The Macy’s Spring VIP Sale has begun! Macy’s is one of my favorite places to shop, especially in the store. Here in Louisville, Kentucky we we don’t have a lot of large department stores, but our Macy’s is fantastic. I love shopping the Macy’s sale every year and I went in store yesterday afternoon, in the lovely weather, to pick up some things that have been on my wishlist for a while.
I like to wait for sales on permanent line beauty products as much as I can. I went in store also because I had a gift card to use and some beauty products that are excluded online are included if you go into the store. So if there are some products you want by any specific brand and they are excluded online, just go into your local Macy’s.
I also browsed around the handbag section because I need to get a smaller every day handbag so that it’s not so heavy on my back and shoulder, and there were some really good deals. Even 40% off on a lot of things in the store. I’m not really sure what type of handbag I want so I didn’t purchase anything yet but there were a lot of cute ones. The bags I tend to love and gravitate towards are not any smaller than the current one I have, Ha Ha.
VIP Sale! Extra 30% off + 15% off Beauty with code: VIP at checkout. The sale runs from 3/26/21 through 4/4/21.
What I Purchased
It was a beautiful afternoon out and there were more people in the store than I expected to see, and everyone seemed to be in a positive and happy mood. The sales associate that helped me was extremely kind and had great recommendations of colors for me. It’s so fun win you get a really good essay that will show you stuff that you love that you didn’t even have on your radar. There were a couple of shades that she recommended for me that I really liked that were out of stock in the store so I may pick them up at another time, such as Dior blush in Actrice and Dior Nude Bronze Powder in 002 Soft Sunlight.
Dior Eyeshadow Quints in Plum Tulle and Tutu have been on my list so I picked up those (I’m still really drawn to the Denim Quint but I didn’t grab it yet because I wasn’t sure how much I would actually wear blues but that teal blue in there is gorgeous and calling my name). I definitely recommend these palettes. The quality is amazing. I reviewed the Dior Quints in Soft Cashmere, New Look, and Nude Dress in a previous post here.
I picked up two Dior blushes in Hologram and Rose Montaigne. These are my first blushes by Dior I will definitely review and swatch these in an upcoming blog post.
Dior Addict Stellar Halo Shine lipstick in shade 667 Pink Star. These are a hydrating lip stick formula so I figured I would give this a try. This is actually a shade she recommended for me and I loved the swatch of it.
And finally I picked up two new shades in the Chanel Le Rouge Duo Ultra Tenue lipsticks in Soft Rose and Strawberry Red. (Chanel is excluded online)
Below are a few more recommendations. My Macy’s store does not have Tom Ford or Jo Malone in the store, but you can still get the discount online. I love to wait for sales for the Tom Ford Eyeshadow Quads and Fragrances, because they’re so pricey, and the permanent shades usually stick around for a long time so they can be added to your collection over time.
Here are a few of my favorite Tom Ford Eye Quads
- Body Heat
- Double Indemnity
- Virgin Orchid
- Pretty Baby
- Nude Dip
Some of my favorite Tom Ford Fragrances:
Another item I love to purchase on sale is perfume. Perfume can be quite expensive and permanent range scents don’t need to be purchased at full price. Here are a selection of my favorite Jo Malone Perfumes for spring time.
- Jasmine Sambac and Marigold
- Tuberose Angelica
- Honeysuckle and Davana
- Nectarine Blossom and Honey
- Wood Sage and Sea Salt
- Peony and Blush Suede
- Orange Blossom
I also really like to get my MAC Cosmetics staple products on sale such as foundation, blot powders, eyeliner, and go to lipsticks. I am decently stocked up on those things this time but usually I pick up things from MAC during the sale every year.
Some other brands that I love to purchase on sale at Macy’s are Nars, Estée Lauder, Clarins (I used to use their skincare exclusively several years ago), Giorgio Armani, Laura Mercier, Anastasia Beverly Hills, and Lancôme.
The Macy’s VIP sale runs from 3/26/21 through 4/4/21. Don’t forget to use code VIP at checkout online.
