Estee Lauder GWP at Macy’s!
12 March, 2009
(or The Bon, as us true Seattleites call it…)
As I was walking through the mall yesterday, I saw that Estee Lauder has a really nice GWP going on right now! It’s free with a $27.50 purchase, meaning that you can get all the swag for free if you buy, say, the illuminating powder.
The contents are pretty decent. You get two makeup bags-a large coral-orange and then a smaller light pink. I posted a piece awhile back about how you should never HAVE to pay for a makeup bag on its own, or at least not that much, and here you get two of the bags. Every set will include what they call the “10-day supply” of their new Sumptuous Bold Volume mascara, as well as a travel-sized thingy of eye makeup remover.Now this is where it gets fun: pick your lipstick, eye quad, and moisturizer. The sets are Warm or Cool, so if you get the warm you are getting Copper Glow lipstick and the Truffle eye quad, while the Cool will have the Rich Currant lipstick and the Berry Quartz quad. As far as the moisturizer, it’s either the Time Zone SPF 15 (a line/wrinkle-reducing formula), or DayWear Plus SPF 15 (an antioxidant formula).
The best part? If you’re going to buy $55 worth of Estee Lauder on the Macy’s website, use the code GIFTME to get free standard shipping AND a free full-sized cleanser! Macy’s pulls out all the stops on their GWP’s, and this is definitely no exception.
What do I recommend?
Fleur de Lys highlight powder-$32
A couple of Pure Colour Crystal lipsticks-$22 each. They sadly discontinued my Passionfruit, which was a nice subdued red, but Crystal Rose is apparently nice.
Nutritious Vita-Mineral Loose Powder-$33.50. This is the new mineral makeup with tons of antioxidants, pomegranate being one of the big ones.
