Barneys New York Love Yourself Gift Bag

Barneys Love Yourself Beauty Bag Gift With Purchase 2014 Barneys New York Love Yourself Gift BagDon’t you just love gifts with purchase and beauty minis? Some of my favorite product discoveries have been items I happened upon because they were a gift with purchase or some kind salesperson slipped me a sample. If you like these tiny treats as much as I do, here’s a deal you won’t want to miss.

Right now through February 15, Barneys New York is hosting its latest “Love Yourself” event. With any $250 cosmetics, treatment, fragrance or apothecary purchase (including men’s fragrance and grooming), you’ll receive a gift bag full of goodies from Barneys best beauty collections.

The darlings at Barneys sent me a press sample of the gift bag – and let me tell you, it’s fabulous. As a beauty expert, I’ve reviewed thousands of products and I’m familiar with most beauty brands. But there were quite a few goodies in this bag that I’d never heard of and never tried – and now I’m wondering how I lived life without them.

This promotion is valid on U.S. orders only, one bag per customer, while supplies last.

Hey All! I’m sure many of you are wondering, with this new Urban Decay Naked 3 palette release, if it’s right for you – or if you if you’re a UD Naked palettes newbie, which one is a good fit.  As this is their third palette in the Naked series, I feel like it’s pretty important to understand how this one compares to the previously released Naked and Naked 2 palettes. Naked 3 has an overall rose gold theme with 12 eyeshadows in a pretty, wave-textured tin case.

Each palette has 12 shadows, generally flowing from light to dark. The current selling palettes all come with a synthetic eyeshadow brush. Generally speaking, Naked has mostly warm neutrals, Naked 2 is in the neutral-to-taupe range with more drastic light and dark shadows, and Naked 3 is distinctly more pink with a lot of mid-to-light shades. Naked 3 has no copycat shadows in any other collection, which is nice for you palette hoarders out there (you know who you are!) who don’t want dupes.

So let’s break it down: (more…)
