Nordstrom Beauty Trend Show

Beauty Trend ShowOn Saturday I attended the Beauty Trend Show at Nordstrom Topanga, in Canoga Park, CA. They have this event annually, but this was the first time I was able to actually attend. It was the perfect mini-personal-day because it started early (8am) and ended by 9:30. Then you were able to enjoy the beauty counters at your own pace. I was finished by 11:30. The way it works is you pre-purchase a Nordstrom gift card for $20. You bring that card with you on the day of the event and it serves as your ticket in. Then after the show, you use it to shop for some beauty goodies. I’m only mid-way through my month long travel schedule so it was really helpful to find some new products to take care of my travel-worn skin.  Below is a re-cap of my favorites from the day.

Nordstrom TopangaPurity of Elements{My favorite discovery was Purity of Elements skincare line.  Sheri Poe, founder pictured above, is 62 and 1/2 years old. I guessed 45, right? She is amazing. I had the chance to meet her and sample her products.  I asked her “what is the one product in her line that I should walk away with?” and she said “the Serum! It’s life-changing”}

SmashboxBeauty Trend ShowLuminage{ILuminage highlighted their “anti-aging pillowcase” infused with copper}

PillowcaseShoes{I’m not sure what this line was about because I was too focused on her shoes.  Faux fur sandals- yes please! They’re from Topshop. You can get them at Nordstrom Topanga Salon Shoes}
