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

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

Space NK and Barneys have mostly the same stuff. But here's what I'm buying from Space NK:

 

I'm getting Sjal Cleanser, Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray x 2, By Terry Ombre Blackstar Frozen Quartz, By Terry Rouge Click Expert in #3, and Smith & Cult nail polish in Cut the Mullet.

 

 

For Barney's I'm planning on ordering things like May Lindstrom, Byredo (Other niche fragrances), Aesop, etc.

 

I think Barney's has more selection. So if you want lots of things, just get what you can get at Space Nk. And order the Barney's only at Barney's. Not sure if that makes sense. HTH.

Sure it makes sense, thank you!

 

At this moment my list includes two bottles of shampoo, two Diptyque candles and self tanner. And Malin + Goetz SPF.

At Barney`s I`m planning to buy some Chanel lippies and Solution 10 cream, I think.

I need some May Lindstrom too, but I will buy it at CultBeauty.

 

Thank you very much for sharing Smiley Happy

Saks has...a cute bag with $150 purchase starting 2/13. Saw this in a catalog I received in the mail today. Yeah, I think I'll go with a GWP that comes with beauty products!

There were some samples inside; nothing that great.  Mario Badescu, a toothpaste, and foils.

The bag is flimsy and has a strong odor. Smiley Sad

I hate Saks GWPs!  Even when they do advertise that samples are included, I've never received the full contents... ugh....

 

However, that bag is super cute!!!

 

ETA:   And they just mailed me a coupon for $50 off $200......

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

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..

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

@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
