5 Beauty Picks from the Nordstrom Sale

The Nordstrom sale is here!! Yes, we do get most excited about the clothes, shoes, and handbags at major discounts, but don't forget about beauty! There are 5 products that have caught my eye–many at a great deal, and some come with some major gifts with purchase! Click on the products in the graphic above, or shop them below!  

Mario Badescu anti aging kit

From the maker of that infamous pink drying lotion (which I can't recommend enough) comes an anti aging kit I've got my eye on. Being almost 27 (eek!) I've been on the hunt of some anti aging products that I can start using now to keep my skin looking young and fresh, and I think this might just be "the one." They have amazing products for all types of skin, include an acne starter kit ($40 value for $30) and a beautiful skin set (an $84 for $48!). 

Lancome 'Miracle Cushion' liquid compact

I don't know why I'm so intrigued by this spongey compact, but I've heard it's nothing short of flawless. It's supposed to give you fabulous coverage in a dewy, lightweight formula. Sign me up! Plus, spend $50 on any Lancome products and you'll receive a majorly amazing gift with purchase: deluxe samples of La Base Pro Pore Eraser, Advanced Skin Corrector, and Cils Booster XL Mascara Base! 

Beauty Blender

This little gem has taken the beauty world by storm. I'm still stuck in the stone age of applying my foundation with a foundation brush, but the beauty blender promises much better coverage! The base is great for applying to larger areas of the face, while the pointed tip is perfect for blending in smaller places, like your under eyes. Wet it before you apply your foundation, and it will give you a glowing finish. You can apply powder with it, too. 

MAC Prep & Prime highlighter

A perfect tool if you're going for a highlighted and contoured look, but also works perfectly as a primer for your under eyes when layered under concealer! 

MAC 'navy Times nine' eyeshadow palette

When it comes to eyeshadow, I'm not much of a color girl, but navy and brown hues have always been what I gravitate toward. It's rare to find a palette that contains only colors that you actually love, but this one fits the bill! I also love that includes a dark powder, which I use as eyeliner with a liner brush. Mac eyeshadows continue to be my favorite, thanks to their dark hues and staying power. 

Amazing Grace fragrance set 

Fun fact? I've actually loved this scent since high school! (Along with Ralph by Ralph Lauren, but we won't talk about that.) It's amazingly fresh, light, and just smells like that feeling you get when you crawl into bed into cool, clean sheets. You know what I mean? It's a perfect daytime scent, so when I saw this set that includes the shampoo/body wash/bubble bath (it's all three in one!), lotion, and eau de toilette all in one, for just $39, I did a double-take!
