I Pity the Fool Who Doesn't Check Out this Beauty Deal Round-Up

If you're too young to get this reference, Mr. T (pictured above) is known for his signature catch-phrase: I pity the fool...

So yeah, I had to go there today.

But seriously, NO JOKES here today (I promise, although I still love the 2014 April's Fools joke I played on you here). Here are some HOT new deals to put on your radar in case you're looking to do a little shopping this weekend.

ANTHROPOLOGIE - now through 4/2, receive $20 off $100 with code SURPRISE on the Anthro website. This offer includes beauty here (Sunday Riley, Artis and more). That Brings Sunday Riley Good Genes down from $105 to $85. Shipping on orders $75 to $124.99 is $10.95, so that would bring your grand total for Good Genes to $95.95. If you are waiting for the Sephora VIB Sale (which should start very soon) to get 15% off Good Genes, that will bring the price down to $89.25 (plus free shipping). So the Sephora deal will be better IF you're a VIB. But if you're not a VIB, then this Anthro deal for $95.95 down from $105 at least gives you some savings ($9.05 to be exact).

BENEFIT (VIA HSN): you can get the new Benefit Blush Parade Palette for $38 (reg $58) plus free shipping right now (thanks to reader Sophia Mohamed for this tip!). Here's how: all customers can use Visa Checkout to receive $20 off $40 (this applies to any beauty purchases) and you do not have to use a Visa card to get this discount. Just follow the directions on this page (expires 4/10).

THE BODY SHOP - TBS redesigned their website (yay) and for a limited time they're offering free shipping on all orders and 30% off all items here. This sale has been extended and I don't know when it will end (if that link doesn't work by the time you read this, that means it's probably over).

CLARISONIC (VIA QVC) - time is running out on the hot deal I posted about here (ends 4/10).

CLINIQUE - while supplies last, spend $55 on the Clinique website and receive free shipping plus a FREE 5pc Jolly Pops Set ($45.50 value; includes 4 full-size Jolly Pops + case) with code JOLLY. You can see a better pic of this set HERE.

COLOURPOP - they extended their free shipping offer to today (4/1) and there are new Spring Bundles here.

E.L.F. - (reminder) right now you can use code 10OFFRMN on the e.l.f. website to receive $10 off $40. Free shipping on orders $25+. I tried this code with items on the Spring Sale page here and it worked (I added 3 Luxe Brush Collections to my cart and my total went from $42 to $32 after code. That's an awesome discount considering that the original retail price of that brush set is $35 for ONE set). I did not try the code with any new products so give it a shot and see what works. You cannot stack this code with any other code, so if you want the current GWP you'd have to skip the $10 off $40 to get the free gift.

HAUTELOOK - view all beauty sales here. Ending soon: LA Splash. New today: PMD.

KATE SPADE - now through 4/2 on the Kate Spade site, receive an additional 25% off sale items with code DEAREST (free standard shipping on all orders). This code works on the Eyeshadow Palette iPhone 7 Case here and iPhone 6 Case here. Those cases are already on sale for $20 (down from $40) so that brings them down to $15 plus free shipping. View all sale items here.

KIEHL'S (VIA LORD & TAYLOR) - the jumbo Creme de Corps (33.8 oz with pump) is on sale for $57 here (reg $75). IMPORTANT: if you're going to buy this, add to cart and then WAIT. Don't do a thing because a pop-up will appear allowing you to choose FIVE free beauty samples with your order. If you don't choose your freebies at that time, you may not get this offer to work afterward (the L&T site is finicky like that). ALSO: you will automatically get this FREE 2pc Kiehl's set with your order (free when you spend $45 on Kiehl's); this set will automatically appear in your cart. Also, you'll receive free shipping on this order (all beauty orders $49+ ship free). View all beauty sale items here.

LAURA GELLER - (end-date unknown) receive a FREE full-size Italian Marble Lipstick in Strawberry Toffee ($18 value) when you spend $35+ on the Laura Geller website. This freebie will be automatically added to your cart. Free shipping on orders $50+ and all orders receive a free sample of Spackle. Don't forget to check out the sale items on this page.

L'OCCITANE - today only (4/1) buy the travel size Divine Cream here for $15 with free shipping and you will also receive a credit for $15 off your next full-size Divine purchase.

MAC COSMETICS - they added the Caitlyn Jenner items to their Goodbyes sale page here. Enter code PRIMER to receive 3 additional free samples (on top of the ones you already get to pick). Free standard shipping on all orders. (Thanks to reader Tamiko R. for these tips!)

MACY'S - for a limited time (I couldn't find an end-date on this), there are some Dr. Brandt items on the beauty sale page here. Free shipping on all beauty orders at Macy's.

