There are two kinds of sales in this world. There’s the “why did I just buy that?” sale, the one where you impulse buy something you don’t really need just because it was a good price, and the “holy sh*t, I just effing scored sale,” the kind that leaves you feeling good about your new purchases. The latter doesn’t come around very often, but when it does, you’ve gotta pounce.
Some of my favorite items from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is at the top of my list for sales not to be missed. Running now through August 7th, The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is honestly one of the best out there, especially for us beauty girls. On top of products across all categories being priced at an incredible value, Nordstrom has lined up an assortment of exclusive beauty products that can’t be found anywhere else during the sale dates.
I look at the sale as a great way to stock up on beauty products I already know I love, but I am always most excited to see what exclusive offerings will be available. You can check out all of the products available here, but I pulled together some of my favorites for you below. Check them out and make sure to shop online or in store before it all sells out!
CLINIQUE CHUBBY LASH, Part of the Clinique “Take the Day Off Set”
I’m a fan of the whole less is more, ‘no makeup’ makeup approach during the day, but I love a bold eye at night or for special occasions. Since I no longer wear lash-extensions, I need a really good mascara and Clinique’s Chubby Lash is one of my favorites. I hate long spidery lashes. I want the hair thick starting at the base and this mascara delivers. It has an oversized volumizing brush that pumps up my lashes without a clump. When it comes time to remove the mascara at bedtime, I love Clinique’s Take the Day Off. It’s one of the most efficient eye makeup removers out there. I love the convenience of having the remover paired with the mascara, and I’m obsessed with the color of the bottle. It looks so pretty in my bathroom.
I feel like I’m always in need of a fresh new brush set and nobody does tools quite like Bobbi Brown. The Bobbi on Trend set is so good because each brush is full size and hand-selected by Bobbi herself along with her team of all star makeup artists. They are literally her favorite brushes. So yeah, these are a must.
BOBBI ON TREND – SMOKEY TOPAZ EYE SET and BOBBI ON TREND – CHEEK SET
Speaking of Bobbi, how good is this Cheek Set? I love the thick travel brush – so minimalist. The multi-tasking trio just happens to be perfect for my trip to Positano! Now I can bronze, pop and highlight along the Almafi coast all day long.
Some items from the MAC LOOK IN A BOX – SUBLESSED NUDE LIP & EYE KIT
MAC has created these really cool “Look in a Box” lip and eye kits. Normally I like one, or maybe two, items in a set, but every single item here is good. I like sunblessed, which is the most natural of the three. It comes with the perfect black mascara, the classic black liquid eye pot, a shadow, and the prettiest pale pink lipstick.
Like I said, these are some of my favorites but there are so many other killer items. Check of the beauty exclusives available from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale here or pop in to a Nordstrom near you. Remember, you’ve only got until August 7th so hurry!
Happy shopping loves.
