nordstrom haul

I picked up a few Christmas presents for myself at Nordstrom ...

1. Superbly Restorative Argan Dry Oil 
I picked this up as a inexpensive alternative to Moroccan Oil. It does the job, but after three days I feel like this doesn't seal up my frizzy damaged hair as nicely as Moroccan oil.
Also - EXTREMELY greasy. I won't be buying this again. 

2. Bobbi Brown Limited Edition Ultra Nude Eye Palette
This was a big of a splurge but I have been absolutely lacking as far as eyeshadow goes. I am beyond happy with this purchase, and the double sided brush is a great bonus. Love! 

3. Bobbi Brown Ultra Fine Eyeliner Brush
I recently lost my old angled M.A.C. eyeliner brush, which I had for almost 2 years and first bought when I was introduced to gel liner (I prefer the M.A.C. gel liners over Bobbi Brown gel liners). This brush has a much longer handle and allows me to have a lot more control. I can draw a beautiful thin line as easily as a fat line with a beautiful cat eye, with just the twist of my wrist.

4. M·A·C Cream Color Base in 'Hush'
I have been wanting a highlighter cream for awhile. Last year I tried out the NARS Orgasm in gel form, but I that was just toooo sparkly. I absolutely love how creamy this is and it layers beautifully when lightly dabbed on the skin. I use this currently as the last step to my face, and apply to the tops of the cheekbones, either side of my noes, center of the eyelids, and the inner corners of the eye. 

5. M·A·C 'Tour de Fabulous' Tinted Lipglass
This is what I picked up to wear on New Years Eve to make my all black sequined dress really pop. This color is to die for, and because its slightly coral and has blue undertones it was so easy to wear. Even after NYE, I find myself reaching for it -  I even wore it while babysitting Ruthie, age 8, and she commented on how beautiful it was (and she is a total fashion freak so I trust her opinion 100%).

I shopped at Nordstom on Michigan Ave in Chicago. The store was absolutely buzzing, and everyone was smiling - and it's times like this when I feel absolutely proud to be from the midwest.  All of the women who helped me at the Kiels, Bobbi Brown, and M.A.C. counters were a dream. Thanks Nordstrom for the excellent service!
