If there’s one thing I miss about not working from home – other than, say, seeing human beings on a daily basis – it’s the heartwarming morning routine. A hint of blush, a touch of eye shadow, a lipstick that doesn’t smudge on my face or cause pimples under my mask. These days I don’t wear makeup at all unless I’m trying to impress my Zoom audience or take a selfie. And for the most part, I don’t mind! It saves me from having to diligently wash my face every day, and my skin thanks me for giving it a break.
So it would take something pretty big – something major – for me to put on makeup again. In this case, that big event would be the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale which bundled five full-size Charlotte Tilbury products into one amazing, low-cost package. In addition to the classic and iconic Pillow Talk lipstick, this set also includes a berry-toned eyeliner, the best mascara for dramatic lashes, a liquid highlighter stick, and a 12-shade eyeshadow palette. Overall, these products should go out at $ 200 + in regular time. However, when on sale, they are only $ 135. I call it a theft.
If you’re not emotionally ready to do your makeup again, I highly recommend that you gift this set to a dear friend, perhaps like yours. Not sure you need all five products? Pick your favorite and pass the rest on to your friend, and pretend you bought them for him at full price. They will never know. For me, Charlotte Tilbury products encourage me to live out my 70s British rocker fantasies. We’re talking about a brand founder who sleeps in eyeliner to perfect her grunge and lived-in look, after all.
