If discovering that great beauty product (aka something I use religiously) on sale is like finding a needle in a haystack, then finding a great designer beauty product on sale feels like finding a unicorn. It just doesn't happen. Unless, of course, you happen to be shopping Nordstrom's Spring Sale right now, which miraculously features tons of amazing designer formulas at a fraction of the price. The selection almost feels too good to be true.
Fifty-three pages of scrolling later (yes, you're welcome), I spotted countless designer items that I rely on daily and routinely recommend to friends, family, and readers who have the highest standards when it comes to beauty. Below, I'm sharing Nordstrom's standout designer beauty offerings that are temporarily less expensive for a limited time only. And for what it's worth, I have a suspicion that these picks, in particular, will be the first to sell out, so I wouldn't wait. Keep scrolling to shop my curated list of recommendations.

Beauty Director

Erin has been writing a mix of beauty and wellness content for Who What Wear for over four years. Prior to that, she spent two and half years writing for Byrdie. She now calls Santa Monica home but grew up in Minnetonka, Minnesota, and studied writing, rhetoric, and communication at University of Wisconsin, La Crosse. She studied abroad in Galway, Ireland, and spent a summer in L.A. interning with the Byrdie and Who What Wear family. After graduating from UW, she spent one year in San Francisco, where she worked as a writer for Pottery Barn Kids and PBteen before moving down to L.A. to begin her career as a beauty editor. She considers her day-to-day beauty aesthetic very low-maintenance and relies on staples like clear brow serum (from Kimiko!), Lawless's Lip Plumping Mask in Cherry Vanilla, and an eyelash curler. For special occasions or days when she's taking more meetings or has an event, she'll wear anything and everything from Charlotte Tilbury (the foundations are game-changing), some shimmer on her lids (Stila and Róen do it best), and a few coats of the best mascara-type product on earth, Surratt's Noir Lash Tint.
