20 Nordstrom makeup favorites on sale

  1. Estée Lauder’s Double Wear: This foundation matches Corrine's skin flawlessly (She wears Tawny)! We cannot even say enough good things about this foundation. It really does last 24 hours and gives you the BEST, prettiest coverage without looking thick or cakey at all. It’s also AMAZING for our oily-skinned sisters out there because it’s not only oil-free, but oil CONTROLLING!! Yes, please. Get this foundation for only $41.65 at checkout.
  2. Sigma Brush Set: These makeup brushes are top three of all the brands of makeup brushes of all time and of any that we've ever used. It’s a great set for someone in their early 20's who’s just starting to wear more makeup or anyone who just needs new brushes. Get them for $50.15 during this Nordstrom beauty sale!
  3. Mac Prep + Prime Skin: This primer is completely AH-mazing! It's super lightweight, but magically evens out redness and skin tone. It creates the most gorgeous base for your makeup and is one of the TOP rated primers loved by multiple Nordstrom makeup artists that Corrine has quizzed about their fave primers, and we can't help but agree. It's AWESOME. Get it today for 15% off and only $30.60 (reg $36).
  4. Urban Decay Naked Honey Eye Shadow Palette: One of the newest in the Urban Decay palette family! We finally jumped in a little while ago and LOVE all the golds. We are not the only ones who are obsessed – it's earned AMAZING reviews from other beauty lovers, too. And today it's 38% OFF making it only $29.97! (Reg. $49). This is a MASSIVE makeup sale steal!
  5. MAC eye shadow: If you like to add just one eye shadow color to your collection at a time, this eye shadow is super pigmented with some of the most beautiful shades and it LASTS FOREVER. Even on the colors we love the very most and use over and over, they end up lasting us at least a couple years a piece. Get most shades for as low as $19.55 (reg. $23) during this hidden makeup sale – that's 15% off! Our favorite shades are: Mulch, Shroom, Sketch, Woodwinked, Brun, Expensive pink, Honey lust, and Malt.
  6. Smashbox x BECCA shimmer highlighter: We were SO sad when Becca announced they were discontinuing their brand, and this highlighter! It’s truly one of my faves of all time. But hallelujah – smashbox came to their rescue and resurrected their brand and best-selling highlighter! Get it for only $35.70 (reg. $42) during this hidden makeup sale!
  7. Too Faced Chocolate Soleil bronzer: Bronzer is a must 365 days a year. This Too Faced Chocolate Soleil bronzer is basically perfection, because it gives you all the tan you want, without all the glisten that you don't. It's amazing for contouring thanks to the amazing matte finish! AND it smells like chocolate in a subtle way that will totally have you obsessed. Promise! Corrine has been using this stuff for YEARS and it's a favorite that she goes to over and over and OVER again. It doesn't have a muddy look. It really is just pretty and natural and makes you look sun-kissed and contours like a dream. Right now you can get it for $30.60 during this sale!
  8. Kate Somerville ExfoliKate: This has long been our very favorite home exfoliator for face. This dual-action exfoliation game-changer utilizes both physical and chemical exfoliants for the softest and freshest skin around. The fruit enzymes provide a grit that will scrub the outer layer of skin, helping rid your face of dulling dead-skin buildup. The enzymes also penetrate the skin to actually dissolve clogged pores and help with uneven skin texture and tone! It is dubbed the “2 minute Hollywood facial,” and we couldn't agree more! You can get it for 30% off during this sale and as low as $16.80!
  9. YSL Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-in-Stick Lipstick Balm: This YSL lipstick is seriously so hydrating since it's an oil treatment combined with the most flattering lipstick. We love that it perfectly complements almost any makeup look AND it's so comfortable to wear and nourishing on the lips. 15% OFF select shades during this hidden makeup sale!
  10. Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer: This concealer is what dreams are made of as far as a dewy, glowy concealer that ACTUALLY conceals dark circles under your eyes. It stays as long as you want it to stay, and we feel like we look ALIVE when we put a tiny bit of this underneath our eyes. Get it today for as low as $11.90! (Reg. up to $29)
  11. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation: This award winning Luminous Silk Foundation from Giorgio Armani has over 3,000 perfect reviews!! Glowing reviews and glowing skin? That’s a win-win. It's on the pricier side, but if you’re determined to find the very best foundation out there, this is a must. It’s weightless and hydrating and makes your skin look totally flawless and natural! Corrine wears the color “7.” Get the 0.6 oz for only $38.25 or the 1 oz for $58.65 (reg. $69).
  12. Brow Pen: This Brow Pen keeps selling out everywhere because it's truly phenomenal!! If you want the look of microbladed brows but don't want to pay the pain or price tag, this is the product for you! Before Corrine had her brows laminated she would fill in her brows like normal with a brow pencil and then layer this stroking pen (in Taupe) in the direction of her brow hairs. It gives a killer 3D look, like all of a sudden you grew a bunch of brow hairs! Only $18.70 during this hidden makeup sale!
