Free Trina Turk-Designed GWP (a $75 Value) at Clinique

November 3, 2009 Free Clinique Gift with Purchase

Get your Free Trina Turk designed bag filled with beauty essentials, a $75 value, yours with any $25 Clinique purchase at NORDSTROM. While I’m not a big Clinique user I do have a few products I’ve had my eye on. Check out my picks down below!

Clinique ‘Superbalanced’ Powder Makeup SPF 15 ($34.50)
Smart technology keeps dry areas comfortable, oily areas less shiny. No-waste grinder dispenses skin-defending vitamins with each twist. Fresh-shaved mineral powder clings evenly to skin. Lasts for up to eight long hours. Includes antibacterial brush.

I have YSL’s version of this, which is called their Semi-Loose powder, and while I love the ease of grinding my own powder, it’s definitely a little pricier than I’d like. Clinique’s Superbalanced looks like a nice affordable option and the bit about lasting up to eight hours definitely has me wanting to give it a shot!

Clinique ‘Lash Impact’ Set ($20)
High Impact Mascara (0.14 oz.) volumizes, lengthens. High Impact Curling Mascara (0.14 oz.) coaxes lashes to their most upturned look. Lash Power Mascara (0.9 oz.) vows to look pretty for 24 hours. High Definition Lashes (0.14 oz.) delivers extreme length, definition.

Up until a few weeks ago I’d never tried a Clinique mascara, nor did I have much of a desire to, but all that’s changed since I redeemed 100 points at Sephora for Clinique’s High Impact Mascara. Let’s just say I’m pretty impressed and itching to try more!

Clinique Dramatically Different™ Moisturizing Gel ($35 for 6.7 oz)
This dermatologist-developed formula—Step 3 in the famous 3-Step System—duplicates the natural moisture balance of healthy skin. Replenishes exactly what’s needed to smooth and improve every skin.

While Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel has no real bells and whistles and is a very basic moisturizer, when my skin is acting up this is my go-to product. I actually detest the non-gel version of this stuff, but the gel version is pretty wonderful. When I’m breaking out I slather this on for some non-irritating, non-comodogenic moisture and my skin is back to normal in no time!

Since I didn’t really buy anything during Sephora’s F&F event, I may just indulge in a new Clinique product or two to check out thiw GWP ~ I’ve actually really been wanting to check out one of the Trina Turk GWP’s, as I’ve missed all the previous ones.

Photos From The Clinique/Milly Fashion’s Night Out Event!

September 17, 2009

The 59th Street Bloomingdales Clinique counter celebrated the coming together of beauty and fashion and the launch of Fashion Week by collaborating with fashion designer Milly (whose work I absolutely adore ~ she makes the prettiest, girliest dresses).

To celebrate, Clinique & Milly released a chic, one-of-a-kind, makeup bag exclusively at Bloomingdale’s and co-hosted an exclusive cocktail party for fashionistas, Fashion Week goers and VIPs.

Milly designer Michelle Smith stated, “I’m excited to celebrate Milly’s collaboration with Clinique on an evening dedicated to fashion and inspiring consumers to get out and shop. The Milly for Clinique bag and my favorite items inside are the perfect way to keep every woman looking beautiful this fall.”

Everyone had a fabulous time meeting with Michelle, having her sign their makeup bags, receiving “Milly for Clinique” makeovers, listening to great music from the DJ and sipping on flutes of champagne.

I’m sure it must have been such a thrill for all of the attendees to meet with Milly’s designer, Michelle Smith, and to check out her makeup picks. And how cute were her shoes?!
