Last Friday I attended the CEW Beauty Awards aka the Tony Awards of beauty. I was in the room with many, many movers and shakers in the beauty industry (thanks Kaplow for the invite!) and got to see so many of my fave brands and brand teams.

With so many brands giving us a sneak peak into their latest collections, I can’t wait to start shopping for all my friends and families. These Clinique releases will probably end up in my shopping cart.

Foundation is one of my favorite pieces of makeup (so is blush, okay and concealer, alright add lipstick in there, too, you know what—might as well add mascara and highlighter, too) so if it comes in my shade, I want to try it…lol. Also I have the whole beauty blogger thing going so I review stuff constantly…lol.


Clinique The Nutcracker Suite Eye and Cheek Palettes for Holiday


For holiday Clinique and the American Ballet Theatre have joined forces to introduce The Nutcracker Suite collection.

You can buy beauty and do good (I mean, other than the good of being even more beat, hunty).

Since its start, the fund has helped consumers in five countries. Clinique has also donated one million dollars to help build 5 schools around the world.
