Ok everyone, I’m stepping in with a giant Bamboozle that’s going around via email lately. Personally, I’ve gotten more than 5 copies of this email “Nordstrom is selling makeup for $1”. Yeah. Right. And I have a sea-front home in St. Louis to sell you too.
Here’s the body of the email…
Nordstrom is changing the logo on their makeup, so they’re selling everything in this line for $1!!! The make-up line e.l.f. (eyes-lips-face) has been bought out by Nordstrom and will be re-packaged with the Nordstrom name on it. They are getting rid of all the make-up in ELF packaging. They are selling everything for $1. You do have to pay shipping. They have everything – powder, mascara, lipstick, a mineral line (100% natural), brushes & cases, nail polish, lotions, you name it – it’s there.
This is so false it’s not even funny. I’m not sure how it got started, but it’s not true. Nordstrom has not bought e.l.f. (eyes.lips.face) Cosmetics; and e.l.f. has ALWAYS sold their makeup for a buck (as my long-time Bionic Beauties know). So, if you get this email, please kindly inform the person who sent it to you that it’s only half-truths. (Better yet, point ’em to this article.) We need to nip this kind of email train in-the-bud.
Any questions on the email, please feel free to post below and I promise to do me best in answering. Have *you* received this email yet?
