I’ve been on a clothes shopping freeze for the past month and a week ago, I reached my breaking point. I know that one month to most hardly qualifies as a “freeze” but there was a time when I was shopping every two weeks. What’s interesting is now, I’d rather shop for makeup than clothes or shoes.
I decided that I deserved a new piece to add to my wardrobe and walked over to Nordstrom Rack. If you haven’t been to or heard of Nordstrom Rack, it’s a version of Nordstrom that focuses on discount designer picks. I’d say it would counter a TJ Maxx or Marshalls, but focuses on brands that would be found in Nordstrom.
When I walked in I began to browse discount maxi dresses, and there it was. The beauty section. I’ve seen their beauty section before, and I wasn’t totally impressed but this time something was different. I saw Kiehls, Deborah Lippman, Too Faced and the most impressive selection of NYX products EVER. I also spotted a three pack of Lorac eye shadows for 11.98USD….I was shocked.
I’ve wanted to try Lorac products for a while, but never crossed paths with them. This was a sign. I scooped those up in a heartbeat along with a Too Faced Liquid Foundation.
The palettes are small, and mainly filled with shimmery shades, but there are two matte shadows and overall, the colors are very beautiful. I haven’t had the time to try them all but I’ve been using the bronzey shades all over the lid and under the bottom lash for a sun kissed look. I can’t wait to try a full eye with them! They don’t have individual names, so I just swatched them so you could see how they apply. They aren’t heavily pigmented, but I can see a lot of potential in looks.
I now have a new haven to score amazing discounted products! What do you all think of the colors?
Also, I’d like to thank everyone who participated in my Giveaway! I plan to incorporate more in upcoming posts, so stay tuned!
