Post-Holiday Treats: New & Noteworthy Products & Sets at Nordstrom (Free Shipping & Samples)

Were you a fan of the NBC television show Parks & Recreation? If so, then you probably still use the term "treat yo self" as much as I do. And if you're in a post-holiday #treatyoself kind of mood, I have just the thing for you. I've partnered with Nordstrom to bring you some post-holiday beauty shopping ideas (selected by me), so let's jump right in!

As always, all orders ship free on the Nordstrom website, and you get your choice of three free samples from this page with all beauty orders (as of the time of publication, there are some nice options including a Bobbi Brown mascara sample and a MAC Prep and + Prime sample).

This isn't a value set and it's pricey for an eyeliner pen, but have you seen this thing? I HAD to mention it. Do you remember those old school pens that had four or five different colors that you could select and change? Well this is the makeup equivalent! How cool is this? You get three eyeliner colors (one can double as a brow pencil) and one lip liner all in one pen. Genius, right?

This set is new to the Nordstrom site and has a value of $64. You get a deluxe Gilded Honey highlighter (retail value: $18) plus a full-size Drama Lash Mascara (retail: $24) and a full-size Eye Calligraphy Liquid Eyeliner (retail: $22). That's a great value for $18 since it's like you're getting a full-size mascara and liner for free.

Speaking of great Laura Geller deals, Nordstrom also has a new super-size Spackle now available for $30. This tube is 3.2 oz., which is crazy because a regular full-size tube retails for $32 for 2 oz. So you're getting more and paying less.

This set is not new, but it's new to Nordstrom. I think it's a great value at $25 for six travel-size masks (0.47 oz. each, which is enough product for a few uses per tube; some of you have told me that you've gotten up to five uses from one tube). Plus with free shipping and samples, I just wanted to be sure you knew that this was now at Nordstrom.

If you're a fan of UK blogger Zoella (Zoe Sugg), then you may like to know that you can now easily get her hand cream here in the US (I believe that Nordstrom is currently the only US-based retailer to carry it). You know I'm a hand cream junkie, so I've read quite a few UK blogger reviews about this one and they've all been quite positive. Apparently the scent of this hand cream is "fresh floral" and it sinks in quickly, even though it's a thick cream. And you have to love that rose gold packaging, right? Well if you're a rose-gold fanatic like me, you probably do.

If Santa didn't bring this to you over the holidays, you may be happy to know that it is newly listed on the Nordstrom website (it's sold out on the L'Occitane website). You get a whopping 24 travel size products here, which breaks down to just $2.29 per item. 

Smashbox Be Legendary Matte Lipstick Mini Trio - $22
I am hearing nothing but raves about this matte lipstick formula from Smashbox. I keep hearing that the colors are so vibrant and the formula sits so comfortably on the lips (a must for matte lipsticks, right?). So I just wanted to let you know that this little trio is now at Nordstrom. You get three minis here (a matte red, matte coral and matte fuchsia) and I love the value in this set. Each mini is 0.08 oz., which adds up to 0.24 oz total for $22. Just one full-size Smashbox Be Legendary Matte Lipstick retails for $21 for 0.1 oz. So you're getting more than double the amount of product here, for about the same price. Plus you get to try three shades.

MAC Look in A Box (multiple sets) - $62.50 each ($113 value)
And last but not least, the new Nordstrom-exclusive Look In a Box sets are here! If you're unfamiliar with these sets, they contain all full-size products for $62.50 each, and the retail value of each box is $113. Pictured above is the Be Sweet & Dreamy Look In a Box but there are four sets total:

  1. I am a sucker for hand creams and mini lipsticks. Thanks for this G! I see some other things in the Nordstrom site as well.

    1. You're so welcome! And ditto, Tamiko. Those are also two of my weaknesses! Lol. ;)

  2. Maybe the L'Occitane advent calendar is going in and out of stock, because it is currently gone. There is this cool Glamglow set for $42 though, it has an ounce of SUPERMUD and a quarter-ounce of YOUTHMUD, GRAVITYMUD, THIRSTYMUD, FLASHMUD, and POWERMUD

    1. Aaah, you may be right. So sorry about that. I'll keep the listing here in case it goes back in stock (again). And thanks for the link--I saw that set yesterday and it definitely caught my eye! Did you order one? :)

    2. no, i'm trying to restrain myself, my little home office/boudoir is overflowing, and hubby has been making comments like "it looks so nice in here, so full of stuff, yet not overdone," and adapting Christopher Marlowe at me ("Was this the face that launch'd a thousand shipments?")

      that supermud stuff is like magic though and I dread running out of it.

  3. That Clains pen liner looks neat!

  4. Hi, this is just to let you know that Ulta has a hot sale going on today only (online only) for Platinum members: all Tarte blushes are 50% off!
