The worst is seeing amazing savings on your favourites/most-wanteds on Sephora then finding out they're not the same or even available in Canada. So I'ma help you with a list of what to line up for on November 27th. (More Black-Friday beauty deals and links here – and a giveaway!) And by line up, I mean be at your computer screen at the crack of 12:01 am because this stuff flies.
First things first: download the Sephora app, which will tell you everything you want to know, and in Canadian. (It auto-slots you into the Canada side of thing, and if you choose to go the US part to see what they've got, it'll remove anything that doesn't ship to Canada. That's for our own good, sure, but more for Sephora's peace of mind so they don't get angry emails and tweets from Canadian customers.
Next thing: all the Black Friday deals will be $13 Canadian. That price should at least tickle your wallet a little so it'll barely feel the pinch, right? (Hah!) And most are mini or deluxe-size items, sometimes paired with a full-size.
Last thing: the following is an entire list of what's available to Canada and the US plus Canada exclusives. The links connect to the What's New? landing page for each brand; products will go up on the site when the Sephora Black Friday sale goes live.

The US does indeed have several more Black-Friday offerings that Canada does not; rather than swipe them from G at nouveaucheap.com, I'll send you over to her to see what they are (brand hints: Butter London, Clarisonic, Ciaté, Jack Black, Nails Inc., and more from Sephora Collection). And it turns out, as I review the lineup, Canada has just the Philosophy Purity special size as its exclusive. *insert emoticon here*
I confess I don't especially enjoy posts like this – I can hear my VISA crying as I ooh and ahh over all the stuffs (Tarte! Boscia! Sephora Collection! Ole Henriksen! Origins! Oh my gah!). Are you going to be good with these Sephora Black Friday deals? Or really, really naughty?
