Estee Lauder and Guerlain Gifts~Nordstrom Exclusives

12:14 PM

Nordstrom is having their big anniversary sale and they have a ton of great beauty exclusives.  The Estee Lauder and Guerlain Gifts are just two of them.  The anniversary sale ends today, but I am unsure if the gifts will last longer.

To get the Estee Lauder gift, you have to spend $42.50 or more.  It comes with a 10 pan Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick palette, a 10 pan Pure Color shadow palette, Advanced Night Repair, Sumptuous mascara, Pure Color lipstick in Berry Truffle, Re-Nutriv Age Correcting Creme and a purple snake print cosmetic bag.  I tried the Advanced Night Repair and liked it.  It caused no irritation and made my skin feel really smooth.

I seriously hope that the actual Pure Color shades are more pigmented than the ones in the gift.  It is almost sad.  Since the pans are so small, it is challenging to get the shadow onto a brush.  Each pan is .009 oz or .25g.

Plum Couture, Rose Envy, Hot Kiss, Crystal Pink, Wildly Pink
I was a bit disappointed with the shadow quality, but I guess you cannot expect too much from most gifts with purchases.   But, the Guerlain one was very nice.  Considering you have to spend $200 just to get that, it better be.  As a consolation for getting the items for my mom, I got the gift :)  Although, I am starting to love the eye cream she got and the foundation she got looks nice.  But that is another post.

It comes in a beautiful gold cosmetic bag with the Guerlain emblem and it has some deluxe samples of good items.  One being the Meteorites Perles primer that I have been wanting to try for ages.  Plus it comes in a cute mini version of the full size bottle.  The primer is 0.17oz

Another exciting find is the deluxe sample of the Noir G mascara.  Also something that I have wanted to try.  The sample size is 0.12 oz.  A sample of their famous fragrance, Shalimar, is also included.  I am not a fan of this scent at all.  It is a bit too strong and does not smell like something a 22 year old would wear.
It also comes with 0.24oz of Orchidee Imperiale Cream and 1 oz of Secret de Purete Cleansing Milk.  I have not tried the cleansing milk, but I have tried the cream.  It didn't cause any irritation and made my skin feel smooth.  It did feel a touch greasy, but I may have used too much.  I will keep trying it out and see what it does.  I just hope it doesn't work wonders because it has a ridiculous price tag of $420.00.
The Estee Lauder gift was pretty good and the Guerlain gift was amazing.  Either way, I am always happy to try some new things.
