Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2017: Beauty deals, sales and codes

black friday 2017 beauty deals
Black Friday is the day after the American holiday Thanksgiving and the kickstart of Christmas shopping. Therefore most American shops offer on Black Friday (24/11, day after Thanksgiving) and Cyber Monday (27/11, Monday after Thanksgiving) great deals and discounts. In this globalized world, these days have been adopted by European brands as well to push consumers to start holiday shopping.

I thought of skipping this post this year, with so many deals already going on, but since I love sales here we go. I will try to bring you discounts and codes valid for this occasion in the most used beauty-related webshops. For my European readers, I will signal the American website for which you might be charged customs costs. I would personally not suggest you make big purchases (above ~24$) unless you’re prepared to pay around 40% of your purchase extra.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette Review

anastasia bevely hills subculture palette dupes

A lot of drama has been going around the beauty scene and it is all about the new Anastasia Beverly Hill Subculture palette launch. This is definitely a polarizing palette with people loving it and others hating it to extremes. This brought on ridiculous reviews like “the worst palette evah”or “wtf this sucks”, which in my opinion are all just riding on a few bad first impressions by the first people trying it, and nobody actually tried to find out how this palette works best. That is how I approached this palette, tip toeing around it and getting to know it before feeling completely comfortable with it. So now that I’ve had it for two weeks, this is my Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture palette review.

Rediscovering the blogging world

Last summer I accepted a request that was for me more of a challenge: I made my first Youtube video. It started on request from some girls in a makeup group (Armocromia – Rossetto e Merletto) to do a tutorial on the makeup looks I was posting to help less expert girls to achieve the looks. Well since then Youtube has now become my main focus and I have just realized how I lost contact with blogging ever since.
