The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale bas officially begun, and there are BIG beauty savings to be had this year. Today marks the Sale’s Preview event, reserved for Nordstrom cardmembers, but the sale will open to everyone else on Thursday, August 13. Plus, the retailer is also hosting a beauty extravaganza that will feature daily deals, virtual events, beauty exclusives and more beginning August 19. Check out some of our favorites—and biggest steals—from the sale below and scoop them up before they’re gone!
Laura Mercier’s Translucent Loose Setting Powder is a makeup artist staple, giving skin up to 16 hours of matte wear without camouflaging skin’s natural radiance. In this Anniversary Sale set, it’s married with Pure Canvas Primer, which blurs imperfections and absorbs excess oil underneath makeup.
Think of this set as the ultimate makeup sandwich: primer below and powder on top for flawless-looking skin, no matter its tone.
Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip Secrets ($68, Value $91)
Charlotte’s Pillow Talk phenomenon—perhaps the best pink-nude on the market—now extends to her Collagen Lip Bath product, too. This three-piece set with a full-size liner, lipstick and lip gloss is everything you need to create that plump, natural, “your lips but better” look.
Lancôme Advanced Genifique Trio ($159, Value $236)
Although the brand’s Genefique line touts anti-aging claims, it delivers benefits for skin of all ages, whether you’re in your 20s, 60s or anywhere in between. This trio includes two full-size bottles of the Youth-Activating Concentrate and a travel-size eye cream.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Bae-Sics Brow Kit ($27, Value $47)
A Nordstrom Anniversary Sale exclusive, this kit contains two full-size brow essentials that are also the brand’s hero products: Brow Wiz and Clear Brow Gel. Together, they can fill, define and set to add a youthful frame to the face.
Dr. Barbara Sturm Anti-Aging Essential Set ($215, Value $355)
An incredible value and chance to try three of Dr. Sturm’s best-sellers, this kit contains a travel-size Super Anti-Aging Serum, which diminishes signs of inflammation; a travel-size Hyaluronic Serum to intensely hydrate; and a travel-size Night Serum, which rejuvenates skin as you sleep.
Bobbi Brown Full-Size Extra Lip Tint Duo ($29, Value $58)
“We’re all obsessed with these lip balms—they give you a little pop of color, a healthy glow throughout the day and a lot of hydration,” and Megan Ochs, regional beauty manager at Nordstrom. “This set is always a best-seller and you can’t beat the two-for-one price we have. The two shades included are Bare Pink, and new Bare Rose, which is exclusive to Nordstrom.
Olaplex Bond Maintenance System Set ($84, Value $126)
Olaplex is new to the Anniversary Sale, and this trio is a game-changer for color-treated or constantly heat-styled/damaged hair. A jumbo size of the cult-favorite No. 3 Hair Perfector is joined by two full-size products: No. 4 Bond Maintenance Shampoo and No. 5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner.
Riki Loves Riki’s RIKI Skinny Lighted Mirror in Rose Gold ($130, Value $205)
Exclusive to Nordstrom, this ultra-lightweight LED magnifying mirror with phone-clip attachment makes selfies and beauty tutorials easier than ever to achieve with professional-looking—and filter-free flattering—lighting. Plus, there’s a Bluetooth selfie function that pairs the mirror with your phone—it’s basically a beauty junkie’s dream!
NuFace FIX & Mini Facial Toning Device Set ($233, Value $348)
Kevin Sifflet, regional beauty director at Nordstrom, says this device is “like a personal trainer for your skin, but you don’t have to do any of the work.” It’s also a 2020 NewBeauty Award winner (the full-size version) and cult-classic editor favorite.
Exclusively for the Nordstrom sale, NuFace is pairing its line-smoothing Fix device in a pretty coral color with its Mini device in one set (with the priming gels).
Bio Ionic 10x Pro Ultralight Speed Dryer ($199, Value $295)
Take note of the massive discount on this must-have dryer that feels so lightweight, yet it somehow manages to deliver heavy-duty drying power in hardly any time. The EcoDrive motor uses 75-percent less energy than typical dryers, and it’s infused with natural volcanic mineral, which allows it to emit negative ions that add shine to the hair as it dries.
diptyque Set of 5 Travel Size Limited Edition Scented Candles ($55, Value $75)
“What’s great about these candle sets is that they’re low commitment because you can try different scents without buying one large candle in a single scent,” says Sifflet. “For $55, you’re getting five individually wrapped candles in the brand’s most popular fragrances. You can give one to a friend, or use them in different rooms to set different moods. They’re also great for stocking stuffers at the holidays.”
Founder Jamie O’ Banion’s father is a dermatologist and the inspiration behind her products and passion to bring in-office treatments into our homes. This jam-packed set includes a rose gold GloPRO microneedling device with an added eye attachment, a full-size Ultimate Moisturizer and Bright Eyes eye patches.
La Mer Mini Hydration Collection ($90, Value $155)
“We cannot do Anniversary Sale without La Mer—it’s one of my favorite sets every year,” says Sifflet, noting that it’s a great way to try different products from the brand before you invest in the full-size versions. “It’s La Mer under $100.”
And exclusively for the sale, Nordstrom is offering two options: One for drier skin with the original Crème de la Mer, Treatment Lotion, Renewal Oil and Illuminating Hydrator; the other includes a Soft Cream instead of the Creme de la Mer for a slightly lighter finish.
