Beauty Treats To Help You Make It To The End Of The Week!

The week before a long weekend always seems to drag by. If you’re in Canada – this Monday is a civic holiday [translation: three day weekend]. Luckily, I’ve stumbled across three new and exciting beauty treats that I can’t wait to share.

Tarte Cosmetics Friends and Family Sale Tarte Friends And FamilyIf you live in the US – this one is for you [Tarte does not currently ship to Canada]. I’m seriously considering order a few items and sending them to my friends and family south of the border – it isn’t often such a large player in the beauty space offers a 30% discount. Some of my go to Tarte products include: the maracuja creaseless concealer and the LipSurgence lip tints. Also – orders over $40 qualify for free shipping – just head over to tarte.com and shop your little American hearts out.

Square Hue Nail Polish Box Hue BoxThis is the Birchbox/Glossybox/Beauty Box 5 for the nail addict. At $14.99 [plus shipping and handling] a month, you’ll receive 3 full sized bottles of lacquer right to your door step. The polishes are made in the same factories as the major players in the industry and are of comparable quality. You can opt in and out at any time without any extra fees – bonus, they ship to Canada! The August collection is sold out already so if you’re interested in signing up for the Fall, don’t wait too long. Just head to SquareHue.com and follow the easy instructions.

Sephora VIB Rouge Program Sephora VIB RougeA huge revamp is in the works for the giant beauty product retailer. It is still free of charge to become a beauty insider, but now you will be rewarded based on how much you spend. Previously there were two categories, those who frequented Sephora only a few times a year, and those who spent over $350 in 365 [I’ll let you guess which category I fit into]. Now, Sephora is adding a third category – for the completely beauty obsessed population. To qualify, you must spend over $1000 in a calendar year. By doing so, you will receive exclusive gifts and event invitations, free beauty consultations and much more! The VIB Rouge program will kick off August 12, with extra points and giveaways for all tier members during that week. I suggest saving your pay checks until the launch – who doesn’t love some free beauty product samples and perks!

Not a bad week for beauty lovers!
