6 luxury beauty items that are actually affordable right now!

One of my absolute favorite things is finding luxury beauty items for a super great deal. Sometimes it feels like the best products are out of reach because of their pretty price tag – but today I've found amazing deals on SIX high-end beauty products that you will want to add to cart ASAP!

Plus, I'm going to tell you about an incredible campaign QVC has going on right now that allows you to give back to charity with your purchase – AND you get an additional beauty gift bag as a thank you!

In a hurry? Go straight to my picks below!

Beauty with Benefits Campaign

Before we talk luxury beauty, I'm so excited to give you the 411 on QVC's Beauty with Benefits campaign going on right now! When you purchase one of the donated beauty products here, 70% of your purchase price will be given to an organization called “Cancer and Careers.” This organization helps those with cancer in the workplace.

This cause is close to my heart. I've had friends with cancer and I've watched them battle their diagnosis while also focusing on their career path, and as you can imagine, that is NOT easy. It takes a toll and I think it's amazing that Cancer and Careers gives so many valuable resources to these incredible people.

Cancer and Careers is the only U.S.-based nonprofit organization that focuses on a key survivorship issue: the fundamental need to work. Providing expert advice, interactive tools, and educational events, Cancer and Careers serves patients, survivors, healthcare providers, employers, and coworkers. Every program and service provided is available free of charge, thanks to sponsors and supporters.

If you don't want to purchase a beauty item on their donated list, but you would like to donate directly to the cause, you can do so here!

Gift with purchase

If you purchase one of the donated beauty items from this list, not only will 70% of the purchase price be given back to Cancer and Careers, but you will also receive a Beauty with Benefits tote as a thank you! This tote is filled with 10+ items from amazing brands including: Too Faced, Josie Maran, June Jacobs, and more. Your bag will have a minimum value of $150. How amazing is that?!

Now, let's talk luxury beauty (for non-luxe prices!)

I LOVE that QVC gives back. I LOVE that QVC has amazing products. And I LOVE that QVC's amazing products have unbeatable prices, too! Let's talk about the top six luxury beauty products you can get at QVC right now for affordable prices – because I believe you should be able to treat yourself without hurting your wallet!

To top it all off, a few of these purchases are even BETTER because 1) 70% of the purchase price will be given to Cancer and Careers, and 2) you will receive a “thank you” tote with a minimum value of $150 worth of beauty products inside! SUCH an amazing time to buy these luxe faves.

1. St. Tropez Express Bronzing Mousse with Mitts

This St. Tropez Express Advanced Bronzing Mousse is my #1, forever go-to self-tanner, and if you've been here for a hot minute you probably already know that! I have tried so many others, but St. Tropez performs perfectly, every time.

This self-tanner is so user-friendly, you’ll consider yourself a self-tanning expert in no time if you're new to the tan-at-home crew! Just exfoliate, apply the mousse with a tanning mitt (this duo deal comes with mitts!) and hang out for two hours. After showering it off, the tan continues to develop for hours for a golden and natural-looking glow.

You’ll want to just rinse off after two hours, not shower with soap since the tan continues to develop!!

ALSO I love that St. Tropez Express Bronzing Mousse DOES NOT dry my skin out. For a while there I was using a different self tanner until I noticed that it really was drying my skin out – and since I already have dry skin, it would peel and not look awesome by the 4-6 day mark. This St. Tropez Mousse does NOT do that to me — it fades really gently and doesn’t dry out my skin. HALLELUJAH.

This product is not included in the Beauty with Benefits deal – BUT, normally, buying two of these St. Tropez cans PLUS mitts to go with them would be $103. Today? You can get this luxury beauty deal for only $49.96! That's 52% OFF retail and has “treat yourself” written alllll over it.

I really just have to express how great of a deal this is – ONE St. Tropez mousse is normally $44. So the fact that you are getting TWO cans PLUS MITTS for only $49.96? It's almost unbelievable!

2. ELEMIS Peptide 24/7 Favorites Kit

Can you say SKIN REFRESH? I love a good, smooth skin palette for summer because that means 1) I can choose to go without makeup, or 2) I can apply light makeup to perfectly smooth skin!

This ELEMIS Peptide 24/7 Favorites Kit is the perfect way to get that summer glow. Plus, it's already winning because…it's ELEMIS. ELEMIS changed my life and now it is my go-to skincare brand, hands down. If you've been wanting to try some ELEMIS products, this is a great place to start!

This Favorites Kit is the BEST way to try out ELEMIS if you haven't already, because for only $55 you get a morning and night skincare routine. And if you're already a converted ELEMIS lover like myself, you'll know how much of a STEAL this is!

MORNING: To start off your day, you'll want to use ELEMIS's Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser. This is truly a luxurious daily cleanser that dissolves makeup and grime while also defending against pollutants for radiant, youthful-looking skin.

Next, you'll want to use the Peptide4 Recovery Eye Cream, which revives, brightens, and hydrates tired and overworked eyes to improve the appearance of dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines.

Lastly, apply the Peptide4 Adaptive Day Cream, which instantly hydrates and primes your skin to make it look flawless ALL day.

