Recent Beauty Buys: Nordstrom & Sephora

Recent Beauty Buys: Nordstrom & Sephora

Welcome to another RBB or Recent Beauty Buys! I shared one over the Summer and I figured I would make this a series. I have to be honest, I haven’t been the best beauty blogger. This is my first time in since my last post that I have purchased new beauty products! I have been focusing on using the items I already have and actually finishing them. Now that I have finished some things, I decided to buy some new things as well as restocking on my favorites.


1.) Baby Tress 3- in -1 Edge Styler

When you visit your favorite Nordstrom location, they now have an area of inclusive beauty products. This made me so happy to see because it’s good to know that some companies are sticking to their word of amplifying Black voices and carrying more inclusive brands in their stores.

I saw this cute edge brush and I knew I had to have it. It’s a 3-in-1 tool for your edges and fly aways. I’m old school and I have always used a trusty tooth brush to “lay my edges” but I love that it has a brush, comb, and pointy end for parting. Also it’s Black owned, so I had to support.

2.) Kiehl’s Original Musk Eau de Toilette

I love musky & woodsy fragrances. I’m a huge fan of Tom Ford, Le Labo, and Maison Margiela fragrances. I wanted to look for an affordable fragrance to use in place of my more expensive ones and I think I found my favorite! It’s a unisex fragrance and it’s very subtle but lasts all day.

3.) Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz

Hands down my favorite brow product and when it’s on sale I like to grab a few. I have talked about this product so many times!

4.) Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant

An effective chemical exfoliant that I love! I always switch between this one and the Glossier solution.

5.) Necessaire The Body Wash

Not like your ordinary body wash, the Eucalyptus scent gives it a spa like feel and it doesn’t try out my skin or leave a film like other body washes I have used before. It makes my skin so soft!!! Definitely a pricey and splurge if you want to try!

6.) Necessaire The Body Exfoliator

I seen a blogger friend of mine share this on her Instagram stories and I was curious to try this out. I used this after I shaved and my skin felt amazing! Again, pricey but it’s a splurge if you want to try it out!



1.) The Inkey List Niacinamide

I tried this one back in January and I loved it but it’s ALWAYS sold out! Once I saw it in my local Sephora, I grabbed four of them (LOL). Niacinamide is one of my favorite ingredients for my skin and I don’t see myself slowing down on using it anytime soon.

2.) Summer Fridays Lip Butter Balm

I like to use this a night as a lip mask because my lips are always super dry. A little goes a long way and I love the vanilla scent.

3.) NARS High Pigment Longwear Eyeliner

I have oily eyelids so finding an eyeliner that stays on throughout the day is a plus for me!

4.) Necessaire Body Lotion

I finally tried the aesthetically pleasing body lotion that has been all over Instagram! I have to say that it is all the hype! A little bit goes a long way and it is super moisturizing. The ingredients are amazing too with niacinamide (which is one of my favorite skincare ingredients), Vitamin A & C to nourish the skin, and Omegas 6 & 9 to support. I plan to do a full review coming to the blog soon!

Have any beauty products that you have tried recently? I would love to hear!

    That edge brush would be super useful for my curly hair, too. Plus, it’s cute, ha!

    I know that Nordstrom has a lot of good skincare, yet I haven’t started buying there yet. My main beauty destination right now is Hudson’s Bay and small beauty boutiques. Yet, this post really inspired me to see what is at Nordstrom 🙂

    I’ve been wanting to try ABH Brow Wiz for what feels like a million years. You’ve just inspired me to put it on my Christmas wishlist 😉 Love seeing your beauty purchases. It’s so fun to read what others like to get for themselves!

    I am obsessed with Necessaire products! They are incredible. That body exfoliator is life.

    I’m getting the Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant as well! I have heard so many good things about it and I think my skin needs a good chemical exfoliation.

      It’s really great!

    What a haul! I really have been wanting to try Necessaire products! The fact that you liked it is good news for me!
