Typically during this sale, at least in the beauty realm, we don’t see much by way of discounted luxury makeup products or deals. The beauty of this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? We DEFINITELY are.
Every year I used to sit on the edge of my seat waiting for that Nordstrom Anniversary Sale preview to drop. To this DAY I still regret not buying this Chloe bag for 40% off 4 or 5 years ago (in addition, the MSRP was also a lot lower. ugh.). This year I am blown away to see that several products I know and love are featured in sets at an AMAZING price point. There are also quite a few other notable items I am interested in snagging (such as the new MAC makeup and the RevitaLash brow set).
Because these deals are so amazing, I’ve listed the savings below each short product description in italics.
Products I Love:
beautyblender Electric Feels Set ($35.00): Though I use many types of makeup sponges I just love a beautyblender and I love the cleanser. In this set, you get full sizes of 2 limited edition beautyblender sponges as well as a blendercleanser solid.
By purchasing the set you’d save approximately $20 off of the retail price of buying separately.
Charlotte Tilbury Glowing, Gorgeous Eye Secrets Set ($70.00). In this set, you’ll receive 3 full-size products – 1 Legendary Lashes Volume 2 Mascara and 2 Eyes to Mesmerize in Star Gold and Golden Eclipse. I love this mascara and the formula of the Eyes to Mesmerize can’t be beat!
To purchase these 3 items separately you’d pay $96. This set will save you $26 which is like getting one of the Eyes to Mesmerize for only $6!
Luxie Rose Gold Eye Brush Set ($30.00). I’m a huge fan of Luxie brushes. They always work well and allow for a quick and seamless eye look. In this set, you’ll get the 205, 208, 209, and 221 brushes.
The retail price of all 4 would be around double what is offered here!
Olaplex Jumbo Bond Maintenance System Set ($84.00). You’re getting a JUMBO size of the Hair Perfector No.3 (!!! aka God’s gift to hair) along with full-sizes of the Shampoo No.4 and Conditioner No.5.
Retail value of all three products is listed as being $126.00. Sign me up times 3, please.
Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo & Dry Texturizing Spray Set ($64.00). I’ve tried samples of both of these from beauty subscription boxes and LOVE them both!
Separately the retail value totals up at $96 for the same sizes, so this is a wonderful deal!
RIKI Skinny Lighted Mini Vanity Mirror ($130.00). I’ve had my RIKI Skinny for about 4 years now and I love that it lights up well and is, for the most part, portable. This appears to be a more updated version of mine (I think mine only brightens up to 3 levels whereas this is 5) + it’s in Rose Gold so maybe it’s time for a little upgrade?
These mirrors retail for $195! When I bought mine it was at a discount at The Makeup Show and I believe I paid $150 there. $130 is a super-steal!
T3 Cura Professional Digital Ionic Hair Dryer ($155.00). Have this, love this, don’t ever want to be without this. A powerhouse hair dryer that has stood the test of time making it well worth even the full retail value.
The retail price of this fabulous hair dryer is $285.00. NOT KIDDING. Snap it up.
Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray Duo ($42.00). Here you’ll snag a full-size (8.11oz) and a travel-size (1oz) of my current favorite setting spray.
This is a FANTASTIC deal because the regular size of this setting spray retails for $33 and it’s less than HALF of what you’re getting here as the full size.
Products I’m Interested In:
Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip Secrets Set ($68.00). This set includes 3 full-sized products of the Lip Cheat Liner, Collagen Lip Bath and Matte Revolution Lipstick. While I’m already a fan of the Lip Cheat Liner I’ve yet to purchase the full-size of the lipstick and I don’t own any of the Collagen Lip Bath shades. Pillowtalk is a shade I know looks good on me, so I feel confident I’ll love this set.
When purchased separately, the retail value of this trio is $91! If you know you love the Pillowtalk shade, don’t sleep on this one!
Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer & Translucent Setting Powder Duo ($59.00). For this set, it’s said you’ll get full-sizes of the Veil Mineral Primer (1oz) and the Setting Powder (0.03). Though, the sizing listed appears to be less than half of what you’d get in the smaller size of the setting powder (currently listed as 0.07 on Nordstrom’s site). I’m assuming that is a mistype, but we’ll have to wait and see. The actual full-size of that powder is 0.36 so I would imagine it’s a mistype.
Basing this off of the actual full-size amounts, this is a great deal because full-sizes of these products retail for $54 and $46, respectively.
MAC All-Star Face Palette ($42.50). In this palette, you get 5 blushes in Crystal Pink, Strawberry Fields, Melon Pink, Hey Sis, and Buddy + 1 bronzer in Refined Golden. The total size is listed as 0.63oz.
Truly I wouldn’t call this a deal, however, I love the formula in MAC blushes and the shades look lovely. Plus they’re all in one place so it would be a good piece to travel with (if we’ll ever get to actually safely travel again lol)
MAC Eye Kit ($45.00). This kit is offered in both warm and cool (though currently, the pictures seem to be switched around) – I’m interested in the warm. The shade names listed for the eyeshadow appear to be new, but don’t quote me on that.
Though eyeshadow pan sizes aren’t listed you DO also get a full-size Technakohl Liner and a full-size Extreme Dimension 3D Mascara. Since those products retail for $43 together I think it’s safe to say this is a pretty sweet deal.
RevitaLash RevitaBrow Advanced Eyebrow Conditioner Duo ($110.00). In this set, you get two 0.1oz full sizes of the Eyebrow Conditioner.
This is a great deal because a full size of just ONE retails for $110.00. You’re getting another full size for FREE.
Let me know what you’re loving from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale preview! Maybe you can help me spend some $$$!
