My adoration for Violet Grey (aka, one of my favorite retailers, which only offers the crème de la crème of beauty offerings) comes at a price. And yes, I mean that literally. Even though I’ve been leaning into more affordable skincare and makeup, I’ve had champagne taste, according to my mom, since preschool. Eek, I can’t help it! I pretty much always have a running list of splurge-worthy lipsticks, face creams, hair masks, and other glittering beauty concoctions I desperately want to slather all over my body.
But back to those high-price stakes I mentioned. Due to Violet Grey’s highly selective nature, the majority of products it offers swings heavily toward the “intense” side of the cost pendulum. Therefore, when I do splurge for something on my wish list, it’s usually in one- or two-product increments. I’m totally fine with this cycle, and it gives me something fun to look forward to—yes, even beauty editors still experience a high from product shopping—but I’d be lying if I said Violet Grey’s sparse (but exceedingly satisfying) sales didn’t make my heart flutter in happiness and anticipation.
In honor of Memorial Day, one such sale has arrived, and from May 19 (that’s today!) to May 25, you’re in for some serious savings to help chip away at your beauty wish list. Aside from a few brand exclusions (Chanel, Vintner’s Daughter, May Lindstrom, Charlotte Tilbury, and Victoria Beckham Beauty), the sale extends sitewide, and you’ll get $15 off $100, $50 off $250, $100 off $500, or $250 off purchases $1000 and above.
I’m pretty sure you already know what to do here, but in case you’re curious, I’m sharing my personal stockpile below! Keep scrolling, and may the savings be ever in your favor.
