Have you ever noticed that cosmetics rarely (if ever) go on sale? Get ready for Mascara Madness … it’s a huge deal in the beauty world and happens at Nordstrom every year. This is the one sale where customers can buy 2 mascaras and get one for FREE. The best part is that you can mix and match mascaras, which allows you to try different brands or stock up on your favorites!
This year’s event will be on May 24th and they have already begun to take pre-orders at the store. I made mine today!
If you have never attended this event here’s how it works. Nordstrom allows its shoppers to purchase (in store and online) two mascaras and then receive a third mascara for free. Just remember the lowest priced mascara will be the freebie so keep that in mind while shopping. When you pre-order for the promotion, you are guaranteed your mascaras and you will not be billed for them until a day or two before the event. If you decide to wait and make a purchase on the day of the event, quantities will be limited, of course, and your favorite brand might already be sold out. The same applies for making a purchase online as well. Also, online purchases will only apply to select brands, while in-store and pre-orders will apply to all cosmetic brands.
My all time favorite mascara is Diorshow by Christian Dior. They have several varieties to choose from but I love a ‘big show’ mascara with lots of volume and this one is it for me. It has been a winner of Allure magazine’s ‘Best of Beauty Reader’s Choice’ award for Best Department Mascara for several years, too. The end result is my lashes are lengthened, thickened and curved to the ‘nth’ degree. For a little ‘pop’ after you line your eye, use the mascara of choice, then go back and add a little more liner and some more mascara. You can get some dynamic results that look great for evening or perhaps it’s that special lunch date? Wink! Wink!
….And a little FYI: When left unopened mascaras have a shelf life of 2 years!
