Hey all! Even though pre-sale doesn’t technically begin until June 21st, Nordstrom stores are taking pre-orders for beauty exclusives. Nordstrom will have full details up on all Beauty Exclusives on June 21st online as well, but stores all have their books with details already! The Anniversary Sale kicks off on July 16th.
The lovely ladies at Nordstrom have told me that orders are fulfilled in the order they are received, so waiting until the 21st may not be your best bet. The list below is not an exhaustive list, but I tried to get as many of the major brands down as I could. It was a rather painstaking process, more for the Nordstrom rep than me, of course… If there’s a particular brand you want to find out about, I recommend calling a Nordstrom and simply asking — that’s what I did!
La Prairie Rose Bronze Lipstick ($55.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a beautiful, rosy red color base with shimmering gold and copper strewn through it with a slight sheen. It reminds me of MAC Thrills Lipstick when worn lightly (particularly over more pigmented lips!), which has the same rosy base but more copper-metallic flash. I like La Prairie’s lipsticks for the way the de-emphasize lip lines (takes about 10-15 minutes of wearing them to see the full effect–the swatch photo is of lipstick that’s been on only 1-2 minutes!) with rich color, and shades that I never quite can dupe. I also love that they wear very, very well–I get around five to six hours of solid wear.
