Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 Beauty Shopping Guide, Haul and Recommendations

July 13, 2017

Nordstrom Anniversary Haul 2017 | The Beauty Look Book

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally here for Early Access! If you have a Nordstrom Card you can shop the sale starting today July 13th through July 20th. It opens up to everyone else on July 21st and ends August 6th. As a beauty lover this is one of my favorite events because this is when Nordstrom launches a ton of their Beauty Exclusives. They offer a little bit of everything from makeup, beauty tools like brushes, hair dryers, face devices, skincare, body care etc. My favorite items are their makeup beauty sets and exclusive colors. They also have a lot of their best sellers in large value sizes so you can stock up on your staples. I stopped by my local Nordstrom to shop the sale (secret tip, if you’re a Level 4 Rewards Member you get a 1 day early access to things like this sale). The Nordstrom here in Tampa has a decent selection however it’s on the smaller side and they didn’t carry all the items for the sale so I’ll be ordering a few things online. Also another tip is to check their Gift With Purchase Page whether you’re shopping online or in store. It’s a good idea to make a list, especially of the GWPs – when you’re in store there’s a lot to browse and you can easily miss out on some great extras especially if you’re stocking up for gifts or spending a good amount with a single brand. Do note some of the GWPs may be online only.

First a quick look at some of the exclusives set up in store. For those of you who don’t have a Nordstrom near you I hope this helps give you a visual idea of what the Beauty Exclusives section looks like. I didn’t get photos of everything in store – these are just some highlights. There are a lot of skincare options and value sets.

I felt like the shoe and clothing selection in store was pretty lacking in the store near me so I’ll be shopping the sale items online. If I find anything I’ll definitely do a haul post on that. Here’s a quick look at some shoes I saw that were interesting including these Tory Burch Bryce Sandals and a lot of good sales on boots.

For now here’s my Beauty Haul Part 1. I will be reviewing and swatching everything in the upcoming days.

Nordstrom Anniversary Beauty Haul Picks | The Beauty Look Book

What I hauled from beauty, Part 1:

Nordstrom Haul | The Beauty Look Book

On my order wishlist includes the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow Set, the Butter London Set, Frederic Malle Carnal Flower, Glamglow Set, Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss Minis, and another Clarisonic Alphafit for my husband because his needs to be replaced.


My top beauty recommendations would also include the Diptyque 5-Piece Set, the simplehuman Sensor Mirror (I love it, I’ve had mine for around 4+ years), any Clarisonic device (I like the Mia Fit the best) and if you’re a fan of nude lips, grab the MAC Look in a Box Set as soon as you see it – it always sells out quickly every year. In previous years some brands also launch their fall beauty collections around this time at Nordstrom. I didn’t see anything out yesterday but it was the pre-early access so they might not have had a chance to put everything out yet.

In case you’re wondering, my Anniversary Sale fashion wishlist on this page here.

    Dying to try the Simplehuman!

  • Bubblewrapper

    I am seriously eyeing the Tom Ford set. The eye color looks extremely wearable, I have heard good things from Beauty Professor about the mascara, and I believe that lipstick would be neutral yet not dead lip looking. I love reading everyone’s recommendations, thank you very much for that and the giveaway.

    I got the charlotte tillbury brozne and blush set. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Kylie Brief

    Looking at that CT palette ๐Ÿ˜

    I had the Tom Ford set in my basket today but saved it as I wasn’t sure about the eye color and if it is a dupe for something I already have. Looking forward to some swatches soon!

    I think the Hourglass palette.

    I’m interesting in snagging the BP Rib Stitch Cardigan in each color available – it’s so comfy! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The RMS Beauty Glowing Set! Finally going to try something from this brand. Hope it’s still available by the time it opens up for public sale ๐Ÿ™

    • lawler

      I didn’t even notice this one. Let me go investigate!

