Makeup Musts – Plus Triple Points!

Starting today, Nordstrom is offering triple points! If you are a Nordstrom cardholder – this is big!!! There is also a beauty event going on, which makes it the perfect time to pick up some necessities!

I’ve posted about YSL’s Touche Eclat before, and I must say I cannot live without this concealer/ highlighter pen! It is the best and the first step when I do my makeup. I have color #2. Today, I ordered a BB cream by YSL as well! I also recently tried this Hourglass bronzer and I am in love!! I use it to highlight my cheeks after using the Ambient Lighting Power in Luminous Light all over my face to blur imperfections. I cannot recommend Hourglass enough – really, really good for sensitive skin as it is talc free, fragrance free, gluten free and paraben free! I started with their Palette (3 colors in one – see below!) last year and just bought the 2 others above – I am hooked! Both YSL and Hourglass are offering gift with purchase – don’t miss out on these amazing products and gifts! Plus free shipping!


That’s all for now ladies! Have a great week! xxx, Nikki
