Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Picks


Hi, friends! I know I’m late to the party with this list because the sale has already started, but better late than never! As you can tell from the title of this post, Nordstrom is currently holding their anniversary sale, which means amazing deals! The sale will be on until August 5th, so there’s still some time to score some great deals! While I don’t intend on buying every single thing on this list (I wish I could!), I’ll definitely be grabbing some of them!

So, without further ado, here are my top beauty picks for this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (in no particular order):

simplehuman – Eight Inch Sensor Mirror with Brightness Control

From $200 to $134

My mom has the same mirror (in silver) and it's so good! The 5x magnifying effect is so good because you can see everything, but also so bad because you can see EVERYTHING. I can easily spend an hour plucking my brows and picking at every imperfection I have with this mirror LOL. Usually $200, this discount is too good to pass up!


drybar – The Most Wanderful Waves Set

$165 ($240 Value)

drybar set

I don't usually talk about hair products on my blog because I normally don't do much to my hair. But, this drybar wand is so raved about in the beauty community, that it makes me really want to try it! And what better time to try it than when it comes in a discounted set with all the extras?!


- The Wrap Party Styling Wand: a styling wand with a reverse-taper, no-slip barrel that creates perfect waves and curls and holds hair in place while styling.
- Triple Sec 3-in-1 Texturizer (4.2 oz.): an airy, dry spray that provides instant texture, volume and body to hair.
- The Money Maker (1.8 oz.): a flexible-hold formula that provides soft, movable hold with easy brushability that is never stiff or sticky.
- Mai Tai Spritzer (1.7 oz.): a natural sea salt spray that creates piecey separation and grit for tousled texture in dry hair.
- Sparkling Soda (1.6 oz.): a superfine mist that creates a lightweight, high-gloss finish, calming frizz and flyaways without weighing down strands.
- Southern Belle Volume-Boosting Shampoo (0.23 oz.): a super-lightweight formula that gently cleanses while providing body and fullness to fine, limp hair.
- Southern Belle Volume-Boosting Conditioner (0.23 oz.): an airy, innovative gel formula that help strengthen and thicken fine, flat, dull hair, leaving it detangled and silky-soft.

MAC – Nude Lip Trio

$36.50 ($54.50 Value) + Free Gift with Purchase

mac nude lip set

MAC makes some of the best lipsticks out there and this nude set would get great everyday use for its wearability. The normal cost for a MAC lipstick is $18.50, so you're pretty much getting the gloss for free.

Anastasia Beverly Hills – Brow Duo

$28 ($43 VALUE) + Free Gift with Purchase

abh brow set

Oh, the Brow Wiz! This pencil is probably one of the most popular pencils in makeup. And for good reason! It's definitely a good pencil. In fact, I turned my mom onto it and now she uses it every day. :) With the Brow Wiz being sold at a normal price of $21, for only $7 more, you get the brow gel included in this set! The brow gel normally retails for $22, so it's a great deal.


- Brow Wiz (0.003 oz.)
- Clear Brow Gel (0.28 oz.)


Laura Mercier – Prime & Perfect Set

$38 ($55 Value) + Free Gift with Purchase


Although each product in this set is travel-sized, it's a great chance to try out some of Laura Mercier's most popular products without having to pay for a full-sized product. And you can't go wrong with the Translucent Setting Powder! That powder is still my go-to setting powder after years of using it.

- Translucent Loose Setting Powder (0.33 oz.)
- Mineral Illuminating Powder in Candlelight (0.19 oz.)

The Mario Badescu Facial Spray seriously is so hyped up right now and I've been really curious about trying it.
