Buy 2 Mascaras, Get 1 Free @ Nordstrom

Buy 2 Mascaras, Get 1 Free @ Nordstrom

Today (May 29th) only, Nordstrom is having a special where you can purchase two mascaras [from the same brand] and get a third free [of the brand’s top selling mascara]. It only applies to certain mascaras, which you can see here. Even though it says only applicable to certain brands, all the major mascara contenders are included — Chanel, Dior, Lancome — along with Bare Escentuals, Bobbi Brown, Chantecaille, Clarins, Clinique, Estee Lauder, Guerlain, Laura Mercier, MAC, NARS, Shiseido, Smashbox, Trish McEvoy, YSL and more.

Heads up, though I think doing this in-store will yield you more variety. Just like when Nordstrom did buy 2 eyeshadows, get 1 free for MAC, you could only get the same shade for free online, but in-store, you could choose. I haven’t been to Nordstrom (hey, it’s 7am!) today, so I couldn’t tell you myself, but you could always call and ask before making the trip over, too. :)  Funny enough, I don’t think there is any mascara I’d be willing to commit to with 2-3 tubes, haha.

I want to hear all about the beauty products you’ve recently purchased and worn. Tags are kind of like glorified surveys, but they’re fun ways to pass the time and learn a little more about each other :)

Feel free to tag your friends or other beauty bloggers if you want to see theirs, too! :)

Here’s mine…

  • Last Mascara you bought: Chanel Exceptionnel (repurchase!)
  • Last Lipstick you wore: MAC Beachbound
  • Last Look you wore that you LOVED!: A coral & bronze look (details here)
  • Last Eyeshadow you fell in love with: MAC Sweet & Punchy — I LOVE the texture. It’s so amazing.
  • Last Blush you wore: MAC Get-Away Bronze; I like it, but it can be hard to get to look just right in photos so it doesn’t just look dirty.
  • Last time you washed your brushes: Last night!  Any time I do a bolder/more colorful look, I wash my brushes right away so there is no staining to deal with!
  • Last nail polish you removed: China Glaze For Audrey — gotta put it on my toes again soon!

Haul: Make Up For Ever Aqua Creams x5, Kiehl’s UV 50 (the new one), MAC Marine Life

Excited for: No school on Monday!  Which mostly just gives me extra time to prepare for the last week of the quarter & get ready for finals.

Friday plans: I’m actually kind of a homebody.  I think it’s because I’m pretty busy during the week, and my weekends do slow down a bit, so I like to spend time with my family (the boyfriend and Mellanhead) or visiting my parents.  I think we may go out for either lunch or dinner and then settle in for some DVR!

This week’s Mellan photo…
