Buy it now: British Beauty Blogger X Clinique for Latest In Beauty*

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Jane Cunningham at BritishBeautyBlogger is on fire at the moment! Every beauty box project she does seems to turn to gold and today sees the latest – a special collaboration with Clinique for Latest In Beauty.

You can get the full lowdown at British Beauty Blogger, but I’ve been sent a preview box, which only arrived yesterday while I was at Vogue Festival, so I’ve not had time to play. But the box is a real package of gifty heaven, beautifully presented, with pristine folded tissue and everything meticulously arranged inside on a bed of tissue stripes (I’m sure there must be a fancier term for that stuff). In Jane’s email to me, she said, “they are really high production – white glove handled at pick ‘n’ pack, so they really look pristine and those boxes with silver embossing cost a fortune.”

In the box are five of Jane’s favourite Clinique products in generous travel sizes, plus a full sized mascara and Chubby Stick (these are lovely for a not-too-intense finish). I’m looking forward to trying out the make-up remover because I’ve still not found The One in that category. And I love Clinique mascaras so the High Impact Mascara is going on my lashes first thing this morning.

The box costs £18.95 (including postage) for contents worth over £55 and there are some bonus vouchers inside that Jane can tell you all about. You also get a printed booklet in which Jane explains all her choices. No expenses spared here at all. So I would say head over to BBB quick sharp because these boxes are limited and you know what that means*…

*UPDATE: Uh-oh, I said, be quick! The box has already sold out in under ten hours. Well done Jane…!

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Here’s the latest ‘Ask Alison’ post from retail expert and DRG contributor, ALISON BISHOP, looking at the emergence of interactive digital stores coming from the premium beauty sector

It’s official; Covent Garden has become London’s Beauty Quarter when it comes to stores. Luxury brands Chanel, Dior and Burberry all opened mini beauty flagships here in the last couple of years while Marc Jacobs followed recently with its Tweet Shop pop-up. Now prestige beauty brands Clinique and Bobbi Brown (above) are experimenting with new, highly personal store concepts. Continue reading

Eye candy: Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint For Eyes

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

British Beauty Blogger is reporting on the Spring colours for Clinique’s Chubby Stick Shadow Tint For Eyes. The colours and formulations certainly look appealing (not enough people do cream shadows) but I’m most entranced by the campaign photos. How pretty! If they’re actually packaged like this, I think they’ll sell a ton more…

Beauty snippets: Nars nails, Clinique, YSL, Carol Joy, Faberge, hotel beauty

I really need to hurry up and get my hands on the Thakoon for Nars nail collection. Inspired by Indian festivals (when is Tim Walker going to do a Holi-themed shoot?), there are six of these searing bright colours to try. (Hmmm, in the UK the red is mysteriously missing…) [EDIT: OK Hafsa just pointed out in the comments that the red is exclusive to the Nars site. Clever!] Continue reading

Best beauty buys: A round-up of beauty products I’ve been trying out lately…

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


I have to say, Glossybox is coming up with the goods month after month. As I wrote in a post for Glamour a while ago, the main pull for me is the practicality of all these miniature products. My March Glossybox was a Harrods special containing goodies from Shu Uemura, SKII, Molton Brown, Clarins, a Valentino fragrance sample and a miniature Lancome Hypnose Drama mascara. I admit I’m not fussy about mascaras but I do love this mini Lancome one with its wavy brush. On a separate note, I’ve also just started using Lancome Bi-facil eye makeup remover. Continue reading
