a few beauty products worth a look...

All of these products are part of the Nordstrom anniversary sale. These deals are amazing, y'all! Mostly because so many of these brands hardly ever go on sale, so this is a perfect time to stock up on jumbo sizes of your old favorites or to experiment with new hot products. Remember, if you are a rewards member, you can shop the sale now, but for the rest of us, just build your "wish list" on the website and wait for the sale to go live on the 17th! 

beautyblender 'must have' trio // a $56 value for $37
Have you ever applied foundation with a beauty blender? Let me just say: #gamechanger. It gives base makeup a natural, airbrushed finish. I have been using mine all spring and summer and can't seem to go back to a brush now. Remember, the trick is to wet the sponge until it doubles in size! Then kind of dry it off by squeezing it in a towel. Then use it to apply makeup! 

personal microderm device kit // a $179 value for $106
I did a review of this a few years ago (see it here) and I still love it. It's your best bet, as far as I know, for a microdermabrasion session you can easily do at home—pain free. It gives super radiant skin!

SK-II bestsellers set // a $287 value for $205
I've heard nothing but amazing things about SK-II products and this seems like the best way to try them, since it includes all the bestsellers. Each product in this set contains something called Pitera, which is a clear liquid rich in vitamins, amino acids, minerals and organic acids. It's supposed to help give firmer, clearer, more radiant skin!

Morrocan Oil products work so well on my fine, flat hair. It's surprising—you would think they would weigh down my type of hair, but it actually doesn't at all for me. Their products are expensive, but last forever since they are so concentrated. This set includes shampoo, conditioner, the oil treatment, and that cute bag.

st. tropez self tan bronzing mousse set // an $87.50 value for $49
My favorite self-tanner! This set includes the regular 13.5oz bottle, as well as a travel sized one, and two mitts—one for face and one for body. Trust me, the mitt makes all the difference! 

I've mentioned a million times on here how much I love this cleanser. It would take a long, long time to run out of this giant bottle. Plus, it comes with a smaller one that's perfect for travel or for keeping next to your sink! 

lorac the skinny eyeshadow palette // a $153 value for $15
Yeah I know, when I saw that value vs. price, I had to read it over again, too! I haven't tried this exact palette, but I've used Lorac's shadows before and loved them. Don't see how you could ever need much more than this one palette! $15?!

DL nail polishes are free of the five harmful chemicals often found in nail polish; Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor or DBP (Dibutyl Phthalate). Plus she never tests on animals. These polishes are formulated with Biotin and Green Tea Extract!

A few other things that caught my eye in the sale are the Clarisonic Mia (if you don't have one, what are you waiting for!?), the Evian facial spray set (I use this to finish off my makeup make it "melt" into my skin or for a mid-day refresher!), and the Dr. Lancer "The Method" Set (he is that famous dermatologist for tons of celebrities in hollywood!). Oh, also! This Murad set is worth a look. I've tried all the products and they are so good. 

You can shop all the beauty items in the Nordstrom sale here! There are SO MANY good deals. (Tell me in the comments if you plan to get any beauty products from the sale!)

  2. I've never tried the beauty blender but I'm thinking it's a must have :) Thanks for sharing !

  3. So far I have the Lorac palette and Philosophy cleanser on my wishlist, along with the bucket bag and Stuart Weitzman Mixitup boots. I'm not sure if I should go with the Mixitup or hold out for the 5050s...
