It might feel like we just left summer behind, but with a new chill in the air, it’s time to prepare for the best shopping holiday event: Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Every year, as we’re busy digesting our Thanksgiving dinner, we get treated with weekend-long savings, where you can shop everything from luggage deals to Amazon must-haves. But one of the best categories to shop is Black Friday beauty deals.
Whether you’re in the market for a new discounted hair tool, a viral lip oil, or just a best-rated everyday concealer, Black Friday and Cyber Monday consistently pull through with major savings. This also makes it a great time to stock up on some stocking stuffers or major gifts for your loved ones. But why wait till November? Right now, several retailers and brands are offering early discounts, so you can get a head start on must-have deals.
Is Black Friday a good time to buy beauty products?
It absolutely is. Every Black Friday, nearly every major beauty retailer and small brand participates, offering major discounts, even on some viral products that almost never go on sale, like the Dyson Coralle Straightener–which is currently 20 percent off.
Which retailers have the best Black Friday beauty deals?
When it comes to where to shop for the best deals, bigger is often better. While direct-to-consumer brands like Glossier often have fantastic savings events of their own, bigger retailers like Sephora, Nordstrom, and Ulta often offer the largest discounts.
When can I shop Black Friday beauty deals?
Officially, Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales will begin the Friday after Thanksgiving (November 24th-November 27th), but right now, even large retailers are offering early discounts. We’ll keep you updated here on all the best savings as we get closer to November.
Sephora’s sales are always hush-hush until they arrive, but judging from last year, we’re optimistic that we can look forward to massive savings again in November. But who wants to wait that long?
