Get excited because we’re so close to saying goodbye to 2021. Although the year has definitely brought hardships and pain points a-plenty, due to the ongoing pandemic, one small indulgence we haven’t stopped partaking in is treating ourselves to some new beauty products — especially when they’re on sale. As you may know, Black Friday and Cyber Monday were epic, but the deals don’t dry up simply because the holidays are over.
Some of the best discounts on your favorite beauty products come after Christmas. Here, we listed out the best brands — like Dermstore, Colourpop, Overtone, and more — that will be discounting some of their most popular products after you take your tree and decorations down. We have options in every category (skin, makeup, and hair) and made it so easy for you to shop to your heart’s content with this handy, organized list. Take a scroll through, and whether you are shopping for yourself or a belated gift for a loved one, we’ve got you (and your wallet) covered.

No codes are needed.

Through January 31: For the rest of 2021 and the first month of January, take advantage of MAC‘s covetable holiday kits discounted by 25 percent. Consider it a belated Christmas gift to yourself…or any birthday gift extremely fitting for your dynamic Capricorn friends.
Through December 31, or while supplies last: Start 2022 off on the right foot — or lip — with a bold red courtesy of Giorgio Armani‘s Best of Beauty-winning Lip Maestro. Or opt for a virtual makeup-inspired vacation thanks to Too Faced‘s trio of Christmas in Rio de Janeiro, Christmas in Sydney, and Christmas in New York palettes. Each is packed with eight eye shadows, as well as a highlighter and blush, all deliciously-scented — our mouths are watering at the thought of papaya, fairy bread, and cheesecake.
December 23 to 31: Round out 2021 with some colorful, rainbow-spanning gel liners or festive, champagne-inspired shadows, glosses, and stickers from Colourpop. The best part? Everything is 25 percent off sitewide, which means you can treat yourself and feel good about it.
