If you have to buy it, get the best deal!
If you have to buy it, get the best deal. A low price is not always a good deal, and a high price is not always a deal breaker. I share deals and reviews for all beauty products from low to high-end. Most reviews come from items I purchase myself. All beauty products sent for consideration get reviewed, and I will at times review other items. Reviews will always reflect my opinion, so I will not accept products unless this is understood.
I publish new articles once a day, but I will post twice if a time-sensitive deal pops up or nothing during breaks. Content across the site is constantly updated. Use the search bar or drop down menu in the right column for articles on a specific topic.
I cannot always try things by the time I publish, so the article may initially only go over the deal and have swatches. To fully evaluate deals, articles get edited with reviews of products and pictures of me wearing color items once I try them. If an article was recently edited, the reason for the edit is below next to the link for the article.
Reviews are the best way to know if something is a good deal or not. I will always mention when I receive something free, but getting something free will not affect my review. My detailed reviews and retailer pages cover: program descriptions, offers, promo codes, looks, swatches, tips, deal breakdowns, hits, misses, and more. Pictures will never do all of my talking. Deal discoveries and articles include reviews of all products I’ve tried unless I finish them quickly. If I finish something quickly, the review may only appear in Fabufinds or Finished Products articles. Everything I’ve tried gets reviewed, so you will know whether I still like the “deal” once I’ve used the item. Type the product name into the search bar to see if I’ve reviewed or discussed it in a place other than the haul article.
Some items are really available for no charge at all. I only list ones I’ve tested and/or received. If I am unsure an offer is legit, I will not list it.
-My Free Samples page always has a general listing of sites.

Expired offers get removed when I update. Remember to try any offer not yet updated, because some offers get extended or recycled. If I am missing any great offers, please let me know. Thanks in advance!
If you’re shopping online, participating in multiple Pay-to-Shop Programs can help maximize your deal by giving you access to more: discount codes, retailers, percentages of cash back, bonus offers, and more.
Subscription Boxes are a wonderful way to get great deals if you like trying new things, but you should avoid them if you already know exactly what you like. It’s only a good deal if you’re using the items. Find subscriptions that appeal to you.
Large offers from The Big Three are almost always available, so I do not list small offers.
From completely free items to special birthday gifts with purchase, a lot of retailers have birthday offers, so remember to give your birthdate when you register.
Generals tips on getting the best deal get edited when I discover something new. I also edit my detailed lists for specific retailers, including: Sephora, Ulta, Julep, and Birchbox. The idea is putting everything you need to know in one place, so you know how to approach each purchase.
Only recent offers are below. The individual deal pages (linked below and in the right column) include: these offers, older offers, ongoing promotions, recycling promotions, program descriptions, important tips, free shipping minimums, sample offers, historical promotion data, links to articles I’ve written, and more. Pages get updated by reader demand, so popular retailers are more up to date.
