This year’s Nordstrom Anniversary sale runs from July 10th-17th for Nordstrom card holders, and is open to both card holders and the pubilc from July 18th-August 3rd. Now, I don’t usually cover anniversary sales, but there’s something special about this one (you know, aside from the free US shipping & returns on all orders): it includes a Charlotte Tilbury set.
Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Killer Cheekbones Set ($110 USD) – includes a Filmstar Bronze & Glow palette and Powder & Sculpt Brush
For beauty addicts who’ve been living under a rock these past few months, Charlotte Tilbury (y’know, that crazy-famous makeup artist who often sits alongside fellow legends Lisa Eldridge and Mary Greenwell) launched her own beauty line last September. And, up until now, it was only available through British retailers like Selfridge – who packages orders worth hundreds of dollars in near-empty boxes with a single piece of tissue for impact control.
So, here are a few picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, including a small, precious piece of Charlotte Tilbury. Here’s to hoping this means the brand will officially land in North America soon. Shop all the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale beauty exclusives here.
Jo Malone Cologne Collection ($88) – contains five mini (0.3 oz), layerable fragrances in Nectarine Blossom and Honey, Orange Blossom, Blackberry and Bay, Pomegranate Noir and Grapefruit.
