Macy’s Free Shipping On Beauty No Longer Available

As they said it was good while it lasted! Macy’s free shipping on any and all beauty purchases is no longer available and has been changed to free shipping with any $49 purchase. Sad sigh.

Macy’s has been really upping their game in the beauty department and offering many brilliant sales throughout the year on makeup, skincare, and fragrance as well as excellent deals throughout Black Friday and the Holiday season. For about two years now they have also offered free shipping on any beauty purchase big or small. They’ll never a direct contender for Ulta or Sephora but they were a source of excellent deals plus their free shipping did push a lot of people into indulging on their website.

Sadly, they have now done away with free shipping on beauty and it’s not longer and available option which in my opinion will kill some of their sales in this area. I know when Urban Decay would clearance certain items out a lot of people would run to Macy’s website to get them even though they were available on Ulta as well. The free shipping was much more tempting versus reaching Ulta’s threshold free shipping option.

Anyway, I’ll miss it. Sephora has also changed their Flash Shipping for Rouge as well. I do wonder if Nordstrom will start doing the same. From a marketing stand point sometimes you do have the one how some of these stores make any money when they are paying for packing materials as well as shipping. Particularly, when they are doing dumb things like sending multiple shipments or sending shipping just a sample in a box and the order in another!

Fare thee well Macy’s Free Shipping you’ll be missed.

Sephora Stacking Coupon Codes and Combining Promotions

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

Starting today you can stack coupons and combine promotional discounts at Sephora.com. Thank the makeup gods! I grabbed up some of the Reward Bazaar Gift Cards in exchange for some of my Rouge Points back in the Fall and I was hanging on to the gift cards in the hopes of using them during the Sephora 20% Off Sale. Imagine my dismay when I found out I couldn’t combine the 20% Off discount with the gift card. I was rather pissed off about it.

Now MAYBE I can do that! Starting today Sephora has announced on their community forums you’ll start seeing multiple promo code fields. The feature is not yet live but I imagine around 12 PM EST it will be. This is great if you have a few different codes you want to combine on check out.

Sadly, as with all things Sephora does there are some stipulations that haven’t really be revealed yet. According to them this feature is only allowed for certain promo codes and “not all promotions will be combinable and each promotion will have different rules, including whether or not it can be combined with other promotions.”

Considering how crummy Sephora is with their “rules and regulations” I do worry that means those gift card rewards likely won’t be eligible for combining with any other codes. I guess the fact WE MIGHT be able to stack certain promo codes is exciting I just hope it doesn’t come along with too many rules otherwise it’ll be pointless.

Are you excited about the potential of combining promo codes at Sephora.com?

Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder Review & Swatches

I purchased this item and I receive a small commission if you shop using the links in this post.
5 stars out of 5

Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder ($32) is a new loose setting powder available in eight shade selections launched with the brand’s new line of Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Concealer. Since I was purchasing the new concealer I admit I felt compelled to complete the purchase with the Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder even though I’m a pretty faithful fan to my tried and true Ben Nye Banana Powder.

I think I have some sort of weird mentality of, “Oh the concealer would work best if I also get the powder they launched from the same brand!”. I can’t be alone thinking this! Anyone ever feeling that way when shopping makeup or particularly skincare? Got the moisturizer, need the matching serum from the same brand and so on and so fourth. Or maybe I’m alone in my oddball makeup logic.

None the less, somehow, someway, Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Setting Powder ended up in my cart in two shades.
