Vote in the First-Ever Nordstrom Beauty Awards!

My home away from home Nordstrom is holding their first ever beauty awards and you can vote on your favorite cosmetics, skincare and fragrances. By voting you’ll be entered to win all of the winning products so you’d have an entire beauty wardrobe ready for fall. Only three lucky winners will be chosen at random. Voting ends Monday at 1pm EST so go vote quickly!

Also, Nordstrom is having a gift with purchase from now until the 14th.  Customers will receive, while supplies last, a cosmetics bag with 12 deluxe samples (worth $90) if they spend $125 on any cosmetics or fragrance purchase. The chic bag includes products from Laura Mercier, Trish McEvoy, Lancôme, Kate Somerville, Philosophy and more. I don’t know about you but I’m always a sucker for the bags Nordstrom puts out with GWPs and trend shows. I have a lot of them in my closet!
