Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016 Haul

When we hear the word “Sale”, it’s usually the type whereas for a certain period, full price merchandise decrease to give way for other new products, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale or NSale is the total opposite. Brand New items begin at a sale price starting July and back to its regular price in August, so you always get the first dibs.

What I’m usually after this time of year are the luxury makeup brands as they mark down in such insane prices. Most of them come in a set and in full size! So without further ado, here are my picks…

Bobbi Brown, Bobbi On Trend: Cheek Set ($50) ($92 value)

This cheek trio is housed in a sleek black case with a mirror inside. It includes Golden Light Bronzing Powder, Belize Illuminating Bronzing Powder, and Pretty Pink Blush.

Golden Light Bronzing Powder is a neutral bronzer and works perfectly with light to medium skin tones. Unfortunately, this won’t show up too well on deeper colour yet still buildable. This shade reminds me of my NARS Laguna without the shimmers and I adore it!

Belize Illuminating Bronzing Powder is a pretty rosey Highlighter. Not the type of glow that I would wear because they’re not the most natural glow for my liking but still is a beautiful colour. And by the way, I’m still confused with how they named this a “bronzing powder” as it’s clearly a highlighter.

Pretty Pink Blush is a poppin’ blush. These are the type of blusher I shy away from for they don’t compliment my skin well, but to my surprise, applying the smallest amount with a light hand makes you look naturally flushed.

This compact includes a mini face blender that you can just pop in your makeup bag and carry around.

If you missed it, you can check Bobbi Brown’s website as they sell these individually. I highly suggest the Bronzer, it’s amazing!

Yves Saint Laurent, The Rebel Nudes ($72) ($108 value)

These instantly caught my eye! Just from the packaging itself and I’m sold! This set includes three FULL SIZE lip products inside a chic black cosmetics bag, these are…

Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-In-Stick Lipstick, N47 Beige Blouse ($37)

The lipstick is comparable to a tinted lip balm… on steroids. They are sheer and is said to be formulated with 65% moisturizing oils so it keeps your lips hydrated all day. Also infused with YSL’s signature Mango scent which I love!! This particular shade just adds a hint of colour unlike the bold ones in the same collection. Great for everyday wear unless you just want to keep it as a collectible.

Rouge Pur Couture Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain 7 Corail Aquatique ($36, Gold Cap)

Rouge Pur Couture Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain in 200 Plump-Up ($35, Silver cap)

These two are buttery glosses and they glide on the lips smoothly. Corail Aquatique delivers minimal pale peach colour and very hydrating while the Plump-Up appears clear and has a slight minty, tingly effect.

It comes in a thin, slanted doe-foot like applicator with a pointed tip for precise application. Now that glosses are making a comeback, this would be a sure hit to the beauty community. Available individually on Sephora and YSL.

That’s it for my mini Nordstrom Haul! What did you guys get?

You know the drill; if you have questions, feel free to ask them in the comments and I would gladly assist you.

Cheers,
