Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Exclusives 2014 include these items that I deem “must-haves”!

butter LONDON, Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Exclusives

butter LONDON, Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Exclusives

The butter LONDON 10 piece set for only $49!  Ten gorgeous shades of color, bringing you to $4.90 per bottle of butter LONDON goodness.  Sold!

MAC Advanced Brush Kit, Nordstrom Beauty Exclusives

MAC Advanced Brush Kit, Nordstrom Beauty Exclusives

The MAC Basic Brush set is $49.50 for five MAC brushes.  I love MAC travel-sized brushes!  They’re a fraction of the price of a full-sized brush, but good enough to use daily.  Specifically I recommend the Advanced Brush Kit, because MAC’s Angled Foundation Brush is amazing.


The Laura Mercier Mini Lip Glace Set for $50 includes five shades of Laura Mercier Lip Glace for you to play with!  Shades include Daiquiri, Bare Pink, Whisper, Sweetheart, and Bonbon.

NARS Cheek Palette is $49, and includes bronzing powder in Laguna, Orgasm blush, and two limited-edition shades too!

Philosophy’s JUMBO sizes are such a steal!  I love to stock up on Purity during the anniversary sale, and the Purity Home & Away set includes a 32 oz. bottle of Purity, and an 8 oz. bottle of Purity perfect for travel or to perch in your shower.

GWPs to take note of:

Stock up on $45 or more of your Estee Lauder favorites to score the Anniversary GWP that includes skincare and an epic about of color!

With any $39.50 or more purchase of Lancôme, you’ll receive a GWP worth $140!
