Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Free Beauty Birthday Gifts

Free Beauty Birthday Gifts

The best time of year at Ulta and Sephora is when you get to go in and get that sweet birthday freebie. 

I really perfer to shop at Ulta. Their rewards program and shopping experience is better in so many ways. But...their birthday savings are notably a bucket of crap. They change what you get each quarter in a way that has no equivilent vlue. This year, I got the best birthday gift (really). First quarter got an Ulta-brand lip mask. Third and fourth quarter get a deluxe-size mascara. But me? I got a teeny tiny NARS Orgasm blush. But, as you can see, if you don't have a second-quarter birthday, you're SOL. Now, like most beauty enthusiasts, Orgasm has been a part of my makeup bag for years, but no one can complain about a backup.

Sephora very nicely lets you pick between three different gifts. Options are a Bumble & Bumble shampoo and conditioner set, a GlamGlow skincare set, or a Bite Beauty set of lip products. If you've been around here for a while, you know I wanted some lipsticks. The set includes a matte lip pencil and a tiny Amuse Bouche lipstick.

Overall, a dang good birthday, right? Best of all, these are free. If you belong to the FREE rewards program, they are FREE. They're also all wonderful products that I will really use every day. Those Bite lipsticks are living in my purse, and I'm loving the blush for travel.
