Black Friday — November 29 this year — is creeping up, and, naturally, Sephora has some extremely compelling deals on makeup and skincare. Whether you’re looking for a gift for a loved one, or just want a discount for that Sunday Riley product you wanted but weren’t willing to shell out for, bookmark this page. We’ll be updating it as the deals start rolling in — and if last year was any indication, don’t dilly-dally: Many of these picks sell out fast. (A note: for more timely sales coverage, follow us over on Twitter.)
You can get five samples (including Good Genes, A+, C.E.O, Auto Correct, and Tidal) for less than the cost of one full-size bottle of Good Genes.
A classic palette from Urban Decay with 12 rosy-toned shadows, now 50 percent off.
This Naked palette, which makeup artist Katie Jane Hughes recommended to Rio, is also 50-percent off..
This trio of liquid eyeshadow from clean-beauty brand Kosas, features a metallic orange, shimmery pink, and an ice blue that Rio calls “the world’s best baby blue eyeshadow.”
Another great stocking stuffer — this (also Rio-recommended) lipstick, which comes in 20 different shades from a light pink to a hunter green.
Now that it’s $100 off, this T3 curling iron set is practically affordable.
A good deal on some of Nest’s signature scents and fancy hand creams, including black tulip, indigo, citrine, midnight fleur, and dahlia and vines.
This set of six different highly-rated Benefit brow products (including Goof Proof, Precisely, My Brow, 24-Hour brow setter, Gimme Brow, Ka-Brow, and 3D Browtones) is valued at $144 — it’s currently available for less than $50.
Cheesy as it may be, buy this heart-shaped, rosy-colored palette now and save it to give to your beauty obsessive on Valentine’s Day.
For the curly haired frequent travelers, you could not go wrong with this set, which comes with four different frizz-preventing minis, including a heat spray, anti-humidity gel, shampoo, and conditioner.
The Fresh soy cleanser and rose face mask have somewhat of a cult following, and now you can get both together in one handy set along with a moisturizer, eye cream, and lip balm.
This wintery, frost-inspired highlighter palette is now 50-percent off.
To complete the metallic Fenty look: these frosted lipsticks.
If you’re a Drybar regular, consider this package of their in-salon tools (including their signature blow dryer, round brush, detangler, blowout serum, flexible hold hairspray, and detox dry shampoo), which is the price of three in-salon blowouts.
This set provides you with three different hand and nail cream formulated with Caudalie’s famous antioxidant grape polyphenols that hydrate and lock in the moisture on your skin.
This 10 brush set from Artis, a brand that the Cut also calls “worth it” is valued at $483. Which makes $200 a very good price.
This status water bottle is the one we think is “most likely to steal S’well’s throne as a fitness-class favorite.” The metallic pink, navy blue, and non-spiked hot pink are also now on sale.
This set gives you samples of Tarte’s three best mascaras (Big Ego, Tarteist, and Lights, Camera, Lashes) so you can test them before committing to the full-size version.
A two-tone lipstick that promises to contour your lips and give them a fuller look. Plus: $16 for Givenchy!

A neutral liquid lip and gloss sampler featuring a formula that bareMinerals promises won’t dry out your lips.
Peter Thomas Roth, a brand the Cut has written about many times before, put an entire skincare routine — a cleanser, serum, eye patches, moisturizer, mask and two exfoliators — altogether in one set. It even comes with a handy makeup bag.
A Rio-approved bronze-y eyeshadow palette that gives you “every brown shade you could ever want.”
You get 24 different eyeshadow shades (including sparkly and matte), one mascara sample, an eyeliner sample, and an eyeshadow brush all in one palette.
One of our best-rated cleansing brushes, which the Cut calls “efficient” and “worth buying.” This one suits all skin-types, but also on sale are the LUNA 2 for normal skin, the LUNA 2 for combination skin, and a set including the LUNA 3 and some deeply-hydrating Tarte skincare products.
We’ve written about the Amika Blowout Babe Thermal Brush before; this one, while similar, apparently gives a slightly sleeker, more polished look. And (obviously) today is the day to get it, because they’re throwing in a hair dryer (!?), and some of their anti-humidity spray, dry shampoo, and dry conditioner.
A quartet of rose-scented Fresh products, including their moisturizer, sleeping mask, lip balm, and toner.
This six-piece set has some of Lancôme’s best-selling makeup and skincare products, including their Monsieur Big mascara, which the Cut has put on their best mascaras roundup, and their Bi-Facil makeup remover, also Cut-approved.

A very good gift for a K-beauty obsessive: this set from Amorepacific, the company that owns Laneige, Sulwhasoo, Innisfree, and Etude House. This includes their Youth Revolution Crème and Masque, Treatment Cleansing Foam, and the anti-aging Vintage Single Extract Essence.
This set includes not only a blow dryer and nozzle, but also the company’s beloved diffuser, which they designed specifically to gently enhance curls, and to give them a frizz-free finish.
We’ve written about Summer Fridays — a cult-y, instagram-famous brand started by influencers Mariana Hewitt and Lauren Gores Ireland — in the past (Rio glowingly reviewed their Jet Lag mask, as did a bevy of Cut writers). While Jet Lag is known for being intensely hydrating, R+R is meant to buff (and soften) your skin.
A lightweight, medium-coverage foundation with SPF 15 to even and protect your skin. It comes in 56 different shades and even has a matching concealer (also on sale) available in 40 tones.
