I’ll just say it…there is no other time of the year that I freely throw my money
away around than at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I count the days until I get early access. The Beauty Exclusives are always a treat; special sizes, configurations and incentives to stock up on your favorite beauty products.
The Top 10 Nordstrom Beauty Exclusives that have caught my eye include:
1. M·A·C Look in a Box Lip Kit ($29.50) includes a Lipstick, Lipglass and Lip Pencil. I like the ‘Pretty Natural’ kit, but the Fashion Lover Lip Kit is beautiful, too. And don’t forget the Look In a Box Face Kits…they’re excellent values, too!
2. Bobbi Brown ‘Secret to Standout Eyes’ set ($85), which includes a 12-shade eyeshadow palette in a variety of finishes, a Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner and Smokey Eye Mascara. Love this set!
3. M·A·C Look in a Box Basic or Advanced Brush kit ($52.50). I always recommend these special M·A·C brush sets. I love them & other than holiday, this is your only opportunity to pick them up. And they always sell out!
4. Long eyelashes are a must these days, and let’s face it…most of us need a little help. The RevitaLash ADVANCED Duo ($98) is basically a buy one get one free! I can’t pass that up!
5. Antica Farmacista Home Ambience Diffuser ($44); I love ALL the Antica Farmacista home fragrance diffusers and this is the time to stock up. I’ll be ordering Prosecco, Santorini and Acqua! I use them all over my home and they’re divine.
6. I’ve loved the Donna Karan Cashmere Mist fragrance forever and always stock up at Anniversary Sale. This jumbo 32 ounce Body Lotion set with deluxe Eau de Parfum ($105) lasts me all year and is a fantastic buy!
7. LORAC ‘The Skinny Palette’ Black Eyeshadow Palette ($15) – seven gorgeous neutral eyeshadow shades in a slim palette, perfect for travel. Buy 5 of these and put them away for stocking stuffers; trust me.
8. Another Anniversary Sale staple for me is blowpro hairspray. This year, the blowpro set includes blow out serious no-stick hair spray (2) and an after blow™ strong hold finishing spray for $39.50. One of my favorite hairsprays ever.
9. NARS ‘Blame it on NARS’ Cheek Palette ($52); two blushes (Day Dream + New Attitude), plus a highlighter (Satellite of Love) and Bronzer (Casino), make this the ultimate in versatility. If you’re wondering if you really need another blush…yes. Yes, you do!
10. Estée Lauder Gift with $45 minimum purchase. Estée Lauder is offering your choice of 5 different gifts with a $45 purchase! Do yourself a favor and pick up the New Dimension Shape + Fill Expert Serum (see my review here), and then get a fantastic gift with purchase. Each gift has a specific code to use depending on what choice you make.
Those are my Top 10 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Exclusives–honestly, it’s hard to stop at ten! Are you shopping the sale? What’s on your list? Let me know in the comments or hit me up on Twitter! Follow me on Pinterest, where I’ll also be sharing some of my favorite #NSale picks!
