While we still love browsing store shelves in real life, there’s something to be said for the appeal of online shopping for beauty gifts, especially on Cyber Monday. You get to continue basking in that post-gluttony glow of Thanksgiving — and the shopper’s high of Black Friday — without the frenzy of pushing through throngs of people to examine palettes, jars of creams, or hot tools. And, this year, there’s a lot to see: your favorite beauty brands are offering up to 50 percent off on everything from kitschy snowman-shaped palettes to powerful skincare treatments. Keep reading to start creating your action plan with this preview of what’s to come on December 2. (After all, it’s not uncommon for sale items to sell out quickly!)
