Now that your holiday shopping for everyone else is over, it’s time to unwrap something for yourself—and what better place to treat yourself than the Sephora after-Christmas sale 2020? Now’s your chance to snag the beauty buys you’ve been lusting after, but that Santa somehow missed the memo on this year.
The discounts at the beauty mecca—which include up to 50% off coveted brands like Fenty Beauty, Anastasia Beverly Hills, and Mario Badescu—are truly great this time of year. The Sephora after-Christmas sale overlaps with its huge Sephorathon month-long event, so on top of those glittery discounts in the sale section, you can get an additional 20% off sale items with code MAJORSALE (and did they lie?). It is, in fact, major, and the deals are happening through January 1 while supplies last. (Just make sure you’re logged your into Beauty Insider account to redeem the offer).
We’ll cut right to the chase because the gift sets, hair tools, and skincare product deals definitely won’t stay in stock for long. Ahead, our list of the 13 best deals from the Sephora after-Christmas sale 2020 has to offer.
In case you’ve already had your fill of beauty products and want to spend your Christmas money elsewhere, make sure to check out our running list of the best after-Christmas sales for the best discounts on fashion, home, and tech stuff.
If you’re here for all things Riri, the beauty mogul’s groundbreaking makeup brand, Fenty Beauty, is delivering on rare discounts you won’t want to miss. From New Year’s Eve-ready lip gloss to the ever-versatile Matchstix Trio, there’s something for every kind of vibe.
For anyone looking to round out their winter skin care regimen, you’ll want to get in on top-rated cleansers, face mists, and moisturizers from Kiehl’s, Mario Badescu, and Kate Somerville. You can even scoop up a bestselling at-home teeth whitening kit from Glo Science, which will keep your smile bright into the new year. And don’t forget to scoop up handbag essentials from Fresh (like the iconic Sugar Lip Treatment nobody ever gets tired of), and essential brush sets to replace the old ones you never got around to cleaning.
Two other Sephora after-Christmas sale highlights include the Mini Opulust Lip Gloss Trio from Pat McGrath Labs (which rarely goes on sale), the bestselling Stila Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow which packs a punch with a single swipe across the lid, and the O!Mega Bronzer Coconut Perfect Tan from Marc Jacobs Beauty (ideal for faking a sun kissed glow in the dead of winter with no vacation in sight).
As for that no makeup-makeup look, there’s no better time to stock up on lightweight foundations and subtle highlighter that will make your features pop on Zoom while still keeping your routine low-key. We’re loving this Clean Volumizing Mascara and Hydrating Lip Set from Kosas Beauty, and this Skin Love Weightless Blur Foundation from Becca Cosmetics.
If your blow dryer needs an upgrade, add T3’s Cura Professional Digital Ionic Hair Dryer to cart. The digitally-controlled wide volume hair dryer is enhanced with negative-ions to dry hair quickly with soft, healthy-looking results. For those looking for more bounce and curl, T3’s award-winning styling wand is the answer. The three barrels let you create an array of different hair lewks (from loose, beachy waves to big Old Hollywood curls) and rings in at $250 instead of $300.
If you’re looking to pad out your top shelf with some cult beauty products, the Ouai Get Your Ouai Set guarantees good-hair-days ahead. And if you’ve somehow managed to make it to the end of the year without indulging in a luxurious face mask, it’s never too late to pamper yourself. Top-rated formulas from Origins are up for grabs, and you can rejuvenate your skin with scrubs and treatments from Clinique and Glamglow.
Finally, if your counting on the best Sephora after-Christmas deals to upgrade your vanity with new fragrance and body care, there’s good news on that front as well, courtesy of Givenchy, Sephora Collection, and Voluspa (don’t sleep on pretty candle trios that will keep the vibes high as you enter 2021).
