Today Only: 50% Off All Make-Up @ The Body Shop Canada (EXPIRED)

Today Only: 50% Off All Make Up @ The Body Shop Canada (EXPIRED)

Ladies, how many of you spend tons on makeup? I know I do and so, it’s deals like these that really tickle me pink! Today only, you can save 50% off all makeup at The Body Shop Canada.

I have been meaning to try The Body Shop’s selection of makeup for some time now because they’re all-natural. There is nothing worse for your skin than dabbing on a whole bunch of chemicals that will only clog your pores and make you break out even worse, especially since it has long been known that natural ingredients actually have a much better effect on us all around.

Since I’m out of foundation, I found the all in one face base on sale for just $11 (reg. $22). Normally, I would never consider buying makeup like foundation online without trying it on first because finding the right shade can be tricky but with this sale, I don’t even mind paying $11 for the wrong one. Plus, the fact that it has nearly 200 reviews with a 96% success rate is definitely putting my mind at ease. Among a slew of positive comments, here’s what one happy reviewer had to say about this foundation:

I am a makeup fanatic and have always been in search for the perfect powder. Have tried various high end brands in the past: Chanel, Shiseido, Mac, etc. but it wasn’t until i discovered TBS All in one face base that my search has stopped.

Available in 10 shades, it has a matte finish and a velvety feel. Plus, there is also a handy video on how to apply it the best on The Body Shop’s site.

My mom has long been telling me about the benefits of chamomile on the body and so, I’m very tempted to give the camomile gentle eye makeup remover a try as well. It’s on sale for just $8 (reg. $16), is both fragrance and colour free and has an 86% success rate. I have sensitive skin and so I’m happy that it’s also suitable for this kind of skin type. I am, however, curious as to how it holds up against waterproof eyeliner and mascara.

There is plenty more makeup to choose from though, so be sure to have a quick look around. If you shop for $50 or more, then you can pay just $5 for shipping. For free shipping, you need to spend a minimum amount of $75. However, your savings are sure to cover the shipping charge, even if you shop for under $75.

Marcelle Canada Promo Code: 30% Discount

Posted by on October 11, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Marcelle Canada Promo Code: 30% Discount

It’s the week-end and the Thanksgiving one at that, so treat yourself to some new cosmetics and save 30% off your entire order at Marcelle.

Click here to shop @ Marcelle.com now

  • Coupon Code: FALL2014
  • Discount: 30% off
  • Expiry: 14th October 2014

Ever since ordering from Marcelle a couple of months ago, I have been using the 3-in-1 micellar solution priced at $19.95 on a daily basis and I have to say that I absolutely love it. It comes down to just $13.96 with the discount. Prior to using it, I had been using a Laroche-Posay micellar solution, which is more expensive. At the time of purchasing it, I had used a Marcelle coupon code to bring down the price even more and I am so happy that I decided to try a different cleanser because not only is it cheaper, but it works just as well.

Plus, I really like the bottle itself because instead of having to tilt it to pour the solution onto a cotton pad, all you need to do is place your pad on top and press down. It seems to me like this method is much more efficient as you get the same amount of cleansing solution each and single time. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I spilled my Laroche-Posay one or got it anywhere but onto the pad.

Along with the micella solution, I had also added the Xtensin Plus+ Prolash growth complex mascara to my shopping cart to give it a try and I do believe that its promise of “creating visibly longer and thicker lashes in just 2 weeks” appears to have worked. Ever since buying it, I have been using this mascara every day as part of my make-up routine and I have definitely fallen in love with it. It doesn’t clump, goes on smoothly and does appear to extend my lashes. Plus, it’s also very easy to remove at night as well. You can get it for $10.46 instead of $14.95.

I also use Marcelle’s waterproof eyeliner every day and it’s definitely one that I recommend one hundred percent. I typically put it on in the morning and then completely forget that I even have it on because I almost never need to re-apply it. Since it’s $10.95, it comes down to just $7.66.

As usual, shipping is free on orders over $50.

Moosers, what are your favourite Marcelle products?

Sephora Canada Promo Code: Free Sample Bag On Orders $35+

Posted by on September 9, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Sephora Canada Promo Code: Free Sample Bag On Orders $35+

Love samples? While supplies last, you can chose one bag of samples out of 2 choices when you shop for over $35 at Sephora.

