My birthday was in February and I decided to buy myself the new Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess fragrance and body shimmer. I will be reviewing them soon (a quick preview – they are AWESOME), but in the meantime I wanted to share the freebies I got when I bought my goodies from Macy’s. This GWP is still available online until March 30th.
Isn’t this Lilly Pulitzer bag super cute? And wow, there were a ton of great things inside.
I am fascinated with the dual-ended concealer and lip gloss. I think it is genius! Touching up dark circles throughout the day does more for helping me look refreshed than almost anything…except for touching up my lip gloss. So both together is fantastic.
After shopping at Macy’s, I made my way to Ulta because they sent me a coupon for a free birthday gift. I had no idea what the gift coupon was for and the surprise was worth the visit.
I have never tried anything from the CK one line, so I am pretty excited. Has anyone tried this mascara? I haven’t cracked it open yet since I have so many mascaras already in rotation.
Next up: Sephora. Of course I had to get my Beauty Insider birthday gift from them! It was a pretty sweet Make Up For Ever set with a deluxe size mascara and lipstick.
While I was at Sephora I decided to buy yet another pink Nars blush…it’s an illness, I know. This one is called New Order, and it’s a ‘highlighting blush’. I think of it as the very light shimmery pink cousin of Albatross.
Unfortunately, this was a real disappointment for me. It’s so pretty, but it is the first Nars cheek product I haven’t loved. It’s very powdery and when I put it on all I see is shimmer. I ended up liking my free gift from Sephora better than I liked this blush!
I love the free birthday gifts from Ulta and Sephora; it definitely pays to have an account with them. And if you like Estee Lauder products, now is the time to stock up because the GWP is terrific. - Lisa
