Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Chanel Nordstrom Exclusive Collection

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts very soon (products can be pre-booked already in some cases).

I think of the Nordie’s Anniversary Sale as Christmas in July! It’s a great time to stock up on products that are available for a limited time, exclusively at Nordstrom stores.

Psstt…I have come to see these products available under different names in other locations in a few months time though, how ’bout you?

I’ll be sharing with you a sneak peek of some great products that will be available during the sale so sit back, grab your Nordie’s credit card, and start plotting that order.

Jump ahead to lay your eyes on the Nordstrom Exclusive Chanel Collection.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer

I wasn’t terribly impressed with the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Foundation when it released. The actual design of the product is interesting and I like the application method even though I can’t help but shudder over the bacteria that may be lurking in that little puff (Maybelline claims it’s treated with an anti-bacterial agent but I’m not convinced).

My main problem with the foundation was it felt greasy on my face and had a really long dry down time. It remained dewy to the touch hours after application. Some proclaimed it set fabulously with powder but I have drier skin so I normally avoid powder. Others proclaimed it a flawless finish and indeed, it did give a rather great overall finish but it was that greasy, slick, never drying formula that threw me for a curve ball.

Am I bias against drugstore foundation? Possibly but I really do think Age Rewind wasn’t all that fabulous a pick. What did you think if you tried it?

Maybelline gifts us with an early Fall release and extension on the Age Rewind idea with a new concealer. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer might be good…I’m kinda hyped here peeps. Age Rewind Foundation sucked it hard but maybe the concealer will prove brilliance on a stick.

Jump!
