Barneys New York “Love Yourself” Event, March 2015


I always know that spring is almost here when I receive my promotional card for the Barneys New York “beauty bag event,” officially known as “LOVE YOURSELF.”

The details for this year:

March 10-14, 2015

“Spend $200 in-store or online in beauty, treatment or fragrances and receive a women’s beauty bag or men’s dopp kit filled with our favorites.”  (One per customer, while supplies last, etc.)

Lola’s Secret Beauty Blog has a photo of the bag and its contents—see here.

I’m sitting out this round, but I thought I’d just pass along the information. Have fun, shoppers!

With your purchase/preorder of $200 and up, you get this bag including the items (full and deluxe) shown below.

Barneys Love Yourself Beauty Event for Fall 2013 (with update!)


It’s that time of year again, only slightly later: Barneys’ annual fall beauty bag event has been delayed slightly due to major renovations at the Madison Avenue flagship store, but you can still Love Yourself from October 15-19 .

As you can see from the mailer above, the minimum purchase to receive a gift-bag full of samples has risen yet again, to $250. Ouch. On the other hand, if you’re in New York and just need to pick up one or two little things this month, you can still enjoy experiencing the newly unveiled Foundation, the beauty and fragrance floor.  I visited a few weeks ago and saw a few counters that had already been completed, and they really did look promising. I’m looking forward to getting the full effect on my next visit.

**UPDATE: For a peek at the bag’s contents, visit Lola’s Secret Beauty Blog.**

Barneys “Love Your Self” Beauty Bag Event, February 2013


I just received a promotional mailer for Barneys New York’s winter 2013 gift-with-purchase event. From February 13 through February 16, if you spend $200 in-store or online on cosmetics and fragrances, you’ll receive “a cosmetics bag filled with our favorites.”

This beauty bag offer is taking place at Barneys locations in New York (naturally), Beverly Hills, Chicago, Boston, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Scottsdale, and Seattle.

Are you tempted to splurge on a fragrance or some fancy skincare that’s been on your wishlist for a while?

(If I learn anything about the contents of the gift bag—it’s usually a secret until the event actually begins—I’ll post an update!)
