Hi. Blue mercury is having their holiday parties coming soon. Check out their events page on Some stores sell chanel and Trish mcevoy and Bobbi brown, as well as la mer and many other high end lines. Each store has a different date. You can presell ten days before the event. I stock up on chanel during this sale since it very rarely goes on sale. I’m not affiliated at all. Just hope to help

Ellen Avatar

I am so bad at converting times πŸ™ Lol I’m sorry! I live in Michigan (say Detroit), so should I check at midnight or at 9AM? Wasn’t sure what the final conclusion was haha sorry for not understanding time zones, with all these sales going on I need to brush up on it!


Sansu Avatar

Is the hourglass ambient lighting trio palette still available anywhere?please help me get one ,if anyone knows any site?Sorry Christine but i feel a lot of this committee as well as you have better idea of where to find beauty products:-)

Sofia Avatar

I was able to order one from the Hourglass counter at Bergdorf Goodman with complimentary shipping (I live on the West Coast) — I’d give them a call and see if they have any left. Good luck!

I literally gasped when I saw the UD Revolution Lipstick bundle!!!!! I only have drugstore lip products and have been wanting to venture out to high end brands and this formula/line is at the top of my list!!! Do you know if these are full size? OMG. I am trying not to get too excited. I hope they don’t sell out! I am definitely getting them!

I am also thinking about the Smoked Palette….hmmm…..I’d rather get the lipsticks…..

Monika Avatar

YEEEEEEEEE!! I’m so excited for the Urban Decay stuff this year. They really have been stepping up their Black Friday game lately, and I was hoping they’d do something with the Revolution lipsticks since they had that Super Saturated lip pencil bundle last year for $50 (which I loved). That set with the eyeliners and travel-sized products looks pretty awesome, too!

Jackie Avatar

I e-mailed them and the response was ” We do not have any plans at this time, but all sale announcements are always made on our Facebook page:”

and they linked the page /thebalm

They’re going to be on hautelook tomorrow though! The deals there tend to be very good but I’d have preferred to buy direct and said that in my e-mail which makes me feel like they aren’t but who knows they are probably trying to build suspense.

Veronica Avatar

Oh man, the Urban Decay lipstick deal hurts to read. XD I just bought new tires for my car, though, so I’ll be eschewing the Black Friday sales for now. I hope those who do go for it have fun! πŸ˜›

Jenny Avatar

Hi Christine! I am setting an alarm for 6am for the UD lipstick set! I do not own any of the UD lipsticks but do you feel like the colors are different enough to warrant buying the whole set? Jilted, f-bomb and catfight seemed like all reds to me and the other 3 were all nudes. I haven’t seen them in person so I’m wondering how different they actually look for you.

Veronica Avatar

F-Bomb is the only true red out of the bunch, IMO. When I swatched Jilted and Catfight in stores, they were more in the fuchsia range. (Jilted actually reminds me a lot of Revlon’s Wild Orchid, even down to the shimmer, maybe just a tad warmer/redder.)

Christine Avatar

Hi Sarah,

Everything I have that I can post is here – if it’s not here, I don’t have the information or I’m not allowed to post (some brands do not allow posting before the deal goes live). Really sorry I can’t help you! I don’t have any information on Michael Todd True Organics at all.

Danielle Avatar

Not being in the US this list makes me rather depressed. Everyone enjoy your UD lipstick sets!!! I can’t even buy UD in Australia in stores πŸ™

J Avatar

The lipstick set sold out within minutes. The website kept on freezing and next thing you knew, the set was in your cart, but sold out. That UD sale pissed more people off than anything, so you didn’t miss anything.

Denise S. Avatar

I’m going to buy some Yes to products on Friday 40% off their great creams and lotions. I would love to get the Urban Decay lipstick set too, but I have too many lipsticks already. Hopefully I’ll pickup a few Christmas gifts this weekend too.

Nika Avatar

Inglot will have 20% thanksgiving sale on their website =)

Btw are the MUFA aqua pencils only either 20E with 28E pair or 2E with 30E pair, not including other colors? No code necessary? Will it be a bundle or need to put those two separately in the basket? Thanks

Nika Avatar

Thanks, will be on the look for the bundle then at midnight πŸ˜€

Inglot didn’t send email, but they posted the promo on their website also free black gel eyeliner with orders over 80$ πŸ˜€

Marie Avatar

That MUFE aqua shadow deal looks amazing! I couldn’t find any emails about it or on Sephora’s Black Friday pinterest. Where did you see the deal? I want to get the details before I make an order! Thanks so much for organizing all the beauty deals in one place!

