(More Deals Just Added) HOT New Beauty Deals: Macy's, Nordstrom, Kohl's, Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale and More

I hope you all are having a wonderful Christmas, if you celebrate! I only get to post my favorite meme ever once a year, so I wanted to take full advantage (that look on his face kills me).

I'm sneaking away from the festivities today to bring you one quick round-up of some new beauty deals (because beauty deals don't stop for holidays!). Actually, my brother is out of town for the holiday, so my family is postponing Christmas until 1/3 (we can't celebrate without him, nor would we want to!). So I'm really not whooping it up at all today, unless you count making some banana bread, watching Mr. G cook a roast, and cuddling on the couch binge-watching stuff on Netflix as "whooping it up". So yeah, I'm not being a martyr by blogging on Christmas--I just have some free time to do it, and you know I love sharing deals with you! And hey, now we can get on these deals before everybody else, right? So let's get to it:

LAST UPDATE: 12/28/15, 2:30PM PST.


  • Now through 1/2, CVS is offering 20% off sitewide with free 2-day shipping on all orders with code SAVE20. Discount does not apply to items on sale--only regular-priced items. (Thanks to several of you for that tip!)

  • Beauty Brands is having a $14.99 liter sale on salon haircare HERE. You can use EC11986 for an additional $3.50 off your $10 purchase. Also, check out their year-end sale HERE for lots of discounted items (you can use that code with clearance items too). Free shipping on orders $50+ and your choice of 3 free samples with every order. 


  • Sephora also keeps adding new items to their sale page HERE and I'm sure you know by now that you can use code EXTRA20 for an additional 20% off all items on the sale page (ends 1/1). DON'T FORGET that the Hakuho-do + Sephora PRO Brushes HERE are all back in stock and still BOGOFREE (code does not apply to those; just add at least two brushes to your cart and one will be free).

    • The annual Lush BOGOFREE sale is still going on HERE, and they have restocked many items (also still valid in-store). (Thanks to several of you for that tip!)



    • Now through 12/30 at Big Lots, use this coupon in-store to receive $10 off $50, $20 off $100, or $40 off $200 storewide.

    • Online now at Burt's Bees HERE, 40% off all holiday sets and some other nice deals. Free shipping on orders $49+.

    • LovelySkin still has 27% - 35% off almost every brand on their site HERE (click a brand to see the discount), including theBalm, bareMinerals, and tons of skincare. No code required. Free samples and free shipping on all orders, no minimum required. I received an email from them today stating that Obagi is 35% off right now, and in the future they cannot offer that brand at more than 15% off per manufacturer's request. So if you like Obagi skincare, now is the time to stock up. FYI, I received my LovelySkin order recently (I bought the Manizer Sisters Trio for $20.44 + free shipping and samples), and I could not have been more pleased with the ordering, shipping, and packaging. 


    • Now through 12/30, FragranceNet is having a year-end clearance event with 30% off sitewide with code CLYE5. Free gift with all orders (I believe it's a compact mirror right now).


    • Now through 12/31 on the Too Faced website HERE, receive 50% off all sale items. Free shipping on orders $50+. (Thanks to readers Marcy and Elizabeth for this tip!)

    • The Foreo Luna Mini has dropped to $99 at Ulta HERE (plus you'll get THIS free 15-piece bag with your $50+ purchase and free shipping) and Macy's HERE (two free gifts with purchase and free shipping; check item listing to see your free gifts). This is still $139 at Sephora. (Thanks to reader Mili for that tip!)

    • Speaking of Macy's, they have added even more items to their beauty sale page HERE. 50% off holiday gift sets from Philosophy, Origins, and more. Free everyday shipping on all beauty purchases. (Thanks to readers Gigi Lee and Leila for that tip!) The Origins Superstar Set HERE is now $37 (was $61, then reduced to $49.50, now $37). This set contains a full-sized 1.0 oz. Plantscription serum, which by itself retails for $58 on the Origins site.Plus don't forget to check out the gifts with purchase page HERE for freebies that you can possibly add to your order, depending on what you buy. 


    • Now through 12/31 on the Tarte website HERE, receive 15% off "almost everything" and free shipping on orders $25+ with code TARTE2015.

    • Now through 8AM EST on 12/29 in-store and on the Urban Outfitters site HERE, receive 40% off all clearance items sitewide, no code required (NOTE: the discount will appear AFTER you add a clearance item to your cart). This sale brings the Rosebud Salve Rose & Mandarin  Lip Balm down to $3.49 (retail: $8). See all clearance beauty items HERE. Free shipping on orders $50+ ($4.95 under $50).


    • LA Splash is having their $10 lipstick (and lashes) sale again HERE, now through 12/28. Free shipping on all orders, plus spend $50+ and receive a free full-size gift. (Thanks to reader KenKenBeauty for this tip!)

    • Right now on the Target website HERE, hundreds of items are up to 60% off (check in-store too for lots of great deals). You can click HERE to go to directly to the beauty clearance section (check item listings for possible codes for even more savings). Online, you can enter code EXTRA20 to receive an additional 20% off clearance clothes, shoes, and accessories--this code may work on beauty items too, depending on what you're ordering, so definitely give it a try! (Thanks to reader @fashionchicsta on Instagram for that tip!). 

