Best gifts with purchased @ Barney’s Spring Beauty Event

Want to know which department stores offer the best gift with purchase? Check it out below!

The high end stores offer better gifts with purchases. Let’s start with Barney’s New York, Bergdorf Goodman, Neman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenues. Twice a year, these stores will host a beauty event. Basically, you’ll have to spend $$ and you’ll receive deluxe beauty products from participating brands. I love these events because I can try different brands and experience new products.

 Mr Jan All In One recommendations:
I would strongly recommend you have a regular beauty adviser at one of these high end stores. All cosmetics are the same price, but you’d receive much better service at the high end stores. Also, the beauty events usually happens around the same time. If you want to know when, just call the store and ask. I hope you find this helpful!

Sephora Rouge VIB Haul

Today I want to share with you what I order from Sephora during the Rouge VIB event. I have not tried all the products yet, so this is just an overview. More detailed reviews will be on my YouTube channel sometime in late May.

Sephora VIB Rouge is a customers loyalty program. If you spend over $1,000.00 in one year, you will be become a VIB Rouge customer. In addition, the VIB Rouge program comes with many benefits. One of these benefit is a 15% discount on all purchase, during the VIB Rouge event, which occurs twice a year. This is a great deal! Since I work in the industry I know all retailers’s promo calendar, so I usually will map out what I need to purchase from each store. For Sephora, I usually only purchased the exclusive brands.

Surratt Make Up Review Video on YouTube

Hey all, a couple of months ago while I was in San Francsico, CA for the SK-II pop-up store opening, I met Troy Surratt of Surratt Make-Up. Troy is so passionate about his make-up and the industry in general. Surratt Make-Up is sold exclusively at Barney’s of New York and so I stopped by the Barney’s in San Francisco and picked up a few of the items available in the store.

In this episode of Mr. Jan All In One, I review the Surratt make-up items that I was able to grab at Barney’s (they nearly sold out, so I purchased what I could). Enjoy!

Yesterday, I attended Generation Beauty 2014 by Ipsy at LA Live in downtown Los Angeles, California. This event hosted by Michelle Phan’s Ipsy and sponored by various cosmetics, beauty and hair care companies. Generation Beauty has a ton of amazing workshops and meetups by top beauty gurus and established professionals. The idea behind the event is to grow your social network community by connecting at the event with other women and men, who share your beauty interests.

Steve’s Waikiki Shopping Haul

Steve just returned from Honolulu, Hawaii, where he goes often as the National SK-II Skin Care Ambassador. Even though most of his day is spent at events, he usually finds time in the evening to squeeze in some shopping. This trip was no exception. Check out Steve’s latest video featuring just a few of the items he found on Waikiki Beach … it’s a shopping haul exclusive!

EM Cosmetics by Michelle Phan, Mr. Jan All In One Review

Since I started my YouTube journey, I have been inspired and impressed with Michelle Phan’s success, her expertise in the industry, and her amazing presence on YouTube. I wanted to see if her products were as amazing as her ability to sell them on YouTube, so I purchased the following items during her black Friday sale (which was an amazing value).

Michelle Phan EM MakeUp 4

Shade Play (concealer color mixing palette – medium)
The Life Palette (party life) with free travel compact
The Life Palette (night life) with free travel compact

Michelle Phan EM MakeUp 3In addition to the above products that I purchased, they included samples of products that I was allowed to select myself. Sending along samples that I was able to choose myself is very cool. I selected to receive samples of the EM Great Cover UP and the EM Everything CC.

The Life Palette contains twenty four (24) eye shadows, four (4) blushes, and eight (8) lip colors. The colors are very natural and easy to use. Under the color palette is a step-by-step chart that they call “recipes” for various looks. If you are a beginner in the make-up world, I would suggest that you follow these instruction first and then develop your unique look from that point. All of the colors can be removed and organized into a travel compact which was included in the Life Palette purchase. Please look at my YouTube video for New Years Eve Party Make-Up ideas in which I used the EM Life Palette and the Shade Play concealer.

Overall, I love the concept behind the EM Life Palette, and found it very easy to use. If you are purchasing this make-up for the first time, I would suggest that you purchase the Life Palette and then build your collection of EM Cosmetics based on your needs.
