Barneys New York LOVE YOURSELF Bag Event Details and Step-Up Gifts | March 10-14, 2015

Barneys Love Yourself Bag Event is happening NOW!
(Affiliate links)
 **I will be UPDATING this often so bookmark this page**
I know that you have been waiting for details about the upcoming Barneys LOVE YOURSELF Bag Event, and here are some for you!! I will be updating this regularly, and am waiting to hear more about line specific Step-Up Gifts.
SEE MY ONLINE STEP-UP GIFTS POST HERE
SEE ONLINE STEP-UP GIFTS PAGE AT BARNEYS NEW YORK HERE

-The Bag Event will run from March 10-14, 2015.

-Barneys is already pre-selling- this is the best way to reserve the gift bag and step-up gifts for you.

-If you use your Barneys New York credit card during the pre-sale you can take advantage of Double Points (Double Points is March 2-8).

-The minimum purchase to get the gift bag is $200.00 (this is based upon total pre-tax purchases in the cosmetics & fragrance department- not limited to a single counter or line). If you spend $200.00 before tax from the store shipping is free (US only. Shipping fees apply to international addresses).

-You can order online to get the bag, but the Step-Up Gifts will likely differ. I will bring you that information as soon as it is provided to me.

ONE BAG PER CUSTOMER & WHILE SUPPLIES LAST! CANNOT BE COMBINED WITH ANY OTHER OFFER.

-Step-up gifts are line specific gifts beyond the gift bag. For instance, if you spend a certain amount of money with a particular line that is participating, then they will give you an additional gift with purchase from their line. There is nearly always a minimum purchase price, and they often give full-sized products- making it all the more tempting. You will still get the Gift Bag even if you spend enough in a particular line to qualify for their step up gift.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (if you have more questions- just ask!):

Q: Is the $200.00 minimum for the gift bag before or after tax?
A: It is a pre-tax minimum.

Q: Is it really that important that I pre-purchase what I want?
A: It certainly is a good idea. Things sell out quickly during this event, and they quite often run out of the really hot step-up gifts (sometimes before the sale even officially begins).

Q: Will there be any free international shipping for this event?
A: I was told that free shipping is US only if you spend $200.00 pretax.

Q: If you could give me one piece of advice about the Bag Event, what would it be?
A: Set a realistic budget that you can live with and afford, and stick to it! The Bag Event happens twice a year-- you can do it again! Make a list of what you want and do your best to stick to it-- otherwise it can become a very very expensive event, trust me.

Q: Is there an advantage to ordering from a store over the phone rather than online (since I don't have a store near me)?
A: That depends, but there can be. Here's why: a) First of all, if they sell out of what you want online it may take some time for you to receive notification since they sell so much during these events. This can sometimes mean that you find out after the Bag Event ends, and thus you miss out on the event altogether,  b) Sales associates often add in other samples, and often include their business cards so that you can establish a relationship with them (and then they call you to alert you of specials, pull step-up gifts for you etc.). Trust me, this makes all of the difference in the world, and c) You can be eligible for free shipping with in-store over the phone purchases (provided that you make the $200.00 shipping minimum to a US address). HOWEVER, the online Love Yourself Event features different (and FABULOUS) line specific Step-Up gifts, and the convenience of shopping online cannot be sufficiently underscored. The best way to optimize your online shopping experience is to order sooner rather than later so that you get what you want before things begin to sell out. This is an AMAZING event and so many people shop the event in-store and online that things can sell out very fast!

These Step-Up Gifts are those currently available at the Beverly Hills location at (310) 276-4400 Ext. 5613 (not online) and at The NYC Madison Avenue location (212) 833-2004 and (212) 833-2005

I have had several requests about line specific step-up gifts from my beloved readers- so here are a few of them (click on name brand to direct you to their page on the Barneys website). If it is currently left blank that means that I am awaiting information about what the Step-Up Gifts will be, or whether they are having any.

PLEASE NOTE: If you see things that you want you should be aware that Barneys is already pre-selling, and that they may substitute gifts as they begin to sell out.

I will be updating this post-- so bookmark it and check it frequently for any updates, or added specials!!

I would not suggest waiting until the last minute to pre-order, because some things really sell quickly during the event-- it's a good idea to call the counters that you are interested in to reserve your bag and all of the goodies that you want to buy.

Until then, if you are planning to partake- might I suggest that you set a realistic budget, check your stash, and make a list. I tend to stalk the Barneys website to help me make my list-- so that might work for you as well.

