Spotted at Nordstrom Rack: theBalm and Illamasqua

If you caught my previous posts about all of the great makeup sightings at Nordstrom Rack over the last several months (Too Faced, LORAC, Urban Decay, Stila, Laura Mercier, etc. etc.), then you know that the prices are absolutely unbelievable on some of these products. If you live anywhere near a Nordstrom Rack and you haven't popped in lately, you really should!

For a while now, I've been hoping that we'd eventually see theBalm pop up at Nordstrom Rack (Nordstrom owns HauteLook so it's not a stretch to imagine theBalm popping up at The Rack since their products often go on sale at HauteLook). And guess what? It's happening! Many thanks to reader @sylviaa.x3 on Instagram for these pics of some products she just spotted at her local Nordstrom Rack this week:

Keep reading for more info and sightings...

As you probably know, Instain Blushes retail for $22 on theBalm's website. You can often find them for 50% off on HauteLook, etc. and a few times a year theBalm runs some great 50% off sitewide sales. But $4.97? I've never seen them this low! I adore these blushes (I own three, all of which I bought on sale) and I wouldn't hesitate for a second to purchase more...especially at this price. They are so pigmented and easy to blend, and they last all day even on my oily skin.

And here's another crazy theBalm sighting at Nordstrom Rack: reader @cgaraymua.vm on Instagram just let me know that she recently found MaryLou Manizer for $6 at her location! What? I know...

Illamasqua Nail Varnishes at Nordstrom Rack
(retail: $17, Nordstrom Rack price: $6.97)

@sylviaa.x3 also spotted Illamasqua nail polishes at her Nordstrom Rack and kindly shared this pic. Illamasqua regularly goes on sale at HauteLook but this is the first time I've heard about any of their products popping up in-store at Nordstrom Rack!

Again, if you live anywhere near a Nordstrom Rack and you have never thought to check out their cosmetics department, you most definitely should. And don't forget to look for those Too Faced Soul Mates Blushing Bronzers for $11.97 while you're there!

Thanks so much, @sylviaa.x3, for the great pics. I truly appreciate it!


  1. WOW, that's the lowest price I've ever seen for those Instain Blushes too! I already have a few when they were on sale. But I gotta check out my local store.

    Thanks for the info! :)

  2. ooooo the balm? need to check my on friday )

  3. Man, so many things go on Hautelook before ending up at Nordstrom Rack for even cheaper. I should just wait from now on.

  4. I've been wanting to try the InStain blushes for almost 2 years now! Thanks for the info - you are the bomb-enabler :)
