Black Friday Beauty Picks 2018

Black Friday Beauty Picks 2018

I think this is my fourth year doing my Black Friday Deals round up, as seemingly always is the case now Black Friday offers start dropping before actual Friday. These posts always feel like such a mad rush to get through and get up ASAP for you before all the good items go. This year I feel like brands have got better offers than ever and there’s so much good beauty things on sale, ready to be snapped up. So this is my biggest roundup of brands ever, and I’ll be attempting to add to this list (or do follow up posts!) with any further items.

Cult Beauty

Cult Beauty are back with a similar deal as last year with three discounts codes when you spend different amounts.

15% off when you spend £20 with code Blackout15
20% off when you spend £100 with code Blackout20
25% off when you spend £250 with code Blackout25

My top picks would be
Drunk Elephant take that discount whilst you can – the sets would make a fab Christmas present (I’ve got one on my list!)
Huda the New Nude Palette
ABH Sultry Palette
ABH Norvina Palette
Stila 3D Dazzle Mini Magnificent Metals Set – I picked this up a few weeks ago and it’s great if you want to try the formula, you get three mini shades for just over the price of one full size.

Beauty Bay

Beauty Bay have been running incredible deals across their site since last week. I did a full post already on my favourite picks from the Sale (which you can find here). But they have up to 30% off a lot of brands, and are running special deals on selected items for a limited time. They have confirmed to me that this is their final restock of items (some items have been in and out of stock since last week) and what is now on the site is what they have available (at least at sale prices), so if you see a deal and like the price grab it whilst you can.

I’ve splurged on a few items from the Sale and bought some Christmas presents for others too. I snagged their Going Out Out Palette which is new during the sale and was reduced from £30 to £21. I also finally picked up the Juvia’s Place Mini Masquerade Palette for £15 (it’s now gone back up to £21). But there are loads of deals on Juvia’s Place Palettes overall which you can find here.  I snagged my favourite foundation (Jouer High Coverage) at a fab discount of over £10.00 down from £34.00 to £23.79.

All Beauty Bay Deals can be found here.


ASOS have 20% off everything on their site with discount code with the code ‘HELLO20’. That’s on clothes/beauty/shoes/jewellery/homeware. Everything.

In terms of beauty, ASOS stock a fabulous range of beauty brands – I’m not sure on the deals these brands will have by on their own sites – but if deals are being ran and they are out of stock – you can try ASOS for finding those in stock –

MAC Cosmetics on ASOS
Too Faced on ASOS
Bobbi Brown on ASOS
Pixi on ASOS
The Ordinary on ASOS
Lime Crime on ASOS

Boots have deals across the site for Black Friday which you can find here – they’ve got everything from perfume to hairdryers on sale. It’s a fab time to do some Christmas shopping. There’s no discount codes for anything not on Sale on the website.

Panasonic Hairdryer – Down from £109.99 to £49.99 – Over Half Price
YSL Mon Paris 50ml – Normally £60, Now £34
Benefit Complexionista Palette – £26.50, Now £13.25

View all Black Friday Deals here


Same as Boots, no blanket discount codes but lots of good deals across the site. Another fab place to look at doing some Christmas Shopping.

Loreal Lash Paradise Mascara and Primer Duo – Normally £19.99 Now £9.99 (Mascara alone is normally £12.99)
Dolce and Gabanna The Only One 50ml – Normally £70 Now £46 – I spoke about this in my Secret Scent Box Review (I’m very tempted to get this!)
All Makeup Offers
All Fragrance Offers

John Lewis

I feel like John Lewis could be somewhere that’s easily overlooked when it comes to Beauty Offers – but because they price match, you can find the same deals that are found elsewhere on John Lewis’ website. This may make it a fab place to check if another retailer is out of stock of an item. They also have some good deals across home and electricals too (or even 20% off Mulberry!), so if you’re Black Friday hunt is extending past beauty John Lewis is a fab place to shop for big ticket items as their customer service is always good after.

Urban Decay Naked Cherry Palette – 15% off £35.70
John Lewis Beauty Advent Calendar Down from £150 to £115 – this is my favourite beauty calendar I’ve seen this year
All Beauty Offers
All Black Friday Offers

Charlotte Tilbury

Limited offers from Charlotte Tilbury this year but they have up to 40% off their kits. Prices range on discount – but if you have a Charlotte Tilbury lover in your life (or you are one). Then you’ll know items are rarely on sale or discounted, and the sets are a really nice give to gift (or a present to me, from me)!

Beauty Pie

First month free if you subscribe to Beauty Pie – they rarely do offers on joining memberships and now do a mini-month membership which is just £5. I’ve been trying a lot of cleansers from Beauty Pie and have found a few favourites which has made me very tempted to sign up to a mini and let the membership roll over for a few months until I’m ready for a big restock.

I hope you enjoyed that, it’s my biggest roundup of different brands to date. I will be doing another sweep later in the day and will see if I can find any other amazing deals to share with you. Or if any new retailers start their Black Friday offers later than the rest.

Have you treated yourself to anything this Black Friday?

    Great post Rach. I got a Drunk Elephant set but sadly the Huda Nude palette was gone. My partner got me the Bobbi Brown Xmas highlighter on Asos as the offer got ten pound off x

      Ahh man! I’ve got a Drunk Elephant set coming for Christmas which I’m excited for! Shame that the Huda Palette had sold out though 🙁 The Bobbi Brown Christmas Collection is so pretty this year!

    Just wanted to let you know that I picked up the Danglefoot polishes Loki and God of Thunder in Beautometry’s Black Friday sale – they are offering 30% off with code BFCM18. Maybe some of your other US readers will want to snatch the polishes you featured a bit ago :] I think that’s the only Black Friday shopping I will be doing today, though your list is tempting me!!!

    Sadly Huda Beauty was exempted from the Cultbeauty sale but I got quite a few bits from the BeautyBay sale that had been on my wishlist for a while.
