I'm a Beauty Snob on a Budget, and These Holy Grail Products Are Finally Cheaper

I might not be a beauty editor, but that doesn't mean I don't have strong preferences about the products I use. While there is nothing wrong with a good drugstore beauty haul, there's just something about buying into the holy grail makeup, hair, and skincare brands that makes a girl feel like a million bucks. Since brands like Chanel, Dr. Barbara Sturm, and Clinique can definitely cost a pretty penny, I thought I would fill you in on a little secret. Well, by now, you might already know, but the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally here and all those holy grail beauty products we all crave are finally cheaper.

I went through the entire beauty section of the sale and picked out the 25 products that me, a grade-A beauty snob, am personally stoked to see discounted. Including the brands listed above and more, get ready to shop some of the biggest names in beauty at prices that will make your heart skip a beat.

Fresh Soy Much Love Soy Face Cleanser Set ($38)

Known for the incredible cleansing and makeup-removing removing capabilities, this product's cult following just makes sense.

Charlotte Tilbury Glowing, Gorgeous Eye Secrets Set ($70)

Make that summertime glow last all year long with this easy-to-use shimmer eye cream.

Chanel Chance Eau Tendre Eau De Toilette Set ($177)

I've been wearing this perfume since I was in high school and I'm never turning back.

Tom Ford Soleil Flawless Glow Foundation Spf 30 ($44)

This foundation has SPF and leaves the skin looking and feeling hydrated and fresh. What more could you want?

Nars Sur La Plage Full Size Lip Balm Set ($49)

Nars is one of the makeup brands I swear by, so when there's a deal on pretty much anything they make, I buy it.

Kiehl's Since 1851 Line-Minimizing Targeted Triangle Patch Mask ($29)

These mask patches plump the skin and eliminate the appearance of fine lines. Since they are just patches versus an entire mask, you can control and better target the areas you want to focus on most.

Dr. Barbara Sturm Clarifying Face Cream ($172)

Have blemish-prone skin? Then the reviews on this product suggest splurging on this ASAP.

Donna Karan New York Donna Karan Full Size Cashmere Mist Deodorant & Antiperspirant Set ($66)

One of my best friends owns this and hasn't stopped buying it since she tried it. And honestly, who doesn't want a fancy deodorant?

Supergoop!® Supergoop! Defense Refresh ($30)

It's still summer to stock up on this now while you can still put it to good use.

Tom Ford Soleil Blanc Shimmering Body Oil & Lip Color Sheer Set ($80)

Glitz your skin and rouge your lips. Yep, that's all you need.

Yves Saint Laurent Libre Paris Eau De Parfum Set ($112)

If you've been looking for a new signature scent, this is a deal (and a scent) too good to pass up.

Beautyblender Electric Feels Set ($35)

You know you need more.

Living Proof Jumbo Size Perfect Hair Day Set ($99)

Living proof is the definition of a "holy grail" beauty product so I suggest snatching this one up before it sells out.

T3 Midnight Blue Singlepass Curl 1.25-Inch Professional Ceramic Curling Iron ($107)

This curling iron will leave your hair feeling smooth and looking shiny. What more could you want?

Clinique Jumbo Size Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel ($27)

There is no better feeling than putting this moisturizing gel all over my face after a long day. I always wake up feeling moisturized and refreshed.

Estée Lauder Double Matte Oil-Control Pressed Powder ($21)

This powder has more 5 star reviews than I can even count.

Estée Lauder Double Wear Brush-On Glow Bb Highlighter ($19)

If you're looking for a concealer that leaves you with a luminous finish, look no further.

Luxie Rose Gold Face Brush Set ($25)

If you're anything like me, you're way overdue for some new makeup brushes.

Clinique Clinique Id™: Moisturizer + Active Cartridge Concentrate™ for Lines & Wrinkles ($25)

Buy this product and say goodbye to all your fine lines and wrinkles.

Dr. Barbara Sturm Clarifying Spot Treatment ($44)

Need to treat a blemish that's been acting up in a pinch? This clarifying spot treatment will solve all your problems, promise.

Dr. Barbara Sturm Brightening Serum ($248)

Expensive, yes. Beyond worth it? Also yes.

Tom Ford Black Orchid & Ombré Leather Travel Size Eau De Parfum Set ($78)

You can almost smell this through the screen thanks to the description in the name.

Drybar The Smooth Crew Kit ($165)

Calling all Drybar fans! This set will have you feeling like you went to the salon right from the comfort of your own home.

Dior Maximizing Lip Care Set ($68)

Honestly, I would pay $68 for just the pouch.

Nars Mini Oil-Infused Lip Tint Duo ($24)

Had to end with one more Nars product because like I said in the title, I'm a beauty snob.

Next up, here's what a celebrity stylist says you should buy and skip this season.
