It’s the most wonderful time of the year, also known as the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day when all of our favorite beauty brands have can’t-miss sales. We’ve been keeping track of a few select labels, but few compare to the markdowns offered by the head honcho of beauty stores big and small. Sephora’s end of year sale for 2018 is officially on and the deals are not to be passed over.
Like the always-anticipated Black Friday and Cyber Monday events, this one is just as important, though the markdowns are a bit more exclusive. First, in order to take advantage of the year-end sale, you’ll need to be a Beauty Insider. The good news is joining this tiered system is completely free to join and the more money you spend at the retailer, the more rewards you get to enjoy. This one in particular is open to all Beauty Insiders, so even if you sign up now, you can still jump on this days-long sale.
From now until the end of the day on January 1, you can earn an extra 20 percent off all sale items. That means you’re getting a double discount on a huge amount of hair, skin and makeup faves, like MAKE UP FOR EVER’S HD Foundation and Becca’s limited-edition sets with Chrissy Teigen. All you have to do is enter the code TWENTYOFF at checkout. As for how to shop the year-end sale, we recommend snagging a handful of sets so you can test-drive new products without committing to a full-size. Ahead are our top favorites. Grab ’em while they’re still around.
