NSale: Anastasia Brow Gel, or, OMG How Did I Miss This?

Dude, I swear this wasn’t in the pre-sale for cardholders but the Nordstrom Nsale (anniversary sale) has a ridiculous deal right now on the clear Anastasia brow gel. Get two tubes for $29 (and free shipping! And free return shipping if you hate it!).


For serious, dude … first, this brow gel is the most amazing thing ever … it will keep your brows in check all day, no matter how much sweating or whatever that you do. My brows sway a bit on the curly side and even they are locked down. This brow gel also makes your brows appear a bit fuller (I swear, it does!) BUT it’s totally clear, so it looks totally natural and it works for every brow color.

I used to have a ghetto old tube of clear Maybelline Great Lash mascara I would use on an odd occasion on my brows. I always wondered what the fuss was with brow gel because the Great Lash was massively underwhelming. I got a sample tube of Anastasia clear brow gel a while back from Sephora in a brow set and now I can’t live without it. (Well played, Sephora).

Anyway, back to the Nsale … this miraculous tube of brow-wow normally costs $22 (it lasts for-ev-er though, I promise) … or around $20 if you shop at the Okinawa exchanges. BUT Nordstrom has a two pack of it (like a 2-year supply, yo) for $29.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: the best of the Beauty sale

It’s here, it’s here! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I grew up in Alaska, and in Anchorage, Nordstrom is the only higher end department store in town. And the state. When it was Nordstrom sale time, people were waiting outside the doors before they opened … and the anniversary sale, their best sale of the year, was insane. Like Black Friday, except (usually) nobody was wearing pajamas. So for me, getting excited over this sale is ingrained. I can’t help it …

You can do early access right now if you’re a Nordstrom card holder; everyone can see what’s on sale, but if you’re like me and don’t have a Nordstrom card, you have to wait until July 21 to order.

There are a few intriguing items in the beauty department this year. Nordstrom often gets in special bundle deals and limited editions for their sales. If you want to see my top picks from the beauty exclusives, keep reading!

NARS Concealer Showdown: Soft Matte Complete vs. Radiant Creamy

If you have watched even one YouTube makeup guru’s video, you have likely seen NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in action. This concealer is insanely popular, particularly amongst the highlight-and-contour set. Why? For many, it offers full coverage for even the darkest under eye circles, and doesn’t crease when you set it with powder. It also comes in 16 shades, meaning pretty much everyone can find a match. This year though, this NARS concealer met some competition from the same company in the form of NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer. Want to see how they compare?
