Black Friday is swiftly approaching ladies, and we've already got our game plan ready for all of the best beauty deals around. We're going to hit those stores and hit them hard next week, then take to the Web on Cyber Monday and sweep through all those deals, too. Yes, we'll admit it: We're totes being selfish with this one and keeping the goods for ourselves because some of these deals are just too good to pass up. And if you want in on the action, we'll do you the service of telling you about all of the best beauty deals in stores and online for this season. But that's about all we're going to give you.
For real though, we're not sharing our products. Like, ever. #sorrynotsorry
What's Sephora Got for Us?
Sephora's got an insane amount of deals happening in stores and online Black Friday, but our fave is the $10 deals it has with kits featuring some of our fave products. All of these kits are limited edition, coming out just for the season and hitting the shelves for unbelievably low prices. The selection is pretty extensive, including Tarte Easy Glowing Deluxe Cheek Set with a sample size of its famous Cheek Stain as well as the Too Faced Sexy Lids and Lashes Set, featuring a sample of its Better Than Sex Mascara. Then, there's the Buxom Strut Your Stuff Lip and Eye Trio, Tarte Fanciful Favorites Deluxe Discovery Set featuring its signature Maracuja Oil, and Urban Decay Triple Threat Travel Pencil Set Smoky Matte. Right now, these sets are not available on Sephora's site but can be viewed on Sephora's To Go App along with more updates on Black Friday deals.
We've already downloaded it and are watching it obsessively.
Black Friday's Best
Other beauty brands are discounting their own stuff or offering free gifts on their sites or at other retailers. Which do we highly recommend?
Anastasia Beverly Hills: The brand that pretty much defines #browsonfleek is sharing some serious brow love this Black Friday. On its site Friday and Cyber Monday, Anastasia Beverly Hills is offering 25 percent off all of its brow products including the brow gel.
ARCONA: The brand adored by celebs like Rachel Zoe and Regina King is giving you 40 percent off your purchase of $200 or more, with free shipping on orders over $200 on its site Black Friday through Saturday, Nov. 28.
NYX Cosmetics: Our fave drugstore brand is giving away a free High Voltage lipstick with any purchase made on its site or a retailer selling its stuff. Yes, please!
Bliss: One of the best skincare brands around for spa-like luxury is giving you 30 percent off your entire online purchase Black Friday through Cyber Monday when using the code Dazzle30 at checkout. And if your online shopping bag is $75 or more, you get a free holiday gift bag when using the code brilliant15. A purchase of $150 or more will get you a deluxe gift that includes Micromagic Microdermabrasion treatment, Triple Oxygen Ex-'glow'-sion, Fabulips Sugar Lip Scrub and Fabulips Softening Lip Balm in a limited edition Kate Spade cosmetic bag. That's a $176 value right there, and you won't find it online until Black Friday. Body butters, here we come!
Laura Geller: Our favorite Baked Bronzer is finally going on sale for Black Friday. When doing your shopping online, Laura Geller is giving you 25 percent off your entire order with the code PREVIEW25 and 30 percent off your order of $100+ with the code PREVIEW30. If you spend over $50, you will get a free three-piece gift set, including a Mini Fortifying Lashes Eyelash Primer, Mini Color Drenched Lip Gloss in Café Au Lait and Mini Spackle Original Under Make-Up Primer.
Urban Decay: Remember that Vault II everyone was screaming about last month that nearly broke the Internet? Remember how all hope was lost of ever getting your hands on it unless you sold your soul to eBay?
Well, it's coming back on Cyber Monday. You have our permission to flip out now.
Urban Decay's site Cyber Monday, Vault II featuring Naked Palettes 1 to 3, Naked Smoky and Naked Basics 1 and 2 will be available again to buy for $165. We recommend getting on that as soon as the clock strikes midnight on Cyber Monday because it sold out in a few hours the first time.
Anastasia Beverly Hills: The brow brand is extending its deals to Cyber Monday, giving you its lip glosses for $9.99 (originally $16). Anastasia is also bundling together its Illuminator plus its Brush #23 for just $26!
Laura Geller: The brand will be extending the love on Cyber Monday, giving you 50 to 75 percent off select products online, 45 percent off orders $135+ and a free large foundation brush with a sample of Deluxe Spackle Supercharged on orders $50 or over.
Yeah, so that's about all we're going to give you. We won't expect you to share all your goods if you don't expect us to share any of ours. Deal? Cool. Happy shopping, beauty darlings!
