Beauty Bonus Time Junkie/Stalker


Let’s just get straight to it: I get a makeup/skincare high from Beauty Bonus Time events. Bonus times are the most anticipated highlights of the year for me when it comes to my beauty urges & cravings for heavenly beauty products. So I’m usually out there at beauty department stores doing my stalking thing and scoping out which beauty brands are promoting Bonus Time events.

Love everything about the Beauty Bonus Time concept—basically a Gift with Purchase (GWP) transaction where you get a free gift bag of delightful bonuses with every required purchase at a specified price —ahhh, music to my ears! Bonus gift bags are usually double the worth of their purchased products and may consist of — a skincare set, eye/face makeup, lip products, or even perfume—and all packed in a beautiful little makeup bag.

If you want to be thrifty, then this is the perfect time to pool in with a friend and buy some luscious makeup/skincare products at great prices.  Sometimes, depending if the brand carries a perfume line, like for example Lancôme, I’ll purchase a perfume for my mom and stash it away until her birthday, or Mother’s Day (she loves Hypnôse perfume) and I’ll keep the bonus gift set for myself! Bonus products are also great for regifting too:)

I’ve had my share of makeup hauls from Beauty Bonus Time events, I’ve compiled quite a stash of makeup and skincare goodies from a wide range of brands such as Clinique, Lancôme, Elizabeth Arden, Clarins, Shiseido, Estée Lauder and so much more.

My most recent acquisition was an 8-piece Lancôme bonus gift set. My required purchase was the Lancôme Teint Miracle Foundation in Bisque 6 (W)—which I adore, by the way. So no one had to twist my arm to make this purchase;)


And lucky. lucky me received the following Lancôme bonus beauty gifts:
* Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Makeup Remover
* Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector
* Bienfait Multi-Vital High Potency Daily Moisturizing Cream SPF 30
* Blush Subtil Delicate Oil-Free Powder Blush in Brilliant Berry
* Color Design Sensational Effects Quad Eye Shadow in Pink Pearls (matte), Lavender Girl (metallic), Zip Me Up (metallic) and Pink Zinc (metallic)
* Hypnôse Star Mascara Volume Ultra-Glamorous Regard Cinéma Show Stopping Volume Mascara in 01 Midnight
* Juicy Tubes Ultra Shiny Lip Gloss in Miracle
* L’Absolu Rouge Lipstick in Exotic Orchid


The best feature of the bonus gift set is that you get to sometimes try samples of beauty products you normally wouldn’t plan on buying at all, until you get a trial size run of it and see that it actually works for you!

By no means, is this my first Lancôme bonus gift set. I’ve had the opportunity to try  numerous Lancôme products which I totally love now, all thanks to the Bonus Time events! I’ve gone out and purchased several of their full-priced regular sized makeup and skincare products, including perfume, just based on my positive experience with their bonus gift sets.

My only question now is, which beauty brand is up next for Bonus Time?

Thank you for reading my blog:)
