The world of skincare and beauty is, well, just that — a whole wide world of brands, products, ingredients, and rituals that span countries and continents. While here at Refinery29 our beauty gurus have their manicured fingers firmly on the pulse of the latest trends and cult obsessions, there's always something new to learn from our friends overseas. So with today marking the start of the R29 UK team's first-ever flash beauty deal event, we're taking this opportunity to learn about (and, of course, bag) some of the most-loved beauty buys from across the pond.This blink-of-an-eye promotion means you've got just 24 hours to score up to 25% off a selection of popular brands and retailers— but with a fabulously British twist. When we say Ulta or Sephora, for example, a Brit might say Feelunique or Beauty Bay. And the love we stateside shoppers harness for covetable classics like Bliss Body Butter equates to that of an in-the-know English woman with a pension for Elemis' popular Pro-Collagen Marine Cream. Discover these places and products for yourself as part of this October 23rd flash sale using the code R29 or R29FLASH at checkout* and shop the top-selling stuff the team in our London HQ can't get enough of.Not only have we outlined the UK sales you can score from your very own couch (no crossing of the Atlantic required!), we've also looked into what the hype's all about with these brands and shared the exclusive R29 codes you'll need at checkout (and an additional Friends & Family sale from the Brit-approved Lookfantastic to boot).

Even as a beauty-obsessed teen, I always had a soft spot for gift sets because it made me feel like I was an influencer (in my own world) — gleefully un-boxing them as if I were revealing the contents to legions of imaginary followers. Fast-forward to the present day, when this still-obsessed adult is now hard at work combing through the best beauty gift sets actually worth your money this holiday season. I'm talking about the really glam, the really festive, the really good stuff. Whether it's fancy skin-care that sets your heart aflutter or you're all about expressing yourself through the power of makeup, I've got you covered. Also: it's worth noting that while these tend to clock in at a higher price point, the value of the products bundled together makes it worth your while — especially if you're looking to try several goods at once. Ahead, scroll into 22 of the most stunning sets that any beauty stan will obsess over. At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff.

If you’re like us, then you can’t get enough of HBO’s hit series Euphoria. The drama! Zendaya! The otherworldly eye makeup! While our teen years are thankfully behind us, we’d be lying if we said we weren’t...
From Marc Jacobs O!Mega Bronzer to Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle lipsticks, there’s currently a lot to love in Sephora’s discount section — and some of it is even half price.
Depending on how you’ve been processing the last several months, 2020 may have been the year you went from wearing makeup every day to questioning if you still know how to do a cat eye. But just because we’ve spent the majority of the year at home with zero social obligations doesn’t mean we can’t still have fun with our makeup — especially when we’re getting a serious deal. For the first time ever, CVS is holding a month-long sale on select cosmetics, skin-care, wellness, and hair-care products. Every top drugstore beauty product is being price-chopped, so if that isn’t a sign to mix things up and refresh your makeup bag, we don’t know what is. From October 25 through November 21, the CVS Beauty Don’t Stop Event is offering nationwide deals on cult-classic beauty brands, like CoverGirl and L’Oréal Paris, to trendy TikTok labels, like NYX and Pixi. Also included in the sale are CVS-exclusive brands Poparazzi and GSQ by Glamsquad, with killer BOGO offers. The deals are happening on a weekly rotation, so we recommend scoping out the entire sale in advance so you don’t miss out on your favorites. The event covers an expansive range of products, but we’ve already got our eyes on a few things we plan to shop. Thanks to TikTok (and tiredness), we’ll be grabbing the Pixi depuffing eye patches, which hit the sale section next week, along with select NYX lip products, which will be two for $11.98. Restock your favorite drugstore mascara, be it Covergirl Lashblast or Maybelline Great Lash — both tubes will be on super sale. With the seasons changing and the days getting shorter, this might be a good time to stock up on a beauty multivitamin, too. Those are just the highlights we’ve spotted so far, but you’ll find many more in store and online starting next week. You could even optimize your outing: Schedule a flu shot, then treat yourself to some new makeup and skin-care products. It’s really a win-win.
