Select Laura Mercier Items Now Up to 60% Off

If you haven't been able to find all of the various Laura Mercier deals that have been spotted at Nordstrom Rack lately, I've got great news for you!

Laura Mercier Artist's Palette for Eyes & Cheeks
(retail: $48; now $25)

There are some great deals on the Laura Mercier site right now, including the palette you see above for $25. Shipping is $5.95 (see update below). Click here to view all sale items, but please note that the prices aren't visible until you click the actual listing. If you want to see some swatches of the Artist's Palette, check out Temptalia's post here.

They also have the Verbena Infusion set for $40 (same price as Nordstrom Rack) and if you caught my post about that one, you know it regularly retailed for $80 during the holidays. You can get a closer look at this set in my post HERE. I'm in love with it and it's such a great value considering that the perfume alone retails for $55 individually.

UPDATE: According to Retailmenot, you apparently get free ground shipping and 3 free samples on orders $50+, although I don't see this mentioned on the Laura Mercier site. Retailmenot has some other free shipping offers HERE, so give them a whirl and see if they work!

Thanks so much to reader Gina (@wingsofbeauti on Instagram) for the great tip about this sale!

Spotted: Wet n Wild Summer 2015 Limited Edition California Dreaming Collection (Matte Bronzers, Nail Polishes and More)

It's that time again, Wet n Wild fans! The Summer LE collection has landed at Walgreens, and I've got tons of great pics to share with you thanks to reader Annie of Rosy Lipped Beauty Blog and reader Regina on Facebook. Let's take a look!

PLEASE NOTE: Starting today, 4/26, and running through 5/2, Wet n Wild is on sale at Walgreens (don't quote me on that; the sale could be longer but I know it's at LEAST for a week). Products with a regular retail price of $2.99 and above are $1 off. In other words, if a product is normally $2.99, you'll pay $1.99. If a product is normally $4.99, you'll pay $3.99, and so on.

 What foundation are you reaching for the most right now? 

G's answer: Hard Candy Glamoflauge Foundation and Jordana Complete Cover 2-in-1 Concealer & Foundation, both of which I'll be reviewing here on the blog very soon (I have a TON of reviews coming up this week, so please stay tuned!).

The Lipstick League Links of the Week

Phyrra - Lost on where to start with HAC? I’ve got you covered with the Pale Girl's Guide to Highlighting & Contouring! Included are recommendations for light to medium skintones too!

we heart this - Can you get fab brows under 5 bucks? Answer: You can with THIS!

Beautygeeks - takes a short trip down spray antiperspirant memory lane in this review of Dove Dry Spray.

Clumps of Mascara - is in loooove with a lipstick. Honestly, it could very well be one of the best lipsticks I’ve tried all year.

Target Spring 2015 Beauty Box: The Contents

As with all of the Target Beauty Boxes (and formerly the Target Beauty Bags, if you've been with me since the beginning!), I like to show you the contents after I receive my purchase. Not only do I like to do this as a visual record, for reference, but I also like to do it so that those who may have missed out might get a better idea of what these boxes have to offer the next time they come around.

NOTE: This box is no longer available for purchase on the Target website. I posted about it as soon as I found it was available on April 13th, and it proceeded to sell out later that afternoon (these always go quickly). I apologize if you missed it, but I post about these as quickly as I can when they go live (thanks to tips from YOU!), so if you don't follow me on social media (see the social media link bar at the top of this blog), it may be something you might want to consider so that you'll know exactly when my posts go up in the future. Target offers these boxes once each spring and once each fall.

Target Spring 2015 Beauty Box
(retail: $5 + free shipping via the Target website)

So let's take a look!

I thought it might help to put everything all in one post, so first let's recap what I've already covered...
