Whether you want to believe it or not, the year is almost over. Somehow, the holiday season of 2017 crept up on all of us (along with this insanely cold weather that no one was prepared for after having extended summer heat), and with it comes the most dangerous day of the year for your wallet: Black Friday.

Although I am a full believer in staying home and celebrating the holidays with your family instead of going out into the wilderness of society and risking your life for a brand new toaster, I understand that some things just must be done. And so, I’ve found five deals I think are worth going Black Friday shopping for – beauty-related, of course.

Go to Ulta for:

-NYX Cosmetics Box of Goodies Advent Calendar ($25): This set allows you access to 12 different beauty products for only $25. Talk about a countdown to Christmas.

-Urban Decay Primer Potion ($8!): For a product that is not only essential but that also normally retails for $24, a 66 percent-off discount is not bad at all.

-Philosophy Christmas Shower Gels ($12 each): These scents are undoubtedly the best ones Philosophy releases. Be sure to stock up if you want to smell like Christmas year-round.

Go to Sephora for:

-Fenty Beauty Liquid Lipstick Launch in “Stunna”- Leave it to Rihanna to launch a product specifically for Black Friday. The new lip color is a bright red that claims to be universal for everyone, and with the way her other products have turned out, it’s safe to say that this lipstick will be just as good as its PR coverage.

Go to Target for:

-Soap & Glory sale: This brand is having a BOGO 50 percent off sale. To keep it short: your skin will thank you.

Stay home for:

If you have particular makeup brands that are sold exclusively online, or that you love more over others, make sure to sign up for their email list now. This year, most beauty brands are doing a last-minute “drop” approach to their holiday deals to spark more interest and buyer motivation. Many brands are only releasing the smallest bits of information about their Black Friday deals early, saving the biggest news to be released on Thanksgiving. Keep an eye out for more beauty news via the interwebs, and if all else fails and you discover something a little late, play it safe and shop online.

No matter which way you go, you’re sure to find some special deals just for Black Friday, so save that paycheck and avoid eating too much, because the only thing that might stop you from taking advantage is that post-Thanksgiving food coma.
