Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Urban Decay Afterglow 8 Hour Powder Blush, Free 24 Piece Beauty Bag Platinum Perk, Another Best of Becca Set, and More With a 2000 Point Redemption

See Platinum GWP Bag Offers for 2018.

View detailed instructions on Earning and Redeeming Points at Ulta.

The Fall 21 Days of Beauty is in full swing. Read my overview for tips on the sale. Ulta offered a 24 piece Beauty Bag as a Platinum Perk with a $125 purchase. This is not a common offer during a major promotion, like the Days of Beauty. These monster bags are more common when Ulta actually needs to push us into an order. There is no expiration date listed on this offer, so it is available while supplies last. I had a few (dreaded full price) items I’ve been waiting to purchase. Since I wanted to get this bag, I decided to get them with some steals I was going to get anyway. It also helps that I redeemed 2000 points for a $125 credit, so I did not pay full price on anything.

Nordstrom Lunar New Year Gift With Purchase and Renew Mask Sample Gift

2016 marks the Year of the Monkey. As a Monkey, I wanted to collect some pieces. This is the first time I’ve been interested in makeup during my year. Nordstrom carries a couple of pieces I want, but I traded for one of them. The item I purchased here, while technically for The Year of The Monkey, does not have an actual monkey on it. I love the beautiful, limited edition gold packaging though. My desire to purchase something that represents the Chinese Zodiac happened to coincide with the Lunar New Year. To celebrate the switch, Nordstrom offered a special gift with purchase I was able to partake in as well.

Empties November 2015

When the new month starts, I toss everything I finished the previous month. I give a mini review of each item. Items I love are usually repurchased, so some of them appear in the Empties Series a lot. If I like or am indifferent to an item, I will not rush out to repurchase, but I would be willing to use or try it again. Items that are not for me may not always be empty. Generally, I finish them but do not use them again in the future. If they’re really awful and new samples find their way to me, I give them to someone else unopened. For items I really love, I do a separate product spotlight to discuss them in more detail.

Get Free Beauty Samples Volume Three

Nothing beats completely free offers. Sometimes, there really is no catch to obtaining free items. You just have to know where to look and how to find them. Welcome to the third installment of items I’ve received for free. Past free sample articles feature different freebies. The offers at times come in emails. Sometimes, you will see them on a blog or the direct brand’s website. Other times, you can find free offers on social media or even through snail mail. My Free Samples Page provides more information on sample opportunities. Offers can at times come by phone, but I never answer numbers I do not recognize. I will miss out on any that come that way.

I will always list general free items I am aware of on the front page of this site.  Sites I trust for free items are listed here if you want to look into any of them.

FabuFinds: Product Spotlight February 2015

Every month, I review my empty products.  If you missed this month’s empties, you can find them here.  Some products are obviously miserable, and I do not want to think about them again.  Others are so wonderful and seem like they’re made just for me.  Those are FabuFinds, and I generally like to devote a little more time to discussing them.  They are items I have repurchased and will continue to repurchase even at full price if I could not find a good promo code.

Of everything I used in February 2015, there were only three I consider FabuFinds.  Two already exist in my stash, and the other one will once I’ve used the samples I own of it.  Three is one less than last month, but finding products that are just right for you is a task.  If you find even one a month, it makes your never-ending quest to find them worth it.

February 2015 Empties

It’s the beginning of the month. That means it is time to review empties.  Okay, these empties are from February, but I will eventually get caught up and have more timely reviews.  This was actually a rough month for me, so looking over the items that got me through it is actually a little weirdly satisfying.  Have you tried any of these items?  What are your thoughts on them?

I will give you a mini review on each item. I’ll tell you the items I love and will repurchase. If I like or am indifferent to an item, I will not rush out to repurchase, but I would be willing to use or try it again. Lastly, I will present the items that are not for me. Generally, I will not use these any more in the future. If they’re really awful to me, I always hope I can find someone else who may actually like them. Thus, I will try to find someone to give duplicates to. For the items that I really love, I will do a separate product spotlight on them at some point to discuss them in more detail.
