Nordstrom has many hidden gems and perfect for all you beauty bloggers & shoppers out there. Simera if you are reading this you will love this post! The beauty world has many followers which isn't always the best. If there is an item in high demand which is usually the case, it's very difficult to purchase it. People get so excited when companies like MAC release a collection. There are girls who will literally camp out online when a collection is about to release and buy everything up. Don't you hate it when you go to the website only to find out everything is sold out. Sephora is the same way when It comes to the most sought after items, you are lucky if you can find something that isn't sold out. One thing I learned quickly was to stop going onto the major beauty sites to buy my makeup. Unlike y previous post Ebay isn't your friend in this type of situation. Instead of saving money you will end of pay double & sometimes triple the retail price. The same girls who campout online to snag all the lipsticks you wanted, are the same girls selling them on eBay. It's a great way to make extra money, but it sucks for the girls who really want these items. Don't get ripped off ladies, try the Nordstrom way. Nordstrom has become my little secret to buying the latest beauty products & MAC collections. Hardly anyone thinks to go to Nordstrom to buy beauty products which allows you to finally get your hands on that lipstick you've been dying to have. Earlier this year mac released the wash & dry collection that had everyone going nuts. I'll be honest I only wanted this collection for the packaging just like everyone else. I was so happy the have found it on Nordstrom, and they sold the whole collection! You can also find items exclusively sold to Nordstrom shoppers, like the Nars Audacious mascara ( see slideshow below). This site also offers free shipping on everything no matter what the price. You can buy 1 lipstick and not have to worry about shipping costs. The amazement doesn't stop there, Let's say you try the lipstick but you don't like it you can simply send it back for FREE. Now do you see why I love this website so much? To add icing on the cake you can get 3 free beauty samples with your purchase, remember the benefits about samples in the last post? This site has a full page of awesome travel sized products for you to indulge in.
