Nordstrom’s Limited Edition Beauty Must-Haves

Mark your calendars, ladies! Nordstrom’s Anniversary Beauty Exclusive Event begins on July 16 and goes through Aug. 1. For those readers unable to deal with the elbow throwing, credit-card-slam-down crowds, the pre-sale is in full swing with more than 100 designer brands participating including Marc Jacobs, Bobbi Brown and Laura Mercier. Two limited-edition items poised to sell out include Quator Boutons de Chanel, a rich quartet of nudes ranging from matte to satin for contrasting looks, and Dior’s Ready-to-Wear Palette, a deluxe sampling of fall runway trends including four eye shadows, a three-tone bronzer, two lip glosses and a blush. Oh my!

For those whose own vanity already resembles a makeup boutique, the sale doesn’t just include cosmetics. La Prairie is offering an exclusive anniversary gift filled with samples of Skin Caviar Luxe Eye Lift Cream, Anti-Aging Anti-Wrinkle Line Filler, Cellular Cleansing Water and Cellular Hand Cream all packaged in a one-of-a-kind weaved beauty bag. This skin revitalizing set is sure to cause some frown lines on south county dermatologists.

DKNY is putting a smile of everyone’s face with the launch of its latest scent PURE. Be the first to experience this light and airy perfume that is composed of floral notes and a slight hint of African vanilla. This fragrance allows buyers to smell divine and donate to some wonderful causes as PURE DKNY supports local communities by taking “small steps to make a difference, pure and simple.” Being charitable never smelled so divine.

For our savvy gentlemen shoppers, make sure and check out Anthony Logistics Glycolic Cleanser, which helps fight the effects of premature aging by helping to erase fine lines and wrinkles. The cleanser is also renowned for softening and smoothing the skin post shave. Don’t be surprised if this leads to more late-night kisses.
