BeFlurt: Overstock Makeup!

Hey everyone! Hope you're having a great week so far. Thanks for taking a break with me to check out some high end makeup for discounted prices! I'm always excited to see websites that offer overstock makeup, and that's what BeFlurt does. Similar to Beauty Ticket, BeFlurt is able to give you discounts on a number of high end brands, and give you access to certain discontinued or special edition products that you might not be able to find elsewhere. If you're the type of person that likes rummaging through the makeup area at Big Lots because you never know what you'll find-- you'll like this site. What's fun is that there are always new additions!
Here is the mini haul I received from the company. I'm happy to report that all of these things arrived at my house in good condition- they were packaged very thoroughly, which is important when you're receiving makeup in the mail. By the way, this site says everything they sell is 100% authentic- no fake products here. Please continue to read as I provide honest reviews of the products. Also- keep an eye out for these items in upcoming tutorial videos! :)

Be aware that the amount of the discount varies from product to product. While some of the markdowns are really significant, others only amount to a couple of dollars. The site includes items from 20 different brands, but the amount of products offered in each brand varies greatly. For example, there are lots of MAC products on the site, but only a few Bobbi Brown products. And remember, it's not purely discontinued products... in some cases it's just overstock.
Estee Lauder Brilliant Shimmer All-Over Powder in After Hours
BeFlurt Price: $19.75 (retail price: $35.00)
I enjoy this product because I love highlighters that provide multiple shades. You can swirl a brush in this and end up with a light pinkish-mauve shimmer powder, or use them individually. I like to use the center highlight powder to highlight the cupid's bow area of my lips. I still think the price is a bit high for what this product is. This reminds me of the Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips, which are available at the drugstore for much cheaper than the discounted price of this product.

Estee Lauder Tom Ford Collection: The Face Highlighter in Coquillee
BeFlurt Price: $19.75 (retail price: $45.00)
This product provides a really concentrated shimmer. It can be really intense if you want it to be. I think the packaging is gorgeous and it's definitely an item you can use on your cheekbones, brow bones, or anywhere on your face. Despite the substantial discount, the price is still kind of high. Of the two highlight powders, I think the one above is the most wearable.

MAC Lipglass in Steal My Heart
BeFlurt Price: $12.99 (retail price: $14.00)
While the discount on this product is minor... I really love this lip gloss! There is a really nice selection of MAC products on this site, which I think it really cool! If you plan to buy a lot, a dollar or two off here and there can definitely add up. I've been loving berry-colored products on my lips lately, and this provides sheer color and shimmer, which I think is perfect for summer! I don't own much MAC lip gloss, but I think this one is awesome :)

Clinique Touch Base for Eyes in Canvas Deep
BeFlurt Price: $12.75 (retail price: $14.00)
I really, really like this product as an eyeshadow base. Sometimes cream shadows are too greasy, and definitely couldn't be worn on their own-- but this is not one of them. This shows up on the lids as a luminous golden bronze. It looks practically like concealer in the picture, but it has a subtle pearly sheen that makes lids glow. When used under shadow, it helps it last longer. It's not a major discount, but since I find this to be a pretty unique cream shadow product, I think it's worth it. Never tried a Clinique shadow base before!


Ultimately, this site is a great way to try new things. If higher prices have held you back from certain high end items (that's been the case for me quite often!), then you can browse this site for some good deals. It's a nice way to get acquainted with new brands, and I like that the selection is always changing. Thanks BeFlurt for introducing me to your site! :) Have a great day everyone!!

  1. I love Clinique Touch Base!

    I have mine in Canvas Light and for my fair skin it is just the right amount subtle shimmer that can be worn solo or paired with a slightly smudged brown eyeliner for a beautiful soft look.

    It was my first eye primer before I tried e.l.f.'s mineral and studio primers and it is the one I am always reaching for.

    FYI - If you can, keep the silver sticky cover over the product, I find that it WILL dry out pretty quickly without it and it's not much fun to try and smudge over your eyes when it's dry and stubborn.

    LOVE your videos and blog updates!

  7. Hi Emily, i really think you should check out STRAWBERRYNET.COM They also sell discounted costmetics/skincare/fragrance, and they offer free shipping world wide! They often have really good deals. I just purchased Benefit Dallas blush for ($18.50 AUD/$15.50 USD), Bobbi Brown shimmer brick (unboxed) in Rose and Nectar for ($23.00 AUD/$19.50 USD each). I live in Australia, and everything here is ridiculusly EXPENSIVE. A brand new BB shimmer brick retails for $80AUD, and even the Physicians Formula shimmer strips cost $27.95AUD!!!! strawberrynet really is a lifesaver for us who doesnt live in the states!

  15. I know this an older post but I just want people to know this: I recently ordered some Mac blushes from this website because they were having a sale and when they arrived I compared them to blushes I've bought directly from Mac and there were a lot of details that do not match up in the packaging. I'm pretty sure these are counterfeited items which is very disappointing. I can't speak for the other brands that they sell but I'm just telling you from my experience with the Mac products they claim to be authentic.
