Smashbox, known for their game-changing and award-winning Photo Finish primer, is giving you $10 off your entire $250 purchase when you use the code SBXLOVE. Stock up on everything from their new Always On Liqiud Lipstick to their liquid eyeliner.

Kiko Milano Cosmetics is a rare, but versatile drugstore brand. They’re on the higher-end of the prices you see in your local Walgreens or CVS, but you can grab free shipping on every single order, with now minimum. I love their liquid eyeliner and their eyeshadow sticks.

The Big Sales

Current/Elliott is a denim brand you see everywhere, but the price is just a little too much. Right now at Nordstrom Rack, not only is there a Current/Elliott sale, but Joie, purveyor of all things soft and comfy, is also marked down. So you’ll be able to get an entire outfit for the price of one, non-marked down pair of Current/Elliott jeans. Plus, Joie shoes are also on sale.

H&M just dropped an entire season’s worth of new clothes, and today only, they’re taking 14% off with the code 8287 at checkout. It’s chock full of layering pieces for the transition to the warmer weather in the spring. It’s tons of pastels and denim and it’s great.

It’s too late for Valentine’s Day, but Amazon’s Prime Surprise Sweets box is back down to $14 today, down from its usual $18, matching an all-time low.

You don’t get to pick what comes in the box (it’s a surprise, after all), but previous boxes have included cookies, brownies, brittles, candy, and even donuts. I think it’s a safe bet that there will be sugar involved.

Yes, spring is still over a month away but that doesn’t mean a girl can dream of not having to put on six layers before leaving the house. If you’re also counting down the days where you can free your ankles from the confines of boots, Joe’s New Balance can get you even closer. Pick up a pair of 490v5 sneakers for just $30, shipped, with the code KINJA490.

If yesterday’s Amalfi Coast vacation deal didn’t float your boat, or if you couldn’t find a date that worked for you, Great Value Vacations (in partnership with Travelzoo) is also offering a great package deal on a trip to Ireland, with an extra $100 off per person when you use code LOVETOGO.

Every package includes roundtrip airfare from a number of US cities into Shannon and out of Dublin, a rental car, daily breakfast, and nights in the B&Bs of your choice, so you can explore the country on your own, and not be tied to a tour group.

By default, this package is for six nights and two people, but you can add more of both, and fly out of basically any airport, though prices will vary by location and date. Pricing out of JFK was pretty consistently under $1,000, but it seemed like most other departure cities had the best prices in August and September, so be sure to check the calendar to get the best deal. Just be sure to have a Guinness for us once you get there.

Put a designer watch on your wrist for a lot less than you’d think. Nordstrom Rack is marking down over 30 different styles of Burberry watches for both men and women, for the next three days. It’s basically an excuse to buy yourself a new watch for no reason.

What better way to get ready for the better weather than discounted Under Armour Outlet gear? They just added a ton of styles to their Outlet, with up to 40% off, no code needed. From the classic Under Armour long-sleeves to training shoes to their Threadborne microthread technology, this gear is perfect for running outside in the upcoming warmer months.

Home Goods

Current/Elliott is a denim brand you see everywhere, but the price is just a little too much. Right now at Nordstrom Rack, not only is there a Current/Elliott sale, but Joie, purveyor of all things soft and comfy, is also marked down. So you’ll be able to get an entire outfit for the price of one, non-marked down pair of Current/Elliott jeans. Plus, Joie shoes are also on sale.

Has your dog been a very good pup lately? Of course they have. Consider treating them to this Furbo Dog Camera, which is almost back down to its Black Friday price.

It might seem a little ridiculous to some, but could be super helpful if your dog has separation anxiety, or if you find yourself wondering what your pup does all day while you’re gone. After you connect the device to your home’s Wi-Fi, you can use the app to see, talk to, and dispense treats to your dog. It even doubles as a security camera.

It was $169 over the holidays, but has been since for over $200 for several weeks, so today’s price of $179 is something to wag your tail about.

The silver medalist in our favorite electric toothbrush co-op, this Oral-B 5000 is just $55 after some stacked discounts - clip the $15 off coupon and use promo code 30OB5000VD2.

If the price doesn’t convince you, our readers love this toothbrush because of its superior oscillating, pulsing, and rotating brush head. It also connects via Bluetooth to an app on your phone and can show you were need to brush more, and store data for your dentist to review. This deal will probably not last long, so get while you can.

Heat things up with this Gotham Steel Gold Box, which includes a 15-piece cookware set, 5-piece bakeware set, and 3-piece frying pan set. All of it is this nice copper color, so if you’re into that, all the items in this Gold Box are $20 to $30 less than usual.

Need something to get you through the slogs of The Longest Shortest Month? Amazon is having another Kindle sale, this time full of mystery, science fiction, and thrillers (which sounds like a bad dating profile), all for under $4. Pick up page turners that’ll keep your brain occupied while everything else outside is just... blah.

Let’s say you’ve already upgraded to a good toothbrush; what’s the next step for cleaner teeth? Well, this 14-treatment box of Crest 3D gentle Whitestrips is a great place to start. Just be sure to clip the $5 coupon before you check out to get them for $25.

It’s 2018, and your vacuum cleaner shouldn’t have a cord anymore. Luckily, you can save $40 on this uniquely-designed Bissell AirRam.

The AirRam includes a rechargeable lithium ion battery that can run for 30 minutes at a time, a multi-surface brush roll, and LED lights to help you track down dirt. The feature that really sets it apart though its its slim design and lie-flat handle, which allows you to slide it completely under couches, beds, and other furniture, which hopefully means you’ll actually clean those areas more than twice per year.


Tile Slim | $19 | Amazon

Tile is the ultimate device for anyone who can’t stop losing their things, and you can get one for just $19 right now, easily an all-time low for the 1-pack.

If you aren’t familiar, you just slide this thing into your wallet, keep it in your car, stick it in your luggage...anything you frequently misplace, and the Tile app on your phone can ping them over Bluetooth and cause them to beep until you find what you’re looking for. And if your lost item is outside of your phone’s Bluetooth range, it’ll show up on a map automatically any time another Tile user comes into range.

Google Wifi is one of the highest profile competitors in the exploding mesh router market, and Amazon’s marking down their three-pack of Wifi access points to just $259, within $10 of the best price we’ve ever seen.

Anker’s PowerCore line has long been our readers’ favorite brand of USB battery packs, and you can save big on the slimmest 10,000mAh model, while supplies last.

The PowerCore II Slim appears to be the first PowerCore battery pack to include Anker’s new chipset, which delivers the fastest possible charging speeds to every USB device you own, including Quick Charge 3.0. That said, you’ll notice it’s not actually a Qualcomm-certified Quick Charge 3.0 product; it just replicates the tech on Anker’s own chip. That means less internal circuitry, and more room for battery, resulting in one of the thinnest 10,000mAh battery packs ever made.

Today’s $26 deal doesn’t require a promo code, but it’s a solid $12 less than usual.Anker PowerCore II Slim 10000 | $26 | Amazon

We’ve seen several deals recently on Anker’s hub-free smart light bulbs, but if you don’t mind buying a 2-pack, today’s discount is the best per-bulb price we’ve seen.

This particular bulb can’t display the full RGB spectrum like a Philips Hue lamp, or even different temperatures of white, but you can control and dim it from your phone, or with an Alexa or Google Assistant device, no hub required. And at $13 each, you can afford to put them all around your home.
