I’ve been using Estée Lauder beauty products since before I can remember. As a teenager my small makeup collection consisted of a few Bonne Bell eyeshadow palettes (Grand Canyon sunset, anyone???) and lip balms, and the rest was made up of the freebies my mother would get in her gift with purchase from Estée Lauder. So I grew up appreciating the brand and have continued to use many of their products. Today only Estée Lauder products are 25% off as part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. So I’m sharing some of my favorite Estée Lauder beauty products. Oh, and there absolutely is one of those sweet gifts with purchase, too.

I attended a beauty event at Nordstrom on Saturday and received one of the gifts with purchase, so I’m glad I get to share that with you, too. It’s a great gift. Actually you have the choice of two. But this one that I came home with includes a great eyeshadow palette, a full size lipstick in a pretty nude shade, an eyeliner, a mascara, a travel size of the Advanced Night Repair and a travel size primer. Plus, it’s all in a pretty little bag with wicker detailing. Score!
Here are some of my favorites that I’m currently using.
I’ve been wearing Estee Lauder’s Rebellious Rose blush for years. It’s still a favorite. I think it applies so nicely with plenty of pigment. But it also blends nicely. They do have a number of other great colors in their Pure Color Envy sculpting blush, too.
I’m loving the Desert Dunes eyeshadow quad from Estee Lauder. Unfortunately they don’t have the full palette available right now, but they do have it in the refill palette. Here are the current full compact eyeshadow quads they currently have. And they also have this Summer Look eyeshadow palette. I find that Estee Lauder eyeshadows go on smoothly and softly with longwear. They’re easy to blend, too.
I also wear the Pure Color Envy lipstick in Rebellious Rose. But I’m not showing it here. I generally wear a lip gloss over this matte finish lipstick, but I love how well it applies and the longwear. Today, however, I’m sharing a couple of newer-to-me lip products. First I’ve been wearing the Doublewear Stay In Place lip pencil in pink. It goes on smoothly. I apply it to the outer edges of my lips, but then apply more into my lips and blend inwards with the brush that is on the other end of the applicator. This layer helps my lipstick last longer.
Then I’ve been wearing the Estee Lauder Pure Color Illuminating Shine lipstick in astonishing. This lipstick is very shiny and glossy. It’s a little sheer, but very pigmented. They have lots of other colors, too, but I expect those to go fast today.
I also regularly use the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum. And during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale they’ve offered a beauty exclusive featuring a full size serum and three travel size bottles. This $209 valued set was one of the first things I purchased in the #NSale…for just $110. The set is not included in the 25% off deal, of course. But the value is great!
I also nightly use the Estee Lauder Night Advanced Eye Repair. This similar $70 set with one full size and three travel sizes of the rich ointment is valued at $140 and is not included in the 25% off. You actually can use this ointment day and night, if you wish. It really gives me amazing benefits, decreasing the fine lines around the eyes and keeping the skin there soft, supple and creamy.
As of Saturday I now use the Estee Lauder Resilience Multi-Effect Night Creme. This hardworking creme works as a night cream for the face and a neck cream for both day and night. A little goes a long ways, and I love how rich it feels.
But here’s another deal for you! If you spend $120 in Estee Lauder purchases, you actually get a second gift with purchase. You’ll receive this full-size Revitalizing Supreme+ Youth Power Creme (1 oz.). Up to $249 combined value.
While you might score one of those fun gifts with purchase on a regular basis, it’s quite rare that some of these well-known beauty brands actually discount. And this is just the first of several great brands to discount 25% in the #NSale, so stick with me and I’ll share them as they come up. I think they’re all one-day deals, so you don’t want to miss them.
Remember, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now open to everyone, even if you don’t have a Nordstrom Card. You’ll find great fall fashions as well as wear-now staples in the sale for you, your man and your kids or grandkids. They also have home buys and, of course, beauty specials. Nordstrom always offers free shipping and free and easy returns. You can find all of my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale coverage HERE.

Are you a lifelong learner or did you stop learning once you graduated? I think I know the answer to that question. In fact, to survive in this fast-paced world we live in you really have to keep learning, don’t you? I find that to be true in every area of life, not just technology. I’m still learning about nutrition, health, relationship dynamics, fashion, technology and so much more.
But I also think it’s important to maintain a teachable spirit before the Lord. We will never know all of His ways and completely understand His Word, this side of heaven. We have so much to learn about our God and how He calls us to live. The Bible is the text book and the Holy Spirit is our vigilant teacher. But we must commit to learning and obeying what we glean. Let’ make a point today to dig a little deeper and then follow through with what we learn from God.
I will praise you with an upright heart, when I learn your righteous rules. ~ Psalm 119:7
