Vasanti Cosmetics Canada Coupon Code: Exclusive 25% Off Everything

Get 25% off your order at Vasanti Cosmetics with our Bargainmoose exclusive promo code.

Click here to shop @ Vasanticosmetics.com now

  • Coupon Code: MOOSE25
  • Discount: 25% off
  • Expiry: 13th July 2014

My makeup drawer really needs a revamp. I seriously have makeup that I bought for my wedding almost ten years ago. I don’t think there is anything wrong with it, but they do say makeup has a shelf life of a year usually. Obviously my mascara gets replaced often because that tube can be a hotbed of germs, and my foundation as well because I use it up, but eyeshadows and pencils, those are lingering in my drawer.

With this coupon code, now may be the time for me to freshen things up. Vasanti has this cool feature called “Get the Look” where they show you a model and then show you what products she used and how to get the look she has on her face. I have always wanted to try a smokey eye, and this is helpful. I am partial to liquid liners, especially for a going out look, and this storm lightning eyeliner is a colour I would love and would contribute to my smokey eye look. Regularly $18, add the coupon code and save $4.50, paying only $13.50 instead.

As always with a promo code that includes sale items, I headed over to the sale section. They have a bunch of duo silky eyeshadows on sale for $10 from $20. I found this champagne topaz and coppery bronze, which is perfect for a sun-exposed face (read: tanned). Add the coupon code and get it for $7.50.

Shipping is free on $29, which is awesome, because sometimes you don’t want to spend $50 or $100 on cosmetics to save the shipping. Don’t forget to stop by the Bargainmoose forum to check out more exclusive coupon codes and see more for Vasanti Cosmetics.

The Bay Canada: Free Shisedo Gift With $43+ Purchase

Posted by on June 21, 2014 at 9:00 AM

The Bay Canada: Free Shisedo Gift With $43+ Purchase

The Bay has a really great free gift offer with beauty purchase on right now until the end of this month.  When you spend just $43 or more on anything from the Shiseido line at The Bay, you will get a free gift with your purchase.

This gift is free and it includes five different beauty items.

Now, it does not actually say what you get as the five free items with this deal, but it does show you a picture of the free gift.  From what I can see, you will get a beauty bag, a compact mirror, a lip gloss, a package of makeup wipes and some sort of skin care beauty cream.  It does say it will include a variety of makeup and skin care items and the last one they offered had some great free products, so this time around it should be the same.

A gift like this is perfect to pop in your beach bag to freshen yourself up after a day outside.  I like to to take the free gifts camping with me because a lot of the time they are the smaller sizes and are perfect for traveling. They are also a great way to try out some new beauty products without actually having to buy them yourself. if you are feeling really generous, you can give away the free gift to a friend or family member.

All of this will be free as long as you spend just $43 or more, you will get this awesome free gift.  If you have an HBC card, I suggest you spend just a couple more dollars.  You will get free shipping on orders of $99, or on orders of $45 with your HBC Card.  It is worth the extra $2 dollars for the free shipping for sure!

Topbox: Limited Edition Topbox Kits $40 – $49 (Up To $160 Value)

Posted by on June 17, 2014 at 8:00 PM

Topbox: Limited Edition Topbox Kits $40   $49 (Up To $160 Value)

Topbox Canada is offering limited edition TopBox Kits for only $40 to $49 when they each have a value of $140 to $160. To sweeten the deal, they throw in a free magazine subscription with each one and free shipping.

To clarify: these are available to non-subscribers of Topbox. You do not need to be a member of Topbox’s usual beauty box subscription service to buy one of these boxes. There are three new summer limited edition kits available:

Limited Edition The Kit Topbox

This kit includes 13 products to test out including well-known brands like Burt’s Bees and Marc Anthony along with some great cosmetic companies like China Glaze and GOSH Cosmetics. Enjoy products for your face, nails, hair, and skin. The kit will cost you just $49, and is valued at $160+. Receive a free one-year subscription to The Kit Magazine.

Limited Edition FLARE Hot Summer Picks

This kit includes 10 products for you to try from brands such as Shu Uemera, Aveda, and essie. Included in your box is a sampling of such decadent products like scented oil, gradual tan lotion, and even a pair of Blush Riley Drop Earrings from Jewels and Aces. The kit will cost you $40, and has a value of $140+. You will receive a free one-year subscription to Flare and free shipping. You also have the option of gifting the Flare subscription.

