Happy Friday! This week has been a full one…I almost have all of my classes ready to go for the fall semester (an excess of screen time doesn’t begin to describe it). I have been shooting new beauty like crazy, all the while chasing the most darling two year old everywhere (and she’s fast, I tell you!).
Before I embark upon the weekend for a bit of recuperation from the last few days, I am happy to announce that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now open for General Access…there are still many brilliant products in stock and I’ve rounded up some of my favorites to show you in this story.
Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of everything in action as well as the Bottom Line…
Still in Stock: My Final Beauty and Style Picks from the Nordstrom Sale
I’ve been buying Voluspa candles for many years even before the Picks from the Nordstrom Sale; the tins are beautiful and the candles always smell sophisticated and welcoming. The Voluspa Vermeil Set of 5 Mini Tin Candles. The set comes in five different colors and scents for optimum variety and while I plan to share a few with friends and family, it will be a challenge as I’m growing quite attached to them all.
I also supplemented my candle stash with a few of the Voluspa Saijo Persimmon Candles. I buy this particular version year round as they smell like a dream and make the best impromptu gifts for neighbors!
The Sisley All Eyes on Sisley Setis a sublime option picks from the Nordstrom Sale. Containing two full sized products–the L’Integral Anti-Age Eye and Lip Contour Cream (which, by the way, comes with its own rolling tool for precise and therapeutic application) and Eye Contour Mask–this set pampers the orbital area with powerful skincare benefits that smooth, brighten and restore with every application.
I deeply appreciate that the Contour Cream can be used to refine both the eye and lip areas (points for multitasking!) and I don’t travel anywhere without my Eye Contour Mask. It adds instant moisture and vitality for tired eyes on contact.
While on the subject of Sisley-Paris, I need to show you swatches of these five opulent Le Phyto-Gloss shades! Ultra reflective and wildly plush, the gloss comes in both cream and satin finishes in a chic array of pale, neutral and vibrant tones…I wear the pearlescent Moon like crazy and predict that the radiant mauve Twilight will be the color of fall.
The Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip Secrets Set contains the Pillow Talk Liner (I’m on #5 of this wonder…that speaks volumes), the original Pillow Talk Lipstick (in my opinion, the best) and the Collagen Lip Bath in Pillow Talk, which increases volume while imparting a rich rosy nude shine.
The Charlotte Tilbury Glowing, Gorgeous Eye Secrets Set includes the Eyes to Mesmerize Cream Shadow (renown for its ability to resist creasing while wearing evenly for hours) in two exclusive shades: the warm gold Golden Eclipse and Golden Bronze Star Gold. I’ve been a fan of Star Gold since its release a couple of years ago. So, I am thrilled that Charlotte decided to bring it back for this special set. One of my top 3 mascaras of life also comes in this set. This includes The Legendary Lashes Volume 2 Mascara, which lengthens and volumes for a false lash effect. Also, I appreciate that it doesn’t smudge. This is even on my allergy-ridden eyes and love the dramatic 1960s film star result that two coats creates.
I’ve been a fan of all things NuFACE since the brand’s launch nearly a decade ago. My latest go-to is the NuFACE Fix, which is the most portable micro-current device in the lineup. Excellent for eyes and lips, it adds firmness and lift to the most expressive areas of your face. Also, it’s purse and travel friendly and delivers instant results in a single 60-second treatment.
It’s color saturated with the most gorgeous creamy matte finish. Rhe MAC Powder Kiss Liquid Lip Colorhas arrived, delivering a luxe lip in a single pass. The doe-foot applicator ensures precise application and the muted yet bright tones flatter a spectrum of skin tones. The formula itself feels like silk, leaving lips comfortable and moisturized for hours. Find your shade and utterly enjoy!
Also new for MAC, the buttery smooth MAC Powder Kiss Soft Matte Eyeshadowcreates a sueded effect with intense color payoff…the shades are perfectly aligned with the fall months ahead and I’ve been reaching for the muted plum Ripened and fresh cream Best of Me frequently.
Additionally, all MAC Foundations will be 25% off on 8/22, making it the perfect time to stock up on your base of choice. I have loved the MAC Studio Face and Body Foundation(my current match is C4) for years on end as it’s lightweight, buildable and transfer proof with a gorgeous natural finish.
This month, the venerable French brand Guerlain is offering a beautiful value set. The Guerlain Abeille Royale Anti-Aging Radiance Rituel Set features the royal jelly-rich Abeille Royale Double R Serum (love the way it firms and smooths) along with three deluxe travel sized pieces…the Abeille Royale Honey Nectar Lotion, Abeille Royale Youth Watery Anti-Aging Oil (glowingly discussed on BP multiple times over) and the Abeille Royale Eye Cream. It’s a $271 value for $215 and offers a lush introduction to the revered Abeille Royale line.
In terms of clothes, here are three fresh ensemble recommendations in action…
It’s been band tee central over here since mid-March…can anyone else relate?
As dressed up as I’m getting these days.
(3) I’ve been wearing a lot of the Spanx Workout to Waves Sports Bra…the full coverage cut is supportive and actually plays well with non-workout clothes like these relaxed Topshop trousersand an animal print blouse. I finished the look with an equally comfortable pair of wedge sandals that I’ve been wearing nonstop since last fall…so glad they’re still in stock. They’re lightweight, require no break-in time and feel like you’re walking on clouds. Well worth the pursuit as picks from the Nordstrom Sale.
Dior Sostellaire Sunglasses: I purchased these during early access and am wearing them constantly; lightweight and unmitigatedly classic, I feel like Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s each time I put them on.
Tom Ford Black Orchid & Ombre Leather Travel Size EDP: I am partial to travel sized fragrances as it’s rare for me to finish a full bottle of anything. Both of these juices smell divine. They work well for a his and her gift situation or, in my case, self-gift situation.
ghd Black Platinum 1-Inch Styler: I’ve had my ghd 1-inch straightener for 7+ years and it’s still going strong…it leaves hair silky, soft and straight while mitigating heat damage with every pass. Anytime anyone asks me for a recommendation for a hot tool, I always suggest ghd as my experience has been stellar.
I hope you enjoyed this updated look my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale picks and would love to know what caught your eye…do tell!Everything from the Anniversary Sale goes back to full price on 8/30 and products continue to get restocked daily so keep checking for your favorites this month.
Good things ahead, including two foundation-centric stories, a fresh video and a host of new fall product procurements…cannot wait to share.
Stay strong, take good care, much love and more soon,