If you have any questions, post them in the comments section below, and I will try to get an answer for you. This is preferable to emailing me since I invariably am asked the same questions-- so this way everyone gets the answers.

If you want to place an order in store, feel free to call the Beverly Hills Location (310) 276-4400 Ext. 5613 or the NYC Madison Avenue location (212) 833-2004 and (212) 833-2005.

Are you planning on partaking? If so, what are you thinking of getting?

    1. Me too!!!!!!! Kiehl's is awesome! It's so great to work with someone who really knows everyone on the floor and all of the lines! That Cynthia is so fun and generous makes it such a great experience, and of course all of the goodies make it even better!

  3. See, you have to spend quite a bit of money but at least you get nicely rewarded for it! They could learn a thing or two from that here in Switzerland :-(

    1. Sorry, the last comment that I wrote (and deleted) was in error, Melissa! I thought that you were commenting on my "What's in My Purse Post" and something didn't make sense LOL! Then I went back and read it and realized that you were talking about the Barneys gift bag and step-up gifts! Yes, you definitely have to spend quite a bit of money, but they definitely give you some amazing gifts with purchase! It's too bad that this type of GWP event is not available in Switzerland! A lot of people wait to make these purchases during these bag events because they want to get the most out of their luxury purchases!

  4. I placed my order on Sunday! Found myself stalking here too much to wait and called the store for help/info. You have more info here, though, than the Rep with whom I spoke. However, she was very nice and seemed like she'll give me some extra goodies. Can't wait!

    1. I had so much to compile that I couldn't get it up that early. It's still far enough away from the event that they are still waiting to hear what all of the participating vendors are going to give as step-up gifts! I'm glad that you placed your order and that the person who helped you took good care of you! What did you order?

      Delete
    2. I ordered Radical products: Extreme Repair Cream and Multi Brightening Serum. It was enough for a step up gift and she said she'd throw in another step up gift, some Radical samples and some Tatcha samples. So I am very hopeful!

      Delete
    3. Did you get anything? I am considering a Tatcha order but I only want to do it if I can get another bag. Not sure how to go about that.

      Delete
    4. It sounds like you really scored! Excellent product choices too! I haven't ordered anything yet. I have been so swamped at work that I haven't had time to really think about what I want. The TATCHA Step-Ups definitely make it worth shopping the event! I don't blame yo for wanting another bag if you spend that much. You'll get the bag if you make the $200.00 minimum. Plus you aren't even shopping from the same store– they will automatically give you the bag once you reach the minimum purchase price. If you want some things from TATCHA, this is definitely the time to get them!

  6. My first experience with Rituals was from this bag. I love that they include the full size product. I need to study Surratt to see if I want to do an order. The lipslick I have is one of my favorite lip products.

  8. Wowzers... girl you got so many fun goodies in that bag. I think that is one thing I do wish Hawaii would have would be events so I could take part in it. We don't have any here so it sucks. But you got great goods girl. Looking forward to your thoughts on any of these you plan to review ;)

  9. Lola, this sounds like a great event. I have always ordered online, but as I'm browsing through, they are out of a lot of items I was interested in buying. Would you recommend calling the NYC store now (I'm from upstate New York) before the event even started?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Ka,

      A lot of people prefer to shop this event online, and they have lots of gorgeous line specific gifts as well (and they seem to get better and better). I always do a separate post for all of the online Step-Up gifts, and will again as soon as they become available.

      I would check back online to see if they have restocked, but if they haven't then I would definitely call either the NYC or BH store since they can both ship to you. If you know what you want, then it's a good idea to call now since they are already pre-selling, and they will likely be selling out of lots of things! If you call NYC use the numbers above, and ask for my friend Irene. If you call BH use the number above and ask for my friend Ana! Whoever you call, let them know that I sent you and they will take special care of you! Keep me posted! What are you thinking of getting?

      Delete
    2. I may wait then a couple of days to see if they restocked, and if nothing changes, I'll call over the weekend.

      I was thinking of getting GA Luminous Silk foundation and Chantecaille loose powder, but they don't have my shades anymore on the website. There is also several Oribe products that I want to restock on (I cannot live without their styling products anymore).
      I really want to try The Organic Pharmacy - I'm looking for a good serum/oil, and their Antioxidant Face Serum seems to fit what I need (and I remember you writing on your blog about them).
      I'm also tempted by the Rituals line - I had a sample of their shower foam, and I loved it.
      Thank you again for your help, and for recommending the consultants. This is extremely helpful!

