Nordstrom's Black Friday Sale Just Got Even Bigger

Don't you just hate how difficult it is to plan ahead for Black Friday sales? Even though everything's mostly online these days, all the details stay shrouded in secrecy until the last minute, leaving you as stressed as you would have been jockeying for position during a good, old-fashioned mall stampede. Thankfully, Nordstrom has decided to lower our collective heart rates this year by starting the Black Friday deals super early. (Insert sigh of relief here.)

Here's what we know so far: Nordstrom's Black Friday sale technically started on a Thursday — November 4, to be exact. In the beauty category, so far, it's starting off relatively small, with only a few dozen beauty products in the first rounds of the holiday shopping event. There's nothing small about the discounts, though — you'll find some of your favorite makeup and skin-care products at up to 65 percent off. We're talking Urban Decay, Giorgio Armani Beauty, Estée Lauder, Kate Somerville, and much, much more. And we only expect the selection and steals to grow.

There's still plenty of time to decide what you're going to buy for yourself and everyone on your gift list, but in the meantime, this represents just a taste of the savings that are available throughout this sale. We anticipate more beauty deals from brands like Clinique, Dyson, and other faves, so bookmark this page for updates. If we all play our cards right and stick to the plans, we can get through this frenetic shopping season without descending into a full frenzy. 

Here are just a few of our favorite, deeply-discounted items to whet your appetite.

Clinique All About Clean Liquid Facial Soap

Anyone who adores avocados will love the Kiehl's Avocado Nourishing Hydration Mask — and simultaneously hate it, but only because they'll want to eat it and can't. But its main purpose is to provide oodles of skin-softening and smoothing moisture via a 15-minute surge of avocado and evening primrose oils alongside shea butter, aloe, and glycerin. And right now, it's 50 percent off, as is its eye-cream counterpart, the Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado. 

The Erno Laszlo Break From the Burnout Set is the perfect gift for the hardest worker you know — which may very well be yourself. Valued at $120 and usually priced at $75, the limited-edition set includes an algae-spiked Multi-Task Eye Gel Cream, two dark circle-fighting Multi-Task Eye Serum Masks, a non-drying Pore Cleansing Clay Mask, and a refreshing Pore Refining Detox Double Cleanse face wash at $49 — 34 percent off. 

Clinique is truly classique, which is why so many people have stuck to its tried-and-true formulas for decades. For anyone who loves the brand's All About Clean Liquid Facial Soap, nothing would be more appreciated than this jumbo-size bottle — except for the fact that you're getting it for 30 percent off (practically the price of a smaller-size bottle). 

Be sure to scan the site for other unbeatable skin-care deals from brands like Kate Somerville, Mario Badescu, and Clarins, too.

Uoma Beauty High Life Highlighting & Contour Face Palette

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation is both a Best of Beauty and Readers' Choice winner, so even if you paid full price for this lightweight, medium-coverage classic, you could be confident that it was money well spent. But right now, you'll find the wide range of beautifully blurring shades marked down 50 percent, from $43 to $22.

Designer makeup is hard to come by at a discount, which is why you shouldn't waste any time choosing at least one shade of Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet Liquid Lipstick. The saturated stain is usually $38 — and worth every penny, especially when it comes to the incredible dark red Insomnia shade shown above — but Nordstrom is offering it for 50 percent off at $19.

A number of fun and fabulous Uoma Beauty palettes are marked down, including the truly lovely High Life Highlighting & Contour Face Palette in two four-shade combos that work wonderfully across a variety of skin tones. Normally $39, this sculpting and radiance-enhancing quad is currently $27.

We're also super excited about deals from Laura Mercier, Beautyblender, Benefit Cosmetics, and more.

Allsaints Sunset Riot Eau de Parfum Set

Are candles a home product or a beauty product? We vote both. Any way you look at it, the Cowshed Cosy Votive Candle is an absolute treat, making any home feel even homier with notes of patchouli, cinnamon, vanilla, and rose absolute. Whether you prefer sweet, spicy, or floral scents, it pleases any olfactory palate, especially considering it's $15 (30 percent off its usual price of $22).

It's hard to pick a fragrance for someone else, but you really can't fail with Maison Margiela Replica Music Festival Eau de Toilette. Anyone will feel the bond of an instant signature scent when they experience this Woodstock-inspired, warm-yet-fresh blend of notes like patchouli, cannabis, apple, and tobacco. And at 40 percent off, it costs less than a ticket to an actual music festival these days.

Hear us out: No one has to know that the Allsaints Sunset Riot Eau de Parfum Set actually came as a set if you want to split it up to gift one and keep one for yourself. And why wouldn't you? The blend of pink pepper, orange flower, and cedarwood is irresistible — especially at 30 percent off.

There are also a wide variety of well-known designer fragrances up for grabs at much-lower-than-usual prices, like picks from Valentino, Viktor & Rolf, and more.

So what are you still doing here? At prices like these, popular products are going to fly off the virtual shelves, so be sure to grab your favorites right now — just be sure to check back here for additional deals soon.
