest of my day! Love ya lots, thanks so much for everything G. :D
Hi Zulia! So nice to see your comment here for the first time (hope to hear from you again the future!). Thank you SO much for the kind words--I'm thrilled that you enjoy the blog, and grateful that you check it multiple times a day! Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. I love you right back! xoPS: Please let me know what you think of that cleansing oil when you try it? :)
Hey G! I'm generally pretty shy about posting on my favorite blogs and video but I'll be sure to try to keep commenting here, since it's lovely to see a reply from you! :) Thanks for everything you do, once again! PS: I will! Still patiently waiting for my package to arrive!
G., I got just as excited about all the 40% and 50% off items, too! I went crazy on my John Freida shampoo/conditioner, grabbed some Mario Badescu and Nip/Fab skincare I'd been eyeing, the IT cosmetics brush, so many Revlon Super Lustrous at $2.99, and treated myself to a Stila palette -- plus the $60 free gift looks awesome!! I am more than pleased.
Ulta doesn't accept international credit cards, even my shipping address is on USA :( so sad eevrytime Ulta get all these aamzing deals! I would love to get a lot of these offers!!
Well, there goes $150! Got some things that I've wanted for awhile though, so I'm happy! ☺
The riesling romance palette?! It better not sell out before I get home. That is my number one want!
I've purchased so much makeup lately (your blog is partially to blame for that ;) ) so I'm trying to resist these deals but the Showstopper palette is calling me name!
Thank you! Got a Stila palette and 4 revlon lipsticks. So appreciate you!
If all I got from this sale (although I'm buying more.... sigh) was the Lorac Riesling palette, I'd be thrilled. Guess I am easily amused. Thanks for the heads-up although I get the emails from Ulta too. :-D
Well, I **wanted** to buy more. I can't buy anything -- this morning the site would never accept my payment and now I can't log in at all. I wish when they run big sales they'd have the server capacity or whatever. Very frustrating. :-(
You can stack coupons! I just placed an order and I used the $10 off $60 on top of the $3.50 off $10 coupons. Score!
How did you do that? It is not letting me. In order to add another coupon code - I have to remove the first one.
Never mind. I just got it to work. I used the $5 off $15 ( 205730 ) code and the $10 off $60.. thanks a bunch for posting this, supermom.
How do you do that
Clash Dash, Supermom, How do you do that? I have a birthday coupon and a $3.50 off $10.
And that is that...I just ordered my first-ever high-end makeup from Ulta... How could I not, for those prices??? I got the Lorac Riesling palette, the Urban Decay Ammo palette, and the Too Faced lipstick duo (which was basically a BOGO)... I think these were *GREAT* deals!!
I got the resilng, stila, IT brush , 2 z palettes and a bunch of revlon lipsticks. I got a free HD lipstick with purchase and the beauty bag, along with triple platinum points and another free sample. I also went thru ebates.
I spent $179.76, then added up what I would have spent without deals and coupons and it would have been $393.52! I made a cart, then separated them so I could get the $10 off $60 twice! Got a lot of people checked off my Christmas list with this sale, thanks for the reminder!
I actually think that some of the deals are amazing!Here is a detailed explanation of what I just purchased and received as a gift at Ulta Beauty sale:#1: URBAN DECAY Ammo Palette – $16#2: URBAN DECAY On the Run Palette – $32#3: LORAC Riesling Romance Eye Shadow Palette – $15#4: OPI All Star Treatment 4 Pc Mini Kit – $16.95OPI Top Coat – $9.50Four Super Lustrous Lipsticks – $2.99 eachI received the following gifts with purchase:20-pc Berry Glam Beauty Bag – $125 valueColor Paints Mini Kit – $32 valueRevlon HD Lipstick – $8.99 valueRevolution High-Color LipglossEyeshadow Primer PotionThis purchase lead me to $101.41 subtotal with free shipping. I also used the coupon code 308880 to receive a $3.50 off purchase. With the taxes, I paid $106.60 total.In my opinion, it's not a bad deal at all! I am stocking up on eye shadow palettes as those are the best holiday gifts!
I am worried that I am becoming jaded - nothing really jumped out at me from this sale.
After much debating, I settled on two of the Mally eyeliners in Sailor and Black Cherry, the Butter London cool palette, the Mario Badescu rose water spray, and from Boots a hand cream with SPF, a mascara and the micellar water. A $5 off $15 coupon from RMN brought me down to $60 and a few cents, so I also squeaked into the free samples bag (and of course free shipping). Phew!
I love your blog so much. I've gotten so many great deals because of you. Thanks so much!
Thank you for the update last night! It was funny! :) I was like, "Oh my gosh, this is not a drill!!" I bought my first high end palette for $24.00! Thanks a lot!
I though there were some great deals! I spent $60 and purchased the It brush, 2 revlon lipsticks, new RT version of beauty blender, 2 China glaze nail polishes (received additional 3 free full size festive shades), 2 Not your mother hair products, 2 Shea moisture hair products, 2 Hask hair products, a RT kobuki brush, sexy hair travel size spray treatment, free silver sample bag. I used the $10 off coupon, $3 in rewards, and recieved triple points.If I needed eye shadow, those palettes would have been mine- those are a great deal! The Riesling one looks promising but i already have 2 Naked palettes.
I got the Tarte Showstopper palette, a large Z Palette (had to get the yellow one because the other colors sold out), 2 packs of square z Palette stickers, 2 UD Ammo Palettes (one for me, one as a Christmas gift for my cousin, I've been thinking of getting this palette for a while), and a glass file. I picked the pink sample bag. It said I earned like 424 points on the order, which would put me near 1,500 points. I'm hoping to get to 2,000 and get $125 of free stuff lol.
I am currently super frustrated as the sale prices EXPIRED EARLY!!! The emails specified the end time as 11:59 CT yet when I went to check out well before that the sale prices in my cart disappeared, nearly doubling my total. Needless to say I did not proceed with my order & instead wrote a polite but spirited email to customer service. Grrrrrr.......
i am very dissapointed also!!!!
