Meilily Product Photos: Ineke Perfumes Sample Collection!

Nothing makes me happier than a good sampler set, and I was in heaven when I discovered that Ineke Perfumes has a fantastic and affordable sample collection of Ineke Eau de Parfum Sprays.

The Ineke Deluxe Sample Collection is extremely well done and packaged amazingly. You get six unique deluxe samples of fragrance (A-F), each mini spray bottle (1.5 ml) individually packaged in a little matchstick size box and then placed in a beautiful pull-out box decorated with lovely calligraphy.

Meilily: Aveda Comforting Tea

Meilily Product Pick! Aveda Tea!

If it is anywhere as cold where you are as it is here, you may enjoy curling up and drinking lots of hot Aveda Tea. This is one of my favorite teas out there from one of my favorite beauty brands, Aveda. While I will admit it’s a little odd to be drinking tea from a company that is best known for its natural haircare and skincare products, I have gotten past the point of caring. Aveda Comforting Tea – and they only make one kind – is a unique tea that, I’ve heard, can get even coffee lovers hooked!

Aveda Tea has a warm and naturally sweet flavor that is not overly herbal or astringent, and it instead manages to taste nothing like the typically overdone flavors of mass-market caffeine-free tea.  It tastes more like a unique beverage that fits somewhere between asian loose leaf tea, mellow kona coffee, and Guiness. Ok, perhaps it is far from tasting anything like Guiness or coffee, but I would say Aveda Tea is to tea as Guiness is to beer. It’s just › Continue reading

Meilily Product Pick and Photos! Giorgio Armani Beauty Gift with Purchase!
As promised, here are more details and photos of the Giorgio Armani gift with purchase from The Beauty Event at Neiman Marcus.

During The Beauty Event at Neiman Marcus, get a Giorgio Armani makeup and skincare gift when you spend at least $100 $150* at the Giorgio Armani counter. (Combine this with other Neiman Marcus Beauty Event gift offers, and you could end up with multiple gifts with purchase!)

*Note: Neiman Marcus just changed the Giorgio Armani offer, raising the minimum purchase (from $100 to $150) and also changing the gift items. Apparently the original Armani beauty gift was too good to last!

The Original Giorgio Armani Gift with Purchase (Shown) Includes:
- Shine Lipstick (Shade 50, mauve rose) full size
- Eyes to Kill Mascara deluxe sample 0.06 fl. oz.
- Crema Nera Cream sample 1 gram. › Continue reading

Victoria’s Secret Goes Au Natural: Introducing Naturally Victoria’s Secret + Free Tote Offers

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009 | Free Stuff, Product Launches, Skincare, Stores | Comments Off

Introducing Naturally Victoria's Secret

Introducing Naturally Victoria

Meilily Free Stuff Alert!
While the name “Victoria’s Secret” and the term “natural beauty” may not be totally synonymous, lingerie giant Victoria’s Secret may now be trying to change that with the launch of their new natural beauty line called Naturally Victoria’s Secret.

The Naturally line, available now in stores and online starting April 1, is supposed to feature products with natural ingredients in five light scents, though as yet it is still unclear to me what else they might be bringing to the table when it comes to natural beauty products. (I guess I will just have to check out the line in person and post here later!)

So, to kick off the launch of Naturally, Victoria’s Secret is giving customers free stuff when they purchase Naturally Victoria’s Secret products in stores.  (The gift with purchase is valued at $38.)

What:  Free Tote & Deluxe Samples with $25 Naturally Victoria’s Secret Purchase
When:  March 24 – April 4, 2009
Where: At Victoria’s Secret Stores Only (not online)

Victoria’s Secret has been selling beauty products made by other brands alongside their own beauty products for a while now, but the launch of the Victoria’s Secret Naturally line may be an indication that Victoria’s Secret is › Continue reading

Free Fragrance Samples: Nordstrom & Allure

Monday, October 27th, 2008 | Fragrance, Free Stuff, Stores | 2 Comments

Allure November 2008 issue

Allure November 2008 issue

The latest issue of Allure, the November 2008 issue featuring Eva Longoria, is a veritable minefield of fragrance samples, ranging from Calvin Klein’s Secret Obsession to Paris Hilton’s new Fairy Dust. One of the best things about this issue of Allure, though, is the Beauty 101 guide to perfumes.

The Beauty 101 section in Allure usually features how-to cards with lists of recommended products on the back, but in this issue, the cards instead feature special fragrance offers from Nordstrom!  Allure teamed up with Nordstrom to bring us these fragrance offers for Nordstrom’s Fragrance Festival event.  Many of the tear-out cards are essentially vouchers for free perfume samples, redeemable at Nordstrom’s fragrance counters. [Warning, not all counters carry all the fragrances.] › Continue reading
