I'm a Beauty Editor—Here's Everything on My Massive Wish List

Pulse check: How are we doing, fam? We know it's getting weird out there, but we hope you've found as much comfort in staying up on the latest in fashion and beauty as we have. Retailers are getting creative about connecting with customers during these uncertain times, but as a result of said worldwide weirdness, online shopping is pretty much the only retail therapy available to us.

Not that shopping is absolutely crucial right now, but buying things other than toilet paper (in reasonable quantities, of course) certainly can offer a bit of relief. As for me? I'm a master wish-list builder. Filling up an online shopping cart with more items than I could ever actually afford is a particularly refined skill of mine. Just ask my mom—I've been doing this since the days of dial-up internet.

I'll be honest: I've got a wish list going right now that's a tad ridiculous. It's chock-full of all my favorites, like La Mer, Mason Pearson, Byredo, and more of the beauty buys that make my heart beat faster. One retailer that always has the best selection of these big names is Nordstrom, so I dug through its entire beauty selection to build the epic wish list we all need right now. Check out the selects and shop them fast before they sell out.
