Black Friday

Don’t miss these Black Friday Cyber Monday Beauty Deals for 2017

By  | 

Darlings, we can’t believe it, but the holiday shopping season is here!  Black Friday is Nov. 24, 2017 followed by the online shopping festival of Cyber Monday on Nov. 27 , 2017.   As is our habit here at The Recessionista, our entire team is busily compiling our list of bargains that we like and making our recommendations.  Our shopping philosophy is simple, we want the best for less with an emphasis on fashion and beauty bargains. You won’t see our staff over at the big box store at 4 am or some other ridiculous hour fighting over a big screen TV.  We have our standards!  This post is all about some of the beauty deals turning up on our radar.  Long time readers know, we will continue to update this list through Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so bookmark this post and check back often.

According to Accenture research, more holiday shopping will occur online this year than in stores.   Most shoppers prefer to shop from the comfort of their own homes using their computer or mobile device.   That means you may have to be more competitive that ever to get the online deals, because more people maybe pointing and clicking.

These beauty deals are products we have actually tried and think provide good value for consumers.  Here’s what’s on our list so far.
