With the annual Nordstrom Anniversary sale looming just under a month away, coming in at the end of July 2016, it’s so exciting to hear about all of the different deals our favorite brands are cooking up specially for the event. Right now, we’re excited about the exclusive makeup products being offered from Laura Mercier and MAC Cosmetics, because they are simple, essential products for a makeup collection, from a significant and trustworthy industry name, and all for an irresistible sale price. This is one annual sale that just helps make summer better with each passing moment.

Her final two products from her four-piece stint come in this mini pack of one creamy lip parfait and one complementary lip pencil. So pucker up and get ready to finish off your makeup look in style with one (or both!) of these collections.
