Happy Thanksgiving! I’ll be heading out soon to a sister’s house to join 30 other family members and friends for a Thanksgiving meal. After the last bite is taken, an intense strategy session will ensue to plot our after-Thanksgiving holiday shopping. Here are a few Black Friday sales and holiday gift giving ideas I’m especially excited about this season…
Nordstrom Rack: Take 25% off any one item. While not technically a beauty item, there’s a Michael Kors motorcycle-inspired leather jacket that’s been calling (er, yelling) my name. This coupon will save me a cool $50! And when searching for great jewelry, I always first scope-out Nordstrom Rack. Sale is in-store only, print coupon to redeem at checkout.
ULTA offers blockbusters on Friday and Saturday, including this Tarte A List trio. I recently started using Tarte and really like the quality, pretty colors and long-wear.
It Cosmetics is 35% off everything online through November 30. The year 2011 introduced me to It Cosmetics and it immediately became a staple in my beauty routine. Everyday, without fail, I use the Bye Bye Under Eye concealer, Bye Bye Pores finishing powder and Nail Love cuticle oil.
Smashbox: Take 20% off any purchase today through November 28. I swear by Brow Tech To-Go, another everyday must, and Limitless Eyeliner, which stays on all-day and comes with a built-in sharpener. The colors are both on-trend and wearable.
Mally Beauty/QVC: Pre-order Mally’s Favorite Things 12-Piece Collection ($59.76). It is the QVC Today’s Special Value for December 9, but you can order now through this special link. I own enough Mally products to probably qualify as addicted, but unwrapping this kit would make a splendid Christmas! Packaged in three sets for gift giving to others or yourself. Mally’s QVC collections are hands-down the best value for wonderfully formulated products in all of beauty!
The Mally Beauty website offers free shipping on Black Friday. I often pass on ordering less expensive beauty items online because of shipping costs, so this makes it much easier to stock up.