Click here to shop @ Sephora.com now

  • Coupon Code: PROPICKS
  • Discount: free sample bag on orders $35+
  • Expiry: Unknown

I can never get enough of samples. Every time I’m at Shoppers Drug Mart, I make sure to ask for a couple of samples even if I’m not buying cosmetics. I have to admit that the make-up professionals look at me rather funny when I’m buying a bar of chocolate and asking of samples, but in any case, they oblige most of the time! So if you were planning on shopping at Sephora or something catches your eye, then make sure to use the code above for a free bag of samples. You are given the choice between the following two:

Flawless Face Favourites

  • Make Up For Ever HD Microperfecting primer in neutral
  • Make Up For Ever HD pressed power
  • Lancome dual finish versatile powder makeup in matte rose
  • Sephora Collection 10 HR wear perfection foundation in 30 medium sand

Standout Skin Care

  • Fresh lotus youth preserve radiance lotion
  • Ole Heriksen Truth Serum vitamin C collagen booster and pure Vitamin C youth activating duo
  • Josie Maran Pure Argan Milk intensive hydrating treatment
  • Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting moisturizer
  • Algenist advanced anti-aging repairing oil
  • Caudalie polyphenol C15 anti-wrinkle defense serum

All these very descriptive product names are great and all but to read more about them, click the link above and then click on each item individually to get a better idea as to their properties and usual retail prices. If you click on the “ingredients” of any given product, then you will also get a better idea of what each ingredient is supposed to enhance or eliminate.

My pick would definitely be for the standout skin care bag simply because there are more products to samples. I’m also particularly stoked to try the Origins GinZing energy boosting moisturizer since ginseng is reputed for enhancing vitality. The Josie Maran pure argan milk treatment is also one that I am looking forward to trying because my hair got noticeably stronger and shinier after I switched to an argan oil enchanced shampoo and conditioner. Although Josie Maran’s treatment is made with argan milk and not oil, I bet it’s still just as good.

Before completing your order, make sure to also choose 3 additional free samples as these are included with any order. For more Sephora coupon codes, keep an eye on the Bargainmoose forum.

Shipping is free on orders over $75, otherwise a $7.95 shipping fee will apply.

Marcelle Canada: B1G1 Offer On Everything!

Posted by on August 27, 2014 at 9:00 PM

Marcelle Canada: B1G1 Offer On Everything!

Love Marcelle? Then you’re in luck because just in time for back to school, they have just begun a BOGO offer on everything site wide. This means that for any item that you get, you will also get another same one for free! The second item will automatically be added at checkout.

Back in July, Marcelle ran an amazing offer with a discount of up to 50% off, which Eva wrote about at the time, and I actually took advantage of the offer myself. I managed to score four eye liners, one mascara, two lip glosses and two face cleansers for just $55 instead of a regular price of $110. Although this discount isn’t the same, I can tell you about the items that I got, as I just love them so much!

For years now, I have been buying the Marcelle waterproof eyeliner for its regular price of $10.95 and even at that price, it’s well worth it. At first, I used to only wear the midnight black colour but I have since switched to espresso and I absolutely love both. Although I need to sometimes re-apply it in the evening, it stays on practically all day and is indeed waterproof. The one colour that I didn’t particularly like, however, is the taupe, as it had too much of smudged-look for my taste but in general, all of their eyeliners have a great colour to them and are long-lasting.

I had also bought the Xtension Plus+ prolash growth complex mascara for $14.95 and although I haven’t noticed “visibly longer and thicker lashes in just two weeks” as Marcelle promises, I do see an immediate difference when I put in on. Another great thing about it is that it doesn’t clump, and wipes away easily if you happen to apply it to your eyelids, as it always happens to me.

Usually, I only use Laroche-Posay facial cleanser but this time around, I decided to give Marcelle’s 3 in 1 micellar solution a try and I loved it. Not only is it cheaper than the one I usually buy from Laroche-Posay as it’s $19.99, but it also removed all of my make-up from the very first try. I also really like that I don’t need to tip the bottle over to get the solution on my make-up remover pad; you simply need to press the pad against the top a couple of items instead.

Shipping is free on orders over $50 and is quick. Back in July, I had ordered on a Friday and received my order on Tuesday!

Clarins Canada Private Sale: Up To 40% Off Make-Up, Kits & More!

