Remember: it's a marathon, not a sprint.

Tis the season for gifting friends, family and yourself! Black Friday is not for the faint of heart. Even if you're shopping from the comfort of your cozy bed, it's important to remember that the busiest shopping day of the year is a marathon, not a sprint.

And the stakes are even higher since sales are starting before that Thanksgiving feast even hits the table; so much for catching a post-dinner snooze. 

Of course, we'll be here to feed you the best of what this year has to offer, black-owned businesses included. For makeup junkies, the fun has already started.

Ole Henriksen: From 11/22-11/28, receive a free $100 gift bag (8-9 piece set) with a $50 purchase. Use code 100GIFTBAG. 

If you're prone to scaly skin this time of year, the truth revealed super creme with spf 15 is a must! It's infused with micro algae for firmness and tripeptide-5 for fighting lines and wrinkles. Combined with the gift bag, you'll be set with a solid skincare routine until spring!

Honestly, we'd buy anything to snag a free tube of Dior Mascara because it's seriously one of the best. The brand's equally iconic J'Adore Parfum is considered the ultimate feminine fragrance and worth the pretty penny.

There's only one thing we think of when Benefit comes to mind: brows! We recommended including the defined and refined brows kit into your purchase. It includes both full and trial size products--score!
