Quick Tips About Beauty Rewards   Beauty Reward Programs: Who’s the best?

beauty rewards_popfashionnews

Frequent shopper rewards programs give us the best bang for our buck. The stores invite us in to buy our favorite items time and time again, alluring us with delicious rewards and freebies gaining customer loyalty. If you’re not on a rewards program, you should be because you can save money and enjoy some nice perks.

With the rise of online shopping and the decline of trips to the mall due to higher prices, brick and mortar stores face tough competition with online shopping deals.

Passing the savings on to you, the manufacturers can go straight to the consumer online on their own websites offering deeper discounts to attract customers, reducing their costs and expenses, passing the saving on to you. Enter the new world of Amazon, taking over retail, leaving brick and mortar in the dust.

I love shopping at an online venue that has a physical store. I can return or exchange my item at the store for an easier return experience. I do not want to stand in line at the post office and return an item. Just the thought of going to a post office is not as fun as going to a store for beauty divas.

Returning items in the store are easy. You are likely to see another item you like and make an additional purchase- adding more point rewards faster. Sending an online item via the postal service is likely to take 7-10 days before you get a replacement or a refund. Check the online vendors return policy before buying.

Let’s start with Sephora and compare them to Ulta

What’s great about Sephora is that they can be conveniently located close to your home than a large mall if you are in an urban area. Sephora carries many of the same items as the department stores and more.

What I like about Sephora is that they carry new and upcoming brands not yet available in the department stores. Many of the new brands are holistic and healthy. They care about animal cruelty and the ingredients they use in the formulas.

Sephora “Beauty Insider Rewards” rewards you “after” you shop. You earn points to get rewards. If you do a full return on that item they take away the points earned. Reward points start at 100 points and go up to 20000 points.

  • ¨ 100-250 Points: You get a mini sample of one item
  • ¨ 500-720 Points: Receive more brand options and some larger samples and more brand choices. Ordering online, use 750 points and over gets free shipping.
  • ¨ 3000-4500 Points: You can earn a “DRYBAR” blowout gift certificate or beauty item kits
  • ¨ 500 -15000 Points: You can get “DRYBAR” blowout gift certificate
  • ¨ 20,000 Points: Win a free trip to Las Vegas Hotel and airfare included for 2 night sponsored by DRYBAR and dinner at Koi

Spend and wait to earn is the way it is done at Sephora. If you have rewards of 750  points accumulated or more, you can order that reward online from your accumulated points. It’s your gift, use it. It also ships for free.

What I did not like at Sephora is that the choices are presented to me by Sephora and I cannot choose freely in the store. You can choose to save your rewards and wait another time when other offerings are presented.

The offerings at the counter when checking out are sample sizes. If you don’t like them, they can make a nice stocking stuffer for the holidays for friends and family.

“Ulta Ultimate Rewards” work differently than Sephora’s beauty rewards programs. To me, the coupons available immediately for $3.50 on purchases over $15 or 20% off coupons send me running to the store. In most cases, if I can get it at Sephora, I would rather get it at Ulta if that brand is eligible for the coupon program.

If you are on their mailing list, the coupon comes on the back of the mailer. They do expire, so hurry in. Lose the coupon? No worries, just type in Ulta Coupon on your phone and up pops the link to the coupon to use immediately.

For every dollar you spend you earn a reward. Sign up for email and get 2X-5X bonus points towards purchases.  Email signups get free birthday gifts and double points during the month of your birthday.

Ulta is like a Sephora, a hair salon, and CVS combined. One side of the store is upscale beauty brands sold at department stores and Sephora. The other side mimics all or most beauty items sold at you favorite drugstores. Ulta also has a beauty salon and in some stores the offer facials by a licensed cosmetologist.

Ulta’s Rewards Points Program

100 Points = $3.00 towards purchase

250 Points = $8.00 towards purchase

500 Points = $17.50 towards purchase

750 Points = $30.00 towards purchase

1000 Points = $50.00 towards purchase

1000 Points = $3.00 towards purchase

2000 Points = $125.00 towards purchase

Remember, points do expire at the end of the calendar year.

Spend $450 or more and you are eligible for Platinum rewards. Instead of 1 point for every dollar, you will earn 1.25 and the points last forever. You also get a $10 certificate to use at Ulta at Holiday time. “Platinum Perks” get you secret offers.