Posted by on August 25, 2014 at 9:00 PM

Clarins Canada Private Sale: Up To 40% Off Make Up, Kits & More!

Clarins usually only releases promotions for a free gift or a couple of samples with select purchases but this time around, you can shop their private sale for up to 40% in savings! This offer ends Friday, so make sure not to miss it.

On top of individual make-up products, there are also a number of kits available, namely the extra-firming all skin types kit on sale for $72 (reg. $85). Although it could be bought for personal use, I’m thinking of buying it as a gift for my mom as it’s a limited edition kit that contains the following products:

  • Extra-Firming Day Wrinkle Lifting Cream (50 ml)
  • Extra-Firming Tightening Lift Botanical Serum (10 ml)
  • Extra-Firming Night Rejuvenating Cream (15 ml)

It looks like it comes with a white make-up pouch, but the description doesn’t specify it. Plus, although the serum and the rejuvenating cream are both sample items, this is actually a much better deal than if you were to get the wrinkle lifting cream separately because on it’s own, it actually retails for $85! This is also one of Clarins’ most popular products. In fact, here’s a review I found on it:

I have been using this cream for over 10 years and loved it. I converted all my friends, mom and relatives to it. I am a Clarins addict using the whole line: eye, serum, cream. Most product lines, Sun screen, make up everything I use is Clarins.

I’m actually tempted to give the extra-comfort cleansing cream with shea butter a try as it’s on sale for $32 (reg. $46) as my skin is extremely sensitive and flairs up easily. Shea butter is one of my favourite natural ingredients as it’s a known moisturizer and also features the added benefit of nothing clogging pores. This cleansing cream actually has 5 stars out of 5 with close to 10 reviews, like the following:

I have dry sensitive skin. I love this cleanser… I use it with my Clarisonic and have given it to both my sisters… they love it too. I have tried many luxury brand cleansers and this is by far the most luxurious. My skin feels soft, moisturized and radiantly clean.

Speaking of which, if you’re interested in Clarisonic products, then make sure to check out the Clarisonic coupon code on our forum for a $10 discount on orders over $100 (new customers only). Shipping at Clarins is free on orders over $75, otherwise a $7 fee will apply for orders that fail to meet that threshold.

Lancome Canada Coupon Code: Free 7-Pc Gift On Orders $50+

Lancome Canada Coupon Code: Free 7 Pc Gift On Orders $50+

Christmas may still be a couple of months away but Lancome has released a Christmas-worthy promotion! Shop for over $50 and enter the code below to get a 7-piece gift, valued at $154, for free!

Click here to shop @ Lancome.ca now

  • Coupon Code: 7FAVES
  • Discount: free 7-pc gift set on orders $50+
  • Expiry: Unknown

My mom’s favourite brand of cosmetics is Lancome and the other day, while we were sitting outside enjoying extreme chocolate blizzards, I asked her why for the past couple of years, she has always preferred this brand. Since she has been particularly in love with Lancome lip glosses lately, I also asked her if she could tell the difference between a Lancome lip gloss and any other. Her answer surprised me.

Not only did she say that yes, she could distinguish Lancome make-up from other brands but she also said that Lancome smells differently and a smell that she much prefers. It’s not necessarily that her lip gloss stays on any longer, but she just quite simply loves the smell.

Although I’m not quite as good at distinguishing Lancome’s unique scent, I do agree that their products are superior to most, especially since I have actually had the pleasure of trying both the make-up remover and the mascara and I loved both. The mascara stayed on for a while and didn’t clump, while the make-up remover quickly removed all my make-up at the end of the night.

The 7-pc gift set comes with:

  • Visionnaire advanced skin corrector
  • Rénergie Multi-Action lifting firming cream for all skin types
  • Color Design sensational effects eyeshadow
  • Color Design sensational effects Love It lip colour
  • Bi-Facil double-action eye makeup remover
  • Hypnôse Doll lashes mini wide-eye look mascara in black
  • Lancôme cosmetic bag

Since it is labelled as a gift set, you could either keep it for yourself or you could also give it to someone, especially since it comes with a very convenient cosmetic bag, which is actually quite nice-looking as it’s purple in colour and features Lancome’s signature rose as the design.

You will have to shop for over $85 to get free shipping, but even with having to reach that minimum threshold, getting such a high value gift set is still well worth it. For more Lancome coupon codes, be sure to keep an eye on the Bargainmoose forum as they are always added upon release.

