These Are The Beauty Sales You Can Feel Good About

It's easy to become a bit greedy around this time of year, what with all the Black Friday shopping and massive holiday sales flooding our Facebook feeds. In fact, maybe you're finding yourself more excited about that rad Cyber Monday deal than the idea of spending Thanksgiving with your closest friends and family.

That's where Giving Tuesday comes in: The day, which falls on November 28 this year, is a gentle reminder that there is so much more to think about this time of year. What began as a way for businesses and consumers to donate time and money to great causes during the holidays has turned into a sweeping social media movement — and this year, many of your favorite beauty brands are donating up to 100% of its profits next week.

From cult makeup brands like Kat Von D and big retailers like Free People, there's good reason to wait until Tuesday to check a few items off your shopping list. Click through for a few of the ways you can participate. As they say: Give a little, get a lot.

Kat Von D Beauty

A few months ago, Kat Von D released this collection of four liquid lipsticks, with 20% of each sale benefitting Farm Sanctuary. This Tuesday, you can purchase a lipstick and get a free tote bag in return for your donation. Just enter the code “GIVINGTUES” at checkout.

Kat Von D Beauty Farm Sanctuary Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Hilda, $20, available at Kat Von D.
Charlotte Tilbury

Make any purchase online and Charlotte Tilbury will donate 15% of its profits to Women For Women, an organization that provides resources and support for women living in poverty. There's no better time to buy a makeup palette for your beauty-obsessed best friend.

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow in Light to Medium, $68, available at Charlotte Tilbury.
Purlisse

This skin-care set of eight products is an amazing deal on its own. But on Giving Tuesday, 100% (!) of the profits from the kit will be donated to Look Good Feel Better, an organization helping women in cancer treatment feel empowered. Yeah, you read that right: 100%.

Purlisse Skin Survival Kit, $76, available at Purlisse.
Free People

The retailer will be donating 25% of all profits from online and in-store sales to Girls Inc., a non-profit that provides mentoring and programming for young girls. With a selection of dozens of beauty brands, there's a lot to choose from. Our pick: this highlighter duo from Kosas. It's small and compact, which makes it perfect for any holiday traveling.

Kosas Color & Light Pressed, $34, available at Free People.
Derma E

One dollar from every purchase on Tuesday goes to a non-profit of your choice (pick between Vitamin Angels or Keep America Beautiful). Plus, spend $25 and get a goodie bag with samples and a free full-sized foot cream. Consider it one more reason to buy this gentle yet effective Microdermabrasion Scrub.

Derma E Microdermabrasion Scrub, $32.50, available at Derma E.
Morrocanoil

It might be cold and dry out, but this hair mask will make sure your hair never shows any suffering. On Tuesday, 10% of all sales site-wide will go to Inspired By Women, a short-film series meant to empower women.

Morrocanoil Intense Hydrating Mask, $64, avaiable at Morrocanoil.
Lush

This cult-favorite hand and body lotion donates 100% of its sales to supporting human rights, animal protection, and environment conservation efforts. Lush works with dozens of charities — from Project Chimps (an advocacy group working to end the use of chimpanzees in invasive biomedical research) to IndigenEYEZ (and organization dedicated to empowering Indigenous youth). The best part: It's not exclusive to Tuesday. Lush donates 100% of the sales, 100% of the time.

Lush Charity Pot, $7.95, available at Lush.
