5 Best Beauty Exclusives from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Saturday, July 30, 2016 • Permalink • 

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is still going strong. Prices don’t go up until August 8, but the smartest finds are selling out fast.

While there really isn’t a thing about the Anniversary Sale that isn’t fabulous, the beauty exclusives are definitely a favorite feature. During this knockout sale Nordie’s offers a range of beauty exclusives, including kits and special sizes that aren’t available elsewhere. Here are my picks for the five best exclusives, all of which are still available for purchase online. Don’t forget every item ships for free!