Vasanti Cosmetics Canada Coupon Code: 25% Off Everything Regular Priced

Get 25% off everything your little beauty heart desires at Vasanti with coupon code. This coupon doesn’t apply to sale items, so take advantage and get yourself some items you know aren’t likely to go on sale.

Click here to shop @ Vasanticosmetics.com/ca now

  • Coupon Code: VIP25
  • Discount: 25% off
  • Expiry: 31st August 2014

Now is the perfect time to stock up on all your fall cosmetics. I try to change up my beauty routine each season, as really, your skin changes with each season. I’m pretty minimalist in the summer, but try to play up my slightly darker skin with bronze, peach and neutrals. In the fall I love greens and browns. My winter skin is pale and demands help with foundations and blushes and strong lip colours. Also, after a summer of sunshine, your skin might need some help getting back to a balance state.

I am interested in this Brighten Up – enzymatic face rejuvenator. It breaks down dead cells and exfoliates to give you a glow that even your tan can’t match. While it is normally $34, you’ll take it home for $25.50 with this coupon, which is quite a nice savings. It has 67 reviews, which definitely espouse how great this product works. I think it will be great for peeling off that top layer of tan that will inevitably peel or fade on your face.

I love the Get the Look section, which is like having a beauty consultant at your computer. It tells you how to apply and what to apply to get a specific look, like the black smokey eye. Lately when I’ve been going out, I’ve looked at photos of me with my friends and realized how dull my makeup looks compared to theirs. I feel like I’m not up-playing my features enough for fear of looking like I’m wearing too much makeup. I love that the smokey eye tutorial really looks somewhat natural and not like I’m about to sing cabaret. I want to get the vibrant cobalt blue liquid eyeliner in Thunderbolt, which is regularly $18. Adding the coupon code to this will take the price down to $13.50.

Get free shipping on orders over $29, which is a nice, low threshold, especially for cosmetics that you might not want to spend hundreds on at once.

eSkinCareStore Canada Coupon Code: 20% Off Everything

eSkinCareStore Canada Coupon Code: 20% Off Everything

The Biggest Semi-Annual Sale is on at the eSkinCareStore and for a limited time, you can save an additional 20% off everything site wide for total savings of up to 60% off!

Click here to shop @ eSkinCareStore.com now

  • Coupon Code: BIG60
  • Discount: 20% off
  • Expiry: unknown

Although this coupon may be used on regularly-priced items, my first reaction is to always check the sale section of any store. In this case, it’s the “specials” category and luckily, there are plenty of products to choose from. Since my nails have been in pretty bad shape lately from frequently biting them, I have been wanting to try an at-home gel or LED kit. Luckily, the Alessandro striplac starter kit is actually already on sale for $122.85 and further comes down to just $98.28. The original price was of $189 and in fact, I found this same kit at Spa Boutique for $189.99, which means that you can get it for nearly $100 off!

It’s a six piece kit that comes with a UV-LED lamp, peel off UV-LED nail polish, Peel Off UV/ LED base & top coat, cleansing pads, a four step file and a cuticle pusher. Although eSkinCareStore’s site doesn’t have any reviews, I did find this review on Spa Boutique’s site:

I opened up my new Striplac kit for the first time last night, and OMG! I originally chose to purchase this system before others like OPI etc. because it is acetone free removal. (REMOVING GEL NAIL POLISH WITH ACETONE IS A CHORE!) before buying this kit, I was visiting the nail salon every 7-10 days for a gel manicure ($35 plus tax and tip!) due to either a chip, or just from craving a change of color. My nails look amazing! No different from how they look after the salon. I’m just thrilled!

By the way, the specials section has as many as 21 pages of discounted products to pick from and they all look pretty good!

Free samples are included with every order and if you shop for over $120, then you will also be eligible for a free gift from their list of 29 items, though some of these items have specific requirements. If you want the Institut Esthederm prolongateur de bronzage as your free gift, for instance, then you need to shop for over $120 of Institut Estederm products. Other items can be chosen with any order. My pick would be for the macadamia natural oil moisturizing rinse as it’s a conditioner that is supposed to detangle and leave hair feeling soft.

