There’s a whole lot of consumer opportunities out there at the mo. First, the Estee Lauder Gift Me gift with purchase. The gift includes a nice handbag and a bunch of great treats.
Then there’s the mad $5 (US) teeshirts at threadless. With the kiwi dollar still that’s an amzing deal. Shipping costs a bit shared across a number of tees or people it’s peanuts. I’ve bought a bunch of tees fromthreadless in the past and they never disappoint. Hurry because the sale ends o the 8th June.
And of course Aussie brands Cue and Veronica Maine and Witchery each have huge sales at the mo. Each have a good number 50% off racks.
And luxury brand l’occitane have a big sale. You can purchase online or instore.
Leave a comment if you know of any more must-see sales.
I can’t find a picture of the gift anywhere online, but it is available from Kirk’s in Wellington from today to 3rd May.
Here’s what you get if you buy two EL products:
- two make-up bags
- mini bottle of Sensuous fragrance
- Sumptuous mascara
- quad eyeshadow in browns and pinks
- Resilience Lift firming creme
- Some sort of serum
If you’re into gifts with purchases, but don’t wanna get suckered into buying a crappy second product just for the sake of the freeby, then maybe we can help. Here’s a few EL products I’ve reviewed on the site that I recommend:
Perfectionist Serum (i think it may come with the gift)
I don’t like their liquid liners though – there are many better liners out there for much cheaper. And I don’t like the Sumptuous mascara that comes with the gift.
You could also take a look at totalbeauty.com and see what others think about the rest of EL’s line.
I’ve road-tested Estee Lauder’s new Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara (yes, that’s what the called it) and here’s what I reckon…
It’s way too clumpy and smudges every where upon application. Luckily I didn’t pay for it – I got a free sample from a magazine clipping. I do feel sorry for the poor chumps that pay for it though. Here it is (right) benchmarked against Clinique High Definition Lashes (left), which is a pretty sturdy mascara.
Strangely, the Estee Lauder has two good reviews on TotalBeauty.com. So maybe it’s just me who has trouble with it…
