Face Paintoos: Easy Face Painting at Home + $2.50/1 Printable Coupon!

If you’re a parent, you’ve no doubt waited in line at a neighborhood carnival in the face painting line. My kids know that if we don’t show up early, there is no way we are waiting in line for face painting because it takes FOREVER.

Here’s an option for face painting at home…even if you have no artistic skills! (Raising my hand here.) Face Paintoos will spice up your next kid party without having to hire a professional artist OR figure it out yourself.

The #FacePaintRevolution makes face designs fun, easy and long-lasting. All you have to do is apply the template like you would a temporary face design for a smudge and transfer-proof design. There are many fun designs to choose from with three different packs – Pet, Wild, and Magical.

The removal process is super easy – just use one of the remover wipes that are included in the package to wipe off the Face Paintoos.

Right now you can print a coupon to save $2.50 off your in-store purchase of Face Paintoos. (These are sold at Target and Walmart stores.) I found them at Target for $9.99 per pack of 5, so just $7.49 with the $2.50/1 printable coupon!


We Love These Cheap Amazon Leggings Just as Much as Lululemon!

More Amazon

What woman doesn’t love a great pair of leggings?!

They’re comfortable, easy to wear, and one of our most tried and true go-to pieces of clothing, which is why we’re so excited to share an affordable pair that our whole team has fallen in love with! Legging-wearing women, unite!

Say hello to these amazing high-waist tummy-control leggings from Amazon:

These power flex, lightweight leggings come in so many different colors — similar to higher-end brands that you probably drool over. Their neutral options are great to go with anything you already have in your wardrobe and their colorful options are muted enough to still keep you looking chic while still making a statement. 🙌

Not only are they gorgeous, but they’re also designed to LAST! This brand has made it a point to manufacture great leggings that are durable, thick, squat-proof, buttery-soft, and will last for many years of workouts and errands to come! No more embarrassing see-through leggings, ladies! (And no…I’m not speaking from experience…😏).

As a bonus, they even come with a convenient, hidden pocket which is an innovative way to either store your house key or credit cards so no more needing to haul around a purse! 👏

If you remember when we compared other Amazon clothes to Lululemon, these leggings were one of Collin’s favorite, go-to finds that started our whole team trend. 😍

“My friend who is a Lululemon ambassador said these leggings are identical!” – Alana

To make these even more versatile, the brand even offers a cropped version, so you can be sure to wear your favorite new leggings even during warmer months and all your steamy, hot yoga sessions.

The shorter ladies on our team even prefer to order this style so they get a better fit on the length!

“These leggings are a great inexpensive activewear find! I ordered a pair in the cropped style after Collin had raved about them and they didn’t disappoint. I love that they come in so many colors as well so I can add a pop of color to my collection of mostly black leggings. I work out in them frequently and they’ve held up great in the wash! I plan to buy a pair of of the ankle-length next.” – Emily

You can also scoop up their genius, new leggings with deep pockets on the side, perfect for sliding in your smartphone, earbuds, or other small necessities you need when working out. 🙌 Talk about life-changing!

“I have two pairs of these leggings and they’re the first that I ever owned with pockets! Needless to say, all of my other ones without pockets are going bye-bye, I love these so much!” – Erica

“I absolutely LOVE this brand of leggings! They have a lush, buttery feel to them and remind me of the original Lularoe leggings when they first came out. The ones without pockets offer more of a compression, which I really love wearing, too.” – Alana 

In summary, here’s a list of all the things we can’t stop obsessing over with these leggings by 90 degrees:

    • Machine washable
    • They don’t chafe
    • Thick and durable material
    • Buttery soft
    • High-rise fit
    • Slimming waistband
    • Great overall compression
    • Hidden key pocket
    • Great for every day or working out
    • 30-day, full-money-back warranty
    • Stylish just like high-end brands

Still on the fence? Here’s what a couple of other reviewers had to say about their leggings:

“I read about these leggings and had to try them out for myself! I’m a fitness instructor and take my pants very seriously. Since a mirror is behind me and that is largely what my class sees I can say, these are indeed ‘squat proof’ and very comfortable. I will definitely be buying more colors to add to my repertoire, for this price, one can actually afford to do that!” – Daniela ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

“This brand will always be my favorite! I wear a size 7 in pants and I’m 5’7″ and 133 lbs. I can wear a small in these leggings, but as you can see, the leggings are designed to go slightly higher in the ankle area which means the smalls are even shorter, therefore I continue to purchase the mediums. The ones with the side pockets fit my cell phone with an otter box perfectly and they totally control the top of my tummy too. Squat proof. Silky material. I’ll continue to only purchase this brand!” – Chelsey ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Bonus Shopping Tip!

