Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 is Here!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018

It’s that time of the year: Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale kicks off 7/12 for cardholders and will be open to everyone on July 20th. The sale lasts through August 5th! I’m a long-time, loyal Nordstrom customer, and I always look forward to the sale–it’s when I try to do the “bulk” of my clothing shopping while also picking up some of the beauty exclusives. (You can peruse a recap of Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale Beauty Exclusives here.)

Here are some of the things I have my eye this year, based on what was shown in the catalog… would love to hear what you’re hoping to try or purchase!  Edited: Updated with what I actually bought!  And of course, I made it a triple points day…

Nordstrom Beauty Exclusives

Here’s what I ended up purchasing with respect to the beauty exclusives! I’m most looking forward to the Charlotte Tilbury’s Pretty Glowing Skin Palette (have really enjoyed her cheek products in the past) and am curious to see how it performs since it’s quite a big palette for the brand.  Though my mom is about 0% interested in beauty except as much as it relates to Temptalia (then she’s all ears), she has a deep affinity for La Mer’s original moisturizer (and no, Nivea, neither US nor European version, was a total dupe for her, though she’d have been happy to have the cheaper option!); all that is to say, I bought La Mer’s The Mini Miracles Collection for her to try.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

I do the majority of my clothing shopping during Nordstrom’s anniversary sale, so it’s usually a big haul for me… I wasn’t sure about this year’s sale but ended up getting caught up in the pink moment that seems to be happening in fall fashion.  I managed to resist the Badgley Mischka Coat (living in Arizona makes it hard to justify a new coat that’ll be worn a few days a year) that had me drooling. It does, in fact, get cool in the winter, so I snagged Leith’s Ribbed Shawl Cocoon Sweater in a pretty pink.

loved the Halogen Jersey Funnel Neck Top I got last year (in teal) — I find it draws attention to my waist, and while I’m not big on turtlenecks myself, this is just shy and doable — so I was pleased to see it again this year. I’m excited to see if the CeCe Tipped Bow Neck Sweater balances between cute and elegant on me.  Similarly, I’m on the fence on how flattering the Halogen Scallop Edge Sweater will be on me, but I’ve had good luck with the brand, and I like the way it looks on the model.

I’ve always wanted to try Tory Burch Ballet Flats (I mostly wear flats), and last year, I picked up a pair of Tory Burch pumps and sandals, which I’ve enjoyed since, so this year’s damage was on a pair in seashell pink.

20 Best Budget Makeup Products I’d Pay Double For

2018 Edition
The Best in Budget Beauty

While there are absolutely, high-quality luxury products that are worth the splurge, there are also more budget-friendly makeup and beauty favorites that are excellent that someone could have said they were mid-end or high-end, and I’d never question it (hence the “pay double for”).  These are some of my favorite cheaper makeup products that perform well, period–not “good for the price” or “good if you prep in 10 ways first”–just fantastic products that won’t break the bank.

What are your top three, budget-friendly beauty finds?

20 Luxury Beauty Products Worth the Splurge

2018 Edition
Splurge-Worthy Beauty Products

One of the questions I get asked often across products is whether something is “worth it” or not, and long-time readers will know that I’ll very likely answer that question with several follow-up questions… because “worth it” is subjective–someone who might spend $300 a year on beauty compared to someone who might spend $3,000 a year on beauty may have very different answers on whether something is worth it or not.

It’s also about what aspects of a product you prioritize, how it complements other products you own, as well as whether it’s the type of product you’d get a good amount of use out of. These are all very personal questions, so the reality is something that is “worth it” to me might not mean it is “worth it” to you!

That being said, “worth it” to me means that, despite owning a library’s worth of makeup products, these are products that impressed me, still impress me, and that I’d definitely have ruminating in my brain as products to revisit (you know, if I had a spare moment and was industrious enough to pull them out of the archives). Here are some of my very favorite, indulgent products that I felt were worth the splurge…

You’ll find a lot of products I’ve mentioned as favorites before, like Pat McGrath’s Decadence Palette (limited edition but still available; one of my all-time favorite palettes released, period), Tom Ford Beauty Nude Dip/Platinum (two shades I’ve been using for years), Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar (a highlighting/bronzing duo I’ve kept in my essentials drawer since it launched), and Chanel Jersey (one of my most-used blushes).

I use my simplehuman Sensor Mirrors daily–my last edition was the Pro, and I’m testing their newest out presently–and couldn’t get through my routine without one at this point!  Products like Viseart Bijoux Royal (I’m a jewel-toned kind of gal, you know?) and Natasha Denona Darya (for the most glow-tastic cheeks ever) are two palettes I’ve returned to over and over again.

What have been the most splurge-worthy products you’ve enjoyed?
