Finding popular beauty favorites at an affordable price can seem unrealistic outside of the holiday season, but Macy's 10 Days of Glam event is making it possible to snag some discounts in the middle of summer. The event, which kicked off Monday, is a full 10 days worth of day-specific deals and free shipping on top-rated beauty products.
As part of Monday's deals, you can save 50% off on products from brands such as BareMinerals and Smashbox. We were particularly impressed by the savings on the BareMinerals BareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer, which now costs just $12 and ships for free using the code GLAM10 at checkout.
The lightweight formula acts as both a concealer and hydrating eye serum in one. All six shades are non-comedogenic, which means they won't clog pores or cause breakouts — a bonus for those who may be struggling with "maskne" right now.
Denika Bedrossian, a celebrity makeup artist whose clients include Miley Cyrus and Sarah Hyland, told Shop TODAY that the concealer has been a go-to in both her professional kit and personal makeup bag for years.
"The BareSkin concealer not only has incredible coverage, but also has built-in anti-aging serums, so it keeps your eyes bright and nourished," Bedrossian said.
According to the brand, the formula includes antioxidants such as lilac plant stem cells to brighten troubled areas such as dark circles or scars. The mineral-coated pigments in the formula also further the brightening effect, while the humectants hydrate the skin without compromising coverage.
"The BareSkin concealer definitely feels lighter than many concealers I've worked with," celebrity makeup artist Neil Scibelli said. "However, I do find it to be gorgeous and silky smooth on the skin."
Though Scibelli notes the coverage can be on the lighter side of the spectrum, it is buildable and can be applied using a patting motion under the eyes until the desired amount of coverage is achieved.
Celebrity makeup artist Jeannia Robinette also told Shop TODAY that the concealer boasts yellow undertones, which makes it easier to blend into the skin. The inclusion of natural ingredients in BareMinerals products is another draw for her.
"It's really good for your skin, so you don't mind putting it on," Robinette said. "It's really nice to have something that is natural-looking."
If you're looking for coverage with a makeup artist's seal of approval, the BareMinerals BareSkin concealer could be worth snagging on sale before the end of the day. If you miss Monday's deal, don't worry — Macy's 10 Days of Glam sale event lasts through July 29, and we've picked out the standout sales from each day.
