Nordstrom Anniversary Sale- Beauty Picks!

nordstrom anniversary sale

Besides the clothing, shoes and accessories you can’t beat some of the beauty buys during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I use this time to stock up on my favorite products or try out some new goodies! Here are some of my favorite things from the sale:

Hourglass Blush Palette ($65) Hourglass makes some of the most beautiful highlighting products. These blushes are no exception. This palette will last you for sooooo long too. You won’t have to buy blush for a VERY long time!

Nuface Toning Kit ($217- original price $325)
I have had this kit in my bathroom closet for a while now and haven’t tried it yet but I have heard amazing reviews on how it tones and tightens your skin! I am all for a more youthful appearance!

Donna Karan Deodorant 3-pack ($65- original price $81) I realize this is a major splurge for deodorant but once you try it, you get the hype. This is my favorite deodorant I have ever used. I have actually been using it on and off for about 5 years now!

Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick Set ($60- original price $90) You all probably know by now that I am a big fan of all CT makeup! Their lipstick is my favorite brand of lipstick on the market. The colors are the prettiest and the formulation is the best. You get their famous ‘pillow talk’ liner and two lipsticks in this set!

T3 Micro Cura Hairdryer ($134- Original price $200) Hands down the best hair dryer! It’s quiet and efficient and pretty to look at on your counter! I actually prefer it over my Dyson one (please don’t tell my husband!)

Anastasia Brow Duo ($28- Original price $43) This is a great deal. I use both of these products every morning! The brow wiz stays put all day, no fading or flaking off. The brow gel keeps all your brow hairs in place. Your brows will look the same at 8p as they did at 8a when you first put these on!

Sara Happ Coconut Set ($32- Original price $46) I have said it before but this lip scrub is so good, you will want to eat it! It leaves your lips so soft as well. I exfoliate with this 2-3 times a week.

Cartier Perfume Set ($124- Original price $185) This is my signature scent and has been for years! I even keep a spare bottle in my car for a little refresher. It’s light and crisp and clean and soft- that is the only way I can describe the scent.

Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Lotion ($52- Original price $75) This is one of those products you stock up on. It’s the best body lotion out there. I have been using it since I was in college. Trust me on this one! This bottle will last you a very long time.

Here are some other beauty picks from the sale I am loving or wanting to try-

Favorite Jeans Ever- Wit and Wisdom/Under $50/5 Styles/5 Outfits!

If you have been following me since last year’s Anniversary sale, you probably remember my obsession with Wit and Wisdom jeans. They are life-changing! YUP, for real. The Wit + Wisdom Ab-solution jeans, specifically. They have a hidden elastic waist and are the comfiest (and most flattering) jeans you will ever wear. They were my TOP Nordstrom Anniversary item last year and I have a feeling they will be again this year. I think word is spreading how amazing these jeans are. If you haven’t tried them, now is the time to grab a pair or two while they are deeply discounted! Prices will go back up ….!

 

Here are my top 5 pairs from the sale this year:

wit and wisdom

Wit + Wisdom Ab-Solution Skinny Jean / Pink Tunic Sweater– wearing an xs / White Studded Loafers– wearing my regular size 8 / Crossbody Bag

Price: $44 (regular price $68)

Color: In-Indigo

Size: 0 Regular

Elastic Waist: Yes

These are the perfect dark denim skinny jeans. Very minimal whiskering and fading. There is also no distressing to them at all which is a nice change for some of us!

 

wit and wisdom

Wit + Wisdom Button Fly Skinny Jeans / Thermal Henley Top– sized up to a small for a looser fit / Wedge Sneaker– fit is true to size.

Price: $51 (Regular price $78)

Color: Blue

Size: 0 Regular

Elastic Waist: No

These jeans really surprised me! I didn’t expect to love them as much as I do or have them be as stretchy or comfortable. I like how they look slightly cuffed too. Perfect to pair with booties!

 

wit and wisdom

Wit + Wisdom Button Fly Ankle Skinny Jeans / Stripe Tee– only $11 & wearing an xs / Fuzzy Cardigan– mine is last years style, linked this years! / Black Ankle Booties– true to size!

Price: $51 (Regular price $78)

Color: Black

Size: 0 Regular

Elastic Waist: No

I really love the button fly style so it was an obvious choice to grab the black as well!

 

wit and wisdom

Wit + Wisdom Ab-Solution Stretch Ankle Skinny Jeans / Button Henley-wearing an xs but I would say it runs a bit big / Leopard Mules– wearing my regular size 8 / Crossbody Bag

Price: $44 (Regular price $68)

Color: Black

Size: 0 Regular

Elastic Waist: Yes

These are basically the most perfect pair of black jeans ever! The elastic waist makes them almost like leggings but they are still jeans- best of both worlds!

 

wit and wisdom
Wit + Wisdom Ab-solution Skinny Jeans / Striped Tee-sized down one size to an XXS, only $15/ Barefoot Dreams Cardigan– so soft, wearing xs/s / Tan Slingback Flats-wearing my regular size 8 / Crossbody Bag

Price: $44 (Regular price $68)

Color: Blue

Size: 0 Regular

Elastic Waist: Yes

I saved the best for last! These ones are my favorite from the sale! I love the lighter wash the best. There’s more whiskering on these ones as well.

BP Sweater

This is just a super easy, super affordable soft sweater. I was initially drawn to the color and then when I felt it I was sold. It’s so soft and can easily be dressed up or down.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – Part One: My Favorite Outfits!

Finally- the day you have all been so patiently waiting for…the Nordstrom Anniversary Public Access Sale!
I have been shopping and posting the sale for a week now and thank goodness for restocks! So many of my favorite pieces have been so popular and selling out like crazy. My take home message here is, buy it now and figure it out later. The popular items are going to sell out again super fast and probably won’t get restocked again. So if you like it, buy it!

Pink Circle Cardigan
Sale Price: $49
After Sale: $75

Basic V Neck Tees
