The 10 Best Travel-sized Beauty Products That Haven’t Sold Out Yet at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
Including great deals on travel-sized sunscreens.
Listen up, travelers: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 is coming to an end soon. You have until August 4 at 11:59 p.m. to stock up on travel-sized essentials before all of these markdowns and exclusive deals jump back up to full price on August 5. Even if you’re not a cosmetics and skin- or hair-care buff, there’s something enchanting about beauty sales — maybe because they don’t come around that often, maybe because they frequently entail a free gift, or maybe because it’s so satisfying to stock up on products you can use every day while they cost less.
To make it easy for anyone with an upcoming flight, the beauty picks below all satisfy the TSA restriction of 3.4-ounce liquids, gels, and aerosols packed in carry-on luggage. Equipped with these top hair, skin, and makeup items, your toiletries case will be lighter and maintaining your daily regimen while away will be a breeze. If you don’t already have a toiletries case you love, a lot of beauty exclusive sets available during this sale come with little matching bags that can replace the beat-up case you got for Christmas years ago. If nothing else, check out the deals on top sunscreen brand Supergoop! — which makes various travel-friendly formulas like powders, oils, and sprays — because you should be wearing SPF every day, whether traveling or not.

Supergoop! Invincible Setting Powder SPF 45 & Refill Set
Another of Supergoop’s unique textures, this broad-spectrum powder is one of our personal favorites for trips because it makes reapplying sunblock to your face so easy — and the powder leaves your skin with a matte finish rather than a greasy shine like so many cream versions of face sunscreen do.
To buy: nordstrom.com, $39 ($70 value)
Chloé Eau de Parfum Set
Even though only one perfume in this set is labeled “travel-sized,” both bottles actually meet the size limit for carry-ons, so you never have to go without a fresh floral scent — even after a day spent dragging your suitcase through terminals and airport shuttles.
To buy: nordstrom.com, $132 ($179 value)
Laura Mercier Highlight & Glow Face Palette
An all-in-one face makeup palette like Laura Mercier’s consolidates your makeup bag instantly, limiting the number of miscellaneous compacts you need to pack.
