You can also shop through Ebates, which will help you save anywhere from 3-15% depending on the merchant. For those unfamiliar with the program, you earn cash back from purchases you make through Ebates, which is paid out quarterly. Right now, the top beauty cash back offers are Lancome (14%), Clarins (14%), (12%), The Body Shop (12%), (12%), SkinStore (12%), Bobbi Brown (12%), Smashbox (12%), Clinique (12%), Stila (12%), Prescriptives (12%), Macy’s (10%), Saks (10%), sephora (10%), shu uemura (10%), philosophy (10%).

Or you can shop through Mr. Rebates, which is just like Ebates, so it’s really about who has the better cash back offer at the time of purchase (because it can vary!). Top cash back offers are: Murad (18%), Kiehl’s (12%), TimeToSpa (10%), SkinStore (10%), Apothica (10%), DermStore (10%), Elizabeth Arden (10%), ULTA (10%).

It’s the day after Thanksgiving, which is a holiday here that happens tomorrow (the 24th), and the immediate Friday after (the 25th) is called “Black Friday.” I believe the short story is that it’s the “beginning” of the holiday shopping season and when stores finally get into the black (profit).

Libby Avatar

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?

Mango the mango Avatar

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!

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.

Yazmin Avatar

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

Dinitchka Avatar

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.

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.

Pur Minerals is having 25% off their entire site + free shipping until 11/28 – plus a free clutch (I believe you have to make a $50+ purchase) – no code needed. In addition, they have a coupon code: STEAL – which gives you an additional 20% off and another free gift 😀

Thank you for the list Christine – I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving (and a big THANK YOU for all the work you put into Temptalia :3) and happy shopping :3

IT cosmetics is having a 30% off sale that I believe starts Friday. Giorgio Armani’s sale ends today I believe. It was 20% off w/a 75.00 purchase and free 2nd day ship. Too Faced has a good deal for 99.00, you get the naked, natural, and smokey palettes, full sized shadow insurance, mascara, and a couple other things. Shu Uemerea 20% off with code wish2011. Elizabeth Arden — From Black Friday until Cyber Monday, get 25 percent off and free shipping on any order purchased through Elizabeth Arden’s website. And as a bonus, save up to 65 percent on skin care, makeup, and fragrance gift sets by using the code BF2 at the checkout. MAC is bringing back the black night lipstick just for Black Friday. Laura Geller: 20%. Josie Maran: 25% off.

Jess Avatar

Does anyone actually know WHEN (as in specifically what time) the Sephora Black Friday sales start? The information I’ve been hearing seems pretty inconsistent…

Andrea Avatar

Do you know if the Black Friday deals )specifically the Urban Decay one) begin at midnight tonight? Sorry if that’s a stuoid question.

PS I love your site!!

Aleeya Avatar

Thank you so much for posting all these offers. You are doing such a fabulous job! Just received an e-mail from Sugarpill Cosmetics. They will have 30% off sitewide Friday starting 12 a.m. PST. Then 20% off Saturday – Monday. Use code PINKWEEKEND. The e-mail also states that all orders won’t be shipped out until December 1.

I was in immediately at 11 CST on…… I can’t even get to another page…this site is completely frozen. I wonder how many of the $10 they will have….and how long does it last?

Jennifer Avatar

If you are looking to buy false eyelashes, I just saw this tweet from Our 30% off sale kicks off at 12am PST on 11/25! Use coupon code BLACKFRIDAY!
I buy my Miss Adoro lashes from them. I haven’t found any other sites that sell that brand.

Brenda Avatar

I thought I saw a sephora 10% off code on here, but now I cannot find it! Maybe I was dreaming??? It’s bad when you are old enough to have a daughter whose entire Christmas list is made up of items from Sephora!

Lucifin Avatar

Sugarpill is doing 30% off Black friday and 20% off rest of weekend and monday with code pinkeweekend.
