theBalm clearance deals at Kohl's

I have some great clearance sightings to share with you today, thanks to three lovely readers. So let's get right into it!


First up, many thanks to reader @swatchesgalore on Instgram for kindly sharing the pic above of her theBalm haul from Kohl's this week. These clearance items rang up for even less in the system than what you see on the price tags:
  • theBalm Hawaii Face Palette (Eyeshadow Autobalm Palette) for $3.60 (marked $6; originally $15) 
  • theBalm La Bamba Palette for $3.60 (marked $6; originally $15)
  • theBalm Meet Matt(e) Hughes Duo for $21 (these are not on clearance; this is a value set that is only available in-store; remember that these lip colors retail for $17 individually)

Next up, reader Unknown kindly left this hot tip on the You Tell Me page yesterday:
Hey G, Just wanted to let you know that I just found the Balm Manizer Sisters palette on sale at Kohl's for $11.20 plus an additional 40% off which brought the price to $6.72. I found four of them and purchase two. Love your blog!!

Yes, that's $6.72 for the Manizer Sisters Trio. I probably don't need to remind you that this trio regularly retails for $28. That's a mind-blowing deal if you can find it!

If your Kohl's store has an extended beauty department, I highly recommend paying them a visit ASAP to see if you can find any of the above deals. These deals are IN-STORE ONLY--the prices are not reduced on the Kohl's website. If you find any of these items at your store and you don't see clearance stickers, ask a sales associate to scan them for you to check the price in the system!


Many thanks to reader @elle5680 on Instagram for the tip about these:
Select fragrances are on clearance right now as well. There may be more deals in-store, but online I found the following:

I also noticed that the Pur Minerals Start Now Makeup Kit (all shades) is reduced to $19.50 (regularly $39), but I think that's been reduced for a while now.

Don't forget: you can use Kohl's Cash toward prestige beauty purchases. Also, now through 3/9, "everyone gets $10 Kohl's Cash for every $50 spent in store, online, at a Kohl's Kiosk or with the Kohl's App on all sale-, regular- and clearance-priced merchandise!" (that quote is directly from the Kohl's homepage).

Thanks so much, @swatchesgalore, Unknown, and @elle5680, for the hot tips. I really appreciate it!


  1. I just saw these yesterday! I also found the California Face Palette (Eyeshadow Autobalm palette) for that price, the Pür Glitz and Glam Artist Palettes for Eyes and Cheeks for $19, both La Bamba palettes (1 and 2), Lorac Hot & Spicy collection ($12.80 plus the extra discount), and the Bliss Shade my Day palette (didn't catch the price but it was on clearance). I got the Manizer sisters and the two La Bamba palettes :)

  2. I want that Hawaii palette!

  3. What location did you all find these at? What state?

    1. Phillipsburg, NJ had the most (I work there). On the way home I ran into my closest Kohls (Easton PA) and they had very little.

  4. Darn...just went to two Kohl's stores and cannot find any of the items...:(

  5. Argh! I ran out and drove 30 min to the nearest kohls... nothing! waahhhh!!!

  6. Holy s*** the manizer sisters palette for $6.72??!! That's incredible! I want to cry, I want that deal so bad! I haven't seen it at my local Kohl's though and I'm on a no buy :,( thank you as always for posting these awesome tips though!

  7. Not every kohl's is offering the additional 40% off, some are only doing 20%. And the additional percentage off ends on the 12th.

  8. My local store has very little makeup :(

  9. I work at Kohl's, and wanted to add that all Bliss skin care sets from the holidays are $23, regularly $58. I bought one yesterday!!

  10. Omggggg!!! Why can't there be kohls in Canada!! I'm dying of envy right now!! Wahhh :'(

  11. Going out today to find all can't wait

  12. I just left the Oak Creek, WI Kohl's and they had several of theBalm Hawaii and La Bamba palettes left. Ringing up at $3.60 each! Go!

  13. I bought the 28 pan Bliss palette when it was on sale near Christmas (I think I paid $20) and it is totally unusable. It literally stinks. It smells so bad. The packaging is really cheap cardboard and the colors are easily dupable. I had such high hopes for this palette because I had tried out some of the Bliss makeup at Ipsy's Genbeauty NYC last fall but sadly this one was not of the same quality as their regular line (in the silver packaging).

  14. at our store we also have the Bliss Triple Oxygen masks and face cream on clearance as well. and to add to the Pur Minerals sale the Double Ego eye liners are included in the 50% off sale

  15. Also the balm also has a set with Schwing liner and cheater mascara,in addition to the meet matte sets

  16. I tried my Kohl's yesterday, and I had no luck with theBalm. I did, however, snag 3 Orly polishes for only $1.35 each!

  17. I went to Kohl's yesterday. I did find one La Bamba palette, but it had been molested, so I didn't buy it. Grrrr! People who try non-tester makeup are THE WORST! I almost never buy unsealed makeup anymore, because it seems like more often than not, if it's not totally sealed, someone has tried it in the store. On the upside, I did manage to find a pair of Nike's at Kohl's on clearance that rang up for $8! I know that's not a beauty item, but I just had to share. The Kohl's clearance deals right now are nuts. It is worth going through the entire store to find all of the clearance areas because of the extra 40% off.
