2018 Nordstrom Sale – Beauty Picks

Happy Monday! I hope you all had an amazing weekend! In case you haven’t heard, early access to Nordstrom’s annual NSale began on Thursday, July 12. The early access is for card holders only, but public access begins on July 20. The sale ends and prices increase on August 6! I think this year is even BETTER than last year and I am so excited to share with you my top beauty picks in today’s post.


If you do not have a card and would like to apply to gain early access, you can do so here. To see everything that’s included in this year’s sale, you can view the look book here.

Also, (side note) a lot of clothing items have already “sold out,” however, Nordstrom holds on to some of that inventory for when the sale goes public and will periodically restock throughout the 3 and a half week sale.


ONE: Kiehl’s Jumbo Creme de Corps Bottle with Pump – The BEST lotion ever! I always buy a new one during the Anniversary sale and the jumbo bottle lasts me a full year.
$52 (originally $75)

TWO: Sara Happ The Lip Expert Coconut Set – This two piece lip treatment comes with a coconut scrub to exfoliate your lips and then a Luxe Lip Balm to hydrate! This will leave your lips feeling so smooth!
$32 (originally $46)

THREE: T3 White and Chrome Cura Hair Dryer – I’ve had this hair dryer for about 3 years now and it’s completely worth the investment! I naturally have dry hair and it helps reduce frizz and maintains the shine.
$134 (originally $200)

FOUR: T3 Grey SinglePass Curl 1.25″ Curling Iron – This is definitely on my wishlist. I love T3 products and purchased their interchangeable wand during last year’s sale and I use it all the time. Would love to try their new curling iron!
$107 (originally $160)

FIVE: Skinny Dip Pink + Rose Gold Manicure Set – My mom got me a similar set about 6 years ago for Christmas and I STILL have it. I take it with me everywhere. It can easily fit it in my purse and those scissors come in handy more times than you would think!
$23 (originally $42)

SIX: Charlotte Tilbury Pretty Pink Lipstick Set – This is also on my wishlist. I have heard really great things about Charlotte Tilbury products and this sale is the perfect opportunity to try more expensive products at a lower price!
$60 (originally $90)

SEVEN: Voluspa Maison Blanc Two -Wick Tin Candle Set – I also got a set of these from last year’s sale and I STILL have not burned through all of them (only 1). However, these candles smell amazing and make the best gifts!
$29.50 (originally $48)

EIGHT: Alterna Caviar Set – I’ve heard amazing things about this shampoo and I am so excited to try it and see if it lives up to the hype! Before I order the larger set though, I am doing the trail size to make sure I like it.
$72 (originally 114)

NINE: Iluminage Skin Rejuvenating Pillowcase –¬† I am really excited to get this in the mail. I have always wanted to try these pillowcases and it’s much cheaper than the other pillowcase included in the sale (which is $110)!
$39 (originally $60)

TEN: Nars Undressed Liquid Lip Set II – I love NARS lip brand, they are definitely worth the money and last all day! I feel like the colors in this kit are great everyday basics and I’m excited to try some new ones at a discount ūüôā
$49 (originally $104)

ELEVEN: Impressions Vanity Co. Touch Trifold XL Dimmable LED Makeup Mirror – So I have never actually owned a nice makeup mirror and I am so excited to try this out. I was debating between this one and a smaller version (both included in the sale). If this one is too big than I may just exchange for the smaller one.
$58.90 (originally $89)

Any other beauty favorites you’ve found in the sale that aren’t in my top 11? Leave me a comment -I’d love to try them out! I’ll be following up later this week with some of my favorites from the sale in activewear, clothing and accessories!
