Mega Lolapalooza: Burberry and Le Métier de Beauté, Oh My!!

This is what happens when you fall in love with certain products, lack a certain measure of self control, have lots of gift cards, and hear the magical words gift with purchase. Is this unmitigated insanity? Sure.  Burberry and LMdB gluttony? Absolutely. Am I a card-carrying member of the coalition for makeup magpies? Undoubtedly.

    1. Hi 3bDiva, You did hear those words!! It was part of the Nordstrom Customer Appreciation Event that they were doing at their stores- I managed to slide in at the last moment and was lucky enough to get GWP- apparently it was a two day event. I wish that it was still going on- because I would be compelled to order again!!! I think that I did enough damage though!! :) Hopefully next time I will find out in advance so that I can publicize it widely!! :D

    1. And I'm drunk on Burberry!!! WOOHOOOO! I think that I have outdone myself this time! I left most of this stuff at home so that I wouldn't be too distracted and could focus. Once I get home I will start the swatch-fest and begin posting. I really am quite smitten. Of course the lip mists, lip covers and lip glosses will be a no go for you because of all of the fragrance. I need to sniff the blushes more thoroughly because I barely looked at them before going out of town, but they do seem to have some fragrance. However, I don't remember it being as pronounced as the Chanel JC formula. :D

    1. It was one of the customer appreciation events at Nordstrom, and most of the lines were giving away all sorts of products. The LMdB gift was an eye pencil and a lip brush. I'm not really sure what the gift was supposed to be, or what the minimum purchase was because I called on the day of the event and they were in a frenzied state. The SA couldn't get me much information so said she was going to give me whatever the gift was with my order even if I didn't meet the minimum. As far as Burberry goes, some of the items that were being gifted seemed to have run out- so I was given other things. I was given 2 lip glosses, an unused tester lipstick, an eye shadow, a gift bag, some samples of lip mists and concealers, fragrance samples, a mirror compact, and body oil. I bought an outrageous amount, and kept adding to my list- so they were quite generous with me. I hadn't even said that I was a beauty blogger!! What I learned was that it really pays to shop during the customer appreciation event!

  10. Holy crap woman! That is awesome! You are my kindred spirit! Hey you had gift cards. What's the problem? I've been know to do crap like that with no gift cards OR money!

    1. I think that I may need an intervention!!! I always suspected that we were kindred spirits! :-) I did have gift cards, but I was out-of-pocket a bit as well. We really are kindred-- I have also had no gift cards or money before, and would nearly have contemplated an eeny meeny miny moe method to determine whether I should by a lip gloss or lunch! <3

    1. I did go a bit over the top-- rather than narrowing down the choices that interested me, I threw caution to the wind and got all of them!!!!!!!!!!!
