Birthday Beauty Deals

Happy Birthday!  

Many beauty retailers have Birthday Beauty Deals in the form of free birthday gifts and birthday gifts with purchase. My favorites are the retailers that offer birthday beauty gifts without a purchase, but I do not mind treating myself and getting a bonus beauty birthday gift when the retailer requires a purchase.  I’ve compiled a list of all the birthday beauty offers I’ve received. Most of the promo codes offer gifts with purchase, but the coupons or links for gifts you pick up in-store are usually freebies (no purchase required). Some of the offers use generic promo codes but others are unique and not activated until around your birthday. It is best to create an account and enter your birthdate before your actual birthday to take advantage of the most deals. Subscribe to emails to trigger the offers. Remember to check the offer page on covered retailers (linked below) before shopping, because the general offer(s) might be better than the birthday offer. Many of these offers do not appear until your actual birthday, so try not to spend your entire birthday budget in advance.

My birthday is in March, so it already passed. Any entry below without a 2019 update either did not have an offer this year or I just did not receive it. If I do not get an offer again next year, I will remove them from the list. The good news is while the offer may vary, there is a good chance that retailer will have a birthday offer if it had one in the previous year. I remove any retailer that sends me an offer one year but not the next, so the list is ever-changing. Offers can change from year to year or even throughout the year, but some remain the same or close to the previous offer.

  1. Awesome. I will not update the offers for 2017 until after I receive mine in March, but I will leave your comment up for anyone with an earlier birthday. Happy belated birthday.

  2. I am on the MAC free membership. Even though I did not write an article (was on a blogging break most of last year), I redeemed the anniversary gift. My anniversary has not come for 2018 yet so I can only confirm it was valid through 2017. I update all of the gifts when I receive the new offer or can confirm the offer no longer exists.

  3. When I signed up for an account with NARS, there was nowhere to put in my birthday. Do you know if they still do this promotion? thanks

  4. I just logged into my account, and it looks like my birthday has been removed. Unless I receive a new offer this year, I assume NARS no longer offers birthday gifts. Thanks for the heads up. I will remove it from the list.

  5. I’ve never purchased directly from Smashbox so I am unsure what its birthday offer is. It has actually been a couple of years since I even purchased a Smashbox item from Ulta or Sephora but those new Vlada Highlighters are tempting me.

  6. I have been collecting my birthday coupons since my birthday is later this month:

    I was disappointed to only get 50 pts from Kohl’s (100 pts = $5) and not a $5 coupon like previous years…

    I didn’t see the CVS BeatyClub listed above. It used to be a $3 coupon to use as you wish, but this year CVS sent a birthday coupon for a free Pop-arazzi nail polish ($3 value).

    As for Ulta, this year and last, I got my birthday email on the 1st of the month, not the 15th (b-day is 1/25). I wasn’t excited about the two Ulta eye shadows so I asked nicely and they still had some of the Lancome mascaras left from last quarter, so I got that instead — which made me MUCH HAPPIER! 🙂

  7. Most of the offers above are from 2018, because my birthday is not until March. That means I only got 100 points in 2018 from Kohl’s. I do not think I got an offer from CVS in 2018 (but will list a 2019 offer if I get one). It has been a while since I shopped there. My husband shops there all the time, but only in person.

    Offers coming on the 15th for the second half of the month was supposed to be new to Ulta in 2019 according to the Ulta employee I spoke with in December, so that was not listed in the 2018 article (Ulta is one of the few I’ve updated for 2019 since I already know the gift). You are the second person with a birthday in the second half of January who already received her offer. I will update the article to reflect that.
