Beauty.com is having some amazing gift with purchases right now–which are great to give as gifts or keep for yourself!

Macy’s is having their “Biggest One Day” sale on Saturday, but today (Friday) is their preview day! Check out their web busters; they have several cute items, including adorable pajama sets (perfect gifts to give to anyone!).

NORDSTROM.com’s Semi-Annual Sale for Women & Kids is still in full force, but now you can get free shipping on all orders of $100 or more!

Sephora’s Friends & Family discount will end November 21st; use code FF2007 to save 20% on your orders. Get free shipping when you spend $75 (before discount!). You can get a deluxe sample set of 13 items with code GOODIES4U on orders of $25 or more.

MakeUp.com is one of my favorite bargain beauty sites! They have a lot of lovely brands (Chanel, Dior, EL, MAC, Too faced, YSL, etc.) and most items are discounted. If you’re like me, saving helps me buy one more product later on down the road ;) Plus, you can sneak on over to their boutique section, which carries tons of different lines (normal prices, though).

LUSH has specially packaged several of their favorite items into an assortment of pre-packaged gift arrangements. There’s something to fit your budget, because they’ve wrapped up selections for under $20 and even over $250!

Gift.com is giving away a Best of Benefit set for free–just comment for your chance to win!

CherryCulture.com is having 20%, use code HS20 (expires 11/18). Thanks T!

Get through your Friday (or weekend) with some shopping fun! In case you didn’t know, this Sunday is Veteran’s Day, which is one more holiday for retailers to push sales for. So here’s what you can expect this weekend…

macys.com - 11.08 - 11.12
Macy’s is having their Veteran’s Day Sale this weekend, and you’ll find tons of sale items from 10-50% off! I certainly saw some of the coats I’ve been tempted by on sale, so I may have to cave!

NORDSTROM.com Women's Half-Yearly Sale
Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale started on Tuesday, and if you’re a fashion addict in addition to being a beauty addict, you know this isn’t an event to be missed.

Sephora.com, Inc.
Sephora is still having their Friends & Family sale, which will continue until November 21st. I see tons of items already out of stock, and I doubt they’ll be restocked before this steal is up! Save 20% with code FF2007!

Also, we’d love to encourage everyone to submit to the site! We are always looking for submissions of guest looks (with at least one close-up and list of products used), tutorials, your organization solutions, and of course, your questions. If you have something else you’d like to contribute, feel free to send it along! All submissions and feedback should find their way to [email protected].

Enjoy your weekend!

NORDSTROM.com Shop Beauty

With the approach (or rather the onset) of fall comes the accompanying trends in makeup and new product lines released by not only MAC Cosmetics, but nearly every major beauty brand as well. Support Temptalia.com by picking up your fall must-haves through Nordstrom.com (make sure to use links from this post!). But first, take a look at what Temptalia recommends you check out for this autumnal season!

Let’s start with my number one addiction… MAC Cosmetics.

As we know, both Blue Stormicon and Smoke Signalsicon gave us a real head start into fall makeup, and while those are stunning, here are some other products that shouldn’t be missed amongst the limited edition lines (plus, don’t forget, there are several new collections launching later on in September, as well as Alexander McQueen in October – oh, and numerous holiday launches, oh my!).

For the eyes… I would not feel complete and ready to take on the changes of fall without these stunning shadows: Antiqued (gorgeous coppery brown), Bronze (deep chocolate brown with shimmer), Femme Noir (matte deep green), Goldmine (true shimmer gold), Motif (duochrome irridescent orange/purple), and Shroom (subtly shimmery highlight) to name a few; check out this list of eyeshadowsicon for a complete selection.

For the lips… I have to have my corals – I just couldn’t live without them, which means I always ensure that I have a tube of CB96 on hand, plus Sweetie for my barely-there-pink lip. Even if I feel ridiculous in this season’s trendy vampy lip, I still suggest checking out Dark Side, Odyssey, and Rebel to scratch that itch. Go ahead and check out this list of lipsticksiconfor a complete selection.

For the face… In the summer, I tend to tan a bit, so I end up with a bottle of foundation in NC35, but once fall kicks in, I fade a bit to NC30, my more normalized skin color. I adore Studio Fix Fluid foundation, and if you’re able, try and pick up a sample next time you’re at a MAC store or or counter. Moving on to care of the face, because it is wholly important with the expected dryness that accompanies the season. We know Louise Zizzo can’t go without Fast Response Eye Cream, so you shouldn’t either. I personally love MAC’s Strobe Cream for a great light coated moisturizer. See the whole line of moisturizersicon!

Oh, and if you haven’t already picked up your Blue Storm and Smoke Signals goodies, the Gentle Fume x4 and Smoking x4 quads are NOT to be missed. They are perfect for travel or having a no-brainer look because the colors pair so well with each other. I adore Blue Storm eyeshadow; it’s a lovely blue hue, but it isn’t overindulgent like Freshwater or Deep Truth can be. Plus, rock the vampy lip with Burnin’ lipstick (and pair it with Bizaarish lipglass if you’re feeling feisty)!

Let’s see what other beauty brands have in store for us this fall (there are other brands? oh, yes, far too many for any one woman’s wallet!)…
