Buying beauty products has always been a tricky process for a few reasons. First, my skin can be fickle and sensitive, and then there’s the pressure of buying full size goodies that may not work. That’s where beauty boxes come into play. I recently subscribed to PLAY! by Sephora, so I can test out the best trending products before making a full commitment. And since doing so, I’ve been uber excited to see what’s coming each month. It’s seriously the best way to try new brands and products from skincare to makeup and fragrance to hair care.
I hope I prepped you enough with this post about Nordstrom’s Anniversary Salebecause Early Access is in full swing! One of the first things I like to stock up on are the beauty steals and deals. I spotted so many great products included in the sale and have a feeling they won’t last on the shelves. In today’s post I’m sharing a TON of my picks that I currently own and use on a regular basis. (I’ll also be posting a full IGTV video recap on my Instagram too!) I recommend shopping now, so you can mark everything off your list and update your beauty routine. Keep reading for the best beauty buys in this year’s Nordstrom sale!
I’m always looking for ways to keep my hair looking its best, and I leave it to the right products to help me achieve that. Brands like Aveda and Drybar have always been favorites, so I’m definitely stocking up on both of those! Also a favorite is Alterna, and there jumbo bottles are included in the sale!
I’m a true product junkie, so I’m really excited to see so many makeup sets exclusive to the sale – so you don’t want to miss out. With brands that rarely go on sale, like Charlotte Tilbury, Laura Mercier, Nars, and Lancome in the mix, it’s your chance to splurge on luxury makeup without regret.
Skincare products can get super expensive, so I like to take advantage of the sale to test out high-ticket skincare brands. I have my eyes on picks from Kate Somerville and Lancome. Plus La Mer is topping my list of sets to try.
If you have ever considered trying a professional-grade styling tool, this is the time! Quality heat tools are important so you can minimize damage and keep your hair healthy. Nordstrom covered the full spectrum of haircare tools in their sale with pro-quality blowdryers and irons – I use my T3 heat tools religiously!
There are so many new innovations in the skincare world that I’ve been meaning to try. I actually picked up the NuFace’s Facial Toning Device, and I’m also really interested in the microneedling set. My skin needs all the TLC it can get after all this traveling.
For my first IGTV video, I’m walking you guys through my skincare drawer to share the products I’m currently using + why I’m loving them so much! While I was thinking about doing this video, I also wanted to have a go-to post where all the products I discuss are linked for quick access. So below, I’m sharing my serums, exfoliators, masks, skincare tools and more. Head over to my Instagram (@apinchoflovely) (will go live around 5 pm CST on 7/8) and click the IGTV button in my bio to watch the full video!
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Australian Gold. The opinions and text are all mine.
My time outdoors don’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon, so I’ve been searching up a storm for the perfect sunscreen. (And with summer upon us, you should too!) Sunscreen is the one summer beauty product I swear by for minimizing sun damage, slowing down the aging process, and preventing sunburn. But, they’re not all created equal. I have always struggled with finding an affordable sunscreen that offers maximum protection without compromising my complexion. It wasn’t until I came across Australian Gold Botanical that I realized an amazing and budget-friendly sunscreen existed.
The Botanical collection features mineral sunscreen lotions and natural sprays all for under $20! To learn more about this lineup, keep reading!
Summer brings forth plenty of opportunities to experiment with new makeup trends and colors. Whether it’s glowing skin, sultry eyes, or a perfect pout, I’m always ready to tackle it all. One thing I’ve been really into is lip color! What’s great about lips this season are the different finishes. I don’t think there’s anything prettier than glossy lips with a hint of color, but I can also get on board with a fiery matte hue. The perfect pout can be challenging to pull off in humid weather when I’m constantly reaching for water or sipping the occasional margarita. But that’s not stopping me from enjoying the full range of gorgeous, colorful hues this season! Luckily, Clarins has us covered with two long-lasting lip colors I’ve been obsessed with!
