New beauty sales, coupons and contests!

Thanks to some lovely readers, I've got some great info to share with you today:

Reader Karyn writes: Butter London is having their 30% off sale with no minimum purchase — with code FFSUMMER12, until June 27th.

Karyn also writes: Cherry Culture is having a 20% off the entire store sale with the code GRS12 until June 26th!

Reader galliesallie writes: If you buy something at CVS today or perhaps for the next 3 days they issue a 30% off in store coupon good through Sun. only and excludes sale items.  The person in front of me got it at the register, and I got mine via email a few hours later.

(What a great coupon to use during the CVS Beauty Clearance Sale, and to combine with other red scanner box coupons you may get!) 

Reader Sasha writes: There's a contest on Avon's website right now where they're giving away all 45 shades of Nailwear polish to one winner every day for 45 days. The last day to enter is July 15.

For those on Facebook:

Want a coupon good for a FREE Nivea lip care product? Like the Nivea Facebook page, upload a photo of you and a loved one in a "PDA moment" (holding hands, hugging, kissing) and Nivea will send you a coupon for one free lip care product. As of the time of this post, there are still 147,093 coupons available, so you've got plenty of time to dig through your JPEGs.

And finally, for those of you on Twitter:

EcoTools is running a fun Twitter contest where if you tweet a summer skin beauty tip with the hashtag #ETSummerSkin you'll be automatically entered to win a $250 Gift Certificate to Ulta. You can tweet as many tips as you'd like, with each new tweet counting as another chance to win.

Thanks so much, Karyn, galliesallie and Sasha, for the great scoop on these sales, coupons and contests!


  1. Please note that the CVS 30% coupon, like almost all their %-off coupons, do not include anything that's on sale. They're great to use on stuff that never goes on sale, like Essie polishes and Seche Vite.

    1. Thanks, I didn't even think about using it on Essie! I found a $2 off Essie coupon at CVS a couple of weeks ago (only good at CVS) so I'll have to use that too!

  2. I just tried the Butter London 30% code ... does not work in Canada! Boo!

  3. Just in case no one has checked out the Cherry Culture website, I took a peek and noticed there was quite a bit of NYX stuff on sale. I didn't dig too deep and some things weren't on sale, but I did notice some palettes and such on sale. Butt naked palette, here I come!

  4. There is also a special from Zoya until June 24th for 3 Zoyas for $12 plus $4 ground shipping. Here is the Zoya official link with the trios that are available:

  5. I went to CVS today and my store is only doing a 20% sale. I asked the employee and she didn't hear anything about a 30% coupon.

  6. I went to CVS today and my store is only having a 20% coupon instead of a 30%. I asked an employee and she didn't hear anything about a 30% coupon. Bummed....

  7. Thank you for for the update, I've been having fun going to stores and looking for deals, going to Walgreen's today to check out their new sales :) Have a great day!

  8. Yay for sales!
    Do you have any butter london recommendations?

  9. I got an email from Butter London about the sale and went to buy some polishes after scoping them out at Ulta, but they charge so much for shipping it ended up being more effective to buy them from since Dermstore charges no tax or shipping and gives 7.5% cash back from Ebates. After all the effort I wanted to finally try their polishes, especially since I love the bottles, so I ordered The Black Knight. I'm looking forward to receiving it!
