What's On Sale

Sephora's Black Friday beauty deals can all be had for $33 or less (if you're in Canada), or $25 or less ( if you're in the US). The lowest price point is C$13 / US$10. 

(Yes, in previous years, they used to sell everything for C$13 / US$10, but it looks like they're now including some higher-value sets, which is nice.)

The best deal of all is the Make Up For Ever Artist Palette Volume 2, which is an insane US$136 value! Followed by the Nest Eau de Parfum Travel Spray Trio, valued at C$80 / US$47.

But if I had to pick my favourites, these are what I'd personally buy:
