Look Fantastic Black Friday Deals (and my Black Friday Wishlist)

one little vice beauty blog

Look Fantastic's Black Friday deals have been hotly anticipated in my household. It's already one of my favourite sites to shop for beauty online and there's been quite a bit of talk going on "behind the scenes" about the discounts they're going to be offering today. Look Fantastic very kindly sent me a Black Friday care package ahead of time, inside of which were a range of products and brands that are all going to be featured in their Black Friday deals. Today I've put together a blog post where I'm not only sharing the brands that are definitely going to be on offer online today, but I'm also talking you through all the products on my Black Friday hit list - these are the items that I've been hoping Look Fantastic will also put on offer, so that we can all snap up some bargains!

onelittlevice beauty blog: Glam Glow Treatment

Look Fantastic Black Friday Face Mask Deals...

GlamGlow YouthMud Treatment* | rrp £44.99
Black Friday offer - 3 for 2 on GlamGlow + 20% off
One of the products that Look Fantastic very kindly sent over to me was this Glam Glow Youth Mud Treatment. I've tried this face mask before and found that it was incredibly effective at declogging blocked pores and helping to minimise the appearance of blackheads. As GlamGlow is a luxury skincare brand I don't often purchase their products, they're definitely reserved as a treat! It's always really great to see these high-end brands available at a good discounted price so that you're able to try them (or repurchase them) without breaking the bank.

Other Face Masks on my Black Friday Wishlist...

Origins Drink Up Intensive Face Mask | rrp £23.00
Black Friday offer - 20% off on selected Origins products
This is another product that I'd like to buy for a Christmas gift. My dad is the biggest fan of this face mask, he goes through one every three months or so. I don't think he quite understands that it's supposed to be a weekly "treat" for your skin and instead just slathers it on quite a few times throughout the week. But it isn't doing him any harm and his skin seems to love it, so I guess I want to renew his supply this Christmas. Again, let's hope Origins is included in some of Look Fantastic's Black Friday Deals!

Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask | rrp £21.50
Black Friday offer - 20% off selected Antipodes products
Now this is a product that I want to repurchase for myself! I absolutely adore Antipodes' skincare and I've probably gone through at least three tubes of this mask in the last two years, I just can't get enough of it. I usually wait until I can get 20% off the full retail price, just to get the sense that I'm getting a good deal. But who knows, maybe it'll be even more affordable on Look Fantastic this weekend - I've got my fingers crossed!

one little vice beauty blog: real techniques makeup brushes

Look Fantastic Black Friday Makeup Brush and Applicator Deals...

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge* | rrp £5.99
Black Friday offer - 35% off Core Collection + 3 for 2 + 20% off
I can't quite express how happy I was to see that Real Techniques' products were going to be included in Look Fantastic's Black Friday deals. I'm a massive fan of the Miracle Complexion Sponge (currently it's all I use to apply my foundation and I have three on the go) so not only was I happy to have been sent one but I'm also considering stocking up on some more. Typically one of these sponges lasts me a couple of months, so long as I religiously wash and keep them clean, so unlike other makeup brushes I have to repurchase them way more often. If you're in the market for affordable makeup sponges and makeup brushes then Real Techniques are a great brand to reach for - and if Japonesque's brushes (which I talk about below) aren't discounted this Black Friday then I'll definitely be  purchasing some more Real Techniques brushes.

Other Makeup Brushes and Applicators on my Black Friday Wishlist...

Japonesque Makeup Brushes | rrp £12-£14.00
Black Friday offer - 20% off selected Japonesque products
Japonesque are a seriously underrated makeup brand and I don't see anywhere near enough bloggers talking about their products! I use one of their eyeshadow duos every single day to fill in my brows and I'm also a big fan of their concealer. However, I'd really like to try more of their makeup brushes as I've heard that they're very similar to some even more high end brushes, as they're supposedly made in the same place. I've got my eye on some of the eye makeup brushes as that's where I seem to have a really big gap in my collection.

one little vice beauty blog: La Roche Posay Effaclar K
onelittlevice beauty blog: Look Fantastic Black Friday Deals

Look Fantastic Black Friday Skincare Deals...

La Roche Posay Effaclar K* | rrp £14.90
Black Friday offer - 3 for 2 across the range + 20% off
So first thing's first, the Effaclar K is La Roche Posay's newest release and it's supposed to be an excellent choice for blemish prone / blackhead prone skin. Sadly I couldn't make it to the launch of this product so I missed out on trying it when it very first came out, so I was overjoyed to receive it from Look Fantastic. I experienced fantastic results then I used to use La Roche Posay's Effaclar Duo so I'm hoping that this new release will do my skin even more good! Also, if the entirety of La Roche Posay's range is on offer then I'll also be repurchasing their Micellar Water Cleansing Gel which is a truly fantastic makeup remover, and I'd highly recommend it!

