Two Trish Exclusives from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

My overall summary of the 2011 Nordstrom Anniversary sale... a big let down. However, I was wooed by two of Trish McEvoy's exclusive sets for this annual Nordstrom event. I've been enjoying playing with all of the combinations. The good news is that these beauties are still available! If you are interested, pick them up now — at your local counter or online — before they go bye-bye. And if you've never tried Trish's products, these sets are great entry points to her line.

Portable Beauty Romance Set (Nordstrom Exclusive — a $150 value), $75: I had every intention to skip purchasing this set. I've bought Trish's portable, credit-card sized palettes in the past and I just don't use them. Ideally, they're perfect for your purse or small travel bag, but I've scaled my purse size way down and I don't typically touch up my makeup mid-day. However, I justified buying this set for the new bronzer alone. It's a beautiful golden hue that is not orange or dark brown. This shade is perfect for us pale face ladies! Here is a run-down of all the items included in the set:
  • Beauty Emergency Card — four universally flattering eye colors, plus the perfect all-the-time bronzer. Colors include eyeshadows in Shell, Romance and Antique Rose, Eye Definer in Deep Aubergine and new Bronzer in Golden.
  • Instant Eye Lift under-eye brightener and line filler (deluxe travel size, 0.025 oz.).
  • Beauty Booster Lip Gloss SPF 15 in Sexy Petal, (deluxe travel size, 0.2 oz.).
  • Dual-Ended Eye Brush featuring two of Trish's eye-enhancing brushes on opposing ends: Brush 50 Angled Eye Lining and Brush 23 Angled Crease Contour.
  • Brush 48 Blending, the perfect face-color application and blending brush.
  • Cute red-bow, portable beauty case!
(FYI..The brushes are NOT full size. They are smaller versions of Trish's iconic — and my favorite — brushes. But they are still high quality and very usable. They should not be overlooked for their size.)

Timeless Beauty Makeup Planner (Nordstrom Exclusive, $295 value), $125: This 16-piece set is probably one of my all-time Trish favorites to date! There are so many versatile products included, plus you get the petite-sized red planner with the darling bow! The planner itself is the ideal size for travel. I used a similar one for my trip to France and Belgium last spring and it held ALL of my beauty items for 17 days. (See past review.) I've digressed...bottom line, BUY THE PLANNER!

In addition to the red planner, you'll also get:
  • Petite Refillable Makeup Page containing eyeshadows in French Vanilla and Soft Grey, blush in Glow, Medium Matte Bronzer and Translucent Finishing Powder.
  • Eye Base Essentials in Bare (deluxe travel size, 0.025 oz.).
  • Mini Classic Eye Pencil in Black.
  • Mini High Volume Mascara in Black (0.1 oz.).
  • Lip Color SPF 15 in Mulberry. (It's a very sheer red/berry shade. Don't let the photo above fool you.)
  • Brush 62 Fan Brush.
  • Medium Refillable Double-Decker Compact containing Even Skin Portable Foundation in Shades 2 and new 3.5 with professional sponge applicator.
