Fashion designer Trina Turk is known first and foremost in my mind for her kaleidoscopic colors and prints. Hues like pinkish buff, heliotrope, Wedgewood blue, and desert khaki are thrown together with Palm Beach aplomb.
This November Turk lends her sensibility to Clinique to create the brand’s first ever celebrity-designed Gift With Purchase. It’s filled with colorful and rather potent goodies. Valued at $60, you can get one of these bags with any purchase of $25 or more.
Inside the silver and white tiger print pouch, try out the Zero Gravity Repairwear Lift (moisturizer), Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser, Color Surge Eye Shadow Duo featuring ginger and lilac colors, Soft Pressed Powder Blush in a rose color, Lash Doubling Mascara, Long Last Lipstick in beach coral, and Long Last Glosswear SPF 15.
The hits from this kit are definitely the mascara–I was told “it’s distracting”–and the Zero Gravity Repairwear, which uses a retinol/peptide complex to increase the rate of skin turnover and collagen production.
The miss would probably be the Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser. It seems to work properly, but smells moldy.
Available at Nordstrom stores nationwide and Nordstrom.com until November 22.
