Beauty Gift Bag Enthusiasts- Information, Photos and Recommendations

[ Edited ]

Hey gift bag haulers-I know you are out there! If you are like me and feel compelled to purchase every department store and boutique gift bag event, this is the place to share your info, pictures, decisions, reviews and more.

I just went for the Bergdorf Goodman Be Beautiful bag and will post my picture down below in a little bit. There are more of these GWP bags coming up and I would love to discuss your favorites, what the gifts bags have or will contain. I even have the idea that we could possible negotiate swaps between the gift bags and potentially go in to share a bag (split the gift and $250 purchase) for example..Lots to discuss!

 

Dates-please post any info that you get and I will try to update

 

Neiman Marcus Beauty Event February 11th 2016- gift with purchase, gifts and buy in TBA

 

Space NK- TBA I believe it is coming up in February

 

Barney's Gift bag- February/March (there is already a thread for this specific event, so just mentioning it)

 

Let's gift it up!!!

 

Edit: if you got a gift bag and want to switch up, swap or stockpile your faves, head on over to this thread

Does the Saks bag even have any gifts in it? I got the snail mail flyer and I can't recall or it wasn't clear. They better not be giving us just the bag LOL

I usually get this through my Saks Chanel SA and he stuffs it with goodies, but I'm wondering what is officially in the bag..

@txcatx Hey doll!

 

Nice! I can't believe it went up to $150! It better be good. I guess they think the bag is worth it. I never use these bags and always donate them.

Re: Beauty Gift Bag Enthusiasts- Information, Photos and Recommendations

Hey all! I have been getting a few pm's about the Barneys bag. I always post a thread about the bag with my sa info. I will get the info asap. 

 

The bag event starts around March 9th and as always my SA does a referral gift for you guys!

 

stay tuned...... 

Re: Beauty Gift Bag Enthusiasts- Information, Photos and Recommendations

March 9th is soon! Ahhh.  Cant wait to see everyone's goodies.

Re: Beauty Gift Bag Enthusiasts- Information, Photos and Recommendations

so you will provide more info closer to the date? thanks

Re: Beauty Gift Bag Enthusiasts- Information, Photos and Recommendations

Thanks! I read through the post from last year and loved seeing all the info, tips, and pics!! I'm hoping to go for one of these bags...

Re: Beauty Gift Bag Enthusiasts- Information, Photos and Recommendations

@spubu YW. They are great deals. I hope the bag this season is good! I think Space NK and Barneys get the same vendor gifts some times. I love the step ups too. Hoping for a Oribe one! Smiley Wink

Re: Beauty Gift Bag Enthusiasts- Information, Photos and Recommendations

SpaceNK Spring beauty bag will be available soon!

Sorry for the quality of picture.

thats upsetting. last beauty event, in February 2016 i stocked up LM products, not now I guess

Re: Beauty Gift Bag Enthusiasts- Information, Photos and Recommendations

Could not resist this and placed my pre-order.  I resisted getting more than one because the Cult Beauty bag posted below is a new one for me and I want to try it this year.  Lower buy-in and lower cost of some products sounds promising.

If you pre-order, do you get additional samples thrown in for shopping through a customer rep? I was reading that that happens with the Barney's beauty event @iwantitfree

@iwantitfree

how do you pre order?

Re: Beauty Gift Bag Enthusiasts- Information, Photos and Recommendations

I order through one of the store associates.  I have ordered in the past so she let me know about the event and I ordered via email.  (But I give my cc on the phone if it's not the one they have on file.)

 

Do you need a recommendation?

 

They do not add extras like the Barney's order.  However, if I pick up my order in person, I usually ask for a sample or two (they have foils in the store, not deluxe samples) of something.

@iwantitfree thank you! I just ordered with your sa and she is awesome! So nice and friendly. We had an awesome chat. I mentioned that you referred me and I mentioned Beauty Talk. I ordered the bag, and even got Bloomingdale's points. Yahoo, I didn't know I can get both ndulge and Bloomingdale's. Thats a free $25 Bloomingdale's gift card guys! Better than ebates or any cashback. Shipping is free too, as usual. SO overall, I am super happy, and excited.

So happy you had a good experience with her!  I did not know about getting both points!  I am going to have to ask about that tomorrow when I pick up my order.  (I think I've been missing out!)
