Hello, and welcome to the The Lipstick League!
Question of the Week: Have you ever bought a product JUST because you want the GWP (gift with purchase?)
That would be an affirmative! Although it has been a quick minute, or two … or three, in days past I have been know to get my hustle on down to the Clinique and Estee Lauder counters to stake my claim on whatever products were offered for especially enticing gifts with purchase.
That reminds me that it’s been a long time since I’ve purchased anything through a beauty counter! It’s crazy how the beauty industry has changed over the past several years.
These days I keep on top of the Beauty Rewards from Sephora and if there’s anything that piques my interest, I might indulge in a sample or a set. The last set I got was a Laura Mercier set for 500 points, and I’ll admit it was pretty sweet! Otherwise, I am hoarding my points in hopes I can nab one of their super exclusive higher set points at some point. I suppose that’s the reason I hold onto my Sephora Play subscription although it hasn’t been very exciting lately. I love seeing those extra 50 points add up!
