So, I kind of cheated on my no buy because it was my birthday a couple weeks ago. I did end up spending a couple dollars on makeup. However, I thought it would be fun to share the awesome deals and free items I was able to get.
NYX– Engraved lip oil. Nyx gives you $5 for your birthday and currently, they have free engraving for Makeup Crew Members and had free shipping on their new products. I have heard amazing reviews on their lip oil, so I went ahead and ended up getting the lip oil for $1. However, when it arrived they hadn’t engraved it, but I was not entirely surprised given what I paid for it. I am really loving this lip oil though, it gives a nice hydrating shine to the lips with a slight tint of color.
Ulta– Lancome monsieur big mascara. Ulta also has a rewards program, offering a freebie on your birthday. You don’t need to buy anything, you can just go into their store anytime during the month of your birthday to collect you freebie. I went in expecting some eyeshadows they had advertised as the birthday present, but was pleasantly surprised to get a sample of this mascara. I haven’t tried it out yet because I am waiting to use up the mascaras I have open, but I am super excited to because I have heard amazing things.
Sephora– Drunk elephant Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser and Protini polypeptide cream. If you are a beauty insider, you can go into Sephora during your birth month and choose a birthday freebie. It was between the drunk elephant samples or kat von d. I have really wanted to try more drunk elephant, so I was super happy this was available as the birthday freebie.
Tarte– Amazonian clay 12-hour blush in “quirky” and lights, camera, lashes™ 4-in-1 mascara when you join Tarte Rewards. I do really like the blush so far and love the nice coral color. I was actually thinking about buying one of these blushes anyway, so I couldn’t resist this freebie. Once again, I am waiting to open the mascara though.
The Body Shop– On your birthday, the body shop credits $10 to your account. Since they have 40% off on tons of items, I did order a few things, the Make Up Setting Spray and Coconut Oil Hair Shine. You do have to spend at least a dollar, so I got the Mediterranean Almond Milk with Oats Instant Soothing Mask packet and spent a total of $1.82 (with free shipping). The mist is super fine and I am really liking it. I haven’t tried the other two items yet, but they do smell delicious.
So Post– Essie Nail Polish in “Say it ain’t soho”. The last thing wasn’t a special birthday freebie, but I just wanted to mention this nail polish that arrived right around my birthday. I often get free samples from So post, which posts sample links on facebook and instagram, but I was so surprised when I received this full size nail polish! There are a few other places I am able to score free full sized products and I am planning on doing a full post about these when I am able to round up some of the things I received. I don’t currently see any offers by SoPost online, but I will try to post the next time I do.
I hope you enjoyed this post and sign up for some of these rewards programs so you can get some samples on your birthday! Thanks for reading and I hope you have an amazing weekend!
