A Quick Beauty Guide to the Nordstrom 2015 Anniversary Sale (Spoiler Alert: $15 LORAC Palettes!)

The annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale madness has official begun, so I want to be sure you know the details about this event, including the scoop on these $15 LORAC palettes because, duh, $15 LORAC palettes.

NOTE: If you're unfamiliar with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, this is Nordstrom's biggest event of the year. They offer many, many exclusive products and deals both in-store and online that you cannot get anywhere else or at any other time of the year (for beauty and lots of other categories). The official start date for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year is July 17th, but Nordstrom card holders can purchase these items now. The rest of us will have to wait until 7/17, but the great thing about ordering on the Nordstrom site is that you get everyday free shipping on all orders, no minimum required (plus your choice of three free beauty samples when you purchase beauty items). Also, Nordstrom accepts PayPal.

LORAC The Skinny Palette - Black
Limited Edition Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Exclusive
(retail: $15)

The limited edition Nordstrom-exclusive LORAC The Skinny Palette Black is available for purchase now if you have a Nordstrom card HERE. The rest of us will have to wait until 7/17 to purchase, which is the official start date of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. There are two shimmers and five mattes in this palette. Set your reminders now if you want this one on 7/17, because it WILL sell out. And don't forget that you get free everyday shipping on all orders, no minimum required, on the Nordstrom site, plus your choice of three free beauty samples with any beauty purchase.

Keep reading for a look at the LORAC Marsala palette, plus info on all of the other Nordstrom Anniversary Sale deals this year...

Limited Edition Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Exclusive
(retail: $15)

I want to thank reader @kjkbean on Instagram for letting me know about this palette, and also confirming that it WAS available for purchase to Nordstrom card holders just the other day. For some reason it is now showing as "unavailable," but I'm assuming it will be available again starting on 7/17 (the official start-date of the anniversary sale). But it may be available sooner (again) for card holders so keep checking this listing.

Here's a round-up of ALL beauty-related Nordstrom Anniversary Sale deals:









  • For special anniversary sale gifts-with-purchase offers across ALL beauty categories, CLICK HERE.

TIP #1: There are beauty bags HERE that you can get for free right now with your $50+ Nordstrom beauty purchase. I do not know if these will still be in stock once the Anniversary Sale starts, but it's something to keep in mind!

TIP#2 : These offers are overwhelming, I know, so I really suggest setting aside an hour or so to navigate all of the deals I linked to above, to really figure out exactly which things you may want. If you end up having quite a few things you'd like to purchase on 7/17, I suggest making a Nordstrom account (it's free if you don't already have one) so that you can add all of the items you want to your wishlist, for easy access on 7/17:


When you click on any of the early access items, you'll see this box where you can add that item to your wishlist. That way, you'll have everything you want all in one place on 7/17, ready to go. 

I hope this post helps bring a little clarity to the always-overwhelming (in a good way!) Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. It's a great time to get some really nice beauty deals for any budget (I'm eyeing the CO Bigelow Rose Salve trio for $11!) and don't forget that you get everyday free shipping on the Nordstrom site, no minimum required, and your choice of three free samples with any purchase (plus, they take PayPal).

  1. I could be wrong but I think your "gift with purchase" link is going to "home fragrance" instead.

    Thank you so much for the wrap up! My wallet is trembling in my purse! Lots of goodies catching my eye ;D

  3. Oh, oh dear. They're going to have the summer Meteorites. I can already feel the $62 leaving my bank account.

  4. Can't believe I just spent $17.50 on Evian water in a can. Haha! The reviews were just too convincing.

  5. My favorite is the Creme de la Mer for $1,030. I can't decide if I want that or if I want to pay my house payment, cable bill and water bill.

  6. The Marsala palette was available to non-card holders on Thursday because I was able to add it to my basket. Super bummed I removed it before checking out now, I hope it didn't sell out already!

  7. Does anyone know if the LORAC Marsala palette is still available to cardholders? It has me tempted to apply gif a card to be sure I can get it!

  8. Nordstrom's Customer Service said the Marsala palette sold out right away and there are no signs of it coming back. :(
