Beauty Bets: Black Friday Edition

Surprise, surprise—I don’t do Black Friday. Never have, probably never will. I like to shop on Tuesdays, at 10 am, when it’s just me and a bunch of marked-down, freshly folded merchandise. But here we are, less than two days before THE day, and I just know that some of you are plotting your routes, setting out your cute-but-comfortable flats, and filling up your water bottles. So I peeked at the sales, and I jotted down a few that are, admittedly, kind of amazing—including my own. Yes, I’m just full of contradictions. Blame it on Mercury being in retrograde.

November 25
An INSANE 40% off all purchases of $100 or more, plus free shipping on all orders $200 or more. If I had to use one skincare line for the rest of my life, this would be it. And it NEVER goes on sale.

I had never heard of this “social” beauty site, but on Cyber Monday you’ll receive 40% back on all purchases, in the form of BloomDollars that can be used toward future purchases. Unlike many big retailers, there are no brand or product exclusions, and the list includes both drugstore and high-end lines so it’s definitely worth taking a gander. Also, free shipping on purchases of $49 or more.

Free standard shipping on all orders + 3 Best-Selling Treats. I’ll be picking up a new pot of longwear gel eyeliner in espresso ink. It draws the cleanest, prettiest line.
