10th Commandment: Nordstrom Beauty Sale


Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage ($28)

Department stores are notorious for excluding cosmetics and beauty products from their best sales.  Makeup is usually what they mean when they say “certain exclusions apply.”  But this week, Nordstrom is hosting a beauty and skincare sale that features 10-percent-off some of the best beauty products on the market today.

Granted, 10% is not a huge discount, but every little bit helps.  So if you need to replace a beloved product or you want to purchase something new from a store with a very liberal return policy, here’s your chance to save a little.

Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer is one of my favorite beauty products of all-time.  Unlike many concealers, it stays where you out it so your imperfections aren’t revealed midday.  All of Laura Mercier’s products are featured in the sale, so don’t miss the Secret Camouflage Brush perfect for concealing blemishes or small imperfections.

Some other great products on sale include my favorite Bobbi Brown blushes and her sheer lip color.  I also love this NARS palette with deep gemstone and earth tones.  Also, if this sunny weather has you feeling a bit pale, don’t miss the St. Tropez mousse, the best, most natural-looking self-tanner on the market.

Brand loyal?  Don’t miss sales on Philosophy, Clinique, Kiehl’s and more.

    Estee Lauder! Advanced Night Repair is SO expensive, so 10% off makes a great difference. I also re-upped on my Touche Eclat.
