OK, I know. Wandering around “The Rack” (a.k.a Nordstrom Rack, the discounted outlet arm of Nordstrom) can feel like its own form of torture sometimes because… I JUST CAN’T with the clothing and shoe sections. Too overwhelming and disorganized.
But the beauty area is generally easier to navigate than the rest of the store, and sometimes, like RIGHT MEOW, they have amazing deals.
Three letters: M. A. C. Yup! If you live near a Nordstrom Rack, you might wanna pop in sometime soon, especially if you’re a MAC fan, because right now they’ve got some deep discounts on MAC products, with some items as much as half off.
And get this! — there’s lots of really good stuff on sale at the moment. It’s not just rand-o pieces from fly-by-night collections from, like, five years ago. I’m talking workhorse items and unsung heroes from the permanent collection that you can use all the time.
I stopped by the Nordstrom Rack near my house last weekend (Novato Vintage Oaks), and although the MAC shelves looked a little sparse and picked-over, I still found a few choice items, including…
41% off Paint Pots in Rubenesque and Constructivist — On sale for $12.87 (originally $22). Everyday cream shadow bases you can wear alone or layered underneath powder shadows (see Rubenesque and Constructivist on me).
41% off Pearlglide Intense Eye Liners in Lord It Up and Undercurrent — On sale for $9.97 (originally $17). Intense, silky, rich liners with bits of glitter. For use on the lash lines only (see a swatch of Lord It Up).
50% off MAC Pencil Sharpener — On sale for $4.97 (originally $10). If you own any of the MAC Pro Longwear pencils, you’ve gotta have a MAC Pencil Sharpener around. Other sharpeners don’t work as well as the MAC ones for that family of pencils for some reason.
