If you're a serious beauty junkie, chances are you've come to terms with spending a small fortune on products every year. But when I hear about tricks like a cool new way to buy Makeup Geek products on sale, my ears definitely perk up. Although I admit to myself that I will always love a good splurge beauty product, it's always nice to hear of new ways to save on prestige beauty products. And when it's a way to get highly sought after collabs from Kathleen Lights and Manny MUA, it's definitely worth exploring.
I read about the trick to getting these products at a discount on beauty Instagram Trendmood, and it's surprisingly smart. Turns out Makeup Geek sells certain products labeled as "damaged," and they're available for a cheaper price than they typically retail for. So what does damaged mean? Here's what the brand has to say: "These particular products were set aside because of some slight scratches, smudges, or dents. The product is still un-used and fully functional, but does not look pristine. With the palettes, some units may have some imperfections in the pans, on the palette itself, or on both."
It sounds like a pretty awesome deal, right?
If you're fine with using a not-exactly-perfect palette, you can get the (sold out) Makeup Geek x Manny MUA palette for a $5 discount and the Kathleen Lights Highlighter Palette for a $13 discount.
The Makeup Geek x Manny MUA Palette is currently sold out, so this is a great way to get the palette still (and save $5 off its original $45 price). Such a great trick, right?
Although the Kathleen Lights palette is still for sale undamaged on the Makeup Geek site, it normally retails for $39. If you don't mind a slightly damaged product, this is a great way to save.
The Kathleen Light and Manny MUA collabs aren't the only products that are available at discounts because they're damaged. You can get blushes, bronzers, eyeshadows and contour powder pans all for discounted prices. It actually sounds like a pretty smart way to shop, right? If you're interested, I'd snap one up fast — once news like this gets out, it's only a matter of time before people catch on.
