I know, I know, we should have put this article up sooner. It should have been prepared and worked on over the last few weeks, but let’s face it – Black Friday is mental in the UK now.
Like, not American mental, but it’s up there. We both work day jobs and it’s been hectic AF. But if you’re partial to a bit of after work shopping, here are our favourite deals, and some of the stuff we’ve bought for ourselves!
Boots aren’t doing a big blanket discount on most of their inventory, they’ve just picked out a few key bits and bobs and are offering really great deals on them (I mean, there’s a lot of stuff discounted, just not everything). Here are my faves.
If anyone’s been utterly killing it this week, it’s Beauty Bay. Did anyone else try and get on their site yesterday? They had to stagger access and the waiting time was hours. It’s back to normal today and has been largely restocked. Why has it been so mental? They’re doing up to 30% off everything. Here are a few of our faves to get you started!
25% declining discount with code LFBF25 which looks like it’ll work on top of other deals. 3 for 2 on Benefit (not inc the big kit below)
10% if you buy 2 or more things with code BLACK , free Benefit Roller Lash if you spend over £50. Heavily reduced Real Techniques sets, more than 30% off advent calendars, 30% off both LA Girl and Milani.
25% off almost everything with code FRIYAY
Buy a better than sex mascara and get 50% off something to go with it code: PINKFRIDAY . This works with the big eyeshadow palettes but not ltd edition or new releases.
25% off site wide with code FRIYAY
Those are the selections that are in my basket, but I’ve found loads more great deals, below. Sorry about this layout btw, I blame Amazon, but I don’t have time to fix it because I am hunting for deeeals!
40% off plus free delivery over a fiver with code 19806. Try the Honey Bronzer, it’s lovely.
I haven’t tried any H&M makeup (yet!) but apparently this stuff is pretty good, and today it’s all 20% off! I’ve heard good things especially about the mascara. Comment below if you’ve got any thoughts on this!
Makers of Freedom, Makeup Revolution, I heart Makeup, etc. Up to 70% off today. Pick up a Freedom brow pomade, it’s a dupe for the Anastasia one (it’s not on offer unfortunately, but if you’re buying anyway….).
Free gifts when you spend money on their site (£50, £100, or £150) includes a Beauty Blender flawless finish sponge, Hourglass gel liner, Foreo Luna Play, Ren bath oil, & more. You get to pick what you want so worth looking into (become a member or sign in to see all the options). Here, I’ll choose your things for you:
And we’ve still got £1 left over. You can spend that all by yourself 😉
20% off with code WIN20
20% off all weekend with code BLACK20
Big discounts (up to 50%), plus free brush when you spend £75. Honourable mentions:
ALL Glow kits are £24.60 reduced from £41!
Single eyeshadows are half price (£6 instead of £12) and you get free magnetic palettes big enough to store them in when you buy 4 or 8.
10% off with code selfcce
10% off all Beauty, excludes Jo Malone London
3 for 2 on all Benefit
20% off Aveda
25% off Clarins Spa Treatments
20% off Molton Brown
20% off and double points allegedly, seems to just be 10% off most makeup.
20% off everything, excludes Naked Heat and vaults.