As for shipping, it’s only free on orders over $200, otherwise a $7.99 flat shipping fee will apply. As always, this eSkinCareStore coupon code may also be found on the Bargainmoose forum.

Tarte Cosmetics Canada Promo Code: 30% Off Everything

Tarte Cosmetics Canada Promo Code: 30% Off Everything

Make-up time! Tarte Cosmetics is rewarding all of its fans with 30% off everything site wide during their Friends & Family sale.

Click here to shop @ TarteCosmetics.com now

  • Coupon Code:  FANDF
  • Discount:  30% off
  • Expiry:  4th August 2014

Good news moosers: this promotion extends to sale items, which means that you can save even more on already reduced prices. You could, for instance, get the modernEYES waterproof creaseless shadow-liner for $11.20 instead of its $16 sale price (reg. $29). Powered by maracuja oil, it comes in a stunning black/ gold colour. With amazing reviews, here’s what someone had to say about it:

It’s really convenient to have a creamy, waterproof shadow and liner in one product. The color, golden beige/bronze, is a bit too light and shimmery for my light-medium complexion though.

Speaking of maracuja oil, you can also get it on its own in a collector’s edition super size. On sale for $83 (reg. $90), it can be yours for just $58.10. What makes maracuja oil so special? Essentially, it’s oil made from passionfruit seeds that is supposed to reduce redness and promote healthy skin recovery. Now, I wrote “supposed to” because when it comes to products and oils such as these, it all really depends on your skin. What might work for one person may not work for another. Do keep in mind, however, that Tarte’s maracuja oil is rather popular (in fact, you can watch Veronica Gorgeois’ Youtube review and comparison to argan oil on it as well) and Tarte’s own website has plenty of perfect reviews with many happy customers calling themselves believers of the oil like this one:

I started to use this product after having way too many problems with argan oil. I have fairly oily skin (esp in the warm weather!) and break out as though it were my job – even in my mid 20′s. I heard this product can help with acne and has amazing skin benefits. After trying a sample I could not dare pass up this mega size offer! The amount of rejuvenation and change my skin has gone through alone has made me a believer! This stuff is a skin dream!!! I recommend…. HIGHLY!

Another product I’m very curious about is the bright eyed & beautiful eye enhancing tool. It originally retailed for as high as $48 but is now on sale for $22 and can be yours for an even lower price of just $15.40. With the help of little vibrations, it is designed to help massage creams and oils into the skin (especially around the eyes). This could perhaps be the perfect tool to use with the maracuja oil mentioned above.

Shipping is free on orders over $75. Check out the forum for more Tarte Cosmetics promo codes.

Beauty Mark Canada Coupon Code: Get $100 Gift Certificate For Only $75!

Hey Bargainmoose beauty divas, I’ve got a sweet deal here for you today. Whether you are looking to amp up your beauty supply collection or are in need of a pampering gift, save $25 by buying a $100 Beauty Mark Canada Gift Certificate for only $75!

Click here to shop @ BeautyMark.ca now

  • Coupon Code:  xmasinjulyonline
  • Discount:  $100 Gift Certificate for $75
  • Expiry:  31st July 2014

Beauty Mark Canada specializes in carrying the latest top of the line products not easily available in stores.  Whether you are looking for the newest, most hip trends in makeup and skincare, organic and natural products, items for new Moms & babies, or something for the man in your life, there is sure to be something to meet your needs here.

For the girly girls:

BeautyMark.ca offers a range of great makeup items for every style.  I just fell in love with the ‘In The Moment’ Eye Shadow Palette from Stila ($50).  It includes ten of Stila’s award-winning eye shadows in neutrals and purples that can be worn wet or dry.  This palette also comes with an exclusive Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Tetra, a deep shimmering purple, and an eight page book to help you use the palette.

For the boys:

A must-have at the end of Movember, Mario Badescu Protein After Shave Lotion ($12) is meant to be applied immediately after shaving to promote healing on minor skin irritation caused by shaving like ingrown hairs and razor burn.  This product really pulls double duty as we ladies can sneak a little on our underarms, bikini line, or legs to address any shaving-related discomfort.

