Value: Nordstrom GWP

Nordstrom has some fancy new GWPs with any $50 beauty, fragrance, or men’s grooming purchase. According to their ad, the GWP is worth up to $85. I calculated prices using the largest size of each product available at Nordstrom’s (with the exception of the Smashbox primer, which is cheaper per ounce if you buy the travel size, so I used that price-per-ounce instead) and the teal set was closest, with a calculated value of $73.04 not including the value of the bag itself. The value of the other sets (again, exclusive of the bag itself) were $52.57 for the pink, $44.32 for the lime green, and $23.63 (ouch) for the grey.
