Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale is Here—These Are the Beauty Steals I'd Grab First

What do crème del la crème labels like La Mer, Le Labo, Charlotte Tilbury, NuFace, and Slip have in common? Apart from being some of the most famed, cult-loved brands in the business (with notoriously Everest-level price points, might I add), they also represent a salivation-inducing sampling of the beauty brands currently up for grabs during Nordstrom’s annual Anniversary Sale. Friends, from one beauty lover to another, let me say that if you shop just one beauty sale in 2021, this should be it. I repeat, this should be it!

If you’re like us and you like to save as much money as you possibly can whilst indulging in some of the most effective and in-demand products that you possibly can, it’s time to bite. Now through August 8 you can snap up some of the most covetable products in easy-to-sample sets, hoarder-level jumbo sizes (for those products you really can’t live without), or, in some cases, full-priced favorites that are just a heck of a lot cheaper—temporarily, that is! I’ll keep this short and sweet because everything on deck is selling fast—like, could potentially-sell-out-while-you’re-reading-this fast—and I’m sure you know what to do. Below, I’m sharing 41 of the most outstanding beauty details you can find slashed in price at Nordstrom right now, hand-picked by, well, me. Keep scrolling!

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.
