Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

Welcome back to the deal sharing fun! Deals shared here may also be posted to my blog (same name as the thread) unless you write for BT only. If I share your deal, I will always thank you here. I will heart every deal I see (without an outside or cheat link) to acknowledge it.


Beautytalk (the forum) does not allow outside links. A heart with no comment means I already have the deal or am deciding not to list it. Please list the retailer (without the link or cheat link; dot com) if it is not mentioned in the picture. Mods come in more often when they see any type of link. Thanks for sharing (original deals and repeats are welcome)! Please also share any deal haul you want, especially mystery gifts.


Discussion is encouraged. A lot of questions come with certain deals or retailers. When I see questions I can answer, I will respond (unless the poster consistently ignores me or someone else already answered the complete question). I read all the main posts (so no need to tag me). If you're replying to a post that is not near the top of the thread and want me or a specific person to see it, please tag us.


If you're posting about something on sale at Sephora, please share it here:


I thought I edited this to leave a message here, but after reading some private messages, I realize it did not take. This time, I will make sure it does before I sign off. Instead of waiting until I can return to reading every message to return at all, I will just pop in on certain days. I hope everyone is doing well. For me, some days are better than others.

Spotted this at my local T.J. Maxx 


Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

That's a great steal...I've been looking for this one.  How do you like it? Was it worth the buy?

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

Does anyone know if it's expired makeup?

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

Question for you beauty veterans around here - is this like the makeup sale time of year, or is it like this year round? It seems there's almost always a deal going around (just recently, I stumbled on the MAC sale, and I got into Sephora BI just before their sale). On the one hand, I want to take advantage of the discounts, but on the other... I'm not sure I'm really saving money, because I keep finding new things to spend it on. lol

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

There are year-round deals. It just depends on which sales you want to take advantage of. I got 25% off MAC in March. That was more than I am used to seeing, but I do not remember seeing it in March 2016.


Now that MAC is at Birchbox and Ulta, I look forward to seeing whether it will be included with its sales. One thing I like about Sephora sales is they are only twice a year, but they do not have exclusions. 

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

@Magycmyste  Personally, I feel like there has been a barrage of sales and deals for the entire past year with no break!  In case you didn't know, Nordstrom has a yearly anniversary sale from July 21 - August 6 this year (if you are a cardholder you get early access; not sure what those dates are,) and they usually have at least a few incredible deals.

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

There's a new Birchbox x Vogue Anniversary Box with a value of $224, for $68! Most of the products are full size and some of the products come in exclusive shades.

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

I love rose anything, so this box is right up my alley! Thank you for sharing this because I have a tendency to just delete my Birchbox emails haha 

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

Thanks for posting! Good products, very good value. 

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

For those of you who like Estee Lauder Perfume:


I don't know if it is a glitch or what but at ULTA in the sale section there is a promo for "Estee Lauder Modern Muse Chic or Modern Muse Le Rouge Gloss    Buy 1 Get 1 FREE "


But it is actually the perfumes that are BOGO. So this is an awesome deal. If you need a referral for $10 off $30 let me know as I do believe it will work with this promo. I just paid $88+tax for 2 1.7oz perfumes.


I will post this on the ULTA page too.

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

I don't think it's a glitch because I saw the same promotion on the Estée Lauder site and at other sellers like Belk a few weeks back. Really good deal! 

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

This deal has been around for a while now.  It is an online only deal though so not available in stores.  I had ordered one of each and wanted to exchange the Chic version for another Rouge Gloss in store but the manager said she would not be able to override for the price adjustment..

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

From Colourpop:


Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

Just to add to this awesome announcement, there is also free international shipping for $35+ purchases. The free shadow is gorgeous too! 



Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

Thanks! Just made my order. Love that they're also doing free domestic shipping! 

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

Does anyone know where you can check Perricone MD batch numbers?

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

@lapins. A site called Cosmetics Wizard has a a batch code calculator for a number of brands.  Not sure if Perricone will be listed there. 


Have you thought about posting this question on the Question Thread - perhaps someone will know there?


Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

@ZombieMetroAnt Thanks, you're right - that's a good thread to ask in!


I had a look myself at various batch calculators and couldn't find out so I emailed Perricone MD CS and they were helpful though sadly confirmed that the sample I'd got from Bath & Unwind in Jan did expire at the end of Feb, and thinking about the gwp deal confused my brain enough to make me ask here on the deals thread 😛


Anyway I know it's not unusual for gwps to have a short date but for anyone else who got this deal, def check the dates.


Now to figure out if the numbers on the SkII sample I got recently do really mean it expired in 2014!!

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

Lime Crime is having a pretty good sale. Some awesome bundle deals & liquid lipsticks marked down as low as $5! I snagged a couple things. I know there's some controversy about the brand, but please don't shoot the messenger lol. 

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

meh, I like the products I've tried, appreciate the heads up. do you know if the diamond crushers are any good @JayJayyy?

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

@Alicehoopz I haven't tried them yet, but I did pick up the shade Dope for $14. I watched a few YT videos and they seemed beautiful. I grabbed the True Love bundle for $10, the M$LF set for $28, and the liquid lipstick Dream Girl for $5.