  • Gail A

    Love the Nest Difusers and all the candles. Found some cool ones in bedding also

  • Rust

    I really like the Tory Burch Frida bag.

  • GK

    The Tom Ford set!!

  • Melody Maa

    Thanks for sharing your haul part 1! Looking forward to seeing what else you’ll be getting online =).
    I’ve been eyeing the Jo Malone Cologne collection….seems to have a few new fragrances I haven’t noticed before!

  • Laurie M.

    SO GLAD you posted this I had forgotten all about it!!

  • Elise T

    I have notized that you are using the Tory Burch flat sandals a lot. How are these sizewize? I usually wear 37, but in some sandals, e.g. Birkenstock, I am a 36. Any advice?

    • I’m a 6.5 in most brands, I’m also a 6.5 in Tory Burch for an exact fit. I could have gone with a 7 but they run just a tiny bit long. Haven’t worn/tried Birkenstocks before so can’t compare on sizing. I would go with your usual size! If you buy/order from Nordstrom they have a really good return/exchange policy (based on the places I’ve purchased mine).

  • Jen

    I want it all!!

  • Lisa Brown

    I have the Crochet Off the Shoulder Top by SOCIALITE on my list.

  • Lisa Brown

    For beauty, I have the ‘Cheek to Chic’ Swish & Pop Blush in Ecstasy by CHARLOTTE TILBURY

  • Christina

    I’m not feeling this year’s beauty offering. It just isn’t as spectacular this time around, which is a good thing because I have a ton of fashion pieces I want to pick up this year.

  • Maria M

    I would love the RMS glowing set and the Kiehl’s super sized moisturizers.

  • stefaniegladden

    I’m loving the Dior Addicted to Nude Lip Set!

  • Natalie

    I would love to get a new hair dryer and eye liner from Nordstrom!

  • Charli Griffith

    I purchased the YSL nude set and a S’well bottle. I also got the new NARS bronzer/highlights palette but that’s not a part of the sale. I’m considering getting the Diptyque candle set but I’m wondering if I should just save my money and get a full size one. What do you think? I’ve never owned one and I’m very curious to try them!!
    Thank for the great post Sabrina!

  • Kim

    I need to replace my cheap European hair dryer (220V) after 5 years overseas. The T3 Featherweight 2 is calling my name. Here is to hoping it is still available when the sale opens up to everyone on the 21st!

  • Kelsey Ballance

    I want to finally give in and try neulash! The fact that you get more than just the one bottle when it is so pricey…seems like a good time to try!

  • I’m trying to pick up some permanent Le Vernis for summer, since the summer collection disappointed me so much. I’m almost ready to give up on Lucia Pica, unfortunately.

  • star

    I’d love to get the T3 dryer!

  • Erin

    Great picks as always! I have my eye on that Tom Ford trio.

  • Allie

    It just depends on what’s left for the public sale…I’d love to grab the simple human mirror or guerlain bronzer!

  • Elle

    I’d love the Butter London set and some bold lip tints.

  • Alison

    I was considering the Mirror, but the reviews are extremely mixed on Amazon– with lots of complaints. I already have TF Escapade so the TF trio is out. So at this point, I am looking at the Ouai duo because I’ve tried it at Sephora a few times and really like it. Even though I don’t really use dry shampoos, as the last thing my hair needs is drying, having that extra product could be good in an emergency. The YSL lip set is also very tempting as for half the year, I am pretty much wearing pink lipstick every single day.

  • Lauren

    I’m thinking about trying the SK_II set.

  • murphmeister

    Great recs…. Totally need to get that antica handwash!

  • Daisy

    Love your picks

  • Sara C.

    Very interested in the nude Dior set!

  • Cindy Aiton

    Aveda Be Curly Curl Enhancer, Moroccanoil Curl Defining Cream, and Living Proof Curl Defining Styling Cream. I have naturally fine curls and am always searching for styling products that eliminate frizz without weighing my hair down. *sigh* It is a constant struggle.

