The hottest makeup and beauty deals for Black Friday 2015

Black Friday may be the best time to snag a new TV, buy some new winter outfits and get that donut maker you've been wanting. But Black Friday is also a great time to stock up on beauty stocking stuffers for your friends.

Black Friday discounts tend to lean more toward techy items — computers, TVs, game sets — but that doesn't necessarily mean you won't find a good deal on beauty products.

As the ads hit your mailboxes, take a close look at when the deals will be offered. More often than not, beauty deals (like clothing deals) will last longer than just the wee doorbuster hours. So, you may just be able to get away with snatching up the best products earlier in the week... before the stampedes.

DealNews makes a few predictions this year regarding beauty and Black Friday:

  1. Amazon will most likely offer huge deals on drugstore brands (like CoverGirl).
  2. Cyber Monday will have better savings on high-end beauty brands (like Clinique).
  3. Men's mid to high-end shavers are a good deal on Black Friday.
  4. "Buy the tote bag!" (They usually cost about $25, and you have to spend at least $25 to buy them, but they can be filled with $100-$200 worth of products.)

We'll be gathering more of our favorite deals throughout the month as more and more Black Friday ads are leaked — so continue to check back for the latest finds. Here are some of our favorites so far.


Amazon already has deals going on! They have "Deals of the Week" and on the left-hand panel, you can scroll down and filter the products by beauty. The deals will get better as Black Friday and Cyber Monday creep closer.

Bath and Body Works

While we don't have the official ad yet, BBW always has their "Buy 3, Get 3" deals around Black Friday, but usually this promotion lasts longer than just Friday. Also, BBW has a VIP tote bag you can buy with a minimum purchase amount (most likely, it will cost $20 if you spend $40). The tote is "over a $100 value."

  • Any day now...
  • Tote: Joyful body lotion, body wash, spray and hand soap and Spiced Apple Toddy candle


Although Groupon did not advertise many beauty deals in their Black Friday ad, you'll probably be able to find more on the actual app and/or website.

  • 60 percent off best of Burberry fragrances for women and men (available Nov. 23)
  • 85 percent off Beaute Basics 12-piece pro gun metal set (available Nov. 26)


Kohl's is a good place to stop at this time of year (Nov. 23-29) because they offer $15 Kohl's Cash (normally it's $10) for every $50 spent. However, you can only redeem the Kohl's Cash you earned from Nov. 30 to Dec. 6. It's a short window.

Sephora hasn't put their deals up on their website yet, but we did find a Black Friday flyer — some sort of flyer. It shows items, but doesn't have prices yet. Sephora also usually offers their "$10 sale" — which is a selection of items that they mark down (way down) for Black Friday. But these items usually go pretty quick.


Yes! They released their official Black Friday ad, which you can view online. Hold your horses, though — these deals begin on Thanksgiving evening.

Walgreens has some good deals this year, but you have to have their Walgreens Balance Rewards card. It's free, you just have to sign up for it (and it's not another credit card, hooray!). Ideally, you'll want to have the card ready to go to save you time on the day of.
