Holiday shopping discounts abound!

by Bionic Beauty on 26.Nov.2008 · 3 comments

People everywhere are gearing up for the holiday season. And you know me… I’m all about the frugal finds and shopping fun. With this season being more important than ever for families to save a few bucks but still enjoy the season, I’ve gathered up a large list of discounts. If you do your shopping at the appropriate times, you can actually save quite a bit of money!

Check out the deals from some of my favorite brands…
Purely Cosmetics

  • Cyber Monday (December 1, 2008) – Free shipping on all orders, no minimum, and applies for both US & International orders! Redemption code: cybermonday. (Check out my review of Purely Cosmetics if you missed it. I would highly recommend the PC foundation, eyeshadows & the Black Cherry gel eyeliner.).

Spell Cosmetics

  • Holiday Sale – Storewide 40% off of all orders of $25.00 or more. And a free gift choice our your choice (Choose between the Holiday Gloss trio or the Holiday eye shadow trio)!! Runs from Wednesday (November 26) through Monday (December 1). Use code Holiday at checkout. My suggestions: Spell’s Body Gloss (review here) and their amazing loose pigment eye shadows (my look).

e.l.f. Cosmeticself cosmetics

  • Get 75% off on elf cosmetics bags! Limit 10 bags. Not valid on holiday bag collection. Use the code 75OFF
  • Get 50% off all bath & body elf products. Use the code HOLIDAYBATH at checkout.
  • These offers expire pretty quickly, so be sure to shop on Cyber Monday or before.

  • One day CyberMonday Sale. All products will be an additional 10% off their regular discounted price! Free shipping will be available for all orders over $100. No special code needed. Since Beauty Vice is already discount 20 to 40 percent lower than retail, you can see some pretty cool savings.

  • Our friends at Mario Badescu have created a special holiday discount code exclusively for beauty blog readers! The offer is good for 15% off online purchases between December 1st and December 15th, 2008 with the discount code BEAUTYBLOG.

I know I’ll be staying home and away from the crowds on Friday.

Benefit’s Lust Dusters Launched

Lust Dusters by Benefit Cosmetics
Lust Dusters: These loose, shimmery mineral powders were just launched by Benefit Cosmetics. I haven’t tried them as yet. But I wanted to put the word out in case any Bionic readers were looking for something fun to try. The Lust Dusters are “shimmering, loose powders for eyes and face”. When mixed with Benefit’s She Laq (their makeup sealer), the dusters can be used as a liquid eyeliner. Currently 9 shades are available from whites and neutrals to a pop of blue and purple.

Priced at $18 for a sifter jar.
