In case it wasn't clear from the fact that we sponsor a round of Readers' Choice Awards every year, we think pretty highly of your opinions here at Allure. And based on what Allure readers are buying during Cyber Week, it's clear that esteem is well-deserved. We've been writing about a lot of Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2019 sales and we can't help but notice that you readers have gone right to the heart of it, picking out the best of the bunch.
Your taste is so discerning, in fact, that we figured we should provide a little cheat sheet so you can all learn from each other's well-honed shopping skills. With that in mind, we rounded up this epic shopping week's 13 most popular beauty buys, including a Kylie Cosmetics eye shadow palette shimmering with holiday pinks, a blemish-banishing drying lotion from Mario Badescu, Too Faced iconic Better Than Sex mascara, and much, much more. These are the items cropping up on the lists of Allure readers more than any other.
