Memorial Day Weekend is coming, also known as the unofficial kickoff to summer. This means Memorial Day beauty sales are on deck, many of which begin on Friday and run through Monday. But this week's best beauty sales are perfect for those of you who have beachside or BBQ plans all weekend and might not have time to slip away to shop.
As always, the sale vertical on the Sephora site is packed with worthwhile markdowns. Ulta's "Buy More, Save More" promotion has populated with some excellent new BOGO sales. The retailer is also in the middle of its Ulta Gorgeous Hair Event, where hair products and tools from prestige brands are half-price. These sales change on the daily so don't delay if you need to stock up conditioner, masks, styling creams, and more.
The "Goodbyes" section of MAC's site is jam packed with several new sale items, most of which are discontinued products. Gorgeous lipsticks, delicious scrubs, and the Patrick Starrrr eyeshadow palettes are offered at a deep discount.
