Nordstrom Mascara Haul (May)

Buy any 3 mascaras from your favorite brands, and we’ll automatically deduct the cost of the lowest-priced mascara in Checkout; no promo code required.

Lastly, since I spent well over $100 I also qualified for the “bonus” gift which was a Nest Grapefruit Reed Diffuser!
