Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Haul

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Exclusives 2022

Today I have a roundup of what I checked out from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Exclusives! I was happy to find some good deals and sales, but like most of you, was a little disappointed that the newness was limited. I was hoping for some new pretty palettes, new colors, innovative formulas but most of the makeup items were repeats of existing items packaged into sets.

That being said I do think there are still some great deals to be found. If you’ve had your eye on a simplehuman mirror, ghd flat iron, or T3 hair dryer it’s a great time to save. Or if you’re new to luxury beauty and wanted to try some popular colors like the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk or Westman Atelier there are some nice bundles!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Exclusives 2022

Charlotte Tilbury

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Exclusives 2022 Charlotte Tilbury

Charlotte Tilbury launched a number of Pillow Talk sets. The Pillow Talk lipstick is one of my favorite go-to lip colors. The Pillow Talk Lip Kit ($59, value is $92) has full sizes of the Matte Revolution Lipstick, Hyaluronic Happikiss Lipstick and Lip Cheat Lip Pencil. It’s a pretty good deal and makes for a nice gift!

The Pillow Talk Cheeks Set ($54, retail value is $80) has a full-size Pillow Talk Beauty Light Wand and Cheek to Chic Blush. Both are beautiful everyday staples you can wear year round.

I also picked up the Pillow Talk Eye Shadow Pencil Duo ($35, retail is $58). I love the Colour Chameleon pencils and really love the colors in this kit. The Pillow Talk shade is a gorgeous shimmery pink and the deeper color is a nice plum. Lasting power is really good once these set (recommend blending quickly).

Hourglass & Westman Atelier

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Essentials Palette

Hourglass and Westman Atelier both have repeats in their palettes and sets this year. The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Essentials Palette ($68) has Dim Light, Diffused Heat and Luminous Bronze Light. All three colors are easy to wear for an effortless polished look. I already own all three shades individually and in other palettes but bought this as a gift.

Westman Atelier’s Weekend Set

Westman Atelier’s Weekend Set ($138) has three colors in a bundle. I already own all the colors so I didn’t buy it again, but did swatch it below for those of you who haven’t tried them yet.

There is also a Squeaky Clean Liquid Lip Balm Duo ($57) which Popsicle (bright red) and Nana (nude pink). I really love this formula!

MAC Sets

I almost always pick up at least one of the MAC Lip sets. I swatched the two Essential Lipwear Sets and Mini Lipglass Trio for you.

The Essential Lip Wear Set in Pink has some really nice options for fall. It has the Soar Lip Pencil, Nowstalgia Lipglass and Cozy Kisses Lipstick.

MAC Lip Set in Pink

The Essential Lip Wear Set in Neutral has Boldly Bare Lip Pencil, Bare Blanket Amplified Lipstick and Glass Half Full Lipglass (full sizes). The lipstick + gloss colors in the neutral kit pull more warm/orange on me than neutral.

MAC Lip Swatches

The Lipglass Mini Trio has Hygee Honey (cream beige nude), Cozy Rosy (cool pink) and The Pleasure is Mine (neutral pink).

Bobbi Brown

I picked up one set from Bobbi Brown. The Dual Ended Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick Duo ($34) is nice, especially for travel! The colors in this set looked perfect for fall although all the colors are repeats. Colors are easy to layer and are also pretty much budge-proof once they set.

NSALE Bobbi Brown Dual Ended Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick Duo

Fragrances & Skincare

Le Labo Discovery Set

There are tons of fragrance sets and jumbo sizes available too. I picked up the Le Labo Discovery Set since I love having minis in my purse with me on-the-go. Tom Ford has their Soleil Shimmer Body Oil Duo ($75) in the Soleil Blanc and Soleil Neige scents. I love these for a glow and shimmer. The scents are really beautiful too. I already own both of them so didn’t purchase the set again.

Tom Ford Mini Shimmer Body Oils

Le Labo has jumbo sizes of their Hinoki Shower Gel and Hand Soap. Both Andrew and I love these so I bought another one of each. For skincare I picked up the La Mer Luminous Renewal Set ($95) for travel minis.

