Recently, I made my routine (pretty much daily) call to my sister. I could hear some background noise, so I asked what she was up to. She was at Nordstrom buying a “real” makeup kit for her daughter to play with. Her daughter had asked her for real makeup to play with for her 10th birthday. I don’t blame her. I definitely know, and have experienced, the limitations of play makeup. After my sister gave her a few of her old, nice makeup pieces, she now knows the limitations, too! Ha! But how do you get a real makeup kit for your daughter without spending a fortune?!?
Well, leave it to my sister (@tellittoyourneighbor) to find the solution! During her search, she saw Lancôme was offering this amazing makeup kit that included $350 worth of makeup that you could buy as a gift with purchase for $63.50! So, she bought an eyelash curler for herself and then purchased the $63.50 makeup kit for my niece! So genius, right?! And then get this, Nordstrom reached out the exact same day to see if I would like share their gift with purchase beauty offers. Ummmm, yes! Because every mama, grandma, aunt, and godmother needs to know about my sister’s genius idea! It’s the best little girl gift EVER!
– Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover (4.2 oz.)
– Cils Booster XL Mascara Base (0.18 oz.)
– Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate (0.67 oz.)
– La Vie Est Belle Eau de Parfum (0.13 oz.)
– Train Case
Glam (this is the one pictured) also includes:
– 2 Color Design Eyeshadow & Blush Subtil Palettes in Edgy Day & Edgy Night (0.18 oz. each)
– 2 Color Design Lipcolors in All Done Up! and Wannabe (0.14 oz. each)
– Monsieur Big Mascara (0.27 oz.)
– 2 Juicy Tubes Lip Glosses in Tickled Pink and Electro Marshmallow (0.5 oz. each)
How cute is the train case on my niece’s counter? My sister then told me how she remembered one of her friends always received a fancy makeup set from her grandmother for Christmas, and she always thought it was so cool! How fun is that?!? I’m thinking about getting one for my goddaughter! Won’t I be the coolest godmother EVER?!
In hindsight, my sister said the item she should have purchased to buy this gift with purchase makeup kit was an eyeshadow brush, so her daughter could play with the makeup immediately after opening.
Here’s what the cart looks like:
…the eyelash curler and gift with purchase (makeup kit).
And look! You get an additional gift with purchase! It’s our lucky day! That’s a pretty good value! Shoot, you could potentially take care of three gifts here!