  • Lisa C

    I’ve spread out my purchased, but 1st round I got the CT bronze/blush then I just now picked up the Hourglass palette & YSL lip palette in pink <3

  • Sue Yi

    thanks so much for doing this giveaway. I already put in my first order for some new winter items but would love to eyeing some of the beauty exclusives for a second order

  • Alix

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Sanam Hana
  • Carolina Pereira

    So many gorgeous stuff!


  • Nicole

    I really want to get the La Mer set. I’ve been wanting to try those for a long time and the set seems like a good deal. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Jennifer

    Appreciate how you included the labels and prices. I’m looking at several things but might only be able to fit one or two in my budget, so right now I’m thinking of the YSL Nude lip set… maybe…. Most of the time I don’t know what I’ll settle on until I hit the checkout!

  • Mary O’Hara

    I really want that Alterna Caviar set! I usually never treat myself to expensive shampoos and conditioners, but everyone raves about this one.

  • Grace k

    I’m lemming the Diptyque candle set!

  • Colleen P.

    I’m hoping to get the Jo Malone set. The fragrances all sound lovely.

  • ReturnedtoSender

    I’m really curious to see your thoughts on that Charlotte Tilbury palette, if you end up getting it.

  • Cadie Campbell

    I’m hoping to pick up the charlotte tilbury filmstar bronze and blush glow set and after reading your review, the hourglass palette is also on my list since i don’t have any of their palettes.

  • Mirela

    So I went and did a little damage but not much, not yet! I got the Kate Somerville Set, the Beauty Blender set, and the Dior set (2 lipticks, mini, and bag). I’m trying not to purchase anything else but there is so much time left! I love BP botties so I might cave and buy those! Hard to be good!

  • Linda S.

    I always like to see your hauls and recommendations for these sales.

  • Trudi

    I saved plenty on my Wish List. I will buy the Luna Pro Cleaner which I have been dying to try. Also the PMD Pro, the MAC lip colors you recommended. And, the T3 Hair Dryer. as my older hair dryer just gets too hot even on medium setting and is too low to dry on the lowest setting, so it’s time after 6 years. Who needs a Hair Dryer that dries out my hair and burns my scalp? Not I! .

  • The Mario Badescu set is definitely on my wish list.

  • marissaborromeo

    Might finally try Kiehl’s Creme de Corps body lotion. We’ll see. Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Nan

    I was tempted by the Rodin Luxury Face Oil and Moisturizer, but haven’t caved in to this pricey impulse yet. I was really disappointed that the Sam Edelman Raefaella embellished flats in black sold out before I could even try them, same for the Steve Madden blue crushed velvet mules! I did get a cute pair of mesh insert Zella leggings and splashed out for a bar of Tom Ford Neroli Portofino bath soap even though it wasn’t on sale. It’s pretty fabulous!

  • Veewhyextee

    There are too many things on my wishlist from Nordstrom’s beauty section in the sale and one of the TOP in my list would be the PMD microdermabrasion device but i have always had to put it off as it is really considerably pricey for me as a student (and also due to the exchange rate). Apart from the PMD, I’ve also got my eyes set on the beauty blender set, NARS fox Dancer mini multiple style as well as the hourglasses ambient diffused light palette! A girl can never have too much beauty products ๐Ÿ˜ Thank you for hosting the giveaway!

  • Birdiebee

    Owning a Clarisonic is on my beauty list.

  • emeris

    The one thing on my list I want to pick up is the Tom Ford Eye and Lip Set. So many great items in one set :). Thank you for hosting the giveaway. Hope you have a great day.

  • Joanna S

    I’m really interested in one of the NARS lip pencil sets.

  • Breanna Pollard


  • Ellese Launer

    I am really loving how much beauty they have this year at the sale. Nordstrom totally stepped up their A game this year. I can’t wait to invest in that hair dryer! Thanks for sharing your insight. XO, Ellese
