If there is a place (outside of Sephora and Amazon) that carries an insane amount of high-end beauty brands that deserves your attention, it’s Dermstore. Right now, take 20% off sitewide with the code FRIENDS at checkout. Brands like Kevin Aucoin, La Roche-Posay, and more are included, but a lot of brands aren’t so be sure to check the exclusions list.
Marc Jacobs Beauty makes some pretty stellar products, with a lot of them in my own personal collection. Their lipstick is highly pigmented, as is their nail lacquer. And with 20% off with the code MJBFAM you can stock up on some staple beauty products.
I recently bought the Magic Marc’er Liquid Eyeliner and let me tell you, this thing is a game-changer. I accidentally fell asleep with it on and it was still practically perfect the next day. And I mean, for $24, it’d better be. I also own the Feather Noir mascara, which is great for everyday makeup and bottom lashes.
The Big Sales
Right now, GAP has a huge sale where everything is discounted up to 60%, which is great, sure. But they’re throwing in an additional 40% off with the code MORE. The exclusions list is long (as usual), and it does include denim this time around, but there are a ton of majorly marked down pairs that you won’t even need the extra discount to grab for cheap.
7 For All Mankind is the kind of brand you pick up off the rack, love, see the price, and quietly put it back. Their prices can be a bit steep, so you should take advantage of this huge sale at Nordstrom Rack. All 7 For All Mankind denim is marked down to under $100, with most ringing it at a more-easily-digestible $80.
TOMS is no longer just the purveyor of canvas slip-ons. They have a ton of options for basically every kind of shoe person, from sneakers, to dress shoes, to sandals, and yes, boots. Use the code BOOTS25 at checkout and take 25% off boots for men and women, so you can be a little more weather appropriate in the coming months.
Fall is here and ASOS wants to make sure your wardrobe is prepared. With up to 70% off a unbelievable amount styles to help get you ready for the new season, it’s going to be hard to let your shopping bag stay empty. There’s almost 300 pages of JUST DRESSES, so it’s unlikely you won’t find anything.
Pack your stuff in a new Timbuk2 bag. Get 30% off select styles, plus free shipping, when you use code T24LIFE, which include the ever-popular Commute and Command Bags, and make sure your commute is packed well. There’s everything from one of your favorite carry-ons to your favorite laptop bags.
Bralettes are a lazy girl’s best friend when it comes to being comfy and covered. Aerie is having a $15 bralette sale, in basically every style you could think of. With most of them priced in the $25-$30 range, that means you’re getting them basically half price. I recommend stocking up on a couple different styles.
Celebrate J.Crew Factory’s 5th birthday (it seems longer than five years) with an extra 50% off their entire clearance section. Use the code BIGFIVE and take an extra 50% off all clearance items, which is insane seeing as practically everything is already marked down under $100. Maybe hold off on cleaning out your closet until after this sale is over.
Need Supply, the Richmond, VA shop for everything trendy and cool, is having a sweet sale. Right now, they’re giving you 20% off everything thanks to their Friends & Family sale. Stock up on minimalist staples, or some really great beauty steals, by using the code FAMANDFREN at checkout.
Amazon’s having a one day fire sale (sorry, sorry) on Zippo lighters, lighter fluid, and more, with the iconic lighter starting at just $7, with tons of varieties available.
In addition to the lighters though, you should also take note of Zippo’s hand warmers, now that winter is just around the corner. I own one of these, and it’s awesome. You just fill it with lighter fluid, light the wick, put it in the included bag, and it’ll stay nice and toasty for hours on end.
There’s no shortage of varieties available, so go pick your favorite before this deal burns out.
At $8 per month (for Prime members), Amazon Music Unlimited was already more affordable than Spotify Premium or Apple Music, but Amazon’s sweetening the pot right now with a $5 Amazon.com credit when you sign up for a free trial with promo code MUSIC5.
A similar deal was briefly available a couple of weeks ago with a $10 credit, but if you missed out on that one, this is still basically free money, considering you can spend it on anything shipped and sold by Amazon directly. You can even cancel the 30 day trial before you pay up, and you’ll still get to keep the credit. Just note that this promotion is only for new Amazon Music Unlimited subscribers.
Amazon is offering very hot discounts on Kenmore window unit air conditioners today. Even if it collects dust until next summer, it’s worth it - all window units included are legitimately around 50% off their usual prices.
These units are smart units, meaning, like most new home accessories these days, you can download an app and control the temperature and set a schedule with your phone. They’re even Alexa enabled if you have one of those.
The different AC units vary by BTUs and room size so scroll down on a product page and check the table if you’re unsure which one to buy.
Anker’s HomeVac Duo vacuum transforms from handheld to upright, has the impressive runtime you’d expect from the brand that makes your favorite battery packs, a washable HEPA filter, and a great warranty. That’s quite a package for $80 (or $83 for certain colors), the best price we’ve ever seen.
This was Anker’s first foray into cleaning products, and reviewers seem to love it so far. It’ll run for 24 minutes on a charge at full power, or an hour in eco mode, which should be sufficient for most average-sized homes. The standout feature though is definitely the detachable hand vac, which lets you clean furniture, shelves, and even your car with ease.
If you ever make tacos at home, do yourself a favor and pick up some of these metal taco holders for just $6 each. If you use them as shown in the picture above, they’ll hold two tacos, but flip them over and <audience gasps> they hold three tacos!
You already know that packing cubes can make traveling slightly less terrible (though they won’t stop United from beating your ass), but Gonex’s take on the product category includes a second zipper and extra material, allowing them to expand while you’re packing, and compress when it’s time to stuff everything in to your carry-on. For a limited time, get a set of three in the color of your choice for $13 with promo code AY9S85YS.
Without an instant read thermometer, you can waste a lot of oven heat with the door open as it slowly ticks up to finally settle on the correct temperature after about a minute or so. But with an instant read, like this Dr. Meter Meat Thermometer, the thermometer only spend 4-5 seconds calculating, letting you get back to cooking without too much energy waste.
In what I assume is recompense for all the horrible movies we’ve been subjected to recently (Wonder Woman excluded), a whole bunch of digital DC comics are free right now on Amazon. There’s no catch, no membership requirement, and no limit to how many you can download.
Google Home got a couple of new siblings last week, but the original remains unchanged, and well worth today’s $90 deal on Rakuten. Just be sure you’re logged into a free Rakuten account, and use promo code ALT18 at checkout to save big.
Saliva-based ancestry DNA tests probably won’t tell you anything profound, but they’re fun, and make great gifts, so you may want to pick one for $79.