Lovingly girls and gents, if you make your larger purchases at Ulta such as blow dryers, curling irons and the upscale hair care and skin care lines the rewards add up. The best thing about Ulta? You get to choose your products and are not limited to what you have purchased once you redeem your rewards.

 

The winner is Ulta

CVS Extra Care Beauty Club

For every $50 you spend when you get CVS Extra Care Beauty Club you will get $5.00 off the next Big Beauty purchase you make. Coupons galore in your inbox on many brand name items you love like L’Oréal, Maybelline, Almay, Cover Girl, and more.

CVS now carries expensive brands like Fekkai Shampoo, Paul Mitchel, and Keraste. Get the CVS phone app and all your discounts get loaded to your CVS card on your phone. At checkout, the cashier scans your “CVS Extra Care Card” barcode on your phone and voila the discounts are ringed up right off your purchase.  It’s easy and fast. And CVS is always adding to your account and on the receipt new rewards.

CVS also offers Extra Bucks which randomly shows up on your phone app or on your receipt when making a purchase. Sometimes they are as high as $5 or $10 and are based on your previous buys. Extra Bucks are used for anything at the store. Mailers will come to too for 25% or 30 %   off an entire purchase. Love those, they are like gold but are not eligible sometimes for items on sale, so check with the cashier.

Rite Aid Plenti Rewards Program

Rite Aid has the “Plenti Rewards Program.” You can get 30 Percent off many items at Rite Aid by signing up for the rewards program via the Rite Aid website or directly at the store. The rewards for 30% are usually one-day special offers. Rite Aid rewards are pretty straightforward across the entire store. Some of the savings are higher than CVS when they release a 30 % off to shop on a specific day. Via email or on the site you can view specific coupons on items. On beauty items, like CVS, they do have a buy two get one for 50% off.

Walgreens Beauty Enthusiast Points

Walgreens works on a point system to earn dollar rewards for items you choose to buy.  The “Beauty Enthusiast” rewards program gives you 5,000 points for every $50 dollars that you spend. The reward equals $5.00 to spend in the store or online. You also get a personalized profile and beauty picks just for you, and free samples.

You get exclusive beauty promotions and in-store sample events. Rewards do get adjusted when a return is made that equal the value of the return. When you are completing a return from a transaction that went towards points but did not result directly for the issuance of the 5000 Balance Reward points, the points will stay in your account, but the amount required to reach the next beauty enthusiast bonus will be commensurately increased equal to the value of the return.

Department Store Rewards

Bloomingdales

Bloomingdales Loyalist Rewards are top of the line. You spend, you earn, and you earn nicely. Rewards on the high-end cosmetic lines are usually excluded from certain products at Ulta, so I head over to Bloomingdales for most of my high-end cosmetic lines.

Rewards are throughout the store. When you sign up for rewards, you will get email rewards information that looks like this. Spend a $100 and they give you $25 reward card to spend on a purchase or towards another purchase. When it’s time for my $100 Chanel creams, I add mascara. All brands are eligible. You will also get regular sale events at Bloomingdales for 25% on a large selection of items.

Spend $3500 or more and you get four points for every dollar you spend. You can pick four days in the year to earn triple points by calling 866-404-8787 or in the store with a sales associate.

Beauty Supply Rewards

Sally’s beauty has a great rewards program. For every $50 you spend you get a free item as long as it’s under $10.00. That includes any item in the store. Wow, what a great perk!

New members get their first item for free. For every $1.00 you spend, it equals 10 points- allowing you to accumulate 50 points to get that free item over time. Rewards however only have a 60 days lifespan.

“Sally Beauty Rewards” replaced the Beauty Club Card that had a $5 annual fee which had to be renewed every year. Sally’s does not carry high-end cosmetics like Ulta, and Sephora, but they carry many top hair color brands you can’t get at those stores. They are a hot spot for hair care and carry great brands for shampoos and conditioners. Sally’s Beauty Supply also sells their own brands. They have a large selection of blow dryers and straight irons. Notably, they have a big selection of nail care items, one of the best, and a huge selection of combs and brushes. Sally’s Beauty Supply also carries a large selection of hair extensions.

If your purchases total $150 or more in a 12-month period, you’ll become eligible for the Elite tier, which gets you extra perks, like a 5% everyday discount and a beauty box filled with products for your birthday. Elite Tier benefits are calculated for the following year.

