Alrighty, Nordstrom is now letting you pre-order the exclusive items for the Anniversary sale. If you are uninitiated to it, the anniversary sale is HUGE. We’re talking exclusive collections, value sizes, you name it! This post is going to be dedicated to cosmetics.

First up, Bobbi Brown has her “Best of Bobbi” set. It retails for $75, and features a 7-colour lip palette, a two pan shadow palette, a full-size gel eyeliner, a mini mascara, and a mini double-ended brush (eyeliner/eyeshadow fluff). While not a palette for people who like brights, this is a very good Christmas present for someone who prefers more neutral colours, or needs makeup that can go from day to night very easily. All the lip shades are muted roses and pinks, and the eye shades are a champagne and then a grey.

Trish McEvoy has a few things. First up is the Simplicity Little Black Card-a double-decker full-face palette. I normally hate full-face palettes, however the cream products are on one and the powder on another. This has a bronzer, a blush, a lilac eyeshadow, a nude highlight shade, and a navy liner on top, and then on the bottom, a concealer, two lipglosses, and a lip colour. This retails for $58, and it’s the perfect thing for when you are cramped for time and/or space. She also has a brush set that retails for $65, and you get a blush brush, a tapered eyeliner, a fluff eyeshadow, and a lip, all in a cutesy pink quilted case. Finally, there’s the Petite Makeup Planner. I actually like the idea of having makeup in a sort of planner page, and with this, you get a lip colour, an all-over shimmer powder, a blush, a bronzer, three eye colours, and an eye definer, along with a mini lip liner and a mini eye primer. This retails for $75, and again, is a great gift idea. Read the rest of this entry »

So if you are into crazy packaging, this is the item for you. It’s retailing for a whopping $95-however Sephora has it for $75 right now AND with free shipping. Hell yes.

The item itself isn’t that spectacular as far as the contents go-it’s two pans: one has a highlighter, the other has a cheek/lip colour. So for the $75 that this now is, you aren’t getting a whole helluva lot of product. When you buy this item, you’re paying for the packaging-which is designed to look like a Lady Dior handbag, with “DIOR” charms, little handles, and the best part-cannage detailing.

I mainly am lusting after this because I am a fanatic of the Dior cannage pattern, and this item would be a definite collectors piece. I wouldn’t really use the products inside though-I may use the lip thing, but it would be a P.I.T.A. to carry around my lip brush as well. That, coupled with the price, makes it less appealing for many. But I still likey:)
