Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Your Cheat Sheet

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is utterly amazing, and if you have ever needed any product or thing in your life, I suggest stocking up now.

I recently previewed the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale beauty offerings and realized that somewhere in the middle of July I was doing my holiday shopping. The Voluspa candles were averaging out to $5-10 each (not kidding), CHANEL was cheaper than normal, Philosophy gift sets were basically free (not really, but, cheap), and I could hear little angels singing. Anyway, here’s what you need to know to get your Nordstrom Anniversary Sale on:

“Nordstrom is excited to announce their annual 2015 Anniversary Sale. It features unbeatable values on exclusive, limited-edition offerings from your favorite beauty brands, including Charlotte Tilbury, philosophy, Bobbi Brownand more! Shop the much-anticipatedsale early (July 9th–16th)by becoming a Nordstrom Rewards Member at The sale officially opens to the public on July 17th, running through August 2nd(while supplies last), on and in Nordstrom stores nationwide.”

So that’s the official mumbo jumbo put out by the officials, but here are the highlights:

1. Clarisonic. $64.80-212 for new, glorious Clarisonic cleansing devices to give you all the glory. Luxe brush heads, minis, the whole 9. Check here.

2. Voluspa candle trios, $29.50. Yes, they’re full size. Yes, they’re fab. Check here.

3. Kate Somerville Age Arrest Duo. Now $110, instead of $165. Amen. Here.

4. Kiehls ‘Power Wrinkle Reducing Solutions’ Set = cheap, and 4 products. It’s under $100 for a set of 4 big Kiehls products to keep you looking young and fresh. And with that discount, you can buy yourself a new bra. Here.

5. ‘Blame it on NARS’ Cheek palette. You guys, this is just getting silly. I’m not sure how they turned a $160 palette into $59 with free shipping, but they did. And I’m not one to argue with happiness. In the meantime, you can contour, highlight, and blush up all with this one palette and a couple good brushes. Worth every. single. penny. Available here.