Andie Avatar

OMG! The UD Revolution lipsticks are my favorite. I only own Jilted of the ones being offered. Still totally worth it if you ask me. *sets alarm clock*

Greta Avatar

Bobbi Brown is running what they call a pre Black Friday promotion today and tomorrow. Free full-size lip gloss plus choice of deluxe sample duo plus free shipping on any order, no minimum.

Megan Avatar

Christine, will you be putting a Black Friday & Cyber Monday list for Indie brands? It would be great to have access to a list that has indie brands too!

thank you in advance!

Bela Avatar

Please please, where can I find the cheapest Make Up Forever products in USA? I want to redict it to my country. I have no idea where to buy πŸ™
Thanks in advance!!!

Katie Avatar

Do you know if there is a limited amount of the UD Revolution Lipstick Bundles? Should I expect it to sell out in minutes? Hours? Last all day? Obviously you can’t be certain about this year but based on previous years? I really want this lipstick but 6am is very early for a college student to wake up haha


Jordan Avatar

Hi Christine, for Yes To’s Cyber Monday sale, does “$2 on everything” mean $2 off everything, or everything is $2? Might be a dumb question, but I just wanted to confirm πŸ™‚

Christine Avatar

I read it as everything is $2, though that sounds too good to be true (though it is for only two hours). All the info I have is actually exactly as copied/pasted into this post. “$2 on everything for two hours on 12/2! Starts 12pm (EST) – 2pm (EST). Cannot be combined with other offers, single items only, excludes bundles.” I will try to email and find out for sure.

Ann Avatar

I just checked the Ulta black Friday ad today, do you know why they are only selling the Dangerous palette and not the Feminine or Fun palette? Also, is it in stores only, I don’t see the Dangerous palette online yet.

alice Avatar

I love those tips but I live in Brazil and I can’t buy most of them. Maybe you could separate the brands and stores between the ones that have worldwide shipping and the ones that doesn’t. It would be really helpfull for all your international readers!


Heather Avatar

For Sephora’s $10 deals, do they continue on throughout the weekend- or is it just on Friday? Also, are we able to combine the codes SUSPENSE & SHIPNOW for Sephora?

Thank you!

Nars is having a 20% off friends and Family sale tomorrow, too. Unfortunately dolce vita lip pencil is not listed on the site! I will be so sad if it is discontinued!!

nicole Avatar

I am so so bummed! That lipstick set is a steal! If I didn’t all ready own 4 (3 full size) of them from the vib sale, I would be all over this! I wish they were different shades! Great score to who ever gets this deal!

Christine thanks to your blog I was able to pick up some Make Up For Ever Eyeshadow sticks at Sephora! I’m so excited to try them. I tested them on my hand and they haven’t bulged yet. Happy Black Friday!

Hello Christine ,

I love Temptalia , know that you have many fans here in Brazil .

I would like to ask you something about Tom Ford lipsticks .

On Wednesday I was in New York for work and bought at Saks Fifth Avenue one Tom Ford Lipstick in color 14 – Sable Smoke.

As I was in a hurry , just choose the color and bought the lipstick.
To my surprise when I got home I realized I possessed a different lipstick lipsticks I normally use smell, I do not know how to describe it , it has an like wax crayons smell, somewhat resembles the smell of old lipstick.

Researching temptalia and on the internet, I read several reviews saying that Tom Ford lipstick has vanilla fragrance , but also read that some nude lipsticks have a different smell.

You made ​​some reviews of TF lipsticks , including a nude (Lipstick Nude Blush ) . Could you tell me if this smell is normal (if Blush Nude has that smell ?) I bought an old lipstick or that smell is common lipsticks in this color?

Good thing I set my alarm for the UD lipstick sale, by 9am they were sold out. I don’t have any UD lipsticks so this is my first for them. Let’s see how they compare to Mac and Nars.

Hi Sheena,

I don’t work with or support Lime Crime due to their actions towards me/this blog a couple of years ago, so I don’t keep up with what the brand is doing. I’m sure if they have something going on, they’ll have it on their Facebook/website/social media accounts.

I am pretty pissed off about the UD lipsticks selling out! I have an account with them, and had actually placed an order just hours before. (I have my card # saved with them and everything.) I was logged on, and placed my order immediately. 8:00 my time, on the dot. Conveniently, the site screwed up, and kept sending me back to random screens, so I was unable to order. I don’t think UD was necessarily at fault here, but I do think it’s BS. I, like many others, stayed up all night, or set an alarm, to get this. Either they had like 25 of these sets available, or some sniping program (or similar trickery) was involved. (People use these, or pay a company to “snipe” for them. These programs and computer servers allow the buyer to screw everyone else over and win a bid, or to snatch all of the items up first. It’s basically an unfair advantage.) I wouldn’t be surprised to see a ton of these pop up on eBay.
