I actually just started using one that I bought with this deal last time-Tom Ford’s Extreme Mascara, and I am loving it! I have really sensitive eyes and this one isn’t bothering them at all 🙂

I did the same last go round and took a chance on Tom Ford Extreme as well after reading reviews. I’ve tried some of the other high end brands (Chanel, Dior) and they just didn’t impress me anymore than cheaper brand mascaras. Really loving the Tom Ford one, performs in the ways I want and I use it a lot.

Love this sale! Don’t need any this go around because I stocked up last time, but it’s something I always keep an eye out for it!

I’ve become a Diorshow convert. It’s a nice balance of natural and drama and the waterproof holds up so well to my allergy eyes 🙂

Thanks for the heads up Christine! I got a deluxe sample of the Diorshow Maximizer Lash Primer and have fallen in love with it. A lot of mascaras, even supposedly waterproof and budgeproof ones will smudge on my oily lids/wet waterline, but this primer makes them last so much longer. I hope the lash primer counts as “mascara” for this sale.

Christine, what’s your high ene recommendation? For high end I’ve really only used LANCOME mascara, with the exception of samples. I will be watching this post to see what others recommend.

Guerlain Cils d’Enfer is a good multi-purpose mascara! My all-time favorite is Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill (original). Have also had good luck with MAC Mineralize Multi-Effect Lash, Dior Diorshow, and Tom Ford Extreme.

I ordered Guerlain’s Maxi Lash, Chanel LE Volume, and Armani’s Eyes To Kill. I may end up placing a second order for another three, if they let me. I want Dior Show Overcurl and Tom Ford Extreme. Six tubes of mascara seems a bit excessive. Somebody reign me in?!

If you’re looking for a good daily wearer, than original Diorshow! It’s enough drama you can tell you’re wearing some in one coat, but it doesn’t give you a falsie look either or feel like its too much for the office.

Guessing as per same old same old, this offer does not apply to cross border purchases 🙁

I will def check it out, but it didn’t work previous 2 years.

Yes no international shipping but I have an US adress now. There Are some services where you get an US adress and they Send it to you. Very happy with that especially because I can Order from now. Now I get every LE things I want without Having Any stress.

I have a US address service as well. I tend to use it for items I cannot get in Canada or shipped directly to Canada. I can get this mascara on Lauder canada website. The problem with my US address service: I never seem to have the patience to send at a slower pace to save some $$$. So.. whatever savings I realize on the mascara deal would be eaten up with shipping costs.

Guerlain Cils D’Enfer is my favorite and has been for the last several years. I still have 2 unopened ones from the last sale so I’m good this time around.

Yay! I just ordered some that I’ve been wanting to try! This is a good time to stock up – anyone know how often they have this sale?

I think it’s two or three times a year? It seems more often than it used to be, but it could just be colored memories!

Thanks for the heads up Christine! What do people think about some of the other high-end mascaras like Cle de Peau and Chantecaille?

Thank you so much for mentioning this! I feel like you can never have too many backup mascaras. I got Guerlain Cils d’Enfer Maxi Lash Mascara in Brown, YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara in Rich Brown and Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill-Classic Mascara in Black. I’ve only tried the YSL one (I’m using it now and love it-so happy to have another). I’m really excited to try the other two.

I love love YSL babydoll, getting that and trying out the Chanel volume and Dior Hypnose Drama. I’ve heard really good things on those two.

Will buy my all Time favourite Mascara bare Minerals volumizing Mascara in Espresso
Which they Do not sell in Europe anymore.

Thank you for posting this Christine! I’m on the Nordstrom site frequently, but always seem to miss this sale. Not today. I purchased:
Giorgio Armani ‘Black Ecstasy’ Mascara – obsidian black
CHANEL INIMITABLE INTENSE Mascara Multi-Dimensionnel Sophistiqué -noir
Dolce&Gabbana Beauty ‘Passioneyes’ Curl & Volume Mascara – blue indaco
The D&G was a total impulse buy, both the brand and the color. Figured this would be a good time to try a different color. It looks likes a deep black-blue online.

I bought 1 Armani ETK Classic in Black, 1 Armani ETK Black Ectasy in Obsinian Black and 1 ETK Black Ectasy in Wood, and scored an Armani GWP of a deluxe Rose Ashes Eye Tint and an Eye Serum sample. I wanted to try the Guerlain but couldn’t if I wanted the Armani GWP. Next time! Yes, it’s twice a year-May & November. I have never tried the ETK mascara but have read plenty of great reviews. Can’t wait to get it! Other favs of mine are Chanel Le Volume and Dior Extase (which they may have dc’d as I haven’t seen it lately).
