Birthday Freebies

A fun thing about birthdays is that if you know where to look, you can snag some free stuff. I have email lists and rewards programs to thank for that. For food and drink, I got a free beverage for being a Starbucks rewards member and a Frequent Steeper at David’s Tea. I also got a free dessert during my dinner at Sino for being on their email list.

The beauty freebies are just as good! Here’s what I was able to get this year:

Sephora offered either a NARS lip pencil set or a Peter Thomas Roth facial care set for their Beauty Insiders. Seeing that this was the first time I had to choose, I looked up what the suggested retail value was for each one. I went for the Peter Thomas Roth set since I’m well taken care of with the lip products.

As part of the ULTAmate Rewards program with Ulta, members received a coupon to redeem for their Complete Eye Palette. It includes 4 shadows and 1 powder liner. I got the Indie palette, which is a mix of purple/brown shades with a highlighter color in the middle (the photo does not do much justice, unfortunately).

I’ve only started visiting Peninsula Beauty after finding out that they had the hair color I was looking for. I received an email which I could present for either a free OPI Classic, Essie, or Morgan Taylor nail polish. I chose Essie’s Mademoiselle, which is one of the brand’s best sellers.

Haven’t tried any of the items from this freebie haul yet. Most likely will once the birthday month is over. I still have some more celebrating to do!
