5 Places I’ll DEFINITELY Be Shopping on Black Friday

Written by: Susan Hang

I haven’t had much time to share my latest beauty discoveries, but believe me, there have been so MANY wonderful things to try!

I have been shopping on Black Friday for years now – since 2007 to be exact! I just believe in saving money when and where you can, so why not take take advantage of the sales and discounts? You might disagree and wonder if the the savings are really that big, but take 20-30% off here and there – and what do you get? SAVINGS. Don’t forget that I also come from the other side (retail merchandising), and I know these companies plan ALL YEAR for this event… The fact that they buy in bulk means they can provide you an amazing deal, so YES, you really do save! But first, don’t forget to give thanks – and then take the time give back by shopping for holiday gifts!

Best Places for Shopping on Black Friday | Zanita.comI always always always shop for beauty products on Black Friday because it’s extremely rare that a luxury beauty brand like Giorgio Armani or Bobbi Brown will offer discounts on their ENTIRE line. I also make sure to stock up on my essentials like Antastasia’s Brow Wiz or Dr. Hauschka’s Quince Day Cream. So anyway, here are 5 places I’ll be shopping on Black Friday! Note that Most of my predictions are based off of last year’s promotions because if a brand did something last year, they’re likely to do it again this year…


Last year, Glossier offered 20% off plus free shipping on Black Friday, so I anticipate the same again. I also encourage EVERYONE to take advantage of this sale. I shared my top picks here but there have been so many new launches since. I’d urge you to try out the new perfume, stock up on the boy brow and priming moisturizer rich – all are wonderful and you won’t have an ounce of regret.


Dermstore has done 30% off again and again the last three years and I always buy something from here. They have a wonderful selection of Peter Thomas Roth with tons of gift sets, and I’m eyeing a few brands like RMS and Kevyn Aucoin. I just love Dermstore and their humongous offerings.


Last year, Birchbox really pissed me off because they didn’t do anything novel, but they’ve totally made a comeback this year! I cannot wait to get my hands on some Dr. Jart+ goodies and totally thankful for Birchbox coming through! (Bravo guys!) Their promo has already started, so head there now to see what it’s all about!


Shopbop is having a really cool sale right now that will run through Sunday. The more you buy, the more you save. If there’s a pair of shoes or handbag you’ve been watching all season, now is the time to cave – and save some dollars while you’re at it! I’m diggin’ these white boots and this backpack.


Does Nordstrom ever do wrong? I don’t think so. I’m loving their sale selects right now – and admit that I rely on Nordstrom for all my Topshop goodies, plus they’ve got some cool beauty deals going on. I’m def picking up a coat or two…

So, as you can see, I keep it short, fast, and sweet! I hate crowds, I avoid the lines, and I still save 🙂

Cheers to shopping and hope you all have a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving.
