Just (the best) Sales & NSale Beauty Picks

Hi friend! I hope you are having a wonderful week!  It’s been busy over here #adulting, purchasing new, necessary appliances for the house.

First, I had to replace my washing machine a few months ago, and I just ordered a dryer, plus a new fridge. The fridge was 11 years old and the washer/dryer was probably 15, so I’m just happy they lasted this long.

And, our fence and attached vine greenery was damaged in the Houston storm and I’m just now getting it replaced.  I’m also sprucing up my backyard patio and can’t wait to share that with you soon!


Every Wednesday, I scour the internet to bring you great deals on things you might love, want, or need. Here’s what I found this week.

Top (ON SALE)Shorts (ON SALE) Sandals

I never tire of hoodies and this one by Free People comes in the prettiest shade of green with a sporty zip front. Now 40% off!

These Zella leggings are the cutest and you can’t beat the price. Now $34!

Ali-Shaun and I shopped for Fall fashion (see Part 1 here & Part 2 here), then I went back to the beauty counters and found so many good deals!

Anastasia Brow Duo

Anastasia is the QUEEN of brows, and her brow pencils come in a fine tip- easy for getting those hairlike strokes, the color is good and they’re easy to apply.

I like how her brow pencils twist up for more product (no sharpening mess) and have a convenient spoolie at the end for brushing your browns in place.  I use the color “soft brown.”

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Mario Badescu

When I have a blemish, one dot of the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion before bed dries it right up!  This set also includes the facial spray and rose lip balm.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale St. Tropez Self Tanner

If you like to have a natural looking (sun-free) tan, St. Tropez is what you need!  After trying it for the first time a few months ago, it’s all I use!  I love the mousse formula that goes on easily and doesn’t streak.  This is a jumbo size, and you’ll save $38!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Oribe Texturizing Spray & Dry Shampoo

Y’all know I can’t live without my Oribe Texturizing Spray.  It takes my hair from boring to bam.  See how I style my hair here.  And this set includes the dry shampoo too.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Olaplex

Olaplex is another Must Have, especially since I color my hair and use heat on it a lot.  It’s the only product formulated to repair hair from the inside out.  I also use the shampoo and conditioner and this set includes all three.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Nuelash

I’ve been out of  Neulash Lash Serum for a long time, but I’m excited to use it again because I saw good results in the length of my lashes when I was using it before.  This rarely goes on sale, so $100 off is a great deal.

I have this First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream in my bathroom drawer and like to use it on my hands before bed.  It’s rich and very soothing and also helps with skin conditions like eczema.  I haven’t tried the eye brightening cream, but it has niaminacide for brightening, hydrating, smoothing and reducing dark circles.

My favorite lash primer is by Lancome and this Lancome Lash Kit also includes two full size mascaras, the lash primer and makeup remover.  I like that remover because the lid of the bottle is shaped to fit a qtip into it and then you use it to gently remove any excess eye makeup.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Laura Mercier Setting Powder

Laura Mercier Setting Powder is what I use to set my concealer and I like how it goes on matte and feels light as air. This set comes with a full and travel sized powder, and a velour powder puff.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Detox Dry Shampoo

Detox Dry Shampoo is one  I’ve used and repurchased. It dissolves into my hair easily.  This bottle is jumbo size!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Bio

I’ve gotten away from using my Beauty Bio GLOPRO microneedler since I’ve been using Retin-A, but I loved this product when I used it more frequently. I wrote a whole post about how it works, how to use it, and the benefits here.  During the NSale, you’ll save about $175 on the set!

You can’t go wrong with MAC lipsticks.  They have great pigment and staying powder, with no weird smell, and you can get a variety of finishes – matte, cremesheen, satin, etc.  This lipstick set includes 5 travel-size shades, all of them very wearable, including the bold red “Ruby Woo” I wear when I’m feeling extra.  It’s especially good during the holiday season!

You can always break up the set and put them in stockings if you want to gift them.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Nest Candles

I love to gift a nice candle as a hostess gift and everyone always appreciates it so much.  These two smell so fresh and amazing!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Women's Perfume

I typically stick with my Brazilian Crush Body Spray or Chanel Chance, but these two fragrances were my fave that I sampled at the store: ChloeBurberry.

Do you have a signature scent?  I’d love to hear what it is!  I also bought the GHD curling iron and can’t wait to try it!  Did you have any beauty Must Haves that aren’t on my list?  Please share!

Have a fantastic day friends!
