Estee Lauder Lilly Pulitzer Promotion 2013: Bloomingdale’s Gift with Purchase

My post on the Estée Lauder Lilly Pulitzer Spring/Summer 2013 Promotion has driven the most traffic to my site of anything I’ve written. The promotion that consists of makeup bags in different shapes and Lilly Pulitzer historic fabric patterns with different Estée Lauder skincare and makeup products has clearly been a success for both brands. The lure of the colorful and fun Lilly Pulitzer bags encouraged me to try Estée Lauder products again after a hiatus of many years. And I’m so glad I did.

 

Lilly Pulitzer died on Sunday, April 7, and I am embarrassed to say that I thought she had already passed away. In spite of being a huge fan of her tropical patterns and brightly colored fashions, I knew remarkably little about this style pioneer. Her personal story is compelling. A bad girl, college drop-out, bored socialite housewife was desperate for something to do. Her road to creating contemporary fashions that reflected the change taking place in the 1960s began at a juice bar, selling juice from her husband’s orange groves, that she started with a friend in Palm Beach. Here’s a link to her engaging obituary in The New York Times: http://nyti.ms/ZgJI21.

OK, back to the makeup. During the March promotion at Macy’s, I purchased an Estée Lauder lipgloss and masacara, and I received the goodie-filled makeup bag in the Snapdragon pattern from 2003. I got to try samples of the mascara, lipstick, night repair serum, as well as Resilience Eye Creme and Resilience Moisturizer with SPF 15, and now I’m a fan of them all.

I recently ordered the full size Resilience Eye Creme, $52, from Bloomingdales.com,

and I just received it along with the makeup bag in the Shadow Floral print. This large makeup bag is just what I need for my growing makeup collection! And I love the summery turquoise and green print. The Bloomingdale’s promotion that started on April 2 requires a purchase of $45+ and gives you a choice of several difference skincare and makeup products:

Choice of Repair sample:

  • Perfectionist [CP+R] Wrinkle Firming/Lifting Serum
  • Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator
  • Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex

I went with the Perfectionist Wrinkle Firming/Lifting Serum since I chose the Advanced Night Repair last month.

Choice of Moisturizer sample:

  • NEW Advanced Time Zone Age Reversing Line/Wrinkle Creme SPF 15
  • DayWear Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant Creme SPF 15
  • Resilience Lift Firming/Sculpting Face and Neck Creme SPF 15

I chose the Resilience Moisturizer because I just loved the sample I got in March.

Choice of Subtle or Bold Makeup Collection:

The Subtle Makeup Collection: I picked this one :)

  • Compact in coordinating Lilly Pulitzer print featuring Pure Color EyeShadows and a Pure Color Blush
  • Pure Color Lipstick Crystal Baby Creme 01
  • Pure Color Intense Kajal EyeLiner
  • Double-ended Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara and Double Wear Stay-in-Place Flawless Wear Concealer

The Bold Makeup Collection:

  • Compact in coordinating Lilly Pulitzer print featuring Pure Color EyeShadows and a Pure Color Blush
  • Pure Color Lipstick in Rubellite
  • Pure Color Intense Kajal EyeLiner
  • Double-ended Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara and Double Wear Stay-in-Place Flawless Wear Concealer

The bag also comes with Estée Lauder’s simple step-by-step guide on how to create a smokey eye.

I think the Bloomingdale’s makeup bag and collection of skincare and makeup samples is the best of the offers. If you’re considering making an Estée Lauder purchase, now’s the time!

Have any of you gotten any of the gifts yet? Do share.

  1. IMO, the one from EL website in March was the best but it was gone really quick by the time most cna catch up on the news.
