Clinique’s First GWP Designer Collaboration
This is Clinique’s first foray into a designer collaboration GWP. Trina Turk, known for her sophisticated a designer clothing prints, hand picked all the items in the eight-piece set, and her clothes inspires the included silver and white tiger print cosmetics bag.
Love the Bag!
When it comes to GWP sets, there are usually at least a couple items I end up giving away (girrrrrl, like those ubiquitous GWP tubes of Clinique Raspberry Glace lipstick!), but not here, not this time. You’ll want to keep the goodies that come with this set.
I’m a raging accessories freak, and this bag looks like a big step up from the thin, nondescript bags normally packaged with GWPs. But bag or no bag, I think it’s the makeup that makes this set something to look forward to.

A Look for All Seasons
The gold, plum and coral shades included with the set have a summer and beach-inspired feel to them. Yep, they’re a little out of step with most dark fall and winter shades, but I think that’s part of their charm. They’re pretty and wearable and spark all kinds of new ideas.
Fans: Your Best Friend
LOL! I realize that the hair blown effect in these pics crosses the line into cheese-tacular blogger photography territory, but I’m sorry… I couldn’t help myself!
I’m convinced that the windblown fan effect compensates for at least a few hours of sleep and has anti-aging properties because I laughed so hard taking these pics that I feel 10 years younger. If I could, I’d tote a fan around with me 24-7. I totally would! You hear that, Mariah Carey? You ain’t the only one with a fan now, girl!
Tell Me Have You Seen Him??
After lunch at a diner across the street I stopped by a pet store and finally bought Tabs a collar… Unfortunately, he’s been MIA for two whole days. No sign of him since Wednesday. He must be out doing Tabby things, but I hope he comes back. Doesn’t he know how much I worry?
I hope he hasn’t left me for another person. If he’s shacking up with other humans, it’ll break my heart into a bazillion pieces. Sigh…
Well, at least it’s Friday and not Monday. Got any plans for the evening?
