Labor Day 2012 Beauty Sale Round-Up (please add to the list!)

First and foremost, I'd like to apologize to reader Melissa for failing to credit her for the comment on the You Tell Me page yesterday. Melissa took the time to write out ALL of the sales for Ulta's 21 Days of Beauty and I failed to see her comment before I wrote my post about it yesterday. So thanks very much, Melissa, for doing that for us. It is much appreciated! If you'd like a print version of the full Ulta 21 Days of Beauty sales, please check the comments on the You Tell Me page and look for Melissa's comment.

The following is a list of Labor Day Sales for 2012. If you know of anything else going on (in stores or online) please leave a comment on this post and share with us! Thanks so much!

They have had a huge Labor Day sale every year since their site has been up. Don't know exactly what the sale is but its usually been half off their studio collection based on the past Labor Day sales. If you don't want to wait, their still having their BOGO sale right now.

  1. Hmm... I never knew Claire's offered online shopping. Neat!

  2. well, next week sinful colors are on sale again for 99 cents, yay. but I'm not aware of any new collections to look out for.

    1. I spotted a new metalllics collection at my Walgreen's, on the same lines as the recent Essie collection. I think they were all new shades because the numbering was 11_ _.

    2. I spotted a new metallics collection at my Walgreens (Bay Area in CA), along the lines of Essie's Mirror Metallics. I believe they were all new shades because the numbering was 11 _ _. I'm on a polish no buy so I didn't look at them for too long (just long enough to pick up a bottle of each color, drool, and check the labels, LoL) I might have to cheat if they're still available during the sale though!

  3. I don't know any sales unfortunately :( but I'm seriously annoyed with ELF. Almost everyday for the last 6 weeks, I've been checking to see if they've restocked a lot of their newer items and nothing. I've never had such a hard time trying to give my money to a company! LOL! I've been dying to try the new small stippling brush, baked bronzers & blushes to name a few.

  4. Coastal scents make your own pallet 99¢ eyeshadow and 50% empty pallets

  5. Demeter Fragrance Library - free shipping on $50; good through 9/7/12 (no code needed)

    *FREE 1 oz PURE SOAP Cologne Spray with a $25 order.
    *50% off classic Demeter candles and soaps
    *Check their Facebook wall for the fragrance of the day; they post the scent along with the code to get it for 50% off (Friday's scent is the last scent posted; it's Dirt and the code is 10069480

  6. Bh cosmetics is having a huge sale, and they have a bunch of really pigmented palettes for only 11 dolars! Also, Sephora is having a big End of Summer Sale! Crown brush is having a 40% off sale on their palettes and 30% off sale on their brushes!

  7. Sneeqpeeq is now offering free shipping for the weekend! An even better deal on those Unii palettes!
