Cliniqueicon is offering one of the best gifts with purchase (GWP) I’ve ever seen! Normally, I’m not one to indulge just to get a GWP, but I this one is worth it just for the zebra-printed bag. And guess what? You get it with any $25 Clinique purchase–that’s not bad at all! The “value” of the GWP is $65, and all in all, the products inside the bag aren’t bad either. I loved Bamboo Pink glosswear is cute, and eyeshadow/blush compact is nice — colors are pretty universal; both shadows tinged with gold, while the blush is a nice medium pink. You also get mini-versions of their Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser (1.7 oz.), Zero Gravity Repairwear Lift Firming Cream (0.5 oz.), Lash Doubling Mascara (0.14 oz.), Long Last Lipstick in Blush Coral, silver lipstick case, and of course, the bag itself, designed by Trina Turk.

In my quest to find some great choices for fall lips, Clinique’s lipsticks in A Different Grape, Black Violet, and Double Truffle appealed to me. (I really love the Double Truffle name; it makes me giggle!) The lipstick formula itself is creamy, softly shimmery (reminds me of a lustre). The shimmer looks more like a nice glossy sheen once applied to the lips.
