Clinique Pays It Forward This Holiday Season With Random Acts of Happiness
Coming Your Way December 12th, 13th and 14th

Starting tomorrow (Friday) through Sunday, Clinique is celebrating “Happy Weekend.” Their work with Big Brothers Big Sisters is always something I’ve admired with the brand, and it’s great to see them working together this holiday season.  I think it’s great that this year, the children of Big Brothers Big Sisters not only get donated gifts for themselves, but get a full year of skincare and makeup for their moms, too.

Clinique will reunite with Big Brothers Big Sisters, the largest and most effective youth mentoring organization in the country, to ensure that those less fortunate have many opportunities to smile this holiday season. Beyond donating monies, Clinique will give the children and their moms something to be happy about.

Random Acts of Happiness:  In key cities, Clinique will be spreading the holiday happiness by offering complimentary gift wrapping services on the streets, free hot chocolate, Happy candy canes and cookies for kids.  Some lucky customers will be getting free iPods from those entered to win.

CLINIQUE’S TOP TIPS TO MAKING PEOPLE HAPPY THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

1. Smile a lot during the holidays.
2. Say thank you to people.
3. Perform a random act of kindness.
4. Talk about all the good things that are happening in the world.
5. Remind someone about all the reasons to be happy.
6. Give a child something to smile about.

Clinique Holiday Cards designed by children of Big Brothers Big Sisters are available on www.clinique.com while supplies last. Also log on to catch “The Ten Days of Happiness” where Clinique will share a happy thought daily – send to your friends and loved ones and create a virtual happy moment.

Butter London Holiday Lacquer Duo #2 ($20.00) is an absolutely perfect pair of polishes for the holiday season. I love gold, and I love glittery reds. Of course, I’m head over heels (nails?) in love with this set. Chancer is a glittery, shimmery red, while The Full Monty is a semi-pale, gilded gold. It’s not a bling-bling kind of gold; it’s more subdued, but still chalked full of shimmer and shine. The gift box packaging is fun and festive, so it makes a great gift to give to your nail lacquer lovin’ pals. I must admit that I was startled by how wasteful the box is, though, so I do wish they’d reduce the size, even if it is cute.  Chancer is very similar to China Glaze’s Ruby Pumps (which I have and love), though I do feel like the glitter in Chancer is not nearly as chunky as Ruby Pumps, which makes it easier to remove. The Full Monty almost has a chrome/metallic finish, but it still has a lot of shimmer working for it, so you don’t have to worry about brush strokes showing.
