Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Exclusives and Gifts with Purchase

I hit Nordstrom today to pick up my pre-sale MAC Beauty Exclusives, and I found that there were some other nice deals.

Laura Mercier has a nice sample of products in a pretty brown cosmetic bag. It includes deluxe Flawless Skin Day Creme SPF 15, a full-size Undercover Pot UC-3, exclusive full-size Pink Champagne Lip Glacé, exclusive Renaissance Eye Color Duo in nice everyday colors, mini Black Thickening and Building Mascara, and a double-ended Secret Camouflage Powder Brush and a mini velour puff. Billed as a $167 value, it was $65. If you want this one, they are running out of it all over the country. Hurry.

Clinique has a really nice bag for $45. It includes the "legendary" Almost Lipstick in Black Honey, which I have always loved, and five equally nice products: All-new Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturizer, All About Eyes, Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser, Dual-ended High Impact Mascara/High Impact Curling Mascara in Black, and a dual-ended Cream Shaper for Eyes, all in a pretty, large canvas makeup bag with darling silver handles and accents. This is billed as a $79 value.

My Nordstrom store has sold out of the Chanel eye and lip palette, as predicted. It appears that this is still available online, and you might be able to find it in the store closest to you.

As usual, MAC has fabulous Beauty Exclusives, including brush sets, Look in a Box in three color tones, eye shadow palettes, and a lip set (I got Baby Blooms - nice).

Last, but not least, there is a Bobbi Brown "Must Have Set," priced at $75. It has a
seven-well lip palette with lip brush (featuring Italian Rose Creamy Lip Color, Nude Pink Lip Color, Heather Buff Creamy Lip Color, Uber Pink Creamy Lip Color, Baby Peach Metallic Creamy Lip Color, Dusk Metallic Lip Color and Kir Metallic Lip Color), two-pan eyeshadow palette (featuring Nude Beach Metallic Eye Shadow and Hot Stone Eye Shadow), full-size Espresso Ink Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner, mini black Everything Mascara, and new mini dual-ended eyeshadow/ultra-fine eyeliner brush. Fabulous!

In the Gifts with Purchase category, I liked the Estee Lauder gift, but they had sold out of every new color product I wanted. Too bad, but I won't invent "wants" just to get a freebie.

Jo Malone has a gift with purchase. The most incredible offer is that you can get a discount on the colognes if you buy two. Jo's fragrances are never discounted!

Hurry over to Nordstrom or order online for these and other great buys. At my store, the Chanel exclusive was sold out, the Laura Mercier set was almost gone, and others will disappear soon. You don't want to be late to this party.
