Weekend Beauty Deal Round-Up & Reminders (In-Store Beauty Event at Target on Sunday and More)

I have a new round-up for you today, in case you're in the mood for a little beauty shopping this weekend. I am SO bummed that I was dealing with car issues all day yesterday and didn't get a chance to post about that Stila deal that was happening on the Stila website (25% off with free shipping). That deal ended at 5PM Pacific on 5/5, which is right around the time I was done with my car stuff. Ugh. Anyway, thank you SO MUCH to everyone who emailed and commented about that deal. Again, I'm so sorry I didn't get to post, but Stila is on HauteLook right now so there's that (link below).

BEAUTY BAY - Check out the sale page here for some deals up to 50% off. Free worldwide shipping on orders $20+. When you click that link, you'll see that Dose of Colors matte lipsticks are on sale (select shades $14.70; the same shades are $18 on the Dose of Colors website where you have to spend $40+ for free shipping) as well as some deals on Morphe, BH Cosmetics, Violet Voss and more. NOTE: Beauty Bay is based in the UK, so it can take a while to receive your order if you're in the US. I have ordered from them before, and I usually get my orders within 2 weeks, but sometimes it can take 3 weeks.

BEAUTY BRANDS - there's a 9pc fragrance gift here that you can get for free when you spend $25+ on Philosophy, NEST, or Tocca. Free shipping on orders $50+ and a free 3pc mystery sample set with all orders. Don't forget to check out the beauty sale page here for items as low as $1.50.

BH COSMETICS - now through 5/7, receive 20%-30% off all items here plus receive a surprise gift with orders $20+. Free shipping shipping on orders $45+ right now (usually $50+).

COLOURPOP - for a limited time (no end-date given), receive free worldwide shipping on all orders, no minimum required, no code required. To go with this promo, you can pick any 3 shadows or pigments here for $10 and pick any 3 liquid lips here for $12. Spend $20+ and you will receive a free mini Ultra Satin Liquid Lip. (Thanks to readers @lipdrama and @colourpopcult for the tips!)

DERMSTORE - now through 5/7, receive 20% off sitewide with code MAY2017. Free shipping on all orders. See list of brand exclusions here.

ELF - there's a new Ultimate Lip & Eyes Vault here for $45 (reg $60). Free shipping on orders $25+ and right now when you spend $35+ you can enter code SMOKY to receive a free Smoky Eye Set ($12 value).

HAUTELOOK  - Stila and Illamasqua sales are now live. Check out all beauty sales here. And don't forget that you get 3x points on all HauteLook, Nordstrom Rack and Nordstrom purchases through 5/7 (free to sign up here).

IPSY - there are a few deals in stock right now that you can check out here. Free shipping on all of those deals, and you do not have to be an Ipsy subscriber to purchase.

KOHL'S - now through 5/14, get $10 off $50 with this coupon in-store or online (online enter code MOMSDAY10 at checkout). This coupon does not apply to prestige beauty like LORAC or theBalm, but it DOES apply to non-prestige beauty like Real Techniques, EcoTools, Essie, etc. Thanks to reader ReedShoot for this tip and for letting us know that she tried this code with Juicy Couture and it worked. So definitely give it a try with fragrance and see what happens! Free shipping on orders $75+ or select in-store pickup to avoid shipping charges.

LAURA GELLER - now through 5/7 receive 40% off all kits here with code MOM40 and a FREE Mini Spackle Mist and Mini LashBOSS Mascara with all orders plus your choice of a 1 Spackle sample packet (no code required for those freebies). Free shipping on orders $50+.

MAC COSMETICS - now through 5/7 on the MAC website, spend $25+ and receive double samples with code DOUBLES at checkout. Free shipping on all orders and don't forget to check out the 40% off deals on the Goodbyes page here.

MACY'S (REMINDER) -  the 10% off code for beauty and fragrance (including sale items) ends on 5/7 (enter code FRIEND at checkout; excludes Chanel). They added a few new items to the beauty sale page here, including an Ahava set that could be a nice gift for Mother's Day. I suspect that they may ramp up on sale items before this code expires, so keep checking that page! Free shipping on all beauty orders.

NORDSTROM (REMINDER) - As you all know, Nordstrom is price-matching the 10% off beauty sale at Macy's; see beauty sale page here. So I'm guessing that the thousands of items on the sale page will revert to full price after 5/7. Also, they added some new items to the sale page (20%-50% off) since the last time I checked, which you will see when you click that link. Free shipping on all orders and your choice of 3 free samples with all beauty purchases. Try code CHANEL at checkout for an additional free deluxe sample. And don't forget that you get 3x points on all HauteLook, Nordstrom Rack and Nordstrom purchases through 5/7 (free to sign up here).

