None. I stayed home and only went to the gym. Did not dare go to the store. Bought too much makeup this year. As for gift…havent figure that one out yet.

Now that’s discipline! Going to the gym after T Day and not buying anything?!? I bet you can also walk by a Cinnabon without ordering one.

I went to the gym too and didn’t set foot in a store on Black Friday. Thats amateur day at the malls, no thank you. But I shopped online, Giorgio Armani 20% off plus free shipping plus ebates.com, I went crazy. Got maestro foundation and concealer, lip maestro in 201 and 500, neo brown fall easy chic palette, a powder brush and a face brush. Can’t wait till they get here!

I didn’t buy any beauty-related items either, didn’t buy much at all, actually. for the two years before, I always saved up to load up on Sugarpill with their awesome discount

I didn’t buy anything during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales. I refuse to support Black Friday, especially when stores are now starting their Black Friday sales on Thanksgiving. I don’t really have anything against Cyber Monday, except that I don’t have much money right now to indulge in anything.

Yeah, I feel the same way about stores being open T Day–so wrong! The sales aren’t usually that good on Black Friday.

Beautybay had 20% so I bought a nail strengthener from OPI (I really need it), a hairbrush and a kit with five eyeliner pencils from Bare Minerals. I had earlier decided that if the kit was on sale – then I was allowed to buy it so just following my own rules. 🙂

I didn’t buy anything at all…I’ve been buying a lot the past several months and I felt guilty about it. So this month I’m on my first formal no-buy, I guess. I need to save up to get my first tattoo anyway!

I could´t resist the occ offer and eve pearl huge sales….I´m from czech republic so these brands are available only through online shopping. This is my firs time trying them so I can´t wait:)))

I actually took advantage of the NARS 20% off sale, thanks to your recent red lipstick posts! I’ll be taking advantage of the red lipglosses hopefully at the next Sephora sale.

My fiance bought so much stuff (some of it for me) that I got all my sticker shock vicariously through him. I’m notoriously frugal with money, so even a great deal gives me anxiety if it’s still a lot of money, lol. I didn’t spend a penny.

SO glad I’m not the only one!!! I ended up making a last minute Cyber Monday purchase at Inglot because I just couldn’t pass up every sale. Really excited to get my first Freedom palette though. 😀

I picked up the UD lip set, a mini Juicy Couture fragrance set from Kohls, and 24s from Inglot (the Inglot shipping just kills me, $7 for one es!)

I resisted the call with a little help in the form of a major upcoming bill. 😛 The NARS one was hard to pass up, though. I kept eying the big Warhol collector’s set, since it would be a pretty penny off with that discount!

I picked up the Benefit “pretty committee” set at Sephora and used the code for the mystery grab bag. I almost did an order from Too Faced, but eventually decided it wasn’t what I wanted.

I indulged in OCC’s promo for a free Triptych lip tar, but to be fair, I was on the brink of ordering from them anyway. Now I’m getting an extra gold lip tar, which means I’ll be making “holiday” versions of all my colours. Yay!

This is the first time that Canada has tried to match US sales, so it was quite overwhelming! This was also my first year actually going out the morning of =] Surprisingly I didn’t spend too much on makeup (Only the Sephora deals), but I did spend quite a bit on clothes (Lululemon, AE, VS) which turned out to be more expensive =\

I was at the mall from 8:00 to 9:00 friday and was completely overwhelmed. I got some nail polish for myself and then ventured in to buy some xmas ornaments, but by the time i had left the there were cars waiting in line for parking spots. too much for me. I skipped cyber monday deals. I was tempted but i have already spent so much money on other gifts

For myself, I picked up 2 of the Armani Lip Maestros (501 rosewood & 400 the red) and the Effetto Nude ETK quad.

For my co-workers – it’s always hard. Some you love, others… mmm not so much. But I try to spend $5 or less on each and be consistent. So, I placed my first order with Haus of Gloi and got them all Bubbling Scrubs and a whipped soap for myself. No Cyber sale, but I did buy them yesterday 😉

Took advantage of Coastal Scents and Sugarpill online. Stay clear of the mall all weekend as we are have a for a few stores taking advantage of the Black Friday hype in the US. 😉

In Canada we only have Boxing Day sales for years the day after Christmas as our sales up here.
