Deals Too Good to Pass Up 2021

Thanks to @notcreative for starting the Deals Too Good to Pass Up (and website of the same name).


This thread will be for posting deals too good to pass up!  In this thread, please keep deals on topic - mainstream/"prestige" beauty only.  Please post deals you really love, and think others will love, too!


Help us keep this thread fun and interactive.  If a deal has already been posted, please do not post the same deal a second time.  This will keep the thread easy to read.

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up 2021

I've only tried the cleanser from this set: but I didn't really love it.  


Looks like the 50% off is only for the cleanser in the jars, but this is definitely a good deal if it's your jam!

Thanks for sharing @fantaji !

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up 2021

Yay, @itscarin is back and her math skills are back, too! ☺️ Exciting! So only prestige beauty here, no drugstore offerings? I wasn't sure if mainstream/"prestige" was an either/or or both.


P.S. How is the baby???

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up 2021

@civ2ru Baby is good, thanks for asking!  


The intention behind "mainstream/"prestige"" was meant to indicate things carried by sephora, or things ulta would label as "prestige".  Drug store items would be excluded.


I think one of the reasons this thread has died off in the past is too many "lackluster" deals as someone else put it.  It's hard to define what's a good deal and what's not.  I think it's a combination of a dollar-off amount, a percentage-saved, and a perceived-scarcity.


20% off at Tarte isn't that exciting, for example, because they do it so often.  20% off at Sephora is a little more interesting because it doesn't happen often.  Similarly 50% off a $10 item isn't that exciting, whereas 50% off a $100 item makes the deal more appealing.  


I hate having an undefined answer about what a "deal too good to pass up" is but there is a bit of je ne sais quois involved.  Hope that helps.  🙂

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up 2021

@itscarin I understand. Your thread, your rules! 😁 I’ll just keep posting Target deals on my little thread (, even though I’m the only one who ever posts there 🤣, but somehow I still keep going. With new brands constantly being added, and particularly with Ulta also coming to Target soon, I see potential there. (For instance, did everyone know they just started carrying Nails Inc?) Perhaps not as “exciting” as you put it, but good for many staple items, with a plethora of “deals”. Call it my labor of Target love.


P.S. Glad the baby is good and you’re back in beauty action! 👍🏻

50% off Palettes at Benefit direct.  Also, free shipping with code "freeship" -- which incidentally, is the same code for free shipping at net-a-porter if you buy something from their sale section.  (The freeship question came up several weeks ago, probably not so relevant now but in case anyone was wondering what it was.)

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up 2021

Thank you @itscarin for posting this deal!  I actually needed a new tube of my EL foundation since mine is just about finished.  

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up 2021

@guzelkiz Haven't seen you around in forever!  I hope you're doing well!

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up 2021

@itscarin haha I know!!  I've been so MIA.  This pandemic has been a roller coaster.  But I'm glad things have been generally ok at my end.  How are you?  It really has been too long.  

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up 2021

@guzelkiz I'm doing well!  The pandemic is the last thing I would've expected to be dealing with but yeah the writing was on the wall if you look at back at the literature on the subject.  Hindsight is 2020.  And of course, you never expect things to go bad until they do....  Expect the worst and you'll never be disappointed!  🙂  I was reading/watching this piece the Washington Post did on the economic impact of the pandemic on families -- it's called "Living on the brink: One family’s struggle to survive the pandemic" if you're interested.  Anyway, I watched that and afterwards I'm so thankful that I can put food on my table.  It's something so small that we take for granted.  2020 is definitely not my favorite year but there is still so much to be grateful for.  

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up 2021

@itscarin It was a horrible timing for me, particularly because I had just started a new job on March 1.  Due to the pandemic the nature of my position was totally changed, the boss didn't let me do much of anything to help improve the business even though that's what I was hired to do.  Eventually I was able to switch jobs again.  2020 was the first year where I had to job hop but yes, I agree that I am very thankful to always have been able to put food on the table.  Others have been hit much harder than me and I am so grateful for all that I have.  I'll definitely check that out, thanks!

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up 2021

Thanks @itscarin for posting this, and for divvying up the deals thread into a couple different options! 


FYI, Rakuten is 10% for BG right now, so you'll really get 40% off EDIT: yeah, I realize it's 10% after the 30%'s been taken, so it's not truly 40%. It's not far off, though. 


And see, I managed to resist all the PMG options—even the LuxeTrances shades I love, which would've all been duplicates/backups for me at this point—but Chantecaille and Surratt did me in. 

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up 2021

@WinglessOne  Darn it.  I got BG confused with Neiman Marcus and didn't check before I placed my order because I thought they quit Rakuten.  Thanks for sharing!
