IMPORTANT UPDATES for Cyber Monday and Beyond (Sephora, Ulta, Macy's, Nordstrom and More)

I had to take a little break from updating my round-up after the Black Friday madness, but I just wanted to let you know that I'm in the process of updating the list now for the "next phase" of Cyber Monday deals, so expect a big update tomorrow morning (11/27). It's not over yet, my lovelies!

In the meantime, a few tidbits to tide you over:


The Sephora Cyber Monday landing page HERE has not yet been updated as of the time of publication. I do not know if they'll post a preview before the deals go live, but hopefully they will. This year's Black Friday deals for Sephora went live at around 2AM Pacific on Black Friday, so I suspect that they'll go live around that time for Cyber Monday (2AM Pacific on 11/28 and you know I will post when they're up)!

What can we expect to see from Sephora on Cyber Monday?

If their offerings are anything like last year, then we can probably expect to see about a dozen special online-only deals (value sets, duos and the like). Also, Cyber Monday is the day that Sephora will be releasing the Too Faced White Chocolate Chip Palette ($26). If you click that link, right now it is showing as out of stock and for VIBs only. I do not know any more than that at this point. Also, the new Smashbox Covershot Eyeshadow Palettes ($29) should also be available for Cyber Monday (right now they're showing as out of stock and only available for Rouge. I do not know any more about that right now).

What can you get RIGHT NOW at Sephora?

There is a new Holiday Deluxe Sample Bag (8 samples and a bag) that you can get right now for free with your $25 online purchase. Just enter code VERYMERRY at checkout. This should be in stock for Cyber Monday if it's anything like last year's bag. I'm guessing this will be a one-time-only freebie, meaning you probably won't be able to use that code with multiple orders (though I haven't tried it yet to see). But you can check my round-up for other deluxe freebie codes.

The Black Friday sets HERE are still in stock as of the time of publication, and there are still quite a few good deals on the Sephora Sale Page HERE including Formula X polishes and sets for $5 (thanks to everyone who took the time to let me know about that!) the Becca blush palette for $17 and more.

PLEASE NOTE: the Urban Decay After Dark Travel Pencil Set has been lowered to $10 HERE (it was originally $19 when the Black Friday deals went live). Thanks to everyone who took the time to let me know about that one!

What can you get at Sephora in the very near future?

Sephora 2016 Loyalty Reward Announcement 

The Sephora Loyalty Reward event is coming! Thanks so much to reader Katie for sharing the announcement she received this week. As you can see, this year's Loyalty Rewards breakdown is as follows:

Beauty Insiders: 
$15 OFF $50 - VALID 12/2 - 12/13

$20 OFF $50 - VALID 12/2 - 12/14

$25 OFF $50 - VALID 12/2 - 12/14

PLEASE READ THIS: The actual gift card/pin numbers have not been mailed or emailed yet. They will be sent on December 2nd. If you're new to the Loyalty Rewards event, you will receive an email and/or snail mail on 12/2 containing a unique gift card # and pin # to use either in-store or online during your specific dates as listed above. Since this is treated like a gift card and not a promo code, you will enter the info on the checkout page in the "Payment Method" box, not the promo code box. In other words, you will still be able to use a deluxe freebie code with this discount. This is a ONE TIME ONLY DISCOUNT, meaning you cannot use it multiple times within your date range. So plan wisely! If you are registered at Sephora and you do not receive an email or snail mail on December 2nd, you should be able to call Sephora Customer Service and get a unique pin number over the phone (I heard from MANY of you last year who were able to do this, no problem). There should be no exclusions to this discount.


UPDATE: The Ulta Cyber Monday landing page HERE and the preview is now live!

What can we expect to see from Ulta on Cyber Monday?

As you can see, the Cyber Monday deals will go live at 9PM Central on 11/27. I will of course remind you of this and post here on the blog when they're up. According to the banner, there will be 100+ deals, and these should all be online-only deals (remember: it's called Cyber Monday). I suspect that they will keep the free shipping on orders $35+ going for Cyber Monday. Also, I'm guessing that there will be free beauty bags available with your $50 purchase (I'm guessing on the threshold--it could be higher or lower, of course).

UPDATE: All of the details about the bag, discount code, etc. are right here. Click HERE to see my personal recs.

What can you get RIGHT NOW at Ulta?

Some of the deals that I posted about yesterday are still valid as of time of publication:

What can you get at Ulta in the very near future?

I have heard from several readers (some who work at Ulta, some who have spoken to Ulta employees) that there will be another 20% off coupon sent to customers within the next few weeks. This should be valid on most prestige cosmetics, but I'm not sure if it will apply to fragrance (fingers crossed).


The Nordstrom Cyber Monday landing page HERE does not have any previews. But the sale SHOULD start at around Midnight Pacific on 11/28 (I will of course post here when I see that it's live). The Beauty deals in particular should be listed HERE (this link is still showing the active Black Friday beauty deals as of time of publication).

What can we expect to see from Nordstrom on Cyber Monday?