      Kate

    3. Hi Kate! Oh, I love your selections! Oribe is definitely one of my very favorite haircare lines! The ORganic Pharmacy Antioxidant Face Serum is absolutely magnificent, and I highly recommend it! It is one of my favorite face oils! RITUALS makes wonderful products, and you will get a full size Shower foam in the Gift Bag– which is how I first tried the line a few seasons back! It was absolutely my pleasure! They are both amazing SA, and I am sure that they will both have extra samples for you.:-) Helen

      Delete
    4. I would also probably call them now, if the website hasn't restocked already since the store is in the midst of pre-selling, and you can still get double points on your Barneys card (if you have one). They are already selling so much, and will likely sell through their stock on the more popular things! <3

      Delete
    5. Thank you for the heads-up. I'll call them today then :) So excited!

      Delete
    6. Hi Kate, You are very welcome! I definite think that's a very good idea! Please let me know what you end up getting!!!!!! I'm sooooo excited for you! :)

    7. Hello! So Irene was not available yesterday, but she called me today and I just placed the order. You were right - she was extremely helpful and offered samples of different products.
      I ended up getting Oribe's Dry Texturizing Spray, Soft Laquer, and Foundation Mist. I haven't tried the latter two, but I have been using the volumizing mousse and dry texturizing spray for over two years. Once you start using their products, there is no coming back ;)
      I also got Sunday Riley Good Genes - best exfoliator ever, and it lasts a long time (I only use it once, twice a week). I have their Juno and Artemis oils - have you tried them? What do you think? I really like Juno's effect on my skin, but the smell is somewhat bothersome to me. It may be silly, but I don't think I'll repurchase for this reason. I'm looking into Darphin oils now (I ordered a sample of their products a couple of days ago). Have you tried anything from their range?
      And finally, I got Chantecaille's Loose Powder. I heard great things, and I'm looking forward to checking it out. I ended up not ordering the Luminous Silk - I wasn't sure about the right shade, and I'd rather try it at the counter.
      I'm looking forward to getting my package. Thank you so much for your help and recommendations!

      Delete
    8. Hi Kate,

      Yes, she is a true sweetheart! What a nice selection of things that you purchased! Yes, I used to use SR Juno, and I loved it, but then I eventually found other oils that liked better. It's not silly at all, if a scent doesn't resonate with you then the experience of using it usually isn't worth it! I had a WONDERFUL Darphin facial a while ago, and the esthetician's used a few of their glorious oils on me! It was a sublime experience. I have several samples of their skincare products, but I don't have a single full size oil from the line! I definitely need to get one at some point! Their products are really lovely! Chantecaille makes some really amazing products, and their Lip Chic and Brilliant Gloss formulas are amazing. I haven't tried their loose powder, but have heard that it's wonderful.

      I can't wait until you get your package, and I hope that you are deliriously happy with everything that you get! Absolutely my pleasure! I am so happy that I could help you! :-)

    9. How did you order samples of the Darphin oils? Or was it samples with a purchase? Thanks.

      Delete
    10. I ordered it from their website - it was only 10 bucks. Here's the link: http://www.darphin.com/product/8512/33302/Whats-New/Best-of-Darphin-Intro-Kit/index.tmpl
      I just finished the Chamomile Oil, and it's probably the best oil I have ever tried. Smells amazing, calms and hydrates my skin like a dream, and a 1.4 ml sample lasted me 6 days!
      Now I'm on to trying the Rose one. The moisturizer is great as well, so I will definitely be placing a larger order soon, even though I barely placed an order at Barney's (I can't wait to get the package).

      Delete
    11. That's a great deal!!! Thanks for the link, Kate! I will have to try the Chamomile Oil! I think that I have tried the Rose Oil at Space NK, but will have to look at that one as well! I remember playing with their moisturizers and being exceedingly impressed. Plus, I loved everything that was used on me during my Darphin facial. I'm super excited for you about your Barneys purchases too! Keep me posted– I want to hear all about what you bought!

      Delete
    12. After you told me about your facial, I tried to find a Darphin spa nearby, but to no avail. So I decided to splurge on a couple of products, and have facials at home ;) By the way, where did you go for yours? Maybe when I'm in NYC, I could book an appointment.
      I'm really impressed with their products - I didn't expect them to be this good. Usually by noon, my skin starts feeling uncomfortable and itchy, but since I started using the oil and the moisturizer, my skin feels great all day.

