Freebies & deals

Thursday, October 21, 2010

Who doesn't love getting free stuff? I sign up for free samples all of the time. Sometimes I use the samples to see if I like a product - and sometimes they're samples of things I know I like, so I save them to throw in my toiletry bag when traveling.

One of the places I use for my freebies is All You. You can sign up for a daily reminder email, or you can just go directly to the website. I tend to get busy & forget, so I'm signed up for the daily reminder. They have a different freebie each day - and you can check previous days to see if the offer for those days are still available. See the freebies here.

They also have a blog that lists other freebies on the internet.

Other places I check for freebies:

One of the places I like to shop for deals on makeup is Most of the time, the products are things that were limited editions or have been discontinued - but the mark-downs are fabulous. They have special sales that are only announced to those who receive their emails, so be sure to sign up for that.

And don't forget Sephora's Friends & Family 20% off promotion!! Rumor has it that the sale is starting Oct. 21 (which is tomorrow, but I'm not posting this until tomorrow, so it's really today to you, LOL). I don't know the code yet, but as soon as I know, I'll edit this to show it.

Edited to add: The Sephora sale has started!! 20% off through Nov. 3 with code FF2010. Happy shopping!!

I thought the Sephora sale wasn't supposed to start until the 22nd, but I just tried it after reading this with the code FF2010 and it worked. :) Didn't bother going through Ebates for additional savings because they wouldn't give it to me last year. Apparently that's just being greedy. LOL

I ordered the Bobbi Brown creamy concealer kit, tinted moisturizing balm, a Korres night cream, and an Illamasqua gloss in Move for my mom. I want to try those for myself, but I can't justify another lip product in my purse or bathroom right now. Then I got my 500-point Bare Escentuals goodies (which comes with a gloss sample...Oops). Yay! What's on your list?

Wow, you cleaned up! LOL! Can you believe I don't have a list? I know I'm getting some cologne for Gus, but I'll have to go poking around the site for stuff for me. I was thinking about trying the Amazing Cosmetics concealer - and the NARS foundation that MakeupGeek recommends. Plus I'll probably check out some of the gift sets/palettes for Christmas gifts.

I've been putting off buying stuff I needed because I knew the sale was coming up. I've been out of concealer and night cream for a while. LOL The lipgloss is a gift for my mom's birthday. I hope it gets here before she does! I ordered the rest of her gift a while ago.

Oh, I forgot to say that the Amazing concealer does look good. I played with it at Ulta. I'm not sure the lines under my eyes would like it, but it does have "amazing" coverage and a good range of colors.

And no, I can't believe you don't have a list. Are you okay?? haha

Kim said...

LOL! I am a bit dizzy today...

I'm wondering if the JCPenney Sephora that's only 5 miles from here has the Amazing Cosmetics concealer. I should run up there to try it & test colors. I could test the NARS foundation too, if they have it.

I don't remember the last time I bought a lippie. There must be something really wrong with me! LOL!

Eclectic Musings said...

hahaha Maybe you just came to the same realization that I did: Sometimes, enough is enough. Then you start buying clothes, books, and workout DVDs instead...*sigh*

I haven't checked JCPenney's Sephora out, so I'm not sure.

Kim said...

Busted. I've been buying clothes. And I just bought Just Dance 2. :-)

Eclectic Musings said...

hahahahaha I'm relieved to know that I'm not alone.

What do you think of Just Dance 2? I want it. I want Ramona to do it with me, but she's not interested. I wanted to use her as an excuse to buy it because I enjoyed the first one so much back when I got to use the TV many moons ago.

Kim said...

Well, my back has been giving me fits for over a week now, so I haven't had much chance to play it - but the few songs/dances I tried were fun! I think it's harder than the first one, but there is cool music. I like that there is an "exercise" mode!
