(More Items Added!) Rare MAC Sale: All Limited Edition Holiday Sets & Select Palettes 25% off + Free Shipping + FOUR Free Samples

Affiliate Links
UPDATE: More palettes added to sale!

So I posted a few days ago in my Black Friday/Cyber Monday Sale Round-Up (which I just updated, by the way--the BH Cosmetics sale is live and there's a new Milani sale and bareMinerals sale, so be sure to check my updates) that MAC was going to be doing a RARE 25% off sale on their holiday gift sets in-store, but guess what? It's online now, too!

Many thanks to reader Novocainedreams for letting us know that these gift sets are all 25% off on the Nordstrom website HERE. Click HERE to access the palettes.

And because they're at Nordstrom, that means you get free everyday shipping, no miminum required, and your choice of three free samples from this page AND there's an additional freebie right now! With ANY beauty order (no minimum required), you can get a FREE deluxe sample Amorepacfic Color Control Cushion Compact Broad Spectrum SPF 50 (0.17 oz.). To choose your color, enter one promo code—104, 106, 204 or 208—at checkout. You can view the listing for that sample HERE (scroll down a little bit and  you'll see it). Edit: reader Meg on Facebook just told me that she recieved the cushion compact with an order recently and that it's "huge"; she said she'd never guess it was a GWP based on the size. So definitely grab that one if you're ordering today (thanks for that tip, Meg!).

While you are on the Nordstrom site, be sure to check their New Arrivals HERE for new holiday value sets (multiple brands) and their Gift with Purchase page HERE for new deals.

I put everything into a widget so you can see everything at a glance, including the sale prices. You can click any of the images below to go directly to the item listing on the Nordstrom website:

I want to let you know that these sets are also on sale for 25% off on the MAC site (same exact prices as Nordstrom), also with free shipping (and the x9 palettes and x15 palettes are also 25% off). But you of course won't get your choice of the three free samples and bonus cushion compact sample I listed above, if that makes a difference to you.

A few other things: some of the Nordstrom listings have these marked as 20% off, but that is a typo. I checked every price against the MAC site and they are all 25% off, not 20% off.

This sale does NOT include the Viva Glam Holiday Sets because, of course, the proceeds for those sets go straight to a very, very good cause. So if you want either of those sets, plesae purchase them directly from MAC, to ensure that every penny goes to charity.

I do not know when this sale ends this sale runs now through 11/30, and it will also be going on in-store (I believe this will be at counters and free-standing stores, but you might want to check that for yourself).

Thanks again, Novocainedreams, for the great tip!


  1. Picked up two different 15 pan palettes & a pigment set.
    Thanks G!

  2. Oooo thanks for the tip! I just picked up the Nordstrom Favorite x 15 set, I'm going to see if I can get a price adjustment or just re-buy and return the other one.

  3. G, help! Two tarte items are "out of stock" on sephora online. Does this mean they've not gone live yet or they are gone? 😢

  4. You can also get the Amore Pacific in shade 102. I ordered that Smashbox primer and water last week for 10.00 and got the deluxe sample. It is so big. I just ordred the MAC warm nudes palette. I've been looking at that since it first came out. Thanks.

  5. Oh and ebates has 6% cash back.

  6. Nordstrom is pricematching the 9 and 15 palettes. I wish I read that before I ordered what I did.

  7. I broke open that Amore pacific compact 2 days ago. It looks HUGE, but there is not much product. Only .17 oz. For comparison, the sample size laneige that comes in the target box has .21( for all three colors combined). They are basically the same company too.
