Tarte Friends and Family Sale: 30% Off Everything

The Tarte Friends and Family Sale launched this morning, and you can take 30% off your entire purchase! 30% is REALLY good when it comes to the world of cosmetics. Some of the best friends and family sales usually only offer a 20% discount, so getting 30% from Tarte is pretty awesome!

Tarte Coupon: Use code “FANDF” at checkout to receive 30% off your entire Tarte purchase. This coupon is valid through August 4, 2014. Shipping is free on all $40+ purchases.

Lipsurgence Skintuitive Lip Tint

I haven’t tried many Tarte products (which I feel like I mention every time I talk about Tarte) but I have tried LipSurgence Skintuitive Lip Tint. There’s something in this product so that it “reacts” with your body chemistry to create a product that’s all your own. One of the first beauty products I ever purchased was a similar product from Smashbox, so I felt like I had to pick up this product to see how it compared. LipSurgence Skintuitive Lip Tint costs $24 normally, or $16.80 after the discount is applied.

12 Piece Amazonian Clay Eyeliner Set

Y’all know how much I love eyeliner and this 12 Piece Amazonian Clay Eyeliner Set looks amazing! The price is actually really good, too! At $25 normally, that breaks down to just over $2 per eyeliner, but after the 30% discount is applied the price drops to $17.50, or $1.45 per eyeliner!

Tarte Lights Camera Flashes Mascara

You know, I actually have Tarte Lights, Camera Flashes Mascara… I’ll have to be sure to try it by the next time I write about Tarte! Normally $23, it’s $16.10 after the discount is applied.

Treat Yourself: Coop’s Handmade All-Natural Hot Fudge

Coop's Handmade Hot Fudge

Blake Lively’s new website, Preserve, launched last week and I took a quick peek. I can’t say I was particularly interested in the content (or could understand why things are written in such a… flowery?… manner), and I spent the bulk of my visit scoping out the “Shop” section of the site.

Literally the first thing that caught my eye was Coop’s All Natural Hot Fudge, which they were selling for $10.50. Apparently this hot fudge is made without corn syrup or preservatives. It’s gluten-free and kosher, family-owned, and made in the U.S.A. What really sold me though is the packaging. I love that it looks like fudge is dripping over the container.

While I was tempted to purchase this from Preserve, I’m glad I waited because it’s currently on sale at my favorite site of the moment, Abe’s Market. Abe’s sells Coop’s Handmade Hot Fudge for $10.99, but you can currently get 20% off any purchase with code “ICECREAM”. Plus, shipping is free on all orders, which means this can be yours for around $8.79 (not counting tax).

I’m sure this would be delicious over ice cream, but I’m not going to lie. I plan on eating this right out of the jar. :)

Here’s What You Can Get for $15 or Less at Downeast Basics Today

When I became the Budget Style Expert at I joked to my parents that I had officially carved out a career for myself as a professional shopper. I suppose I was only half kidding because I actually do spend the majority of each day engaging in online window shopping and exploring stores both new and old. That said, I occasionally stumble across new stores and think to myself, “how could I have not known this existed?!”

That’s exactly what happened a couple of weeks ago when I found Downeast Basics. Downeast Basics has been around since at least 2012 and they have quite a few storefronts on the west coast. I cannot yet speak to the quality of items found here, but I have been more than impressed with their selection of styles (primarily basics) and their low price points. Sizing seems to run from XXS-XXL on most items, but of course I don’t know how that translates.

The prices are even better at the moment because you can currently take an additional 40% off all Downeast Basics Clearance Items!

Downeast Basics Coupon: Use code “YOLO40″ at checkout to receive an additional 40% off all Downeast Basics Clearance Items. (I did a double take when I saw this coupon code yesterday. Despite YOLO, I swear that most of the styles are appropriate for women of all ages.) This coupon is valid through August 3, 2014.

Here are just a few of the items I spotted in the clearance sale that cost less than $15 after the 40% discount is applied:
