Some Black Friday online beauty deals worth checking out (2013)

Hey everybody! Hope all of you who celebrated Thanksgiving had a good one. Personally I went to my sister's house and watched her three sons wrestle each other and eat turkey legs larger than their heads, though getting there wasn't as simple as it should have been:

Always a blast when that happens. Anyway, I thought I'd write up a list of some of the juicier Black Friday deals I've seen advertised lately, because I'm sure many of us will be hitting up the sales for our holiday shopping needs. I've done my best to provide accurate info and links - if you spot any mistakes let me know!

I've included a couple of the bigger indie makeup companies in the list above, but if you're really into indie stuff I recommend checking out this list at because a number of other indie brands are doing sales as well!

I may be adding to this list or modifying it if I discover anything else, so check back! Or if you're waiting for Cyber Monday check back then as I'll be doing a list for that as well.

Will you be taking advantage of any of these deals? Do you know of any awesome online sales I haven't mentioned?

    1. I will be getting stuff from a couple of indie companies, probably some skincare stuff I've wanted to try from Paula's Choice, and some less exciting drugstore stuff from Walgreens, lol. And I plan on giving most of the other sites above a browse to see if there's anything calling out my name - I can't afford to buy from them all, alas! How about you?

  2. I put a bunch of nail polish in my shopping cart at Zoya because that Dream Big box is such an incredible deal. The "free" box would be $98 on its own, so getting it as a gift with a $72 purchase is amazing. But man, do I really need that much nail polish? I already own so much. But Zoya is my favorite polish formula. If you need me, I'll be staring at my computer dealing with an internal nail polish conflict.

    1. UPDATE: I just bought a boatload of nail polish.

    2. I love Zoya so I totally understand, haha. Which colors did you get?

  3. A caris aerodynamics decrease on highways, which reduces it's energy economy.
