Bergdorf Goodman Gift Card Event 12/3/09-12/6/09

December 3, 2009

By far my favorite beauty event of them all (I know we all love samples, but really who doesn’t love instant savings?), Bergdorf Goodman’s Gift Card event has rolled around again! Unlike certain other department stores, the savings at Bergdorf are instant, meaning spend $100 and only pay $75. Will you be indulging in any holiday purchases this time around? To take advantage of the offer, just enter code: BEAUTY at checkout today through December 6.

I for one will be stopping by Bergdorf today to pick up a few makeup goodies to include in a special holiday giveaway I’ve got planned for all of you. I’m thinking maybe a little Chanel, some Paul & Joe, and all sorts of other wonderfulness. The giveaway should go up within the next week or two so be sure to check back often as you won’t want to miss it!

Photos From The Clinique/Milly Fashion’s Night Out Event!

September 17, 2009

The 59th Street Bloomingdales Clinique counter celebrated the coming together of beauty and fashion and the launch of Fashion Week by collaborating with fashion designer Milly (whose work I absolutely adore ~ she makes the prettiest, girliest dresses).

To celebrate, Clinique & Milly released a chic, one-of-a-kind, makeup bag exclusively at Bloomingdale’s and co-hosted an exclusive cocktail party for fashionistas, Fashion Week goers and VIPs.

Milly designer Michelle Smith stated, “I’m excited to celebrate Milly’s collaboration with Clinique on an evening dedicated to fashion and inspiring consumers to get out and shop. The Milly for Clinique bag and my favorite items inside are the perfect way to keep every woman looking beautiful this fall.”

Everyone had a fabulous time meeting with Michelle, having her sign their makeup bags, receiving “Milly for Clinique” makeovers, listening to great music from the DJ and sipping on flutes of champagne.

I’m sure it must have been such a thrill for all of the attendees to meet with Milly’s designer, Michelle Smith, and to check out her makeup picks. And how cute were her shoes?!

Bergdorf’s Beauty Gift Card Event Finally Online!

September 16, 2009

While I love and appreciate any and all gift with purchase events, my favorite department store beauty event is still Bergdorf Goodman’s Gift Card Event, which up until now has been in-store only. A GWP is nice and all, but nothing beats saving some cold hard cash, and so I’ve always waited until Bergdorf’s $25 off any purchase of $100 or more events to purchase those pricier beauty items.

What makes this Beauty Event even better is that Bergdorf offers simply amazing GWP’s along with the $25 gift cards, meaning you get even more bang for your buck! During the last even I picked up a Shu Uemura and a Lancome gift, and when I compared the moisturizer sample with the same moisturizer in a Bloomies GWP I’d received, the Bergdorf one was double the size.

Definitely check out Bergdorf’s amazing selection of cosmetics and treat yourself to a few items while this great event is going on now through September 20, 2009!

The Fekkai Shampoo Swap: Trade Your Shampoo For Fekkai’s!

September 16, 2009

As I’m sure many of you already know, on Thursday, September 17, select Saks locations nationwide will be exchanging any full-sized shampoo you currently own (full or empty) for one full-sized bottle of the new Fekkai Advanced shampoo of your choice (a $23 value) ~ a pretty great deal in my book!

I’d love to hear from those of you planning to take advantage of this wonderful promo!

Did You Celebrate Fashion’s Night Out? A Peek At Sephora’s TEMPTU Event

September 11, 2009

I didn’t actually plan to stop by the Sephora Fashion’s Night Out event at their Fifth Avenue store (I happened to be walking from one event to another) but I’m a sucker for live models in store windows! The Fifth Ave. Sephora location teamed up with TEMPTU (with clothing provided by Just Cavalli) to provide free airbrush experiences for all, and had tattoo applications and other TEMPTU fun going on with the models in the store windows!

The event (especially the live women in the windows) created quite the scene on Fifth Avenue but I managed to squeeze in fora few close-ups.

I actually own one of TEMPTU’s temporary tattoo kits, which I know I’ve promised to review for you. I’m a little back-logged right now but I hope to have it coming soon!

And I just had to post a close-up of this model’s face because I think her makeup is just gorgeous – if only neutrals looked as hot on me!

