What It's About


From the best brightening skincare to our top iridescent makeup picks, we’ve tested it all—and now we’ve curated a selection of products from Nordstrom that earn our stamp of approval (over 200 of them, in fact). They’re all here for you to swatch, try on, and use in the Lab. Experimenting (and sampling) highly encouraged.



No lab would be complete without the latest technological advances. Refresh your face with a quick microcurrent treatment or try another one of the latest skin tools and beauty gadgets. Be sure to stick around for surprise gifting that could happen at any moment.



Meet the masters you love on social media (Hi, Jen Atkin!) and follow along with pros like Joanna Vargas and Nam Vo to learn the looks, tricks, and techniques you see on your favorite celebrities.
