For U.S. readers, this is the year that Black Friday has really begun to have a real impact in the beauty department. Really, it’s overwhelming.

Here are some that caught my eye:

Nordstrom has various value sets collected on this page. This includes Burberry, Estee Lauder, Laura Mercier and many more. Also, buy 2 nail polishes from Deborah Lippmann, butter LONDON, THE NEW BLACK or Nordstrom Nail Color and receive a third polish from the same brand free (no code needed). There are also brand-specific gifts with purchase listed here.

Bergdorf has the Beauty in the Bag event with many lines that have a gift with purchase. This includes Edward Bess, Chantecaille, Sulwhasoo, and more (click to enlarge or go to this page):

Saks has $25 gift cards with $100 purchase (ends today) with code Beauty12:

Omorovicza has 30% off from Friday through midnight on Monday. This is a spectacular discount for a top shelf line:

Laura Mercier is giving away free products with a Design Your Own Palette promotion.

Starting Sunday, Cult Beauty will be running a free worldwide standard shipping promotion through Friday 30th Nov. (Christmas gifts that ship for free!) Now is your chance to try Rodin, Aesop , Ellis Faasand other cult brands. Code NOVEMBER (excludes Escentric Molecules).

Other promos du jour:

  • Origins online has $10 off and free ship with $25 purchase.

  • Sephora has a dizzying number of items discounted. Things are selling out early, so they may not be here if you’re reading this later in the day.
  • Ulta has massive door busters here.
  • Don’t forget to use Ebates–double cash back at over 500 sites today.

This was my email box this morning, summarized for you here. I hope all the links work, if not my apologies as I’m just running through the entire lot.

Cafe Makeup hopes that you have a fun and productive day. Driving back from the movies last night at 10 pm, Liz and I saw that parking lot at our local Target literally full.  For my part, we’re braving the crowds to get a new washer and dryer as our gave out yesterday after running nearly continuously for the past 10 years (no exaggeration, we got our money’s worth). Perhaps we’ll see you out there in the sea of people. Wish us luck and the same to you!

  1. I bought the foaming cleanser I’d been eying from Omorovicza. I had bought the thermal cleansing balm from Sephora during VIB so I think I’ve done well. 🙂 Too many nice deals, it’s hard to decide!

  2. Here, in Spain, I die from envy of your Black Friday…..

  3. Hi Amy. I just want to let you know that YSL is also offering a 20% off discount + free shipping on their website. It’s good until Sunday 11/25. I took advantage of it and bought a couple items from their holiday collection.

  4. Oh, I love the look of the Burberry set, would love to try those 🙂