How was your Thursday night? Did you happen to stop by any Fashion’s Night Out events in your area to celebrate the launch of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week?

Rouge G de Guerlain Custom Engraving Event @ Bergdorf Goodman

April 28, 2009

Don’t mind the poor photo quality, my camera battery decided to die on my so I had to resort to using my camera-phone =X.

The engraver hard at work. He was such a sweet man!

Working on my lipstick! 🙂

A cascade of letters strewn across his workspace.

And the end result: Isn’t she a beauty?

My Bergdorf Gift Card Event Haul!

April 27, 2009

I’ve literally been waiting months for Bergdorf’s gift card event. You get $25 off your purchase of $100 or more and most SA’s will split up your purchases so that you get $25 off every $100 if they can, plus Bergdorf has the best GWP’s. Bergdorf’s event was going on last week, so I definitely got my shop on!

I had zero intention of picking up anything Guerlain, but they had free engraving on their new Rouge G de Guerlain lipsticks (see a few swatches HERE) and I just couldn’t resist picking one up so that I could get my name on it. Silly I know!

You’ll get to see photos of it in a few days. I also stopped by the Shu counter and picked up their #18 foundation brush and their Hard Eyebrow Pencil (at the suggestion of Nicole). Now I’ve been a devoted Anastasia eyebrow pencil user for years and never thought I’d stray, but this pencil is seriously awesome and blows my Anastasia pencil out of the water. Plus it’s so ridiculously long. See a photo of it on me at the end of this post!

And my Shu Uemura GWP. What’s great about Bergdrof’s GWP’s is that the samples are always much much larger than the samples that come in the gift bags at Bloomingdales, Saks, etc. I got a sample of cleansing oil, Depsea Water in Bergamot (I love these–I have a review of them somewhere on the blog), Phyto-Black Lift Night Cream, and (not picture) Phyto-Black Lift Eye Cream.

I’ll be making an official announcement in a separate post at some point, but I’m leaving for Korea on Wednesday and I’ll be gone for 10 days. I’m planning on taking all these great samples with me so that I can keep my complexion in tip-top shape while I’m away. Plus the Shu Depsea Facial Mists are fabulous for in-flight use; they keep your complexion from succumbing to the dryness of the recycled airplane air.

And as promised, a photo of my brows after having used the Shu Hard Pencil. I know it doesn’t look all that impressive, but keep in mind that I have very very sparse eyebrows that need a lot of TLC. (And please excuse the fact that I’m not wearing any makeup other than the eyebrow pencil.)

I’ll be doing an in-depth review of what makes the pencil so great pretty soon so stay tuned for that. All in all I had a pretty stellar Saturday. The SO even surprised me by getting me an early birthday gift from Louis Vuitton!!! ❤ But you'll have to wait until I'm back from Korea to see photos of that.

Freeze 24/7 is kicking off the official launch of their Freeze Minerals line (more info on it HERE) with an all-day event at Henri Bendels this Monday, April 6th. Stop by to receive a free makeover, complimentary mini-facial and free skincare consultation; PLUS, get a free Freeze sampler bag of goodies with any $75 purchase.

Freeze Minerals were recently featured in the New York Post’s HAUTE LIST and the results were described as being “remarkable”–I’m definitely interested!

Henri Bendel’s Beauty Playground Event Photos

October 20, 2008

I thought you ladies might enjoy some photos of Henry Bendel’s Beauty Playground beauty event. As you can see in my window shot, with a purchase of $125 you get one of caddies shown in the window (which would’ve been cuter had they had Bendel’s signature brown striping btw) and six deluxe beauty treats of your choosing, and with a $150 purchase you get to choose 10.

I didn’t actually purchase anything since this was the same weekend as Saks’ F&F, but believe me I was might tempted after seeing some of these “samples”! One of the items you could select was Per-fekt Beauty’s Skin Perfection Gel to Go in the same size that I had purchased for $17.50! LOL I would’ve just taken 10 of these as my beauty gift.

The event runs through today so if you happen to be in the area definitely stop by!

A few shots of Bendel’s windows just because they were pretty:
