Two of the biggest shopping days of the year (Black Friday and Cyber Monday) are within our grasp but the sheer amount of deals out there are overwhelming, to say the least.

Raise your hand if you’ve ever camped out for a Black Friday Doorbuster. I’m totally guilty of sitting outside a Best Buy for a giant TV. Yep, I was that person.

This year I’m hoping to do most of my shopping from home so I’ve compiled a list of the best beauty DiscountsDoorbusters, Gifts With Purchase and more to share with you. Most are available online though a few may require fighting the masses.


If you love the Alterna Caviar line as much as I do, this deal is for you. Get the 3 Steps to Flawless Hair Kit with shampoo, conditioner, and CC cream for only $10 (originally $26) exclusively at


butter LONDON

Get the Fashion Size Duo With Slapper and  Knackered for just $10. They are also offering 20% OFF and 50% OFF all Last-Call items. Just use the code CYBER2013 at



Buy 1, get one 50% off, plus get a $10 gift card! Offer valid 11/27 through 11/30 at with coupon code BLKFRI and a minimum $30 purchase. Plus you get FREE SHIPPING on purchases over $35, after discount.


Voted by fans as their most loved LORAC eye shadow, the PRO Palette shade, Pewter, is being released on its own with a complimentary 3-in-1 Waterproof EyeLiner in Ultra Black. The set will retail for $10 (a $36 value) exclusively at


And at the LORAC The Stylist Palette in Solid Gold and Platinum will retail for $12/ea.


Last year it was Grey Friday nail polish, this year it’s Hautecore black matte lipstick. The LE shade is being sold for one day only, online at $15/ea. If you’re intimidated by black lipstick, check MAC Senior Artist Keri Blair’s more subtle way to wear it.



I found this deal on Nouveau Cheap and just had to share. Melmers, the Michael’s equivalent of the IKEA Helmer, will be on sale for 60% OFF. That’s craziness!  So if you’re short on nail polish storage, get your butt to Michael’s and stock up.


If you want to know where I’ll be on Black Friday, it’s Nordstrom. They have a RIDICULOUS list of Doorbusters and Gifts With Purchase this year and I want so so many of them. They’re also available online at with FREE SHIPPING. Here’s just a few worth checking out

ULTA is offering a number of beauty deals, including their blockbuster makeup kit. I love me a blockbuster and have indulged in the Sephora ones in the past. This one looks like a winner as well.

      Excellent! I hope you love all your new beauty goodies. I lightly tapped Hautecore on my lips and it looks really cool. I don’t think I could wear it full on though.

  2. Galaxia says:

    The Butter London, Zoya and OPI deals are certainly my favorites :) Thanks for sharing!

    Placed my Butter London order! I’m super excited to finally try their polishes. I wanted to let you know that the code for that company is CYBER13. I also thought it was CYBER2013. It wouldn’t accept my code, then I corrected it.

      Thanks for letting me know Chris! The email I got had the wrong code. Glad you were still able to place your order.
