I always look forward to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale each July. This year, early access starts July 13, and then the sale is open to everyone July 21 – August 6.

I scoped out some of my favorite beauty deals to share! There are so many amazing value sets, Nordstrom can just shut up and take my money.

Just a note: in order to get early access, you need to be a Nordstrom card holder. Personally, I have a Nordstrom debit card, which did not require a credit check, and the money comes straight from my checking account.



The Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Lipstick Sets are an amazing deal – 2 lipsticks and a lip liner for $60. There’s a pink set and a nude set, and let’s be honest – all of her lipsticks are gorgeous.

The Dior Addicted to Pink Lip Set doesn’t offer the biggest bang for your buck (in comparison to the Charlotte Tilbury set), but 2 full size lipsticks come with a mini Lip Maximizer and round bag. It’s a nice set to try Dior lip products.

Okay, but how cute is this mini lipstick & gloss set from MAC?? These neutral shades look perfect for on-the-go.

Nordstrom is slaying with the lip sets tbh. The NARS Tribulation set is an amazing deal with 4 of their Velvet Matte Lip Pencils. I love the formula of these pencils – they’re budge-proof and long-lasting.


Whaaaat?! Charlotte Tilbury has a new Bronze & Blush palette, and it looks stunning. It also comes with a little brush, though I’m not sure how her brush quality is.

Hourglass makes some of the most gorgeous, silky powders out there. Their new Diffused Light Palette contains a blush, bronzer, and all-over powder. The Diffused shade is my fave because it counteracts redness. I definitely recommend for people who hesitate with face color due to redness issues!

If you’re looking for a show-piece, the new Guerlain Terracotta bronzer is it. It’s just. so. pretty.


FINALLY! Glamglow has released their masks in a tube packaging instead of the jar. I absolutely love Supermud for stopping breakouts, but the mask itself always dried out so quickly in the jar that it felt like it wasn’t worth the money. The set also comes with a brush to apply the mask, which is an awesome bonus!

It’s really tricky to reapply sunscreen when you’re already wearing makeup. That’s why I love the Supergoop Defense Refresh Setting Mist SPF50. It mists on a sunscreen without disturbing makeup. A win-win! This set has a full-size and a purse size.

I so badly want to try Dior’s newly revamped skincare line, and their Hydra Life set is a great deal. I love Dior skincare – I think it’s quite underrated. Just a note: their products do generally contain fragrance.

I tried a sample of the La Mer Moisturizing Soft Cream once, and I totally got the hype. The Mini Miracles Set would be a great buy to keep around the moisturizer for special occasions without breaking the bank.

Fragrance, Hair, & Body

I’m over here desperately trying to figure out if I can use another flat iron because the Drybar Tressed to Impress set is such a good deal. It comes with the flat iron, clips, and 3 full size Drybar products.

Molton Brown is pure luxury when it comes to body care. The Body Wash Duo is a great deal to stock up on my favorite scent, Pink Pepperpod.

I’ve recently become a Diptyque addict, so their candle set is in my cart as we speak. It’s $55 for 5 of their small candles, a $75 value.

Elizabeth & James Nirvana White is a favorite fragrance of mine. This set (available in their other scents too) comes with a full size fragrance, rollerball, and a dry shampoo. I’ve purchased the dry shampoo in the past, and it’s actually a great product (and smells amazing).
