Sephora Friends & Family Sale

The Sephora Friends & Family Sale (20% off your entire purchase) is working a little differently this year. In the past, there has been one code that anyone can use over and over again until FF is over. Now, you will get a 1-time code that is unique to you.
How to get your Sephora F&F Code:
1. Visit www.sephora.com/friends and type your email address in the dialogue box.
2. Your unique 1-time use code will load on the screen after you submit your email.
Good To Know:
You are only allowed one code per email and 5 email addresses per computer.
Your codes are unique to you. So if you give it to a friend, you can’t use it.
And you can only each code one time.
These codes are not valid with any other codes (in other words, no code stacking).
$50 free shipping still applies (in past years it has been based on your total before your discount).
You can still use ebates! Don’t forget! :)
This is going on until 11-2! But stuff tends to sell out, so get shopping!

Beauty.com 20% Off Friends & Family Sale

The 20% off Beauty.com sale is here, everyone! From now through Friday get 20% off your order. But wait, there’s more! ;) Beauty.com is currently offering 12% cash back through Ebates as part of Ebates’ 12th Anniversary event! So remember to log in to Ebates and click through from there instead of just going straight to Beauty.com even though I know it’s tempting because it’s a Beauty.com sale! 

So what are my “stuff to check out” picks from Beauty.com?
Deborah Lippmann nail polish retails for $16, which is pretty steep, so if you have been longing for some of her extremely unique shades, now is a great time to loosen the steel grip you have on the pocketbook. I only have one shade, Across The Universe, and it’s 100% worth the splurge. Same goes for Butter London nail polishes, which are $14 – All Hail The Queen is my favorite.
Beauty.com has a lot of niche brands that you can’t find at Sephora, like It Cosmetics. I’ve been really liking the It Cosmetics brow pencil, and HD powder! Another really nice high-end brand you won’t see at Sephora is Jouer. I’ve mentioned Jouer’s lovely lipstick in Meredith as one of my favorite nudes. I also really like their Luminizing Moisture Tint in Pearl. 
Do you miss CARGO from its Sephora days? Or Sue Devitt? They’re still around, and available at Beauty.com, along with some brands even I haven’t tried yet, like Knockout Cosmetics or Mally Beauty. Of course, if you still want to be a savvy shopper and aren’t open to veering from the Sephora-norm, or just want to stock up on your essential, never-be-without-them items, fabulous brands like NARS, Smashbox, Tarte, Stila, LORAC, Urban Decay, and Too Faced are all available on Beauty.com as well.
I haven’t even gotten into the skin care or bath options at Beauty.com yet, and there’s hair too, wow! Some of my favorite skin care/bath/hair items from Beauty.com are: (note, I am not necessarily using these currently as my skin has changed fairly recently, but they are all products I’ve used and highly recommend!)
I’m not sure if I’m going to be hauling yet. Gotta take a look at the finances. ;) But if you are hauling from this sale, please comment and share!

Saving Cash with Ebates

Ebates is having some special deals going on right now in order to celebrate their 12th birthday. Yeah, you read that correctly – 12. Very few things on the internet have survived for 12 years and continue to grow strongly. For some of my teenage readers, that means Ebates has been around since before you were allowed to use the internet unsupervised! Okay, making myself feel old. Back to the important part – saving some cash with Ebates! Ebates has partnered with several of their most popular retailers to offer 12% cash back in honor of their 12th birthday! You can see the entire list of retailers offering this here, but these are the ones I’m most excited about:

Beauty.com, The Body Shop, The Container Store (great for makeup storage!), Drugstore.com, DSW, Endless, Old Navy, Philosophy, Petco (for my babies!), Sephora, and Stila. 

What is Ebates & How Do I Use It?
Ebates is a great way to save money on online purchasing because for every purchase through one of their thousands of retailers, you get a % cash back just for clicking their link to the retailer. No scams, no hidden catches, just straight cash homies! If you aren’t a member yet you really ought to be (click here to sign up)! I’ve been a member of Ebates since 2007, and my mom is a member too.

So how do you use it? It’s super easy. Once you’re a member, any time you want to do some online shopping go to Ebates.com, log in, and search for the retailer you’re looking to buy from. Ebates has all the latest coupons for that retailer, and a link to shop that store. Click that link. Ebates will open a “tracking ticket”, which is just some information for their system that shows you clicked the link. These tickets are important, because if for some reason something happens and you don’t get the correct cash back, your ticket # is your reference # when contacting customer service. Once the tracking ticket opens, you are redirected to the retailer, and you shop as normal. Within a few days after placing your order, your Ebates account will show new cash back in your account. It’s that simple.

OCC IMATS Discount Available Online

If you can’t make it to one of the IMATS trade shows this year, or if OCC was sold out of the goodies you had your heart set on by the time you got to their booth, never fear! OCC has your back! From now until the 17th at 11:59 PST, you can get the 20% off discount exclusively on OCCmakeup.com.
You must log in to use the discount! The username for this discount is OCCDISC and the password is IMATSNYC.
Then you do your shopping as usual for 20% off cosmetics (not including airbrushes or airbrush products). Any products added prior to logging in with the discount will not be discounted, so you must do that first to get the discount. 
Also be sure to check out OCC’s first “Garage Sale“. They are clearing inventory of some discontinued products at huge discounts! And if you’re logged in with the discount code above, you’ll get additional savings.
