More Details on the Neiman Marcus Gift and Brand-Specific Gifts With Purchase…
During this Beauty Event, to get the Neiman Marcus beauty gift you just need to spend at least $100 in the beauty department (any brands). In addition, select brands are offering brand-specific gift specials, which require a minimum (per-brand) purchase. Brands with gift with purchase offers include Giorgio Armani, Kiehl’s, La Mer, Bliss, Fresh, Jo Malone, Shu, Nars, Rock & Republic and more.
Photos of the Neiman Marcus Beauty Event Gift Items:
While this year’s Neiman Marcus Beauty Event gift with purchase is somewhat meager in size (~5 items), a few of the free gift items seem quite nice, and the leopard-print tote looks rather charming in person.
The Prada fragrance sample comes in an elegant little envelope…
and the Chanel Cristalle fragrance sample looks quite clean and decent-sized…
However, instead of actually including a sample of Dior’s Diorskin Nude makeup, Neiman Marcus simply includes an empty sample jar that you must take to the Dior counter to get a “week’s supply of your perfect shade of Nude.” Hmmmm.
Overall, this is what you get in the Neiman Marcus gift tote (without all the fluff)…
Combine it with a brand-specific gift with purchase, and you could have yourself a decent haul!
More Meilily Beauty Event Shopping Tips:
Good time to get Armani makeup! One of the best gift with purchases from The Beauty Event is from Giorgio Armani cosmetics, with one of the lowest minimum purchase amounts ($95). While this minimum is still not that low, other brand minimums are as high as $300! Since Giorgio Armani makeup rarely is on sale and rarely has a nice gift with purchase, this is a great time to buy!** The Neiman Marcus Giorgio Armani gift with purchase includes a full size lipstick, a deluxe mascara sample, a skincare sample, a mini Luminous Skin Foundation, and a small black satin makeup bag! Keep an eye out for photos here…
[Note: this gwp offer was changed to include a sample of Armani Fluid Sheer and slightly fewer items.]
Pssst! Home Scents qualify too! Online, it looks like you can even purchase home scents such as Nest candles to qualify for the Neiman Marcus Beauty Event gift. I recommend the Wasabi Pear or Bamboo Nest candles ($14-$32) or, if you aren’t on a budget, the more pricey Citron de Vigne candle by Fresh ($48)!
Happy Shopping! from Meilily
**P.S. If you’re looking to buy Giorgio Armani cosmetics but don’t want to have to make a minimum purchase, you can currently get 20% off Giorgio Armani cosmetics and skincare at their new website until September 18, 2009 (with free shipping on orders of $50) using code MAKEOVER.
