theBalm Nude 'tude Eyeshadow Palette $20 Shipped (and More!)

A huge thank-you to those of you who took the time to alert me to the following deals via comments here on the blog, on social media, and email!

  • First up, Ipsy once again is offering theBalm Nude 'tude Palette HERE for $20 shipped (regularly $36). As of the time of this post, there are six days left on this deal but these always sell out before the official end-date, so don't wait if you're interested!

  • I also want to mention that both Mario Badescu and BH Cosmetics will be on HauteLook HERE starting at 8AM Pacific Tuesday (1/12). 

  • Macy's has a new Macy's-Exclusive Tarte My Favorite Things set HERE for $29 + free shipping that contains what I believe is a new, limited edition shade of LipSurgence called Nurturing (nude pink). I'm sure one of you will correct me if this is NOT a new shade, but I couldn't find any mention of it online. The LipSurgence is full-sized, so that's a nice deal since you also get a deluxe Cheek Stain in the new shade Muse and a deluxe Maracuja Oil for $29 + free shipping. (UPDATE: Thanks to reader Tiffany for the tip that this set has actually made the rounds before, at a lower price. So you may want to hold off for better deal down the road!)

  • Samples, samples, samples! Now through 1/13 on the Origins site HERE, get your choice of FIVE deluxe samples + a cosmetics bag free with any $30+ purchase. Over at Aveda HERE, receive five free samples and free shipping on any order, no code required (ends 1/13).

Thanks again, everyone, for the awesome tips!


  1. This is a great deal on the Nude Tude and I ordered it(I'm so weak!). Thanks G

    1. You're so welcome! That IS a great deal--I can completely understand why you broke down and ordered! ;)

  2. Thank you so much for these tips! The nearest Aveda store is 2 states away from me and their tea is the best tea. Ever. Of life. On the planet. (And each bag can be steeped twice, so it's not as expensive as it seems.) So I got that along with the 5 free samples and free shipping for $20, plus I was able to take the BizRate survey after I placed my order and got 4 free magazine subscriptions. Sweet! Considering that Tarte set at Macy's too, but I think I'll sleep on that one. I've done enough damage already this month ;)

    1. You're so welcome! I'm so glad you were able to get your favorite tea with free shipping Yay!! :D

  3. Just an FYI, that Tarte set has been around awhile and has been making its rounds to various retailers. I purchased it from Tarte's website clearance in August 2015 for $12. The lipsurgence is also a repeat from a QVC TSV from a couple years ago. It's a great little set, but I would keep my eyes out for better deals!

    1. Oh man, thank you SO much for this info! I cannot keep up with Tarte's LE sets, so this is incredibly helpful. I tried to search for the shades in these sets to avoid this exact thing (posting about a set that has already made the rounds but is "new" at Macy's) but I couldn't find anything online! The Macy's listing says the Cheek Stain shade is new, so it's frustratin if it isn't. Ugh. Will update my post right now!

    2. No problem! I know Tarte is notorious for repromoting products and calling them "new." Thanks for all your hard work seeking out deals for us!:-)

  4. Not all items work for the Aveda deal. ALL travel items as well as the lip balm are excluded. :(
