My Personal Makeup and Beauty Wish List for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

Who’s making a Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 wish list? I actually haven’t completed my list yet because 1. I’ve been so busy and so stressed at work. Gosh you guys, please send some good vibes my way because work has been crazy this week and 2. I feel like I’m adding way too much into my cart! I mean, I have stuff in there I know I really don’t need and thankfully some logical part of my brain is like, “Ok, think this over before hitting submit!”

I think the past few years the sale has sort of sucked but this year I did feel like there were some extra nice values available which were appealing because they’ll save me quite a bit of money on some staples. Of course, not all my purchases are beauty related though!

What did you get? Anything super awesome you treated yourself too?

Here’s what’s on my list so far!

Ok, I DON’T NEED this but the value is great and I really want it! The this I’m talking about is the Simplehuman Round Sensor Mirror Pro which retails for $250 but is marked down to $150. I already own two Simplehuman Round Sensor Mirrors and I literally love them to death. These things freaking let you see every single nook and cranny on your face and they are really helpful when applying makeup or skincare. Not to mention they are truly well made. Seriously, SimpleHuman does a great job with their designs! Off topic, if you don’t already own a Simplehuman Senor Trash Can with Voice Activation you’re missing out!

I wanted this mirror for a whole and was hopeful a holiday sale would push me into the purchase but the 20% that was offered during the Holidays still wasn’t quite good enough to make me take the jump! But the $100 mark down definitely has me leaning towards saying yes! It offers 5x magnification with a 10x magnification with a small detailed mirror that stores in the back and can be attached to the front of the mirror. You can also pair it with your phone for different light settings. The mirror recreates the lighting around you which might just make getting your foundation shade right easier!

Don’t mind me I’m convincing myself here I need to buy it. I’m also concerned it’ll sell out fast as last year the deal they had on a Simple Human Mirror went fast! Yeah, ok I think I’m done convincing myself 🙂

We all know I have dry as the desert heat skin! I’m a rather big fan of using a sponge and apply a bit of Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base Priming Moisturizer to prep with. It really makes foundation application super smooth and even! I’m grabbing the Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base Priming Moisturizer Duo which is $60. A single jar is $30 which makes this a buy, get 1 free sort of deal. I could def get through two jars but my bestie and I are going in as together purchase so, instead of a free jar I’m snagging a jar at 50% off. He’ll pay $30 and I’ll pay $30! I already have a half full jar so, I really don’t need two full ones at the moment! This was a great solution for me ;-D

A big, big, big love for me is the Bobbi Brown Instant Glow Lip & Highlighter Set for $35! I don’t have this Shimmerbrick shade and I really think it looks amazing! Maybe I can get a pretty peach glow from it! This is a must on my list.

One I did want but I missed out on was the Becca Rose Glow Kit! I hope this one comes back in stock at some point!

Another really awesome pick up that I MUST have is the MAC Lip Haul Set! I’m in lust with nude lipstick and lipgloss everything lately and this set has some great shades, all full-size, that look like they might work for me! It’s $59 but contains well over $90 worth of MAC Lipstick and Lipgloss making it a great deal for nude lip lovers!

Speaking of lipstick! I’m reading for Fall and I don’t have any of the shades in the YSL Nude Lip Trio ($79) so, this also made my wish list cut! It includes three full-size YSL Lipsticks in a chic black makeup bag! The shades are traditional nudes but more darker nudes and dusky roses which will make for some pretty Fall lip looks!

I also have the Charlotte Tilbury Easy Portable Pocket Sized Smoky Eye Palette on my wish list. This one I’m still deciding on! It contains six shades but I feel like they run a little cooler so, I’m still deciding if I need this. Anyone getting it?

I think that’s it so far! Hopefully nothing else tempts me too hard.

What’s your list looking like?

Do share it!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I ADORE my Simple Human mirror. It goes everywhere with me if we travel. I call it the “mean mirror” because you think you’re having a good skin week and then you look in that thing…

    • Isabella Muse

      LMAO omg so true! There are days my foundation looks perfect and I look into the mirror and I’m like OMG it’s clinging to my dry skin! That thing def tells the truth no matter what ;-D haha!

  • Mary Brenner

    I’ve been so dissatisfied with the Nordstrom sale the past several years I’m not even excited about it this year. I can shop today and all I seem to want is a pair of shoes and that ysl lip kit

    • Isabella Muse

      I def been disappointed the last few years! I see some stuff I want for sure but it’s not nearly as exciting as it was in the past! In the past it seemed bigger and better!

  • Adrienne

    Sending good vibes, positive energy and renewed spirit you way….. and less humidity:) I have Nars, Fresh, Hourglass and Charlotte on my list so far. I’ve never shopped their sale. Is this one of the sales where they add new items each day? I’m able to shop today but hope it’s not like Sephora where we couldn’t get to the site and had to wait in line to logon.

    • Isabella Muse

      thanks dear! 🙂 I could use it! Thank god it’s the weekend! less humidity, yes, please haha! Nope, what you see is what you get! No new items daily, no going crazy trying to find stuff each week ;-D So long as you have a nordie’s card you’ll see all the items available today for sale! 😀

    The only beauty thing I got was the CT lip set since I love the lip cheat but never got the lipstick or gloss in that shade. I did buy a bunch of clothes though (Barefoot Dreams on sale is a must for me).

    • Isabella Muse

      haha twinsss! I got a barefoot dreams blanket, socks, and a beautiful throw for my mudroom bench! Great deals!

  • Annie

    I just placed my order and if my willpower is good then it will be my ONLY order! I grabbed the 33 oz. Jack Black Beard Lube for my husband. He isn’t into fancy grooming stuff normally but years ago I gave him a sample tube that came with a Sephora order and he’s been hooked ever since. That jumbo size lasts him the entire year so he’s happy LOL For myself I grabbed a Bumble & Bumble Summer Hair mini kit, a Deva Curl mini kit, the 5 pack of Saturday Skin Hydration sheet masks and the Gurlain Meteorites perfume. I’ve always wanted to try that, I love the Meteorites scent so finally caved even though it seems to be hit or miss for people.

    I really wanted the Mac Nude lippie set and the Dior Deep lippie set but I seriously need new lipsticks like a hole in the head. Plus Avon is coming out with new Mattitude Liquid Lipsticks and I know I’ll buy all 8 shades of that so yeah……..But still the struggle is HARD haha

    • Isabella Muse

      Did your willpower last? hehe! Good haul ;-D How do you like the Saturday Skin sheet masks? Curious minds! Let me know what you think of the fragrance as well. I reviewed it several months ago! Ha ;-D I totally get it!

  • Makeupluvndoc

    None of the makeup is appealing to me (because I don’t need anymore. But I did purchase some Tory Burch flats.

      • Makeupluvndoc

        The tan ones. They literally just came. (Such fast shipping!) But they gap terribly when i walk. I think a smaller size would not fit. Im purchased the heels in navy and Im going to take the flats back.

        • Isabella Muse

          oh no! don’t risk blisters! take ’em back for sure! Sometimes feet swell in the Summer too! So take that into consideration if you’re considering a smaller size!

  • Lauren

    I’m tempted to get the Paula’s Choice set of 2% BHA. I have a couple of back-up bottles, but the price on the duo is really good, since the bottles are normally $29 each. I’m also thinking about the Bottega Veneta set and the Le Labo set.

    • Isabella Muse

      Oh I didn’t see the duo! That is a good price! I got the Le Labo Set to travel with, it’s a great deal especially if you never tried the fragrances before!