Discount Stores

Target is one of the largest suppliers of big brand beauty items. The target app has been updated and once you factor in the Red Card 5% discount off your bill on checkout, you can save really big here.

I just opened my new Target App. It has been updated for an easier, more pleasant experience. I pressed the beauty icon and up came 20-25%- off coupons on hair care items like Tresseme, Nexus, Pantene, Biolage and more. Notably, a Chi Air Classic Flat Iron came up with a  20% off coupon. For cosmetics, I am looking at a 35% off for Rimmel Foundations and 50% off Rimmel concealer. Covergirl cosmetics Peacock mascara has a $3.00 off coupon.

I have to say for these brands I am better off shopping at Target than Ulta. Target items, in general, are cheaper than most other stores on their regular store pricing. Yah! I am a fan.

How To Choose The Best Nude Lipsticks and Nail Polish for Spring

It’s all in your skin tone babes!! Swivel up that tube and hold the whole thing in front of your face. It should make you smile and be happy. If it looks good that way, chances are it will look good on your lips.

Holding the tube up to your cheek lets you see the tone of the lipstick and how it appears with your facial skin tone and hair color.

Same goes for nails. Hold the nail polish bottle up towards your face and chest to get a feel how those two coats of color will look with your overall skin tone.  Our hands are always moving around to different parts of our bodies, and those nails look, “Oh So Pretty” when we use our napkins at lunch to blot our lipstick.

Just like this below

Eye Catching Nail Polish Trends for 2017 and Everyday Real Life- Not On Your Mother’s Pinterest Page

Your nails should fit into your real life.

What’s great about changing our nails is that we can alter our look for whatever mood we are in, and change them up as often as we like. The nail designs we choose extend how we want to feel and look. Going to the salon gives us a little down time to relax and reflect. We leave the nail salon feeling fresh, neat and complete.

Where did Nail Polish Originate?

Nail polish originated in China way back in 300BC. Popular colors in the  Zhou dynasty were silver and gold. Highbrow cultures in Egypt wore rich reds deep browns made of henna, while the lower class set painted their nails with lighter colors.

In the Victorian era of the Western world,  any color on the nails was not accepted as being pure and colorless was the way women were to be. That all changed moving forward to the 1920’s when women came out of their shells and became more rebellious. They started wearing color on their nails and painted their faces with makeup. Celebrity Actress Rita Hayworth made red nail polish very popular from her film Blood and Sand from 1941.

With so many types of nail polish to choose from here’s a rundown on the different finishes

  • Cream polish has no shimmer. It’s very smooth, milky and creamy. It is usually sheer or opaque. Think bone and beige tones.
  • Frosty nail polish finishes are very metallic in their look. The color balance has more frost giving it a high luster book.
  • Micro Glitter polish is thick and more chunky. The glitter particles are larger and the feel of the polish is quite rough in many polishes. 
  • Shimmer nail polish is a subtle polish that can also be sheer. It is a metallic polish.
  • Lustre polish has a pearly finish.The colors are usually white gold, pearl, and silver. It is slightly iridescent and not too frosty.
  • Frost is metallic and frosty. The color is more frost than color pigment. Frost was popular in the 70’s.
  • Duo-chrome is light reflective and has two or more colors in it.
  • Prismatic micro-glitter or shimmer gives a 3-D color effect. Think rainbow and what you see on the back of your credit card on the silver holographic part and you see blue, pink.and white pearl.
  • Iridescent nail polish gives a flashy effect incorporated with another color.
  • Opalescent polish has a pearly finish.
  • Matt polish is flat with no shine.

Fun Fact: Neon nail polish has not been approved by the FDA, therefore you will only see the imported brands on the shelves. OPI uses only approved color dyes in their polishes.

With so many finishes and colors to choose from,  we can change our look in and instant. Do you have a favorite nail style?  If so, please comment below.

Danger Alert: FDA Warns about Temporary Tattoos

What is The Danger About?

Temporary tattoos known as “decal” tattoos can potentially be harmful. The dyes used in applications known as henna and black henna are used to create the designs.

Tattoos are drawn anywhere on the body and can last up to two weeks.Children and teenagers also get these temporary tattoos in increasing numbers, they are not just for adults.

Concerning Applications of Tattoos

The application to place a henna tattoo varies. Some have a removable backing that adheres to the skin with moisture, usually adding water to it, and then applying it to the skin.  Decal tattoos will adhere to the skin.

