Green Monday (AKA: Cyber Monday Part 2) Beauty Deal Round-Up

LAST UPDATE: 1:00PM Pacific, 12/14/15.

For those unfamiliar with the term "Green Monday," it has nothing to do with Earth Day. This is a term coined by eBay back in 2007, in reference to the second Monday of December, which is generally considered the second-busiest shopping day of the year (after Black Friday). We're getting down the to wire here for online holiday shopping and very soon--in some cases, starting tomorrow--you'll have to pay extra for guaranteed delivery before Christmas.

Green Monday is also referred to as "Cyber Monday Part 2" because some retailers will once again offer us their original Cyber Monday deals today (as is the case with The Body Shop, as you'll see below). Other retailers give us a whole new crop of deals, so I wanted to put together a quick list of the Green Monday beauty deals that I know about so far. I'll update this list today if new deals come through, but if YOU hear of any great Green Monday beauty deals not featured in this list, I would, as always, be so grateful if you'd leave a comment below and helped us out!

  1. Laura Geller is having a secret sale! Just search "secret sale" in the search bar. Also, get an extra 25% off with the code DECBDAY25. I can't get enough of her blushes.

    1. Thank you SO much, Louise! Adding to the list now! xo

    2. Do you know if this is today only?

  2. Colourpop has $5 off with code ELFEDUP, and they also have several Christmas value sets.

    1. Thank you, Leticia! I totally forgot about ColourPop (how?!?!?!). Adding to the list now! xo

  3. Remember Ebates has doubled and sometimes tripled some of the cash back offers.. Most of the sales you mentioned here have really outstanding cash back deals... So make sure you all check that first because it's making some awesome deals. I tagged you in Instagram under my pen name BargainsandBeauty.

  4. I was at Ulta and the Stila holiday palette was $28 (originally $40)

  5. Sedona lace 50% off site wide.

  6. Woohoo! Just placed an order for Kiko! I've never tried them before, but some of the skincare was SO cheap, and with the free shipping (plus $5 off when you sign up for email) I was able to get a mask and cleansing milk for a total of just over $3!!!

  7. Thank you G! That Clinique deal is perfect timing :) I already got my makeup deals from Black Friday thanks to you, now I can get my skincare too, with awesome freebies, yay!

  8. Wow, just got my moms favorite perfume (Beautiful by Este√® Lauder) from Perfumania for $45, that's $30 off regular price!!! Thanks so much G, your blog never dissapoints!! ❤️❤️

  9. I looked for the z palette deal on Amazon and I can't find it! Were you able to?

    1. I completely forgot to set a reminder this morning for it! The thumbnail pic in the "upcoming deals" pic from yesterday was of this one:

      But it looks like, whatever the deal was, it's over now. So bummed!! :(

  10. Gilt City( Nationwide) has a code for 30$ off 80$ at clinique.

    1. Oooh thank you, Randi! Will do a post! xo

    2. Ah man, I just checked and it's already sold out. Bummer! Hope you were able to get one, and thanks again! Hopefully they do it again soon. :)

    3. Well this is so weird--I checked again just now and it's letting me order! Yay!! Doing a post now! xo

  11. I got it, but I don't know if I'll use it. I really love that Take the day off cleansing balm, but I do NOT need it. I cleaned out my closet yesterday and found 3 bottles of Body Shop cleansing oil. I'm probably set for awhile. I also want to try that Garnier Micellar water but I probably have 12 bottles of the simple in my cabinet. ( got a great deal with coupons, extra bucks).
