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.

Hefty Real Techniques set, reduced from £80 to £40.

S&G Winter Wonder Glam from £50 to £25. We covered this in our gift guide and it’s worth close to £80, so definitely pick this up if you’re a S&G fan

You know when you see something and think ‘I didn’t know what was missing from my life until I saw you’? Well that’s this. And it’s £18 today.

Words fail me. Amazing brushes. Very cute. Half price from £40 to £20. Yes please.


Superdrug are doing a big up to 60% off sale, including half price advent calendars & gift sets, and 1/3 off Nip+Fab. Also don’t miss these two that I got super excited over.

This Real Techniques Miracle Sponge is £2.99 today. £2.99!! I’ll take ten, please (normally £7-8ish).
Cult favourite Ardell Demi Wispies 1/3 off @ £3.65

Beauty Bay

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!
