Flash sales abound in today’s edition of actually good deals across the internet. We spied the sunglasses a Boston Marathon winner swears by (which are sure to sell out), a makeup-artist-approved tinted moisturizer that won’t crease, and two one-piece swimsuits that clock in at under $95. Plus, J.Crew is offering 40 percent off select full-price items, and Urban Outfitters is offering early access to its sitewide sale if you have a free UO Rewards account.
Boston Marathon winner Des Linden opts for these Oakley shades, which she says doesn’t jostle while she runs. While they’re normally over $100, we spotted this gray-and-purple pair for half-off at Amazon.
Just for today, this semi-matte Clinique tinted moisturizer is half-off at both Ulta and Sephora. Makeup artist Jamie Greenberg likes it especially for mature skin, as it “stays in place once applied and doesn’t get caught up in fine lines, which would cause a creasing look or emphasize them.”
GreenPan’s Valencia Pro, our pick for the best nonstick ceramic skillet, is 25 percent off for a limited time. Recipe developer and food writer Caroline Lange — who recipe-tested three cookbooks on hers — says the oven-safe pans show “very minimal wear” after years of use and “clean easily.”
And if you’d like to go all in, we spotted this trio — which includes an 8-inch, 9.5-inch, and 11-inch pan — for half-off at Nordstrom.
Select full-price apparel at J.Crew is 40 percent off with the code SPRING through April 6. Here’s a gauze dress to make springtime dressing ultra-easy, and it comes in four colors: white, black, apple green, and bright pink.
If your corporate-office job requires business attire year-round, try this fitted blazer from J.Crew, which comes in petite, standard, and tall sizes. It was recommended us to us by Alison Rogel, a six-foot-one influencer, who says its “sleek look and popped collar will add a sense of preppy sophistication to your closet.”
This ruched strapless one-piece goes up to a size 24 and has two fit options: classic or for longer torsos. It also features a full-coverage bottom and built-in UPF 50 for sun protection, and it comes with an optional strap in case you need the extra support.
And here’s a bathing suit with a bit more drama for 30 percent off at Good American. The playful one-piece is available in ivory, black, and firecracker red.
Starting tomorrow, just about everything at Urban Outfitters will be 20 percent off through April 1 — and you can get early access to the savings if you have a free UO Rewards account. We suggest snapping up our best-in-class waterproof Dopp kit, which Kyle Bergman, founder of Swoveralls, says is “leakproof and essentially stain-resistant,” as well as “very easy to clean.”
Everything at hair-care and accessories brand Kitsch is 20 percent off with the code SPRING. Claw clips are having a moment, especially with fashionable teens we’ve spoken to.
If you haven’t yet joined the silk-pillowcase trend, you may want to test the waters with a satin pillowcase — which is far cheaper but still boasts the same hair-smoothing benefits. Kitsch’s comes in 11 patterns, from classic white to leopard print.
