Barneys New York LOVE YOURSELF Bag Event March 8-12 | Step-Up Gifts and Gift Bags Revealed!!

Barneys Love Yourself Bag Event March 8-12
(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.
 (Once the sale officially begins, more will be added online)

-The Bag Event will run from March 8-12, 2016.

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

-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, unless otherwise stated. I


-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!

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. Remember that things sell out very quickly because the LOVE YOURSELF BAG EVENT is a very popular (and fantastic) time to shop. In other words, don't wait too long if you plan to shop the event.

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 Irene Brossar at the NYC Madison Avenue location (212) 833-2004 and (212) 833-2005 or email her at
Are you planning on partaking? If so, what are you thinking of getting? 
Here are a few of my top picks:

  1. Thank you so much~ I love to read your blog, and I love the information put out for us. Love it. I just ordered several skin care from 3lab, and I can wait to get my goodie bag.

    1. You are very welcome, Zheng! I am so happy to hear that you love reading my blog! 3Lab is such an amazing line! What items did you purchase? I hope that you love everything that you receive!

    2. Well, I ordered a foaming cleanser, lip treatment, toner, m cream and h serum. I have only tried their M cream, and I am absolutely in love with it. Have you tried their h serum before? I hope my skin will like it.

    3. Hi Zheng! Oh, what a lovely selection of things that you ordered! Their M Cream is ultra-luxurious, and such a pleasure to use! I have a couple samples of the H Serum somewhere in my pile, but I haven't tried it yet. Please keep me posted, I would absolutely LOVE to hear your impressions of it, and everything else that you purchased! It's pretty hard not to love all of their products! I hope that your skin love all of it too!

    1. Hi Jeorge, Are you shopping the sale, or skipping it? :-)

  3. Do you think there will actually be a step-up for May Lindstrom or Organic Pharmacy? If so then I might actually have to change my bag...or make an online order or something. I wanna hoard minis!

    1. Hi A, I sure hope so!!!!!!! I am still waiting to hear back, and of course I am personally interested in those tow as well. Nobody knows as of yet. I will let you know the second that I learn. Sometimes the vendors don't tell BNY until very close to the day of the event. For many years I made The Organic Pharmacy purchases during the event, and they didn't have step-up gifts, but hopefully they will. I have no idea whether May Windstorm will– as you probably remember, her line was brand new to Barneys last year, and she didn't partake in the step-up gifts last time. That often seems to be the case when as line is brand new to BNY. Last year, for instance, Bellatorra was brand new to BNY, and they are offering a really fantastic Step-Up. Let's both keep our fingers crossed that they both decide to partake in Step-Ups! I agree with you, hoarding minis is AWESOME! I was told that there are going to be some SERIOUSLY amazing online exclusives that will be appearing too! <3

    2. Oh, oh, oh!!!! How do people order weeks in advance without knowing what's upcoming? I don't understand it. I want to know all the information and make an informed decision. Now I want to order something online, too! UGH!

    3. Amazing online exclusives??? OMG I can't wait! It's only 4 days away. Tuesday can't come soon enough.

    4. @cpl100 It is always this way. Some of the vendors let them know very early on that they are planning on participating, and let them know what they will be offering as a step-up. There are other vendors who let them know closer to the time of the event. There are lots of reasons why this happens. The vendors have to decide what they have, what they can afford to giveaway for this big event. Some smaller companies are too small to be able to partake because the demand may exceed their ability to make enough product to satisfy this event. Also, one has to appreciate that it costs a great deal of money to give away full size, or deluxe size samples. Brand new lines often can't do this until they have been around longer.

      What I learned a while ago was to shop for what I really want/need, and to be less swayed by step-up gifts because so many of the lines that I have bought over the years often didn't participate in Step-Up gifts. I always felt that it was nice to get the gift bag. Step-Ups are definitely fantastic to get, when the lines that you shop are participating! The online step-ups are supposed to be amazing this year! The link that I provided above will show you the various step-ups, and they will keep adding them until the event actually begins, and even then more can appear. Of course, the Gift Bag itself will not appear on their website until the day of the event EST.

    5. @A, yes, there are a lot of amazing things that will be available online, and I was told they won't all be the same as what is in-store, and that some things will be exclusive to their website! I am dying to see all of those things!

