Today’s post is part love letter, part thank you note to one of my all time favorite retailers, Nordstrom. As I begin to think about the chaos that is the holidays (PANIC), my only sense of reassurance is coming from the fact that I know I can tackle the large majority of my shopping at Nordstrom, a retailer that seriously saves my sanity every Christmas! Nordstrom is the one-stop shop for holiday apparel & gifts, and especially for holiday beauty. I have so many gift exchanges coming up with my girlfriends, and with the incredible selection of makeup, skincare, fragrance, and haircare at Nordstrom, I know I will have no trouble finding beauty gifts that will win everyone over.
As you’re reading, don’t forget that TODAY IS THE LAST DAY to get up to $125 in BONUS NOTES with your Nordstrom card! Details here.
Whether you’re treating yourself or getting gifts for the beauty-lover on your list, Nordstrom has you covered! I’m rounding up the best of Nordstrom Beauty below, including the best gifts from brands you know and love, like Charlotte Tilbury, Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier, BeautyBio, and more!
Nordstrom Beauty Services
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Nordstrom makes shopping SO easy, especially through the craziness of the holiday season. I (sadly) don’t live in an area with a Nordstrom store, so I take advantage of their incredible perks frequently. They offer free two-day shipping, free returns, and even a buy & pick up option so you can shop for the holidays worry free. However, if you ARE making the trek to a Nordstrom store this season (or are lucky enough to live near one), you should definitely take advantage of their incredible in-store beauty services. Nordstrom Beauty Services include complimentary professional makeup lessons, skincare and fragrance consultations, brow sculpting (with my all time favorite brow brand, Anastasia Beverly Hills), and even spa services! They also offer free gift wrapping for purchases made in store. If you thought you loved Nordstrom before, just wait until you experience these perks through the holidays. They are game changers!
My Top Beauty Gifts from Nordstrom
Charlotte Tilbury Starry Eyes to Hypnotize Eyeshadow Palette // This limited edition palette couldn’t be more perfect for the holidays! It’s designed so that you can us the shades in groups of three to create a variety of looks, but if you’re confident in your eyeshadow game, I think you could mix and match the shades as well. The pigment on these shadows is VERY rich and there’s honestly not a color combination I don’t love!
BeautyBio The Pout Volumizing Lip Serum // I’m convinced BeautyBio products are magic. This high shine, lip plumping serum delivers full lips and is formulated with vitamin E, sunflower seed oil, collagen, shea butter and hyaluronic acid. So basically all the best hydrating, plumping ingredients! The set comes with a cute little ornament and would make a great gift!
Laura Mercier Travel Size Prime, Powder, and Eye Set // This set comes with travel sizes of all the fan favorite Laura Mercier products, like the Caviar Eye Stick, the radiant Foundation Primer, and, you guessed it, the Translucent Loose Setting Powder (which my husband says makes my skin look poreless). I think this is a great buy if you are wanting to try out products from the Laura Mercier Brand, and would also make an awesome stocking stuffer!
Bobbi Brown In a Flash Eye Palette // Bobbi Brown has been a long time favorite makeup brand of mine, and when I saw this palette I instantly fell in love. The palette is filled with neutrals, golds, and jewel tones in sparkle, metallic, chrome metal and matte finishes, making it ideal for creating holiday looks
The Gift of Pillow Talk Lip Duo // Charlotte Tilbury’s signature lip shade, “Pillow Talk” is the perfect pink nude. Sadly, this set has sold out but I found a similar one here that includes 2 full size lipsticks and the same great liner in the Pillow Talk duo!
MAC Wish Upon Stars Mini Lipstick Set // Confession: I rarely finish a tube of lipstick. That’s why I love these minis from MAC! They give you the ability to try 5 new shades without having to purchase a full tube, and for only $32.
