A Guide to Sephora's 2014 $10 Black Friday Deals

Sephora released their annual $10 Black Friday deals on Pinterest earlier this week (you can see their album here), but I only managed to catch them today. Happy Thanksgiving, procrastinators! If you're trying to decide which items are a good deal, I have organized them from best to worst value.

Unlike previous years, all items have a calculable value, meaning there are no trashy brush sets that are probably worth $1.50 polluting the mix. Additionally, every set is worth more than the $10 purchase price.

My picks:

I think the Art of Shaving Kit is a great little inexpensive stocking stuffer, the Bare Minerals duo is lovely for anyone who wants to experience the awesomeness of their eyeshadow, and the Tarte kit is likely worth it, if only for the blush.


  1. You are back. Yay!!!!!

    Thanks for the price breakdown. I always snag a few of these black friday deals every year for myself and for stocking stuffers and it is nice to see how the value actually works out.

  2. great breakdown! I'm jealous the Ole wipes are only $5, they are double that in Canada, which works out to a dollar a wipe... and means the deal basically gives the cleanser for free.

  3. Helpful! I have missed seeing this site updated, so thanks for coming back!

  4. This convinced me to add the Nest set! Thanks for taking the time to do these calculations :D

  5. The Nest set is mislabeled. Sephora says that it's 3 x .6 oz, but the image/box label shows that it's .6 oz total (.2 oz each).

  6. I was able to snatch the Tarte set after he kept going out of stock - yay!

  7. Thanks, did not know about these deals. Have wanted to try Bite Beauty lipsticks, and the Tarte set looks wonderful. Glad to see your review, Robyn. Have missed readin' ya.'

  8. Why are the 2 Formula X sets different prices? They look the same (except for colors)

  9. Wow! I had no idea there were this many! I went black friday shopping at the largest mall in my state and they only carried about half of these, would have loved that Bareminerals or Tarte set. :(
    I still picked up a formula x duo for my mom and the shaving set for my boyfriend. :)

  10. Edit: The Nest fragrances are 0.2 fl oz each and 0.6 oz total on my box :)

  11. Your calculation should be correct, though, since it's worth around $66 canadian.

  12. I love how you do these price breakdowns they are awesome!!

  13. Thank you for an awesome post and welcome back!

  14. I've been pulling up old posts and all of the pictures are missing. (Like the eyeshadow primer analysis and the Lorac Mint Edition review.) Maybe it's just me ...

  15. Welcome back! And thanks very much for the price breakdowns :)

  16. Music is an amazing thing. The right inspiring lyrics, or motivational songs can give you a kick in the backside. Making you full of inspiration.

  17. what's wrong with your older photos? the pictures are unavailable

    1. This comment has been removed by the author.

  18. I hate to say it, but I think it's time to remove this blog from my bookmarks :(

  19. I miss your blog updates! you are a hilarious writer, and in a world of nonsense beauty advice, your blog is awesome. Hope you come back soon :)

  20. I miss your posts! I really enjoy your blog and I know you are busy as the rest of us but your postings are delightful.

  21. HI Robyn,

    To chime in with the others, I miss your posts. You were (are?) my favorite makeup blogger. No one else has the combination of honesty, snark and sharp observations. Come back?!?!?? Pretty please, but only if you feel like it.

    Happy 2015!

    a Loyal Lurking Reader who checks back often in hope

  22. Robyn, wherever you went, I hope you are ok. I used to read all your posts but never commented, until now not seeing you post in so long. I hope all is well.

  23. Add me to the chorus, I miss your posts, and hope all is well and you are just happily busy.

  24. Same boat. I'm not sure I've ever commented but I'm sad to not see any new posts. I hope you're just busier with better things and hope you're not unwell or anything.

  25. Same song, another verse. :-(
    Hope you're doing all right and I'd wish you'd at least give us some sort of update. I miss reading this. I canceled my Ipsy bag recently and I need someone to tell me what I'm (not) missing out on!

  26. Another person hoping you are doing well, just miss reading your well written and hysterically funny/bitchy stuff so, so much.

  27. Where'd you goooo (in the tone of the song)? Your sarcastically funny writing always amused me so hope you're doing well and will be back with a new post soon :)

  28. It is SO hard to resist these Sephora deals, amiright?!

    Also, if you don't mind I nominated you for the Liebster award, which aims to connect bloggers with each other. Please don't feel obligated to participate! Here's the link to the nomination page:

  29. Thank you very much for this post! It’s really interesting!
    Fell in love with your blog! You did a great job!

    p.s. new post - how I met Victoria Beckham

    Diana Cloudlet

  30. Same as everyone else. You're the best beauty blogger out there. I miss your smart and funny posts! I hope your life is totally faaaabulous in every way....and, selfishly, that you return to this blog at some point. :-)

    1. I hope she returns soon as well! Missing her like crazy!

  31. Miss you very much Robyn! Hope you return very soon!

  32. Where'd you go? :( Your posts were amusing, and sarcastic and informative! Hope you'll be back to blogging soon!

  33. Hope you are doing OK and return to blogging soon!

  34. I came here from a post (someone referred to your milk magnesia article) on Reddit, LOVE IT!! (read blog half the night)

    You seem to have disappeared though :( I, for one, hope you are doing fine and just needed time- I am anxious for you to get back to it, you do a wonderful job, thank you : )

  35. Come back and tell us where you went! Your posts were awesome- I check back occasionally to see if you' r returned.

  36. I'm also checking periodically! We miss you!

  37. You worked so hard building such an incredible blog! Come back! There's no one else like you!

  38. I keep checking as well-you have some fans here!

  39. We would love to see you come back. Your irreverence is much needed. :)

  40. hope you're ok, miss your fabulous posts

  41. Just checked on a whim to see if you were still blogging! You are a talented writer :)

  42. I hope you're alright! Just wanted to say that I haven't been able to find another beauty blogger with any of the humour/intelligence/honesty that your posts always have, and that we miss your awesome posts.

  43. Miss your posts! Just checking to see if you'd come back.

  44. Well, it's Black Friday 2015, a year since your last post, so I guess it's time to abandon hope of a return. Still wish you'd check in and at least let us know you're okay! Hope all is well.

  45. Thanks for the great information. i like your blog..

  46. Hope you're ok. I think I'm not alone in checking to see if you've posted or not. Come back! The world is boring.

  48. Miss you! Hope you are well. :)

  77. Merry Christmas Images or Christmas Day is an annual festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ, observed most commonly on December 25 as a religious and cultural celebration among billions of people around the world. A feast central to the Christian liturgical year, it is prepared for by the season of Advent or the Nativity Fast and initiates the season of Christmastide, which historically in the West lasts twelve days and culminates on Twelfth Night; in some traditions, Christmastide includes an Octave. Christmas Day is a public holiday in many of the world's nations, is celebrated culturally by a large number of non-Christian people, and is an integral part of the holiday season, while some Christian groups reject the celebration. In several countries, celebrating Christmas Eve on December 24 has the main focus rather than December 25, with gift-giving and sharing a traditional meal with the family.
