Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Rose

I think that when I walk in to Nordstrom there is someone in a dark air-conditioned room filled with monitors and facial recognition software that detects my face who then contacts a friendly makeup salesperson on the floor of the store and tells them they have detected a target customer who likely won’t leave without buying something if approached and offered to “do their eyes.” This almost happened to me and by almost I mean all of it except the first bit about the room with monitors and facial recognition software communicating with the salesperson. The rest totally happened two weekends ago. I went in to get a new Dior Brow Styler Ultra-Fine Precision Brow Pencil because I had used my previous one up. The lovely woman who helped me asked me if she could do my eye makeup and since I was going to a BBQ later that day and did not have anything on except moisturizer, I said yes. The woman was actually the counter manager for Bobbi Brown and was just helping in the Dior section which was a lovely coincidence because at the time I only owned two Bobbi Brown products: an eyeshadow stick and a brush. After my eyes were done the big question came. “Would you like me to do the rest of  your face?” And of course I said yes! Fast-forward thirty minutes and I am walking out of Nordstrom to meet my husband Ali and in a small Nordstrom bag I leave carrying a new blush, foundation, tinted eye brightener and the eyebrow pencil that took me in to the store in the first place. Yep, this is way more than I planned on getting but I couldn’t say no when I saw how lovely everything looked on. I was also given what I think is the best promo gift (is it really a gift after you’ve spent so much money?) I’ve ever gotten from making a beauty purchase: A travel sized bronzer and brush in a little black bag. I have specific makeup I travel with to maximize space in my suitcase (I try to always travel with just a carry-on suitcase) making the bronzer and brush are welcome additions to my collection. 

I also finally picked up the YSL Top Secrets Natural Action Exfoliator Granule-Free which I had tried before on a past trip to Nordstrom. I had tried to buy this during the last Sephora VIB sale so that I could save some $$$ but couldn’t since it was sold out… But I found it in stock at the Sephora in Chinook Centre! This exfoliator goes on feeling like a gel but it turns into what feels like water after rubbing it on your skin and the results are positively immediate. I suggest getting a sample the next time you are in Sephora so you can experience it for yourself!

Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightener in A95 Light Bisque. This is the best eye brightener I have tried so far. The pink colour instantly brightens my eyes and blends seamlessly.

Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick in 2.25 Cool Sand. This is my first stick concealer and first foundation from Bobbi Brown. The colour match is PERFECT and it’s super easy to apply. This foundation is now a must-have in my makeup drawer at all times. I will never travel with a liquid foundation again!

YSL Top Secrets Natural Action Exfoliator Granule-Free. I think a better name for this would be “YSL Magic Mask” because it really is magical to apply and feel the consistency change.

Dior Brow Styler Ultra-Fine Precision Brow Pencil in 001. The best eyebrow product I’ve ever used. It is pricey but is a perfect colour match for me and it’s easy to apply and provides buildable coverage.
