Current Best Beauty Buy - October 2011

Note:  As of November 1st this deal no longer applies. 

As a follow-up to my blog about buying great quality makeup for a deal, here is one example of one of the best deals I've seen in a long time.  I always recommend buying at Holiday times (Christmas/Mother's Day/etc) because there are always package deals you cannot find at any other time - so this kind of seals the deal for me.


Ok, so just buy $100 worth of cosmetics or fragrances at (this is online only) - shipping is ALWAYS free - doesn't matter what amount you spend (to get free shipping) and you get the following:

Get 13 travel-size beauty favorites in a sparkly black cosmetics bag with your $100 beauty or fragrance purchase.*
Gift includes:
  • ARCONA Gentle Solution Treatment (0.33 oz.)
  • Balenciaga Paris Glass Vial Perfume Sample (0.13 oz.)

  • Lancôme Cils Booster XL Super Enhancing Mascara Base (0.07 oz.)

If you have ANY fragrances, beauty items for yourself or others (think holiday) - this is a fantastic deal.  

Here is a run down of just a few deals from gifts that different Cosmetic/Fragrance lines are offering that you could make out like a bandit on:

Amazing Lancome Holiday set: 

Lancôme 'Lancôme 'Rénergie Lift Volumetry' Holiday Set ($171 Value)

The facts:
Skin’s cells need to communicate with each other constantly to maintain a support structure that keeps skin looking youthful.

The Lancôme solution:
Rénergie Lift Volumetry is our first skin treatment featuring the GF-Volumetry™ complex, shown to help support cellular communication¹.

The results:
See your skin visibly lifted, firmed and reshaped. Cheeks appear re-plumped, jaw line appears refined and the facial angle appears improved by eight degrees².

- Rénergie Lift Volumetry (1.7 oz.).
- Rénergie Lift Volumetry Eye (0.5 oz.).
- High Résolution Collaser-5X™ (0.5 oz.).

¹In-vitro test.
²Based on clinical scoring of the profile angle of the neck and jaw line after four weeks of use of Rénergie Lift Volumetry SPF 15 Cream. 


Go to the Nordstrom Beauty site to obviously see more - makeup and fragrance, but I just wanted to make you aware of some of the fantastic ways to either stock up for yourself, try something new or buy some great gifts.  

The last time I got one of these amazing deals, I found items that I would not have ordinarily purchased, but it opened me up to new items, like the Tanning Towel Self Tanner and the Marc Jacobs Hollywood fragrance.  

Note: Clinique at Nordstrom is about to have their gift with purchase that would make the *perfect* storm.  

  1. Spend $125 in: special holiday gifts (always free, extra items, larger items), sets (new and different items, free items, larger/different sizes), your basics
  2. Get all the free gifts mentioned above
  3. Free shipping
  4. Free Clinique gift that always has tons of great items
If that isn't the perfect storm.... I don't know what is! 

Happy Shopping!  

Let me know if you have any questions or have better or different beauty buy ideas!
