I'll be the first to admit it, I'm weak when it comes to the power of the gift with purchase! There have been times where I buy things I don't really like just to get the gift with purchase (GWP).
It's like a high! A thrill you get as you're walking away from the makeup counter which lasts up until you get home and realize that you hate the colors that were included in the gift with purchase and the item you paid for was an impulse buy that you wouldn't have otherwise included in your collection.
Then you feel deflated and are stuck with a drawer full of lipsticks you're never going to use! Trust me, I know this feeling!
Barneys is notorious for giving the very best gift with purchase bags in the industry. So, I ordered Nanadebary Bronze which I wasn't crazy about at first but grew to love just to qualify for the GWP. Here's what came in my GWP bag:Fragrance samples:KaiPradaAnnick Goutal Nuits de HadrienL'Artisan Chasse Aux PampillonsKiehl's Original MuskHermes Eau de MerveillesHermes 24 Faubourgi Profumi di Firenze ZenzeroCertificate for free Shiseido face massage.Makeup:Stila full size It Gloss - in SmashingDevitt full size Mini Lip Gloss - in Red SeaSue Devitt sample of Whipped FoundationBobbi Brown samples of three lip stainsHourglass full size Trace dual liplinerNars full size Glitter Pencil - in RoxburyBy Terry full size Hydralift Lipstick - in Mellow BeigeBody:Kiehl's travel tube of Ultimate Hand SalveMalin + Goetz travel bottle of Face CleanserCaudalie travel tube of Bath & Shower GelSupersmile travel tube of QuikeeMolton Brown travel bottle of Invigorating Shower GelPhilip B trial size Deep Conditioning Creme RinseSCO sample of Body PolishFace and Skin:Chantecaille sample Rice and Geranium Foaming CleanserBionova sample bottle Eye Make Up RemoverBionova sample Superior Eye LiftYSL sample Temps Majeur YeuxYSL sample SerumOdile Lecoin sample Serum Tenseur Aux Proteins de SoieChanel sample bottle Precision Eye Makeup RemoverNatura Bisse sample Glyco PeelingSally Hershberger sample bottle Face VolumizerNARS sample Nourishing Eye CreamRevive sample jar Moisturizing Renewal CreamCle de Peau sample Eye Contour BalmKanebo sample Cell Refining CreamSkinCeuticals sample C E FerulicFresh sample Rice Face WashShiseido sample Retinol Instant Treatment Eye Mask
I'm really pleased with my order and really love the products that were included in my bag even more than the one I received back in February which is shown below as the colors are more my style this time around.
