The 12 Beauty Products Not To Miss From The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – Forbes

If youve been holding off on restocking your medicine cabinet shelves or your makeup bag, now is the moment. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends this Saturday, August 30 and while some of the star products sold out during the early access phase, there are still plenty of worthy steals to be found.

While Sephora, Ulta, Dermstore and others all run annual sales, none of them can hold a candle to the deep discounts on top beauty products found during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. The department stores annual sale is one of the only beauty sales to mark down a slew of best-sellers as well as brand-new products, meaning its the perfect time to snag latest-technology beauty devices as well as stock up on products you use frequently.

There are plenty of haircare and make-up products to add to your shopping cart (see highlights from Oribe, Briogeo, Becca and Charlotte Tilbury below), and the skincare selection should not be missed. Look for minis from ultra-luxe brands like La Mer and Doctor Barbara Sturm, or round out your skincare regimen with best-sellers from Kate Somerville, and Kiehls.


While some scrubs can strip the skins protective barrier, this formula from Kate Somerville combines lactic acid with honey and vitamin E to polish without drying. Its gentle enough for most skin types and is formulated without sulfates or phthalates. You only need a pea size amount each time, so this 5 oz bottle will last you well through the fall and winter.

British makeup darling Charlotte Tilbury's best selling gilded eyeshadows are now available in a three piece set: two cream-to-sheen eyeshadows and one volume-enhancing mascara come together to make the perfect soft golden eye. The darker shade, called Star Gold, has a rich coppery hue which looks great as all-over color or smudged into the crease of your lid, while the lighter Golden Eclipse adds a lovely wash of light shimmer.

Bouncy curls and loose waves at home have never been easier than with this technologically advanced curling iron, which recognizes each section of your hair in order to use the correct amount of heat. (In the market for a straightener instead? This GHD styler is designed with a similar technology and is also on sale.)

This gentle liquid cleanser is a great one-size-fits all option: it whisks away makeup and grime without upsetting the pH balance of your skin. Sensitive and dry types will love the soothing addition of apricot kernel oil, vitamin E, and avocado oil, too. Plus, its a concentrated formula, so this jumbo size will last for months.

Briogeos quenching clean hair care line is a favorite amongst folks with curly, kinky, or frizzy locks or anyone with color-treated hair that could use some extra TLC. This kit includes a full size 8 fl oz tub of the popular Don't Despair, Repair! Conditioning Mask, as well as a full size Farewell Frizz Rosarco Milk Leave-In Conditioning Spray. It also includes a travel size Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Scalp Scrub Shampoo, which is a weekly treatment that combats product build up or itchy, flaky scalp build up.

Lash serums are having a moment: with former extension fanatics taking a break during Covid and the idea of applying mascara (and taking it off) day in and out seeming a little tedious, the allure of plumped up natural lashes has never been stronger. This serum from NeuLash relies on hydrating sodium hyaluronate, amino acids, and peptides to lengthen and strengthen.

As much as La Mer has a reputation for excellence, it can be hard to not balk at the steep price tags. This set of soothing and moisturizing minis gives you both the opportunity to find your cant live without product from the storied French brand and provides a pretty discount. The gold standard Crme de La Mer is included of course, alongside a fast-absorbing treatment lotion, which relies on the brands proprietary Miracle Broth to hydrate and tone. Also included is the regenerative Renewal Oil and a highlighter, called the Hydrating Illuminator, which gives skin a lit-from-within glow.

This translucent setting powder extends the life of your makeup without any dryness or powdery texture, thanks to its lush, mist-like feeling on skin (the formula is made up of 50% water and glycerin to add moisture). While its nearly translucent, it does come in two flattering shades the original, a pale peachy tone, and the golden bronze, a deep caramel color.


This is the perfect set for those days when youre trying to stretch your shampoo but you still need to hop on Zoom meeting after Zoom meeting. The Gold Lust Dry Shampoo absorbs oil without adding grit or residue, while the Dry Texturizing Spray adds shape.

British makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury is known for her soft, sultry, vaseline-lensed beauty looks so its no surprise that her best selling Pillow Talk lipstick would end up being the enhanced nude for thousands of women (including Gwenyth Paltrow and Kate Moss.) The light, pinkish mauve lipstick has a creamy consistency that plumps and moisturizes, with a buildable hue. This kit comes with the original lipstick as well as a liner and gloss in the same shade, for creating every possible rendition of pillowy, pink lips.

Living Proofs Perfect Day hair care line is a cult favorite for a reason it delivers manageable and moisturized hair without phthalates, silicone, or oils. This three piece set is a great option for anyone with low maintenance hair who just wants an effective straightforward routine and big enough bottles that they wont have to refill anytime soon. For $99, you get a 24 oz set of shampoo and conditioner, plus a dry shampoo to stretch styles.

If youve wondered about Dr. Barbara Sturms beloved skincare line but had sticker shock each time, this starter trio is the way to go. At $215, its still pricey but each of the anti-aging serums are meant to be applied just a few drops at a time (and, they work best in unison.) Start with the Super Anti-Aging Serum, a calming, regenerative mix of anti-inflammatory purslane and antioxidant rich skullcap. Then, dab on the Hyaluronic Serum to quench skin. And finally, pat on the Night Serum, which also relies on hyaluronic acid, this time mixed with plankton extract to reduce fine lines and senna alata to repair skin.
