There Are a Lot of Rarely-on-Sale Luxury Beauty Products on Sale Right Now

As we were sniffing out deals yesterday, we landed on a trove of luxury beauty products — a category that rarely goes on sale — that were, in fact, on sale. Several products you can snag at a discount are things we’ve written about and praised on the Strategist before, including fashion-editor-at-large Amy Larocca’s favorite lip stain, Retta’s favorite mineral concealer, Rio Viera-Newton’s trusty SK-II essence, and many, many more. These probably won’t stay on sale for long, though, so make smart decisions and grab them while you can.

There’s a natural-beauty sale taking place at Dermstore, where you can pick up products from culty (natural) skin-care line Sunday Riley, like this beloved wrinkle-smoothing facial oil.
Original Price: $80

Also from Sunday Riley: a super-lightweight, face-plumping tinted moisturizer.
Original Price: $48

Now, a bunch of highlights from Nordstrom’s massive beauty sale, where thousands of products are 15 percent off. First up, this facial-treatment essence from SK-II, which is part of Rio Viera-Newton’s famed Google-doc beauty routine. She writes: “Essences keep your skin plump, hydrated, and glowy. And they have regenerative properties, so they can even help with breakouts and hyperpigmentation … This product is very expensive. But I believe it’s worth it — there’s a reason it’s pretty consistently one of the items I’ll splurge on when I get my paycheck. Drop four drops in your palm and pat it into your skin for a full minute. If you’re thinking, I don’t have time for this, well, neither do I, but you have to.”
Original Price: From $99

These facial masks are from the same Google doc, and from the same brand. Viera-Newton writes, “I love, love, love it, and my heart breaks every time I look at its price tag. It’s soaked in all that SK-II juice — actually called Pitera — that clears your skin and keeps you looking glowy.”
Original Price: From $95
