Did I miss any hot makeup deals this week? If so, please leave a comment below and fill us in (and thanks in advance).


  1. Oh boy, I'm feeling weak after reading the Ulta update. The Japonesque powder keeps me oil free all day. It's amazing!!

  2. I found all Physicians formula on clearance at my local Wal Mart in upstate ny yesterday! the argon oils were only six bucks! Blushes and bronzers were five!

  3. I read your post about the Tone body wash and I completely agree with you on that back voice of needing that product!! I found myself doing that today and I ended up buying all four of different scents from Tone! I can't wait to start using them! Thank you G for always being here <3 Okay I am going to finish watching the Debate. It's very entertaining while doing math homework

  4. I want to say how much I appreciate the updates always but I especially benefited from the extra freebies during the Ulta Beauty Steals event.
    Can you please, please tell me how the items that turn from (usually) $10 to free, once another item is added to my cart, are found?? I have been trying to duplicate the location and they do not appear in my "Gifts with Purchase" even though it looks like they should when following the header links. I have been kind of driving myself crazy trying to figure this out. Thank you for any help here!

    1. Lots of time it doesn't work with gift with purchase. I either type the name exactly as it is in ulta search box. Or I click the link in the blog and out should add to the cart for $10 once you add things it's free. If it doesn't add as free it's either the wrong thing or no longer apart of the promotion
