Nordstrom's Cosmetic Trend Show 2012


I attended Nordstrom's Cosmetic Trend Show two weeks ago. I found out about the show when I went to the MAC counter in Nordstrom's. The show featured the new spring trends (coral, glowing skin, etc.). It was my first time going and we received a coral tote bag with a few samples. I was kind of bummed that we didn't get more samples. Inside were cards that we were supposed to bring to the counter to get free samples, but I was too lazy lol. We also got free Kara's Cupcakes! 

All in all, it was okay. The presenters were pretty much trying to sell us their products. The only product I was interested in was Smashbox's BB cream. I went to the counter to test it out and they have a good range of colors. The only problem was that it's 1oz. for $39. Yeah, not going to spend $39 on a tiny BB cream when I can get a bigger size for cheaper and with more skincare benefits.

Here are the samples I received:


I'm happy I did go to the Laura Mercier counter to grab this:


I can't wait to try this out! It leaves a lovely sheen.
