Sales That Prove Amazon Prime Day Isn't The Only Place To Snag Big Beauty Deals This Week

We may receive a commission on purchases made from links.

Today's the day that countless Amazon Prime members have been waiting for: Amazon Prime Day. This online shopping event lasts from July 12 to July 13, but lots of people have already been checking out the Early Prime Day 2022 beauty deals in advance.


According to Business Insider, Prime Day consists of a plethora of noteworthy deals on a wide variety of products, so Amazon Prime members will likely purchase lots of new items for low prices by the end of the day tomorrow. However, you shouldn't feel left out if you aren't an Amazon Prime member because many other companies are aware of this shopping event and trying to compete with impressive sales of their own. Thus, now is an excellent time for beauty enthusiasts without Amazon Prime memberships to hunt for all the hottest deals on websites that aren't Amazon. Fortunately, we already scouted out some exciting sales in the beauty world that you won't want to miss.

Target's Deal Days

Why bother paying a monthly fee for an Amazon Prime membership when you can get a similar experience with Target's Deal Days? During this popular retailer's Deal Days, shoppers can enjoy a 25% price decrease on beauty-related items (via Allure).


Target notes that this special event lasts for three days, ending on July 13, and the retailer seemed to throw a little bit of shade at Amazon, saying, "Three days of show-stopping savings with no membership fees." Whether or not the "no membership fees" part was a subtle dig at Amazon for keeping Prime Day exclusive to members only, we're happy to see the competition if it means better deals for us.

While Target offers countless affordable, high-rated makeup items, one product in particular caught our eye. E.l.f.'s Clear Brow & Lash Mascara Crystal is super versatile, as you can use it to enhance your brows and eyelashes; plus, it has an impressive overall rating of 4.2 stars. But what really blew us away was the price. Initially selling for only $3, this brow and eyelash-enhancing product was already super inexpensive, but we did the math, and with the 25% discount, the price comes out to only $2.25.


Moreover, everyone who wears makeup needs makeup wipes, and no one can go wrong with the Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes & Face Wipes. With the 25% discount, you can purchase this convenient product for just over $4.

Macy's Black Friday in July

According to CNN, Macy's is another excellent place to score some remarkable deals on beauty products this week, thanks to their Black Friday Flash Deals. For instance, if you look at the Black Friday in July items in the Beauty Department, you'll see more than 2,500 discounted items, and we understand that this may seem a little overwhelming. Still, a few products particularly stood out to us. One of those standout products is the Mac Matte Lipstick, which comes in a variety of hues. This product stands out to us in that it has a glowing overall rating of 4.7 stars with more than 4,900 reviews and counting. The lipstick was originally selling for $21, but the discount makes it $16.80.


For anyone more interested in the hair side of beauty, the hair-related Macy's Black Friday in July standout deal has to be the Sutra Beauty 7-Pc. Blowout & Styling Set, Created for Macy's. This set seems like a steal because it comes with a blowout brush, flat iron, mini heat brush, shampoo, conditioner, leave-in conditioner, and hair serum with a dramatic price drop from $350 to only $75. We can't believe how much you'll get for such an affordable price! Plus, this set has four out of five stars.

Free Shipping and Last Chance Sale at NYX Cosmetics

One of our most annoying online shopping pet peeves is when we add what seems like an affordable item to our cart only to get ripped off with a ridiculous shipping fee. Thankfully, NYX Cosmetics is providing a special offer where you can create an account to reap the reward of free shipping with the FREESHIP code. As if they didn't already have us at free shipping, NYX Cosmetics additionally has the Last Chance Sale where you can get specific items for half price.


If you're looking for a beloved NYX Cosmetics product from the Last Chance Sale, you should consider buying the Lip Lingerie Nude Matte Lipstick. Not only is this product one of the brand's best sellers, but it's also vegan and is on sale for less than $5. With an overall rating of 4.2 out of five stars and over 1,500 reviews, you can't go wrong with this item.

Moreover, anyone on the hunt for a foundation should look into the Born to Glow! Naturally Radiant Foundation. Also on sale, this $10 vegan foundation provides a glowy effect and has 4.3 stars with more than 800 reviews. Plus, it's appropriate for people of all ages. One pleased reviewer wrote, "This product made my over 50-year old skin glow!"


ColourPop's Best of Disney sale

Every Disney-loving beauty enthusiast is in luck right now, as ColourPop is having its best of Disney sale (via ColourPop). Even if you're not a huge Disney fan, these whimsical products are worth giving a chance!


Anyone looking for a plethora of shiny eyeshadow options should check out the Heart of Gold Super Shock Shadow Vault. This super sparkly eyeshadow vault is cruelty-free and vegan, and although it has an $84 value, it's on sale for only $37. Regarding reviews, it has a near-perfect overall rating of 4.9 out of five stars with more than 110 reviews. It's also crucial to note that you shouldn't write off this affordable product for its Disney theme if you aren't looking for something wholesome, because you can just as easily use these bold shadows to create a more "Euphoria"-inspired vibe.

If you're looking for a simpler single item, you should check out the Darling Super Shock Blush. With an unbeatable price tag of only $4, this shimmery blush comes in an endless variety of colors to choose from, so there's a hue for everyone. It even has a perfect rating of five stars! One happy customer gave a glowing review of this product, writing, "Gorgeous slightly warm, rosy flush, just like a ripe summer peach!"


Orly's Last Chance Sale

You didn't think we forgot about nail polish, did you? Orly is having a Last Chance Sale on specific polishes, and there are 15%, 25%, and even 30% discounts. One item from the 15% off section is the Jungle Boogie nail polish. Providing a neutral yet shimmery finish, this vegan and cruelty-free nail polish is on sale for only $8.93.


If you're on the hunt for an edgier product with a 25% discount, you should check out the Below Zero – Gel Nail Color, on sale for $13.93. Correctly applying this sleek gel polish can give you professional-looking results without actually stepping foot in a nail salon.

Finally, we saved one of the best deals for last: the Marvelous Mini Kit. On sale for $14, this kit comes with four beautiful, versatile nail polishes.

All of these sales are proof that you don't need an Amazon Prime membership to enjoy some excellent beauty deals this week. We can't wait to start shopping before these sales end!
