Good news for beauty aficionados everywhere: sale season is fast approaching and the Amazon Black Friday deals are rolling in. That said, there’s a high chance that your favorite makeup, skin-care, and hair-care brands will be joining in on the fun — and we use the word “fun” intentionally as there’s nothing more joyful than snagging your favorite beauty products on sale.
And because everyone at Allure is obsessed with all things beauty, we’re already anticipating the handful (*ahem* perhaps several handfuls) of items that we’ll be adding to our Amazon shopping carts. Plus, squeezing a bottle of shampoo for a dime-sized glob of product is never fun, and stocking up on your favorites while they’re on sale is a life hack highly encouraged by our staff.
As a quick little throwback, here was a recap of Amazon’s last Black Friday: A shocking amount of beloved beauty staples participated in the online shopping event via discounts of up to 40%, including Beautyblender, Living Proof, Lorac, Pureology, Hero Cosmetics, and Olaplex. Deals extended to the luxury category, too, with Caudalie Premier Cru La Crème (which won a 2022 Best of Beauty Award) dropping from $129 to $97 while you could also snag a NuFace microcurrent sculpting device for $131 off. And we’re forecasting similar — if not better — deals for 2023.
And here’s our advice: you may want to pay attention to this curated list of best Amazon Black Friday Deals before Grinch season hits full-throttle — because the holidays have a funny way of sneaking up on you and, before you know it, you’ll be forking over full price for beauty products that could have been purchased at a steep discount instead.

Kate Somerville DeliKate Recovery Cream
Recently crowned as Allure’s favorite multitasking serum, Olay’s Super Serum is the Swiss Army Knife of skin-care products. Its peptides, antioxidants, and niacinamide can tackle most skin concerns under the sun, including fine lines, skin dullness, and free-radical damage.
Kate Somerville’s DeliKate Recovery Cream is to irritate skin what aloe is to sunburn. This moisturizer’s peptide and ceramide-packed formula alleviates redness and irritation by calming and hydrating the skin.

When an iconic mascara goes on sale, you add it to your cart — that’s just how it goes. And for the length and volume Maybelline New York’s Lash Sensational Sky High Washable Mascara deposits with each swipe, it’s worth every penny.
If you’ve ever wanted to inject a dose of radiance into your makeup routine, add L’Oréal Paris’s Makeup True Match Lumi Glotion to your kit, stat. This glowy-tinted lotion can be used alone or with makeup for a luminous filter effect.
