When I was at the Toronto Eaton Centre just the other day, the massive #NORDSTROMTO banners heralding the September 16th opening of the first Ontario location got me thinking: when it comes to shopping at or, which one wins for you? If you live in the US, do you have a preference between the two?

And if you're in Canada, do you ever shop via Do you usually hit the site for this anniversary sale?

If you haven't yet shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, here's a round-up of still-available beauty exclusives that caught my eye:

NARS Nordstrom's Best Cheek Palette$65 USd ($124 value) I will always be drawn to a cheek palette even though chances are I'll dab my face with whatever lip colour I'm using because I'm in the back of an Uber doing my makeup as usual. *sigh*

MAC Look in a Box – Girl Band Glam Purple Lip & Eye Kit, $39.50 USd ($71.50 value) If you don't already own MAC Heroine lipstick, now's your chance to scoop it up along with a cream liner, mascara and zippered case, all at a great price.

NARS Survival Kit I, $59 USd ($116 value) I might never finish an eyeshadow palette, but I'd like to give this eye-cheek-lip set a go. What is it about a pretty NARS face kit that always gives me #grabbyhands? Maybe it's the lovely combination of shades and the graphic, Mondrian-esque compact layout?

NARS Survival Kit II, $59 USd ($116 Value) Because you know I can't choose between the two. And yeah, I know it's yet another NARS thing. *sigh*

Charlotte Tilbury Mesmerizing Smokey Eye' Colour Morphing Eyeshadow Pencil Duo & Sharpener, $49 USd ($61 Value) My favourite eye pencil right now is a Charlotte Tilbury Mesmerizing Smokey Eye Colour Morphing Eyeshadow Pencil in Mesmerising Mink. Love the soft shimmer, the creamy application and the long wear. I need more shades!

Smashbox Photo Bombshell 5-Piece Color Collection, $54 USd ($111 Value) Such a great face set of any-day basics. Very pretty, and especially striking thanks to that Donald-Drawbertson blush-trio compact lid.

Clarisonic Mia Fit Cleansing System, $153 (after sale, $219) If you don't already have a Clarisonic, this handy little unit is the reason to change your status. Trust. (Geeky details about how this Mia Fit/Alpha Fit shape happened here.)

You might also like to check out the Nordstrom Gifts With Purchase section – sometimes that makes a what's-in-my-cart difference for me. *grin*
