Happy Thanksgiving! The sales of Black Friday and Cyber Monday are already here in most cases (every year, it seems to begin a little earlier, no?) and I’ve been diligently working to round up the best deals from retailers that I love.
Consequently, I’m excited to share a beauty and style shopping guide that aims to make your online pursuits as smooth and productive as possible.
Now is the time to support your favorite businesses and brands, shop for your holiday gifts early and enjoy some abundant savings in the process.
A Black Friday and Cyber Monday Shopping Guide, Beauty Professor Style.
Style Notes for the look above include:
- AGOLDE 90s Jeans: I purchased these jeans earlier this month and have worn them nonstop since then. They run slightly large (I’m wearing a 26 and they’re roomy in the best way) and look good with everything.
- Off the Shoulder Bodysuit: Sleek and timeless, this bodysuit rests in the perfect place off the shoulders, adding a bit of drama to an otherwise standard classic.
- White booties (reviewed HERE): These booties instantly transform an outfit while feeling abundantly comfortable. Get them while you can!

Evidently, Black Friday and Cyber Monday started earlier this week (or month, for that matter) so there are many sales already in full swing…here are some of my carefully edited recommendations:
Use code AGENTRACHEL for 25% off site wide. I use this clean and opulent brand every single day and will be replenishing my own supply during this sale! I suggest the hyaluronic acid-rich Holi Water (the bounciest, most transformational toner), Holi Stick No 5 Deodorant (aluminum-free and all I have used for a year and a half…I will never go back to traditional deodorant), Holi C (an ultra potent vitamin c powder that delivers fast brightening and smoothing results), the Holi Oil Ageless Face Serum (I just finished my bottle…this serum masterfully takes care of business for the best skin of life), Holi Glow Ageless Eye Serum (de-puffs and hydrates while adding a stunning glow), the new Holi Bright Resurface Glass Face Mask (utterly transformational with every application) and the Agent Nateur Holi Mane which has pearl powder and the most premium variety of collagen for hair, skin and nails with next-level strength and health. I don’t go a day without it (and either does my mom).
Major discounts on Black Friday (sign up for notifications HERE) and 25% off on Cyber Monday with code CYBER25…I suggest the brilliant Power Fabric Foundation Balm (reviewed countless times on BP), Power Lip 103 (the perfect peachy pink…reviewed HERE) and the classic Luminous Silk Foundation, which never disappoints.
Save 25% off all orders with code BFCM25, 30% off orders of $100+ with code SHOPBF3. I recommend the genius Zero Gravity Foundation Stick (my match is Mallorca) and my Beauty Professor x Au Naturale LA Lip Stain (reviewed HERE) which I wear–in some capacity–on a daily basis. The entire brand is ultra clean and sustainable and ranks amongst my favorite!
30% off an insane array of beauty sets including the breathtaking Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Dazzling Diamonds Set, which includes a peachy pink blush, an absolutely radiant shadow quad for a delicious holiday eye, the iconic Pillow Talk lipstick and Charlotte’s latest mascara formula.
While on the subject of palettes and sets, I ardently recommend the Lawless The Mini Glam One Palette, which features a gorgeous spectrum of creamy neutrals and two ultra radiant metallics for the perfect chic party eye and the Lawless Forget the Filler Mini Lip Trio, which boasts three shades of most plumping gloss (reviewed HERE) in town. Finally, the Kevyn Aucoin Lights Up Sculpt is the cutest, most utilitarian stocking stuffer (currently on sale plus try 10RACHEL for even more savings on Skinstore). The tiny palette has both the iconic sculpting powder and a radiant blush/highlighter combination for a refined canvas in mere seconds.
A wide selection of skincare and beauty favorites are currently 30% off and the resplendent Clé de Peau Beauté Garden of Splendor Holiday 2021 Collection is in still in stock but selling quickly. Housed in intricately magnificent packaging designed by French artist Michael Cailloux, the nature-inspired limited edition range includes the new *Shine Lipstick (shown below in 519 Rose in the Pink), two luminous and buildable Blush Creme shades–*Warmth’s Magic and *Joyful in Pink–for subtle and sophisticated cheeks and a *Mini Lip Set with five hues including Camellia, A Flair for Fuchsia (worn in the images throughout this post), Beguiling Brick, Legend of Rouge and Relentless Rose.
Additionally, there is a cool pastel *Luminzing Face Enhancer in 103 Wonder-full Radiance and two eye shadow duos…the peacock blue and peach *Eye Color Duo 109 Sunrise in the Garden and violet purple and peach pink *Eye Color Duo 110 Sunset in the Garden.
Earn a $40 promo card with every $200 spent (now through 11/29) The luxury beauty site’s curated gift guide is one of the easiest to navigate and samples come with every order. I’ll be picking up gifts for friends and family including the *La Prairie Skin Caviar Night Oil (reviewed HERE), Hair Rituel by Sisley La Creme 230 (reviewed HERE), Hair Rituel by Sisley Volumizing Shampoo, Augustinus Bader Leave-In Treatment (reviewed HERE), Augustinus Bader Face Oil (reviewed HERE) and the ridiculously stunning Pafums de Marly Oriana (reviewed HERE). I also need to put the *107 Chaga Jelly Low pH Cleanser on your radar; it isn’t available at CosBar but is in the image below…the texture and cleansing power are peerless.
