A message for readers who subscribe to my daily newsletter

First of all, THANK YOU for clicking the "subscribe" button (see the black box located on the right-hand sidebar below) and opting to receive an email from me in your in-box every day!

It's been a while since I went over this, so if you're a newer reader/subscriber, a few helpful tips:

  • The Nouveau Cheap daily newsletter is sent out once per day, at the end of each day (usually at around 11PM Pacific). This newsletter contains links to every single blog post that was published on my blog for that day. It was designed to catch ALL posts within a given day, therefore it's sent out late at night.

  • PLEASE, please, please do not rely on my daily newsletter for up-to-the-moment sale/deal info. That's not what a daily newsletter is designed for, and there's a very good chance that you'll miss out on deals if you rely solely on my daily newsletter for your Nouveau-Cheap-related info. The newsletter is a catch-all for those who want to know, at a glance, about everything posted here on a daily basis.

  • If you would like my hot deal alerts IN REAL TIME, I very much suggest that you follow me via social media. I post a link to each and every blog post I write, the moment the post goes live, on the following social media channels:
Nouveau Cheap Facebook 
Nouveau Cheap Twitter 
Nouveau Cheap Google+
I am also on Bloglovin' but I do not control when that service posts my blog posts (but they do tend to post them very quickly--just a few minutes after they go live).

PLEASE NOTE: You can also follow me on Instagram and/or Pinterest, but please be aware I do NOT post a link to every single blog post I write on those sites. If you rely solely on either of those sites for you info, you are going to miss a lot.

HOWEVER: when it comes to Instagram and Twitter I do post about deals/tips/sightings that I NEVER post about here on the blog due to time constraints. So if you can't get enough of all things budget-beauty, definitely follow me on Instagram and Twitter for extra content that you won't see here on the blog.

Thanks for reading, and I hope that helps!


  1. I visit your site every time you post something

    1. Thank you SO much for that, Icequeen!! :)

  2. FWIW, I think you should send the newsletter out early enough that people don't have to follow you around the Internet. We don't all have time to do that. I don't know any other blog newsletter that works this way, and while I've gotten quite used to it, I do find it frustrating. Why would you not allow newsletter readers - people who obviously read your blog every day -- to benefit from that?

    1. First of all, I'm not asking ANYONE to "follow me all around the internet". I'm simply offering other ways to receive my updates in real time.

      Second, all newsletters that I subscribe to are sent out either daily (like mine), weekly, or monthly. I'm not sure if you're suggesting that I send out an email every time I do a new blog post, but that would really flood people's in-boxes on days that I do 6, 7, 8 + posts per day. It's just not practical.

      It really makes me sad that you would think that me sending out my email at the very end of each day is somehow punishing those who faithfully read my blog. That simply could not be farther from the truth.

      Please consider that if I sent the email out earlier in the day, as you suggested, what would happen if a hot deal came through AFTER the email went out at say, 10AM. You wouldn't get notification until the NEXT day at 10AM. How it works now, you would at leastget that email at around midnight that same night. Do you see what I mean?

      Now if you're asking that I post about hot deals early in the day and then send the email out right after I post about them, I'm afraid that's impossible. I get information literally 24 hours a day, and I always do my VERY BEST to post about deals the moment I'm recieve a tip. But I do have a life outside of the blog, and sometimes I just can't get to my computer and post as quickly as I would like. When I do post, I immediately share my links on social media so readers can get the info as quickly as possible. I'm afraid that this is the very best I can do,. Please believe me when I say that I've considered all possibilities when it comes to my newsletter, and sending at the end of each night is the most optimal. Again, it is not some sort of punishment and I hope this is clearer to you now. Thanks!!

    2. G, do not waste your precious time responding to this comment. Whypeople find it necessary to hate, I will never know. You are literally one of the most active beauty bloggers around right now, and for that I am thankful. Continue to do you.

  3. I love your blog..but like others I don't carry my cell on me to check out all social media sites. hate twitter, etc HOWEVER, this is not a rude nor a hate comment. ;)) I appreciate you taking the time to bring us the latest and sometimes not the lastest in bueaty industry. Due to your reasons for sending this out late (EST here) and I get the day after, but now I know. But till this day, I have always loved your blog and relied on it for alerting me of some good sales, but I never have put all my eggs in one basket. Once again thank you so much for bringing to me some of the best BLOGGIN makeup alerts ever. I Thank you for taking time to share.

  4. I don't know who originally said this but "you can't please all the people all the time, HOWEVER, you can please most the people most the time". I know you do your best and there are thousands of us that appreciate every little thing you do. You are very sweet to share all these deals with us and your attitude never ceases to amaze me. I have a tendency to tell people to stick it if they don't like (or are the least bit unhappy) with what I'm saying or doing but then thats me. Keep up the good work honey, I don't say it often enough, but THANK YOU!

  5. I enjoy your newsletter every morning. I think the way you handle your posts is just right: if we want up-to-the-minute info, join FB, Twitter or G+. If we just want the end-of-day summary, newsletter it is! Thanks for all of the great product info and reviews. Love it!

  6. I love your blog so much! It's my favorite make up blog. You are the most thorough reviewer out there! I gladly "follow you around the internet" ha ha ;) keep up the awesome job

  7. I get your newsletter, but I don't know why I bother because I check in with your blog several times a day. :) I like hearing about deals but I also just love reading your blog. I even read entries about things I don't use, like textured nail polish! You have such a fun style and your posts are so informative. We all really appreciate all the work you put in!

  8. I am quite grateful to you for taking the time and making the effort to bring the "wide world" of makeup tips, specials, sales, reviews, etc to us so all we have to do is follow your lead, make a decision and go purchase. I've scored some great cosmetic deals by following your blog and instagram account. Thank you G for doing all the legwork, I appreciate it and my bank account thanks you, haha.

  9. I read the newsletter faithfully everyday and I thank you for all of your hard work in taking the time to try and inform as many people as possible using different social network formats. I also utilize the social networks from time to time, but I guess I am old school and don't really understand twitter :-/ I know it's a lot of work and again I APPRECIATE YOU! Don't worry about the haters, I'm sure they don't mean to hate, it's just that they love your blog so much they can't wait for the next post ;-)