      Delete
    13. By the way, how long does it usually take for the pre-ordered goods to arrive from Barneys? I'm just overly excited and impatient ;)

      Delete
    14. Did you see Kate's response, Cindy? She provided the link to their website with the $10.00 deal. The sample vials that I got were probably from Space NK.

      Delete
    15. Hi Kasia!

      My Darphin facial was at Space NK in Los Angeles. The best thing to do is to contact your local Space NK and have them notify you the next time they have Darphin facials– they book them a while in advance– so they should be able to let you know a while before the event! I agree that their products are quite lovely!

      It's hard to know just how quickly they will send it out because so many orders are placed during this time. Hopefully yours will be processed quickly! I know what you mean, it's hard not to want everything NOW! Keep me posted! I can;t wait to hear what you think about what you ordered! What did you buy?

  10. Ka,
    If you call NY and ask for Cynthia at the Kiehls counter she can assemble your whole list (at all counters) including the in store step ups and if something you want is out, she can do a pre sale for you to have it include towards the $200 event and then ship it to you (on barneys) when it comes in. I live in NYC and swear by her and have had several friends/relatives do this with much success. She can also pretty much get you samples of anything not included in the gift bag that you are curious about. Plus she is alot of fun and loves this stuff as much as we all do.

    1. It makes such a huge difference when SA go out of their way to let you sample things! Plus, being fun and engaging makes the whole experience great! I have heard others praise Cynthia as well!

  11. Hey Helen

    I placed my order last week but I go thru Irene to and she is amazing the best SA EVER. I'll ask about a product and they might not have it then weeks late she remembers and calls to tell me it's there. I mean she's amazing I'm so glad you love her as much as I do. Super generous with samples. I would have never bought colbert md face oil & serum if it wasn't for her. Also my Byredo perfumes I have bought 2 because she sent me samples and I ordered them right away. Not many people would go out of their way like she does. Thank you for all this info so helpful. Melissa

    1. Hey Melissa! Irene is amazing! She is such a lovely person, and I totally adore her! She is definitely on top of everything, and makes sure that her clients are very well taken are of! What did you order this time? Was it the Colbert MD Illumino (I have it and love it, and reviewed it). I can't wait to here about your purchases!

      Delete
    2. Hey Helen,

      I ordered the byredo gypsy water along with 2 new chanel rouge cocos and the surratt mascara. I think next is the Sunday riley good genes and their luna oil. What are you getting? I repurchased the colbert md oil & serum a month ago so I should have waited as I would have gotten the facial pads. Oh well I'm thinking if getting the zelens pads? Their line is amazing I have both foundations and lip gloss In nude amazing

      Delete
    3. Nice purchases, Melissa! Zelens is amazing, and not enough people really know about it! I have made purchases before the event as well and missed out on the Step-Up Gifts as well. I hope tha toyu are loving the Colbert Illumino Oil! I love that stuff! I have actually been so busy at work that I haven't had a moment to figure out what I want! I certainly don't need a thing, but then again this event often has little to do with "need."

  13. Love your blog. Never posted before, but this event is the perfect time for me to pick up some big items I really need. I'm wavering between a few face oils-Colbert MD illumino or the Sisley. What would you purchase if you had to just pick one? Anyways, thank you so much for the information, really great post!!

    1. Thank you, Sarah! You just made my whole day!!!!! Rough week at work, so your kind words are going a very long way! I'm thrilled that you took the time to post a comment, WELCOME!!!! This event is DEFINITELY the perfect time to pick up some big ties that you really need! That is a seriously tough question, and I ended up buying both, but not at the same time. They are so very different from one another that it is pretty difficult to evaluate them side-by-side. It really depends on what you are looking for in an oil. Colbert MD Illumino is a very light and watery oil that sinks into the skin immediately leaving behind a luminous glow. It also contains retinol– so in addition to nourishing the skin it also actively helps turn over dead skin cells. The Sisley Black Rose Precious Face Oil is an ultra nourishing richer oil that also imparts a gorgeous glow, and keeps skin ultra-hydrated. It was intended for drier more mature skin, but I have neither (in fact, I have decidedly combination skin) and it does extraordinary things for my skin! Here are my reviews of both:

      http://www.lolassecretbeautyblog.com/2015/02/sisley-paris-black-rose-precious-face.html

      Let me know what you are really looking for in an oil, and I can help you narrow it down to one, if you would like. You are very very very welcome! :-)

    2. I'm really sorry to hear you're having a rough week at work..it seems that when work isn't going well, everything feels a bit off. Hopefully, you will have some time to relax and reflect this weekend and start anew next week! Thank you for responding with such a nice break down. I also don't have mature skin (but what's mature these days, haha). But I do have VERY dry skin with fine lines. I'm not actively using a retinol product on my face, so I was leaning towards the Colbert. But after reading so many reviews of the Sisley, I feel that may be a better purchase to layer with my other skin care. So, if you had to address fine lines and dry skin, which would you purchase? Also, just as a comparison, is the Sisley similar to the La Prairie cellular swiss dry oil? I had several samples last year and simply did not purchase due to the smell. Results were wonderful.