    • Now through 12/29 on the Lancome site HERE, enter code THANKS to receive free shipping on any order, plus 20% off your order and 2 free samples. (Thanks to reader Jenn for this tip!)


    • Yves Rocher is currently offering 50% off sitewide HERE and you can enter code 15ROCHER for an additional 15% off your order. As always, tons of gifts with purchase (depending on how much you buy) and free shipping on orders $35+. (Thanks to reader Lcook for these tips!) As always, my number one recommendation during this event is THIS FRAGRANCE (you can read my full review HERE). And if you're a Lily of the Valley fan, THIS is my favorite Lily of the Valley fragrance of all time. I honestly cannot recommend it highly enough. If I could buy each one of you a bottle of both of these fragrances, I would. (This is in no way a paid endorsement; I'm just a huge, long-time fan of Yves Rocher fragrances. For the money, they're one of the best perfume houses in the world to me).



    • Over at Nordstrom Rack HERE, now through 1/3, receive an additional 25% off clearance items both online and in-store. As I've mentioned in the past, Nordstrom Rack does not have beauty products on their website, but in-store you may find some gems on clearance right now (Urban Decay, Stila, Essie, Smashbox, etc.) so if you're near a Nordstrom Rack before this sale is over, definitely pop in and see what you can find. Beauty clearance items vary wildly from store to store.


    • The Body Shop is also having an "Up to 75% off" sale HERE. Lots of items under $5, under $10, and under $20, plus 40% off best-sellers. Free shipping on orders $50+. 

    • BH Cosmetics added some new items to their end of year sale HERE. Use code RMN5 for an extra 5% off storewide. Free shipping on orders $50+.

    10. We are also doing Xmas in January as my mother had to work today and coincidentally aremalso binging on Netfilx. I really must recommend the Black Mirror White Christmas episode they released today. So good! The whole series really. If u haven't checked it out yet, it is definitely a must see.

      1. Oh that is too funny! I LOVE Black Mirror! I've watched every episode probably 3x over by now (including the Christmas special..JON HAMM!!). I cannot wait for the new season...it feels like we've been waiting five years now already! I heard that since Netflix is producing the show now, it will be a much longer season with more episodes this year. Yay!! :)

    11. Ulta has the new highly hyped l'oreal colour riche single eyeshadows on sale. Also they have the new maybelline liquid lipsticks on sale buy 1 get one half off. A lot of other new maybelline products are up on their website as well. For some reason, I was able to still use my 20% coupon too that was supposed to expire yesterday so got a good deal on new upcoming makeup!

      4. Thank you so much, Lcook. I really appreciate that! And thank you for the code! Will add to listing! Whenever I get an email from them, I assume that all the deals/codes in the email are for subscribers only (as is the case with many of their emails), so I didn't even look for a code that everyone can use, since I didn't there was one. This helps so much!! Happy holidays to you! xo

    16. Lawdddd I love your blog!! I'm so mad I went to buy the Bold Metals brushes from Khols, added them to my cart with the promo code, and didn't check out right away and somewhere around 3am the code expired :(

      But I had to order Vice 4 from Sephora since I missed the $27 deal from the UD website! $39 with shipping is still a great deal!! Plus my birthday gift, VIB welcome package, and all those free samples don't hurt either :)

      Thank you so much for all the hard work you do putting this all together, you have no idea how much money I've saved from deals you've posted! Happy Holidays, G ❤️

      1. Oh no!! Did you miss my post about the Sephora sale, girlie? Scroll back a few posts on my homepage (or click the first link in this post), because you can enter code EXTRA20 for an additional 20% off all items on the Sephora sale page right now! That will bring the price of the UD Vice palette to $31.20 instead of $39!! Call them ASAP and see if they can adjust the price for you! :)

        And happy holidays to you too, love! xo

    17. LA splash cosmetics $10 lipstick sale is back! If you missed the black friday. (You can also use an affiliate code if your comfortable with using one, to so save an extra 10% off. I ended up paying $45 for 5 lippies + free shipping instead of $50 + free shipping).

    19. That picture..I'm dead, dead I tell you! I showed it to the mister and told him that's exactly what he'd look like if he ever wore a sweater or we had a cat :-) I just might look for a clearance Norwegian-esque sweater and have him pose with our version of grumpy cat, which is actually a midget English bulldog (sister to the alcoholic one in my profile pic). I missed the brushes on Kohl's. I was too busy frothing at the mouth over the purses. Darn it. G, you should have used this unique set of holiday dates to get twice the gifts from Mr. G. I am a bad influence though. Sorry Mr. G! Hope everyone had a fab holiday.

        And you know, I SHOULD have worked this postponed holiday to my advantage. lol! But seriously, he gave me a wonderful birthday/Christmas gift that I had been wanting forever...I think I'm going to do a blog post about it because it's just beautiful. :)

      Happy Holidays everyone, and G I hope you feel better soon. I'm getting over my own winter bug and I know how much it sucks. Especially at such an exciting time of year. Will you be going out for NYE?