    How Does Brad’s Deals Vet Sellers and Deals?


    By Casey Runyan on February 24, 2020

    Consumers first, always. It is our number one core value as a company, and it’s our promise to you. We always consider the best interests of consumers when we decide to work with a retailer and when we post a deal.

    Online retail has expanded massively, and not all expansion has been a good thing. With increasing frequency, we hear from people who have had disappointing online shopping experiences. At Brad’s Deals, we want to help you have less of those. Our team of deal editors are shopping experts that are trained to detect when something about a retailer or a deal is suspicious. We also have high standards for high-risk product categories

    Assessing Retailers

    A deal editor vets every retailer to ensure that they are up to our standards before we post a deal.

    • We review their site, making note of bad design, typos, and other signs that they are unprofessional.
    • We research their reputation on review sites and social media. It’s okay to see complaints, as long as we see them being dealt with properly. A lack of any complaints on Facebook can make us suspicious that the company is deleting comments rather than dealing with them.
    • Editors are trained to recognize counterfeit goods, and we will not post for any company that sells them. If we have questions about how a retailer acquired branded products, we will ask them to provide us with documentation on the source of these products for verification.

    We follow a similar process for third-party sellers on marketplaces like Amazon and Walmart.

    • We research sellers and dig into their feedback. It isn’t just a low percentage of negative reviews that we look at, but we also want to see what types of complaints they get. “They took my money and never sent me anything” is much worse than “The package was hard to open.”
    • We check seller ratings on Fakespot to analyze reviews for a number of marketplaces, rate sellers and products by their reviews, and look for any signs of fraud or manipulation. For more information about how we use Fakespot, read about the Fakespot Verified flag you see on some of our deals.
    • We verify sellers are authorized to sell the products they are selling. For example, if a seller has a number of name-brand TVs, we want to make sure they are authorized to sell those brands.


    Assessing Deals

    Every single deal we post is evaluated by highly trained deal editors. We check that the products are the lowest price anywhere, and we make sure it is something we’d use ourselves or recommend to a friend or family member.

    • We perform a price check to confirm the product isn’t available anywhere else at a lower price. This can involve multiple searches because of differences in product names at different retailers.
    • We consider shipping cost when performing price comparisons.
    • We are also mindful of other offers, such as gifts with purchase, cashback offers, and rebates that may impact the overall value.
    • We look at our historic records to make sure it’s deal-worthy pricing, taking seasonality into account.
    • We only post products that we believe have a decent amount of inventory, however we don’t always know inventory numbers, and we make an educated guess.

    Any product that is being sold by a third-party on an online marketplace goes through an extra level of scrutiny.

    • We run all products through Fakespot.
    • The product must have a C rating or higher.
    • We have special vetting rules in place for high-risk categories. These are things that are consumed (like vitamins), applied to your skin (like eye cream), for children (like toys), and electronics.
    • For most high-risk categories being sold by a third-party, we require an “A” rating. In the case of electronics with lithium batteries, we will not post any of these products from a third-party seller.

    Our team is committed to creating the consumer advantage and providing our readers with great deals so they can buy with confidence. We don’t claim to be perfect, but we are real people working hard to give consumers the upper hand.

    Page Speed Optimization On WordPress – SEO Technical Audit Part 1

    Part 1 of a new series Completing A SEO Technical Audit begins with a popular topic Page Speed WordPress Optimization.  Its popular for good reason, in an article I note an example where a site ranks higher on mobile search than its bigger, higher DA competitor because of page speed

    The video walks through using to speed up a client site.  In the video we also use Think With Google and put a plugin called JetPack into place to serve as our free CDN option.

    I don’t usually use Jetpack and prefer Cloudflare for the CDN but in this site’s case I lacked access to the domain DNS servers which hamper Cloudflare installation. 

    Jetpack is a plugin of last resort, and I honestly don’t recommend it.  Its broken more sites than helped in my experience.
