Ah, Labor Day. Beloved for its dedication and meaning (it honors the American Labor Movement, after all) yet also begrudged for its unofficial symbolization of impending doom—the end of summer. (Please, let us have just two seconds to be dramatic.)
Typically associated with family picnics, mouthwatering barbecues, and a gloriously extended weekend, Labor Day also happens to be a bargain hunter's paradise, especially if you have a thing for beauty. From Ulta to Dermstore, some of our favorite brands and retailers are joining in on the holiday spirit (sans sailboats and hot dogs) by giving the gift that truly keeps on giving: beauty products—and lots of them.
With so many epic deals, we thought it only fitting to round up the best of the best in addition to all the important details (like what, when, and how) to ensure you get the product fix you deserve this holiday weekend. Because, hey, you've earned it. Keep reading for the must-see list of the best Labor Day beauty sales.
