Secret Nordstrom Beauty Sale!

Juuuuuust a friendly reminder of all the things I would recommend grabbing over at the Nordstrom Beauty sale and a few looks I created with the products that I love (included in the sale, obvs 💁🏻‍♀️)!!

First up, what I filled my cart with! The things that I have been putting off buying, but have heard incredible things about, just thought were worth a shot OR already own and MUST stock up on.

FACE WIPES : I ran out of my stock pile recently, so snagged a few more of my favorite makeup removing face wipes! :: BODY LOTION : The reviews are out of this world for this lotion and it has been in my cart forever – finally pulled the trigger :: TINTED MOISTURIZER : This is the hottest item that eeeeeveryone owns but me. It was about time I figured out what all the hype was about :: SETTING POWDER : This travel set includes ALL of the best setting powders and is all I need in my life (eye brightener powder, translucent & glow!) :: SECRET CONCEALER : This was one of the first beauty items that I bought way back in the day and LOVED it. Ordered another one to see if it’s as incredible as I remember for blemishes :: BOLD BLUSH : I already own a few shades in this formula, but they are so good, the shade ‘Grapefruit’ just needed to be mine :: PORE PRIMER : I have a sample of this primer that I have been using over the past week and OMGEEEEE, I am in love. Ordered the full size & cannot WAIT! :: BLUE MASCARA : I already own a few tubes, but I have heard this is getting discontinued & I love giving it as a gift 😘 so I bought a few more :: LIP GLOSS : I am sooooo hooked on the balm in this same shade I had to grab this formula in the same shade, obvs :: BRUSH CLEANER : This cleaner is so effective and the easiest that I have used to get my brushes clean, so I stocked up on this one while it is cheaper! :: LIPSTICK : The shade ‘Bare’ has been sitting in my cart for ages, so I finally made to decision to make her apart of my collection :: EYE PRIMER : This formula is gold for me, so I picked up another shade of shimmer to wear on no-makeup days 👍🏼

Second up, the things I cannot live without. These are the beauty items that I reach for the most and that I have loved for years – they are my holy grails!

You babes know how much I love each of these products, you see them ALLL the time. No need to explanation. BRONZER :: EYE SHIMMER :: LIP OIL :: LIP BALM :: LIPSTICK :: EYE CREAM :: SHIMMER SHADOW PALETTE :: BROW POMADE :: STICK FOUNDATION :: MATTE FOUNDATION :: GLOWY FOUNDATION :: CONCEALER :: LIQUID LIPSTICK :: EYESHADOW

Lastly, the gift sets that are worth the price even IF they weren’t on sale!! I loooooove getting in holiday shopping early so that I am not stressed when it is crunch time. These are the things that will earn you “best gift giver” for any beauty junkie in your life.

POWER LIP : This NARS formula is absolutely incredible & I adore the size of these because I would never go through a full tube (they are that pigmented, you only need the smallest amount!) :: LIQUID LIPSTICK SET : This seems crazy, but these are THE BEST formula of liquid lipstick and would cover every.single.one. of your friends! I would split these all apart and keep some for me and gift the rest to sisters and friends :: HEAT SET : I adore my Petite Heat palette and THIS set also includes my favorite primer, the one and only setting spray and a great black liner. No brainer! :: GIANT HIGHLIGHTER : This size will last you (or your buddy) until the apocalypse and is in my top three favorite highlighters while ALSO being cheaper than the original size – GLORY GLORY – get it!! $52 VALUE 🙌🏼 :: BROW/LASH SERUM : These serums retail for $100 A PIECE & so the set was already an incredible deal, but now it’s ON SALE! I have seen results already in my brows after using this suuuuuuper sparingly for only a month! :: BLUSH SET : Not only does this set include all the best Benefit blushes AND a brush, but it includes the famous Hoola bronzer. Packaged in one travel friendly box!! It’s perfection! :: GLITTER LINER : I have loved these eyeliners for yeaaaaaars, so I gifted MYSELF a few more shades. They are really so so good. :: MUST HAVE : This set includes one of my favorite highlighters, a stunning blush and my latest lash discovery! I am buying this set for my mom for Christmas!

I hope you find something from the sale that you have been wanting!!

I look forward to this month of promotions all year. No joke. Ulta SLAYS when it comes to rewards, so I prefer spending my money where it will go further and where I am rewarded for shopping with CASH MONEY YO’!!! Then Ulta goes and does an entire month of daily deals on beauty industry holy grails and I am just like, “Fine, take allllll my money.” These deals are GOOD babes. Like so good, you might want to stock up for your personal stash or buy one for your sister and her dog or just snag one to be the best gift giver on the face of the earth 😘 whatever you do, just don’t miss out on MY PICKS!

I have hand selected the deals that I am certain will sell out, that are only available online and the deals that I will be grabbing during these glorious 21 Days : THIS WEEK BELOW!!! There are a few days that I pass on entirely, so just read carefully and mark your calendars for those bangin’ deals!

  • iT COSMETICS : Confidence in a Cream 50% off : My mom has been loooooving this cream and I have been wanting to pick it up for awhile now, so today is the day!! This is so creamy, so hydrating, so plumping yet doesn’t leave the skin feeling tacky or heavy. This will become my new day time moisturizer & I could not be more thrilled!
  • URBAN DECAY : All-Nighter Setting Spray 50% off : NOW IS THE TIME! This is theeeee setting spray on the market. There is nothing like is truthfully, so while it’s just $16 I might just snag a few!
