One thing I never tire of is beauty products. Whether it’s makeup, skincare, or haircare, I’m always ready, willing, and able to try something new on for size. Nordstrom is always a beauty go-to for me because they carry so many different brands. Today, I'm sharing my Nordstrom end-of-the-year beauty picks.
Some are tried, and true favorites and some are brand new to me. I’ve been a big fan of Ruby Woo Mac’s best-selling red lipstick for some time. It’s the perfect shade for a festive look. Lately, I’ve been using Nudeies Bloom blush in Cherry Blossom. A cream blush is flattering and forgiving. Or how about itCosmetics CC Cream gives a flawless finish. Benefit Gimme Brow is a great eyebrow gel that looks natural. I use Cool Grey. But Nars is one of my all-time favorite makeup brands.
The holidays are the perfect time to splurge on yourself or pick up stocking stuffers for your daughters, daughters-in-law or besties. So I’m sharing a little bit of this and a little bit of that with you today. Don’t forget Nordstrom offers Holiday Deals and Holiday Gift Sets and since many of us are traveling this time of year check out their Travel-Size Beauty and Fragrance Sets.
Today, I'm sharing my Nordstrom end-of-the-year beauty picks
I'm focusing on skin, facecare, and makeup.

Elemis is definitely a go-to skincare brand that I count on year after year, product after product. The Pro-Collagen Hydra-gel Masks are soothing and help with fine lines and provide an instant skin-tightening effect. Place two patches over each eye, brew a cup of tea and relax after a long day. When the time comes, they will be perfect for throwing in my travel bag.
Typically, I exfoliate my skin once or twice a week. That’s when I reach for Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Pads that act as a gentle skin-perfecting exfoliator. These facial pads work for all skin types.
I don’t know about you but these days, my neck needs some serious attention not only from the effects of aging but tech neck (all that craning over phones, laptops, and the like), Elemis has me covered with Pro-Collagen Face & Neck Serum.
I’ve loved Estée Lauder ever since i raided my mother’s beauty cabinet. Love their make-up remover lotion Take It Away. For a gentle cleanser, look no further than Nutritious Super Pomegranate 2-in-1 Cleansing Foam which gets two thumbs up.
Shopping online allows me to scroll through new products or head straight to my favorite brands. Today, I thought I’d check out Nars, a makeup brand I know I can count on. I am in love with their Air Matte Lip Gloss that’s long-wearing. What can I say about Nars Orgasm Blush except that it’s a flattering shade for most skin tones.
The Mini Bronze and Blush Duo combine two of the brand’s cult favorites. I would be remiss if I didn’t tell you Nars Climax Mascara (where do they come up with these names?) is a fan favorite and one of mine too. It adds volume to your lashes. Something that I need in spades.
Revitalash Eyelash and Eyebrow Conditioner help my lashes grow thicker and longer, which is a win/win at any age but especially at 64. Lashes and eyebrows seem to all but disappear as we age. Right?! And my eyebrows are definitely fuller. My aesthetician is so impressed with the results that she comments every time I visit. I always stock up on these during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
Love, love, love fresh Skincare. They have some terrific gift sets. Rose Deep Hydration Skincare Gift Set is perfect to tuck inside your travel bag. The Sugar Lip Balm Set includes three go-to essentials that are always in my makeup drawer. Every morning I use fresh Rose & Hydration Hyaluronic Acid Deep Hydration Toner instead of a cleanser. It’s one of my all-time favorites.
I’ve been raving about NuFace Toning Device (currently on sale!) for some time now. The reason being it works. It’s on the pricey side, but it’s a good investment, especially when you see the results. The Hydrating Gel Primer helps replenish and revitalize dry skin while ensuring optimal microcurrent conductivity.
A big thank you to Nordstrom for this sponsored post. And thank you, lovely readers, for supporting the brands that allow me to bring you fresh ideas. I hope you enjoyed my beauty and skincare favorites from Nordstrom.
