Nordstrom's 2020 Anniversary Sale Is Almost Here, and the Beauty Deals Are So Good

Here's the lowdown on how to subscribe to Allure's print edition for more beauty routines, recommendations, and features.

It's the most wonderful time of the year. OK, maybe after Christmas, but for beauty and fashion lovers, Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale probably comes to a close second — and the 2020 edition of the Anniversary Sale is fast approaching. Hundreds, if not thousands, of brands, including La Mer, Kiehl's, MAC, Clinique, Supergoop, Charlotte Tilbury, Madewell, Topshop, and so many more, will be marked down at the mega department store.

If you've shopped this epic sale before, you know that it's not a typical beauty sale where only past-season or soon-to-be-discontinued products are slashed. In fact, it's quite the opposite: Nordstrom actually launches new products, sets, kits, and exclusives just in time for the Anniversary Sale and discounts them for a limited time before they return to their retail prices after the sale ends. Additionally, there are one-day-only flash deals (that are further discounted) offered all throughout.

But we're not done yet. You can also score free gifts with each purchase, in case you needed further convincing. Oh, and you can even shop Allure Best of Beauty winners with ease — in case you want some no-brainer, editor-approved picks. 

While the sale doesn't start until August 4 for Nordy Club members with Icon Early Access status and August 19 for the general population, Nordstrom is letting us in on a sneak peek of some of the products that'll be up for grabs — and by the looks of it, you'll have to add them to your cart fast. Here are some of our favorite picks from the preview:

Nordstrom is known for discounting jumbo-sized skin-care products during the Anniversary Sale, like Kiehl's popular Creme de Corps or Midnight Recovery Concentrate — so it's a great time to stock up on your staples.
