Hi friends, Cassidy here! I am the Fashion/Creative Intern over at LIY! We may have even chatted before if you have had inquiries about fashion advice/recommendations, and if not… hey, hi and hello! I am so happy to [virtually] meet you! Today I am here to share something a little different with you. Throughout the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale there has been a ton of focus on clothing and accessories! Well, you guessed it [did the title give it away?], LIY  wanted to change the speed of things a little and feature the Beauty Exclusives from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Let me tell you guys, these beauty products are NOT something to miss out on. Now is the time to stock up on these beauty essentials! I have hand selected the best of beauty featured in the Nordstrom Sale and arranged the products by category–check out my faves and enjoy!


First up, Bath and Body:

Whish Deodorant Swipes Duo: Anybody else randomly drenched in sweat… for no reason… all the time, or just me?! These swipes are perfect for your purse or on-the-go and they are under $30! Not only do these swipes combat odor but they also inhibit hair growth [can I get a hallelujah]! Use one swipe daily to be smelling fresh, feeling refreshed and saying goodbye to those unwanted sweat stains

Philosophy Orange Pineapple Smoothie Shampoo & Shower Gel: Not sure if I want to bathe with this or drink it, but either way this stuff is amazing! From the smell to the result, this natural shampoo and shower gel are the way to go!

Philosophy Amazing Grace Trio: If you love Philosophy already, this is the ultimate bang for your buck! This trio includes, shampoo, shower gel and bath gel all for under $40!

Alien By Mugler Double Radiant Body Lotion Duo: This lotion is out of this world! [see what I did there ;)] But seriously, grab this lotion on sale while you can because it is over a $100 value! This stellar deal comes with two lotions, and they are scented “Alien”… very mysterious! Once you use this luxurious lotion your world will be changed! Yes… more puns, I’ll stop now I swear!

Next, Hair Tools and Hair Care:

Ouai Hair Care Kit: Okay you guys, this hair care set is the perfect duo especially for under $30! This set contains a wave spray, to capture that perfect beach wave, and dry shampoo, for those days that we don’t want to shower [oops]!

Moroccan Oil Hair Hydration Set: Protect your hair from the heat! This set helps add hydration to naturally dry hair or damaged hair. You’ll thank me later!

T3 Straightener & T3 Blow Dryer: Like I said, now is the time to get these game changing hair tools! T3 Tools have amazing heat functions that can save your hair from some serious damage! All about that healthy hair 🙂
Next, Brushes and Brush Accessories:

Sigma Beauty Innovation Duo: Cleaning your brushes is so important when it comes to ridding your utensils of dirt, oil and residue! This cleaning-mat cleans all brushes and a clean brush = make-up looking brighter and better when applying! This set also comes with a 3DHD Kabuki Foundation brush like no other!

Skinny Dip Pink Marble Brush Set: This adorable four piece set is under $40, and is just so aesthetically pleasing I couldn’t stay away!

Trish McEvoy Confident Collection: This is the ultimate go-to brush set. This 9-piece set comes with every kind of brush you can think of. The case is amazing [go check it out, and you’ll be just as amazed as I was]! and it is small enough for any kind of travel or storing! This set is definitely an investment but it will pay off in the long-run when you don’t have to constantly throw your brushes away!

Next, Eyeshadow and Eyeliner:

Laura Geller Eye Envy Collection: I can’t get over the deal on these four Laura Geller eyeliners! Not only are they waterproof but they are perrrrfect for that smudgy look or the crisp wing! Gotta get your hands on these!

RMS Glowing Set: The best thing about this set is that the ultra-sheer color can be applied to eyes, cheeks, nose and pretty much anywhere you want to create that beautiful highlight/glow effect. The rose color can be applied to lips and cheeks and the taupe color can be applied to eyes for a long-lasting eyeshadow! This set is so versatile it is hard to pass up!

Bobbi Brown Eyes and Cheeks Collection: This set is equipped with 12 eyeshadows, two blushes and two bronzers [*okay yes tell me more*]! Plus all of the eyeshadows match and can be mixed and matched! Addition bonus! It also comes with a built-in mirror and small brush for application. This is the ULTIMATE set for all make-up necessities!

Bobbi Brown Graphic Liner Set: If you are loving the smokey eye trend, this is the perfect eye set for you! It is long wear, bold in color and thickness and is easy to apply!

Next up, Lip and Brow Kits:

Yves Saint Laurent Lip Set [Nude]: Is a lip color your favorite accessory? If so, this lip kit has your name written alllllll over it! This lip set comes equipped with three different nude lipsticks that will give you the perfect pout! These lipsticks are like nothing you have owned before!

MAC Mini Lip Kit: I am loving this lip kit because it comes with two lip glosses AND two lipsticks, all are neutral-toned. You can wear them alone or layer them to find your perfect lip color! Not only can you create your fave color but you can also pick out which finish you would like! One finishes as a gloss and another as a matte–perfect for any event! I am also loving this kit because it is under $30! [what a steal!] Grab it while you can, they are going fast!

Anastasia Clear Brow Gel Duo: Lets get real for a second… eyebrows are a HUGE deal! I feel like there are plenty of us out there that have a love/hate relationship with our brows. This clear gel kit keeps brows/brow color in place and is long lasting throughout the day! This product is one way to get your brows on your good side!

Trish McEvoy Rose Palette: This rose palette ranges from a soft and delicate pink to a fierce red! These glosses are light weight and long lasting. There are two colorless balms to chose your finish!

And finally, Blush, Bronzer and More:

Giorgio Armani Glow Set: Having trouble keeping your foundation long lasting?! Well, this primer + sheer fluid foundation set has you covered [literally]! Apply both of these before applying your normal foundation and it will create a long lasting effect, a radiant glow and will provide an invisible layer of SPF50!

NARS Angel Pride Cheek Palette: Loving this palette of blushes and bronzer because it is so versatile and can transition through the seasons. No matter the season, this blush/bronzer set could match my skin tone, how could you get a better deal for under $60!

Laura Geller Blush Baked Trio:
 Check out this blush set and you won’t be disappointed! For under $40 and with the perfect mixes of blush and bronzer, this set is a must-have for your make-up collection!
