Nordies is NOT selling makeup for a dollar

by Bionic Beauty on 18.Nov.2008 · 8 comments

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.

elf makeup has always been one dollar

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?

There are so many bogus emails floating around! I have a firm policy of not forwarding any forwards I get. Thank you so much for posting this warning, and helping to stop the forwarded spam- life’s too short!

Ha, what a ridiculous hoax! Unfortunately, there are just too many people out there who believe everything they read or hear. 😉 Thanks for kicking this to the curb. You sure are one Bionic Myth Buster!!
