Y’all it’s that time of the year again. It’s the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and DAMN have they stepped it up this year. As I aggressively filtered through the sneak preview, I realized WOW I can actually afford some of this stuff. There’s something about being a college student and shopping at Nordstrom that doesn’t match. I searched far and wide to come up with a list of affordable beauty specials that even college students can afford.
If you don’t know, every year, brands come up with special kits/palettes/sets exclusive to Nordstrom that are some serious deals. I have a love/hate relationship with makeup shopping because Sephora is overwhelming, but also I need to get shade matched. I found things that will work with every skin tone AND under 50 bucks, with a lot under 25! Just scroll over the product to get more details.
Laura Mercier Twist and Pout is the perfect neutral lipstick for every skin tone that is super work appropriate. It’s a perfect addition for the “nearly a real adult” section of your makeup.
LORAC Refined Romance Cheek and Eye Palette is only 19 bucks(!!!), and you’ll never travel with another palette again! The colors go from super wearable and work appropriate to night out glam. It’ll be just one less part of your suitcase that you’re overpacking.
Stila Stay All Day Set not only includes their legendary liquid liner (which normally is the price of the whole set, but also has an amazing liquid lipstick that is ready to end up in your purse with the other 900239483 nude lipsticks in there.
Living Proof’s ‘Perfect Hair Day’ Set is the most expensive item on this list but also so worth it. I’ve used a sample of the shampoo and conditioner and can’t make the plunge to by the normal size, so this set is perfect! Also, y’all, this dry shampoo though. You can use it after a workout and it looks like you took a shower. Which means, if you’re like me, you don’t have to plan your workout schedule around your hair washing days.
Beauty Blender set is an absolute steal because it’s 20 bucks for one but for 35 you get two and a cleaner. Blending sponges work wonders for your foundation but carry a lot of bacteria. With this set, you’ll be set for a long time. See what I did there.
Mario Badescu ‘The Icon, The Cult Favorite & The Hero’ Set is probably the item I’m most excited about. It’s an absolute steal with each product highly loved. Kylie Jenner swears by the drying lotion to get rid of any acne overnight and I concur.
What are you going to get from the Nordstrom Sale? Do y’all want to see more picks from the sale?
