How I Save Money on Makeup and Beauty Products

Hi everyone, I'm sorry I've been gone for a little while now, I promise I'll be better at posting from now on and not skipping two months at a time :) I had a hectic schedule there for a while but everything's settled down now so you can expect at least a post a week and if I don't post, I give you fill permission to comment angrily demanding me to post. Also on the note of comments, I would love it if you guys would comment anything you would like to see so I can give y'all content that you want to see.
So long tangent aside, I thought I would make a post on how I like to save money on makeup, and well just in life, because who doesn't love saving money on makeup? Also, lets be honest here, buying new makeup (or beauty products in general) can be realllly expensive. So without further ado, here is how I like to save money on makeup.

Tip 1) TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and Nordstrom

So the first tip I have for y'all is to buy all the makeup/beauty products you need from these places. TJ Maxx and Marshalls both sell a lot of high end makeup products for a slightly lower prices, which can be nice, but their real gems are the drugstore/ medium price products. I buy all of my nail polishes exclusively from these stores. The nice thing about them is they have a wide range of colors and brands, not just the ugly colors no one wants. I bought this gorgeous Butter London nail polish from my local TJ Maxx and it was only 2 dollars. 2 DOLLARS. Now Nordstrom is a fantastic place to go for higher end makeup and beauty products. The nice thing about Nordstrom is that they price match everything, so you always get the best deal. I bought a bunch of Batiste from their website for 5 dollars each. Plus they also offer no minimum free shipping and 3 free samples with every beauty order. It's like Sephora but better. Currently, I've got my eye on the Naked on the Run palette that they have for 39 dollars marked down from 54 elsewhere. Also they do a lot of gifts with purchase so be sure to check that out before buying.

Tip 2) Coupons, coupons, coupons

I cannot say it enough, coupons are a girls best friend. Every Sunday paper I've ever had includes a huge pack of coupons and more than 25% of them are for beauty/ makeup products. Coupons almost always work on top of sales and sometimes there can be really high value coupons in the inserts and even online. This brings me to my next point.....

Tip 3) Do your research

Right before I head out of the door to go shopping, I always check for online printable manufacturers coupons, places that are having sales and check my email for any exclusive sales/promotions. 

That's all I have got for you today, If you want to see more posts like this, let me know below!

Again, thanks for your patience, I really appreciate it

Hi there! I'm India, a girl just living on this crazy rollercoaster called life. I tend to think my specialty is in drugstore products but I can dabble in high end sometimes (but my wallet can't)


  1. There's also Ebates! Ebates changed my life, for real, lol! When I receive the check (they actually pay by Paypal now) I get SO excited.

  2. Ebay is also a great place to get makeup for less. The only downside is that you need to be careful because some sellers sell fake MAC and Urban Decay.
