Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: 9 Beauty Must-Haves


Happy Sunday ya'll! Today I am reviewing some of my favorite beauty picks from the #Nsale! I spent the first day of the sale grabbing staple items like shoes, jeans, jackets, and clothes - I knew these items were going to sell out the quickest, so I shopped for the things I knew I wanted when I walked into the store first. I spent last night shopping the beauty options, and there are some great finds at amazing prices that I have always used on a daily basis! Let's get started.

I get a lot of questions on what makeup I use, especially my eye makeup. This is one of the products I use on a daily basis, and have never found anything better. It's easy on my skin (tons of makeup gives me allergies), it goes on lightly so you don't get that caked on look and it lasts all day. The set comes with two eye colors, an all over face color, and their Marvelous Moxie lipgloss (amaze!). I generally use the "warmth" all over face color, but keep in mind I have pretty dark skin - so the Vanilla Sugar Radiance that comes with the set is a good happy medium for most skin tones. The entire set is only $35, which is incredible! When I buy a single lipgloss after tax it's almost $20 and the all over face color is $21 by itself, so you're getting a $65 value for $35. 

Ya'll, these candles smell amazing! I have these all over my house - the bathrooms, nightstands, coffee tables etc. Don't underestimate the size of the can, those little tins will make your whole house smell wonderful! I buy these year round anyway, but you can't beat the sale price ($15.90) right now. These also make great gifts! Everyone loves a great candle!

I am so excited this is part of the sale! This stuff is like gold! I absolutely love being tan, and being in the sun - but as we all know, it's damaging to our skin. St. Tropez is a life saver when it comes to needing that perfect sunkissed glow and not having time to get a spray tan. My mom actually introduced me to St. Tropez years ago, and I haven't stopped using it since. The kit includes the bronzing mousse, gradual tan shower lotion, and the applicator mit. It's super easy to apply, dries quickly, and lasts forever! This is another great deal at $49 -> $96.50 after the sale. They didn't have it in the store, so I ordered it from Nordstrom online. 

I haven't used T3's dryer before, but I love their curling wand! My hair doesn't hold curl very well, but T3 made a product that left my curls looking great the next day! So, I trust their products and am excited to try the dryer out. T3 also uses ion technology which helps your hair retain moisture, so you should end up with less breakage. Their products are usually pretty pricey, but this particular dryer comes in cheaper than the travel size version at $139, normally $200.

Another product I have never tried, but I heard this stuff is amazing for your hair! The #Nsale is offering a deal including shampoo, conditioner, body oil, a treatment and the bag for $88, normally $132. I'm also looking forward to trying their dry shampoo! 

This diffuser smells so good! This is another product my mom introduced me too, I walked into her guest bathroom and immediately fell in love with the Orange Blossom, Lilac & Jasmine scent. It's a little pricey for a diffuser, even with the sale ($44 normally $66) but they last forever! And if you aren't totally sold on it but still want to try it out, they sell a 3.3 oz version for $26 here - highly recommend!

If you're looking to enhance your skincare routine, now is a great time to do so! The Clarisonic gently cleanses and loosens pores better than your normal face wash would. This device will help you reduce dry, oily or blemished skin and is currently $89, usually $129.

I received this palette for Christmas one year and have used it ever since. I absolutely love the colors in it for a smokey eye. As I mentioned earlier, I get a lot of questions about my eye makeup, and this is a palette I use regularly for an evening look. I use the lighter colors for the inner corners of my eyes, and under eye, and then move down the palette using the middle colors on the middle of my lids, and the darkest browns on the outer corners for a layered/blended look. Not to mention, this little palette lasts me forever! This set also comes with a duel ended eyeliner brush, gel eyeliner, and mascara. It is currently $89 with the sale, a $129 value. 

If you're anything like me, you love a good brow. However, without a little help - my brows are almost blonde, meaning you can barely see them. I've tried numerous different brow products, and this is a winner. The color still looks natural, it stays on all day, and it's really easy to apply. Also, from the reviews online it seems like other users have had great luck with it too! The $36 dollar price tag also can't be beat!

Thanks so much for reading, I appreciate all of you! I'd love to know which beauty products you are purchasing from the Nordstrom sale! Don't forget to check out my review of the shoes, clothes & acessories I purchased here