  13. drybar Detox Dry Shampoo: We LOVE the drybar Detox Dry Shampoo! So much so that we included it in the best dry shampoo post. We are obsessed with the smell and it cleanses perfectly. It does leave a slight white residue if you go overboard, so spray light! 15% OFF the 3.5 oz size right now.
  14. Benefit Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel: The Gimme Brow eyebrow gel is almost spooky with the way it magically fills in your brows and makes them appear fuller! It's like you grow eyebrows (in the BEST way) as you apply it. Seriously so cool. Corrine uses the warm deep brown color and always end up with the most natural-looking, beautifully full, and defined brows! This is such a staple for us. Get it for 15% OFF today!
  15. Vacation Leisure-Enhancing Sunscreen Summer Sunscreen Duo: If you want to smell like you’re on vacation every time you apply sunscreen, grab this! This brand truly exploded over the last year and it’s because their products smell incredible. They have crazy high rave reviews so I’m super excited to try both the oil and lotion! Think the dreamiest beach vacation + all of your favorite summertime nostalgic memories combined. This set comes with an SPF 30 oil that’s perfect for hydrating and creating a pretty summer glow, AND a classic SPF 50 lotion that’s super lightweight. This duo is on sale for just $19.60 (reg: $41) and is a super good value.
  16. Armani Luminous Concealer: This concealer IS. INCREDIBLE. It feels so light, not sticky or tacky, but still gives amazing coverage. If you're looking for a powerful but lightweight concealer, this is the one for you. Corrine wears it in the color 6, which is brightening but still blends beautifully with the foundation. Truly we can describe it perfectly by its name: Luminous Silk! 15% OFF today!
  17. Lancome Artliner liquid eyeliner: our new fave liquid eyeliner! If liquid eyeliner has terrified you in the past like it has for us, this will be your new best friend. The application is kind of like using a felt tip marker and we promise it's way easier than the little brush and liquid set you tried back in 7th grade. Over 800 perfect reviews!! Get it in black or metallic brown for only $23.25. (Reg. $31)
  18. Lancome Definicils High Definition Mascara: If you're looking for one of the highest recommended mascara by reviewers, this Lancome Definicils is by far the highest-rated mascara with more than 3k almost ALL perfect reviews. The best thing about Lancome Definicils Mascara is that it never ever clumps, it'll make all your lashes stand out without ever becoming a spidery mess. Get it right now for $24.75 during this sale!
  19. MAC Cosmetics lipsticks are amazing in color and quality. They go on your lips gently and stay for hours, have the very prettiest pigment, and blend like a dream. Our favorite lipstick trick is to blend two colors at once, so sometimes it’s hard for us to even remember what color we are wearing when people ask! You can get it for $19.55 (reg. $23) during this sale!
  20. Clinique's Moisture Surge: This is a super light water-gel that gently replenishes moisture in the eye area for a full 96-hours. What does this mean? You get FOUR full days of intense, crease plumping hydration where you want it most! Bye bye fine lines! It works super well and it really does last a super long time! We highly recommend Clinique's Eye Cream (Moisture Surge) if you're looking for a wallet friendly way to do some MAJOR anti-aging prevention! The sooner you start an eye cream treatment, the better. And at the same time, it's never too late to give your eyes some extra love!! And remember, you can get this amazing skin care product for 15% off making it only $39.10 (reg $46)! That's the best deal we've seen on this in a LONG time.

Never Miss a Deal
Hi, I’m Corrine and it’s pretty simple. I think you deserve to buy the things you want at a price you can afford. Here you can find the best deals and steals on high end fashion, as well as beauty and wellness tutorials.


    1. Hey Jennifer, no idea how long the sale will last so grab your faves before they go back up in price!! 🙂

  1. On Mac Liptensity you listed Fireworks as one of your favorite reds. Is it sold out? I’m not seeing it on the Nordstrom website.

    1. Hi Michelle, it looks like it isn’t available at Nordstrom right now. If you’re wanting that specific color, here is a link to it! Hope that helps 🙂

  2. I’m not seeing the color option “Fireworks” selected as one of your favorite reds for Mac lipstick. Is it sold out at the Nordstrom sale?

  3. I am curious…. you said the Anastasia eyebrow pencil in taupe. It says that is a blonde color. Our coloring is similar so I would probably copy your color but wondered about the taupe instead of a brown color?

    1. I honestly think its the prettiest most natural color, whether I have super dark hair like right now, or when I had my blonde hair! I’ve had so many people report back and say they agree 🙂
