2014 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Exclusive Highlights – Early Access for Cardholders

July 10, 2014

The 2014 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has arrived for Nordstrom Cardholders. Early access starts today July 10 and runs through the 17th. You will need to sign into your online account linked to your Nordstrom Card in order to shop the sale online or see sale prices. There are over 200 Nordstrom Beauty Exclusives for the Anniversary Sale along with some Gift With Purchase Items as well. (Some of the GWPs are available at select stores or online only.) The focus seems to be almost exclusively on value sets rather than exclusive collections. Here are a few select items I wanted to highlight (left to right, top to bottom):
  • Chanel Dentelle Précieuse Illuminating Powder ($80) is finally in the US as a Nordstrom Exclusive, it’s currently not listed as an Anniversary Exclusive online (although that is what my sales associates have told me)

I have my eye on two things: the Chanel Highlighter and NARS Dolce Vita Box Set, but that may change once I see the items in person. I love the look of the Diptyque sets since you basically get the candle snuffer and wick trimmer for free with the purchase of the two candles. My mom loves L’Occitane and Bobbi Brown so I might pick up a couple sets for her since her birthday is this month.
What do you have your eye on for the sale? Will you be shopping the sale for early access?

  • Hello, is the Charlotte Tilburry set will be available for sale during the anniversary sale ONLY? Or will we be able to purchase it after the sale ends? Thanks!!!!

    • I'm not sure, I didn't even know Nordstrom carried Charlotte Tilbury – perhaps it's a preview. If I find out more I'll update the post, they did a feature on her favorites:


      But none of her items are for sale yet.

    • Thank you!

      Hi Virginie,

      A Nordstrom SA told me it will still be available after the anniversary sale unless they sold out…Also she told me they will start carrying her line in September. Hope this helps.

    I ended up getting the Chanel highlighter, the Trish Mcevoy planner and brush set and the Dior exclusives. I also preordered the new Chanel eyeshadow palettes and liners after playing around with them. Those palettes are phenomenal. They are smooth, buttery and pigmented. Overall very impressed.

    • Great picks! The Trish Planner is gorgeous but I didn't love all the colors in the palette, it's very tempting though!

  • thanks hun, I think I'm gonna purchase the mac nude set and chanel highlighter


  • Wait, what, Charlotte Tilbury? I wonder if Nordstrom is going to start carrying the whole line….

    • I had the same thoughts! If I find out more I will update.

    • Per a tweet I had with a CR the other night, they said they will begin carrying the line later this year. Net-a-Porter and BG will also sell CT later this year too!
      Hope this helps!

    The Deborah Lippmann set is GORGEOUS!!!!!! I picked up some of the Voluspa candles, Chanel Powder and some non-sale sunnies. Have fun!!! – Zeynep

    • I have my eye on non-sale sunnies too 🙂

  • Well….I walked away without buying the Chanel highlighter. It looked like very shiny beige eye shadow on me……in fact I could get the same look with any of the hundreds of shiny beige eye shadows I have. Looked at the new palettes. They swatch gorgeously and I look forward to trying them. My SA tried the YSL Fetiche palette on me…using 3 colors. Sexy smoky eye…but do I really need it? I'm on the fence about it. I just wasn't feeling much today and didn't see anything I really HAD to buy. Bummer!

    • Thanks for sharing, if you didn't love any of it then no need to spend $$$. Better to save up for upcoming fall releases you'll really like and get a lot of use from 🙂

  • So… how exactly do we have access to the Charlotte Tilbury set? I thought Nordstrom would not be selling her items until later this year? Plus, when I search CT on Nordstrom, the only things that come up are her recommendations from other brands…? I'm dying to get my hands on her stuff, I just didn't know it was possible!

    • I believe it's a beauty exclusive for the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. Sometimes they will do an exclusive sneak peek preview.

  • I wish I could participate… lol
