Barneys Beauty Bag Event

OMG! Finally my Barneys beauty bag arrived in the mail!! Every September Barneys New York has their Beauty Bag Event. This is the very best GWP (gift with purchase) available. I found out about it 4 years ago and I have been participating ever since. You have to spend $175 to get the gift but I am telling you it is so so so so worth it. I usually wait until I need a new perfume or a bunch of makeup. You can find out which weekend in September it will be by doing a quick google search or by calling one of the stores a few months in advance.

There is not a Barneys in St. Louis so for the past few years I just call into one of the New York locations and ask to place my order over the phone. The sales associates work on commission and they are always more than happy to take your order. This year I had a slight problem – they forgot to put my order in the computer. I waited two weeks for my bag to come before calling to ask what was going on. They were super nice about it and sent me all of my stuff over night for no extra charge.

So what is in the bag? Tons of samples and full size products. I have included pictures below. One year there was a $500 Cle de peau face cream (full size!). This year there are full size lip sticks, eye shadows, nail polish, mascara and soap. There are also lots of half-size products like Sunday Riley’s Stem Cell Serum (when would I ever be able to try this?). If you can, I strongly suggest you participate next year.

This is the cute little bag that everything comes in. Every year it gets better.

  1. Stephers, thanks for giving this loyal reader a head’s up. And I’m being very sarcastic.
