Were you tempted by the Butter London Steampunk Ball set I swatched the other day? Still considering it?
If so, be glad you waited because Butter London is having a 30% off sale and I don’t see any exclusions.
As you can see, use the code BEZZIE14, and the offer is valid through 10/27/14 at 11:59 pm PST (actually PDST, since the time hasn’t switched over yet).
I tried the code on the Steampunk Ball set and a few other items, just to see if it worked on new releases, and it does. Also, I believe that orders over $50 get free shipping.
In an unrelated note, would you be interested in my reviewing the beauty box service (not a subscription) called Memebox? It’s a Korean-based company, and here is the U.S. link. I asked this question on my Facebook page and didn’t receive any replies.
I recently got interested in the company thanks to (or, considering how addictive it’s becoming, perhaps I should say “no thanks to”) blogger-reviewer Formul8edphrase. Specifically what fascinated me was her post called “Let’s Chat: Skincare Routine.” Also the post from Skin & Tonics that she references makes informative reading.
From what Formul8edphrase said and showed — amazing before and after photos! — and other things I’ve read, Asian skin care is so much more intensive and thorough than most American efforts and certainly more than what I’ve been doing for myself. I think we often tend to concentrate the most on makeup because it’s fun, and less on skin care because it’s “work.”
At any rate, I ordered some separate Korean products such as a BB cream from Missha and some facial masks (two words: honey mask — it’s heaven!) and am loving them. Then I ordered one Memebox to see if I liked it, and I sure did. I got one called Pinkaholic, which is currently sold out.
New boxes usually go up for sale several times a week with a roughly two-month-out shipping date, and sometimes sold-out boxes are restocked. These aren’t junk-in-a-box thrown together to get rid of crap that isn’t selling; they are curated, themed collections. Sometimes you know what will be in them but most often not. I like the combination of a known theme but surprise specifics.
Some of the current boxes for sale are Cleopatra, Brighten & Correct, and Wine & Cheese. Some boxes are more skin-care-focused and others are more makeup-focused, although I believe the term “cosmetics” includes all of that, not just makeup.
So, what do you think? Want to see what I got in Pinkaholic? Can’t hurt, right? Said no enabler ever.
