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.

What You Get

  • Zero Gravity Repairwear Lift (love it!)
  • Rinse-off Foaming Cleanser
  • Compact containing Colour Surge Eye Shadow Duo in Beach Plum (a shimmer gold and shimmery violet) and Soft-Pressed Powder Blush in New Clover (a matte plum)
  • Lash Doubling Mascara in Black
  • Long Last Glosswear SPF in Bamboo Pink (read the full review)
  • Long Last Lipstick in Beach Coral (shimmery pink coral)
  • Mirrored silver lipstick case

From left to right: Bamboo Pink, Beach Coral, shimmery shade from the Beach Plum eye duo, shimmery violet shade from the Beach Plum eye duo, New Clover blush, Lash Doubling mascara in black

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?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    Whoah! Thanks for the GWP heads-up! Woot!

    Don’t worry, Tabs will return to you! It’s total cats-out weather right now, but his stripy little heart belongs to you! 🙂

  2. kit says:

    The gwp is so tempting. There are so many wonderful deals at Nordstrom. I need to move near one!

    Perhaps Tabs is out on a small adventure. I’m sure he’ll return soon.

  3. Mariah says:

    AHAHAHA!! You cornball! I love the Pantene commercial look!!! V. Nice!

    When that set is swatched, it reminds me of the MAC Ungaro collection. Hmmmm.

    That’s an adorable collar! YAY! It’s a safety collar! That means it’ll break if they get caught on something! That’s a good thing! They can’t get strangled. But you do want to pry that bell off. The noise can be hard on their little ears.

  4. Ellery says:

    Love the fan effect, lol! I really like the bag that comes with this set.

    Tabs better come back or Babycake will be upset. I’m sure he will though, he’s just having a little holiday. Strangely, I also had to buy Babycake a collar yesterday, her cute lil’ pink one with crystals on it completely disappeared!

  5. Karen says:

    Hi Ellery,

    Me too! The lining inside is a bright yellow, which is also a nice touch. Seriously, one day you need to do a photo sesh with a fan so you can *work that hair*!

    I didn’t know Babycake was a collar escape artist. 🙂 I saw a similar pink collar with crystals at the pet store, LOL. I briefly had visions of Tabs rocking it, but then decided to go with the conservative blue with the stars and fish bones. I really hope he comes home soon. It’s morning here and I’ve already checked outside a bunch of times and he’s still MIA.

    Anyway, whatcha doing this weekend? This morning after I write I think I’m going to go running, and then play with some MAC Red She Said lipsticks.

  6. Karen says:

    Hi Mariah,

    LOL, thanks! Girl, you gotta hook the fan photo session, up! It’s the best. 🙂

    Good call on the bell. I figure he’ll also need it removed because I’ve noticed that he likes to skulk about and hide. I hope he comes back… *tears*

    Hope you’re having a good weekend. Doing anything fun?

  7. Karen says:

    Hi Kit,

    I agree. You could always do your purchases online. I know that for this GWP it also applies to the website. 🙂

    Thanks for your nice words regarding Tabs. I know he’s not *really* my cat, but I’ve gotten really attached to him. If he doesn’t come back today it’ll be three days. I might have to set up a vigil, LOL.

    How’s your Saturday been so far?

  8. Karen says:

    Hi Glosslizard,

    You’re welcome! Time to do some Clinique stocking up, woo hoo!

    Last night El Hub and I kept checking outside to find him, and it was a total cat jamboree… but sans Tabs. I wonder if he’s being held somewhere captive against his will. Maybe they are feeding him Purina Cat Chow! Did P. Lily decide to come home and grace you with her presence?

  9. Dao says:

    That’s a nice set of GWP from Clinique there. I hope Tabs is coming back soon, maybe he went to see his girlfriend?

  10. Ellery says:

    It’ll look so cute on him! He’ll make his way back home when he gets hungry. 🙂

    I was gonna go thrifting since I’ve never been but I felt blah today so I just stayed in because I wouldn’t enjoy it if I went out. I’m going on Monday though since I wanna find some fur coats. 🙂

    I wish I could go running but I feel too self conscious running in public so I just stick to my cross trainer. Oooh, did you buy them? I’m not gonna buy any from the RSS collection, MAC hasn’t been wowing me lately so I just avoid the collections, plus it means more money for clothes!

    My Saturday inside was well spent though, I finally found furniture, it’s nothing I’d go for usually but I just fell in love with it, plus it’s solid oak so it’ll last a looong time, and the wardrobe was on sale from £960 to £390! Woohoo! (The chair is cream but they don’t have a picture of the cream one so I put the gray one in there, lol!) I’m worried one wardrobe won’t be enough for me though… I have lots of clothes.

    Tyra would be so proud of you. That Clinique bag is cuuuute!

    Friday night I went out with some friends and had some fab Greek food.

    Enjoy your weekend!

    True, I can order the products online. That $8 shipping fee gives me pause but I still have some time to think about it.

    Maybe you can tempt Tabs back with his favorite treat or something like that. He’s gotta get hungry sometime.

    Actually I dropped by the Chanel counter today and ended up coming home with 2 products that were highlighted on your blog recently – the Red Shine gloss and the smoky eye palette. My wallet is crying but they look cute on my dresser top.

    Hopefully Tabs will grace you with his presence soon.