Limited Edition Chatelaine Topbox

This topbox is also valued at $140+ and is currently being offered for $40 with free shipping. It includes brands such as Ceramic Glaze, Be a Bombshell, Kiehl’s and Yves Rocher. There are nine products in all and seven of them are full size. The Sweet Pea Mango Papaya Soap looks the most interesting to me. You will also receive a free one-year subscription to Chatelaine magazine with your Topbox.

The last Topbox listed, the Limited Edition LOULOU Summer Topbox I blogged about before so you can click through that link and check it out. These three above are the new offerings and, indeed, the Chatelaine Topbox just started shipping on June 15th.

These Limited Edition TopBox Kits are a great way to sample new brands and products without paying full price. If you have a couple girlfriends, it is always nice to pick up a couple different boxes and split the contents based on skin shade and colour preference. I use to split beauty boxes with my Mom when I was younger.

Free Mirenesse Cosmetics (Just Pay Shipping)

Posted by on June 8, 2014 at 3:07 PM

Free Mirenesse Cosmetics (Just Pay Shipping)

Mirenesse is a brand of cosmetics which we’ve never before mentioned here on Bargainmoose before. They’re an Australian brand, and I’ve heard of them as I spent a year in Oz and they were a very popular range of items. They offer a range of their cosmetics on a free trial, and you just have to pay the shipping fees to get these samples and try them out.

(UPDATE – the above category link appears to be dead now, but the links to individual items below still are working)

For each item that you add to your shopping cart, you are charged a shipping fee which appears to be a flat-rate of US$8.95. If you’re interested in trying out any of these cosmetics, you’ll have to weigh the shipping fee against the value of the free item to make sure that it’s worth it for you.

For example, I tried it out on this Instant lash transplant extensions mascara which is one of the items in the free trial. The mascara is worth $29.96 but it was totally free and shipping was only US$8.95.  For me, that’s a great price for a good quality mascara.

Some other items you can choose in the free trial:

Some of the items listed in the free trial section are showing up as “sold out” so quantities may be limited. If you are interested, place your order sooner rather than later to make sure you are going to get what you want.

As Mirenesse is an Australian company, and the items ship from there, I can’t imagine that the shipping will be fast… so you might need a little patience before you get your hands on these new cosmetics. Also, as these items are free, I don’t think that you need to worry about the customs and duties limits for importing your order to Canada… that usually only comes in to play on items worth $20+… but hopefully the invoices with these will show a zero value on the items, as you are only paying the shipping fees.

TIP: If you want a few of the items, place individual orders – you’re paying the same shipping fee but it may reduce the chance of customs getting picky.

EXCLUSIVE: Lise Watier Coupon Code: 20% Off Anything!

Posted by on June 6, 2014 at 2:13 PM

EXCLUSIVE: Lise Watier Coupon Code: 20% Off Anything!

For the next week or so, we’ve set up an exclusive coupon code with popular Canadian beauty boutique, Lise Watier. If you’re shopping there, you can instantly save 20% on ANY order! Here are the exmoosive details:

Click here to use the Lise Watier coupon code online now

  • Coupon Code: MOOSELW14
  • Discount: 20% off
  • Expires: 13th June 2014

The coupon code applies to any items on the Lise Watier site, from makeup to skincare items.

Free Shipping

If you’d like free Canadian shipping on your order, you’d have to make it up to a value of $75 or more. Otherwise, standard shipping is only $6.50 and the 20% coupon code pretty much covers that if you’re only placing a smaller order.

But here’s a little shipping trick which could be good to know – as long as your order is $75 or more BEFORE you apply the coupon code, you STILL get free shipping. For example, I had an $80 order which qualified for free shipping. When adding the Bargainmoose exclusive coupon code, the order value dropped to $64. That’s under their threshold for free shipping, but free shipping still worked! This could be handy to know, in case you are trying to pop something small in your cart to get it over the free shipping threshold on Lisewatier.com.

Free Samples

You also get two free samples if your order is worth $75 or more. I believe these are automatically placed in your order.

How Tos

Lise Watier has a great Youtube channel with some how-to videos which could be useful. The one on the personal correctors is quite good. There are some other videos there that show you how to achieve a certain look, such as the Eden Tropical visage – her eyes are beautiful in this video. I enjoy seeing tutorials like this, because I really like to experiment with eyeshadows and colourations when I’m going out for a special occasion.

