I'll admit it: I love a luxury beauty routine just as much as the next person. I love the potent formulas that are full of effective ingredients. I love the shiny bottles and gilded jars. I love the luxurious experience that comes with it. But I'm also a big believer in mixing high and low—pairing expensive products with budget-friendly options to achieve a similar result. I'm also a big believer that you can get a luxurious experience without spending a, ahem, luxurious amount of money. That's why you'll find me shopping between the drugstore and the department store for all of my favorite skincare, makeup, and haircare products. 

Speaking of the department store, one of my favorite places to shop for beauty products is Nordstrom. Whether IRL or virtually, I'm constantly scouring its shelves and searching through its vast selection. Along the way, I take note of the products that won't cost me an arm and a leg to purchase. And since I'm a beauty writer for the people, I thought I'd share this list of semi-affordable products with you. So without further ado, keep scrolling to see 30 of Nordstrom's best beauty products under $50.
