When you live a Moët lifestyle on a Coors Light budget, you tend to become a savvy shopper. Sniffing out high-quality formulas for prices that won't break your weekly budget is your speciality, which means
Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale is your Olympics.
Once a year,
Nordstrom marks down in its store with everything Black Friday-level deals for a full three weeks. While a lot of the discounts still include hefty price tags common at department stores, we've found a few hidden gems worth hunting down. Think: A jumbo-sized bottle of Urban Decay's All Nighter Setting Spray and a MAC lip kit for half off. Even better, every last pick on our list is under $50.
Starting July 19, the sale is officially open to
everyone — Nordstrom cardmembers and non-cardholders alike — and will run until August 4, meaning you have about two weeks to add every last deal to your cart.
Ahead, the cheapest beauty sets to shop at Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale.
