A Package Deal

As I have said many times I am a sucker for marketing and good packaging. When Sephora puts together their sampler packages it is all I can do not to spend $100 on multiple trial sized beauty products. Here are some they have now.Above is the Get Pink'd Pink Lip Deluxe Sampler and below is the Skin Saviors Moisturizers Deluxe Sample Kit.


Above-Eau Girl Deluxe Fragrance Sampler Below (a great summer gift)- Splashstash Waterproof Deluxe Sampler

I think I love these because it brings me back to the days when I was young and would wait to buy my 3 step Clinique system when they were having a gift bag.

All the gift bags used to be Clinique green but it looks like now they have changed that....

Am I the only one with this Clinique memory as a young teen? Who do you think has the best gift sets?

Awww, I still wait around to get my flier in the mail so I know when to pounce! I just had to replace my clarifying lotion and it just felt wrong not getting the 3 together. Ahhh, memories... wait, what am I talking about? Im still a loyal Clinique follower! And lets be real, you've seen my makeup drawer, Im a shameless toiletry whore. (sheepish)

Being a beauty/product fanatic, I have to say, the skin saviors package is fulled with EXCELLENT goodies...I think you should definitely get it...between the hope in a jar and the Dr. Murad, you can't go wrong!

Nope Clinique gift was the best time ever when I was 16. I would make my mom wait to buy her stuff too. I was a totally mall rat when I was 10ish. I used to go around and collect as many free samples as possible with my friends as our Friday night outing.

Oh I'm a sucker as well. Anything in a pretty package and I'm sold. I am so in the need of makeup and I'm actually headed out to Sephora next week with Ms. Lisi from The Beauty Files.

Ah Clinque so brings back memories of junior high and early HS. Too funny..

I love Sephora but Clinique is evil and makes me break-out. Everyone always had such cute Clinique stuff and it was just awful on me and would make me breakout everywhere---even the eye shadow :(
