Here at Allure, we follow the early lives of new beauty brands as closely as we follow our favorite celebs’ careers — like supportive stage moms watching from afar, cheering from the sidelines. As beauty editors, there’s nothing more rewarding than watching an exciting and innovative beauty brand make a big splash on the scene and then continue to consistently release stellar products that live on our vanities, on our desks, and at the tops of our tote bags for anytime access.
Merit Beauty’s first six glowy, luxurious products dropped in early 2021, and since then the brand has added four products to its lineup. Merit’s repertoire includes not one, but three Best of Beauty Award winners, which is the Allure seal of approval for a brand if we’ve ever seen it.
It’s pretty clear that we love Merit around here and lucky for us, they showed Allure readers a little bit of extra love this Black Friday 2022. For 24 hours on November 22, Allure readers used the code EARLYACCESS22 at checkout for 20 percent off their purchases. But don’t sweat it if you missed the early window. Merit’s 20 percent off event lasts through November 28, so you still have a chance to take advantage of the savings — no code needed.
Knock some holiday shopping off of your list early this year and add some discounted Merit goodies to your cart while the sale is still live. We’ll be restocking on radiant complexion essentials, lengthening mascara, juicy lip oils, and more. We’ve rounded up a couple of our Merit faves — Best of Beauty winners and some newness — to help you get started. Happy shopping!
This sale extravaganza includes two curated sets. Score $30 off the classic, time-saving Five Minute Morning Set, a collection of Merit’s core products that you can use to achieve a full, fresh face. It comes with the Minimalist complexion stick, the Brush No. 1, highlighter and blush balms, a mascara, the Brow 1980 Volumizing Pomade, and a Shade Slick Lip Oil, all in your shades of choice.
