I know a thing or two about shopping for the best beauty deals, I learned from the very best – my beautiful mom! She taught me the importance of shopping when there is a gift with purchase, and when you can save by purchasing a larger item, it’s best to do so. To say I’m excited about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is an understatement, it’s one of my favorite sales of the year. You can really save on hair tools, beauty gadgets, the Clarisonic and more. I splurged a few months ago at the Sephora VIB Rouge Sale on new items I had been eager to try, but I must admit this Anniversary sale is tops! Have you had a chance to check it out?

Since many of the beauty exclusives featured at the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale are my favorites, today I’m excited to share a few of the TOP beauty must haves for everyone! I also shared a few must haves I’m buying and can’t wait to try. PS: Please check out these Anniversary Sale fashion must haves, fab fall shoes and home decor essentials! I will be adding to my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale tag throughout the sale!

The Best Beauty, Hair Tools, Gadgets At The 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!



This Yves Saint Laurent Lip Set is currently sold out BUT Nordstrom always restocks the day the sale officially starts. I bought the rebel nudes kit during the sale last year, and have never once regretted my purchase! The lipsticks are luxurious (they smell fantastic), and the lip gloss is phenomenal! This kit is an absolute must!



Just a few of my favorite lipsticks and lip glosses by Yves Saint Laurent, Mac, Buxom, Tom Ford and more! PS: This is my Chanel Vanity Tray that I absolutely adore!

The DRYBAR Tressed To Impress Collection is AMAZING! It includes my favorite The Tress Press Digital Styling Iron (flat iron), Hold Me Hair Clips,  The Chaser Shine Cream, Sparkling Soda Shine Mist, Triple Sec 3-in-1 Texturizer. I use the hold me hair clips every time I flat iron or curl my hair. They are the best hair clips I’ve ever used. My hair is very thick, and these clips actually hold my hair! I love that they’re bright yellow so I can’t lose them. That flat iron is fantastic as well. It has the power to straighten my thick, coarse, wavy, frizzy hair with ease. I absolutely LOVE it. I use the chaser shine cream after I flat iron or curl my hair. It’s such a great product and I love that it doesn’t weigh my hair down. You can’t go wrong with DryBar. I swear by their products as they’ve totally transformed my hair for the better. I never in a million years imagined that I’d be able to have my hair this long, I’ve always had to keep it at my shoulders because it would start looking like straw and was very stiff from all the product I’d put in it to calm it down. PS: If you have thick, wavy hair and looking for a few great hair products, I totally recommend the Sake Bomb Shampoo and Mudslide Hair Mask. They’re both my favorites!



In love with this DryBar Chaser cream, Moroccanoil, and the most important of all the fabulous hair clips! They are the best ever.

The LANCÔME Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover is my holy grail product. I have worn it since I was a teenager and can’t get enough of it. My eyes (and skin) are very sensitive, and this is the only eye makeup remover that doesn’t bother them. I have tried other makeup removers, and even tried coconut oil which just irritated my skin. Nothing in my humble opinion works as well as this product! I only buy the 13.5 size, which I am willing and happy to pay full-price for. During the sale you can also score a sample size too. 



Lancome is the best eye makeup remover set!

The La Mer Mini Miracles Set includes The Moisturizing Soft Cream and The Regenerating Serum. I love the moisturizing soft cream, it’s luxurious, smells amazing and will make your skin incredibly soft! I have dry skin and this is perfect.




Mac beauty kits are my absolute perfect! I love their lipsticks, eyeshadows (they’re my favorite), eyeliner, lip liners, and of course their brushes! I bought one of their brush kits a few years ago and use them all the time, especially when applying eyeshadow. Since I’m a huge fan of a nude lip, their eyeshadows, and brushes, here are a few Mac kits I’m LOVING!

The Sigma Innovation Duo is AMAZING! I bought this Sigma Spa Express Brush Cleaning Mat months ago, and I love it.

PS: It also includes the 3DHD Kabuki Foundation Brush.

I bought my first Clarisonic about six or seven years ago, and  don’t know what I’d do without it! These Mias are just a few of the Clarisonic’s on deep discount right now. You can also score amazing deals on brush heads. I swear by this Era Organics cleanser for my sensitive skin and my Clarisonic. They’ve made such a difference in my skin!










