Cheap Huda Beauty eyeshadow palette

Makeup sale roundup: This week’s new deals on Huda Beauty, NARS, No7 and more

31st July 2020 | Author: Victoria Woollaston-Webber

Whether it’s big-name brands offering designer makeup for cheap or the makeup outlet pages of beauty sites, it’s not difficult to find a cheap makeup sale online.

The problem is that many of these makeup sales are, to put it bluntly, full of dross. That’s not to say all makeup sales online are terrible, but it can be time-consuming trying to find the real beauty bargains. Especially without signing up to multiple newsletters. That’s where we come in!

MAC Cosmetics sale

There used to be an amazing page on the MAC Cosmetics website called MAC Goodbyes where you could get up to 40% off end-of-line products. This appears to have been sidelined/abandoned recently but in its place is a new, better sale page called MAC Treats.

MAC Treats aren’t just reserved to end-of-line, discontinued products. Plus the savings are up to 50% off. Here is our pick of the best MAC makeup deals this week, and we’ll be updating our cheap MAC cosmetics guide on a weekly basis, for as long as the MAC sale lasts.

♥ MAC Cosmetics Versicolour Varnish Cream Lip Stain

Was £19, now £11.40 | Buy now from MAC

MAC lip gloss saleMAC

A cross between a lipstick, lip gloss and tint, MAC’s Versicolour lip stains may be small but they’re incredibly mighty.

They have a watery-light formula that glides on like a cream, offering hydration and pigment, and the colour will last for 12 hours.

The range offers 14 shades – in a mix of berries, reds, pinks and nudes – so there should be something for everyone, and the one pictured is called Like Candy.

♥ MAC Cosmetics Brushstroke liquid eyeliner

Was £17.50, now £8.75 | Buy now from MAC

Mac brushstroke eyelinerMAC

This Brushstroke liquid Liner comes with a precision brush tip that makes nailing your feline flick sharp, fast and easy. It has a mistake-proof, tapered-tip pen that helps you create different thickness of lines, plus its formula also stays put for hours, which also makes it great for tightlining.

♥ MAC Cosmetics 48 Lash

Was £12.50, now £8.75 | Buy now from MAC

There is a number of MAC Cosmetics’ false eyelashes available from the MAC Treats page including these, the 48 Lash. We like these lashes because they’re not too thick and bulky, which is ideal if you have smaller or hooded eyes, and they have a great shape on the outer corners of the lashes, giving your look added dimension and drama.
