Sound the alarm: The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is here. And yes, it's very, very good. This year's lineup includes more than 450 discounted and exclusive options in the beauty department alone — stay tuned for Fashionista's shopping guide for the rest of the sale, comin' at you next week! Yes, you read that correctly: 450. Because that many choices can understandably be daunting, we did the work for you, combing through all of the deals from this year's epic array of offerings to bring you a carefully chosen edit of a (totally manageable!) 56 can't-go-wrong, beauty-editor-approved picks.
The selection we've chosen features some of Fashionista's most beloved products: You'll find two-for-one deals on a Fashionista Editors' Pick that makes lashes grow like crazy and the multi-tasking miracle that is Paula's Choice BHA Liquid. There are unheard of (outside this once-yearly occasion) deals on a cult-favorite, fancy deodorant, the glow-ifying peel beauty editors everywhere swear by and an air-dry cream that will revolutionize your summer styling routine. Basically, the beauty buyers at Nordstrom must be close followers of our weekly Editors' Picks — and really, we have excellent taste, so who can blame them?
While the sale is currently only shoppable for Nordstrom card holders, it opens to the public on July 20. But the good news is, you can already browse all of the offerings on the site, even if you aren't one of the retailer's cardmembers. That means there's plenty of time to prep your shopping strategy.
