Nordstrom 2018 Beauty Anniversary Sale Picks

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is one of my all time favorite sales. I’ve been a reward member for almost fifteen years. I used to be very into their fashion sales but I tend to now focus on the beauty event more so than the fashion. Early access starts on July 12th for reward members. I only have a mod card now (the debit card). If you don’t want a credit card but want the reward benefits grab a mod debit card. It’s free. Earn extra points for reward dollars during the sale.

Tom Ford Bronze Iris Bronze Lip & Eye Set

My most wanted item from the Anniversary sale this year is this Tom Ford set. An Eye Quad featuring four coordinated eyeshadows in sparkling to matte finish designed to create soft, bold, iconic Tom Ford eyes, presented with two gorgeous Lip Colors. It looks like the same formula as the Nude Dip & Honeymoon quads. I love that it looks warmer than Nude Dip but more neutral than Honeymoon. The set contains Eye Quad in Iris Bronze, Deluxe sample Lip Color in Spiced Honey & Deluxe sample Lip Color in Casablanca.

Charlotte Tilbury Pretty Glowing Skin Palette

I love Charlotte Tilbury’s palettes so a multi-tasking palette with a powder, contour, blush and glow for a head-turning complexion sounds great. It contains: Airbrush Powder #2 (a warm powder with golden undertones and a soft velvety texture), Blush in Pretty (a youthful rosy flush to illuminate any skin type), Glow (top left) (a soft champagne to highlight and illuminate), Bronze and Contour (a neutral cocoa to tone, slim, sculpt and define), Summer Blush (a bright coral with a soft sheen) & Glow (bottom right) (opalescent with golden/pink undertone to layer and highlight).

Charlotte Tilbury The Pretty Pink Lipstick Set

I adore Charlotte Tilbury nude lipsticks. I love both the KISSING and Matte Revolution formulas. This set has the Lip Cheat Re-Size & Re-Shape Lip Liner in best-selling Pillow Talk, Matte Revolution Lipstick in Nordstrom-exclusive Rose Kiss (soft, warm merlot with a natural matte finish) & K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in Nordstrom-exclusive Blushing Dream (cool feminine rosebud with a satin finish).

YSL Nude Edition Lip Set

I’ve been wanting to grab these classic nudes forever. Now I have the perfect excuse. Set includes Rouge VoluptĂ© Tint in Balm in #9 Nude in Private, Rouge Pur Couture Lip Color in #70 Le Nu & Vinyl Cream Lip Stain in #417 Beige Bounce. All full sized.

MAC Nude Lip Trio

The brand that started it all for many of us. I still remember when they were brand new. I have fond memories of visiting the MAC counter in the late 90s. This set has nude lipsticks Love Drought (metallic rose with a metallic finish), Lipstick in Pretty Natural (nude peach with gold pearl and a cremesheen finish) & Lipglass in BodyCon (creamy beige).


Diptyque Scented Candle Set

I’ve always wanted to venture more into Diptyque candles. This is the perfect opportunity to try a few favorites in minis at a sale price.

Set includes:

– Baies: featuring notes of blackcurrant and Bulgarian rose.

– Figuier: featuring notes of the fig tree.

– Feu de Bois: featuring woody notes.

– Roses: featuring notes of tender, changing roses.

– TubĂ©reuse: featuring notes of the tuberose flower.

Frederic Malle Carnal Flower Travel Spray & Case

The ultimate tuberuse scent. I love minis like this. If you collect and like a lot of fragrances it’s nice to have minis. The case is divine looking. Plus Frederic Malle is just a divine brand.

Notes-Top: bergamot, eucalyptus, melon. Middle: jasmine, ylang-ylang. Base: orange blossom, tuberose, musk, coconut.

Herbivore Botanicals Rosewater + Gemstone Trio

Considering a full size Pink Cloud is $48 and this set is only $52 it’s a no brainer. Pink Cloud is a coconut rose infusion cream. I love the light and hydrating cream texture. The scent is pretty killer too. Very light and natural. I’ve only had a mini and been eyeing a big one. Get an extra mini Rose mist and I’ve never tried the Brighten mask.
