The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale begins July 22nd with early access (open to Nordstrom cardholders) this week, Thursday, July 14th. This annual sale offers up some of the best beauty buys and exclusives of the year. I'm super excited about this year's offerings. I was lucky enough to have a sneak peek at the exclusives have the top 10 beauty buys from this years sale that are not to be missed.

1. MAC Look In A Box Sunblessed Face Kit
This exclusive kit is filled with neutral shades, perfect for summer. Coming complete in a zip-top pouch it includes an eyeshadow, fluidline, mascara, and lipstick. $39.50

2. Bobbi Brown Bobbi on Trend Sultry Bronze Eye Set
I can never pass up the exclusive Bobbi Brown set and this eye set is amazing this year. Filled with six shades inspired by the beach, I love it! The set also includes a full-size eyeliner and mascara. ($149 value) $65

3. Laura Mercier Flawless Icons Eye & Cheek Palette
With eight shadows and two matte radiance powders (one a bronzer and one a highlighter) this palette is a must. It is perfect for summer travel and beyond. The colors are neutral and will work for everyone and can go from day to night. ($155 value) $65

4. philosophy purity made simple one-step facial cleanser duo
This is my favorite cleanser, hand down. This duo set comes with a super-size 32 oz version of the cleanser along with a 8 oz size to keep at your sink. I always buy two of these sets, and it lasts me all year long. ($79 value) $53

5. NuFACE Trinity Facial Toning Device
This facial toning device is one of my must-have beauty tools (I owe you a complete review) and now is the time to snag this device. This device tightens and tones the skin and helps to give my face a more lifted look. Normally $325 it is only $250 during the NSALE.

6. Clarisonic Mia White Sonic Skin Cleansing System
I've recommended the Clarisonic skin cleansing system more times than I want to count. This skin cleansing brush cleans your skin better than your hands, fingers, wipes or a washcloth ever well and it is SO worth the investment. The NSALE is one of the best times to purchase, especially when the regular price is $129, and this one is just $89. 

7. Charlotte Tilbury Instant Beauty Palette 5 Minute Face On the Go
I love all-in-on-palettes and Charlotte Tilbury does them right. I am new to her brand, so I am starting with palettes, and I like them. This palette is for The Dolce Vita Look and its simple to create with three shadows, two cheek colors, a bronzer and face highlighter. It also comes with aLegendary Lashes Mascara. ($147 value) $75

8. MAC Look in a Box Brush Kit
MAC's brush kit are always a superb value because you can usually get 5 or more brushes for the price of just one or two. There are two sets that are exclusives, and both are worth it. There is a Basic Brush Kit and an Advanced Brush Kit; each has five brushes. If I were to pick just one, I would recommend the Advanced Brush Kit. $39.50

9. Smashbox Photo Bombshell Color Collection
This five piece collection is a keeper and bigger than most of the exclusives. I'm buying this one for sure! It features a blush, bronzer and highlighter trio, an eyeshadow trio, eyeliner, mascara, and lipstick. The colors look to be pretty neutral and wearable by all. ($111 value) $54

10. NARS Nordstrom's Best Cheek Palette
There is no denying the NARS makes some of the best cheek products in the beauty business; this cheek palette is a must and a great value to boot. With four blush shades, the brands must-have highlighter, and bronzer, it's a no-brainer. ($124 value) $65