As always, free shipping on all orders at Nordstrom, and right now they're giving us a 5 free mystery samples with all beauty purchases. the CHANEL freebie code is no longer working, per many of you who tried to use it today, and the Black Friday freebie beauty gift is no longer available either.

Here is the list of Cyber Monday deals that I was sent from Nordstrom's PR:
  • 25-34% off Beauty Tools
  • MAC Look-in-a-Box (Natural Flare) for $56.50 (value of $140)
  • Bobbi Brown Art Stick (Dusty Pink) + High Shimmer Lip Gloss (Spun Gold) for $28 (value of $54)
  • Beauty Blender Set of 2 Beauty Blender Pro Sponges for $32 (value of $40)
  • DryBary I Heart Road-trips Set for $25 (value of $47)
  • Philosophy Purity Made Simple Duo (Home & Away Set) for $15 (value of $27)
  • GHD Nordstrom Exclusive Bundle – Platinum & Copper Luxe Set for $299.99 (value of $388)
  • Neulash DUO – Cyber Monday DUO for $150 (value of $245)
  • Mario Badescu Home & Away Facial Spray Duo for $17.00 (value of $33)
  • Ahava More Mineral Hand Cream Duo for $28 (value of $52)
  • Trish McEvoy Lip Perfector & New Ultra Wear Pink Lip Gloss for $38 (value of $60)
  • Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte’s Instant Party Eyes Three Piece Set for $49 (value of $58)
  • Revitalash Buy 1, Get 1 Free (mini) for $55 (value of $110)
  • Oribe Gold Lust Oil, Gold Lust Dry Shampoo, Dry Texturing Spray for $52 (value of $72)
I would also expect that there will be additional sets available, not listed above, when the deals go live (or they may add them later in the day on Monday).

What can you get RIGHT NOW at Nordstrom?

The Black Friday beauty deals that are still in stock are HERE. There are many gifts-with-purchase still available right now as well. Also, the Jouer Limited Edition Long-Wear Crème Liquid Lipstick Trio is back in stock HERE for $34; $54 value (sold out at Beautylish and other places). And the Urban Decay UD XX: 30 Years of Beauty With an Edge Vintage Vault is back in stock at Nordstrom (sold out elsewhere).

What can you get at Nordstrom in the very near future?

If you signed up for Nordstrom Rewards when they were offering that $10 in credit (sorry, that promo has now ended) to be used during the holidays in-store or online at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack or HauteLook, then you should be getting an email any minute now letting you know that the $10 credit is in your Nordstrom account. I have heard from a handful of readers today (thank you!) who let me know that they received their credit today. So keep checking. Also, please don't be angry if you missed that promo--I tried to get the word out several times here on my blog and on social media when it was still available, but hopefully they'll run another on after the holidays and I'll try (again) to get the word out! Also, Nordstrom may run some holiday deals on beauty or a special gift-with-purchase as we get closer to Christmas, so stay tuned.


I'm not sure when the Macy's Cyber Monday deals will go live (again, I'll post here when I see that they're up) but the Cyber Monday landing page HERE is still showing the current Black Friday deals as of the time of publication.

What can we expect to see from Macy's on Cyber Monday?

I expect that there will be several special beauty deals on Cyber Monday from a variety of brands, and of course free shipping on all beauty orders (that's all year around, of course). I don't know if code CHANEL still works to get you a free Chanel sample with all orders, but definitely try it. I also except to see some special beauty gifts-with-purchase during this sale, because Macy's always offers those during their sale events.

What can you get RIGHT NOW at Macy's?

As of the time of publication, you can still get all of the Macy's Black Friday deals HERE (per the website, these are ENDING SOON). And if you don't see these listed in that section (I haven't checked today), there are also the following Tarte deals still in stock (ENDING SOON):

What can you get at Macy's in the very near future?

I have no doubt that Macy's will run additional beauty sales as we get closer to the holidays, so stay tuned.


Belk should be running Cyber Monday beauty deals as well on 11/28 (I don't know when they will go live but I'll post!). Free shipping on all beauty orders at Belk and their Black Friday deals are still available HERE as of the time of publication. PLEASE NOTE that the $8 UD Primer Potions are still in stock; sold out elsewhere.

  12. Hi! I have been stalking the Sephora page for the White Chocolate Chip palette and it is now listed as out of stock! Not sure if they are doing this prior to the release or if it released and people already ordered it!

  13. Do you know if the Nordstrom $10 applies to are already signed up as well or just those who signed during the promotion? I signed up the last time they did the $10 during the semi annual sale and was curious to know if

I'm in their loyallist program (cuz of you!) so I got free shipping AND the ebates app is doing 9% cash back!! So it was like paying $35 instead of $49! Couldn't say no!! Thanks G!

  19. With MAC site, not seeing the option for 5 samples or cyber sample with any purchase. I put code Sample in and am only able to pick one sample from list. Am I reading this wrong?

  20. The Too Faced White Chocolate Chip Palette is now live for EVERYONE at Sephora! Thought this might be helpful for anyone reading who saw that it STILL wasn't available to non-Rouge members earlier this morning.
