This Week's Sales: Lorac, Beauty.com, NYX
...and more!

Before we get started, here's my nag list. Just remember, I nag because I love!

#1) Have you entered my Blogiversary Giveaway yet? Someone's getting a pretty sweet gift this winter-time holiday season (if I do say so myself!) Over $130 worth of my favorites from this year: MAC, Sugarpill, Sleek MakeUP, Orly and more...don't miss out!

#2) Have you checked out the BeautyBloggers.org yet? Hard to find limited editions and high-end brands at half price- plus, all proceeds go to charity? Why wouldn't you??? I have a $76 Flirt! mega-set on the block for the low, low price of $31- not to mention the $80 body firming gel going for 90% off it's retail price! There's tons more from me & over 40 other bloggers, so make sure you check it out- auction ends Monday, December 20th at 5 pm CST.

#3) The sales...

HauteLook LORAC and Tribeca Beauty Spa start on Monday, December 13th. On Tuesday the site features Alterna with Pixi & Pop Beauty on Wednesday. Kevyn Aucoin, Orange Berlin and Bay Area Medical Spa all start on Thursday and Friday brings Color Discovery Day and
Balanced Health. Not sure what those two really mean, but they sound fun (OK, maybe not so much the Balanced Health, but Color Discovery? Yay!)

Rue La La has an exclusive Beauty.com even this Monday.

Ideeli showcases R Sessions hair tools beginning Monday, and Peter Lamas haircare and Amika tools on Wednesday, December 15th- did I mention Wednesday is the last day to enter my giveaway ;)

Gilt Groupe skips Monday but sets up camp on Tuesday with Freeze 24-7 skincare and TRIA Beauty on Thursday.

Swirl has Compagnie de Provence going on now- sale ends Wednesday, December 15th.

Also going on now, Beyond the Rack has Lola Cosmetics, which ends Thursday.

Beauty Story starts the week on Tuesday with Heys. Peacekeeper Cosmetics and Decléor pop up on Wednesday, with Lia Schorr and NYX on Thursday and Stream Cosmetics on Friday.

Brand Alley (UK only) has Clinique and OPI starting Monday, as well as a multi-brand Pamper Parlour that will run until Monday, December 20th. We can both earn a £10 voucher if you join now; click here for an invite!

Have fun shopping, stay warm & safe, and stay tuned later this week for a peek at Sugarpill Cosmetics hot new Chromalust shades- I'll have close ups, swatches & maybe even a tutorial or two that you can rock at your company "holiday" party! See you soon!

I cant agree enough that shopping online is THE way to go. Quick question though- Im always kind of wary of those site that claim to have legit products for such a too-good-to-be-true price. How can you know if theyre genuine?
ps] Are you going to announce the winner of your ultra-fab GA in a blog post or is it going to be a private thing?

You're right to be wary. The sites
I list on here all guarantee authenticity, and I've actually seen several of the featured brands themselves promote the sales through Twitter.

A good thing to look for is the type of items they're selling: you'll notice these members only sales don't offer the full product range at discount- it's generally a smattering of discontinued items or overstocked sets- for example, I've never seen Primer Potion or a Book of Shadows on sale when Urban Decay hits the sale sites!

For more info on savy on-line shopping, check out my "Ask OutInAPout" post about eBay shopping; many of the same rules apply to other Internet sources!

To answer your question about the Blogiversary Giveaway winner, I'll personally email the person, and I'll do a post on here announcing the winner...very soon!
