Re: Active Promo Codes #19

I got bag number 2, and have 3 on the way, anyways tho Im upset though because it’s missing the hourglass mascara and that was what I was looking forward to the most Smiley Sad. The lip colors are Baby doll for the laura mercier, birthday suit for tarte and double dare for kat von d.


I really like the bag! The backside is a stretchy soft cotton like fabric which is pretty neat!







RE: Re: Active Promo Codes #19

Nice catch though!!

Re: Active Promo Codes #19

My version of this bag had the Hourglass mascara, but not the KVD lippie. It's like whoever packed these was allergic to the number 10 :/

Re: Active Promo Codes #19

@sabrinas Thank you for the pictures! And I love your sheets (are those sheets haha?) Smiley Happy

Re: Active Promo Codes #19

@ohheyitscindyk Its sheets! I got a full flannel bed set from kohls last year on black friday for only $20!!! I was like hey who doesnt want pink cat sheets?! Lol

Re: Active Promo Codes #19

@sabrinas They're so cute, I need to check out Kohl's haha!

Ugh, not Birthday Suit AGAIN! I just chose this one this...

Ugh, not Birthday Suit AGAIN! I just chose this one this morning because of the other lip items - I was a little hesitant, though, because I had a feeling what the tarte one would be.

Re: Active Promo Codes #19

Does anyone know if they will offer different bags for cyber Monday ? I wish they had the price point less than $45. 

Re: Active Promo Codes #19

there will be one @ $35.$45 and up

Re: Active Promo Codes #19

@BeautyWonder I doubt they would release more bags so close, but you never know. Last year, they did a new sample every hour for 12 hours, with $20.

Re: Active Promo Codes #19

@ohheyitscindyk  Thanks for the info 

RE: Active Promo Codes #19

for CANADA 🇨🇦 samples are only 8 instead of 10 for the US side also the PACK LIGHT sample bag is missing the HG hourglass mascara in the picture but it shows in the promotional picture at homepage of the app. BEWARE

Re: Active Promo Codes #19

GOBIGGER (and GOBIG) is on, everyone! Enjoy Smiley Happy

Re: Active Promo Codes #19

Thank you! Just placed a new order~~😉😉😉

Active Promo Codes #19

READYTOJET is OOS which stinks since they took away the GOBIGGER option on black Friday. making me question purchasing today or on Cyber Monday

Re: Active Promo Codes #19

mondays buy ins wont be as pricey 

Re: Active Promo Codes #19

Wow, I've never seen a $90 buy in before, and the bags are basically remixes of old Sephora Play! boxes. Easy pass on the holiday bags this year, especially because I received an order today with two of the old Play! boxes. They cost $16 (I used the 20% discount) for 10 samples + 2 perfumes + 2 more samples from checkout, and they're samples I am actually interested in.


I am a little disappointed that they didn't put more effort into curating some awesome holiday bags because I'm always down for a good GWP.

Re: Active Promo Codes #19

I'm kind of happy that i think the bags are ugly this year... much less tempting. $90 or $45 for foils just isn't doing it for me.

Re: Active Promo Codes #19



Details & dates below, note that the discount is now off $75, not $50, as in previous years.

this is disappointing, but I usually saved these coupons...

this is disappointing, but I usually saved these coupons for my "luxury items". (last year I bought my first tom ford palette) it's still a better discount than 20% off

Re: Active Promo Codes #19

Yeah, not really excited by this at all. I actually held off shopping last weekend thinking the $25 off $50 and I thought I’d be a smart shopper. Jokes on me 😐

This is also why I haven’t re-Rouged this year, even though I’ve hit Rouge every other year since the program started. The benefits have been diluted so much, and if all I’m getting at a couple of extra 20% off weekends, we’ll i can get that AND great gift bags at just about every other retailer out there.


Let’a do the math: $25 off $50 = 50% off if you shop precisely, but $25 off $75 = 33.3% off. I know, it’s still a great deal BUT I didn’t plan to buy $75 worth of stuff, just wanted $50 worth of merchandise, so now thisncoupon is pretty much useless to me. I have to hunt down $25 worth of items I truly want to receive a smaller percentage deal? Not savvy shopping for me personally. 


In addition, this used to be a gift card, so you could also get a GWP along with the $ off, so it was a really nice perk once, but now it isn’t as special and Rouge is barely getting more than the next tier down despite spending more than twice as much as those benefitting at VIB level. 


But let’s not forget that the other tiers have been impacted as well. $20 off $50 = 40%, while $20 off $75 drops the discount to 26.7%. I know a lot of retailers right now have at least 25% off AND let you stack GWP offers with their discounts.


Finally, BI used to get $15 off $50 = 30% discount, but that now has dropped to $15 off $75, which is 20%, so it’s on par of the discounts that lots of places offer at this time of year.
