HOT New Deals on Makeup and Nail Polish

Have I got some hot beauty deals to share with you today! The full list, after the jump....

Thanks to reader @mavenbeauty_ on Instagram for letting us know that Sephora has added lots of new items to their clearance sale page, including some products and sets from Tarte, Smashbox, OCC, Sephora Collection and more. Sale items on the Sephora site sell out quickly, so if you want something and it's still in stock, GRAB IT. If you wait, it will probably be gone the next time you check.

Now through 8/24, get an additional 50% off all clearance makeup items at Sally Beauty, in-store and online. No code required (thanks to several of you for the tip about this one!). If you're new to these Sally red tag sales, inventory can often vary dramatically from store to store so if you have multiple locations in your area, I'd hit them all up this weekend. You never know what you may find!

Thanks to longtime reader Heidi for the heads-up about this deal! Now through 8/24, select summer shades are BOGOFREE with code SBOGO on the Zoya site. For more details about this code, click here.

Speaking of nail polish, Big Lots received a new shipment of Sephora by OPI polishes! If you missed out on these the last time they had these in-store, you've got another chance.  If you're new to this deal, you can CLICK HERE to see my original post featuring some samples that Big Lots sent me, to get an idea of what you might find at your locations. I obviously can't guarantee that you'll be able to find these at your stores, but the ad above ran nationwide, so MOST stores should have an assortment now.

PS: Don't forget that readers are also spotting Sephora X polishes at Big Lots right now.

Thanks to reader Kica for this one! Now through 8/29, receive 35% off all in-stock palettes on the Coastal Scents site, no code required. That brings the Revealed and Revealed 2 Palettes (Urban Decay Naked Palette dupes) down to just $12.97 each (regularly $19.95).

I've mentioned this a few times recently but if you haven't been to the VIP Sale and Last Chance sections of the LORAC site lately, definitely stop by to see what's available. There are some killer deals to be had, and you get FREE EVERYDAY SHIPPING, no minimum order required, on the LORAC site..(Thanks to several of you for this tip!)

Did you know that e.l.f. added a permanent last-chance sale page to their site this week? Don't forget to visit that page whenever you're plotting an e.l.f. order--you never know what you may find there.

PS: This week e.l.f. posted this sneak peek of their new matte duo in the Studio Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder line ($3 each). This duo has not yet released, so keep checking the NEW page on their site--it should be there soon. Thanks to several of you for that tip!

And finally, all nail colors are 25% off with code NP2514  on the Cherry Culture website. Cherry Culture offers some affordable polishes that are sometimes harder to find in stores, so this could be a nice time for a haul. Remember that you get free shipping on orders over $40, no code required.

Thanks again to everyone who contributed the tips in this post. I really appreciate it! Oh, and as always, if I missed any new sales that have popped up recently, I would love it if you'd leave a comment below to fill us in!


  1. Your Big Lots is a magical place.

    1. Indeed. Mine is more of a dumping ground, and not in a good way.

  2. Thanks for the heads up! I will definitely be doing some shopping this weekend!

  3. oh great sales I can wait to check out sephora when I'm over from london next wednesday hopefully some sales will still be on

  4. I need to visit Big Lots soon. I hope mine has some of those Sephora polishes!

  5. Wow this is a lot of territory to cover! Going to check out Sephora for sure. Thanks for the intel...

  6. I am still mourning the fact that I never found Life Is a Beach! I seriously HUNTED this like crazy. I hate CNY Big Lots!!

  7. This was super helpful and welcome news. Thank you! Scored some fun stuff at Sephora and the Zoya deal is TOO tempting!

  8. I know, that Zoya sale is calling me too but then I just found a new ( to me anyway) display of Julie G. Mardi Gras polishes at Rite Aid the other day, got all but the green one but debating going back for it too now. They're such pretty glitters, not just top coats that remind me of many of the nicer Indie ones.
