Happy Birthday to me! Cha-cha-cha! No, seriously, today’s my birthday—and to celebrate, I’m giving you all the gift of loot. So if your birthday is fast approaching, celebrate by checking out all the totally free beauty stuff you can score just for getting one year older. That is, if you can squeeze it into your birthday schedule sometime between presents and partying.
Benefit. Get your eyebrow game right: For the whole week of your birthday, stop by a Benefit boutique or a Macy’s Benefit counter for complimentary brow shaping and services.
Sephora. If you’re a Sephora Beauty Insider, you can collect a free beauty gift on your birthday in store or online. This year, it’s a free Nars Mini Lip Duo, which includes a mini Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella and mini Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien.
CVS. The nice people over at CVS will load $3 onto your CVS card on your birthday if you’re a member of their beauty club, so you can finally pick up that new mascara you’ve been eyeballing—no more excuses.
Ulta. Stop by an Ulta store sometime during your birthday month to get a full-size Signature CK One Mascara totally free. Sweet.
Tarte. If you’re a member of tarte.com (it’s free to join), you get a 20 percent off coupon on your birthday that you can use during your birthday month. And when you use it, they’ll throw in a free beauty gift with your order—it’s a twofer! Fingers crossed it’s the Sculptor Contouring Face Slenderizer, which is the only reason I have cheekbones.
Bareminerals. If you’re a member of the BareMinerals Friend & Benefits Club (FAB), you can score a free full-size Marvelous Moxie lip gloss in a shade you’ll love (they pick a color for you based on your customer profile). Just check out their website to join the club.
Fresh. Pop in to any Fresh store on your birthday and you can get a Fresh Sugar Kisses Mini Lip Duo, which includes one original and one in Rose. And if my opinion counts at all, you should know that the Fresh Sugar lip balms are in my top five favorite products of all time.
