Nordstrom Beauty Exclusives Love

I was looking around, and I discovered that Nordstrom is having some great deals on makeup, skincare, and fragrances soon. All items will be available on July 17, but you can pre-order these items now! This is for those spenders out there.

Here are some items that caught my eye:

Graphic GardensMac Graphic Gardens Palette $35.00
Six limited-edition eyeshadows in a metal compact featuring the black-and-white M·A·C logo/floral poppy lenticular pattern of the Graphic Garden collection. Features Social Climber, Botanical Blue, Straight Hedge, Wild Wisteria, Linear Lilac and Graphic Garden.
They also have this in Fresh Cut with pink and orange. I'm not talented at using orange on my eyes without making it look like I have a rash! If I were going to pick one it would be Graphic Gardens. This is the Beauty and Gardens blog after all! It is so striking! Any suggestions on how to wear this? I'll be looking for tutorials when it comes out.

Nars Modern Love Palette $55.00
This Nordstrom exclusive six-well palette of signature NARS eyeshadow shades is the ultimate achievement in day-to-evening elegance for the eyes. Shades included in palette are Alhambra I, Tokyo I, Jezebel II, India Song II, Habanera II and Pandora II.
This palette look more like what I would get. It's the perfect palette to me. I love all the earthy colors, I just don't love the price! $55 is way too high for palette, considering MAC is only $35. It's also $5 more than the old palette! It is just so pretty to look at!

Trish McEvoy 'Simplicity - Little Black Card' Collection $58.00
Choose from Matte Bronzer Light or Natural Blush for your cheeks. Brighten eyes by applying Nude Shimmer lid to brow, new Iris Eye Shadow for a wash of color on the lid and Navy Cream Definer to your lash line. Conceal with Long Wear Line Minimizing Concealer, and finish with the Pink Rose Lip Color and the lip-enhancing Serene and Simply Glamorous Lip Glosses.
This double decked palette is so cute and looks easy to slip into your purse for touch ups on-the-go. I've tried the Trish McEvoy concealer before, and it is fab!

Laura Mercier 'Renaissance' Collection $65.00
The set's a classic, romantic look inspired by an equally timeless era. Flawless Skin Day Creme SPF 15, full-size Undercover Pot UC-3, exclusive full-size Pink Champagne Lip Glacé, exclusive Renaissance Eye Color Duo, mini Black Thickening and Building Mascara, double-ended Secret Camouflage Powder Brush and a mini velour puff, all included in a brown cosmetic bag.
Laura Mercier rarely has makeup sets like this that are not gifts with purchase. Usually you have to purchase $100 or more to get a gift not even as good as this. The price may seem high, but you do get a full size concealer and double-ended brush.

Clinique 'Best of Clinique' Beauty Set $45.00
Almost Lipstick in Black Honey, All-new Youth Surge SPF 15 Age Decelerating Moisturizer, All About Eyes, Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser, Dual-ended High Impact Mascara/High Impact Curling Mascara in Black, and a dual-ended Cream Shaper for Eyes, all in a pretty makeup bag.
If you love Clinique, but haven't bought that many items yet, this is a great starter set! If Youth Surge is anything like Moisture Surge, you are sure to love it! The makeup bag is REALLY cute too!

MAC Shape & Perfect Brush Set $49.50
A black-and-white patent-finished twill bag featuring Graphic Garden's signature poppy pattern. Contains a separate zip-up brush holder with five brushes specially selected to help shape and perfect your look: the 168SE, 187SE, 194SE, 212SE and 275SE.
This is the perfect starter set for people new to MAC brushes. (like me!) I have heard that the quality is not the same, but if you love MAC then go for it! The white blush brush and mini stippling brush look sooo nice!
