Free Shipping at Prestige Cosmetics

Woohoo, this just came across my inbox – you can get free standard shipping on all orders from Prestige Cosmetics now through 12/31. There’s no minimum order amount required, and no code necessary. That makes me squeal with delight because this line is already very affordable, but I hate paying as much or more than the item in shipping! New to Prestige? Find out my favs after the jump.

Shopping Rave – Buy In Coins

It’s not that often that I write just to plug certain websites, but I’m a huge fan of this site Buy In Coins! They are based in Hong Kong, and offer wholesale prices on a vast selection of different things. They have tons of As Seen on TV items such as the PedEgg (another thing I’m obsessed with!!!), Smooth Away, and the Wonder Hanger. For those of you who didn’t catch my post about them, I LOVE the Wonder Hangers! I wish I had known that Buy In Coins had them when I got my pack for $9.99, because Buy In Coins has a pack of 8 for under $6. The Boyfriend and I have very limited closet space and those guys RULE for organizing closets.

I can’t even describe exactly how much stuff they have on their website. But one major reason you might want to check out the online store is they carry the 88 palettes. They have lots of palettes actually, including the 28 Neutral Palette, several 120 palettes, and even a 180 palette. Check out the full selection of palettes here. In addition to all the yummy palettes, there are always loads of fun makeup brush sets and other goodies like gel eyeliner, false lashes (synthetic, not human hair), and a nifty concealer palette that I actually have in my kit.

There are a couple other things about BIC that make me like them a lot. First, they not only have great prices, they will price match if you can find something cheaper. Here’s the icing on the cake though: not only is everything on this site cheap, they offer free shipping on everything for U.S. orders. If you’re not in the U.S. here’s information about their shipping policies. The only drawback to ordering is their shipping can be kind of slow (it is coming all the way from Hong Kong after all) but for FREE who could complain?

If you decide to order, there are a few ways to save even more off their already super low prices. The first is a Christmas code! It gets you 9% off (random amount, I know). That code is XMAS2010. Another deal that gets you an additional 5% off your purchase is if you have a “recommender” (referral). You’d just type in my nickname “alysonwithay“. They also take a penny off for each item you purchase after the first item. So for example if you order 6 items, they will take 5 cents off your order. No code necessary for that!

Happy Haul-idays!

Stila Friday Happy Hour!

Hiyas everyone just wanted to let you all in on Stila‘s Friday Happy Hour deal this week. You can get free shipping and a free lip glaze! Best part is you get to choose from three different flavors!
Codes…FRUITPUNCH for free shipping and a lip glaze in Fruit Punch, SUGARPLUM for free shipping and a lip glaze in Sugar Plum, and BROWNSUGAR for a lip glaze in Brown Sugar. Easy peasy. :)

Stila has some really cute sets available for holiday, including this fabulous brush set with pink ferrules for only $28! That’s a steal for Stila brushes! The #9 brush is in this set, which is one of my favorite brushes.

Free Shipping at mark. Cosmetics

I wanted to let all of you know that you can get free shipping with no minimum purchase at my mark. cosmetics e-boutique through the 29th. The code you need to use is SHIPFREE. To clarify, this code is good on any domestic order. I think that only means the contiguous US, not including Hawaii and Alaska. Sorry guys, I don’t make the rules, mark. does. :(

If you are international and unable to get mark. where you are, I have done orders for international girls before so contact me if you’re interested. :)

And if anyone wants suggestions for what to check out, here are my faves from mark:

1. Make it Big mascara – For big fat lashes that don’t smudge or flake!
2. On The Edge liquid liner & Metalliners – These liquid eyeliners are SO easy to apply that even I can do it! And the Metalliners come in waterproof, too.
3. I-Mark custom pick eyeshadow – There are some really gorgeous shades in this line. Try Tiki, Victorian Lace, Plum Velvet, and Java.
4. Snap To It cases – These magnetic palettes are made to fit mark. eyeshadows and blushes, but they work a treat for just about any pan eyeshadow. They work best for squares, so these would be great for those Shu Uemura pans, depotted Ulta shadows, and more. They are very very sturdy and easy to use.
5. Just Pinched gel blush sticks – These are a great, cheaper alternative to Tarte’s cheekstains. They dry a little more than those though, which remain sticky on the skin. The colors are really nice, too.
6. Lemon Sugar shower wash – My mom swears by this. I think she’s on her 3rd bottle? Her favorite smelling shower gel.
7. Juice Gem lipglosses – delicious scents, moisturizing, sheer wash of color. Winners all around.

– a $10 gift certificate for every 500 points you accumulate
– 1 bonus deluxe sample with every order (bringing the total of samples with every order up to 3)

With this program in addition to the Let’s Do Lunch specials and the free shipping, Smashbox is looking pretty good as far as brand retail sites go. Others should follow suit!