NSALE Le Labo and La Mer

Hair Tools & Hair Care

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray and Gold Lust Dry Shampoo

For me Hair Care and Tools have the best deals for the sale. Oribe has repeats of previous year sets with the Gold Lust Set ($90, I restocked on this) and the Dry Texture + Dry Shampoo Set ($65).

ghd has their Platinum+ Styler* on sale for $187 and this is the best flat iron I’ve tried (full review soon). They also have their Soft Curl 1.25 inch curling iron on sale as well for $133.

ghd Platinum+ Styler

T3 has their Airluxe Hair Dryer* on sale for $133.99 (regular price $199.99) and SinglePass 1.25 Inch Ceramic Curling Iron* on sale for $113.90 (full price $169.99). The Hair Dryer is a really nice one and has multiple heat and fan settings.

NSALE T3 Airluxe Hair Dryer

Mirrors

Nordstrom Beauty Spring Launches Cle de Peau, Jo Malone, Tom Ford

I’ve received a number of questions about the simplehuman Sensor Mirror and Riki Loves Riki Lighted Mirror. I own both and use both. I use the Riki mirror almost everyday since I like to be able to see my whole face when I do my makeup. The simplehuman mirror is better for detail because it’s magnified. They’re both great. I’ve owned both for over 5 years and they’ve held up really well.

That wraps up my look at the Nordstrom Beauty Exclusives! Even though there are a lot of repeats I think there are still some great finds.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Try-On Haul

July 7, 2022

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Haul 2022

above: shelf Amazon / mirror West Elm / ottoman Article / top Rails (regular price) / shorts Agolde / sneakers Nike 

I have Part 1 of my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Haul today with a look at some of the things I picked up in fashion and accessories. My local store had a decent selection although they didn’t have as much stock as previous years. About 1/3 of the things on my list and radar weren’t in store. I was hoping to see some Tory Burch in store (they’re always such a big part of the sale), but they weren’t part of the sale this year.

Accessories

NSALE 2022 Sunglasses

My first stop was the Accessories Section. I didn’t see the jewelry I had on my radar but there was so much out on display (and some stored in glass display cases) I probably missed it. I managed to try the sunglasses that were on my radar including the Celine 50mm Polarized Sunglasses ($299.99, I hope they restock) and the Prada 51 mm Round Sunglasses ($199.99).

Celine Sunnies

Nordstrom Sale Celine Sunglasses

I tried on the AllSaints Odette East/West Leather Tote ($152.99, available in Black and Palisade Tan). It’s a cute well-priced tote but a little big for my size so I passed.

AllSaints Odette EastWest Leather Tote

The Dagne Dover selection was very limited. I picked up the Mila Small Travel Toiletry Organizer ($29.90) which has already sold out. You can still find it in other colors at the full-price ($45).

Dagne Dover

Dagne Dover Mila Small Toiletry Bag

For shoes I picked up the Nike Air Max Pre-Day Sneaker ($103.99 on sale). They ran a little bigger than most other Nike Sneakers I’ve tried. I’m usually a 7 in sneakers (6.5 in almost everything else). I opted for the 6.5 size and they’re pretty comfortable. I still prefer APL sneakers for comfort and quality.

Try-On Haul

I opted for casual basics that are comfortable for me to wear in the hot humid weather in Florida. There are always so many good denim options and cute jackets but I can’t wear them most of the year so usually pass on them. I did find a really good fit with one pair of jeans denim (Frame Denim below). Here is what I tried on. I’ve included sizes for reference – most of what I tried ended up being true to size. I’m 5’3” – shorts are my own from L’Agence and Sneakers are the Dior Walk’N’Dior Sneaker.

1.State Pintuck V-Neck Camisole in White and Black

Price: $38.99 on sale (after sale, $59)
Sizing: Wearing an XS
Mini Review: Soft and flowy with adjustable straps, pretty good quality, runs long but has enough room to tuck in, I bought the white one, will probably be a bit tight if you are bigger than a C cup. It’s snug on me but not too tight.

1.State Pintuck V-Neck Camisole in White

1.State Pintuck V-Neck Camisole in Black

________

All Saints Anna Cotton T-Shirt

Price: $38.99 (after sale $59)
Sizing: US Size 4
Thoughts: Nice comfortable basic with capped sleeves, I tried on the pale pink and blue color. I ended up going with the lighter color. Was also available in white (seemed see thru) and a faded black (looked a little too faded).

