Beauty Gift Bag Enthusiasts- Information, Photos and Recommendations

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

Wow thats fantastic, thanks! I'll be getting the trial kit and mini face spray with a 15% off. Comes to only £51 shipped which is around $70usd, amazing deal!!!

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

This is great!  Thanks a bunch for sharing.  I really don't need the bag since I just did the barneys bag. But I LOVE the balm.  I'm also a huge fan of the spritz.  The exchange rate with cult beauty isn't too shabby either.  I ended up ordering the travel mist (to use on an upcoming trip) and the copper peel, plus the 15%.  Winning!

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

I've never purchased from somewhere that already had VAT added in, how much gets removed if you're ordering from the US?

 

"This price includes UK sales tax. Tax will be deducted at checkout if you’re outside the EU."

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

@RachM89 I think its 18%? Maybe 20? You can see at checkout though before placing your order.

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

oh wow, that's a pretty large percentage.

Thank you!

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

About 16.7% . The change would be reflected in the cart once you have updated your delivery address.

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

Thank you for thinking of me!  That's an incredible deal!  My Cult bag won't be here until Monday.  Can't wait!

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

If anyone is interested, the current exchange rate means that if your Cult Beauty order equals 147 GBP, it equals $186 USD.  Quite a jump, but the Omorovicza products are nearly half price on Cult as compared to the US.

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

Thanks for posting.  I got the Omorovicza discovery kit, mist, a jouer tinted moisturizer, free cleansing balm & the goody bag for 72gbp after the vat & 15% off.  My first higher end beauty bag was a great deal & can't wait to try the new stuff.

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

SO glad all of you beauties were able to get in on this awesome deal!!! Yay us!!!

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

I was going to resist but couldn't lol. Got the Omo Deep Cleansing Mask, LE mist and a tonic mist from January Labs to get the Goody bag.

 

I think tomorrow is the last day for the Goody Bag so hurry if you want extra gifts and they probably follow UK time so it will end earlier than North American end of day.

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

SpaceNK Spring beauty bag will be available soon!

Sorry for the quality of picture.

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

Confused and not sure if I am reading it wrong? Why does it says yours "with any purchase over $400" but at the end it says "to qualify, spend $250 or more"

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

Good catch @Meesh123!  This looks like a good one - I wish I knew what would be in the Barney's bag before commiting to this one, though....

 

Thanks formposting @Sansara!

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

You are welcome, @Tamara76. I just got this in my mail. And now the hardest part begin - to buy or not to buy? I love a lot of things from this bag, but I also have a lot. Plus, choice on Space NK is a bit limited for my taste. And next month a lot of other great things should come out - like Barneys, CultBeauty, Net-a-porter maybe....

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

@Sansara what does cult beauty do?  I'm always a sucker for the barneys bag I usually get two

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

@mpas 4 times a year (March, June, September and November) Cult Beauty do great GWP with 100 GBP purchase. I like them, cause their price for some brands (Sunday Riley, May Lindstrom, Omorovicza etc) are lower, than in US plus you get VAT removed (because of shipping outside EU zone), which is 20%.

Pictures are from last year GWP (March and November bags). 

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

@Sansara Yess Cult beauty is my new BFF! Amazing amazing deals and gwp's. Is there a bag coming up in March? if so whoooohoo!

 

I got my first one this past holiday season and it was amazing. I also LOVE the Caroline Hirons boxes. Love cult! Please post if you get more info. Smiley Happy

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

@luvgloss13 Yes, I love them too! Next bag should be in the beginning of March (according to previous years, if nothing gonna change) and Caroline Hirons box somewhere in May. I will post as soon as I know! And you post Barney`s.

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

Hi how do you purchase this beauty bag?

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

@mztm If you're talking about the Cult Beauty bag above, it's a GWP with usually a 100-125 GBP on their site. The pics above are previous bags. We'll post new info when it's available. Next one should be early March.

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.

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

@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.
