Beauty Land Bargains and Sales

Published in: News


*LAST UPDATED: 7/1/2008


So, tonight I’m on the hunt for beauty bargains and sales, trying to track down the mythical 50% off everything at MAC coupon code (lol, I wish!). I haven’t found any superb deals so far (Shu’s 20% off Friends & Family sale ends tonight, bummer), but a number of companies, like MAC and Sephora, are offering deep discounts on select summer products. Quite a few also do free shipping on purchases over a certain amount.

Here’s what I’ve got so far: these are ongoing sales and promotions at some of my favorite beauty and cosmetics companies. Most of them are only valid online (unless specified otherwise) and, unfortunately for ya’ll overseas, only apply to orders shipped in the continental US.

Ladies, if you find any cool makeup and beauty sales, coupon codes or promotions (international ones too) and leave them in the comments, I’ll update this post with the new info. 🙂

    I noticed that Victoria’s Secret has a big 50-75% off sale with their cosmetics and body care items. If you want to be in style this fall, you had better pick up one of their golden glosses in a tube for 75% off! I do not buy my underwear there. I am not sexy enough. hahahahahaha
