MAC x Star Trek Collection
MAC x Star Trek Collection

I have a sneak peek of a sneak peek featuring MAC x Star Trek Collection, as I received a few pieces from the launch, but there are several more products releasing (about double what you see here) that I don’t have. I’m waiting to get official promotional imagery, and once I have that, I’ll post info about all the shades, but the pertinent details are: pre-sale for attendees of Comic Con right now, available online August 25th and in-stores September 1st (North America) at select locations. The collection features matte black packaging with a metallic silver Star Trek logo with the same style for the boxes.

Saks Extra 10% Off Sitewide | Including Beauty & Fragrance July 22nd through July 24th

Saks Fifth Avenue

SAKS is offering 10% off sitewide, which includes beauty and fragrance, now through July 24th with code SAKS5A. (There are some designer exclusions.)  Below you’ll find what I’ll personally be picking up along with some of my higher-end favorites–for 10% off, I typically focus on brands that almost never go on sale (like Cle de Peau or Tom Ford) or just-released items that aren’t available elsewhere yet (speaking of which, just saw a few of Dior’s fall collection pop online this morning)! What do you have your eye on?

On my list…

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access Now Live!

NORDSTROM - Nordstrom Credit Cardholders: Shop Anniversary Sale Early Access through July 21!

I am a personal fan of the annual Nordstrom Anniversary sale (right after this post, I’m indulging myself in some window shopping and hunting down of my basics, like some go-to jeans and tops and trying to avoid the shoe department like the plague). Here are some beauty exclusives that are on my list to pick up… (P.S. If you’re curious about what I get that’s non-beauty, let me know and I’ll share!)

Beauty Exclusive Highlights

These are some of the more interesting products that I saw on the site this morning.  I am tempted to pick-up the La Mer set as a treat for my mom for her birthday (which isn’t until November), but we’ll see. You can view all of the Beauty Exclusives hereWhat’s on your list?  What did you haul?
