“I’ve also decided to give myself a few days off for an actual holiday,” there we have some famous last words from my last post…I just had to give in and write up the Boxing Day sales as they’ve been playing on my mind since the first few e-mails arrived; in fact yesterday I was already putting together the post in my head, what with the Harrods sale starting alongside the Boots sale too. As always with sales, don’t panic buy and instead shop around and see where else the item is stocked just in case it can be found even cheaper. The Black Friday sale post was really popular and I think it was because it was put together in an easy to view list so I’m doing the same for this one. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas!
Harrods are offering up to 30% off their beauty lines with brands such as Laura Mercier, Clarins, Chantecaille and Sisley included – if you’re a Sisley fan then you’ll want to head there immediately! Make-up here – link – skincare here – link.
The Selfridges discounts aren’t that impressive unfortunately, but there’s still a bargain to be found and it’s worth just powering through the full collection to see what’s been discounted – link.
Lancome mascara sets for £15? 30% off Clinique sets? That’ll be the Boots sale, of which there are lots and lots included – link.
John Lewis seem to have a lot of “Special Buy” sets as well as the more traditional sale items, with brands such as bareMinerals and Nails Inc being seriously knocked down – link.
The Cult Beauty sale is likely to be where I’ll be spending most of my time as it’s a beauty maven’s haven (oh yes) with brands such as Lipstick Queen, Anne Semonin, Jouer and Kevyn Aucoin – if you’re looking to spend, do it here – link.
Space NK are offering up to 50% off brands such as Laura Mercier, By Terry and Becca – link.
The Nails Inc sale is pretty impressive as there’s lot included; as you’ll probably know, the range has been redesigned lately so they’re keen to get rid of the old style polishes meaning there’s plenty of bargains to be had on both old and new styles – link.
The Illamasqua sale is HUGE with between 50% and 70% off – to give you an idea, there’s a lipstick palette down from £34 to £10.20 – and the awesome Multi Facet palettes are down to £22.50 – link.
The Love Makeup sale is full of reductions, however there don’t seem to be any major discounts. Still worth checking out if you’re after Sigma brushes or OCC lip tars – link.
The Debenhams sale has a lot of gift sets, so if you didn’t get what you wanted for Christmas then here’s your chance to rectify that! Think Elemis, Philosophy and Lancome amongst many others – link.
The Feel Unique sale is another that’s absolutely huge with some impressive discounts across a lot of their stock such as Kerastase, This Works and Philip Kingsley – link.
The House of Fraser beauty sale is a bit weird as the beauty lot includes regular priced items making it tricky to navigate, but if you can face it, head here – link.
Wild About Beauty have some great make-up products and they currently have 50% off their entire collection, so if you’ve been toying with giving them a go, now’s the time – link.
The Birchbox shop has knocked down quite a few sets, including things from Benefit and Balance Me – link.
Also, don’t forget the Tom Ford Lips & Boys lippies have launched into Selfridges – this may or may not be of interest, but as someone who has been obsessing over these for a good while, I’m a happy chappy!
