Hey everyone! Lately, I’ve been shopping around and finding some really awesome deals on my favorite thing – makeup! Some of them are just too good not to share with you guys, so today I’m sharing with you how I’ve gotten a ton of really great deals on makeup and beauty products. A lot of them are super discounted, and some fo them are even FREE! So here’s how I’ve scored some super crazy amazing deals on beauty products in the past week:
Many makeup sets at Sephora are super reasonable, and with some, you can get free makeup with it! Many of the mini sample sets come with a voucher to redeem one full-size item once you have used up the items in your box! It’s honestly a really great deal, especially if you like trying new products. I got a box of 5 mascara samples for $25, and at the end, I brought in my voucher for a free full-sized mascara of my choice. You can’t get much better than that!
Okay, listen to me on this one. I know TJ Maxx and Marshalls don’t usually carry the best of the best, but they get new items in all the time and if you get there right after they’ve gotten a new shipment, you can find some really amazing stuff! I regularly buy Batiste dry shampoo from TJ Maxx because it’s so much cheaper! Also I am super proud of this find right here:
I know right!! I honestly can’t believe I found this for 50% off, and it works perfectly!
Almost every store has after-holiday sales….except Sephora. Boo. But, I have another alternative for you! Check out other stores that sell makeup like Target, CVS, Walgreens, etc., because they always have makeup on clearance after the holidays! Here’s a secret tip: check the holiday section of Target after Christmas, and you’ll find tons of amazing makeup and accessories for a fraction of the original price! The reason for this is that they’re trying to get rid of their holiday sets, which is awesome for us! I paid $8 for this Real Techniques brush set just a few days ago! That’s more than 70% off! It’s really worth it to scan the Christmas section if you’re looking for a good deal.
If you’re a makeup junkie like me, you’re probably already a VIB at Sephora! But if you’re not already, join the rewards programs at your favorite makeup stores – it’s totally free, and it comes with some great perks! Every time you buy products, you accumulate points on your card, which you can cash in for free samples every month! The more points you have, the better and bigger the rewards, so I always save mine for a really great reward to come out!
Subscription boxes are a fun way to try new products for a super low price! I love Birchbox, which is only $10/month for a box full of 5 samples tailored to your specific beauty needs! One great perk about Birchbox is that they have stores in many major cities, and if you purchase a subscription in-store, you can build your own box for no extra cost! So if you purchase a 6-month subscription in-store, you can make a seventh box right there in person for no extra cost! Another great subscription box that I’ve heard about but haven’t tried yet is the Walmart beauty box which is COMPLETELY FREE!! Yep, you heard that right! The only cost to you is $5 shipping, and you get a monthly box filled with both full-size and sample-size goodies! The only downside is that it’s not customizable, so it’s a complete surprise what’s in each monthly box. But for $5, I think it’s a pretty sweet deal!
