NEW Beauty Social Network- Beautypical + Huda Beauty Giveaway!

I'm so proud to announce a new way to share our love of beauty products...Beautypical.com! I was heavily involved in the development of this site and have been beta testing it for a few weeks and I'm really excited about all of the features.

In a nutshell, here's what you can do on the site:

1. Submit your favorite YouTube videos...the ones you've found to be most helpful. YouTube is such a huge place that many smaller YouTubers that are producing great content are getting buried in the search results and not shown due to the new algorithm. You can rate the videos that are submitted to the Beautypical site and the best, most highly rated videos will rise to the top.

2. Submit and view Beauty Deals... all the freshest coupon codes and beauty deals. No more wading through coupon sites for the beauty stuff, or following multiple accounts on Instagram. This is all in one place.

3. Swatches...A huge gallery of makeup swatches that's searchable by brand or product name. Rate the ones you like the best to let the most helpful, most true-to-life swatches rise to the top of the results.

4. Spotted...This category was one of my additions to the site and is kind of an ode to Nouveau Cheap (I really miss her site and all the deals and product sightings!). Here, you can submit new product sightings, both online and in-store. Also, the in-store sighting has a map option so you can specify exactly which location you found the product in, so that people who live locally to you know which store to visit (whether it's CVS, Rite Aid, Sephora, etc.).

5. Forum...this is the place to talk with other members of the site and discuss new products launches, share beauty tips, ask beauty-related questions, share your looks, and more.

Users can also gain "Beautypical Credit" every time they share something on the site, and also when their content gets rated positively. Every week there are challenges that you can meet and the person with the most credit will win something (Ulta/Sephora gift cards, high-end palettes, etc).


I'm so excited to share the site with you and I hope that you'll sign up and play with everything! This week, they're giving away a Huda Beauty Desert Dusk palette (worth $65 to one person at random who signs up for the site and submits at least one deal, swatch, or video).

Up To 70% Off At Tarte...Today Only!

There are some crazy-good deals on the Tarte website today, including the Clay Play Face Shaping Palette for only $18!!! I'm crying right now since I just bought it at full price recently!

I highly recommend it though, if you love neutral palettes. I wasn't attracted to it at first but now that I have it, it's one of those palettes that's sooo good for everyday, even if it seems boring.

Available today only at TarteCosmetics.com

Tarte Mascara Monday- ALL Full Sizes $10

This week, Tarte Cosmetics is celebrating their 17th birthday with 7 surprises and one of them is going to be 25% off Shape Tape (we don't know which day yet)!

Today, all full-sized mascaras are only $10 with code MascaraMonday...it's a great time to stock up on your faves! Especially if you're already planning to order the Tartelette Toasted palette.

Tartelette Toasted Palette Now Available!


The Tartelette Toasted Palette is now available on TarteCosmetics.com ($45). The Tartelette in Bloom is my favorite palette ever so I ended up getting this one too. It reminds me of a toned-down Naked Heat palette with more light, wearable shades (I found the Naked Heat to be very dark overall).

Will you be getting this one?

Available now at TarteCosmetics.com

Faves Under $5

Drugstore prices have definitely been climbing lately but there are still some hidden gems under $5 that (in my opinion) can even compete with higher end brands!
Today's video is all about my favorite concealer, blush, bronzer, highlighters, contour, eyeshadows, and lipsticks...and everything is under $5. 

Recent Disappointing Products

I usually keep things pretty positive around here and talk about products I love (since it's more fun that way), but I also recognize the need for balance, and that you guys also need to hear about products that didn't work out for me. So my latest video on YouTube is all about products I've tried recently that were disappointing in one way or another: 

I'd love to hear your thoughts! :) 

Sephora 10 Years of Beauty Insider Freebies + Haul


If you have any shopping to do at Sephora, now's a great time to do it, because they're celebrating 10 Years of their Beauty Insider program with great new freebies with any $25 order. Today's freebie is the new IT Cosmetics Secret Sauce, which I've been dying to try ever since I put some on the back of my hand in-store and it transformed from dry and flaky to soft and supple right before my eyes.
The Verb Ghost Prep hair serum is also still available from yesterday's deal.

Speaking of Verb, I actually ordered their Ghost Oil today, since I've heard awesome things about it (especially that it doesn't weigh your hair down). I also picked up the new Clinique Sweet As Honey Eyeshadow Palette, since the deep berry shades were really speaking to me. I don't have another palette like it and I think it'll be great for Fall/Winter looks! Finally, I also grabbed one of the Tarte Color Splash Lipsticks in the shade Siesta because it's my favorite lipstick formula of all time...moisturizing and smoothing, super lightweight, and full coverage.

Here's a look at my cart from today:

So head on over to Sephora.com before this latest freebie is gone (it's only available online). What will you be picking up?
