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)! [Read more...]
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”!
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!
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!
Every so often, I have the opportunity to introduce you to makeup that’s truly revolutionary. NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow is providing me with this wonderfully rare opportunity. The formula is described as “transformative” by the brand, and it’s a description that fits like a glove. I’ve reviewed many wet/dry shadows in the past. Generally, the addition of water simply changes the intensity of color. In the case of NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow, the texture of the product changes too. From a high-pigment powder, this product transforms to the consistency of a gel liner.
Meet Lysithea (left), a smoky charcoal gray, and Dione (right), a mushroom brown. Each are perfect additions to your neutral eye makeup wardrobe. Want to see these colors truly sing, though? Click through for images of wet vs. dry. You don’t want to miss this. [Read more...]
