The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally here! Early Access for Nordstrom Cardholders started July 15th and will run until July 21st. The sale will be open to the public starting July 22nd and will end August 7th. For a limited time, you can score some really good deals on major markdowns from many popular brands and enjoy the savings in turn. There were many beauty exclusives that caught my attention while browsing the catalog online, so I paid a visit to my local store for Early Access. Like most consumers, I love a great value. I found a few items that fit this description perfectly and today's post will feature the Nordstrom Exclusive MAC Look in a Box Face Kit offerings that I picked up, along with product information and swatches. I have a feeling that these kits will sell out fast, so I would recommend that you order online or head over to your local store for a visit soon.
First, let me start by shamelessly admitting that I was drawn to the MAC Look in a Box Face Kits this year because of the packaging on the lipsticks, which is reminiscent of the MACxGiambattista Valli collection that was out last summer. I have a huge affinity for these colored bullets and though I initially tried to practice self restraint by purchasing only one MAC Look in a Box in the color Sunblessed, I went back for two more. #makeupjunkieproblems.
Let's take a closer look at the offerings available this year for the MAC Look in a Box Face Kits. Official details courtesy of the Nordstrom website.

Worth mentioning is another Nordstrom exclusive offering available which is the Nordstrom C'est Chic' Eyeshadow Palette, $65 (in image above) This well-edited palette by M·A·C is an exclusive combination of beloved and new matte shades featuring soft, sheer neutrals mixed with deep, rich browns. On the first day of early access, the salesperson mentioned that the palette was flying off the shelves. I fortunately picked up the last one available in store, so I would highly recommend you pick it up before it's too late, especially if you love matte eyeshadow finishes.
Each MAC Look in a Box Face Kit is priced at $39.50 with a retail value of $71.50. There are five Face Kits available, a range to suit your makeup style and preference. All products included are FULL size with immense savings of $32 off the retail price. You can check them out or purchase them here.
I hope that you found this post informative and helpful. There are a few other beauty purchases I made that I will feature later in a separate post.
Will you be picking anything up?
