It's a big day for beauty junkies, who finally have a quick-change online discount site of their very own—The Fairest, which launched this morning with three-day sales on Stila cosmetics and Coola sunscreens. All of the items are a flat 50% off, and as far as the Stila products are concerned, there's a good representation of core products (e.g. Lip Glazes, All Over Shimmer, Illuminating Concealer, several kinds of bronzers).
The site also boasts an educational element—each brand has its own page with a description of its history, while Stila's even goes so far as to include a tutorial video, a step-by-step guide to achieving the smokey eye, tips from makeup artists on how to wear some of the products in the sale, and a list of best-sellers to get you started. There's also a blog component, which, at the moment, includes informational posts on featured sale items and a Q&A with hairstylist Sally Hershberger. All in all, it's worth staying tuned—Jurlique, Tarte, Cosmedicine, Butter London and MOR fragrances are all on deck for the days to come.
