2018 was a great year in beauty for me. I made some amazing purchases and received some even more amazing packages from brands. Of all the things that I tried and tested, here is a comprehensive list of things that are Candice O approved.
It’s that time of year again. I’m back with some of my favorite hair, makeup, and skincare things as shopping suggestions for that special someone or even yourself. Because, why not treat yourself!?!

It’s that time of year again, and to be very honest it almost passed me by! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has always been a staple for me. This is the time of year where I buy all of my favorite things and prep for the fall. And even if you’re not planning on buying sweaters and boots, now is the perfect time to try out some new beauty products or get some of your favorites at a reduced price.
One tip I can give you is, work with one associate! They’re all desperate for sales (trust me I’ve worked at Nordstrom) and it benefits you to work with one associate and just give them a list, and let them grab everything for you. Put them to work, it’s their job!
If you’re not sure what things to get from the Beauty Exclusives portion of the Anniversary Sale, I’ve got you covered! I went through every single item (yes I really did) and pulled the best buys.
Be sure to check and see if any brand you are interested in has a gift with purchase (GWP). Many brands do and they will have spending minimums for each. Check out the GWP list here.

2017 was an amazing year for me beauty wise. Working in cosmetics retail for a number of brands, I was able to get my hands on products that I would have otherwise never touched, and let’s be honest, I got a ton of free stuff to expose me to brands that I have never heard of.
Some products weren’t for me and I wasn’t a fan, but there were a lot that I fell in love with and I wanted to share the love with you. I had three criteria in order for products to make my list (since I had used SO MANY).
Each product had to be:
- a) something that I had never used before,
- b) something I used consistently to prove that it worked or I really loved it and
- c) if it was something that I got for free, it’s something that I would purchase with my own money.
Without further adieu, here are my favorite products from 2017!
Here are some gift giving ideas for the beauty enthusiast in your life. Or maybe that person is you. I won’t judge! I’ve covered a bit of hair, skin and nails, and a few other goodies I love. You will find links to all items below.