Get a free lipstick with the purchase of three at regular price. Always on my lips, I can’t help but personally recommend my Beauty Professor collection…it’s a wearable neutral trio that looks good on everyone!
BOGO on all lip products 11/26-11/29 with code LIPPIE50. This makes the iconic lip plumper shades (love the matte Blush Rose and shiny Tinsel Town and original Clear versions) an absolute steal!
40% off your entire purchase with code THANKS40. I’ll be picking up this chic Archive blouse, black blouse (love the ruffled collar) and V-Neck Sweater, lush striped blouse and Robinne sweater because animal print is a neutral.
35% off sitewide with code BF35. I love supporting independent beauty lines and this brand, made locally in LA, has been a favorite for years. I suggest the Jello Gloss Balm, Glossy Lip Liner and Luminous Face Powder (reviewed HERE), which gives the canvas perfecting coverage and a luminous glow.
Shop more save more with 30% off orders of %75+, 25% off orders of $50+ and 20% off orders of $20+. Constantly in my rotation, I urge you to try the Tinted Face Oil, Wet Lip Oil in Jellyfish (a fabulous nightly treatment) and Dip (the perfect rosy nude) and 10-Second Eyeshadow in Globe, Element and 333. Plus, the gift sets like the 10-Second Must Haves Mix are adorable and extremely versatile.
From 11/26-11/30, enjoy 20% off site wide, no code necessary! These makeup bags are opulent, roomy and extremely versatile…trying one will ruin you for all others.
Le Metier de Beaute: Yes…the brand is back and I am happy to share the code BP30 for 30% off site wide. I recommend the invaluable-to-my-routine Peau Vierge, which is an elegant moisturizer, illuminator, light tint and skincare treatment in one. I use it every single day and wholly recommend it.
25% off everything…I have my eye on this pearl and gold necklace, which will layer beautifully with my existing neck stack.
Cyber deals up to 50% off…check out this insane steal these Spanx faux leather leggings (I own a couple pairs…so good), this camel cashmere sweater (also comes in a ton of other colors) and these wildly cozy UGG slingbacks for which I think my feet will thank me.
I recommend the gorgeous Oribe x Antoinette Poisson Gold Lust Collection, which is equal parts stunning art and radiant hair.
Take 25% off everything, no restrictions. I love this cozy sherpa jacket, black Miramar joggers (I already own them in 2 shades of blue) and this broken in denim shirt (seriously, this type of button down is staple of my wardrobe).
25% off everything…my closet continues to become a Reformation shrine because the pieces are timeless and ever so wearable for everyday. I suggest this cropped cashmere sweater, the inimitable Gaia bodysuit (I own 3 and wear them multiple times a week…nothing better) and the Rou dress, which comes in an array of colors and wears like a dream. Toss a blazer over it and pair with slouchy booties and you’re winter ready
Thousands of items on sale…use code HOLIDAY to save up to 50% off. I like the look of this cut out top, simple gold chain necklace and these Hepburn high rise jeans. Oh, and this party pajama set is screaming my name!
Some other luxurious beauty and skincare gifts as pictured above include the lush, exquisitely packaged *Biography Golden Ray Oil (made in small batches for hydrated skin with immense luminosity), *Molton Brown Jubilant Pine & Patchouli Shower Gel and Body Lotion (25% off sitewide 11/26-11/29), the soft cotton *American Made Makeup Off Towels (crafted in black to reduce staining), the Laura Mercier Stroke of Midnight Holiday Brush Collection (perfectly sized brushes to create a full face), the rich and cushiony *Omorovicza Queen Cream (20% off with CYBER20) and the divine *Veronique Gabai Eau de la Nuit EDP and La Creme.
20% off, sitewide and gift with purchases of $100 or more. Explore the holiday sets…they’re marvelous for gifting self and others with equal aplomb.
I discovered this new online retailer by accident and am loving its curated edit and free one-day shipping (INCREDIBLE). Right now, enjoy a BOGO sale on clearance items…I have my eye on this CK bodysuit (under $20!), wide leg trousers (very 1940s), these Bordeaux booties and this classic double breasted coat by Nanushka.
20% off the best in beauty. I heartily suggest the Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream (but of course) and Surratt Prismatique Eyes in Neutral Eyes and I also want to pick up the Rouje Paris Lip Palette as I’ve had my eye on it for awhile!
With super strong discounts (up to 70% off) all week, this brand makes the best bikinis (I have 5!) and loungewear…pick it up now, wear it all year.
30% off site wide with code BP30…this is the biggest ZIIP sale of the entire year and I wholly recommend this device, which uses both nano and micro current to sculpt the face while improving the look of one’s skin with every treatment session (reviewed HERE).
While on the subject of devices and wellness in general, I would be remiss to not include the Droplette (comprehensively reviewed HERE…use BEAUTYCW40 for 40% off all devices) and the radio frequency wonder for sculpting, the TriPollar Stop Vx, which is currently 25% off. Additionally, Pique Tea (an antioxidant-rich daily indulgence) is 20% off site wide with code BFCM20 and I love the Peach Ginger Black Tea and Daily Radiance Immune Support, which is more important than ever before. I take it everyday and even purchased a surplus for my parents!
