The Lipstick League - Week of 11.14.16

The Lipstick League Question of the Week: 

When it comes to Black Friday/Cyber Monday, which brand’s sales are you looking forward to the most? 

G's answer: I'm always excited to see what Too Faced has in store for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, since they have previously offered fun sets at a deep discount. But I'm also super excited for the little deals (under $20) that usually pop up for Cyber Monday. I was thinking back to last year and remembered that for Cyber Monday 2015, Origins offered their Super Stars Mini Set for $15 + free shipping (originally $35; $91 value) and I got a lot of mileage out of that set (I literally JUST finished the last of the products about a month ago). So the little deals are often more exciting to me than the bigger deals!

  1. Without a doubt....the sets at Sephora, Ulta, Khol's (Real Technique brush sets at 50% off) and Macy's. The small sets make me so happy!!! Can't wait!!!!

    1. I agree! I am addicted to those small sets, girl! ;)

  2. I am totally excited about the Anastasia Beverly Hills 10% off Glow Kits! Even though that is not a huge discount, those things are AMAZING!!!

    1. Oh, speaking of ABH, did you see my recent update to that listing in my Black Friday/Cyber Monday round-up? They revealed even more deals! :)

  3. I SWORE I was not going to buy anything for myself this season. So far, I've bought a l'occitane advent calendar for Julie, a camelia cleansing oil( Tatcha) with 20% off, the Bare Minerals Best wishes palette( Ulta, 5x points and I had a 15.00 gift card), The Kat Von D everlasting lip set with the 20% sephora discount and a few other random things here and there. I need NOTHING and we're moving in 2 weeks(yay). It will also help that I will be in Mexico for my 50th bday( Dec 2nd) on Cyber Monday. We leave the Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend. IIRC, your bday is close to mine. Any plans?

    1. Aaaw, that's a sweet gift for Julie! And CONGRATS on the big move! Yay!!! I bet you're so excited to get settled into the new place. :)

      And yup, my b-day is 12/13. Yay for Sagittarians! Happy, happy birthday in the advance, Randi!!!! How fun that you're going to Mexico. What part?

      As for plans for my b-day, unfortunately that is always the exact time that Mr. G is in the midst of grading final papers and exams (darn you, colleges, always scheduling the end of the semester right around my birthday. Lol). So we'll probably just go out to dinner and a movie on that Friday. That's when Rogue One premieres (he's a big Star Wars fan so I'm sure we'll see that, and I'm dying to see Nocturnal Animals and Moana). We plan on taking a serious, real vacation during the winter break in January, before Mr G starts teaching winter session, which will probably include a road trip to your neck of the woods or further north. I have always wanted to stay at the Madonna Inn (been on my bucket list forever) so we're trying to plan something.

      I want to stay in either the Carin room (pink, pink and more pink! Even the toilet is pink):

      or the Rock Bottom room (check out that bathroom):

      But honestly, any of the rooms would be so fun. The Kona Room has a shower entirely made of rock--I'm totally obsessed with it. :)

    2. Thank You, I can't wait to move and get settled. Its been touch and go with our buyer and her funding. It was not looking good there for about a week and we were stressing. Our condo should have closed a few weeks ago and we were supposed to have a huge rent back( thankfully, we don't have to now). We're now supposed to close on the house at the same time the condo closes. We're going to Loreto, Mexico. Its on the sea of Cortez. My aunt and uncle have a timeshare there and are taking us.

    3. Oh and that hotel looks amazing.

  4. Hey G! Beauty brands has the $9.99, 19 piece haircare bag in stock right now. But with code ec13576 (30% off) the bag is $6.99. Check out the liter sales on hmep and $5 hair products too!!

  5. I'm gonna try to nab the Cover FX set at Sephora for $10 and the Clarisonic set for $10. Those are the 2 that I'm most excited about. Also interested in the Better Than Sex Lash On and Off set, the Pretty Little Lippies by Tarte, and the Clinique take the day off set. I also want the Estee Lauder Mini Doublewear set at Belk (love my DW foundation!), and the UD Shadow Box might sneak in there too. I've been looking to branch out of my warm toned neutrals that I usually use and into something a little more colorful. This one wouldn't break the bank :)
