press sample, bought by me, affiliate links

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally open to all shoppers and if you haven’t had a chance to shop yet, I’ve got the goods on all the best makeup exclusives from this years sale.

I teased you a bit last week with the must-have NARS Private Paradise Collection and I showed you my Nordstrom Anniversary Wishlist as I do every year. Now I want to talk just makeup and the best makeup exclusives from this years sale.

Nordstrom and the best beauty brands team up to bring beauty exclusives galore to the sale and sometimes they make my head spin.; there is just so much to choose from. Some of the sets seem repetitive from year to year, but they know what works and sells, and there is no arguing with that. Plus, the deals can’t be beat.

Again, there were originally a lot more makeup exclusives available in the beginning of the sale, but many of these exclusives sold out in the cardholder pre-sale and as soon as the sale opened to the public. I am actually amazed at how much sold out so quickly this year.
