I've Tried Thousands of Beauty Products—Here Are 32 I'd Buy Without Hesitation

During my tenure as a beauty editor, I've put thousands of products to the test. I've trialed moisturizers formulated by scientists, serums developed by influencers, clean makeup, every shade of nail polish known to man, and the list goes on. All this to say I've got some pretty strong opinions on which items are worth spending those hard-earned coins on. And even though it's my job to tell you what's new, noteworthy, and worth buying (or skipping!), I also like to make sure I'm giving you enough reasons to justify any given purchase.

If you ask me, a good sale is the ultimate rationale for making some additions to any beauty arsenal. As it turns out, it seems as though every retailer's anniversary is this month, and that means the savings are coming in hot. In fact, my favorite destination for those worth-it beauty buys (Nordstrom) is celebrating decades in the business by doling out mind-boggling discounts. 

While savings at Nordstrom won't be available to those who aren't members until July 28, now is the perfect time to check out the selection so you can be the first in line once the most coveted items become available to everyone. 

Without further ado, I give you 32 body, makeup, skincare, and haircare items from the sale that stand out from the rest.

Courtney Higgs is a Cancer sun, Libra rising beauty enthusiast with about six years of experience in the editorial space. She was previously Who What Wear's associate beauty editor after spending many years working on the West Coast edit team at InStyle Magazine. She graduated from California State University, Northridge, with a BA in communication studies and pivoted to editorial after spending her college years working in the legal field. Her beauty philosophy is simple: She believes there are no wrong answers and that discovering our favorite beauty products and rituals is a journey, not a sprint. When she's not geeking out over products, she can be found adventuring around L.A. with her fiancé; watching reality TV with their French bulldog, Bernie Mac; or relating way too hard to astrology memes.
