You might think that Beauty Bay staff get their fix of products the other 364 days of the year, but we’ll still be making the most of Black Friday’s beauty bargains to stock up on old favourites and try new launches.
Having determined their Black Friday shopping game plans well in advance – hyperlinked wishlists at the ready, here’s what the Beauty Bay team will be adding to their baskets this week…
Black Friday is something I’ve never really embraced until this year, and my bank balance better be ready, because I’ve got my eye on a LOT. First on my list are the Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops – I’m going for the shade Sunlight. I’m a pale person and in the winter months I feel my skin needs a little extra help to get that golden glow it lacks on it’s own. It’s our Christmas party soon, and I can’t wait to mix them in with my foundation and glow all night! The other thing on my hit list is the Morphe 697 15 Piece Vegan Brush Set, because you can never have too many brushes, right? I’m in desperate need of some new face brushes, and as my eyeshadow palette collection is forever expanding, my eye brushes collection needs populating too (and with 10% off the set, it’s a steal!).

As usual, I’m using Black Friday as an excuse to finally buy the things I’ve been looking longingly at in my basket. Tempting me daily, I’m so excited to finally get my hands on one of Eyeko’s newest mascaras and some more Sachajuan. The only brand to never let me or my lashes down, Eyeko promise AND deliver. Therefore, I can say with confidence that I know the Lash Alert Mascara is more of an investment than an impulse buy… A few weeks ago here at BB we had the pleasure of meeting and discussing all things haircare with Sacha Mitic of Sachajuan. If there’s anything I took from that meeting (apart from lots of tips and tricks) it’s that top of my NEED List is their Leave In Conditioner.

With those two very exciting words “Black Friday” ringing around the office I have felt the NEED to compile my must have purchases in readiness for the madness! On my go to list, that’s sitting patiently waiting for this god sent week is an absolute necessity, The Neo–Trio Palette by Kevyn Aucoin. How can anyone not want this, its three of the best sellers, has gorgeous packaging and gives you that ‘just walked off the beach’ glow! Next on my list is Frank Body’s Shimmer Scrub, all the coffee scrub goodness with added shimmer…need I say anymore? Lastly, I am feeding my fake tan obsession with the St Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower Tan. For a lazy, tan fanatic like me, this gives me that year-round glow I crave in just 3 minutes – so I can look like I’ve spent 3 weeks on the beach instead of dreaming about it!

With my makeup collection rapidly expanding, I’ve been searching for a new makeup bag for months and Black Friday seems the perfect opportunity to invest. The Skinnydip Exclusive Panda Makeup Bag will look so cute in my bathroom – the perfect new home for my favourite brushes! I’m a bit of a newbie when it comes to eyeshadow. I’ve always opted for a natural look but since owning the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette, that’s completely changed. I now love experimenting and I can’t wait to get my hands on the ZOEVA Smoky Palette. The darker shades will be perfect to practice my smokey eye ready for party season. Last on my list is the Alpha H Beauty Sleep Power Peel. I’m a huge Alpha H fan since discovering Liquid Gold. Grace tells me that the Power Peel is ‘like Liquid Gold on steroids’ so I’ve got high hopes!

Coming up to the festive season there could only be these products in my Black Friday haul to help me get ready for those nights out. At the very top of my list is the Sigma Ultimate Copper Eyes Brush Set to help me create the perfect smokey eye look, teaming that with the lovely Morphe 25A Copper Spice eyeshadow palette. Finally to finish off my party eye look I can’t live without the Lilly Lashes Doha 3D Mink Lashes to make my eyes really pop!

Black Friday is one of those occasions where I stock up for the year ahead on the must-have staples that are essential to my beauty routine. On my list; Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder, Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz, Mario Badescu Drying Lotion, and Peter Thomas Roth’s Pumpkin Enzyme Mask. I actually purchased the Peter Thomas Roth mask last Black Friday for the first time and the jar has lasted me a whole year so it’s time for a replen. It’s an exfoliating mask so it’s great for this time of year when my skin starts to feel dry and look a bit dull.
