With Mother's Day right around the corner a trip to the cosmetic counter of your favorite department store might not be such a bad idea. After all, mom could use some new spring colors to brighten up her makeup bag or a lighter skin care regimen to go with the season. And let's be honest, you can use another excuse to explore, test and splurge on everything new and pretty that this overwhelming section has to offer.
Well, spend on your mom (she deserves it!), but you'll be able to escape the madness of all of the tempting packaging that surrounds you without spending a dime on yourself thanks to this year's fabulous Gifts with Purchases (GWP) that many companies are offering. They're so good you'll still leave with something new feeling fulfilled and not guilty.
