It’s In The Bag: Trina Turk Collabo With Clinique

trina+turk Its In The Bag: Trina Turk Collabo With Clinique
I have to admit that I’m not easily wooed by a gift with purchase. Maybe it’s because most of them are essentially throwaway products, in a multitude of shiteous shades. Or perhaps it’s because I’m an ungrateful heifer who, by virtue of this blog, is spoiled by too much beauty swag.

So when I tell you to mark your calendar for a gift with purchase, you know it’s time to sit up and pay attention.

Clinique has partnered with fashion designer Trina Turk and Nordstrom for the brand’s first-ever designer makeup bag. From November 5-22 (or while supplies last), you can get your paws on Turk’s adorable animal print cosmetic case, filled with Clinique goodies hand-picked by the designer.

“The silver and white mini-tigress print with a bright yellow lining works beautifully with Clinique’s packaging and reflects our own silver and white brand identity,” says Turk.

The gift with purchase includes:

* Zero Gravity Repairwear Lift
* Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser
* Colour Compact with Colour Surge Eye Shadow Duo in Beach Plum/Soft-Pressed Powder Blusher in New Clover
* Long Last Glosswear SPF 15 in Bamboo Pink
* Lash Doubling Mascara in Black
* Long Last Lipstick in Twilight Nude
* Lipstick case with Mirror

There are no throwaways here. In fact, I would bet cash money that many of these products become your beauty must-haves. And, speaking of money, the Trina Turk gift with purchase is free with your Clinique purchase of $25 or more.

The partnership between Clinique and Trina Turk will last for three seasons, so keep your eyes peeled in the months ahead.

Felix Rey Giveaway Winner Writes Back

felixreybag Felix Rey Giveaway Winner Writes Back
Amber, winner of the Felix Rey Giveaway, emailed me to say thanks for her prize. Here’s what she had to say:

So, I’ve been using my totally gorgeous cosmetics bag from Felix Rey this past week and it is absolutely fabulous. I cannot get over how perfect it is and how pretty the floral print is! It’s bigger than a typical cosmetics bag which is PERFECT for me, because all of my beauty tools actually fit. Thank you so much for the amazing contest, and you tell Felix Rey or post on your blog that I am absolutely thrilled with my prize!!! The clear plastic-y outside material is perfect so I don’t worry about staining the bag with makeup or getting it wet. Basically, it’s just what I needed!

Felix Rey is available at shopbop.com, neimanmarus.com, saksfifthavenue.com, and bergdorfgoodman.com.

Here Comes The Bridal Kit – New From Bobbi Brown

bridallook bobbibrown Here Comes The Bridal Kit   New From Bobbi Brown
Every year an average of 2.4 million weddings are performed in the United States. And June is the most popular month for marriages – accounting for 10.8% of weddings.

March may seem somewhat early to start thinking about wedding season. But, trust me – many June brides are already at their wits’ end, trying to decide on a makeup look that will be immortalized in their wedding photos and videos.

Last year at this time, I was preparing for my own nuptials – so I remember what an exciting, yet physically/mentally/emotionally taxing time it can be; I clearly recall agonizing over the makeup I would wear on my wedding day.

bridalkit Here Comes The Bridal Kit   New From Bobbi Brown
This Spring, Bobbi Brown, the bridal beauty authority, has done the hard work and assembled her wedding day must-haves in a new Bridal Kit. Exclusively designed with brides and their bridal parties in mind, the Bridal Kit contains special occasion essentials that flatter all complexions. The sleek white case includes: Ivory Eye Shadow, Black Ink Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner, Black No Smudge Mascara, Pink Sugar Shimmer Lip Gloss and a Short Handle Ultra Fine Eye Liner Brush.

daneen Here Comes The Bridal Kit   New From Bobbi BrownWith the exception of the eye shadow, I own all of these products – and would highly recommend them to future brides. I’m speaking from experience, as I used a few Bobbi Brown products on my wedding day. Plus, if you were to purchase these products separately, it would cost you more than $100 (not including the cosmetic case) – but the Bridal Kit only costs $75.

Felix Rey Giveaway!

fr Felix Rey Giveaway!
I don’t really fancy myself a trendsetter. But for New York Fashion Week, I pulled out all the stops. Nordstrom LBD. BCBG patent pumps. Oversized sunglasses. Designer handbags galore.

felixrey+009 Felix Rey Giveaway!Unfortunately, one of my most stylish accessories never saw the light of day because it stayed hidden in my purse. So it makes its debut tonight. Behold, my Felix Rey cosmetic case.

Check out the intricate lace motif and the logo zipper pull…super chic!

Felix Rey was born in 2001, when friends Lily Rafii and Sulaika Zarrouk decided to design accessories for the smart and stylish girl-about-town. They soon realized they were on to something when their bags started selling out at Bergdorf’s. Then fictional fashionista Carrie Bradshaw carried one of their bags on “Sex And The City” – and the rest, as they say, is history.

Today, Felix Rey continues to create haute handbags – as well as belts, wallets, umbrellas, and other small accessories that round out the line. They describe their customer as “the modern girl with a whimsical flair for style,” and their celebrity fans include Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Lopez, Lucy Liu, Jessica Simpson, Anne Hathaway, and Paris Hilton – just to name a few.

I’m a huge fan too…which is why I am so thrilled to announce that Spoiled Pretty is giving away three of their cosmetic bags! Yay!! Thank you, Felix Rey!!!

To enter the giveaway, visit the Felix Rey website and find out who the company is named after. Then send an email to spoiledprettycontests@gmail.com – be sure to include the answer and your full name. The subject line should read “Felix Rey Giveaway.”

The contest ends at 9 pm EST on Sunday, February 17th. Winners will be chosen at random from among the entrants. On Monday, February 18th, I’ll announce the winners’ names. Please, only one comment per person; duplicate comments will not increase your chances of winning. Contest is open to U.S. & Canadian residents. Good luck!