For the natural & organic set:

I’m ordering this asap: Principessa Notte Breeze Hair Powder ($12) is an all-natural, talc-free dry shampoo specially designed for dark hair!  My hair gets super dry if I shampoo daily, but I like to use a little dry shampoo on my no-wash days to keep my hair looking fresh.  This is a challenge with most powdery dry shampoos as I have to be very careful to apply only to the very root of my dark hair or the powder is visible. With vitamin E, aloe, chamomile, and calendula, this award-winning dry shampoo is suitable for all hair types and even doubles as a softly scented body powder.

Shipping:

As far as the Gift Certificate is concerned, there is no shipping as an online code will be emailed to you after purchasing.  Once you are ready to shop, you can take advantage of free shipping on orders over $99.  Standard shipping is a flat rate of either $9.95 or $12.95 depending on your order total.

Be sure to swing by the Bargainmoose forums for more Beauty Mark Cosmetics coupons later on as well.

Bobbi Brown Canada: $25 Beauty Bonus Card With Any $100 Order

Posted by on July 29, 2014 at 10:30 AM

Bobbi Brown Canada: $25 Beauty Bonus Card With Any $100 Order

Free stuff alert!  Until August 3rd, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics is giving away a free $25 Beauty Bonus Card with any $100 order!  There is no promo code necessary to redeem this offer.

Are you up on the standards for how often you should replace your makeup?  I knew that mascara should be replaced every three months, but I was recently startled to read that there is a recommended two year shelf life on most powders and pencils.  I would wager that I have eye shadow in my makeup bag from around the turn of the century or even before.  I clearly need to do a pretty major makeup purge.  Now is as good a time as any, considering I love getting a freebie when I’m shopping for stuff I already need.

I recently blogged about another deal at Bobbi Brown that’s over, but I did some research on a few of their more popular products, so you may want to check this out before you shop. My research this time took me to Bobbi Brown’s Customer Favourite Buffing Grains for Face ($50).  This cute jar is filled with ground Japanese Adzuki Bean Powder and can be added to your own cleanser or used just with water to give your face a gentle yet thorough exfoliation.  I know some days my skin needs more exfoliation than others, so I like that I can choose just how much of this product to use. Reviews are mostly positive: 94% of Bobbi Brown reviewers recommend this product, and here is what one had to say:

 Scrubbing Bubbles:  That’s what it feels like on my face when I add these little grain bits to my lathering tube soap. It feels sooo good! When I rinse my face, it’s a true Ahhh moment! The glass bottle is so attractive. I keep it sitting out on my sink. : )

There are another couple of awesome reasons to shop BobbiBrown.ca right now as well; Use the code SKINDUO to get free samples of Bobbi Brown’s Hydrating Eye Cream Deluxe and Hydrating Face Cream Deluxe along with free shipping on orders over $40.  On top of that, Bobbi Brown always throws in a complimentary sample at checkout with any order.  I was able to choose between a Hydrating Face Cream Sample Packette and an extra Eye Repair Cream Sample Packette.

Shipping

Bobbi Brown offers free shipping on all orders over $75, so if you spend the $100 to get the free bonus card, you’re already there.  If you want to spend less but still get free shipping, that SKINDUO code will get you free shipping over $40.  There are no additional duties on BobbiBrown.ca orders.

Marcelle has a great deal going on that will make you want to pull out your wallet and spend some money. Basically until Sunday, when you buy two products, you’ll save 20%, when you buy three, you’ll save 30%, when you buy four, you’ll save 40% and when you buy five, you’ll save 50%!

Marcelle has a wide range of skin care and makeup products. I used to use their moisturizer religiously and loved it, and I really don’t know why I stopped. Right now, I’ve been using up samples of moisturizer from different brands that my mom passed down to me that she didn’t want when she bought other products. So far, I haven’t found any that I love. I really want something with an SPF built in as I do not apply sunscreen each day. I have found my face is getting splotchy and red around the nose. I really could use that sunscreen. I found this Essentials multi-defense cream with SPF 15 for $19.95.

Cleanser is also an area where I am lacking, and I couldn’t believe that I found a cleanser for only $1.99. The ultra gentle cleansing gel is hypo-allergenic, oil free, is also free from a bunch of other items, and made in Canada.

What is awesome about this is that you can spend on $2 items to get up to the 50% off mark. For example, I added four of the ultra gentle cleansing gels to my cart for only $1.99 a piece. I then added the Essentials multi-defense cream and my whole cart was discounted by 50%. If you couldn’t find five items that you really want, but want the discount, this might be the way to get the best bang for your buck on the items you really want in your cart.

