Deals and Discounts
It’s been a long, relaxing holiday weekend here at ALU HQ. We hosted a pretty low key Thanksgiving with my parents and instead of fighting the crowds, I shopped Black Friday from the comfort of my couch. After an intimate fondue night at home with friends, I’m recharging for the week ahead.
That includes preparing for the biggest online shopping day of the year, Cyber Monday. Again, the beauty brands are pulling out all the stops when it comes to online deals and I’ve curated some of the best offers out there. So, if you aren’t shopped out after the weekend, let’s get ready to do this thing!

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 Discounts, Doorbusters, Gifts With Purchase and more to share with you. Most are available online though a few may require fighting the masses.
Time for an admission. For a while, I had a slight addiction to flash sale sites. Gilt being my Achilles heel. Though to be fair, I’ve used the heck out of everything I bought there. Heys luggage, Rebecca Minkoff bags, a Cuisinart Egg Cooker (don’t get me started on my love of that little gadget).
Look, I was raised by a woman who taught me the joy of an amazing sale so even though I’m on a no-buy at the moment, I had to cave when Deborah Lippmann appeared on Gilt today. Especially when I saw Ray of Light in some of the sets. It’s one I’ve been lemming for a while now.
You can’t beat the prices and if you don’t own one of my fave Lippmann glitters, Today Was A Fairytale, now is your chance. Not to mention the Mermaids and Staccato polishes among others. Some of the shades are selling out so if you want to get in on this, run, don’t walk to Gilt.com.

ULTA’s 21 Days of Beauty kicked off last Sunday and today’s big deal is just for us polish fanatics.
Which two shades do you plan to pick up? What are your favorite bL polish colors?
