Edit: Some of you are saying BBR will not get a discount! Color me totally surprised on that one. MAC online always launches 2 days before the in-store launch, so I’m very surprised it’s not up today. According to MAC Live Chat, BBR has pushed to launch the 9th. Lil’ shady, if you ask me.

Have y’all seen Nordstrom’s Value-Sized Favorites section? I think it’s pretty nifty! I don’t remember if they’ve done this before or not, but it’s a great idea with the way people are cutting back on some of their spending. I know Nordstrom has had some special value-sized products in the past for sure, but I don’t remember so many of them.
I’m thinking about trying Kate Somerville Gentle Daily Wash ($95.00), because I was so impressed with her Oil-Free Moisturizer (which I am now out of, unfortunately!). For all the Smashbox Photofinsh fans, make sure you peep the value-sized version, going for $49. I know it’s also launching on their website, too. Now don’t you all wish we could afford Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lifting Creme? It only costs a cool $1,000! Mere pennies!
Nordstrom is having a special online-only sale where you can save 40% off on selected merchandise. Plus, they are stocking up on their Nordstrom-exclusive “value sized” beauty products of cult favorites!
Tarte’s having their end-of-year sale where you can save 20% off of all products when you shop tarte.com through December 31st!