You’ll want to spend $50 to get free shipping, which might be difficult when you get such a large discount, or might not be if you want to get a lot at the great discount!

Lise Watier Canada Promo Code: 10% Off $50+

Lise Watier Canada Promo Code: 10% Off $50+

Get 10% off your order of $50 or more at Lise Watier.

Click here to shop @ Lisewatier.com now

  • Coupon Code: LOVE75LW
  • Discount: 10% off $50+
  • Expiry: 31st December 2014

What’s totally awesome about this coupon is that you can use it again and again until the end of the year. You can use it for your summer beauty needs, your fall beauty wants and your winter beauty aspirations. Then you can get some Christmas gifts too! Because Lise Watier also gives free shipping and two free samples with a $75 purchase, this seems like it will be the amount you want to spend each time. If you want to order more than this, I suggest splitting your orders to get the best value.

While I wouldn’t exactly call Lise Watier “inexpensive” skincare and makeup, with this coupon, you can save some money on high-quality items for your face.

If you are looking for a gift idea, say for a wedding shower or someone’s birthday, I know many ladies out there would appreciate a beauty kit. This Coffret mascara dramatique comes with a lash booster mascara, a smokey kohl velours (eye pencil) and a mini size solution double (makeup remover). You could get one for your friend and one for yourself. While this would have normally cost you $64, you’ll pay only $57.60 for both kits.

I know I have tried the makeup remover before and really fell for it. I didn’t fall for the price, so I wasn’t sure I wanted to purchase it again, but seeing as it would be 10% off if I stocked up, I should get a few. Instead of $24 each, I could get them for $21.60 a piece. What I liked about this is that I really didn’t have to scrub, the makeup just came right off, even waterproof mascara.

As I get older, I find that I need a little more makeup, but it needs to be the right makeup. I feel like I look washed out, so some eyeliner on the top lid would do me well. I’ve always had a fetish for liquid liner, especially for nights out so this Feline eyeliner is perfect. It is $20 and said to be a must-have. It also comes off easily with the above makeup remover. If I spent over $50, I’d get $2 off each eyeliner.

There are a few other Lise Watier coupon codes in our forum, so you might want to check them out and see what interests you the most and gets you the best deal.

E.L.F. Promo Code: 40% Off Sitewide On $35+ Today Only

I’ve got a secret for you… get 40% off sitewide at Eyes Lips Face with promo code, today only! If you go to their site, you might notice there are coupons on there for 20% off and 30% off, but no 40% off is mentioned. This 40% off is on $35+. Shhhh….

Click here to shop @ Eyeslipsface.com now

  • Coupon Code: BDAY40
  • Discount: 40% off
  • Expiry: 15th July 2014

I was hoping to tell you your order would be discounted 40%, no matter what you order, but by doing a little research, I found out it is on orders of $35 or more. The other coupons are on orders of $20 or $30, so if you don’t plan on spending that $15 or $5 extra, you’ll want to use those ones.

I found E.L.F.’s prices are already very affordable. So, when you add on the extra 40%, you’ve got yourself some awesome deals. E.L.F. does ship from the U.S. and all prices are in U.S. dollars, so be aware of this when you are shopping.

I need some new eye shadow, so I took a look at the sets that are full of colours. I’m not one to wear the same colour day after day, so this is perfect for me. The spots are each small enough that if I don’t like a certain colour, its not a huge loss. Then, if I do like a colour, I can order a larger size. This makeup clutch palette was $30 and on sale for $15, which means I’m already getting a savings.

I also just ran out of foundation, and the oil-free e.l.f. studio HD mattifying cream foundation is only $6. I like that it has six colour choices.

When I go out on the town, I like to add a little something-something to my normal makeup routine. Body shimmer is the perfect little touch that will help me stand out. I can use it on my face or my chest and it is only $3!

Mineral eye liners are must haves for any look. There are five colours to choose from and because I like to change up my look, I’d get the black, coffee and metallic purple. They are only $3 so I can afford to get more.

If I got all of the above items, I’d normally spend $35 (or $50 if the makeup clutch wasn’t on sale), but when I add the coupon code, I’ll get everything for only $21!!

Shipping is going to be $14.95, but with such a small order, I don’t think you’ll get charged duties. Be sure to check for all of our E.L.F. coupon codes in the forum.
