philosophy ‘purity made simple’ one step facial cleanser ($42.50) philosophy’s ‘purity made simple’ was created because it was our feeling that most cleansers were not getting the skin clean enough.

Most cleansers are formulated to foam, push around, and hopefully rinse away dirt and makeup. ‘purity made simple’ was formulated to actually emulsify and dissolve dirt, embedded debris and makeup rather than creating a lot of foam without a lot of clean.

You want a cleanser that will multi-task for you (eye makeup remover, cleanser, toner). You wear a lot of makeup. Your skin is congested.

    Wish I lived in the U.S. I would go immediately to Nordstrom’s and buy some of the beauty exclusives!

  3. I think I might pic up MAC Sweet Tease and the Shu Uemura and maybe Nars lol :)

  4. Avatar of Cindy Cindy

    Such a pitty that Nordstrom don’t deliver to the Netherlands :-(

  5. Kim

    i really want that mac look in a box thing… will either go for sweet tease or seductress…

  6. Sass

    Lovely lovely sale. Gotta get my list over to my Nordstrom hook up for this one. Thanks for posting this!

  7. Ordered Sweet Tease and I think one of the MAC Graphic Garden palettes… which I’m not so excited about anymore lol… so will probably go and exchange it for something else soon as I go pick up the look-in-a-box.

  8. Loving that Lancome Declaring Indigo brush set!

  9. Jenn

    I already ordered the Lancome brush set and a few items of the fall Nars collection (fast ride l/s & mekong e/s) since my Nordies has it in already. I really want the ZO set (I <3 the exfoliating polish) and the T3 dryer. I can’t wait to pick my stuff up this week!

  10. Lindsay

    those lancome brushes look DELICIOUS!

  11. I’m looking into Philosophy Microdelivery exfoliating wash since it’s at a discount for soooo much product… but I’ve never used it! Does anyone have any thoughts?

    • PapillonLady

      Philosophy Microdelivery is DELICIOUS!!!! The exfoliating “beads” are incredibly smooth and micro-tiny, yet very effective, and there are billions of them. I just started using this, and I love it!!! The fragrance is clean and fresh. My skin looks so fresh and pretty after using it. I use it on my face, neck, chest, shoulders… you will love having the HUGH size offered at the “Anniversary”. :-) Hope this helps!

    • I’ve only used a sample – I liked it, but I wasn’t able to really test drive it, y’know?

  12. Millie

    I wish Shu Uemura would do color palettes for Nordstrom’s anniversary. I think last year, they did almost the same set too. They don’t even have the depsea mist set this year!

  13. Crazy for Make up

    Got my MAC Graphic Garden, NARS palette and Bare Escentuals set.
    Just a quick note, it appears that Bobbi Brown has a $75 brush set (I’m not sure if it is anniversary exclusive) that is not quite advertised yet, but the size is between the current travel size (short handle) and the regular long handle. Seems to be an awesome deal and finally something in between for regular use.

  14. liz

    crap i think i want the lancome mascara set too!
