New Beauty Sightings at the Discount Stores (PS: I Need Your Help!)

Real Techniques Bold Metals Set at Ross
(Ross price: $19.99; reg retail price: $49)

Thanks so much to reader @missym2003 on Instagram for kindly sharing the above Ross sighting with us! I couldn't believe my eyes when she tagged me on this photo, because this exact set is still $49 at Target and other retailers (PROOF). So yeah, $19.99 is a fantastic deal, and that price is even lower than all of the deals that various retailers offered during the holidays for this set. 

I also want to take a moment to thank so many of you for the comments, emails, and social media messages about other hot beauty deals that you're currently finding at Nordstrom Rack, Ross, TJMaxx, and Marshalls right now (thank you again for taking the time to share those tips with me!). I've received so many messages over the past few weeks that I'm afraid I'm having a really hard time trying to consolidate all of your sightings and tips into one post.

SO THIS IS WHERE I NEED YOUR HELP.

I know that there are some crazy-good deals on products by brands like Urban Decay, Too Faced, Smashbox, Stila, NARS, and more out there at the discounts stores right now. If you have emailed/commented/tagged me about any of these deals that you're currently finding, could you do me a huge favor and comment below? I would love if you could fill us in on WHAT you're finding, and the PRICES. I've heard from several of you who have found things like Urban Decay Primer Potion and Too Faced Shadow Insurance for like $9 (full-size tubes), and I also posted recently on Instagram about this Smashbox Primer sighting at TJMaxx (thanks to reader @she.so.different for that tip!). If you could tell us what else you're finding right now, I would be eternally grateful!

Thanks again, @missym2003, for the hot tip and pic, and thanks in advance to all of you who share your other tips with us in the comments below!

    2. Over the past 24 hours, I have heard from about 10 or so readers across the country who have spotted this particular set at Ross, so don't give up hope! Stop by and hopefully you'll find it too! :D

    3. No. I have the worst Ross stores in my location. Same stuff ALL of the time. I swear they have palettes in the stockroom marked CRAP.

      Delete
    4. Same here-the Ross I'm usually around is awful. I've found that Marshall's and T.J. Maxx are so much better for these finds!

  2. I bought a Stila eyeshadow in the shade Melody for 4.99. I also bought an Urban Decay featherlight brow pencil for 5.99. Both at tjmaxx.

  5. Recently at Nordstrom’s Rack I've seen (most of these on a visit yesterday):
    NARS Narsissist Dual Intensity palettes for $49.97 (seemed weirdly high considering it was on sale for less online) - as well as NARS Narsissist smokey eye kit for ~$30
    Too Faced Primer in Candlelight, Champagne, original for $8.97
    Too Faced La Creme Lipstick in various shades for $8.97
    Too Faced Black Book of Bronzers for $25-$30 (two different prices, so it probably varies a lot by location)
    Too Faced Sugar Pop Palette for $14.97
    Too Faced Soul Mates (unsure of the price)
    Too Faced No Makeup Makeup kit (unsure of the price)
    Too Faced Candlelight Pressed Powder (unsure of the price)
    Urban Decay Primer Potion (recently discontinued squeeze tube) for $8.97-$9.97/Travel size for $5.97-$6.97
    Urban Decay Smoked for $19.97
    Urban Decay Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Color for $9.97
    Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet eye pencil for $5.97
    Urban Decay BB Body Beauty Balm (unsure of price)
    Urban Decay liquid eyeliner (on clearance, marked down at $7 or less)

    A lot of Smashbox, Stila, and Lorac - many of them old limited edition or holiday sets, but some I noticed:
    Smashbox lip gloss for $9.97
    Stila holiday sets (that I believe are from 2014...) for $15

    2. Simone I saw the same things at my Nordstrom's Rack. I'm not sure where you are from but they have them in Oak Brook, IL, as well as a bunch of Michael Kors nail polishes for 6.97 each. I picked up 4. I believe and the Too FAced No Makeup kit I believe was 14.97 in Oak Brook but don't quote me on that. I picked it up and put it down really quickly after seeing one put their hands in it.

    3. I've seen the same things at the Concord (Sunvalley Mall) and San Francisco (Powel Street) Nordstrom Rack stores.

  6. Ok are you ready for this... LA Nordstrom Rack. I can't believe it but I snagged all the Too Faced Candlelight powders at one penny. They were priced wrong because they just put them out. I brought 8 powders and decided I will just registered them. Amazing deal!!! $14 powders for one penny each. I also grabbed Too Faced la Creme lipsticks 5 for $8 each! Steal! Given they are originally $22 a piece. I also picked up Lorac palettes... My favorite being the stylist on sale with red sticker for extra discount at $6 bucks. There are UD primer potions and Too faced shadow insurance for $9 bucks. But I'm happy with my deals!

