The Beauty Edit | Anniversary Sale Top Picks

Jul 18, 2017

I finally had time to browse the beauty portion of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and there are some really awesome deals.  I know last year some of the better beauty stuff sold out quickly so I wanted to go ahead and share my top picks!  I own and use so many of these products.  This is a great time to buy some of the hair tools and to try out some new products while the prices are discounted.  I always stock up on Nest candles while they are on sale.

Beauty Favs



Simple Human Mirror

I splurged and bought this after using my mom’s every time I was home and I love it.  You can see so well to apply your make-up. The light simulates natural sunlight so you can really see your skin clearly.  The mirror comes with a smaller mirror that you can attach that provides 10X magnification for an even closer look (the regular mirror provides 5x magnification) .  This is already back ordered, so if you have ever wanted one now is the time to buy  before it sells out completely.  This may be my favorite item that is part of the sale.


LaMer Mini Miracles Set

This set is under $100 which is unheard of for LaMer.  I love the LaMer moisturizer, it works so well.  A little bit goes a long way so it does last for awhile.

Supergoop Sunscreen

This is one of my favorite spray sunscreens.  It is water resistant and paraben free.  I always use this for the kids.


I have heard nothing but great things about this.  I have seen so many people who have used it and it really works to lengthen and thicken lashes.  I actually bought some but have had an eye infection and can’t use it til it clears up.  This is a great deal.


I have this and love it.  It truly does create the perfect beach waves and is very user friendly.

T3 Hairdryer

I also have this and it works great.  It dries hair super quickly.

Chanel Lipgloss Set

I love my Chanel lipglosses and these are 3 awesome colors.

Drybar Set

I am newly obsessed with all Drybar products.  I use all three of these and love them.  Added bonus they all smell amazing.  Prep Rally is my favorite hair product right now, it works wonders for smoothing and detangling hair plus it conditions as the same time.

Clarisonic Mia

I keep this in my shower and use it 3x a week to exfoliate.

Bobbi Brown set

This set is an incredible deal, retail value is $365 and it is only $98.  All the colors look amazing too.

RMS Beauty Set

I love the whole RMS line.  The white highlighter is one of my favorite everyday products.  I apply it above my eyes and under my eyebrows and it really helps to brighten your eyes and make them pop.  The pink is great for your lips and/or cheeks and the brown is a great eyeshadow.  This is a clean line.

Nest Diffuser

I love using these in different rooms in our house.  The Bamboo scent is amazing and the grapefruit is so light and fresh.

There is also a Nest candle set that is part of the sale.

Aerin Perfume Set

I own 2 Aerin perfumes and always get compliments when I wear them.  This such a great light summer scent.  If you layer the lotion and perfume it helps your scent to last longer.

T3 Straightening Iron

I have owned 2 of these and they are hands down the best straightening irons.


Glam Glow Set

I love all Glam Glow masks.  This set comes with a moisturizer too, which I have heard is great.


Three new products I am ordering to try are:

Arcona Triad Toner Pads-

Gal Meets Glam mentioned these on her blog and I have been wanting to try them ever since.


Mac Sweet and Spicy Lip Kit

This looks like the perfect nude lip with a hint of color.


Elemis Face Wash

I have been dying to try the Elemis line.  So many bloggers have mentioned it and their love for it.  This anti-aging face wash has received rave reviews.

I also want to try out this Pro-Collagen Marine Cream.
