Deal Alert: NYX Cosmetics sale (May 15)

EDIT: 5/17/11 11:32AM PST
This is the latest update from their Facebook website :
For those of you who are still interested in making a purchase with NYX, they have asked that you send an email to them for your 50% OFF discount code and free shipping to feedback@nyxcosmetics.com

Personally, I will not be purchasing from them for a while. I do not understand why only a handful of people were able to take advantage of the $1.20 sale, while others waited patiently for their turn. They've continually said it was due to high traffic issues. They also will not honor anything that was stuck in your shopping cart at the $1.20 price during the "12 hour sale".

It's hard to want to shop with a company that does not seem to value their loyal customers. I've read many countless upset tweets and messages on their Facebook and Twitter page with no actual response. This whole thing turned out to be a whole mess...

/end rant

WOW! It has been such a ridiculously long night. Some of us have been waiting since 12PM PST to get our hands on the sale, some of us even made sure we were off work for this. Others decided to stay home instead of going out...

Throughout the beginning 5 hours, they kept tweeting "Be patient, it's going to be up soon"... and then even so much saying:

Well, then 5PM PST rolls around, and it still doesn't work.

It's about 3AM PST right now, and the sale is STILL not working properly. NYX Cosmetics has blamed it on "traffic".

The latest thing was this:

For those of you who are interested in shopping, maybe we will hear something tomorrow....
and NYX Cosmetics, what about those who do not because of this whole thing? I've never seen anything like this before... They've even said that they've planned for this months in advance. Sigh! Am I the only one who has not gotten a chance to purchase something??

If some of you were able to get through the website, please share with us your experience. :] I'd love to hear something happy right now.


NYX Cosmetics is having a sale on Sunday (May 15) from 12pm to 12am in celebration of their 12 year anniversary! There will be lots of goodies, starting at $1.20

Thanks for the tip, Thrifty Beauty Budgets and @tinabeana12!