NIGHT: At night, you will want to use the Cream Cleanser & Recovery Eye Cream again, while ending your routine with the Peptide4 Plumping Pillow Facial. This is a clinically proven hydration mask that locks in moisture overnight for a radiant, younger-looking complexion in the morning. Amazing and sounds SO refreshing, right?!

If the products aren't incredible enough, let's talk VALUE. To get all FOUR of these products (plus the cosmetic bag that comes with it!) you would normally pay $112.99. But TODAY you can get this luxury beauty deal for only $55!! Like I said before, if you've been wanting to try ELEMIS, this is a great way to try a bunch of things at a low cost. 52% OFF.

(And how amazing is this… you get ALL of these ELEMIS products, plus the “thank you” Beauty with Benefits gift bag (minimum value of $150) for only $55! PLUS you're giving back to charity… this deal is seriously INSANE.)

3. IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara & Eyeliner 4-Piece Set

The IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara is one of my top three favorite mascaras, and I've been using it for FOREVER.

I love how gentle yet lengthening it is. It's gentle enough that it washes off super easily, but it really gives you SUPER DRAMATIC lengthening and thickening, making every little lash POP. And with over 1,800 5-star reviews, you know I'm not the only one OBSESSED with this mascara!

I've never used this specific IT Cosmetics eyeliner, but it has super awesome reviews that rave about how it glides on smooth as butter and has great staying power.

Normally ONE of these mascaras is $25, and ONE of these eyeliners is $24 – but today you can get TWO mascaras & TWO eyeliners for $48.50! That's about HALF OFF the retail price you would pay of $98. Take advantage, stock up, and HURRY because this deal doesn't come around too often. (Especially with the donation to Cancer and Careers and the huge “thank you” beauty tote attached to it!)

4. bareMinerals Radiant Complexion Brush Collection

I don't own this specific set, but I DO own several bareMinerals makeup brushes and they are all EXTREMELY high quality. If you are in need of some new makeup brushes, I would buy this set without hesitation – especially knowing that you are getting it for such a great deal!

There's not a better feeling than when your makeup goes on perfectly smooth, and these brushes will get the job done. This amazing collection comes with brushes for all your facial makeup needs – foundation, concealer, powder, blush, and contour. It also comes with a really cute black leather makeup bag!

At retail, this whole collection would cost you $131. But today you can grab it for only $30! I can't believe this deal is even real, how amazing is that price?! That's four brushes PLUS a super nice makeup bag for basically the price of one brush. Jaw-dropping. Not to mention, your purchase will ALSO be donating $21 to Cancer and Careers, AND you will be receiving the “thank you” beauty tote (minimum value of $150) in addition to your bareMinerals collection. WINS all around.

5. L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream

L'Occitane is a tried and true brand that I have loved for YEARS and years. Their hand cream is super heavy duty and actually WORKS on dry, cracking hands. I would know because I definitely am prone to have dry skin and this stuff works like a dream.

I love that their formula is specifically made for hands so that it's super moisturizing without being greasy! Another fun trick is that you can totally use this on your elbows, or even under your nose if you have redness from tissue-blowing during allergy season, or when you have a cold.

This hand cream has such a fresh and clean scent that everyone loves. Sometimes hand creams can have a super feminine scent, but I love that this formula is simple and clean and great for even your most rugged, manly-man!

The L'Occitane 5.2 oz Hand Cream runs for $29, but at QVC you can split that payment up into three teeny-tiny payments of $9.67! I LOVE that QVC gives that option if you want to snag this quick for under $10, and then pay the rest over the next couple months (with 0% interest!). Savvy, and convenient! (NOTE: this product is NOT included in the Beauty with Benefits campaign.)

6. BECCA Hyrda-Mist Set & Refresh Powder

If you have dry skin like me, this is THE setting powder for you! This is one of the few setting powders in the world that doesn't make my face look dry or cake-y, and it really does set my makeup SO well. It has a silky-smooth, invisible finish, so you don't look like you're wearing a powder at all.

This product is comfortable, ultra-fine, lightweight, and it blurs dry fine lines and imperfections – exactly what you want from a setting powder! I love to reapply this throughout the day to rejuvenate my makeup. It's really great for when you're traveling, too!

This BECCA Hydra-Mist Refresh Powder runs for $39, but I love that it is one of the products donated for the Beauty with Benefits campaign! So not only are you getting an amazing product – but you are also getting a gift bag of beauty products worth at least $150, AND $27.30 of your purchase will automatically be donated to Cancer and Careers. SUCH a great purchase, for ALL the reasons!

And if you want to spread the payment love for this amazing setting powder, you can make it yours for only $7.80 today! Five simple payments of $7.80, and you get to enjoy it all along the way. AMAZING.

Luxury beauty for less – and for a great cause!

Luxury beauty products are even BETTER when you know you got them for an amazing deal, and when you know that most of your pennies are going to charity. That's when you can feel really good about treating yourself! And BONUS: if it’s your first time shopping at QVC, you can use the code NEW for $15 off your first purchase of $50 or more, or you can use code HELLO10 for $10 off your second purchase of $25 or more.

Don't forget, when you buy an item that is part of the Beauty with Benefits campaign, you are donating 70% of your purchase price to Cancer and Careers! And as a thank you, you will get a super sweet beauty tote with a value of at least $150. So much to LOVE at QVC right now – happy shopping!
