Okay, wow! This is part 2 of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Review (see the first post HERE). I purchased a lot of beauty items because a lot of them are exclusive to the sale – so if you want to try one don’t hesitate to order it! I have a couple of ‘misses’ that I am going to have to return bc they weren’t worth the money. ANYWHO, I am going to jump right in with the hits & let you all know why I love them (misses will be at the end.)

If there are ** by the product – it is a MUST have!

HITS from the #NSALE

#1 Charlotte Tilbury Lip Duo (Wearing the ‘Nude’) **

#2 NARS Blush Palette (includes a bronzer & a highlighter + all the blushes – so great if you want to not have a ton of stuff in your makeup bag!)

#3 Laura Gellar Highlighter Kit (Wearing this in the photos above)

#4 Charlotte Tilbury Blush & Bronzer ** (SO good!)

#5 Beauty Blender Set w/Bag & Cleaner (I love this cleaner.)

#6 Stila Stay All Day w/ Liquid Lip **

#7 Hourglass Palette w/ Bronzer, Blush, & Highlighter **(already own the bronzer – and love the other products for a natural, dewy, fresh look!)

#8 Sigma Cleaning Mat & Foundation Brush (this mat is so great!)

#9 LED Vanity Mirror (I use this thing daily!)


#1 Tom Ford Golden Rose Kit (It is $91 – and I didn’t like any of the products inside – I really didn’t like the mascara!)

#2 I have tried this lash serum a couple of times over the years and it does not work for me at all!

I am dying to try this tho – I have heard this mascara makes your lashes grow!

  3. I have a question. if we select something from your blog or liketkit and then put it in the cart for nsale and something different from another blog and put it in the cart are they both linked to each INDIVIDUAL. Or would have have to do two SEPARATE orders for it to work in both parties favor? Love that LEOPARD tray also!