I’m desperately in need of some new lipsticks and one that caught my eye was this ROUGE GOURMAND VELOURS Lipstick which is priced at $22 on Lise Watier (pictured above). It drops to only $17.60 when you apply the promo code. There are some very daring colours though – would you wear any of them?

We’ll save this Lise Watier promo code and any others on our coupon forums here. Always check it before you make an online purchase!

The Green Kiss Canada: 40% Off Natural Makeup

Posted by on April 30, 2014 at 9:30 AM

The Green Kiss Canada: 40% Off Natural Makeup

The Green Kiss Canada sells all natural, organic, and vegan beauty products. Such products are often hard to find in Canada, so I am always delighted to blog about a new to us store. The Green Kiss is also offering 40% off a selection of all natural cosmetics right now.

On my wishlist for a long time has been the 3 in 1 Freedom Glow Beauty Balm from Revolution Organics. This all-in-one beauty balm infuses lips, cheeks, eyes, and decolletage with a natural glow. The colour ‘bronzed’ is on sale and is for those girls who are sporting a good tan, or have medium to darker shades of skin (not this ghost writer). Originally $36.99, it is now on sale for $22.19.

Another total want is the Natural Lip Gloss by Revolution Organics. You can choose from Freedom, Innocent, Truth, or Vibe colours which all are such fun flirty glosses! They are rich in vitamins and antioxidants to not only leave your lips glossy, but also moisturized. Originally $28.99, the gloss is now on sale for $17.39.

Check out the Natural Eyeshadow in Vavavoom by Sappho Cosmetics that is on sale for just $15, originally $25. There are three other colours to choose from if that one doesn’t float your boat.

The Green Kiss offers free shipping on orders of $99, or else shipping is a flat $10. As per usual, I suggest stocking up a bit when shopping at any website to get the most bang for your buck.

Bobbi Brown Canada Cosmetics: 3 Free Samples With Purchase

Posted by on April 28, 2014 at 4:30 PM

Bobbi Brown Canada Cosmetics: 3 Free Samples With Purchase

Bobbi Brown Canada has a great site wide deal that does not require a coupon code.  Enjoy three free samples with any purchase for just one week only.

There is no minimum purchase to get these three free samples, so you can buy as little or as much as you would like and still get them. Not only will you get three samples for free, you will also get to choose which ones you would like to get!

Right now there are eight different samples to choose from.  They are offering moisturizing cream, mascara, cleansing oil, eye cream and more. I think the key is to pick something that you may want to buy in the future, but would like to try out first  This way, you can try it for free so there is no risk if you end up not liking it.

With a free offer like this, it is the perfect time to grab Mom a beauty Mother’s Day gift. You can buy something for her and then keep the free samples for yourself!

If you are spending $50 or more, I suggest using the Bobbi Brown coupon exclusive SKINTRIO14 at the checkout.  It will get you a free trio gift and free shipping with your purchase of $50 or more, instead of the regular $75 or more.

Beauty Sense Canada: Free Shipping & No Tax

Posted by on April 23, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Beauty Sense Canada: Free Shipping & No Tax

Beauty Sense Canada offers free shipping across Canada with no minimum required. Also, buy what ever you want right now and pay no tax.

I’m not all too familiar with most the brands that this website carries so most you will need to check out for yourself. The only brands I actually recognized were Clarisonic, OPI, KamaSutra, and Jane Iredale. I am interested in a few things from a couple of those brands that are pretty inexpensive so the free shipping and no tax offer is pretty appealing.

OPI is a wonderful nail polish brand that many of the spas I have been to use. I always found their names as entertaining as their shades. I love this OPI: Bubble Bath for a beautiful spring shade on your nails. It is $11 with no extra costs. I am in love with orange clothing this year but I am not sure about orange nails. If you are more adventurous than I, try out the OPI: On The Same Paige polish for $11.

I have had this Jane Iredale Active Light Under Eye Concealer on my wishlist for several months now, I just need to figure out the right shade. i have read a few reviews of the product that tote it as fantastic for raccoon eyes like mine. It costs $30.

Beauty Sense Canada also offers 1 – 3 free samples per order. They also have a whole bunch of gifts with purchase when you buy a minimum amount of certain brands. Check out their website for fun beauty finds and maybe some new brands you have never heard of before.

For other companies that offer free shipping with no minimum, check out our free shipping page.