All Saints Anna Cotton T-Shirt

________

ATM Schoolboy Cotton Crewneck T-Shirt

Price: $98.90 (after sale $145)
Sizing: Tried on an XS, sometimes I wear a S
Thoughts: Love this thin slightly transparent boxy tee. I own this in a lot of other colors and think it’s a really good basic. The color Deep Coral is a lot brighter in real life than the stock image. I think it’s over priced but it’s a fun summer color.

ATM Schoolboy Cotton Crewneck T-Shirt

________

Rails Ellis Organic Cotton Button-Up

Price: $109.99 (after sale $168)
Sizing: Wearing an XS, but usually wear a S
Thoughts: Tried this just for fun, I already own this in a similar blue color so I passed, it’s also available in a Pear Green color which is really pretty. Love this for a super light weight cotton gauze shirt, I wear this style all the time (probably too much).

Rails Ellis Organic Cotton Button-Up

________

Billabong Sun Dazed Slub Cotton Blend Sweater

Price: $43.99 (after sale $65.95)
Sizing: Tried on the Small
Thoughts: LOVE this so I bought it in two colors. Nice slouchy feel, open holes so I can probably wear it here in Florida, could have sized up for a more slouchy look but liked these

Billabong Sun Dazed Slub Cotton Blend Sweater

________

Open Edit Ribbed Dolman Sleeve Cotton Sweater

Price: $39.90 (after sale $59)
Sizing: XS, could have sized down to an XXS but they didn’t have any in store
Thoughts: This is SO soft and cozy! It feels so soft and plush against the skin.

Frame Le High Straight Leg Ankle in Westway Grind

Price: $145.90 (after sale $238)
Sizing: 26 (same as what I wear in Paige, Mother, Joe’s)
Thoughts: Really liked the quality and fit, has a thick solid material with a bit of stretch. Ankle length is usually full length on me since I’m short.

Open Edit Ribbed Dolman Sleeve Cotton Sweater

________

Vince Essential Stripe Pima Cotton Crewneck Tee

Price: $59.99 (after sale $95)
Sizing: Wearing a Small (probably could have gone up to a medium)
Thoughts: Fitted good quality tee with cute off white stripes, love this for a simple look

Vince Essential Stripe Pima Cotton Crewneck Tee

________

A Few Other Things

I picked up a couple of the Free People FP Movement Free Throw Crop Tank ($19.99 on sale, regular price $30). I already own this in multiple colors and love it for around the house or under a button down. It’s stretchy, comfortable, and I love these. I wear a Medium.

Free People FP Movement Free Throw Crop Top Tank

NSALE Barefoot Dreams

Took a look at the Barefoot Dreams selection (just to look). They had the classic colors and styles but my store didn’t have the newer patterns, pillows or pet beds.

Full beauty haul to follow soon but wanted to mention the Diptyque 4 Piece Candle Set this year has the small 2.4 oz candles (versus the 1.2 oz minis they usually have). It’s hard to tell from the stock photo. I bought a set to have some extras on hand.

Diptyque 4 piece set

Also not part of the Anniversary Sale but I bought the Casper Glow Light a couple months ago and really love it! It’s an expensive splurge for a night light but I am absolutely obsessed. It’s chargeable so you don’t always have to have it plugged into an outlet (huge plus). You can change the brightness simply by twisting the light on a hard surface. It’s self-dimming so it will turn off while you fall asleep but you can also press the top to keep the light on. Super handy to carry with you at night if you wake up and have to go into the hallway but don’t want to turn on all the lights.

They’re marked down at Nordstrom for 50% off so I bought a couple sets for my in-laws and one more for us. Available in a 2-pack for $124.50 (regular price is $250) and individually for $64.50 (full price is $129).

Here’s what’s on my radar. Haul, review + swatches to follow as soon as I can post them! Each collage is clickable to shop and preview each item. I’ve also included a carousel below too.

Beauty Exclusives

I love the NSALE Beauty Exclusives and value sets during this sale. I will be stocking up on the Oribe Gold Lust Set ($90, regular price $136). Two of my favorite mirrors incluing the simplehuman 8-inch Sensor Mirror ($150 on sale, regular price $200) and Riki Loves Riki Lighted Mirror ($150 on sale, regular price $230) are both on sale (review here).

I have been testing out some new hair tools and one of the best flat irons I’ve used is the ghd Platinum+ 1 Inch Styler (full review coming very soon!). It’s available in two colors and on sale for $187 (regular price is $279). T3 also has their Aireluxe Hair Dryer ($133.99 on sale) and SinglePass 1.25 Inch Curling Iron ($113.90) on sale too.

If you’ve had Westman Atelier on your radar, definitely check out the Weekend Set ($138, regular price $171). Two of my favorite cleansers from Elemis and Kate Somerville are also on sale.

Women’s Fashion

There are tons of options in Women’s Fashion. There’s a lot of options for fall. Living in the middle of Florida it’s hot and sunny here most of the year, but I do have some things on my radar. I love the All Saints tees. One of my favorite off shoulder sweaters is also on sale in multiple colors. My go-to lightweight breezy button down from Rails is on sale in two colors, Blue Jay and Pear.

Accessories

Rounded up a few accessories and shoes on my radar. One of my favorite styles of Celine 50mm Sunglasses is on sale in a Matte Black/Smoke option on sale for $299.99 (regular price $450). Colors I have aren’t part of the sale but if you want to see them in action, I’m wearing them in Havanna Brown here and Milky White here.

_________________

Home

Last a look at some things for the NSALE Home. You girls know I’m obsessed with Barefoot Dreams and they have lots of new colors and designs that are part of the sale. Out of all the styles I’ve tried my favorite is the CozyChic Throw ($97.90 on sale, regular price is $147) for the softest most stretchy material. They’re all equally soft, but some have a tighter weave which makes them a little more dense/thick.

For the pets, they have the CozyChic Leopard Dog Sweater ($29.90 on sale) and Leopard Pet Bed ($98.90 – $111.90 on sale depending on size).

We kept the little sweaters we bought for Lucy the past two years although I had to put them away in a drawer because they made us so sad every time we saw them (RIP Lucy girl).

Spring Beauty Haul Picks from Sephora

April 8, 2022

Sephora Spring Beauty Haul

It’s been a whirlwind of a couple weeks! If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen why! I hope to get back to regular posting soon. I have a Sephora haul with some quick first impressions of what I bought. I haven’t been able to try everything I hauled from the Spring Savings Event but did swatch most of my order.

Use code SAVESPRING at checkout to save. You can use the code multiple times throughout the event! The access dates and details for each tier:

  • Rouge Members save 20% off 4/1 – 4/11
  • VIB Members can save 15% off 4/5 – 4/11
  • Insiders save 10% off 4/7 – 4/11

Sephora Spring Beauty Haul

Base Picks: Rare Beauty + It Cosmetics

Rare Beauty Positive Light Tinted Moisturizer + It Cosmetics CC+ Nude Glow

I hauled two makeup bases and both are hits. The Rare Beauty Positive Light Tinted Moisturizer is a really nice sheer coverage tinted moisturizer that has a dewy finish but isn’t too dewy. I absolutely love it and found a good match to 32N in store (I also picked up 34W because I know I’ll get tan very soon).

I also ordered the new It Cosmetics CC+ Nude Glow Lightweight Foundation. I ordered Medium Tan sight unseen and it’s a perfect match. I prefer this formula to the Regular CC+ Cream because the formula seems to be easier to work with and looks more natural on my skin. Color-wise the Nude Glow runs a bit deeper than the Regular CC+ Cream. I have Medium Tan in both and the Nude Glow formula works perfectly for me. For the regular version I will need to order Neutral Tan color soon.

Also available on the It Cosmetics website if your shade is sold out, they have sales and good GWPs there on their website!

Face/Cheeks

 

I ordered the new Fenty Rihanna Sun Stalk’R Face + Eye Bronzer Highlighter Palette and I love the overall concept and look. On my arm the colors swatched very patchy. I’m hoping it performs better on the face since the online reviews so far are positive.

Fenty Rihanna Sun Stalk’R Face + Eye Bronzer Highlighter Palette

The new Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Blushes have been in rotation lately so I picked up another color during the sale. These take a little extra work to blend for me since they have a unique formula that dries/sets quickly on me. I apply on the apples with a Tom Ford foundation brush and blend quickly. Once they set they stay put on me. I like Southbound the best which is a soft pink color.

