Every year, I go super super early to Lord & Taylor because they give out the Take $20 off your purchase of $40+. This is my absolute favorite coupon because it can be applied on beauty. I would go back to the entrance and kindly ask for another coupon. I’ve in the past gotten 4 coupons. This doorbuster coupon is valid from 5 AM to 1 PM. It is by far the best doorbuster Black Friday coupon among all the top retailers.
This year I got to Lord & Taylor at 645 AM (woof), and only got 2 coupons. I used one for a new winter coat because I desperately need a new one, and one of my beauty purchase. At the last Sephora sale, I got a Dior Airflash foundation. I like the way it looks on my skin and how light weight it is so I decided to stock up. The key to airbrushed foundation is a great makeup brush, so I also bought the brush specifically for Airflash. The brush retails for $55, so I got it for $35.
And now to the good part. I of course went to Sephora. I got tons of the Under $15 doorbusters for stocking stuffers/ white elephant gifts. I made sure to get the products that were great values, because nothing is worse than buying one of those deluxe sized products that are actually a rip off *cough cough the sample sized products displayed while you’re waiting on line cough cough*. I was actually pleased with the products and variety. Check out my haul below:
First, I got my 500 point reward. I chose AMOREPACIFIC Cleanse.Hydrate.Finish set which includes 1 Treatment Cleansing Foam, 1 Treatment Enzyme Peel, 1 Moisture bound Rejuvenating Creme, 1 Color Control Cushon Compact.
Next, I got to chose my birthday gift! I got to choose between a Caudalie duo or tarte set. Since I already have the tarte full sized products, I opt-ed for the Caudalie duo, because skincare is everything, duh.
Okay, now onto my haul. I had to get the Benefit Cosmetics Bestseller Blowout set! This limited-edition set includes a full-size They’re Real! Mascara (!!), Hoola bronzing powder mini, and fun-size High Beam highlighter. It was only $15 ($43 value). I just bought the mascara during the VIB sale, so I’m excited I got another one for half the price and got 2 deluxe sized products.
Next is tarte’s Precious Picks Color Set. tarte is a vegan brand and this set includes a trio of Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Ornate (rosy coral),Color Splash Lipstick in Surf’s Up (mauve) , and my fave mascara Lights, Camera, Lashes™ 4-in-1 Mascara (black). I love love love tarte blushes. They pigmented and very blendable. They always have that perfect shade. This set sold for $10 ($36 value).
I was so excited to get Becca’s Wake Up Call Kit – Natural Glow Travel Duo. This set includes a First Light Priming Filter
& a Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter in Moonstone. The First Light Priming Filter instantly brightens dull skin, creating a hydrated, glowing canvas for all-day makeup wear. Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter’s formula features ultra-fine light-reflecting pearls that melt into skin for an effortless, natural dewy glow. Water-light and sheer, the Moonstone shade adjusts to any light so your refined glow is never lost. I got this for $15 ($23 value).
Next is a must have. I got the Sephora Collection Blend & Clean Kit. A set of three different sized Total Coverage blending sponges for effortless streak-free makeup application paired with a mini Solid Clean brush cleaner. I mean what’s the difference between these sponges and a beauty blender? Marketing. But anyways I got this for $15 ($29 value).
Next up is hands down the best deal. I was shocked when I saw it on the $15 or less section at Sephora. It’s First Aid Beauty’s Ultra Repair Cream. A full size product! I love this moisturizer you can use on your face and your body. It’s gentle and can be used on all skintypes! It provides instant relief and long-term hydration for dry skin and good to use for eczema. It was only $15 ($42 value (!!)).
I really like the next set I purchased. I’m actually going to give it to my roommate. I got the Sephora Collection Colorful Cleanse & Treat set which includes a avocado face mask, lavender foot mask, and coconut micellar milk—everything you need to cleanse and treat your skin.Enriched with natural avocado extract, the Avocado Face Mask delivers intense nutrition to skin while repairing and instantly relieving sensitive areas for skin that is supple and soothed. The energizing Lavender Foot Mask contains natural pomegranate fruit extract to reduce signs of fatigue, awakening and toning the skin for refreshing radiance. The soothing, relaxing Coconut Micellar Milk with natural lotus flower extract locks in water for long-lasting moisture and improves visible signs of tiredness for a comforted complexion. This was $10 ($18.50 value).
I also got Buxom Pout On The Prowl Lip Set. This is a two-piece set with a Mini Full-On Lip Polish in Dominique & Big & Sexy Bold Gel Lipstick in Toxic Cherry. This is perfect to keep in your bag during this holiday season. Love the shade for a bold red lip. It was $12 ($32 value).
I absolutely love Lancome mascaras & eyeliners. The next set in my opinion was a great deal as I know I’ll use it everyday. It’s something I’m going to keep in my bag. The DRAMA LIQUI-PENCIL Longwear Eyeliner in Noir Intense (deep black) is perfect for a night look (I usually wear brown during the day). I like how it’s small so if i’m out I can keep it in my clutch. I always looks for mascaras that are volumizing so I was glad to get Lancome’s HYPNÔSE DRAMA mascara in this set. I got this duo for $15 ($32.50 value).
Next two products are sets I’m probably going to return TBH. At the moment I was throwing things in my cart because all the pre-teens were going crazy with the set. I didn’t want to miss out so I grabbed anything that interested me. For a good stocking stuffer, I got Bite Beauty’s Mini Multistick Duo. It’s a set of two deluxe-size Multisticks in Cashew and Papaya. I like the shades so I didn’t mind that it wasn’t the best deal. It was $15 (valued at $20). The lipsticks are pretty mini, and to be honest there a great sales in the store and it’s better to grab a full sized marked down Urban Decay or Too Faced liquid lippies.
Another product I think I may return is Make Up For Ever The Artist Neutrals – Mini Lip Duo. This minis come in the following shades: 105 – Rosewood & C211 – Rose Wood. I got it for $15.
Those were the black Friday door buster deals I got this year. I did find a lot of good sales within the store. Check out my picks below:
