It’s all too easy for me to get lost in the aisles of Walgreens when I visit. It seems like Walgreens makeup selection increases by the day, and it’s so easy to play with the testers without being hounded by commission-happy representatives.  Ah… the peace of shopping at the corner drugstore!  I created a Spring Walgreens Beauty Look back in February, and loved the look I created so much, I used it as my Facebook profile photo!  Now it’s time to update my “assignment” for summer (and hopefully my Facebook profile photo, once again)!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Alert!

Unless you have a Nordstrom Card (which means early access) don’t buy anything until July 18th, when the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2014 will begin!  The deals are plentiful, so you should definitely wait to score the discounts not to mention a killer Lancôme Gift With Purchase and an Estee Lauder Gift With Purchase!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Exclusives 2014 include these items that I deem “must-haves”!

butter LONDON, Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Exclusives

butter LONDON, Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Exclusives

The butter LONDON 10 piece set for only $49!  Ten gorgeous shades of color, bringing you to $4.90 per bottle of butter LONDON goodness.  Sold!

MAC Advanced Brush Kit, Nordstrom Beauty Exclusives

MAC Advanced Brush Kit, Nordstrom Beauty Exclusives

The MAC Basic Brush set is $49.50 for five MAC brushes.  I love MAC travel-sized brushes!  They’re a fraction of the price of a full-sized brush, but good enough to use daily.  Specifically I recommend the Advanced Brush Kit, because MAC’s Angled Foundation Brush is amazing.

 

The Laura Mercier Mini Lip Glace Set for $50 includes five shades of Laura Mercier Lip Glace for you to play with!  Shades include Daiquiri, Bare Pink, Whisper, Sweetheart, and Bonbon.

NARS Cheek Palette is $49, and includes bronzing powder in Laguna, Orgasm blush, and two limited-edition shades too!

Philosophy’s JUMBO sizes are such a steal!  I love to stock up on Purity during the anniversary sale, and the Purity Home & Away set includes a 32 oz. bottle of Purity, and an 8 oz. bottle of Purity perfect for travel or to perch in your shower.

GWPs to take note of:

Stock up on $45 or more of your Estee Lauder favorites to score the Anniversary GWP that includes skincare and an epic about of color!

With any $39.50 or more purchase of Lancôme, you’ll receive a GWP worth $140!
