Just when you thought your makeup brands couldn't get any better--they do. Aside from producing items that immediately become part of your holy-grail list, having cute packaging, and exciting collaborations, they give you one more reason to fall in love with them even more. Two words: Membership Perks.
Here are 4 more reasons why you’ll fall deeper in love with your favourite makeup brands and stores!
Wanna make your wallet a bit happier every time you buy makeup? Get a membership card and score discounts! The best time to utilise those member discounts is on your birthday month. Missha, for one, gives you 25% discount while Laneige gives 20% on your first purchase during birthday month. Etude House goes via points system that when accumulated, you can use to offset on your purchases. Sephora, on the other hand, entitles you to a 10% discount once you have purchased $250 in a year, which won’t be that difficult since there are so many things you can buy there.
You may be an expert when it comes to makeup or skin care, but when Etude House gives a free personal beauty class with two of your friends on your birthday month, give it a go. Make it your intimate birthday makeup party! YSL also offers the same makeover but make sure to schedule an appointment early on.
Upon signing up for membership, some beauty brands give welcome packs that include samples of their best selling items. Or, if you go to Sephora and TheFaceShop on your birthday month, members can enjoy gifts without needing to purchase any item. Other brands like Guerlain and Bobbi Brown have point systems where, once you reach the specified points, you can get a full-sized sample. You can also get freebies when you spend a certain amount.
While industry insiders usually get a VIP pass to events, those of us who belong to the other side of the spectrum can just hope for those exclusive invites to be sent to our emails c/o our membership. However, at Sephora Singapore, if you are a black card member, it entitles you exclusive invites to product launches. Just make sure to RSVP as soon as you receive the email blast!