A few months ago I interviewed Sarah Potempa, she invented the Beachwaver curling iron that was used to create the glamorous waves we saw at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Here’s a link to the interview, and I also shared the video below if you’d like to see it! This amazing curling iron is a part of the sale!



Here are a few new beauty items I’m coveting from the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale:


T3 Featherweight 2 Hair Dryer White/Rose Gold. I love my T3 curling wand and I had a T3 flat iron for years that I absolutely loved, so I’m kind of partial to the brand. I’ve heard amazing things about this blow dryer! As someone who only air drys her hair, I’m thinking about giving this a go. I need a new hair dryer before winter with this thick mane 😉 and this one is at a fabulous price point with great reviews!



How pretty is the CHANEL ROUGE NUDE MOOD COCO GLOSS MOISTURIZING GLOSSIMER TRIO? Love these gorgeous nude shades!






I’m a sucker for beautyblender gift sets! They’re my go-to for my sensitive temperamental skin! haha








How fab are these colors? This Bobbi Brown Nude Lip Trio is stunning!



I have used Laura Mercier makeup off and on for years. I adore her tinted moisturizer and lip pencils; my mom uses her lip gloss and tinted moisturizer religiously. I have heard amazing things about her eyeshadows, and this kit is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Don’t you just adore these colors? I can’t wait to try the Laura Mercier Laura’s Eye & Cheek Palette!





I’m much more of a nude lip kind of girl, but I’d eager to try these berry shades from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Mini Lip Gloss Set for fall! They’re so inexpensive that they’d be an amazing gift for your mom, sister, aunt, cousin, friends, bridal party, etc and more!



We all need a great mirror when applying makeup! This fabulous best selling Touch XL dimmable LED makeup mirror is a must!




If you love Lancome mascara and Bi-Facil eye makeup remover as much as I do, you’ll LOVE this Lancome Lash Lovers Mascara Collection! It includes:

  • Full-size Cils Booster XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base (0.18 oz.)
  • Full-size Définicils High Definition Mascara (0.21 oz.)
  • Full-size Hypnôse Drama Instant Full Body Volume Mascara (0.22 oz.)
  • Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover (1.7 oz.)
  • Preview sample Monsieur Big Mascara (0.06 oz.)




Moroccanoil The Ultimate Hydration Collection. I love the MoroccanOil Treatment! I put some in my hair while it’s still damp before styling it. I’ve heard amazing things about the hydrating shampoo and conditioner! This kit is amazing since it includes all three and a shower milk hydrating body wash.




I’m not going to lie, I absolutely hate shaving! Last year I had every intention of buying this ILUMINAGE TOUCH Permanent Hair Reduction System but my dog Fred, who I feature all the time on Instagram and occasionally on the blog became very ill and almost died during the sale last year. Saving my pup was far more important to me than permanently reducing the hair on my legs, but this year this is definitely coming home with me!



As a migraine sufferer, I don’t use candles as fragrances tend to be a trigger for me. This is no fun because I always LOVED candles! I think these Voluspa Maison candles would make an amazing Christmas, birthday, hostess gift for friends, family, your coworkers, etc! I’ve heard they smell amazing and the containers are just so pretty.


Who doesn’t love a whiter smile? I must admit, I bought an electric toothbrush by a different brand during the holidays, and I think my regular toothbrush did a better job! I’ve heard great things about this Go Smile Sonic Teeth Whitening System and thinking about giving it a go.




The Magic Eraser Original & Mini Makeup Eraser Duo. I bought my mom the Original Makeup Eraser in pink a few years ago for my mom when it first came out. My beautiful mom is one of the pickiest people on earth, but she loves it! If I want to know if something really works, I always ask my mom, she won’t lie and she’ll always be honest. Sometimes too honest! 😉



St. Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse Set. As someone who used to frequent tanning booths, I don’t miss the skin damage, but I miss my bronze glow. I’ve heard amazing things about this self tanner!


PS: This set includes:

Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse (two at 4 oz. each)

Two Tan Applicator Mitts

Tote Bag
