There are few sales that are worthy of setting an iCal reminder for, but one that will forever hold a spot on our calendar is Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale. The department store chain’s annual sale is one of the best times to score great deals on luxury beauty products that, at full price, might normally languish on our “want to buy” list—or at least make us think twice before pulling out our credit cards. The best part? These are products that generally aren’t discounted. Sure, normally with a purchase you might get a travel-size product or other “gift” thrown in (how many more makeup bags must we collect?!), but as far as cold hard cash coming off the price tag? That barely ever happens.
For 2019’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, a ton of the best luxury beauty products out there have been discounted or assembled into some truly incredible curated sets selling at exclusive prices: Think brands like Kiehl’s, La Mer, and Urban Decay, plus discounts off of fragrances. Of course, going through and trying to decide what you want to buy could practically be a part-time job, which is why we’ve gone through and done the shopping for you. We’ve rounded up 12 of the best luxury beauty buys from the sale, from a La Mer set that’s bound to sell out to our favorite Charlotte Tilbury lip kit.
