Drop Everything: Kosas Is Having a Massive Site-Wide Sale
With the next shopping event (Black Friday) still a decent time away, we’ve been hoping one of our favorite brands might surprise us with some deals to hold us over. And today, that dream came true when Kosas announced it's having a site-wide sale. On October 27 and 28 only, the clean beauty brand is offering 20 percent off everything. In other words, our wallet is about to take a major hit. Here, 12 of our favorite Kosas products we’ll be picking up while they’re discounted.
1. The Big Clean Mascara
Made with haircare-level ingredients that serve to nourish and promote the natural hair growth cycle, you'll get fluffier, healthier lashes with consistent use. It's like a lash serum and mascara in one simple, everyday product. Not to mention, the Provitamin B5 does wonders for reviving lashes.
2. Chemistry Deodorant
So much more than just a deodorant, this underarm serum nixes odor-causing bacteria, brightens skin and minimizes ingrown hairs. And because it’s is made with skincare-grade ingredients, it also soothes irritated skin, smoothes bumps, visibly brightens the darker underarm area and prevents ingrown hairs in the process.
3. Super Creamy + Brightening Concealer
Finding a clean concealer that actually performs is a tall order. Which is why we had 10 women test it to see whether or not it lived up to its claims. Spoiler alert: It totally did. Our testers said it “blends like a dream,” “lasts throughout the day,” and “doesn’t crease at all.” And with 16 buildable shades, you’re bound to find one that works for you.
4. Wet Lip Oil Gloss
Finally, a lip gloss that isn’t sticky or clumpy but happens to be ultra nourishing. Kosas’s Wet Lip Oil Gloss contains ultra-hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, peptides, shea butter and avocado oil, which work to plump and hydrate your pout—while providing shine, of course. In fact, one editor says it moisturizes so well, she’ll use it in place of a balm when her lips need a little TLC.
5. The Sun Show Bronzer
Ever wish your complexion could look just as bronze and glowy as it does during golden hour? Say no more. That’s exactly what the makeup geniuses at Kosas had in mind when they developed this baked bronzer. “It doesn’t just make me look sun kissed. It makes me look lit from within!” says one enthusiastic reviewer. We’re sold.
6. Tinted Face Oil
Ever since this weightless foundation came out two years ago, PureWow editors have been obsessed. “It's super lightweight and I can't feel it on my skin at all. Plus it gives that blurred, Instagram pretty filter effect IRL. I mix a few drops with an illuminating primer and it leaves the dewiest, most natural glow. I'm a fan for life,” says senior commerce editor Brianna Lapolla. Psst, the formula is infused with six active botanicals, so you can trust it provides coverage and skincare.
7. Kosasport LipFuel - Extra-Strength
This ultra-restorative balm combines the soothing benefits of CBD with hydrating hyaluronic acid for the ultimate lip care experience. The nourishing formula will leave your lips looking plumper, softer and healthier than ever. However, as the website notes, if you’re adding this one to your cart, you'll have to purchase it separately from all other products (it's all because of the CBD).
8. THE MOST WANTED LIP SET
There’s truly no lipstick quite like this one from Kosas. It’s a creamy formula made with six botanical oils to hydrate and nourish like a lip balm, but with the payoff of a lip color. This set includes three of the brand’s most popular pinky-neutral shades: Rosewater, Stardust and Undone.
9. Kosasport Lipfuel
Want a lip balm that leaves your lips feeling hydrated even after it wears off? Yeah, Kosasport Lipfuel does that. It’s chock full of active skincare ingredients like hyaluronic acid, vitamin E and konjac root to smooth, repair and plump. “My lips stay hydrated for hours without reapplying,” confirms Lapolla.
10. Color & Light Palette
We’re all about dewy, natural makeup, so this cream blush and highlighter duo is one of our go-tos. We’re partial to the Velvet Melon compact, which includes a peachy pink blush and bronze highlighter that makes it look like we just spent the day in the sun. Even when we blend it on with our fingers.
11. 10-Second Eye Shadow
After almost five months of social distancing, our makeup routine is practically nonexistent. Which means there’s absolutely no way we’re breaking out our eyeshadow palette on the rare occasion that we do go out in public. Thankfully, Kosas has this 10-Second Eyeshadow option that, as the name implies, is super easy to swipe on and head out the door. It’s crease-resistant and quick-drying, too.
12. Weightless Lip Color
The Weightless Lip Color in Thrillist is one of beauty director Jenny Jin’s all-time favorite lipsticks, so you know it has to be good. “It’s the perfect poppy red: The texture is creamy, the color payoff is incredible and the ingredient list is clean. I truly enjoy wearing it,” she says. BRB while we pick up one in every shade.
