Here at Allure, there are few things we enjoy more than a beauty sale — and well, if you're reading this right now, chances are you're in the same boat. Welcome aboard! Lucky for us, beauty sales happen on a weekly basis. Sure huge seasonal events such as Sephora's VIB and Ulta Beauty's 21 Days of Beauty don't happen every day, but that's not to say there aren't some seriously good (and often under-the-radar) steals out there that are worth checking out.
Don't feel like doing an Internet deep dive to find them? That's where we come in: Each week we'll do the digging and keep you up to date on the best deals and discounts going down. Now, without further ado...

Tarte is taking all the scaries out of Sunday — for this week at least. Starting July 12 all of the brand's fan-favorite foundations will be up to 50 percent off. Tarte is covering all bases with everything from the 50 shade Face Tape foundation (usually $39, this weekend $20) to tinted moisturizer up for grabs. Use code FLASH at checkout for the discount to be applied. Team Tarte loyalty program members will score the full 50 perfect off, while non-members gets 40 perfect off. The sale will only run for 24 hours through Monday, so get your clicker finger warmed up.
Add to cart: For a perfect summer pick that meshes skin care with lightweight, medium coverage, try Tarte's SEA water foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15. It has a serum-like consistency that's water-based, so it won't feel heavy on your skin. The base is also infused with antioxidants like vitamin E to block out wrinkle-inducing pollution, and there's a non-chemical sunscreen built in for added protection. But because the American Academy of Dermatology recommends coverage of SPF 30 or higher, be sure to layer this over your everyday sunscreen. Shop it now for $20, down from $39.
SkinStore's latest sale event is all about discovering beauty from around the world, with nearly 4,000 different products from brands such as Jurlique, Babor, Tony Moly, and more, all on discount. All you have to do is use the code EXPLORE at checkout, and you'll receive 15 percent off your purchase of $130 or more — plus, a free deluxe sample of Verso's Hydration Serum (valued at $95).
Add to cart: A fan-favorite among beauty editors and experts alike, Pixi Beauty's Glow Tonic is a gentle exfoliating solution that sloughs away excess dead skin to reveal a brighter, smoother-looking surface — without any burning or irritation, thanks to the addition of soothing aloe. Read more about why we love the glycolic acid-spiked toner in this Allure review, and then shop it now for $24, down from $29.
Allure-favorite K-beauty brand Cosrx just dropped its latest skin-care gem: Real Fit Vitamin C Serum C23, which contains anti-inflammatory bee propolis, in addition to pure ascorbic acid, to help calm and nourish the skin. The best part? Right now, it's offering 55 percent off a four-pack (12-week regimen) of its new limited-stock launch, which means that you can get it for $55 instead of the regular price of $116.
Add to cart: Cosrx's Real Fit Vitamin C Serum C23 is a great free-radical-fighting treatment to have on hand — especially if you plan on spending more time outside in the sun. Apply a pea-sized amount in the morning before your sunscreen to prevent free-radical damage and fade dark spots, as well as fine lines and wrinkles. Shop it now for $43.
If you've ever wanted to try products from luxury brands but simply couldn't justify the price, here's some good news: Nordstrom's sale section is currently brimming with new markdowns from YSL Beauté, Laura Mercier, Giorgio Armani, Tom Ford, and more brands. You can get up to 60 percent off eye shadow palettes, lipsticks, and foundations. So, if you've been aching to give your makeup collection a little upgrade, now's the perfect time to do it.
Add to cart: Yves Saint Laurent's Rouge Pur Couture The Slim Sheer Matte Lipstick is so beautiful, it's almost hard to use. (Almost.) The featherlight formula feels like butter on the lips but then dries down to a soft-matte finish that lasts for hours. We especially love the bright shades, like coral and fuchsia, which are classic summer shades. Shop it now for $27, down from $39.
Makeup lovers, listen up: Lady Gaga's beauty brand Haus Laboratories is celebrating its one-year anniversary with an epic birthday sale that's kicking off on July 14. Shoppers will be able to score 30 percent off sitewide — meaning everything is fair game, including its best-selling Liquid Eye-Lie-ner and the Le Monster Matte Lip Crayon. It lasts six days through July 20, so be sure to set those reminders to stock up.
Add to cart: The Le Monster Matte Lip Crayon comes in 12 vibrant shades including coral, cherry red, true orange, and hot pink, as well as a few gorgeous nudes. The creamy formula dries down to a velvety-matte finish, yet never leaves lips dry and in need of balm. Shop it for $12, down from $18.
6. Ulta Beauty
Ulta Beauty's Gorgeous Hair Event may be over, but get this: The retail giant just added a new crop of shampoo and conditioners to its sale section, with brands like Pureology, Redken, Paul Mitchell, Matrix, and more, all on the table. Some of them even come with a free gift. There's no word on when these markdowns will disappear, so don't sleep on this sale. After all, is it just us, or do you tend to go through shampoo and conditioner like water? Either way, it couldn't hurt to stock up on some while you can save.
Add to cart: Redken's Color Extend Blondage Color Depositing Purple Shampoo landed an Allure 2019 Best of Beauty win because, well, it's just that good. Not only does it make blonde hair look brighter and less brassy — but it also leaves it shiny, soft, and hydrated. Shop it now for $32, down from $40.
