If you like designer beauty goods but not the hefty price tags that typically accompany them, you’re in luck. Amazon has a special "buy one, get one 30 percent off" beauty event going on right now. (That's 30 percent off of the Amazon prices, some of which were marked down to begin with.)
To score the deal, all you have to do is choose any two products from the luxury beauty sale event. Once both have been added to your cart, you should see that 30 percent has been taken off of the more expensive item. (Amazon is also offering free shipping on purchases over $25).
We scoped out the scene and it looks like the selection of products on sale includes high-end skin care, fragrance and cosmetic staples, along with a few professional hair tools and accessories thrown in here and there.
Read on for some of our top product picks, all available as part of the luxury beauty sale at Amazon, for a limited time only.