The Bay Canada: Free Tote & Tree Planted With $65 Purchase

Posted by on April 20, 2014 at 8:00 PM

The Bay Canada: Free Tote & Tree Planted With $65 Purchase

April is earth month and the brand Origins is celebrating by planting a tree and offering you an eco-friendly tote when you spend $65 or more on their products at The Bay Canada.

So this deal might not seem that big; however, I like to think if it as getting something really useful, a tote which you will probably use to death, and then giving back to the environment by getting a tree planted in your honour. I think both are fantastic and noble gifts with purchase and really celebrate the spirit of Earth Month.

This Origins Make it Bright Set is right on the money costing exactly $65. It is a collaboration between Dr. Andrew Weil and Origins. Included in the set is:

  • Mega-Bright Skin illuminating cleanser 1.7 fl. oz/50 ml
  • Mega-Bright Skin tone correcting serum .5 fl. oz/15 ml
  • Mega-Bright SPF30 Skin tone correcting oil-free moisturizer 1.7 fl. oz/50 ml

This makes a fantastic gift for someone special, say your Mom for Mother’s Day.

The Origins 24 Hour Anti Agers is another interesting set that costs $69. What appeals to me most about this set, honestly, is the bag it comes with. It is just uber adorable. The set includes:

  • Plantscription SPF 25 Anti-aging cream, 50ml
  • Plantscription Youth-renewing night cream, 15ml
  • Plantscription Anti-aging cleanser, 30ml

When your cart totals $65 or more worth of Origins products, the tote will be added to your cart for free. Any cosmetics orders of $29 or more also ships for free when you use your HBC Card, so you need not worry about shipping costs either. If you don’t have an HBC Card, get one already!

Clementine Fields: Free Gifts With $80 Purchase

Posted by on April 19, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Clementine Fields: Free Gifts With $80 Purchase

Clementine Fields has a special promotion on this weekend where you will receive a free gift with any order of $80 or more. The gifts are pretty good value so I am very happy about this promotion.

Lets get a couple things cleared up first: Clementine Fields is a one-stop-shop for natural beauty supplies. So if you are into beauty without nasty chemicals doing harmful stuff to your skin, this is the place for you. I also think this is a great time to mention that April is Earth Month where we celebrate all things natural, clean, and earth friendly. Now, on to the deals.

Spend $80 pre-tax and receive:

I just placed an order because the Osmia Organics Spot Treatment has been on my wishlist for ages now and I was really happy to be afforded the opportunity to receive it for free. I am also very interested in the Graydon Glow. I just found out about Graydon yesterday, but they are a Canadian cosmetics company that makes some pretty awesome stuff. My order consisted of their The Putty for $29 , and The Serum for $46 which have got really fantastic reviews for repairing damaged skins and combating acne naturally. I plan to use the Graydon Serum at night with my moisturizer and the Spot Treatment in the morning… or maybe reverse that.

Free gift with purchase occurs as long as quantities last (so just make sure product is still in stock). No need to add it to your cart and no coupon needed. They will just send it to you.

Topbox: Limited Edition FLARE Mani-Pedi Kit – Only $25

Posted by on April 18, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Topbox: Limited Edition FLARE Mani Pedi Kit   Only $25

I blogged about Topbox.ca for the first time a couple days ago, and they have another limited edition kit I wanted to mention. The FLARE Mani-Pedi Kit is only $25 and comes with free shipping. You do not need to be a subscriber to purchase this kit.

Oddly enough, Topbox does not give the retail value of this box. So I had to run around and do a little price comparing myself. First of all, the box includes the following:

  • Six full sized quick-dry polishes: Tickle Me Pink, Trouble Maker, Get Juiced, I Lilac You, Strawberry Shields, and Jaded
  • Cuticle Eraser and Balm
  • Dry and Go Drops Top Coat
  • A nail file
  • 12-issue subscription to FLARE magazine – a $12.95 value

What you are getting is the Sally Hansen Salon line of products. This nail polish retails for $7.99 a bottle at Well.ca as does the top coat. I couldn’t find the exact cuticle cream pictured, but a different one by the same company costs $6.99. So the approximate value of this kit is $63 excluding the magazine subscription (or $76 total value including the subscription). I think you are getting a pretty nice deal.

They also offer limited edition boxes that are a one time purchase. This LOULOU box is a limited edition offer that you can get without a subscription. It is a one time box deal.

The LOULOU Summer Topbox includes:
