You can also shop through Ebates, which will help you save anywhere from 3-15% depending on the merchant.

  1. Mairyn

    This is probably a dumb question (forgive me, I’m not in the US) but what IS Black Friday?

  2. Rita

    Christine, do you know if these apply to international orders (I’m thinking about theBalm)?

    • theBalm’s might since they ship internationall via their own website, but I doubt they apply if the site has a specific international site e.g.

  3. Libby

    First of all, thank you for posting these. I’m excited to start shopping. But, my question pertains to the Ebates site. I’ve never used it before, and I was wondering if I use it for Sephora do I still get my sephora beauty points or is it just the cash back from Ebates?

  4. Dana

    Wow! 40% off at theBalm!!!! Thanks for posting these!!!

  5. I can see where some of these sites will crash with crazyness…..great for ebay sellers.

  6. Alyssa

    for the tokidoki pallet I tried viewing it on the sephora website but it only showed 4 eyeshadows

    • I’m going off of what Sephora listed :)

    • Mango the mango

      I think it means each palette does have 4 eyeshadows, but there will be 5 Cromatico palettes eligible: Polpettina, Bastardino, Adios, Mozzarella, and Adieu. I’m guessing Diamante won’t be part of the $10 promotion because it’s currently listed as $25 while the other five are $19.

      I don’t work for Sephora though, so this is pure conjecture on my part, lol!

  7. Nathalie

    No Kate Sommerville coupons this year? :-(

  8. I already have my lists ready to go! Happy Shopping!

  9. Royal & Langnickel will be having a 2 brush set for sale on Cyber Monday for $60 each compared to their full price of $120.

  10. Audrey

    I NEEDED this list, lol. Thank you!

  11. Nubia136

    Smashbox is having their “Friends and Family Sale” 20% off (Code SBXFF11).

  12. Sabrinna

    Inglot cosmetics just announced this on their FB page : ” INGLOT COSMETICS ARE GIVING THANKS THIS THANKSGIVING

    I have no idea if theres a code though. I just asked.

    • That’s good to hear – because the only Black Friday offer I received from Inglot was for in-stores only, and I don’t think it was a % off either.

    • Leslie

      I came here looking to post this deal too. It’s on their website! Really exciting for those of us nowhere near an Inglot store.

      • Sabrinna

        yep! and its starts 3 am EST and ends 3 am EST too :) going to buy some eyeshadows for my palette!

        • Yazmin

          Anyone know if the discount is already built into the products price? I have items in my cart, checking out and being asked for payment information, but there’s no indication that the 15% discount has been applied

          • Nubia136

            Me too! I am wondering the same thing. I am ready to hit “enter” but I don’t see ANY indication that there is a discount in the prices.

            • Ebokee

              I’m in the same boat as you two. Has anyone figured it out yet?

            • Dinitchka

              I too am wondering about the 15% off discount. I see the free shipping. When I call (1x Fri and 1x today) I get the following message “Voice messaging service not activated.” I have sent 2 messages via their website and no response.

              If anyone has made their order and it shows the 15% off, could you please advise here.

              I’ve not tried Inglot and this is an awesome deal not to pass up.


            • Manal

              yes it’s already included, the eye shadows for freedom system are usually 5 and selling for 4.25 which is 15% off.

    • leila

      me too…want to order but no inglot code

  13. Angelcat47

    Get a free deluxe sample of Cleansing Water with any purchase at with code Rachel.

    • Is that a Black Friday deal? Do you know the expiration?

      • Angelcat47

        I’m sorry,I don’t know the expiration date,but it’s not just Black Friday or Cyber Monday, Christine;I already deleted it.But I looked it up again before deleting,and realized it’s with a $25.00 or higher purchase.

        I have another sale,though:
        SpaLook….20% off site wide with code Joy20…sale ends 12/05/11.
