The general access portion of this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has officially commenced, and it’s proving to be one of the best beauty sales of the summer. With a lineup of beauty deals for the taking on some of our favorite brands like Kiehl’s, Charlotte Tilbury, and La Mer, you may be tempted to stockpile things while the savings are this good. Even if you’re focusing your shopping efforts on skin care, there are also ample opportunities to refresh your makeup bag while you’re browsing. Among the beauty exclusives on sale, you’ll find several MAC makeup sets that are right on time for a fall makeup refresh — although we’re certainly not rushing the summer away.
The sale, which starts today, July 28, will run until August 8. This gives you plenty of time to assess your current lip, eye, and base beauty situation to see which of these curated kits you’ll need to make room for. Some of the sets come with travel-size products, which is ideal if you’re making room in your schedule for any upcoming travel plans. We got a shopping list started for you by gathering up all of the best MAC makeup sets on sale.
1. MAC Award-Winning Lip Set
MAC’s three-piece Award-Winning Lip Set comes with full-size versions of the brand’s Prep + Prime Lip, Love Me Lipstick, and Lipglass, in complementary shades. Folks who like to switch up their lip color based on their mood may want to consider grabbing more than one kit, as it comes in three shade options: Bright (cherry reds), Deep (metallic mauves), and this Neutral set of iridescent peach hues.
2. MAC View From The Top Eye Set
Even if you typically gravitate toward vibrant eye makeup looks, a perfectly balanced palette of neutrals will always come in handy. The eight-pan set of shimmery, satin-finish eye shadows looks great on all skin tones.
Complete your looks with the tube of MAC’s In Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash Mascara and an Eye Kohl in Teddy, which round out the set. On the nights (or days) when you’re reaching for something more sultry, this set also comes in a Medium shade option, which offers a mix of deep bronze and berry shades — plus the mascara and eye kohl in Prunella (a shimmering plum).
3. MAC Travel-Size Lipgloss Lip Glass Set
There’s certainly a time and place for matte lips, but this high-shine trio of soft Lipglass glosses works anytime, anywhere. The Travel-Size Lipgloss Lipglass Set includes two soft pink Lipglass shades in Downtown Dazzle and In LA-LA-Land, plus a clear gloss for a next-level glisten.
4. MAC Prep and Prime Fix It Set
This summer is proving to be quite the scorcher. If you’re slowly easing back into wearing makeup, you’ll want to make sure it stays put throughout humid days. The Prep and Prime Fix It Set can help, with a lineup that includes two full-size bottles of Prep + Prime Fix+ in Original, plus one travel-size Prep + Prime Fix+ in Coconut.
