The Estée Edit was Estée Lauder’s well-intentioned attempt to get the millennial beauty addicts thinking less about their mothers when buying the brand (Kendall Jenner as a brand ambassador can only do so much). If you wanted to try out some stuff from the collection, Sephora has a bunch on sale right now.
Tarte Cosmetics is one of those brands that is always in my makeup bag. Right now, grab a bunch of their top-selling products for less while they’re on sale at Sephora. Tarteist Lip Pant, Amazonian Clay foundation, and more are included.
THE BIG SALEs
Take your mind off the status of the world around you and go climb a mountain. And if you need to replace your hiking shoes, or just need an excuse to get another pair, Amazon’s one-day, up to 40% off sale on select hiking shoes is your excuse. Boots and shoes from Salamon, Merrell, and more are all included in the sale, but this deal only lasts until the wolf howls at midnight.
Be prepared for the upcoming season with Uniqlo’s Memorial Day Sale. Get tees for $6, shorts for $20, and a couple swim suits thrown in there as well. Both men’s and women’s styles are included, but these will go fast, so you’d better stock up now.
Nordstrom has two large sales each year: The Anniversary Sale and The Half-Yearly Sale. Well, today is about halfway through the year, so Nordstrom is taking up to 40% off a boatload of styles. It’ll take time to look through all the stuff, so maybe pencil it in as a meeting at work or something.
There’s no better time to give Urban Outfitters a second look than when they mark down practically everything up to 50% off. Women’s styles, men’s styles, even apartment and home decor, all discounted for the long weekend. Kick your feet up and enjoy it.
Memorial Day is basically the unofficial start of summer, so it’s time to prepare now. Amazon is marking down a ton of Speedo styles (and not just the banana hammocks) to as low as $10, for men, women, and kids. If you have a beach trip planned for this weekend, or any time this summer, this is where you want to stock up.
Net-a-Porter is the place to shop for designer clothing without being looked at funny. And with their huge sale going on right now, you may actually be able to afford something without refinancing your mortgage or selling your first born. Get up to 50% off clothes, shoes, bags, and more, to make you feel better about how this year will be.
If you’ve been using the crappy weather as an excuse not to go for a run, you’re SOL. Amazon is right there with you, marking down select styles from Mission Apparel so you can get outside, even if it’s just for a nice, brisk walk to the deli for a sandwich.
Alright, this is just smart. This rolling pin features a removable ring system that allows you to roll out dough to a specific and consistent thickness, and at $12, it’s never been cheaper.
At $82 (with promo code 5Z7N427L), this is the most affordable sous-vide circulator we’ve ever seen. And while it doesn’t come from a brand you’ve heard of like Anova or Instant Pot, it does seem to have some pretty solid reviews.
If you aren’t familiar with sous-vide, Lifehacker has a great explainer of the process here. Spoiler alert: it’s incredible easy, and the results are perfect every time.
If you’ve ever spent more than 5 seconds sorting through your mismatched food containers to find the right lid, it’s time to throw them all out and upgrade to the uber-popular Rubbermaid Easy Find Lid system.
These containers come in six different sizes, and yet you only have to deal with three different lids, making it much easier to find the right one. The 42 piece set is on sale for $20 today on Amazon. We’ve seen better prices in the past, but this set has been selling for around $24 pretty consistently this year, so you’re saving about $4.
The Echo Dot is probably the best smart home device ever made, and if you’ve been waiting for a deal to scatter them all around your home, Amazon’s passing them out for just $40, today only. Father’s Day is on the horizon, and these make great gifts for nearly everyone.
And in case you missed it earlier this week, refurbs are also marked down to $38 right now, if you really want to pinch your pennies.
The past year or so has seen a welcome deluge of Wi-Fi router innovation, and Portal seems to be one of the best newcomers in the space, particularly for smaller dwellings in congested, urban environments.
Portal includes app-based configuration, nine internal antennas, and mesh capabilities if you buy more than one...table stakes these days for a good router. But while almost all home Wi-Fi routers limit you to a small number of public channels over 5GHz, Portal also opens up four “DFS” channels that are typically reserved for military use and commercial radar.
The law allows home routers to use these DFS channels, but they must shift off of them for a set amount of time whenever they detect active radar to avoid interference. Portal does just this, and moves all of your devices off of the busy channel in the background automatically, and shifts them back on when it’s safe. That means that most of the time, these channels are practically empty, so you won’t have to worry about interference from your neighbors’ Wi-Fi networks. This Digital Trends review has a thorough explanation of the technology, if you’re curious.
Portal retails for $200, and has sold for around $150 for the last few months, but for a limited time, you can try it out for $126 with promo code KINJAWIN. Shep bought this thing earlier this year, and absolutely loves it.