QVC - while supplies last (don't wait on this one if you're interested!), purchase any of the beauty items here (shipping is $2 for those items) and you will receive a FREE 6pc gift (pictured at top of page). This gift has a minimum value of $83 and will contain 1 full-size item, 5 minis and a makeup bag, but items may vary from what you see pictured.

RICKY'S - check out the 8 pages of sale items here for NYX eyeshadow singles for $1 and much more. There's a Dose of Colors lipstick on sale for $4 here (reg $16) and you get 3 free samples with that purchase, which you can view in the item listing. Free shipping on orders $50+.

SMASHBOX - now through 5/7 receive 30% off all lip kits here with code PUCKERUP at checkout. Free shipping on all orders. (Thanks to reader @_mely2 for the tip!)

TARGET - On Sunday (5/7) from 12-4PM  there is going to be an in-store beauty event at many Target locations across the country with FREE beauty samples from L'Oreal, Dove, Aveeno and more. CLICK HERE to view a drop-down list of participating stores. Also, not beauty-related but the Victoria Beckham collection is 30% off online here (some things are sold out but worth a look; these items are also on sale in-store). Free shipping on orders $25+ or free on all orders if you have a REDcard debit or credit card (you'll also receive 5% off all orders with your card). (Thanks to reader @makeupbykifana for the tip!)

ULTA - Free shipping on orders $35+ is still active and there are two deluxe freebies that you can get right now with ANY online order. Add this deluxe Matrix duo to your cart and add this deluxe Garnier sample to your cart and once you add anything else to your cart both will go from $10 to FREE. Also, the LORAC Dance 'Til Dawn palette is back in stock for $10 (reg $19) and three Clinique skincare sets are 50% off here. View all prestige beauty sale items here. Also, check your account for a new multiplier: some members are receiving an offer for 5X points on all Lipstick Queen products. And don't forget that MAC goes online starting 5/7 (I'm guessing the products will be live at around 10PM Pacific tonight, 5/6).  (Thanks to readers @pretty_matte and ChiChi20 for the tips!)


  1. Wait! Wait! MAC is available on the Q? All I can say is Wow!

  2. Thanks for doing this, as always. You're the best! Just ordered three Colourpop shadows!

  3. I just did the QVC deal. (Bought the Julep polish trio.) I was worried because the gift bag never showed up in my cart. But it did show up when I got my order confirmation email. Just wanted to let you guys know, in case you were concerned about not seeing it there when you check out. thanks for this tip G!

    1. Thank you for this comment! I was trying to figure out why it wasn't showing up for me either. Much appreciated!!

  4. I have never tried Colourpop (even though it would seem right up my alley) because I *hate* paying for shipping. This deal might have gotten me, though - thanks, G.!

  5. Just an FYI the Ulta $35 for free shipping must have ended yesterday, I just went online and it's back to $50 threshold (although I am not platinum?)

  6. Currently standing in Target waiting for demonstrators to stop gossiping and start. They haven't unpacked boxes or set up but instead are too busy trading stories. Seriously unprofessional. Anyone know where I can bring this to the attention of management? Would it be Target or someone else?

  7. Thanks for all the tips!
    I really really like the Lorac $10 palette! It's perfect for my fair skin for an everyday look :) might get another one for gifting!

  8. Hey G! Went to Target today for the beauty event. In the sample bag was a Dove Dry Shampoo, one of the three various types of L'oreal clay mask and an Aveeno moisturizer.

  9. Costco has the posh cosmocube marked diwn to $50.00. In store it was originally $129.99. On the cosmocube website is currently $185.00. A really goid deal

  10. As of 5/7/17 9:31 PM PST, I'm seeing 15% cash back on Ulta, so be sure to turn it on!

  11. Hi everyone!!! Just a reminder that it is EBATES birthday week which means 15% cash back on certain stores including Ulta (it ends tonight so act fast!) Also, 15% off on amore pacific, Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus and many more so stack those deals with 15% cash back with ebates

  12. Hi, G! Ulta has a Spring fragrance box set that comes with perfume sampler and a voucher for a rollerball of choice based on brands in the box. Their box is priced $14.99. Sephora 's sampler box with voicher included is always priced at $25.

  13. G have you seen the new Revlon Youth FX line. I saw it at right aid. So curious to see how it is.