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Blush swatchs

Tom Ford Sheer Cheek Duo in Eclat Nu just arrived and I absolutely love it. It’s sold out at Sephora right now but I’m hoping it will restock before the sale ends! This reminds me of their previous duo in Lissome but I haven’t had a chance to swatch/compare. I think it’s a really stunning subtle duo for spring to summer. I wish they would add more options for us with this because the formula is one of my favorites! This one has a peachy nude color for one half and a pink on the other side. It’s naturally glowy in the best way.

Tom Ford Sheer Cheek Duo in Eclat Nu

Eye Makeup

Tarte Quick Stick Waterproof Shadow and Liner

I hauled quite a few eye products! Picked up two of the Tarte Quick Stick Waterproof Shadow and Liner in Rose Gold/Brown and Taupe Luster/Black and love these so much I’m going to order more. These are dual-ended pencils. One side you have a cream shadow that is easy to blend and smudge with fingers. The other side has a creamy liner that is ultra pigmented.

I restocked the Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerize Cream Shadow in Champagne and love this for an all over wash of shimmer.

Tarte + Charlotte Tilbury swatches

Since I love the original Patrick Ta Major Dimension Eyeshadow Palette I knew I had to order the new Patrick Ta Major Dimension II Rose Eyeshadow Palette and I am absolutely obsessed. I don’t always love rose tones for eyes but this one is wearable and really pretty. The sparkle toppers are best applied with a finger in a patting motion for me, otherwise it’s too glitzy. Overall vibe seems to be more fall than summer (to me) but I still love it.

Lips

Makeup by Mario Ultra Suede Sculpting Pencils

I picked up more of the Makeup by Mario Ultra Suede Sculpting Pencils (new shades) in Toasty, Tan, Almond and Smokey Pink. Formula seems to be just as good as the first round of shades. As soon as I saw more shades pop up I ordered them immediately. I haven’t had a chance to play with them on the lips yet but swatches look like they’re my kind of colors! Other shades swatched here.

Tarte launched a Maracuja Juicy Lip Plump and they’re gorgous. I actually purchased these from the Tarte Cosmetics website a few weeks ago but bought a back up from Sephora. The shades are mostly sold out online at Sephora now but I highly recommend looking for them at the Tarte Cosmetics website. They usually have good sales too! Formula has a slight plumping effect with a minimal tingle. Pigment is sheer-medium with a glossy finish. I’m wearing Cherry Blossom in this post.

Skincare + Hair

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask + Glowy Lip Balm

For lip treatments I decided to try the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in Vanilla. I didn’t like the original because it was too sweet but this Vanilla one is a lot better for me. I recently fell in love with the Laneige Glowy Lip Balm in Grapefruit so I ordered Gummy Bear and am obsessed. It smells delicious and I love the texture.

I also ordered the NARS Orgasm Lip Mask which I tried briefly today. I like it but it’s too early to say if I love it. It comes in a pot style and I would much rather it be in a squeeze tube or stick but it felt comfortable on the lips with a smooth feel!

Also ordered the Sol de Janeiro Beija Flor Elasti-Cream (it’s a Maison Francis Kurkdjian Baccarat Rouge dupe) and picked up the new Tatcha Clarifying Clay Mask Exfoliating Pore Treatment which I am really excited to try.

Sephora Sale Haul Picks

Last one I want to mention is the K18 Biomimetic Hairscience Leave In Hair Mask which I hauled too. I tried the mini a few times and really liked it! I don’t know that I’d call it life changing or super unique but I liked it enough to buy the full size!

Did you haul anything fun from the Sephora sale? Or did you find any other good sales going on that you took advantage of? Seems like a lot popped up in my inbox this week but I didn’t have a chance to look at them!

The Sephora sale runs through 4/11 so there is still time to shop!

Happy Thanksgiving to you! Grateful for so many things even though this year has been a challenge. Particularly grateful to each and every one of you who continue to read my blog, follow me on social, send me the sweetest messages and thankful for your support. I still pinch myself every now and then. Some days I cannot believe that I am able to do what I love (this blog). Happy to be able to connect with beauty junkies like myself around the world.

I’ve rounded up what I feel are the Best Black Friday Sales to shop this year. I went through my full list and edited it down to the sales I think are worth exploring.
