If you’re a make up junkie like myself and was part of the craze this past weekend with the Sephora VIB Sale, then you are aware of the hunt taking place to find Bobbi Brown’s LE Highlight Powder in Bronze Glow from the Holiday Collection 2014. When I tell you this weekend I was mad as all get out, I was UPSET! So there were many items that were sold out on Sephora’s site during the sale, but I was fortunate enough to always find what I wanted on the company’s site or another retailer. Not the Bobbi Brown Highlighter Powder, though. I surfed Bobbi Brown’s website and Twitter, only to find out that they are sold out and do NOT plan on restocking. Oh hunny, that’s a whole other rant that I’ll save for later. Then I went to Macy’s, sold out. I went to Bloomingdale’s, sold out. Then I went to Nordstrom’s, SOLD OUT. Seriously, how on earth is this possible?!! Argghhhhh.
It wasn’t until today (Nov. 12th), that I thought about browsing Ebay. And when I saw people selling it for $70 when the retail price is $45, I gave up. BUT THEN… I said, “Let’s do a google search to see what pops up in the shopping section.” And, success!!! I found three, yes THREE stores that I’m not sure why I didn’t even think of. Why on earth didn’t I think of these high end retail stores?!
I guess since I don’t frequent the actual brick and mortar stores, it didn’t cross my mind to check out the online store. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the two stores that still have some in stock as of now (Nov. 12th 11:12pm).
Saks Fifth Avenue – This is where I placed my order and made sure to put a rush on it. You can also apply the shipping code HOLIDAY, to get a discount on shipping. That code was helpful because I wanted to choose the rush delivery. Woo hoo for savings! Plus I used my ebates so even more savings. 😉
Neiman Marcus – Shockingly, I checked their site after placing the order and they still have Bronze Glow in stock. What?! Give them a try if Saks is sold out.
Ebay – If all else fails, you can always go to Ebay. I was desperate and was willing to pay $70 on the powder. Yea, I really wanted this product.
So that’s it. I made sure to hyperlink to the actual product pages for your convenience. Be sure you triple check that the product in your cart is the actual color Bronze Glow. I remember another retail site having the Bronze Glow picture up but the drop down menu selection was for Pink Glow. So if you have to chat with customer service for them to double check the product number, please do that! I did! Good luck!
Oh and be sure to check out my channel for the beauty haul. I wish Sephora would hurry up and send my darn items. Good grief!!
UPDATE (11/18/14): It looks like it sold out everywhere BUT the Shimmer Brick in Copper Diamond looks like it’s very close to what you get in this limited edition item. It’s actually on my list to purchase next. Good thing the Shimmer Brick in Copper Diamond is permanent.
