Labor Day 2015 Beauty Sale Round-Up (Updated Regularly)

It's the last big hurrah for summer, and that also means that, when it comes to beauty sales, it's one of the last big hurrahs before Black Friday (because we ALL know how crazy the beauty deals get on Black Friday!). Be sure to bookmark this page and keep checking back because I guarantee that this list will grow as we move toward the weekend.

As always, this list is only as good as we make it, and these holiday sale round-ups are always a group effort. If you know of any Labor Day beauty sales not already featured below, please, please help us all out and leave your tips in the comments. Thank you SO much!