Some companies sell the decals and state that they can be made with any inkjet, or laser printers ink and then applied to the skin. Clearly, a warning sign to be aware of, especially if you child is ordering from a company that sells tattoo making procedures with printer ink. Printer ink has a lot of chemicals in it and is not an FDA- approved cosmetic.  One such company that sells this is “Decalpaper.”  http://www.decalpaper.com/category-s/8.htm

Allergic Reaction Warnings

An adhesive tattoo may create a partial barrier between the skin and the image dye. Dyes used that are not approved by the FDA for cosmetic uses are a major concern.

There could be an alarming allergic reaction, as henna dyes are not approved for cosmetic use under FDA regulations.

Since henna is naturally an orangey brown, other dyes can be infused with it to make other colors. These colors are known as black and blue henna.  Black and blue henna dyes contain PPD (p-Phenylenediamine), and it is not permitted for use as a hair dye for skin application.

The PPD dyes will show an immediate color on the skin that is more deep and rich in hue. The henna dyes usually take some time to deepen, about 2- 4 days. Both will last 2-6 weeks depending on washing methods.

Henna dyes may not cause as much of an allergic reaction the same way PPD dyes do.  In small children, it can cause a hemolytic seizure event, if the child has red blood cell enzyme deficiency. If the PPD dye causes an allergic reaction, the skin has the possibility of oozing sores and the potential to leave scars on the skin. If this occurs, seek immediate attention to your doctor or emergency room.

Labeling Concerns

Under the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act (FPLA), all ingredients on the labels of these products sold to consumers must be visible but are not required if a salon professional is performing the application.

County fairs and street vendors offering these applications do not have to comply with the labeling of ingredients. Many vendors are not aware of the harmful ingredients and allergic reactions that may occur with the tattoos they are applying on one’s skin.

People getting permanent lip, eyebrow and eyeliner tattoos should address their concerns with their salon’s cosmetologist.

The Best Brow Looks We Found and The Top Five Products to Achieve Them

Brows have changed shapes over the years. From Pamela Anderson super thin arched brows to the new thicker intense darker brow looks for 2017- see the looks here and the products to get them. My favorite all around brow pencil is from Chanel. The reason I love the Chanel brow Crayon Sourcils Sculptant Eyebrow Pencil for $32.00 it is  the most natural looking product on the market. The pencil is firm, but soft at the same time. It lets you keep layering and stroking for big buildable coverage. I find I can use this product and not have to buy anything else, as your brows will certainly stay put using the Chanel eyebrow pencil.

There are other good cheaper products on the market that work well, but I do notice with the cheaper brands, you have to spend more time using them, and using more than one product from the same line, or another line to get the new thick brow look you desire.

There is NYX Tame and Frame, NYX Micro Brow Pencil, NYX Eyebrow Gel, and NYX Eyebrow Powder.  They are are a good drugstore brand alternative. In particular from the NYX Browline is the 3-in-1 Brow. The brow gel on his is thick and rich, and the pencil is creamy, but can get a little gummy. It also comes with a powder point end for softening.For three items you will spend around $25.00.

Anastasia Brow Pencils are very thin and the pencil is harder. It comes with a spoolie at one end. If you want the thick eyebrow look, you will need to buy more form this line to create a thick look. This pencil is good for creating smaller hairs. The Anastasia Brow Powder Duo and Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel would help you achieve the look, but all of this will set you back over $60.00

The Maybelline Brow Precise® Fiber Volumizer for under $10 is a good affordable choice and can be used alone if you already have thicker brows and just want a little color and density fill in. I suggest using the Eyestudio® Brow Precise® shaping pencil and grooming brush as the pencil is not to skinny and the density is decent. Top if off with Brow Drama® Pro Palette. The kit  comes with with sculpting wax, filling powder, and a highlighter.

Mac Big Brow Pencil is a great choice for thick brows using one product. The formula is mixed with powder and wax and will give you a stay put finish for $21.00.

Revlon Brown Fantasy Pencil and Gel is great for the creamy pencil consistency, and it looks exactly the color on your brows as it does in the package. You will have to keep stroking and feathering the pencil to achieve the thick brow look, but the color pigments on this one is a good choice.

Let is know if you have a great brow product you like and we will check it out and write about it or add it here.
