Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Top Picks | Beauty

What is probably the most anticipated sale of the year, is upon us, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale! This sale is all over social media (every summer) and so I figured I would share the items that I would recommend from the sale. I personally, will not be picking up much this year (fingers crossed), but there are some good deals to be had! Since the sale is so large, I’ll be breaking these posts up based on category. Today, I’ll be sharing my beauty/fragrance picks.


These Parfums de Marly Disovery sets are a great way to try out some of the most popular fragrances from the brand without shelling out over $300 on a single bottle! Both the feminine and the masculine sets are on sale for $85 each.

Another fragrance set worth checking out is this one from Tom Ford that includes travel sprays of Black Orchid and Ombre Leather. Both of these fragrances are heavy hitters, so it would probably take you awhile to make it through these 10ml travel sprays.

So, yeah, more fragrances! What can I say, the fragrance deals really caught my attention this year! YSL Libre is a newer fragrance that has been getting a lot of fan-fair. I personally don’t own this one, but I know that so many people love it! If you are interested, this set includes a full sized 3oz bottle and 0.34oz travel spray for $112 (valued at $160).

I know the Makeup Eraser was all the hype a few years ago, but they actually work pretty well as a first step in removing makeup. This set includes 10 of them in different colors for $30.

If you didn’t know, Maison Francis Kurkdjian has released some of their best selling fragrances in smaller bottles. For the Anniversary Sale, Nordstrom will have Baccarat Rouge 540 ($180) and Gentle Fluidity Gold ($135) available. I know those prices may seem high, but compared to the full size bottles, they are actually priced pretty well! I happen to love both scents. Baccarat Rouge is a very unique, powerful fragrance that will make you stand out. Gentle Fluidity Gold is more of an everyday scent, but it is so beautiful and very addictive!

I’ve heard great things about the NARS Lip Oils and the 2 colors that are being offered in this set look right up my alley. I will probably pick up this set for myself!

This is one item that I am definitely picking up, the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. I picked up this same jumbo (6.7oz) bottle last year during the sale, and I’m just finishing it!!! This is my go-to moisturizer for day. It’s simple, but it keeps me hydrated without making me feel greasy. They also have a version (HERE) targeted for more normal to dry skin.

Last year, I also picked up this PMD Facial Cleansing Device and I’ve used it at least 3 days a week since then. I like the shape and feel of this cleanser. I also like that it is silicone as opposed to a traditional brush. You never have to change the brush head and my batteries just died about a week ago (for the first time) after using it for almost a year!

Lastly, I thought I might mention something for the men. This fragrance gift set of YSL Y is a great price and I personally love the way it smells. My husband wears this scent and I think it makes a great everyday scent for a man.

So those are my top picks for beauty & fragrance from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Do you have your eye on anything?
