Kohl's Beauty Event 11/12 - 11/18 (Plus: New Holiday 2015 Value Sets from Cargo, theBalm, and Pur Minerals)

It's back! Kohl's is having another It's a Beautiful Day beauty event this Thursday, 11/12, through next Wednesday, 11/18. During this event, you can visit your nearest participating store (CLICK HERE for the list of participating stores) and receive double points on all beauty purchases, free samples and makeovers. 

Now for some new holiday value sets that I want to bring to your attention!

PLEASE NOTE: If you cannot find these sets at your local Kohl's, you can select "ship to store" when ordering online and receive them without any shipping fees (you just have to pick them your local store). Alternatively, you can visit a Kohl's Kiosk (in-store) and order any of these sets and receive free shipping directly to your home. In other words, you can totally avoid shipping fees! Also, you can use Kohl's Cash on prestige cosmetics, but you cannot use percentage off coupons.

Cargo Holiday 2015 Limited Edition Lip Gel Kit, $25 (click here for item listing). These are full-size lip colors, and you get four. I believe that these Lip Gels are a new product for Cargo, introduced in this set.

Cargo Holiday 2015 Magic Brush Duo, $42 (click here for item listing). This duo contains special holiday versions of the famous Cargo Magic Brush and also the Magic Eye Makeup Brush. As you can see, the handles are red and the ferrules are gold in this set (the normal brushes have a silver ferrule and silver handle). The Magic Brush by itself retails for $35, so it's like you're getting the Magic Eye Makeup Brush for $7 if you get this set (regularly $22).

There are also some eyeshadow pencil and eyeliner travel sets on the Kohl's site, as well as an HD Prime & Finish Makeup Set. CLICK HERE to view all.
This set is not new, but there is a great Pur Minerals gift-with-purchase offer right now at Kohl's that I want to bring to your attention. Right now, when you buy ANY Pur Minerals product at Kohl's, you'll receive your choice of a Liquid Chisel Makeup Brush or Big Look Mini Mascara FREE. And this set above, the Start Now Makeup Kit (click her for item listing), is currently on sale for $24.99 (regularly $39). And you get to pick your shade for the pressed mineral makeup! 

CLICK HERE to view all Pur Minerals items. Be sure to select "GIFT WITH PURCHASE" in the item listing to select your freebie.
theBalm Mr. Write (Now) 3-Piece Eyeliner Pencil & Gift Bag Set, $34 (click here for item listing). This set contains three full-size Mr. Write (Now) eyeliners in Brian B. Beige, Dean B. Onyx and Bill B. Mocha, plus a cute makeup bag. These eyeliners retail for $17 when purchased separately, and I have heard nothing but raves about these in terms of staying power. If you have been wanting to try these, this is a great way to do it since you're saving $17 here. That's like buying two and getting one free (plus the free makeup bag). Check out my pal Jen's review of these HERE, and also my pal Kelly's review with swatches of all shades HERE

  1. Aww thanks for the mention G! :)

  2. I just wanted to let you guys know the actual beauty event is this Saturday, but the time frame you mentioned is when you can use the coupon that is only going out to the top kohls beauty customers so if you buy beauty from Kohls frequently you should be receiving a mailer or email with the coupon. If you don't receive the coupon we will be having great Gift with Purchases with most of our makeup/skin care and fragrance lines and we will be having a sale on all of our Pur minerals foundations, I believe it's 25% off.

    1. Oh, thank you so much for the great info! So if I have this straight, the time-frame listed on the Kohl's site only applies to that special coupon and NOT to the double points, free samples and makeovers? Those three things are ONLY on Saturday? Also, will the Pur Minerals foundations only be 25% off on Saturday as well? And will that sale be online too or just in-store?

      And while I have your ear, is that GWP for Pur Minerals that I mentioned in my post in-store too, or just online? I don't have a Kohl's with an extended beauty department in my area, so I never know if those GWPs are always in-store and online. Thanks so very much!!

    2. We are always equipped to do makeovers whenever. Free samples baggies will be passed out on Saturday. I'm not too sure about the double points from our website it looks like within those dates. We have new GWP that will be released on Saturday for makeup, skin care and fragrances. The PUR minerals foundations are currently on sale in store and online for 20% off.

  3. Those Cargo lipsticks look really nice. I'll be in Wisconsin( Home of Kohl's) on Thursday so I might have to stop by. Do you remember Monica Lewinsky's interview with Barbara Walters? I swear she wore a Cargo lipstick called " Glaze". I think I ran out the next day and bought it because I loved it so much. It was not a well known brand back then. Not that its very popular now, but I bought 2 quads and a blush when Macy's had their crazy black friday in July sale and I LOVE THEM.

  4. Oh the power of Google, should have looked before I typed that last comment. I got the color correct, the brand was wrong. Its Club Monaco in Glaze. Where do I find that brand?

    1. LOL! I ran out and bought Club Monaco Glaze after that interview as well! Well, it took me a while to find it because, as I'm sure you remember, it was sold out at Sephora for weeks, and that was back when there was only one Sephora in my town and geeze, did Sephora even have a website at that time? I honestly can't remember, but I remember calling and calling my Sephora every week asking if they had it in stock. It was worth the hunt though, because that lipstick was truly gorgeous.

      Sadly, Club Monaco stopped making cosmetics a few years ago, so that shade is gone forever. :(

    2. I ran right out and bought Glaze also!!!! I have to say it didn't look nearly as good on me as on Monica! I think I still have it!

  5. Just wanted to let you know that those CARGO lipsticks are not new. CARGO has had LE gel lipsticks before, but they were discontinued about a month or two ago. I'm not sure if they were Kohl's exclusive (the Kohl's I work at had them), but they were out from February - September this year for sure. Like I said before, these were labeled Limited Edition. The colors in the set look the same as the individual colors we carried before, but I can't quite recall their names.

    1. The lip gels they had before coincided with the New York collection or the Essentials palette, they had 4 different ones Chelsea, Soho, Tribeca and I think the last one was Brooklyn. But they are limited edition because we called those back a few months ago
