What to Buy at the Nordstrom Sale: Beauty, Bags and Accessories

Continuing with the Nordstrom Sale, today, I’m highlighting the top Beauty, Bags and Accessory picks. Today’s post isn’t too involved, just the best of the best. I sorted through the entire selection to highlight only the items I know you are either looking for or already love. This particular assortment offers some of the best savings in the sale. 

Once again, inventory is starting to become limited, as is the case every year. 

All cardholders may begin shopping today, public access starts on July 28th. 

Nordstrom Sale: Beauty, Bags and Accessories

NSale Beauty 

Most of my beauty splurges come from this sale since the savings are so significant. I own and use every single item below. Pick up something for yourself or buy now and old onto until the holidays to give as a gift to some of your favorite ladies. 

Laura Mercier, Translucent Loose Setting Powder Duo, $49 | YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lip Set, $38| NUFACE® Trinity® Facial Toning Kit, $199 |PMD Clean Facial Cleansing Device, $66 | SLIP Sunset Hair Tie Set, $45 | T3 Fit Compact Hair Dryer, $99 | SLIP Silk Queen Pillowcase Duo, $125| ALTERNA® Caviar Anti-Aging Set ,  $72 

Laura Mercier, Translucent Loose Setting Powder Duo, $49: Dust on to set your makeup and create a gorgeous, smooth finish.

YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lip Set, $38: I talk about this lipstick balm often. It’s hydrating and gives the slightest tint of color—one of my all-time favorite beauty products at a great price. 

NUFACE® Trinity® Facial Toning Kit, $199: I splurged on this face toning gadget a few years ago and frequently use it. It uses microcurrents to help rejuvenate and tighten your skin. 

PMD Clean Facial Cleansing Device, $66: I replaced my old Clarisonic with the PMD Facial Cleansing Device. This uses silicone bristles (so it doesn’t hold dirt and bacteria) to help massage and deep clean your skin.

T3 Curling Iron (not pictured) and T3 Hair Dryer (travel size in part of the sale)- These have been my go-tos for years. Using them together cuts my drying and styling time in half and the heat from the iron locks in the curls. To prevent damaging your hair, be sure to use a heat-protecting product.  

Caviar Shampoo and Conditioner, $72 – An absolute splurge, but one I grab during every sale. 

Slip Pillowcase Set, $125 – I can’t sing the praises of these silk pillowcases enough. They stay cool at night, feel so indulgent, and have many beauty benefits like reducing wrinkles and preventing hair breakage. I’ve tried the dupes you can buy on Amazon and confidently say that nothing compares to the original. 

SLIP Sunset Hair Tie Set, $45:

The bags I’ve purchased over the years during this sale have been some of my favorites.

TORY BURCH Carson Zip Top Crossbody Bag, $149: I have last year’s version of this simple bag and use it daily. You can slide in a few cards and some cash, your phone, keys, lipstick, and you’re set! Great for a night out. 

TORY BURCH Carson Convertible Leather Crossbody Bag, $299: This is my Tory purchase for the year in black. 

TUMI Voyageur Just In Case® Packable Nylon Tote, $66: This TUMI tote folds into the size of an envelope so you can pack it in your suitcase for any extra purchases you make during your travels. 

TUMI Voyageur Carson Nylon Backpack, $263: TUMI products are worth every penny. If you are looking for a high-quality backpack, their Voyageur Nylon option will last a lifetime.

I was fortunate enough to purchase the purse before they sold out this week, and yes, it is absolutely gorgeous. Thanks for doing the leg work, Megan. Love reading your blogs and fashion recommendations, although it results in me spending money!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thanks for these ideas! Yeah, my sister-in-law works for Nordstrom in Ohio and said that they were not carrying the inventory levels that they normally would in the past due to Covid (lack of in-store shopping over several months). So that is why the items are selling out faster than during past annual sales.

I ordered the Tory Burch purse last year during the Nordstrom sale and love it! The color option this year is gorgeous!! Mine is all tan. The logo is not large at all. I find that since I am working from home this is the only purse I use. Very convenient to run errands to the store.

I've been eyeing that Tory Burch bag for days, putting it in my cart then taking it back out; just now took the plunge and ordered it! I love that it combines taupe and cognac with the black and white, but am not sure I like the logo...I'm generally a "no logos" woman :) Will be interesting to see if I like it in person...

I never like a big logo either, but then I buy all the Tory shoes and bags with them on it - I guess I make her the exception :)
