Black Friday 2020 sales

Black Friday is the day after the American holiday Thanksgiving and the kickstart of Christmas shopping. Therefore most American shops offer on Black Friday (27/11, day after Thanksgiving) and Cyber Monday (30/11, 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.

This year’s Black Friday 2020 sales already start during the whole Cyber Week 2020, Monday 23/11 to Cyber Monday 30/11. I would recommend you take this week to make a plan, a wishlist, a budget and stick to it. I am horrible at it but I can always recommend this strategy right? My wishlist is up on my Youtube channel.

In this post 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. In most European countries custom charges are due for orders outside the EU for a value higher than 22€. This excludes shipping costs, but be careful that some brands will put the price without discount as value (Colourpop, Makeup Geek have done this to me), so you might be charged custom fees regardless. These are around 13€ of administrative costs + 21% VAT. You can check for and indication at invoercalculator.nl.

I would like to thank all the wonderful news accounts that help us all keep track of all these sales, first of all Temptalia, Beauty News, Indie Mood, Colourpopcult, Beauty Budget Collection and Trendmood.

I will keep updating this list as much as I can leading up to Black Friday and Cyber Monday so keep an eye out for new brands and websites!

Nabla Matte Lipsticks Swatches and Review

nabla lipstick swatches

Did I need new lipsticks, probably not, but I have a weakness for Nabla Cosmetics. Nabla released 16 new lipsticks in The Matte Lip Collection, with 3 new finishes to replace some of their older Diva Crime lipsticks and add new shades. I was not a big fan of their old lipstick formula as two of the ones I tried (Kernel and Cosmic Dancer) felt like slug slime on the lips. The new formulas are nothing like the that thankfully. I decided to purchase one lipstick per finish, and luckily the shades I wanted were in a discounted bundle called Spicy Bundle, 4 lipsticks for the price of 3. Let’s take a look at the new Nabla Cult Matte lipsticks.