      Delete
    3. You are so thoughtful, Sarah! Thank you for your very kind words. It was just long and stressful week at work, but I'm fine (and am thrilled to have a few days off).

      Given that you have dry skin and fine lines, I think that you would be absolutely elated by the Sisley oil. It is an unbelievably nourishing oil that keeps skin soft, supple, moisturized and luminous. It definitely helps plump fine lines and makes skin feel like velvet. The scent is a gorgeous rose, but it does fade soon after application. I haven't used the La Prairie Cellular Dry Oil, but I have felt it in store so I haven't done more than just play with it it. I don't remember what it smelled like, but I do remember that I wasn't wowed by the smell. I am curious about it, but it's hard to imagine me loving it more than the Sisley oil! I will have to try to get some samples to really give it a try.

    4. After a few days of reading online and thinking (probably thinking more about this than I should...lol) I ordered the Sjal anti-aging oil. I'm hoping I made the right choice. But after your review and others that I read, this oil checked all my needs! And of course to get the gift I ordered some lipsticks, etc..definitely did NOT need that haha

      Delete
    5. Hi Sarah! the själ oil is utterly AMAZING! If you love it half as much as I do, you will be thrilled! Getting the gift always sweetens the deal! Which lipsticks did you get? You know how obsessed I am with lipsticks!!!!!!

  14. Thanks for all the great info! I see that you wrote Koh Gen Do is having a step up gift but I heard they are pulling this line from Barneys. In fact, I think this was supposed to be done in February. Have you heard anything about this and are they still having a step up gift?

    2. I got the face oil and I know I love that already. I also got the Soothing Renewal Treatment which I plan to gift to my SIL since she has rosacea. I am hoping it will help her immensely. I also ordered either a single mask or the hand cream, depending on which they have in stock. Since Irene was not at the store, she has to check tomorrow. What a nice gal!

    3. Excellent choices! You simply can't go wrong with their amazing Camellia Beauty Oil! What a lovely gift for your SIL! I hope it does the trick for her Rosacea, and that she loves it! You will definitely love using all of these beautiful things!

  16. Hi--I went to the page per your link and the beauty event isn't featured nor does the bag add to my cart with my purchase. Are they not pre-selling anymore?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Georgia, The reason that you aren't finding the gift bag available online yet is because the LOVE YOURSELF Bag Event doesn't begin until March 10th. It won't appear online until then, or a few hours before. I will post the online gifts once they become available, and I will a provide a link right to the gift bag on their website. This post shows the actual bag, and the Step-Up Gifts, and information about the in-store purchases. The stores are currently pre-selling, as they always do prior to the event, but the actual event is from March 10-14. In-store purchases that are being purchased during the pre-sale won't be charged to your card until the event begins on the 10th and will be shipped out after that. Online purchasers will begin making their purchases once the sale goes live online when the event has begun. I don't think that they are doing any sort of online pre-sale. People just tend to make their online purchases as soon as it goes live. Also the line additional line specific gifts with purchase tend to differ online and in-store with both having amazing gifts!

  19. I think the NARS step up gift must not be available online because I spent over $200 and didn't receive anything extra. Also, there's a nice step up gift for Morroccan Oil when you spend $75 you get a free body soufflé.

    1. Hi,

      At this point there doesn't appear to be a NARS Step-Up online, but they do periodically add additional steep-ups online during the event.

      As for Face Oils that I love and that are great for dry skin, in addition to TATCHA Camallia Beauty Oil, I think that the Sisley Black Rose Oil and the Aesop Damascan Rose Oil are phenomenal. I prefer both to SR Oils– which I haven't used in a while. I also think the själ oil is amazing as well. Outside of the context of BNY, I love African Botanics Marula Oil and their Neroli Infused Marula Oil. For hand blended atelier oils made in small batches all of the oils made by Mandy Aftel (Aftelier Perfumes) are utterly extraordinary. :-)
