Has everyone survived the Sephora VIB sales and the Singles Day Sales, oh yeah and the Friends and Family Bonanzas? More importantly, have your wallets and bank accounts survived? I was very good, by my standards, I had saved for the Sephora VIB sale and that’s where my money went. My order should be coming in today so I will have a slew of reviews for you over the next couple of weeks. Meanwhile, the Black Friday deals have slowly started to trickle in. From makeup exclusives to Ulta’s Black Friday insert being released (recently taken off all black friday sites but you can find pics on Instagram)- it’s time to start saving again and fast! #thecalmbeforethesalestorm
These Too Faced White Chocolate and Chocolate Chip Black Friday $26 exclusive “mini” palettes caught my eye on the gram. The White Chocolate palette will be exclusive to Sephora for Cyber Monday and the Matte Chocolate Chip palette will be exclusive to toofaced.com for Black Friday. There are also some other deals going on too like buy a Better Than Sex mascara and get 50% off your second item, and 2 melted lip items for $30, there was also a buy all three chocolate palettes for $99 but I don’t see it anymore- you can check out all the items in the Pink Friday sale here. #smellslikechocolate I actually like the Chocolate Bar palette better than the Urban Decay Naked palettes. These are neutral palettes that can go smokey for night or light for an easy day look.
UPDATE: These Peach items will be available on Sephora.com on December 15th and then in store in January 6th. The Peach Eye Palette will be available on December 26th. Also a quick mention that Too Faced is re-releasing their Peach Palette in a couple of weeks. This palette sold out in a flash last Spring! A lot of makeup mavens that couldn’t quite get their hands on this the first time around are excited about it coming back again. There will also be a whole peach line with a blush called “Papa don’t Peach” and a highlighter/blush/bronzer combo. Not sure if those are coming out in the Spring or in December. The Too Faced/Kat von D Better Together heart palette will release the day after Christmas on December 26th. In other makeup new Too Faced was just bought out by Estee Lauder. It seems some of our smaller niche brands are getting bought out by the big guys- this has a lot of people concerned about changes in quality, formula, and animal testing. (other recent buyouts included IT Cosmetics and Becca).
