Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale has officially kicked off and will last through August 1st at 11:59pm PST. In case you’re unfamiliar with it, the Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale spans two weeks with new-for-fall accessories, clothing, shoes, etc. marked down. Beauty brands also participate with exclusive products, sets and GWPs.
Did you stay up to catch the sale? ‘Cause I totally did, though, admittedly, midnight isn’t that late! I’m all about the SHOES. SHOES. SHOES! Share any and all hauls you may make! See ya there!!
My haul: I picked up darling Burberry flats because I clearly have a thing for Burberry. Couldn’t really allow myself much else after those!
Bobbi Brown Guava Lip Color ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is an opaque shade of peachy coral with no shimmer, just a soft sheen, and a creamy feel and look. It applies beautifully and makes lips look fuller and softer. This is a great way to wear coral without being too coral, and it’s a fitting shade for summer without being bright or bold, too. It’s not sheer so it’s still noticeable, though. Gotta love the scent- and taste-free nature of it, too!
The Summer Season is a series of posts featuring bright, vibrant shades of coral, orange, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for a summer of fun — that runs through July 2010.
theBalm Cabana Boy Blush ($21.00 for 0.3 oz.) is one whopper of a blush! It’s a muted raspberry pink with a subtle golden sheen that looks more luminous than shimmery. It’s plenty pigmented, but it can be sheered out for a subtler cheek, too (thankfully!)–definitely recommend using a light hand with this shade. The texture is soft, smooth, and silky. It applies beautifully and without a fuss.
It’s housed in a cardboard compact with vintage imagery. theBalm also gives you plenty o’ product–a veritable blush brick at 0.3 oz.–and you won’t have to shell out $40 to take advantage of the value, either. It’s reasonably priced as a high-end brand at $21 a pop.