    6. Oh no! Now I wanna get May lindstrom and Organic Pharmacy. May Lindstrom I can definitely find $200 to spend but Organic Pharmacy is $400! Having never tried the brand I don't think I could do that just for the discovery set. I think I need to buy the discovery set first, try it, and then see if they have a good step up for fall!

    7. I know!!!! I have to admit that I am very pleasantly surprised! I didn't actually think that ML would participate this early in her tenure at BNY, and with a full size product, no less. I'm thrilled that The Organic Pharmacy did as well, particularly since they don't often. I have purchased thousands of dollars in their products without ever having the perk of a step-up gift! I have definitely spent $400.00 on TOP in a single sitting, but the step-up is a little steep, I agree! That's a good plan. I still need to review that kit, and will definitely need to get that up for you before the next event. It will also be VERY interesting to see if they offer anything for the Online step-ups that could just appear on their website. I included the link above, and it's definitely worth stalking it to see the new goodies that they add. I know that I will be!

  4. Chanel and Dior are always so hush about their gifts! It makes me want them more!!!

  5. Thank you again, Helen, for all the additional info. I wish I could see what you're going to be buying but the photos of your potential purchases won't load for some strange reason. I hopefully may get a step up from Rituals, but the other minimums are too high for me. I'm going to go to the website and map it all out. I used to have a contact at the Boston store in the Fragrance department, but I don't think I'm buying fragrance this time and I'm not sure if he's still there. The contents of the bag looks good this time, but I'm thinking not quite as great as September but I could be wrong. Still excited.

    1. Absolutely my pleasure, Allison! Can you refresh your screen and let me know if it is loading for you now? The contents of the bag do look good, but I think the you might be right about September. I love shopping this event a great deal, but there is no reason to overspend on things that you really don't badly want or need in order to reach the Step-Up Gift threshold!

  6. Oh my gosh - what a selection of goodies... Tatch, Malin goetz and so much greatness in this pile of gifts. Love it


  8. I love that Tatcha is included!

    1. Catcha always participates in this bag event, and their gifts are always so fantastic! I love that line!

  9. Unfortunately I can't see your potential items. My computer is viewing them as ads and blocking them. Kind of strange.....

    1. That is very strange! That's a bummer! Try to load it in another browser like Chome or Firefox, if you are using Safari.

    2. I just saw your email, and will respond soon, but you can contact Ana directly and tell her you are a LSBB reader for extra goodies.

    3. I just heard back! Spend $200.00 in Radical products and receive a full size Hydrating Cleanser! Pretty good gift, if you ask me!

  10. Hi there, do you know that if an international order will include the bag? Thankyou :)

    1. Hi Pale Gold, I just sent them an email asking, and am awaiting their response. I will let you know as soon as I hear back. :-)

    2. Hi again, Pale Gold!

      Yes, they will include the bag for international orders. I am told that the shipping costs are expensive, and you may also have to pay taxes and customs fees (depending on the country).

    3. Many thanks for your help Lola. :)

    4. Absolutely my pleasure, Pale Gold!

  11. Those are some really great bonus deals and that Tatcha set... incredible!

    1. They always do an amazing job, and the TATCHA set is incredible.

  12. Holy wow, that's a great gift bag! I love Tatcha and that set is stunning.

  13. Will there be other online exclusive step-ups that are not listed above when the event goes live?

    1. Hi Theresa, That is what I have been told. I would keep checking the online link above. I noticed that there were a few more items added to it. In the past, I have noticed that they keep adding items to their website, and on the day of the event the gift bag will appear online, and will automatically appear in your basket once you reach the $200.00 minimum purchase.

    2. oooh the mystery haha! hopefully there are some good ones - thanks!

