While I'm counting down the days until it's socially acceptable to start blasting Christmas music, Sephora's Black Friday 2017 sales just became available on the Sephora app. If this is the brand's way of telling me to slow it down and revel in the Thanksgiving magic, I'm totally here for it.

Just like last year, Sephora loves to give a preview of their deals leading up to Black Friday. It's not only a way for you to prevent buyer's remorse, it also takes the frustration out of speedy Black Friday shopping. The catch: You have to download the Sephora App to get the exclusive preview first. But considering it's way easier to sneakily scroll through the app at work than browse on your desktop computer, this is actually a gift in disguise. Members of Sephora's Beauty Insider Community got the scoop three days early, so if you don't belong, seriously exit this story right now and sign up —but don't forget to come back.

This year, Sephora's offerings include sets and products at $15 and under, which means you're getting some of the best brands for almost 75 percent off. In addition, the beauty behemoth is also releasing two exclusive palettes by Kat Von D and Too Faced. Now because I love you, and I also want to start making my list, below are some of the best items included in the Black Friday deals. Don't forget to DL the app for the full list of exclusive releases, of course, but think of this as the preview of the preview.
