One of the best, the very best things about being a cosmetics junkie is the phrase "free gift with purchase" isn't it?
I wait until Bonus Time comes around to buy my foundation, I scrape every shred of moisturiser out of tubs in the hope they will last so I can buy again at GWP time and I can get my bag full of luxury size samples.
Free mini mascaras; teeney Jucy Tubes, baby bottles of perfume and tubes of mosituriser and exfoliator are all things which fill me with indescribable joy.
In fact when I see a good Gift With Purchase I'm all over it. This one is brilliant - Harvey Nicks sent me the gift bag they're giving out with a spend of €160 on at least two products. It's worth over €240 and is filled with TONS of brilliant stuff. The makeup bag itself is really funky and practical, holds load and is tough and sturdy. I instantly rushed to fling everything out of my old crappy makeup bag that filth and full of smashed eyeshadow and replaced it with this one.
This is a whopper of a gift bag and I particularly like the Laura Mercier primer and the Bliss Triple Oxygen Cleanser which are brilliant sizes and will last to yonks and beyond.
Which gift bags do you love the most and - tell the truth - how many gift makeup bags have you got lying around?
