I've been able to catch some nice little Gift With Purchases lately, a few of which I thought I'd share with you!
Laura Mercier GWP from Nordstrom online.
This is actually 2 GWP's, each included at different price levels. The first level included the satin cosmetic case with eyeshadow duo, eye pencil, mascara and tinted moisturizer. The second level include the exfoliator and tinted moisturizer compact.
Eyeshadow duo and eye pencil.
I think Nordstrom gave away this sample of the Tinted Moisturizer Creme Compact a bit ago, but I missed it and was happy to see it in the GWP! It's so cute and is definitely enough product to get a good idea of whether or not I'd purchase. Though I haven't swatched it, just looking at the pan it looks a bit too dark so I'm not sure if I'll be able to use it. Nevertheless, I love the idea and hope to see more foundations in sample sizes this big (and nice!).
The Nordstrom GWP page does change, so be sure to check it before making a purchase! Also, select Nordstrom stores are testing out a Beauty Rewards program. Check HERE for store listings and FAQ's. Online purchases do qualify for the rewards program, so don't let an SA tell you differently. But you do have to make sure to link your account - you do that by clicking the link in the email they send you after you sign up for the program. After that you must be logged into your account when making the beauty purchase. These details are on the FAQ page as well. Oh, and your in store purchases qualify only if you are in a participating store, and you must tell an SA that you are in the program. I only recently signed up, so I don't know what the rewards are like...does anyone out there know???

This is the Sephora VIB bag that they started giving out this past weekend. I'm not sue if they are still available - it came with a $35 purchase, and said available while supplies last. I received something like this last year (here), and thought it was a nice step up from their usual sample selection. They also had the It Kits (here) earlier this year which I thought were great! And now this one! 2 of the items are substitutions, but I'm happier with the subs vs. the what was in the original promo picture. Plus the little cosmetic case is quite roomy and is more substantial than previous bags.
I'm really glad to see Sephora stepping it up this year! Especially in the past several months I feel like their perks and promo codes have been so much better - I've even placed orders simply to use the codes and get the perks! I feel like someone has finally taken note of all the complaints ha ha!!! It will be interesting to see what kind of goodies the Rouge level brings - anyone out there have insight into Rouge yet besides the welcome Bite Beauty mini lipstick? I haven't qualified yet, so I don't know...
Full-sized GWP's from Beautyhabit.com: Rouge Bunny Rouge Gleaming Lip Gloss, Heir perfume (from the makers of Child), Circ Cell Geothermal Clay Cleanser
I love Beautyhabit because they carry so many brands that are either hard to find or not well-known...I don't know about you, but I love finding brands that aren't in every store!! I wanted to mention this site because they always have GWP's going on (check the page here), many of which are full-size. The gloss and cleanser pictured above are still available. They always include some sort of sample bag w/ a personalized note, and often run other promo codes and shipping specials.
Also on the GWP note...here are some other sites that have had some really great offers!!
Skincarerx.com is one of my favorite sites as well, partially because I can use the MakeupAlley code (MUACOUPON20) for 20% off most brands. Plus they often run really good GWP deals as well...I recently received a 2oz bottle (that's 1/2 the size of the regular bottle) of a Vivant cleanser I love. And they always include samples! Even if you don't use the MakeupAlley code, this site runs sales a lot...recently the sales have been well and above the 20% - there was actually a 50% off sale in the form of a rebate!!
I also love Beauty.com...I've gotten some fantastic full-sized GWP items from them as well (Somme Institute Transport Pads and Kevyn Aucoin The Elegant Lip Gloss). They always seem to be running some sort of luxury sample size GWP, in addition to specials not always advertised unless you are looking at a specific brand (drugstore.com does that, too). Right now they are running 20% off all Juice Beauty products.
There are other online sites I like to shop - I'll write up a post about them later!
Do you have any favorite GWP sites or stores? Please share!
