Friday Favorites - Nordstrom Beauty Bag Review and Giveaway

Hey, friends!  It's Friday again and is the very first Friday Favorites Linky Party!!!  
It's seems only fitting that today I get to share something extra special with y'all JUST for this occasion :)

Momfessionals

Today I'm sharing the Nordstrom Beauty Bag with y'all!!!

It's available starting today on HauteLook (8 am Pacific Time!) - a site offering exclusive savings (like CRAZY discounts!) to its members.  It's free to join, and takes less than a minute.  New to the HauteLook site is Nordstrom Rack.  You can toggle between the two sites, add items from both sites to your cart and check out once!  Items that you purchase from either site can be returned to a local Nordstrom Rack (or by mail) within 90 days of purchase.

On to the beauty bag!  I love getting mail and this was no exception.  :)

I opened it up and it was JAM PACKED with goodies!

(sidenote: doesn't everyone reviewing cosmetics take pics on their kids little table?!?! hahaha)

I tried this Rose Face Mask by fresh Wednesday night and REALLY enjoyed it.  It was cooling and light and the scent was really pretty.


I also tried out this Kiwi Face Scrub by Mario Badescu and enjoyed it as well!  It has kiwi seeds and soft pieces of seaweed to exfoliate (but not tons.... I don't know if I'd really even call it a scrub) and it smelled GREAT! (can you tell smells are important to me??? hahaha)

One of these Stila Lip Glazes were in the bag and I immediately tried it out.  It was definitely stickier than some of my other glosses - but it lasted ALL DAY! I'm a sucker for lip gloss and so I was really excited about this one!


I am ALL ABOUT easy and one step and so I'm pumped to try out this facewash/makeup remover.  I would have tried it out on Wednesday night BUT I didn't have any makeup on on Wednesday (#lazyday #momlife). hahaha

I haven't tried out this Lancome cream yet - but I can attest to the fact that it smells really pretty :)

Ciate Mini Nail Lacquer and Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Peony.  There are 7 shades of the nail lacquer going into the bags and I really liked the one I got.  I used it Wednesday night and was SHOCKED at how quickly it dried! So fast I'm considering using it on GG's toes! :)    

This Locac Lip Lustre Gloss in peach has a really pretty shimmer...

... and I was intrigued by the Pink Pepperpod body wash :)  It does have a peppery smell - but it's oddly awesome.


I'm excited to try out this Living Proof Perfect Hair Day styling treatment and I'm always game for trying a new mascara.

This whish pomegranate body butter smells HEAVENLY!!!

And am I'm the only one who loves to have little perfumes to put in my desk drawer and/or purse??? :)


So ladies - what are your thoughts??? Fun, right???  I'm a total creature of habit and get stuck in a rut with my normal products and mixing it up a bit with some new stuff is a treat!

It's a $180 value and is on HauteLook starting today for just $25!  

I think it would be a super fun little gift for a girlfriends birthday or for a friend who may need a sweet little "pick me up" :)  I'm thinking stocking stuffer type gift for moms, mother-in-laws, sisters and sister-in-laws too!  It would also make a fantastic teacher gift! Perfect for the beginning of the school year, Christmas or her birthday.  Trust me - I would LOVE to receive this as a teacher gift!
Of course, if you're ordering one for someone else you should add one for you too. :)

Click HERE to order - but don't forget that you can't buy until 8 am Pacific Time (so 10 am CST).

I have one to give away as well - woo hoo!!! So enter below to win!!!


Thank you to HauteLook for providing the beauty bags for me to share and review!

Now... be sure to copy the image at the top of the post, link to me, Erika or Narci and share your Favorites this Friday!!!

  10. I have been on the search for a new makeup bag! I used Smashbox foundation back in the States and loved it! It was a bit expensive for a tiny bottle but it ended up lasting for months! $25 is a great deal for all that is included in these makeup bags.
