Black Friday is the day after the American holiday Thanksgiving and the kickstart of Christmas shopping. Therefore most American shops offer on Black Friday (23/11, day after Thanksgiving) and Cyber Monday (26/11, 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 2018 sales already started with a bang, with BeautyBay having 30% off most of their stock. I personally already spent all my money on that sale but nevertheless, let’s see what the new Black Friday sales are. 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?
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 ~27$) 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 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!
