Weekly Beauty Sales and Spotlights are back!

Once upon a time in a far away land, Clumps of Mascara used to post weekly sales and deals. It was a popular series. Buuuut, somewhere along the way, I got super busy and was unable to keep up with the best of the best as it relates to beauty coupons, deals and sales. Who better to help a gal out than a coupon blogger? Shana from Frugal Files will be shooting me deals from CVS, Rite-Aid and Walgreens EVERY week. In the coming weeks, I will be including sales, deals and giveaways from Sephora, Ulta, Sally Beauty Supply, drugstore.com and coupons.com.

Keep in mind that there is an art to couponing. If you are serious about it, be sure that you understand the lingo and policies. And since I’m still a budding couponer myself, our resident Coupon gal, Shana is just a click away to help.

Get your list ready. Later this week on the Clump Facebook page, I’ll reveal details about my budding hobby–couponing. In the meantime, let me know what you plan on pickin’ it up.

Tarte Cosmetics and Urban Decay’s mega discounts!

I love that these sales are coming out right around the holidays. And this is why I will always love and support tarte. 40% off? Now that’s what I call a sale!

If you’re a brown girl looking for a new face powder, check out tarte’s Hotel Heiress. I wear it daily on my cheeks and it is absolutely gorgeous. And with the discount, it’s only $18. I’m afraid that it will be discontinued soon so I’ll take two, please!! I reviewed the waterproof bronzer here. Looking to incorporate more natural products in your beauty regimen? head to tarte and get your shop on.

I spy eyeliner pencils with my name on it!

Y’all already know how much I love Urban Decay’s liners. And now I can scoop up a few more with a discount. Yessss! Oh, and don’t forget about the Primer Potion, remix.  Now you can snag it for the low. Or maybe you’d like to try their Ink for Eyes gel liner. So many choices and so little time. Hurry hurry!

Got your eyes on anything from tarte and Urban Decay?

Sista Show-Off: Frugalista Bloggers


Welcome to another post from the Sista Show Off series! In this series I like to show some love to other companies, blogs, businesses, organizations or just regular ladies like myself who are paving the way for women everywhere! Let me feature you! Shoot me an email at Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com.

Y’all know me…I’m cheap. I live a  ‘On a budget, find a sale, where is the clearance rack?’ lifestyle. I am the opposite of a shopaholic. I’ve been frugal for as long as I can remember. And even when I have money…I don’t like spending much of it. That’s just the way I roll. In a world of “You ain’t cool if you ain’t rockin’ $298 shoes”, it is refreshing to see other frugalista-type bloggers. 

Cheapalicious.net

If you’re like me and have a hard time buying things WITHOUT a coupon, then you are going to love Cheapalicious. She not blogs about deals and sales, but she shows the clothes, jewelry and shoes she gets for the low. Loves it!

Frugal Chic Depot

Fellow Floridian blogger Jan-Nini shops like me…she doesn’t pay retail for anything. Um, me neither! Unless someone else is payin’. HA! This full time student and Mommy knows how to stay on a budget while looking fierce.


The Frugalista Files

This is my friend, y’all! Yep, Natalie and I were both panel speakers at last year’s Blogalicious Conference. She was the first “frugalista” blogger that I ran into. She drops helpful hints and tips on how you can save money in all areas of your life. She also does little challenges in which she attempts to save even MORE money. “Eating in instead of spending out”? I’m so there!



And I’ve mentioned it before but subscribe to Daily Worth’s newsletter. They have been SO helpful for me. Just last week I learned the importance of paying your credit card bills on time. Who knew even being a day late could REALLY hurt your FICO score? They also have helpful tips for us womenpreneurs out there.



Save now, benefit later, ladies! Any fellow frugalistas in the house?
