Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Life of the loan.


Wrapping up a work event having a trip to Eaton Centre was a terrible idea. I was passing by simply Nordstrom when I realized why it was so busy on a common weekday – it was the long-awaited Nordstrom Birthday Sale! I had to do a research session on it but the gist could be the sale is an opportunity to get up-and-coming launches as well as Nordstrom Exclusive solutions at a sale price (20-50% off retail) before they go back up on August 7. At the same time, some makeup counters were definitely also offering gifts with purchase, and makeovers thus it’s a great opportunity to look at what’s new and popular!

I am starting to warm up to Nordstrom – it’s less stuffy than Hudson’vertisements Bay, and way fewer snobby than Holt Renfrew. I don’t feel like someone’s going to give me an attitude when I need to ask a question at Nordstrom! I like that they have from the mid-range brands like MAC, Clinique, Anastasia Beverly Hills to the top of the path like Bobbi Brown, La Mer, Sulwhasoo. Let’azines just hope shopping certainly, there doesn’t become a regular habit…

Going inside, I knew I wanted so you can get value sets – they’re my favourite kind of purchases as you get to be able to sample multiple products in one go and have more “toys” to play using. I saw some awesome value sets like a NARS 4-piece full-sized Lip Pencil for $75 and 2 full-sized Anastasia Beverly Foothills Brow Gel for $29. It’vertisements really easy to get carried away inside the Nordstrom Exclusives value sets.

Both items I personally picked up are restocks – you’ve found them on the blog previous to so apologies if it seems to be boring.

Clarins UV 50 Sun screen lotion Multi-Protection Tint // $68 ($84 value; available at this point)
I repurchased the Clarins UV50 sunscreen since bottle is highly portable and straightforward to travel with. I had a decent experience with it although it left a little white cast over the skin. I like the more the liquid texture of it – doesn’t drink too much “slick” on the skin as it sinks inside! With a $64 purchase, you get a modest travel makeup bag with 5-6 samples inside.

MAC Cosmetics Lips Duo in Honeylove & Subculture // $34 ($42 price; available here)
I am sad to say, the most predictable person in regards to lip colours and this is an apparent example of that. Seeing that Apple pc had restocked their Lip Duos (that were initially available only to be a limited edition offering) I had to repurchase Honeylove the way it became one of my favourite tones and I appreciate the Back to Apple pc policy for free makeup!

I imagine I stayed pretty much on-budget these times. Now it’s time to start saving up for the holidays simply because we know how much of a lure that can be!

Did you purchase anything from this Nordstrom Anniversary sale?
