Have you heard of Coterie? It’s a beauty sale site that’s currently offering both a mind-blowing intro promo code and a deal on Butter London nail lacquer, and I could not wait to share it with you.
I have to give huge props to blogger Sparkle Girl’s Life for posting about Coterie, because while I’d heard it mentioned in passing, her post was the one that sent me to the site to see exactly what the buzz was about. (Check out her awesome blog here!)
Coterie is a members-only flash sale site dedicated to beauty. From the website:
Coterie is an exclusive, members-only site featuring an ultra-selective collection of the newest and most sought-after beauty products. In collaboration with top makeup artists, stylists and industry trendsetters, Coterie provides the woman on-the-go access to everything she needs to know, all in one place.
It’s basically the best of beauty deals, online shopping, social sharing, and flash sale alerts, all in one place! It’s free to join and the site is planning to offer a host of new features like a virtual vanity, personalized sale alerts, and rewards points for referring friends.
Now, on to the really good part (and the massive intro promo I mentioned in the title!). The first deal available on Coterie is a trio of Butter London nail lacquers, plus your choice of a P.D. Hardwear or Matte Finish topcoat. There are six Butter London shades to choose from: West End Wonderland, Wallis, Pillar Box Red, Knackered, Bluey, and All Hail the Queen.
The Butter London deal costs $36 and is listed as a $60 value, so you’re already saving money there. But here’s the really really amazing promo deal: Coterie is offering a limited code for new members only. Enter the promo code “VIPMEMBER” at checkout to receive $25 off your order!
Yep, do the math! A $60 package cut down to $36, minus the $25 promo, plus $4.99 for ground shipping = $15.99 total. That works out to $4 per polish, which is jaw-dropping considering that the polishes retail for $14 apiece and the top coat retails for $18. In other words, these super-pricey, high-fashion colors, from the lacquer known for creating exclusive fashion week shades, cost less than a drugstore polish.
I simply couldn’t pass up this deal, so I signed up for Coterie. It’s super-fast, super-easy, and free. You have to enter a valid e-mail address and password; that’s it. Go to your account to add your name, shipping address, and birthday; you can choose whether or not to keep credit card info on file, or simply add it when you’re ready to checkout. (I always prefer that sites NOT remember my info, so I loved that feature.) I think the site looks really clean and lovely and is easy to use, and I’m very impressed.
Remember when you get to the checkout to choose the $4.99 shipping option and enter the promo code! You’ll kick yourself if you don’t! And don’t wait to order–while I was placing my order both packages were listed as available, but when I went back to the site ten minutes later to double-check my account the “matte” package was already listed as sold out!!
I can’t wait to get my Coterie order and will definitely share swatches and reviews when it arrives. I ordered the Hardwear package with Wallis, Knackered, and Bluey. This will be my first experience with Butter London and I can’t wait!
