If you have to buy it, get the best deal!
Department stores have a lot of sales. Beauty is typically excluded from most department store sales so I really enjoy sales where beauty gets a discount, too. There are some exclusions (scroll down for that list) but even a lot of sale priced cosmetics get discounted with the promo code VIP. All beauty products ship free so adding cosmetics to your purchase allows you to bypass the $99 free shipping minimum. The sale runs from 03/18/18 through 03/25/18. It also includes a lot of designers that rarely go on sale, which is perfect for anyone looking to spruce up their spring wardrobes.
My sister and I were just talking about how my Dad used to dress us up really fancy for Easter. That is a tradition I never really carried onto my kids, but I will take a look to see what they have. I love what these two are wearing.