Eve Lom's Skincare Range
Exclusive offer on Eve Lom Cleanser offering a £110 saving
Look Fantastic very kindly sent me two Eve Lom products, which left me with the assumption that the entire range would be on offer today. I've never used any of Eve Lom's skincare before but I've often spotted it on the shelves of highstreet stores like Space NK and really admired it's packaging. I don't know that much about the brand at all but I have often seen Eve Lom's cleansers making appearances on some of my favourite YouTube channels so it's definitely got its fans in the beauty blogging and vlogging community. I particularly like the look of the Morning Time Cleanser which contains both oils and papaya enzymes to cleanse and exfoliate skin, leaving it looking bright and fresh.

Other Skincare on my Black Friday Wishlist...

Konjac Sponges rrp £6.99
Black Friday offer - 20% off selected Konjac products
Okay, so this isn't exactly what you might traditionally think of as a skincare product but it's something that I absolutely adore using as part of my cleansing routine. If you've never used a Konjac sponge to cleanse your face then I urge you to take the plunge and give one a go! They're made from synthetic material so they're suitable for vegans and they have the most pleasant, soft texture. I find that they make removing my makeup ridiculously easy but they're also great for makeup free days as they very gently cleanse your skin. I typically keep mine for about six weeks so it's always nice to buy them at a discounted price as they don't really last for that long. I'll be buying a couple for myself and my friend Tom, who I've already completely converted to these.

one little vice beauty blog: tangle teezer hair brushes

Look Fantastic Black Friday Haircare Deals...

Tangle Teezer's Range of Brushes* | rrp £10.60 - £14.99
Black Friday offer - 3 for 2 across the range + 20% off
If you haven't ever tried a Tangle Teezer then Black Friday might just be the day that you should invest in one! I've been using Tangle Teezers for just over two years and I'm a really big fan. I like them because they cause less hair breakage and frizz than many of the brushes I used to use, and they're also really easy to keep clean. My personal favourite from Tangle Teezer's range are their compact travel brushes (I like this Christmas themed one) and I carry mine in my handbag every single day.

Other Haircare on my Black Friday Wishlist...

Korres Aloe and Dittany Shampoo rrp £10.00
Black Friday offer - 20% off selected Korres products
Last month I stayed over at my friend Luke's house and in his shower he had an unassuming bottle of this shampoo and I decided to give it a try. Oh my gosh, if you're after a daily gently cleansing shampoo then this is a really nice option! I haven't tried much from Korres but I can't deny that I've liked everything I've used so far, and I've been dreaming about this shampoo. I've been using the same shampoo for months now and seeing as it's coming to an end I'm definitely looking to buy something new. Plus, Look Fantastic already offer a buy one get on free deal so you can pick two bottles up for £10 - I'm just greedy and want even more of a discount...

one little vice beauty blog: Amazing Cosmetics Concealer

Look Fantastic Black Friday Makeup Deals...

Amazing Cosmetics Concealer* | rrp £19.50
Black Friday offer - 3 for 2 off across the range + 20% off
I've heard of Amazing Cosmetics but I haven't ever tried any of their products before. Sadly the concealer that I was sent isn't the right shade for my skin tone but I was really impressed by the glowing reviews that the product received on Look Fantastic. I'm not currently "in the market" for that much new makeup as I've recently down-sized by collection, but if there's one essential that I go through quickly it's concealer!

Other Makeup on my Black Friday Wishlist...

Benefit Hoola Bronzer | rrp £23.50
Black Friday offer - 20% off on selected Benefit products
I don't actually want to buy one of Benefit's iconic bronzing powders for myself, I want to buy one for my best friend for Christmas. She bought one of these in May and has used it daily ever since and it's just perfect for her olive-toned skin. It adds just the right amount of colour and leaves her looking healthy and glowing. She's been dropping major hints that she'd like another one for Christmas, so I'll be checking to see if Look Fantastic will be doing an offer that covers this bronzer.

Nars Eyeshadow Primer | rrp £19.50
Black Friday offer - 20% off on selected Nars products
I started using a "proper" eyeshadow primer at the beginning of this year and it totally transformed the way that my eyeshadow looked and lasted on my hooded, oily eyelids. Sadly, I lost my Urban Decay Primer Potion at some point this summer and I haven't had the heart to go out and replace it yet. Instead, I thought I'd give the Nars Eyeshadow Primer a try as I've seen it in countless makeup tutorials on YouTube. Look Fantastic don't usually offer any discounts on Nars makeup so I'm hoping that Black Friday might be an exception.

You can check out all of Look Fantastic's Black Friday offers online here, and use the promo code "LFBLACK" at the checkout to get 20% off this weekend. Leave me a comment and let me know which products are on your Black Friday wish list.

*This post contains products that were sent to me by Look Fantastic, but I didn't receive any other compensation.


  1. Great deals!
    Love this post!
    Thank you for sharing.
    Wish you a fab weekend!

  2. I've been curious about the Eve Lom products because I've read so many different reviews about them; some love them, some say they're too pricey and not good at all. Konjac Sponges are definitely on my wishlist as well, I haven't tried them yet and they seem like a great product!
