The holidays aren’t only a time of year for shopping but also a time for getting together with family and friends, entertaining and, let’s face it, looking your best. Finding the products to get the look you’re going for, or the beauty-inspired gifts for those on your shopping list, won’t be too hard if you know where to look. Here are retailers with some of the biggest discounts on beauty products this Black Friday:  

Makeup Deals on Black Friday


Macy’s shoppers know there are only a few times a year that cosmetics go for sale prices. Starting at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving and continuing until 1 p.m. on Black Friday, Macy’s will offer big deals on popular makeup lines. Find Estee Lauder, Lancome and Origins discounted up to 70%. Estee Lauder’s three-piece mascara set is $32.50 off the regular price and you can find $71 off a Lancome lip gloss and lip color set. Major discounts on Clinique (40% off a moisture set and 75% off a Happy-On-the-Go set) are among the Black Friday sale’s doorbusters, which will continue on Saturday until 1 p.m.   

Ulta’s Black Friday ad hasn’t leaked yet, but when it does you can expect big savings on products for hair care, nail care and skin care, plus many lines of makeup. In 2014, Ulta had some great Black Friday deals, so if this year’s sale is similar, you can expect big deals on Urban Decay (half off mascaras), Benefit ($10 for a travel brush set), Smashbox and Ulta-brand cosmetics.   


This retailer cuts prices in half for all Bliss beauty products, a New York City-based brand that sells everything from skin care products to nail polish to waxing and facial kits. The Bliss sale starts when Kohl’s Black Friday sale kicks off at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving.

Cutting Costs on Razors and Shavers

Whether buying for yourself or getting a loved one a gift you know he wouldn’t splurge on for himself, shavers are hot items this Black Friday. We looked at prices across the board for this year’s Black Friday sales on electric razors and shavers:

Best Buy

This retailer doesn’t have the widest selection, but the electronics store has some of the best prices. The Philips Norelco 4100 is discounted to $34.99 (from $64.99) while a Braun shaver is offered at 50% off the original price of $299.99.


Kohl’s has some go-to prices on shavers, too. You’ll pay $24.99 for the Philips Norelco 2300 rotary shaver (regularly $79.99) and only $69.99 for the Philips Norelco 6500 (down from $179.99).


Deals on this website cover more shavers in stock than shoppers can keep track of. Amazon hasn’t released any official Black Friday ads that show men’s razors, but here is an idea of what the going prices are online: a Philips Norelco 6948XL 2100 shaver costs $29.95 and a Philips Norelco PT724/46 3100 shaver goes for $39.97.


Starting at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving, you’ll find the Norelco 4100 wet/dry shaver for $34.99. Target’s Black Friday ad claims this is the lowest price on the shavers all year.

Black Friday Discounts on Fragrances and Perfumes

People love finding their special scent and sticking to it. Fragrances and perfumes rarely are sold at bargain prices, so Black Friday is prime time for finding fragrance gifts and also trying new ones. Don’t be alarmed to find the discounts on perfumes really aren’t much compared to steals on other products. Here are some stores we think are offering the best deals on the season’s latest scents:


Increasingly known for its beauty products, Kohl’s has sales on perfumes, though the bargains aren’t as big as on the store’s other discounted items. Find Vera Wang for $64 (regularly $73). Most fragrances at this retailer are discounted at about $7 on average.


The department store offers Jay Z Gold perfume for 45% off the regular price of $74.  Vince Camuto perfume is discounted by 40% off and you can get 50% off the Michael Kors Collection fragrance. Calvin Klein fragrance, for both him and her, is marked down $15 at Macy’s.  


Target also has a special sale on perfume, where you’ll find incentive to stock up. This retailer has a deal to buy one and get one 50% off on all designer fragrances for both men and women.
