The Best 2018 Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday Beauty Sales and Deals

My favorite shopping event of the year is finally here. This weekend, which kicks before Thanksgiving with some retailers, provides some of the best deals we will see. Traditionally, this is the weekend where most retailers cross over from red to black, and they will do whatever it takes to earn your shopping dollars. Offers are competitive, because almost every retailer will have one. I will update this every time I see an incredible offer through Cyber Monday, so this list will grow over the week. My tastes might vary from yours, so make sure you sign up for emails from all of your favorite retailers. It is also a good idea to check multiple blogs and sites to see what each of them feel is worth mentioning this season. Most of these offers go out to all customers. Of course, there might be some affiliate exclusives or offers targeted to select customers. I am not listing any small offers, because this is the time of year when we can stretch our budget further by scoring just the right deal. Some big offers will not make the cut either, because I cannot list them all.

Sephora and Ulta Beauty have articles of their own, because of the amount of deals they have and the number of people who only want to see offers from one or the other.

Use code MONDAYFUNDAY for 25% off sitewide. Valid 11/26/18 only! *The 30% off code should still work, so I would not use this unless that one stops early for some reason. I listed it for 2 reasons. #1 to show that Cyber Monday does not always bring the best deal. #2 to show that you may see an offer that may not be the best available.

Bloomingdale’s Buy More, Save More. Take 15% off when you spend $100-$249, 20% off when you spend $250-$399, or 25% off when you spend $400+ on items labeled BUY MORE, SAVE MORE. Valid 11/22/18-11/24/18.

FabFitFun Existing members can purchase a $60 gift card and get a $10 credit in the Winter Edit Sale plus a free 1.7oz Kate Somerville Exfolikate shipped with their order. The gift card face value will show up in your account (I know because I already took advantage of this deal) as soon as you click redeem on the email after purchasing it. You will not see the $10 credit in your account until the Edit Sale opens. Only those who make a purchase during the Edit Sale will ultimately receive the $10 credit and free Exfolikate, so do not purchase this deal unless you plan on buying something in the Edit Sale that opens in the beginning of January. If you do purchase it and do not make an Edit Sale order, you will still get the face value of the $60 gift certificate. It is confusing, because the site gives you an example of how to use the $60. You can use it however you want once it is in your account.

Those on a seasonal subscription can also upgrade to an annual subscription and receive $20 in add-on credit for the Spring 2019 Add-on Sale. The credit will not appear until Spring Add-ons open, and you MUST click-through the email you received directly from FabFitFun for this offer, the reason I am not linking anything. Do not click on my link to upgrade for this. Click the offer from your email if you received it. This is double the standard offer, so it is a real “Black Friday” Deal.

Fabletics 40% off everything runs through 11/21/18. Based on offers from previous years, this should get better.

Sale tops are $10 each.

As predicted, it got better. Everything is now 50% off from 11/22/18-11/24/18.

Laura Geller– Use code SALE35 for 35% off. Valid 11/21/18-11/25/18. As predicted, the Cyber Monday offer was better (but this one has a minimum). This happened in 2017 as well.

Get 10% off most beauty. Valid 11/22/18 only!

Use code CYBER for 25% off select items. Valid 11/26/18-11/27/18.

Luxury Beauty Store (No online site so I cannot link it)

Take 35% off. You must ask for the discount when you checkout, so make sure you get on the mailing list to get future offers. This is an amazing discount, because some of the items carried here are current, high-end and luxury beauty items. Getting 35% off some of these beauty products is almost unheard of. There are items in the store that carry the full retail price of items sold at bigger chains, but some carry naturally lower prices. Many items sold here were discontinued elsewhere and live out their final days on these shelves, so this is a great place to look when a coveted item is impossible to find elsewhere. I was able to purchase (for 15% lower than retail) my beloved Taupe Craze palette from Lancome when I had trouble finding it anywhere else. There was even a rumor that it was discontinued, which I really believed when I saw it there. Thankfully, it is available everywhere now (for those who cannot find it at their Luxury Beauty Store). Check the website for your local mall to see if you have a store near you. Discount valid 11/19/18-11/25/18. This got extended on 11/26/18 through the end of the day.

You can get 25% off your purchase from 11/27/18-11/30/18. It’s not as good as the Black Friday offer, but certainly worth grabbing if you see it on time.

Those who go over will lower their discount. Anyone planning on spending over $400 should consider splitting the orders. You really do not see discounts like this often. Ends 11/23/18 online.

These round-up style articles are rare for my site. Whenever there is a big sales day coming, I will occasionally create one, as I did here. It is more likely that I will post deals that interest me on my retailer pages (in the side column on the right) instead of mentioning each one in an article. I generally prefer to write more specific, detailed articles. Those who want breakdowns and details on specific deals, events, or products might want to subscribe to me. My heart is in writing even though I love sharing deals, so this monotonous style does not suit me for everyday. See all Deal articles. View my main page for the guide map to the site and deeper deal exploration.

I'm Kimberly. Shopping is always more fun when I've found the best deal available, so I am always on the hunt. My father instilled that in me, and I love that I carry a piece of him. Sometimes, my husband and sons (12 and 7) let me shop for them, too. They do not use as many beauty products as I do. We can all benefit from nice products, even though their routine ends with moisturizer. That is when I can convince my 12-year-old to apply it.

Deal or No Deal? What Do You Think?