    2. So jealous of your bargains!!! How in the heck did you get them for a penny? Teach me your ways great master!!

    3. Katana6--That's amazing! I saw the same powders at the Pasadena store but decided to pass on them. They were priced at $14.97 but I totally would've picked some up if they were a penny!

      Delete
  7. I saw most of these at my Nordstrom Rack yesterday! The No Makeup Makeup for $16.97 and the Soul Mates (only available shade was Ross & Rachel) for $11.97. There was also TONS of Laura Geller stuff, both sets and single products. I unfortunately didn't check prices on these because I was in a rush and am not a huge LG fan.

    This is between 3 stores, and not all stores have the same stuff, but the three I went to are within 25 - 40 miles of each other (thanks, commute) so chances are if one store doesn't have it another will!

  16. Hi G! I got the smashbox photofinish primer trio ($19) at HSN for $9 and free shipping. The trio consists of:
    .5 fl. oz. Photo Finish Foundation Primer Mini
    .17 fl. oz. Under Eye Primer DS
    .14 fl. oz. Layer Lash Primer DS
    Use code 156481 for $10 off. The code is good towards any purchase of $10 or more at HSN. I just thought this was a great deal. The code is valid until 4/20.
    Thank you, G for everything!

    Replies
    1. Thank YOU!! May I ask if that code appeared for you when you were on the site, or if you got in via email? The reason I ask is that when I've posted about other $10 off HSN codes in the past, that only ended up working for select customers (I have no idea how HSN determines that). Thanks!!

      Delete
    2. I got the code in a box from hsn. So I'm assuming that as long as you have made a purchase there before you can use the code (a friend of mine got the exact same code).

  20. I just picked up this set for $39.99 at Marshall's in the Sarasota/Bradenton area here in Florida. They usually have a few Ole products, and they almost always have a giant stash of Shiseido stuff https://goo.gl/photos/QqSTQhEuV7GgyQRA7

  24. I went to two Marshalls last Thursday and Friday in the San Gabriel Valley and saw a bunch of Stila box sets for around $20 (sorry, I can't remember the exact price). I also saw some Bare Minerals box sets for $29.99. They all looked brand new. I wonder if Stila and Bare Minerals are starting to send these kinds of sets directly to these discount stores!

    The 20% off F&F event at Big Lots ended today but here are some products and prices in case some people are still interested. I went to 3 stores in the San Gabriel Valley.

    CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lipsticks $2.50
    CoverGirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Balms $3.00
    Maybelline Lip Elixirs $3.00
    Maybelline Dream Wonder Foundations $4.50
    Revlon Brilliant Strength & Perfumerie nail polishes $1.50
    Revlon Top Speed nail polish duos $2.00

    G, due to your recommendation, I picked up a few packs of the Epielle makeup remover wipes. I got the aloe and green tea ones. I really like them! I also saw they have an argan oil and collagen versions of the wipes. I stocked up since I am planning on doing a swatch fest for my blog :)

  25. Found several of the stila magnificent metals lig glosses for $5.99 at my local (athens, Ga) Marshalls. They're normally $10. I'd never tried them before and the delicious cake smell sold me. I picked up kitten and I'm pretty happy with my purchase.

  26. I've worked for Ross in the stock team for the last two years a bit north of Seattle and in my area I've never seen real technique brushes. The thing tho is EACH store is different. Higher volume stores get higher end items. Certain stores are heavily picked through so find out when the stock team typically puts out the ladies accessories. Most stores don't mind telling you. Even though I've never seen real techniques, my store DOES get SEPHORA brand items. A couple weeks ago I bought this Sephora boar hair brush and eyebrow kit. In the past I've also gotten Sephora brand nail file, nail polish, and even brushes.

  27. There are Benzac face washes, acne treatments, and moisturizers at dollar tree in LA. I saw the same products at Ulta going for $5-$10 within the same week.

  28. I don't know if Grocery Outlet counts (is this a store that's common around the US or just the West Coast??), but I today I found the Gel Setter sets with Candy Apple Mint & the top coat for $4.99! I bought one mostly for the gel setter polish because it's incredible, but how painful is it to know you bought the same set full price ($15+) a few months before?! D':

    1. I miss Grocery Outlet! I'm originally from the Bay Area. I don't see any stores in LA. I would find Essie nail polishes and Revlon eyeshadow quads there.

  30. I went to browse the Pasadena Nordstrom Rack today at around 2pm (4/5). Just got back from there. There were quite a few Stila Sending My Love Gift Sets for $19.97.

    BEST OF ALL!: About 20 Urban Decay Smoked Palettes were back on display and SEALED. I heard from someone on Reddit that it was a complete mess in that section last week. I already have a backup at home but I just had to pick up another one since it's $19.97. For those of you living in the area, this is a great chance to get one if you haven't already!

  31. I tagged you in my new IG post. I found the RT metal brushes at my local Neighborhood Walmart on clearance! The were in random orange clearance bins by the per stuff. The silver eye brushes were marked $7 and the rose gold blush brush was marked $10.
