New Nordstrom Beauty Gift Bags and Anniversary Sale Sneak Peeks

Lots to cover in this post, so let's jump right in!

First, there's a new online-only GWP (four choices) that is FREE with ANY $50 purchase from the Nordstrom beauty or fragrance department HERE:

Enter code TEAL, LIME, PINK, or GREY at checkout for your choice of 1 of 4 bags. This freebie would go nicely with all of the MAC and Trish McEvoy products on the sale page HERE. And don't forget that you get free shipping on all purchases at Nordstrom, plus your choice of 3 free samples at checkout. 

Next up: the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale begins on July 22nd online and in-store and runs through August 7th (early access for Nordstrom credit and debit card holders begins on July 14th), and Nordstrom has released the Anniversary Sale Catalog online HERE. Below are some highlights.

IMPORTANT: if you have not already signed up for the Nordstrom Rewards program, I STRONGLY URGE YOU TO DO SO HERE. Why? Because it's free and if you do it by July 10th, you will receive a $10 credit to us during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. That's $10 off ANY purchase online (free shipping on all purchases) or in-store during this sale. Plus, you'll rack up points with your purchases at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack and HauteLook (online and in-store) to get rewards later. You will be emailed your credit before the sale starts, so just watch your in-box.

NOTE: the prices below that are repeated in these listings (in other words, the prices that are the same as the prices that have slashes through them) are items that are exclusive to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. So the prices you see are not discounted because they've never appeared anywhere else; they're already special prices exclusive to Nordstrom. You'll see that in some listings, like the Kiehl's products below, the prices are different, which means that the prices of those items are regularly higher, but will be lower for the anniversary sale (the price without the slash through it is the discounted price you'll have access to during the Anniversary Sale). I hope that makes sense! Either way, these are great values.

Again, you can view the full catalog HERE for even more upcoming deals on makeup, haircare, skincare, and more.


  1. Considering applying for a Nordstrom card so I can get that Nars blush palette before it sells out....

    1. Not a bad idea, since some of these deals have sold out in the past before the official start date of the sale. I put the link to sign up in my post, since you can get a credit OR debit card through Nordstrom, which is nice!

    2. That's what I did last year because they had exclusive NARS and Smashbox blush palettes. They started me out with a very low limit, $300, but increased it to $1300 this month just in time for the sale LOL I'm glad I have it though, just for early access, plus I use it occasionally on Haute Look also.

    3. Do you know if you get a Nordstrom credit/debit card do you actually have to use that card when you make purchases during the early sale? Or does having the card just get you access and you can pay however you prefer? Thanks!

    4. Usually you have to use the card to pay during preselect, but when the sale officially opens you can pay with whatever. I've heard that some stores will allow you to use other payment methods, but where I live, the price won't come up, nor will the transaction process, if it's not on the card. They will let you use notes and gift cards if they are less than the total purchase though.

  2. They will make you go in stores to verify. So sign up in stores! Spend the 100$ to get 20$ gift card the day you open.

    1. Great tip Tina! That's what I now plan on doing. Thank you!

  3. Do you have your eye on anything from the sale?

  4. When does the $10 off become available?

  5. I know I signed up when you initially told us about the Nordstrom rewards. Do es anyone know if we were already sent the $10 to use or are we waiting on those?

    1. Haven't received mine and I signed up awhile ago.
