As many of you know, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (#NSale) is in full swing for Nordstrom cardholders, but it opens to everyone on FRIDAY (7/22), so although I rounded up my personal favorites in fashion and beauty last week, I wanted to go in-depth on my ten favorite beauty exclusives available during the sale (because this is a beauty blog, after all).
Even if you don’t have a Nordstrom card, you can create an account and add your favorite items to a ‘wish list’ that way when the sale goes live for everyone, you can add all your wish list items to your shopping cart and check out quickly before they sell out!
NARS “Nordstrom’s Best” Cheek Palette | $65 ($124 value)
NARS make some of the best cheek products, so having them all in one convenient palette at that price makes it a steal.
LANCOME BiFacil Eye Makeup Remover Duo | $39 ($54 value)*
This is my all-time favorite [holy grail status] makeup remover and you’re getting a large size and a small size for the price of the larger size!
SMASHBOX Photo Bombshell | $54 ($111 value)
You don’t need anything else in this kit except a foundation and you’re totally set with a full face of makeup! Three eyeshadows (Smashbox make some of the softest/best blending shades out there), three cheek colors, mascara, eyeliner and lipstick.
T3 Featherweight Hair Dryer | $139 ($200 value)
This is the mother of all blowdryers for us thick-haired girls that hate taking hours to dry our hair and fry it. T3 promises a voluminous, quick blow out (um… what my dreams are made of).
BEAUTYBLENDER Set | $35 ($56 value)
One beautyblender will set you back $20, so the fact that you’re getting TWO + their cleanser (which ensures you’re removing any leftover makeup in the sponge… quite a task) is obviously a great deal at $35.
STILA Stay-All-Day Set | $20 ($34 value)
Another all-time, multi monthly favorite holy grail for me, the Stila Liquid Liner alone runs $20… so the fact that you get a mini neutral colored liquid lipstick is just a bonus.
LORAC Eye and Cheek | $18 ($30 value)*
This is the deal of the day here! $18 PLUS a gift with purchase!? Lorac is known for their buttery eyeshadows, but in addition to those six eye shades, you get three cheek shades (highlighter/blush).
ST TROPEZ Self Tan Set | $49 ($96 value)
If you’re a tanning newb, this is a great set to pick up for the price. I love using a tanning mit and recommend it with all of my self tanning tips because it eliminates that ‘self tan hand’ problem. This kit has a subtle, gradual tan as well as, a super-fast 1 hour express deeper tan. This may be my personal favorite deal.
LANCER Summer Glow Set | $170 ($294 value)*
A pricey set indeed – Dr Lancer is the Kardashian’s dermatologist – so you can understand his price tags now. However, I tried a sample of his 3-step skin care about a year ago (cleanser, exfoliator, moisturizer) and it was UBER nice and luxe …and passed the sensitive-skin Steffanie test 😉 If you’re looking to splurge or even pick up an early holiday gift for someone… this is a great time and great item.
