Nordstrom Beauty Products Under $50

Nordstrom is my go-to department store. Free shipping and free returns? Yes please. While I mainly shop in the clothing section, the beauty department can’t be overlooked. It offers many major brands plus a few that aren’t widely available. Some Nordstrom beauty products are exclusive to the store and who can forget the lovely gifts with purchases that they offer? I thought it would be useful to round up all of my favorite Nordstrom beauty products under 50 that I’ve either tried myself or am looking to get next.


My favorite brand to buy at Nordstrom is MAC Cosmetics. You can’t go wrong with picking up a new lipstick or eyeshadow and the prices are reasonable, considering they’re not drugstore. A few other brands that I’ve loved over the years are Bobbie Brown, Estee Lauder, Urban Decay, Clarins, Nars and Laura Mercier. Nordstrom also runs a mascara sale a few times a year where you can buy 3 mascaras for the price of two. That’s a great time to pick up those higher end mascaras you’ve been dying to try but don’t want to pay full price for.


If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know that skincare has a special place in my heart. All my life I’ve suffered from very dry skin so I have no problem spending a bit more on luxurious lotions and masks. When I’m feeling spendy, I especially like to hit up Elizabeth Arden (last featured here on the blog), Clarins, Clinique, Kiel’s (featured here) and Origins. I have yet to try anything from Mario Badescu but I’ve heard that it’s good. And again, their prices are super reasonable for non drugstore.


In my recent haircare video, I featured a few R+Co products. I love to stock up on them through Nordstrom. A couple other favorite brands of mine are Drybar, Ouai, Moroccan Oil and Living Proof. And surprisingly, Kiehl’s has an amazing haircare range – not just skincare! I’ve used their amino acid shampoo/conditioner in the past and to date, it’s one of my favorite combinations I’ve ever used.
