  • Reader Tamiko left a comment about this below (Thanks, T!) and several of you have kindly commented and emailed me about this deal over the past few weeks (thank you!).

Everything in the store is 50% off, which includes inventory from MAC, Bobbi Brown, Estee Lauder, Clinique and other Estee-Lauder-owned brands (excludes Tom Ford, Jo Malone and Le Mer). Inventory varies from store to store, so if you have a few CCOs in your area, you may want to hit them all this weekend!

Free shipping on orders $49+. If you don't know what a Melmer is, it's a popular storage system for nail polish and/or makeup and it's similar to the IKEA Helmer (thus, the nickname "Melmer"). You can see it in action here. This is not the lowest price of the year (on Black Friday Melmers are 60% off). But if you need one, this is the second-lowest price of the year.

  • There are no brand exclusions to this event. All 172 mascaras here are eligible, including travel sizes as low as $10
  • To sweeten the deal, look for Gifts with Purchase that are attached to select mascara brands. For example, there are GWPs here for Clinique, Lancome and more. So let's say you purchase two Clinique mascaras that add up to at least $27. You could then get another mascara for free (any brand), PLUS this free Clinique 7pc gift. And of course free shipping and your usual 3 free beauty samples. Also, if you spend $125 on beauty or fragrance online you will also receive this free 24pc gift, no code required.
  • It's important to remember that when you add three mascaras to your cart, you will get the lowest-priced mascara for free. So try to pick three mascaras that are all around the same price, for maximum savings.

  • Now through 5/29, Clear the Rack event online and in-store. Receive 25% off clearance items (discounts reflected in item listings online; in-store you will get the discount at register). 
  • TIP #1: As you know, Nordstrom Rack doesn't carry beauty online, but if you stop by your local Nordstrom Rack this weekend, look for clearance items because you'll get an additional 25% off those items at the register!
  • TIP #2: Nordstrom Rack and HauteLook share a cart (see HauteLook listing above). That means that items from both sites combine to get you to the free shipping threshold of $100.

  • Now through 5/29 on the Murad website, receive free shipping on all orders and a free deluxe Essential-C Day Moisture SPF 30. No code required. 
  • Now through 5/31, you can stack the above offer with one of these offers: receive 20% off your order with code SAVE20 or spend $85+ to receive 3 free deluxe samples with code BEAUTY.

  • PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO SIZES! For instance, the Irish Moor Mud Cleanser 1.0 oz. is on sale for $2.50 but if you look closely, the Irish Moor Mud Cleanser 2.0 oz is ALSO on sale for $2.50! So if you see something you like, look carefully through the listings to see if there's a better deal on the same product, in a different size! (Thanks to Jennifer Baustian and Tamiko R for the tips!)

    Thanks again for the fantastic info!! xo

    1. Hi G! I don't think the "MAYBOX" code for the Target may box is working. Unless anyone had any luck? I tried it now and go the following error: "promo code MAYBOX doesn’t apply to any item in your cart"

    2. Oh no! I didn't get a chance to test it because I have already ordered that box, but I'm guessing it expired. Will remove the listing now. Thank you for letting me know!!

Also when I was talking to an associate that works there the other day they said they don't know if they are offering the 50% off on the the weekends until Thursday of that particular week.
