I tell you, every week flies by for me in the winter! Every Thursday evening, as I put together Free for Haul Friday, I have a moment of, “No way, it’s Friday already? Wasn’t it JUST Friday?!” It’s no surprise that Laura Mercier’s Highlight 01 topped in as one of this week’s best products–and if you check out the comments on the review, many readers agreed (it’s an often-raved about product that I picked up to try for myself during Sephora’s sale).
This post seems like a good place to plug my little holiday writing stint over at eBay I’ve been writing guides and creating collections (curating products under a theme). I hope you’ll check them out, and do let me know if there’s a topic you’d like me to write about! I’ve been thinking of writing one on wearing gold/silver eyeshadow and how to wear glitter.
I can barely find brands like Wet ‘n’ Wild and NYX in drugstores, though I know they have distribution in some! I’d honestly love to see some of the overseas “drugstore” brand equivalents in U.S. drugstores (Sleek Makeup comes to mind).
Here’s the list of $10 deals you’ll find at Sephora on Black Friday! Most deals have a value of $15 to $20 with a few above that mark. These are usually great for trying out products in deluxe travel-sizes (also nice for traveling if you need smaller tubes/bottles).
These deals are available online and in-store. I’ve pulled out the size of included products when I was able to read/identify in the photo, and I’ve tried to calculate value as much as possible. I have reached out to some brands to try to get more insight as to the shades in the sets, and if I get info back, I will update.

Weekend plans: Hang new curtains in the guest room (the ones I had before were 96″ and I need 108″ at the new house). We need to pop by Target to get curtain holdbacks for guest and family rooms, too. Otherwise, the usual: photograph, swatch, edit, blog!
