How to get your fave products for less
Black Friday – a day of fistfights, arrests, and many a frenzy of rage – is here once again. Today will likely see shoppers rummaging amid hundreds of already opened swatched lipsticks and if you’re not smart (and an excessive spender), often Black Friday is to be followed by Broke Saturday. If that’s not for you, fear not because we’ve got the best beauty deals that’ll save you from the chaos of shoppers and your bank balance from the chaos of your shopping.
Although we don’t want to encourage and spread the gospel of capitalism, the must-haves must be had! And like The Ordinary’s discount – that is available every day of the month other than today – there are special offers that do more than just get you your fave products for less.
So, here’s our round-up of some of the best deals.
A brand that is rarely discounted, Glossier is giving us 20 per cent off everything for its annual site-wide sale, as well as in the pop-up stores in London and Austin, Texas. From Friday November 29 through to Monday December 2, you can grab some of your faves at a very happy price, including the Lip Gloss Trio, the All Balm Set, and the Colourslide Trio + Blade.
The brand behind the cutest pimple patches is offering 20 per cent off its products this Black Friday. Not only are they changing the way we see our skin but they’re doing so all while saving us our pennies. Although these wondrous patches do really work, let’s not forget that acne is completely normal and nothing to be embarrassed about! If you want to get rid though, this is your chance to steal a bargain.
Cult Beauty fulfills its namesake as our go-to for the very best in beauty – featuring the likes Anastasia Beverly Hills, Huda Beauty, and FOREO. This year, the online retailer is slashing prices up to 40 per cent, so you can now grab the ABH Dipbrow Gel or the Rivera Eyeshadow Palette for discounted rates. If you’ve recently got into meditative beauty and you’re in need of the ultimate relaxation aid, try Yu Ling Rollers’ Rose Quartz Facial Roller.
The OG of the beauty world, MAC, is taking 20 per cent off all make-up and skincare products this Black Friday until December 4. From galactic glitter to the top-selling strobe cream, you can get your glow on this party season with the discounts in all freestanding stores and online at MAC. There’s the added bonus of a free make-up bag if you spend over £45. What more could you ask for?
Huda Beauty, a firm fave among editors, bloggers, and beauty lovers, is giving beauty brands around the globe a run for their money with their offering of up to an enormous 60 per cent off its products. You can now bag yourself the Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette in Coral, the 3D Highlighter Palette in Bronze Sands, and the Life Liner Duo Pencil & Liquid Eyeliner for ridiculously low prices. These are some of the best beauty bargains out there so hurry, we’re expecting them to sell out and fast.
Charlotte Tilbury is sticking to the ‘go big or go home’ rule with its offerings this sale season. Living up to the high standards of last year (which saw a pretty high standard set), Charlotte Tilbury is slashing prices on selected make-up and skincare products and sets by 30 per cent. Not to mention that Cyber Monday will see an additional 10 per cent cut off prices.
Between November 29 and December 2, you can enjoy 20 per cent off all NARS Cosmetics products (online and in NARS boutiques). Bag a Christmas gift for someone special or just treat yourself to some of the cult classics like Orgasm Blush and the Radiant Creamy Concealer. If you’re a savvy shopper and spend £150 or more, you will receive an elevated discount of 30 per cent off of your shopping basket. Londoners, you can also receive early access to the in-store Black Friday deals from November 26 by signing up to the NARS boutique mailing lists.
From fragrance to electricals, make-up and skincare, Boots has it all. From now until December 3, you can expect big discounts across some of the best brands in beauty, including L’Oréal, No7, Sleek, and YSL. If you’ve been gagging over the Fenty Beauty Moroccan Spice Eyeshadow Palette since its arrival in 2018, you’re in luck because that’s included in the Black Friday deals too.
Oskia – the British nutri-cosmeceutical brand that specialises in bio-cellular skin nutrition – is taking 25 per cent off every product on its entire website. This includes the limited edition Renaissance Body Scrub, the Super-C Smart Nutrient Beauty Capsules, and its entire new Christmas offering. The company is also donating 100 per cent of the profits to Bloody Good Period, a charity working to end period poverty across the UK by providing menstrual products to refugees, asylum seekers, and those who can’t afford them.
Avoid the festive stress and grab the best pre-Christmas indulgences with Feel Unique’s top brand offers that include a free gift and 30 per cent off Urban Decay, 19 per cent off GHD, and 25 per cent off Kiko Milano. In addition to that, from November 25 to December 2, there will be new deals added daily. So, keep your eyes peeled.
