We are one week away from the official Black Friday Event, the most desired day for all shoppers who want to take advantage from the best discounts of the whole year. In some websites, Black Friday deals already started. Being a beauty junkie, I can’t say no to the amazing Black Friday’s sales. Hence, I have prepared a short list of my hot picks for beauty. Check the five items are worth buying under this special discount event.
If you have waited for Black Friday to arrive, it is finally here! Black Friday offers better discounts than Boxing Day. I know that, because two years ago when I wanted to buy a laser hair removal home device, the best deal was on Black Friday. Lesson learned, now I make sure to get the best out of it. Focusing on beauty, I browsed a few websites and conclude that there are five items that are good value for money .
Along with the compliments that the brand has received from beauty guru’s, customers have been praising this face mask too. The Florence by Mills Mind Glowing Peel Off Mask uses the concept of having fun whilst taking care of your beauty. The shimmer pink colour makes the perfect Instagram skincare pictures. Obviously, there’s more than that, and what I really think it’s exceptional in this mask is the fact that has purifying charcoal powder to deeply cleanse the skin, lavender oil to calm and witch hazel to rebalance skin. This best seller mask is a must for Black Friday.
This luxury beauty box it costs only £55, but is worth £128 with products from Shiseido, Nars, Laura Mercier, BareMinerals and Narciso Rodriguez. From the research I did about beauty boxes and advent calendars, I think this is the best available at the moment on lookfantastic.com, because it has high quality products and it’s complete in terms of skincare, makeup and perfumes. The products included are:
- Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder- 1g;
- NARS Climax Mascara- 6g;
- NARS Blush in shade Orgasm- 2.5g;
- Shiseido Benefiance Wrinkle Smoothing Cream- 15ml;
- Shiseido Ultimune 3.0 Face Serum- 5ml;
- bareMinerals Pureness Cleanser- 120ml;
- Serge Lutens La Dompteuse Encagee- 1ml;
- Narciso Rodriguez For Her Ambree- 10ml;
and one of the following lipsticks:
- Laura Mercier ROUGE Lipstick BLUSH PINK;
- Laura Mercier ROUGE Lipstick ROSE VIF- 3.5g or
- Laura Mercier ROUGE Lipstick ROSE ROUGE- 3.5g.
If you never tried Olaplex, this is the perfect set to get started with. I’m a big fan of Olaplex No 3 (read my review here), since I started dying my hair blonde. Hair looks healthier and avoids breakage whilst washing hair. This set includes everything, besides Olaplex No 3, it has the shampoo (click here to read my review about the shampoo), conditioner, all in 100 ml, and the bonding oil, 30ml. A complete haircare set that is worth £78, but it only costs £54 at the moment on lookfantastic.com.
There is so many beauty advent calendars that it gets hard to choose. The best advent calendars with a reasonable price sell out so quickly, that by the time Black Friday arrives, only a few remain available. From the ones that are available at the moment and focusing more on makeup than skincare, I selected as my favourite the Makeup Revolution x Friends 12 Days of Christmas. It’s worth £71, but it only costs £30. What captivated me in this makeup advent calendar, were the 2 mini eyeshadow palettes, each one with 9 shades. You can easily travel with them and they have neutral and bright colourful shades. Plus, I can’t deny, since I am a huge fan of Friends, I like the idea of having a Friends makeup collection. The products included are:
- Two 9-shade Eyeshadow Palettes;
- Lip Balm;
- Lip Scrub;
- Compact Friends Mirror;
- Mini Lobster Brush Set;
- Mini Fixing Spray;
- Pout Bomb Lipgloss;
- Hair Scrunchie;
- Makeup Blending Sponge;
- Friends Cosmetic Bag.
I could have chosen a perfume for my last beauty pick, however I thought more than a perfume, a hair mist is a better deal for Black Friday. Perfumes you can always get random promotions around the year, but sometimes good scented hair mists, are harder to find, or they aren’t available in store or they get excluded from discounts. So, as my main choice, I selected Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Hair Mist. For those days that you have to use dry shampoo, you can complement with this hair mist. Bad “smelly” hair days are over.
This is it! My beauty picks for Black Friday! I tried to include a bit of everything, makeup, skincare and hair products. I hope you enjoyed my selection. Tomorrow I will bring you my Black Friday Fashion Favourites. Stay tuned!
