Holiday Gift Help: More Discounts and Deals

Thursday, December 18th, 2008 | Fragrance, General, Makeup, Sales, Stores | Comments Off

Bobbi Brown Cosmetics is currently offering 25% off their Holiday Collection online (until January 3, 2009), and the discount is automatically applied at checkout.  While the site doesn’t make it easy to figure out what qualifies as their “Holiday Collection,” this is a great discount for Bobbi Brown makeup for you or for someone you like a lot!

Also, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics is offering free 2nd-day shipping until December 20, 2008 (midnight ET) with code 2DAY.

Laura Mercier Holiday items are now 25% off with code HOL25 until January 10, 2009.

Neiman Marcus is offering free 2-day delivery at any price on most items with promo code NMFAST (until December 19, 2008 at 11:59pm CT).  Neiman Marcus is currently offering special online holiday sales on many items too.  The site even says you can “earn an NM Gift Card” with the 2-day free shipping, but further details were not provided.

Vincent Longo Makeup 30% Off at Sephora!

Monday, December 8th, 2008 | General, Makeup, Sales, Stores | Comments Off

I remember back when Sephora started phasing out one of my favorite cosmetics brands, Becca.  Sephora placed Becca products on sale at a great discount until they all sold out and disappeared forever from Sephora shelves.

Now, Sephora is similarly phasing out the Vincent Longo makeup line, and Vincent Longo products are currently on sale for 30% off, both in-store and online at

Vincent Longo products range from innovative creme-to-powder products with patented technology (Water Canvas line) to gel-stain lip and cheek tints.  The line even includes some sparkly (Wet Diamond) eye shadows for evenings out.

Even at 30% off, Vincent Longo products may not be cheap by any standards, but some products are starting to sell out already.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

(By the way, if Sephora doesn’t have what you’re looking for, is offering 25% off orders over $75 until Dec. 24, 2008)

Happy Shopping! from Meilily

Meilily Sale Alert:  Bliss

Meilily Sale Alert: Bliss

Just wanted to let you know about a very special Bliss sale going on at

The Bliss Employee Sale is going on right now for a limited time, and there have been a bunch of really nice, high-end cosmetics, skincare, and general beauty products on sale at huge discounts (up to 70% off).  Products have been selling out rather quickly during this sale, but there have been great deals on products ranging from Laura Mercier and Sue Devitt makeup to MBT shoes and Wolford lingerie.  Recently, Bliss even added more products to their Employee Sale online.

This is a great time to buy high-end products you normally covet but cannot afford.  [Just remember, the Bliss return policy does not seem to allow returns on sale items.]

Get Discounts for Recycling Empty Tarte Cosmetics Packaging!

Friday, November 7th, 2008 | General, Makeup, Sales, Stores | 3 Comments

Tarte Customer Recycling Incentive Discount

Meilily Deal Tip: Tarte Customer Recycling Incentive Discount

Recycling + Shopping Discounts = Good!

Tarte Cosmetics has begun offering their customers incentives to recycle their empty Tarte product packaging.  Tarte’s customer recycling incentive program offers various discounts off of future purchases when customers send back their empty bottles, tubes, or tins of Tarte products.

Currently the Tarte recycling incentive applies only to returns of packaging from certain products, but that is understandable as only certain material is recyclable.  Though the recycling discounts are currently limited to future purchases from Tarte of a similar product type, the discounts will definitely help motivate me to send in my tube of Tarte Smooth Operator SPF 20 Foundation once it is empty.  Since Smooth Operator is one of my favorite foundations (in Incognito), and since I already plan on repurchasing more of it, the Tarte recycling discount is like the cherry on the cupcake.  I just have to remember to do it!

Meilily's Nordstrom Estee Lauder Gift with Purchase 2008

Meilily's Nordstrom Estee Lauder Gift with Purchase '08

I have never really been tempted by Estee Lauder skincare or cosmetics, but the current Nordstrom Estee Lauder gift with purchase offer really made me pay attention.  Also, a study, recently mentioned in Allure magazine, wherein Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Serum Concentrate was shown to help prevent UV damage caught my attention too.

So, in the name of scientific investigation I went to Nordstrom and picked up the current Estee Lauder gift with purchase. Read on for shopping strategies and product photos.  › Continue reading

Amazing Estee Lauder Gift at Nordstrom

Thursday, October 30th, 2008 | Fragrance, Free Stuff, Makeup, Sales, Stores | 2 Comments

Last Days!  Nordstrom Estee Lauder Gift with Purchase

If you are considering purchasing or trying anything from Estee Lauder anytime in the near future, this looks like a great time to buy.

Between October 15, 2008 and November 2, 2008, Nordstrom is offering a really nice and customizable gift with purchase package that includes 7 skincare and beauty items along with a multicolor cosmetic bag. It is truly a “package,” because it contains several non-filler gift items that you can pick and choose from yourself.  This current offer is one of the best gift with purchase packages I have seen from Estee Lauder, and the minimum purchase of $39.50 is pretty manageable.  › Continue reading
