I love when Ulta proceeds to give me 20% Off my total order and than yanks the carpet right out from under me my adding a great big exclusion list.
Oh hai you can has 20% off but………………..!
No Urban Decay, No Smashbox, No Amazing Cosmetics, No Bare Escentuals, No Bourjois, No Cargo….oh wait…I know..ABSOLUTELY no premium brands.
K, Happy Shopping Muse.
So what the heck am I supposed to buy now? It’s kinda offering me a lick of the ice cream but telling me not to swallow.
If you wants it, 20% Off at Ulta using promo code 24103 just remember the big exclusion list.
As for this Muse…..
DO NOT WANT!
I’m a long time fan of Wylde Ivy so I thought I’d do a little Beauty Discovery post about them as I think they have some great items that could make super gift ideas.
Check it after the jump!
What’s news today? My Tuesday is flowing along quite nicely today. I just got some nice news about a review I did which will be popping up somewhere shortly, kinda chuffed properly about that. Aside from that it’s the normal hum-drum Tuesday! Can’t wait for T-Day so I can stuff myself full of turkey…ok that was so a lie…I HATE turkey haha but I’ll dig into everything else thanks very much.
I was planning to do my Gift Guides after Thanksgiving actually but more and more people have e-mailed asking after them so I figure this means everyone is in full gift getting mode.
Today I’m covering cheap Christmas gifts. This is my guide to getting some great steals and deals on makeup, skincare, and more, all with really lower price tags so you can have a little spare change after the Holidays to indulge in all those semi-annual sales!
Christmas is on sale this year!
Jump for it!
It’s so very early to worry about the gift giving season isn’t it? But I really want to get a jump start on Gift Giving Guides this year and one particular guide that REALLY needs an extra early preview is my Unique Guide to Gift Giving via Etailers.
I love Etailers ummm wait scratch that….I’m addicted to Etailers. What are Etailers? Etailers are basically smaller shops or homegrowns as I refer to them. It’s normally run by a single person sometimes two and products are handmade in most cases from scratch. These products include bath and body goodies, perfumes, perfume oils, and in some cases even cosmetics. I love purchasing gifts from Etailers because it makes the gift giving experience really unique and special because seriously some of these items just can’t be purchased in any store or shop you’d find at the mall.
I’m also starting this guide a little earlier because many of these shops are popular and they sometimes have a lead shipping time which takes anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks (or more) to get your items since they are being freshly made. I’ve personally shopped from these stores myself however I can’t vouch for their shipping time so please if you’re gifting someone do take the shipping time into consideration prior to ordering. Again, this is why this particular gift guide is going up early.
In other news…
I’ll be doing other gift guides over the next month and into December. Hopefully you’ll find each of these guides a helpful way to discover some great presents for friends and family. If you have an idea for a particular guide I’d love to hear it, do comment and share.

The Muse shops ASOS way too much for her good health. This UK shop carries a variety of beauty brands not available in the US such as B Never (recent addition), Bourjois Paris, Lord and Berry, and many more!
Normal shipping costs from the site to the US is pretty high but the good news is now they have a flat rate shipping deal for $6 bucks to the US! w00t! Best news ever! I couldn’t be happier as I now I can stop asking friends in the UK to haul me goods from Bourjois Paris and the likes and just order them myself from the site for an extremely low airmail cost.
This will be ideal for any of you lemming the new Bourjois Paris Smoky Eye Palettes as you can easily score them with the shipping deal.
Do you shop ASOS?
