Nordstrom Anniversary Beauty

I finally have the scoop on the cosmetics exclusives for Nordstrom Anniversary!  This is still not a complete list (the complete list is enormous), but I culled it down to something more manageable.

Armani, Nordstrom Anniversary, skincareIf you love skincare, you will love Armani’s anniversary set. It’s $275, containing full-sized Regenessence Youth Regenerator (1 oz.), Regenessence Cream (1.69 oz.), and Regenessence Eye (0.5 oz.) — cheaper than buying them individually! — plus deluxe samples of Crema Nera Soothing Lotion (1.69 oz.) and Crema Nera Cleansing Balm (1 oz.). Drool!

If color is more your cup of tea, Armani has a $65 color set, containing Gloss d’Armani in 103, 400, and 602 (swatches), plus a rollerball of Acqua di Gioia EDP.

Bare Escentuals
Nordstrom Anniversary, 2011, Bare EscentualsBare Escentuals has a few pieces for Anniversary. I assume that these are debuting at Nordstrom but will become available elsewhere (Sephora, the BE boutiques) later on.

First there’s a Refillable Buffing Brush (which contains SPF 25 Mineral Veil) for $35.

There’s also the BE “In Fashion” collection ($49), which contains eyeshadows Muse and Santorini, blush in Promise, Big and Bright Eyeliner in Ink, Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara, 100% Natural Lipgloss in Heartcake, tapered blush brush, and tapered eyeshadow brush, all in a faux-croc clutch.

Finally, BE is debuting four new shades of Pretty Amazing lipgloss (liquid lipstick): Allure, Confidence, Savvy, and Witty. I assume these shades will join the permanent line soon.

Bobbi Brown
Nordstrom Anniversary, 2011, Bobbi BrownNordstrom will have an exclusive “Tortoiseshell Set,” (in the same type of packaging as Bobbi’s fall collection). The set is $80 and includes Beach Shimmer Brick (previously swatched here), Toffee Creamy Lip Color, Rose Gold shimmer lipgloss, Long Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink, Extreme Party Mascara (black), mini Ultra Fine Liner brush, and mini Face Blender brush.

Butter London
Butter London, Wallis, Nordstrom AnniversaryButter London is debuting fall shade Wallis (from the promotional photo, it looks like a glittering dirty olive-gold).

AND if you buy any two Butter London polishes, you’ll receive Yummy Mummy for free!

Chanel, Coco Mademoiselle Pour, Nordstrom AnniversaryWe’ve already talked about Chanel’s anniversary offering (click here for swatches). Americans will be able to buy the Blanc collection (Rose Envolee eyeshadow quad, Desinvolte and Joyeuse Rouge Allure lipsticks, Liaison and Blossom Glossimers, Rose Tourbillon blush, and Poudre Lumiere Perlee highlighter).

They also have a few other items (large sizes of Dramatically different; 3-Step skincare sets).

Deborah Lippman
Deborah Lippmann’s fall colors are hitting the Nordstrom counters early. $16 each, choose from dark green cream Billionaire, shimmery rust Brick House, vampy-red cream Single Ladies, or granite cream Stormy Weather (a collaboration with Narciso Rodriguez!).

Want something flashier? Then you need the Get This Party Started trio ($42): Happy Birthday, Forget You (black base), and Candy Shop (bubblegum-pink base).

Dior, Nordstrom AnniversaryHoly mackerel. Dior has an exclusive shade of nail polish out ($21), and the promotional photo looks divine. I’m kind of hoping it’s a creme (as it appears in this picture), but the official description says, “Never before has the color of the new Dior Vernis displayed such lacquered and vibrant shine! A cocktail of Shine and Sparkle Amplifying active ingredients directs pigments and pearly particles to enhance light reflection tenfold.” [EDIT: The shade is Blue Denim. It looks like a creme to me, a pretty, playful Crayola-(slightly-purpled)-blue.]

Dior also has an adorable all-in-one palette for sale. It’s $52 and contains shadows, blush, pressed powder, gloss and brushes.

  • Julie says:

    hey, do you know when these will be for sale on the nordstrom website? i just checked it for a couple of items i liked and neither was available yet…

  • KarlaSugar says:

    Do you have a Nordstrom card, Julie? Civilians can’t shop until July 15th.

  • polarbelle says:

    Karla, how much is the YSL gloss duo set? thanks!

  • KarlaSugar says:

    Omg, can’t believe I left that out. $49. Sorry, polarbelle!

  • Kristina says:

    Hi Karla!

    I bought the blue Dior nail polish the minute I saw it in the store – it’s gorgeous. It is a creme in the way that all the Dior cremes are – it has VERY VERY fine, silver shimmer that is only visible in the brightest of lighting, so it adds an extra luminosity and depth to the color while it still looks like a creme in most lighting situations. It’s REALLY pretty, and I don’t have any dupes for it among the 100 or so blue nail polishes in my collection!

  • Jen says:


    When I was at Nordy’s last week picking up some Chanel, the SA asked if I wanted to open a debit card with a Nordy’s logo….do you know anything about this and whether it translates into points like the Nordstrom’s card?

  • KarlaSugar says:

    Yes, Nordstrom offers credit cards and debit cards and they carry the same perks (points, which accumulate to give you Nordstrom notes, and in this case, the ability to shop the pre-sale).

  • Charity says:

    *twitches* lucky I’m not in the US, I’d be all over these…

  • Suzie says:

    Sad…can’t pre-sell anything unless you have Nordstrom credit/debit card. Never was like this…you used to be able to pre-sell something & pick it up when the sale begins. They have partitioned sections in every dept. displaying items from Anniversary sale…but you can’t even enter these “tacky tents” unless you have a Nordy’s card. Marketing ploy to get people to sign up for their card. Bad move, Nordstrom!! A lot of people are just walking away from this sale because of this.