ORIGINS - now through 4/2, receive free shipping on all orders on the Origins website with code WEEKEND. Spend $40 and receive your choice of 3 deluxe samples at checkout.

PUR COSMETICS - Today only (4/1), receive 20% off all orders on the PUR website with code JUSTKIDDING. Free shipping on orders $35+. (Thanks to reader @pretty_matte for the tip!)

PERRICONE MD - now through 4/4, Friends & Family sale on the Perricone site. Receive 25% off sitewide with code FFSPRING. Free standard shipping on all orders. Every day of this event there will be a new freebie. For today (4/1), spend $75 and receive a FREE Face Finishing Moisturizer.

TARGET (IN-STORE ONLY) - today only, 4/1, on the Cartwheel app there are multiple offers on beauty (check them all out here). (Thanks to reader @pretty_matte for the tip!)

TARTE - now through 4/30 (thanks to reader anneemull for that tip!) you can enter code IPSYMAR for 20% off your order on the Tarte website and it includes several NEW products on this page (it does not work with the Magic Wands brushes but it appears to work with all other new products on that page). This code does NOT work with the Shape Tape concealer (I tried). Free shipping on orders $40+ and one free sample with all orders.

TOO FACED - while supplies last on the Too Faced website, get the Love Fool Set for $30 (free shipping on orders $50+ and 2 free samples with all orders). This limited edition set includes a full-size Funfetti Lip Gloss, a full-sized Funfetti Love Flush 16-hour Blush, a teddy bear hair Heartbuki Brush, and a deluxe-size Better Than Sex Mascara. A full-size Love Flush Blush retails for $26 by itself, so this is nice deal. As always, don't forget to check out the sale page here.

TOO FACED (VIA HSN) - (reminder) as of the time of publication, there are still three Too Faced products on sale at HSN HERE (Love Flush blush for $13 down from $26 and more) plus free shipping. IMPORTANT: All customers can use Visa Checkout to receive $20 off $40 (this applies to any beauty purchases, not just Too Faced) and you do not have to use a Visa card to get this discount. Just follow the directions on this page (expires 4/10).

TJMAXX - there are some prestige products on sale right now that you should know about. Free shipping on orders $89+ with code ship89 ($8.99 for orders under $89).

Here are some quick links (NOTE: I checked the retail prices for these products and some of them are actually represented as lower on the TJMaxx site; for example, NARS blushes retail for $30 and TJMaxx lists retail as $28, so I indicated the current retail prices below):


  1. Also MAC has added the Catylin Jenner items to their Goodbyes sale page. And you can add the code PRIMER and get three additional samples on top of the ones you already get to pick.

    1. Oooh, thank you so much for that tip, Tamiko!! Will add to the list ASAP! xo

  2. Just a note - please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the April Sephora VIB sale will be 15% off?

    1. Connie you are absolutely right! Thank you so much--I just updated my post! What's funny is that when I first wrote that, I had it at 15% off and calculated the savings at 15% off, but then I was like, "Wait, it's 20% off, right?" so I went back and changed it. This is why we should never doubt our first instincts! Lol.

      Anyway, thank you again for pointing that out--I checked my archives for the Spring 2016 VIB sale and yes, it's definitely 15% off for Rouge and VIB, and 10% off for BI (if they do it again the same way this year). :)

    2. When is the Sephora VIB sale?

  3. Aieeee!! I was saving my credit card for Ulta tomorrow (holy grail mascara plus Lorac palettes HELLO) but DANG there are some tempting deals here're killin' me, G.!

    1. Lol girl, I feel your pain! I'm super tempted too. I wish that Kate Spade phone case was available for android because I would be ALL OVER IT. ;)

  4. ELF is 14% back at Ebates today too, tons of companies st that level today. Too bad ELF won't load. :(

  5. I just saw something from Sephora saying "Reach VIB by 4/10 to get 15% off at our shopping event". So it looks like the sale will not be until after 4/10 which will give me extra time to save up.

  6. I was trying to hold back but took advantage of the $20 off from HSN! thank you for posting. got the new Benefit Cosmetics Cheek Parade Palette - Bronzers & Blushes!

  7. The Benefit "Blush Parade Palette" was in stock as of 10:45 PM East coast local time, that is approximately when I checked out. But the message flashed in my cart: "HOT...Best Seller". Good luck to those who are trying to get it!

  8. Visa checkout never works for me on HSN! And every time I call, they say they've disabled the visa checkout $20 off code for everyone, or it has expired or doesn't exist. Does anyone else have this problem?

  9. Just saw the Spectrum Mermaid Brush set on Groupon for only $27 plus $9.95 shipping! I paid $75 plus about $15 shipping directly from their site.Thinking about buying another one. . .
