Nordstrom Beauty Bonus Day: my tried and true beauty favorites

October 31, 2019

The only thing better than getting restocked on your favorite beauty products is getting major POINTS for doing it! For one week only, you can earn up to SIX times the points on beauty, fragrance, men’s grooming and spa service purchases with Nordstrom!

The beauty bonus day is a product junkie’s playground because everything you’re already planning on buying gets you ALL THE POINTS! This translates into more rewards at everyone’s favorite department store. Today I'm breaking down this deal for you and sharing some tried and true FAVES you can stock up on to stay pretty during the holidays or give away as gifts!!

How to calculate extra beauty points

If you're a Nordy Club member (free and no card necessary!) you'll get double points on every purchase, if you use a Nordstrom Debit card (no longer open for enrollment but available if you have one from earlier) you'll get 4 points on the dollar, and if you use a Nordstrom credit card you'll get 6 points per dollar for each beauty purchase, now through November 3rd!

Here's a few helpful examples of how the points would calculate if you purchased some of my faves:

NARS Liquid Blush: Nordy club members 60 points
Debit Card members 120 points
Credit card members 180 points

Dyson hair dryer: Nordy club member 798 points
Debit card member 1,596 points
Credit card member 2,394 points

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Palette: Nordy club member 98 points
Debit card member 196 points
Credit card member 294 points

Here’s some of my all time favorites you can rack up the rewards with!

Silk Pillowcase

This dermatologist AND hairstylist recommended silk pillowcase is like a nightly beauty treatment! The pure mulberry silk won't absorb your expensive beauty creams or create friction which can cause early aging. A luxury item for sure, but also a great gift for yourself or bestie! And I LOVE that it helps prevent my bedhead that can seriously get out of control.

Best foundation

This award winning Luminous Silk Foundation from Giorgio Armani has over 1000 perfect reviews!! Glowing reviews and glowing skin? That's a win-win. It is 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!

Nars Blush

NARS blush: I always ALWAYS get compliments when I wear my NARS blush in orgasm, and I really REALLY prefer the liquid over the powder because it lasts ALL DAY LONG. One of the top-selling blushes for Nordstrom, and hard to find in a makeup sale ever!

Curling Wand

What can I say about the Drybar wand that I haven't said a bazillion times before? The adjustable temperature. The genius square panel so it won't roll off your counter. The cool touch end. Turns off automatically. Just trust me. Add it to your cart during this Nordstrom Beauty sale.

Dyson Airwrap Complete Styler

Okay so I haven't tried this Dyson Airwrap Complete Styler YET, but it gets insane reviews and everyone I know who has tried it is totally IN LOVE. So if you're planning to grab it anyway for Christmas or just to get all glammed up for the holidays, might as well earn some serious points while you're at it!

DUPE ALERT: if you want to just try a similar but WAY cheaper version, I found you guys an insane deal on the dupe for $36 here!!

Nude Lipsticks

My favorite nude lipstick is probably Blankety (worn below), although I do love Creme Cup for a more pinky nude, and Velvet Teddy for a little deeper nude that has a little more color.

Anastasia Brow Wiz

I always buy my Anastasia Brow Wiz in taupe — I feel like it's the most universally flattering color for almost anyone. I naturally have really dark hair but I love that Brow Wiz in taupe doesn't look like I've filled in my brows, it just looks completely natural. I think it looks good on anyone from super blonde to dark hair.

Dyson Hair Dryer

I talked about my obsession with this hair dryer in this post a couple years back and I'm still just as in love. It really did cut my dry time IN HALF. It also has attachments that are magnetic (amazing right?!) and stay cool so you can swap them out mid-drying.

All-nighter setting spray

This Urban Decay All-Nighter Setting Spray is like hairspray for your face! This setting spray will make your makeup last WAY longer just by lightly misting this on your face after you're all done with your makeup. I never leave home without it on!

Eyebrow Gel

This brow mascara has fibers in it that mimic the look of hair while still keeping my brows in place! It's a MUST HAVE for brow lovers.

Beachwaver Pro

Sweet dreams are made of this curling iron!! I've been a big fan of this one for a really long time and while there are a few other irons and wands out there that I love too, THIS is my tried and true favorite.

Eyeshadow Palette

This Urban Decay Eyeshadow Palette is AMAZING! All 12 shades are so perfectly pigmented and I am completely obsessed with the soft mattes and metallics.

Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm

I always recommend this Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm for washing your face. It's so moisturizing that it feels like smearing butter on your face, but not in a gross way, in the most luxurious way where just kind of melts your makeup off at the end of the day. Total MAGIC!

Eyeshadow Primer

I've raved about this eyeshadow primer from Urban Decay before and with OVER 2000 perfect reviews I'm not the only one obsessed! Keeps those shadows vibrant and crease-free for 24 hours!

T3 Hair Dryer

I absolutely love the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer, but it is spendy. This T3 is not, and it's super highly rated. Bloggers love it. Stylists love it. Everybody loves it. It's the perfect hair dryer for travel, because it's compact and lightweight without sacrificing any power!

Hair Sweet Hair

I'm doubling down on the hair supplements and taking HUM Nutrition's hair gummies too! These are the BEST tasting hair gummies I have ever tried! They are so yummy. I legit want to eat like 15 of these every single time! They kind of have a bit of a sour gummy taste (while still being sweet) and I am OBSESSED. These gummies are meant to support the health of hair follicles for stronger, healthier hair. So far, so good.

Moroccanoil dry shampoo

Moroccanoil hair spray is the BEST smelling hair spray I have ever smelled in my entire life. The smell alone is worth my pennies, but it also has that elusive soft, but firm hold.

R+Co dry shampoo

I LOVE the smell and cleansing power of this one! It's definitely a fave of mine, but the white residue is definitely a little harder to cover up.

Clarifying Charcoal Shampoo

You guys have heard of charcoal masks right? They're definitely a beauty trend that's making everyone's face look as dusty as a chimney sweep and then as pretty and clean as Mary Poppins' herself. They REALLY work!

Now imagine if you could take those magical effects and do that do your hair and that's exactly what this shampoo does! It lifts all the impurities and yucky buildup from your hair and leaves it feeling shiny and new. No spoonful of sugar needed to help this hair-medicine go down. Seriously my hair feels SQUEAKY clean when I use this shampoo! It's just the reset I need after mountains of dry shampoo 

Drybar morning after shower cap

This shower cap is amazing because it's terry cloth lined so it's really soft AND stays on your head way better than one that's just plastic that may slide around and not actually hold your hair very well.

One of my biggest tips is to be SURE you shower each day with a shower cap! Think about when you walk into a super humid atmosphere (I'm talking to you Texas or Florida) and your hair suddenly loses its shape or curl or the straightening you just did 3 minutes ago. Same thing happens when you step into the shower with your hair just in a topknot! Throw those locks into a shower cap to protect your hair from the humidity of the shower to keep your look going all week long.

Makeup Sponge Cleanser

If you own a beautyblender, this cleanser will be a HUGE game changer!! Keeping them clean will make them last 10x longer and help prevent any breakouts on your face!!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel

This Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel is SO good for keeping unruly brows in place! Also if you fill in your brows, this makes the color last longer too.

Lancome Artliner liquid eyeliner

This Lancome Artliner liquid eyeliner is my recent fave eyeliner! If liquid eyeliner has terrified you in the past like it has for me, this will be your new best friend! The application is kind of like using a felt tip marker and I promise it's way easier than the little brush and liquid set you tried back in 7th grade 😉 Over 700 perfect reviews!!
