Its Time to Stock Up at Nordstrom’s
It comes but once a year — a little over a fortnight for beauty product connoisseurs to indulge in exclusive sets, super-size editions of cult favorites and generous gifts with purchase — Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is currently in full swing. After spending over a week poring, nay, obsessing over the offerings, I’ve finally narrowed it down to a few fabulous finds that you’ll not want to miss out on. But make haste, the sale ends Aug. 3! Add in a Nordstrom discount code and there is no reason not to check out the great deals.
Both warm and cool colors are represented in this exclusive collection for eyes, cheeks and lips, and you’ll love the smooth texture of long-lasting eye shadow Laura Mercier Flawless Expressions Set ($85.00)

As longtime fan of both Dr. Nicholas Perricone’s highly edifying books on anti-aging and his skin care line, I am eager to procure this exceptional set of Perricone MD blue plasma products: The Science of Plasma 2.0 Set ($98.00). The Blue Plasma Orbital Daily Eye Peel is a mild, non-acidic peel made with salmon egg enzyme that will keep the delicate skin tissue in your eye area smooth and wrinkle-free.
I love chypre fragrances, which tend to stand out against the endless parade of fruity-florals. I never seem to tire of sniffing the chypre Bottega Veneta, with its exquisite blend of Italian bergamot, Brazilian pink pepper, Sambac jasmine, leather, oak moss and patchouli — gorgeous! I shan’t be passing up on this Bottega Veneta Fragrance Set ($131.00). It contains a 2.5 eau de parfum spray and a 6.7-ounce body lotion.
