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. My Ulta deal is get 100 Bonus Points (or $3) with a $30 purchase. I saw someone else got 250 Bonus Points (or $8) with a $60 purchase. This deal is actually do-able for me - especially after yesterday's gluttony. ;)

    1. Oh wow!! Thank you so much for letting me know. I'll update my post right away. And now I feel robbed. Lol! 100 bonus points is way more doable for me too, and then you'd only have to spend an extra $5 for free shipping. Lucky you!!

  2. Mine was 200 points of $45 or more

    1. Oh thank you! Will add that to my post! That one seems fantastic to me since you'll get the free shipping too. Lucky you!!

  3. I just bought 6 of the infallible shadows that I don't have for just over $14. YESSSS!!! Couldn't pass it up! Thanks G!

  4. So last night at 1030 Pacific, I logged onto the Ulta site to see if the 20% coupon still worked...and it did----but they just launched the UD Full Spectrum palette, and it applied! Saved 11$. Just had to share my excitement. Plus, it's already shipped today :) Anyway thanks for this awesome blog (however my checking account does not agree with that statement lol).

  5. I didn't receive any special emails with bonus points today :( i got the Smashbox 5x on purchase one last week....

  6. FYI, My TJ Maxx has Too faced Bullet proof liners for 8.99. They had all colors. I got Mink. I swatched it on my hand, it set in 20 seconds and I rubbed and rubbed and it doesnt budge. They are 19.80 on the Too Faced site.

  7. I didn't get the smashbox 5x email last week but I logged in my account and it was there so I used it yesterday with the 20% coupon, what has me worried is that I went back to my email from yesterday (20% coupon) and the one I got today to get 300 points with a $60.00 purchase and they are both listing someone else's name along with that person's membership account number... I went to my Ulta account and checked that all the info is mine and it is but somehow I'm getting emails -at least 2 that I have seen- to my email address but listing someone else's name and account number, the email also shows what my local store should be and the one listed is in a completely different state than where I'm in!!! I'm calling ulta tomorrow because it makes me think just like I got someone else's info, then it could mean someone else has at the very least my first name, member number and even how many points I have as well as what general city I shop in... ladies, please check your emails and make sure the info displayed is the correct one belonging to you

    1. They messed up my account royally in January. Someone in Florida was using my rewards number (I don't live in Florida). Didn't redeem any points, just earned me some, but kept switching my information to hers in-store (couldn't online, as I had the only access to that). I ended up having to create a new account with a different email and phone number and have them transfer my points over. Big hassle that took weeks to resolve.

    2. Funny you mentioned the person that was messing with your account is in Florida, the lady that my emails are being addressed to lives in Florida... I called Ulta and the girl took the account number and said it belongs to this lady, confirmed she lives in Florida and also told me she's a platinum member! I told her I wasn't calling to get info on her, rather to let them know is showing on my emails and my concern that the same thing could be happening with my info, all the girl could do was take note of this and let a supervisor or higher up know and they might take a few weeks to look into this... not happy about this at all, I was very clear on how concerned I am because it not only shows member # but first and last name as well as the city closer to where you live so anyone can pinpoint where you are with that information. Glad you were able to clear things up. I'm thinking I won't be signing up for their credit card after this...

  8. Already posted this to the fb page but thought I'd share this here too:

    Just noticed more Maybelline and Loreal products are on sale at Ulta in addition to the Infallible shadows! There are some lip products, liners, more shadow.... all for like less than $5 each! Check it out! Perfect holiday gifts!!

  9. I logged in to see what my offer was and I was SOOOO excited to see I have 5x points through 11/5. I'm at about 1400 points right now and was hoping I would get a 5x offer to hit 2000 points to buy some Christmas gifts. Woohoo!!

  10. 40 percent of Milani!! I have been waiting for this forever. Thanks!!

  11. Apparently they are overconfident in my spending ability and underestimating my math skills, because the offer that I received was 350 points for $90 or more. The people that got the 250 for $60 have the best deal, because they are getting the most points per dollar.

    The good thing is, this is the time to get drugstore brands and prestige brands that never have multipliers- if there was anything that you were gonna get anyway.

    Does anyone know if you can split up your order to apply this more than once?

    1. Actually, correction... those with the $200 bonus points when you spend $45 are getting the most bang for your buck.

      I was gonna call into Ulta and request the points, but I may just go ahead and sit this one out.

  12. The free shipping on $35 at ULTA is for sure going to last until 11/5/16. If you look at the weekly ad online, it states it on the last page.

  13. Oh! How I wish they had all rose blushes on sale on line also I'd like to finish collecting all of them! But must say the baked blushes I did get and am really liking them. So beautiful! Just perfect!

  14. Hi! Just wanted to let you know that Target has their Halloween section 50-70% off. That's great for candy, even better for makeup! I found 2 packs of Ardell Wispies for 1.78, which is awesome savings!!! :)
