Nordstrom Gift with Purchase: Now Through Aug. 14, Get This Coral Case Crammed with Beauty Bits

Published in: News

It doesn’t take much arm twisting to get me to Nordstrom. Pretty much any excuse will do (“Since I’ll be in the area anyway…” “They have a great outdoor cafe,” “I still have that dress to return.”), but there’s always room for another one, like this sweet gift with purchase in the Cosmetics Department. Now through August 14, valid both in stores and online, it comes with everything shown in the pics above and below.


Spend $125 or more in makeup and/or fragrance and take home this orange cosmetic case filled with 12 deluxe-sized samples from Laura Mercier, Lancome, Kate Somerville, Philosophy, Caudalie, Trish McEvoy, Anastasia Bevery Hills, Clarins, Ahava, DKNY, Xen-Tan and the Nordstrom store brand.

My favorites of the bunch are the little Laura Mercier Lipstick in Sand Castle (closed it’s barely 2-inches tall!) and the itty-bitty bottle of DKNY PureEau de Parfum (that’s it in the pic at the top).

If you’re planning to restock any makeup must-haves, now might be the time.


Woke up with this song stuck in my head…

Yes, I own a Spice Girls CD. There, I said it! And I’m not (very) ashamed. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    I dont shop there at all but uhhh this freebie is making it sound worth while.

  2. Wendy says:

    Ooooo I do need to buy more Laura Mercier tinted sunscreen. Thinking of what else I can add to my shopping list.

    • Karen says:

      I like the way you think! ๐Ÿ˜€ Um, maybe some bath and body goodies from Laura? She makes really great perfumes, body washes and lotions that I think don’t get nearly enough as much love as they should.

    They’re all so tiny, how adorable! I wonder how many swipes before the lipstick is gone?

    i love how tiny it is! i am a sucker for cute teenytiny makeup things!

  6. Karen says:

    Me too! My favorites are tiny little perfume bottles. Last year I saw a set with three tiny Chanel perfume bottles at the airport, and I’m still kicking myself for not buying it. Of course I’d never use it… I’d keep it on my shelf for display. ๐Ÿ˜€

    I am also a sucker for tiny products. My whole life I have enjoyed miniature things. I had a tiny soap collection when I was a kid and hotels actually had tiny versions of brand name soap. Now all they have have are generics unless you go to a high end hotel. I had Dove, Olay, Safeguard, Dial, Irish Spring, etc. If you love mini’s and trial sizes as much as I do, try Love that place! Check out the “boutique”.

  8. Trisha says:

    I want! Too bad there isn’t a Nordstrom anywhere near here. Sadness.

    I love Nordstrom. Karen, the Ahava brand’s hand cream is amazing. It sinks in immediately and keeps my hands nice and soft. I picked up a twin pack of it during the Nordstrom anniversary sale online.

  10. Kim says:

    I’m such a compulsive sample lover. I have a drawer full that I haven’t used yet, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting more! ๐Ÿ™‚ Our closest Nordie’s is about 4.5 hours away, so I’ll be resisting this temptation!

  11. Brody says:

    Girl, no need for any shame over the Spice Girls. I have both of their CDs, and while I don’t listen to them often, they’re great reminders of the 90’s! ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. laksh says:

    Tempting little pack of samples, wish I could shop there.

  14. Christi says:

    Sooo, I too am suckered in by these small samples and I always try to take advantage of them. HOWEVER, now I have bag fulls of these samples and I don’t even know when I got them! How do you manage to actually use them when you get them?

  15. Jenn says:

    Ooo decent minis are so hard to come by. This is tempting! ๐Ÿ™‚
