In a rare, serious moment for me, I’d like to say that I am very grateful for all of you in my life. Amen.
What did everyone do to celebrate today? I did my friend’s makeup and another friend’s hair then we went and ATE. I love family and friend time. And in case you were wondering, yes I’ve made everyone male + female talk about makeup and hair for 3 days straight – haha.
Honest question, does anyone brave the crowds for Black Friday or are you all more of Cyber Monday shoppers? I’m a cyber shopper 1: because of my deep love of sweatpants and 2: my dislike of trying to find parking spots in L.A.
I’m wearing sweatpants right now. Just FYI. The love truly runs deep and when I have to put on real pants I always do an audible sigh. So online shopping has become my thing.
I’m feeling like Black Friday and Cyber Monday have gone in 3 main directions: companies will either release exclusive colors or products (Colour Pop Cosmetics), do a huge discount off the whole site (GAP – best underwear on earth, not trying to be a perv, just saying), or do stocking-stuffer mini gift sets that are a great deals (Sephora/Ulta).
Here are some favorite sales from this year that really stand out to me. Any others I should know about?
– Sephora is apparently having some $10 deals. These gift sets are a great way to try makeup before committing the Big Benjamins to a product.
– Ulta also is having some gift sets that look great and doing $6.99 liters of certain TIGI shampoos and conditioners.
– Shu Uemura is doing 25% off and free shipping over $50 now through Monday. Their cream blushes are a must. have. Especially in Orange Quartz, which is actually a super soft peach shade, and part of my “makeup for strawberry blondes” post. Use code SHUJOY
–Tarte Cosmetics is doing 25% off sitewide including their limited edition holiday sets and free shipping on orders over $40. Use code: FRIDAY