    3. I know, I feel the same way! Trust me when I tell you that I stalk that link above many times a day to see what they have added. From the standpoint of their website, the LOVE YOURSELF Bag Event really doesn't start until the first day of the event, but the online specials are proving to be quite good! I imagine that there will be some rally good ones, and things online and in-store can differ. Not only interns of the actual step-ups, but they offer things that many of the stores don't. For instance, smaller locations that don't carry all of the lines as the larger locations, won't have their corresponding step-up gifts available, but the can often be found online. I am giddy with anticipation to see what pops up online! I will say, however, that if you plan to shop online, shop earlier rather than later since the step-ups aren't in unlimited quantities. Is there any line in particular that you were looking for? If so, I can inquire for you! :-)

  14. I haven't missed this event in ages. Really love it but there are fewer goodies in this bag compared to previous years. I participated in the Space Nk bag event a few weeks ago and there were sooo many goodies (maybe even double the barney's) in their bag! Wonder why Barney's is less this year...

    1. Hi Suzie,

      It does seem as though are fewer goodies than some of their other bags. The Space NK bag a few weeks ago definitely was stuffed full comparatively. I have no idea why there are fewer products, but it may be that no other vendors offered samples for the bag. Are you still planning on shopping the event? If so, what are you thinking of buying?

    2. With all that said, I am going to participate! :) I'm debating between The Organic Pharmacy products and May Lindstrom's. I'm familiar with the Organic Pharmacy Honey Mask which is great for dry skin. I am not so familiar with May Lindstrom...

    3. I hear you! I can only tell you that I continue to be madly in love with The Organic Pharmacy products, and can't wait to try May Lindstrom! I have heard such great things about her products, but still haven't tried them! Keep me posted, I'd love to hear what you end up getting! :-)

    4. I ordered TOF Discovery set to try and asked for a sample of the mask you reviewed. Hoping it works well with my skin.

    5. Their Discovery Set is amazing!!! That mask is one of my very favorite masks of all time! I hope that it works well for your skin!

    6. @cpl100, there is one TATCHA Plum Blossom Lipstick left at the Madison Avenue location, if you still want it call Irene!

  15. Ah! Why are half of the step up gifts that you listed as being available online not available?????

    1. I was wondering the same thing, Erin. My guess is that they will appear online. I have observed during each of the online sales, that they keep adding things. I suspect that many more things will appear soon– especially since they only just posted the LOVE YOURSELF event on their website a couple of hours ago.

    2. crossing my fingers!!!!! Thank you!!

    3. My pleasure, Erin! I will certainly let you know if I learn anything! :-)

  16. Helen, I sent you a time-sensitive email.

    1. Hi Cindy, I emailed you back hours ago. Let me know if you didn't receive my email.

    2. Sorry for the late response. I did get your email and I did get my order placed with Ana. I had to have my 87 year old Dad place the call and read my cc info to her!

    3. Hi Cindy, I am glad that you received it! That was super nice of your dad to place the order for you! Are you feeling any better? I hope that you are! :-)

    4. All he had to do was ask for get her extension, ask for her and read the credit card number. At first she was busy with someone else which threw off the scenario I had told him and he got flustered. But it all worked out. It's hard having no voice! It is back a little bit now but I have to try not to talk so it will completely heal. On the bright side, I got shipping notifications for all three of my purchases. (Went a little crazy this time!) What did you get?

    5. That's still so sweet that he was willing to do something that was so likely out of his wheelhouse!

      Isn't having no voice just awful! Laryngitis is terrible– I hope that you get much better soon. I's so happy that your three packages are en route to you, and hope that you enjoy everything that you purchased. I kept going back and forth about what to get, and finally decided that I was already testing way too many things to add more to my pile in order to get the gift bag. I will wait to see if I have used up enough staples by the next event to see if I will partake then. I have a beauty editor's closet the likes of which belongs at somewhere like Vogue right now!

    6. One and a half of my orders arrived today. (Copley didn't have everything in my order so part is being sent by NYC.) Must report that I got the same shade lip gloss, scents of perfume (where there were variations) and my Rene Furterer samples were both shampoo. Hoping for the conditioner in the last bag. Annnnndddd, instead of the Radical cleanser I received the neck serum as my bonus. VERY pleased about that! And I got a lot of requested samples as well. Happy girl!

    7. Oh, and I forgot to mention, the next time I'm in LA I would be happy to come over and relieve you of some items from your 'closet' so you can feel free to shop......

    8. How exciting that you have already received some of your packages! YAY for you! Yes, you would be shocked by the size of my stash awaiting review! That's to say nothing of all of the things that I have already reviewed!
