|THE KISSABLE LIP SET|
|CLOSE UP: HEART KEY RING AND SELF EMBOSSED PURSE PATTERN|
There’s nothing better than buying something that makes you look gorgeous as well as helping a good cause. In my mind that’s what really makes a feel good factor.
For the fifth year running, Clinique have partnered up with Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity (GOSH) for the KISS IT BETTER appeal. The brainchild of Carmel Allen – a former beauty director of glossy magazines, her daughter Josephine was treated at the pioneering hospital for Neuroblastoma, a type of cancer. Unless you’ve been in that position you cannot imagine the angst and turmoil Carmel and family must have gone through, but coming through the other side – thankfully Josephine, now 10 is leading a happy and healthy life, Carmel wanted to turn the experience into something positive. And make a difference she has to the lives of children with cancer everywhere. And the tagline? “The premise was simple,” explains Carmel, “kiss it better is something every parent says and does when their child is sick or injured.”
During the month of February (what a great Valentine’s Day present, so starting hinting now!) half of the retail price will be banked straight into the appeal. And wowser, what a gift! Just feast your eyes on this limited edition Kissable Lip Set. The silver purse is droolsville enough complete with a heart key ring hanging cutely from the zipper, but inside there’s everything you need to pucker and pout. Drum roll please for: the new Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Woppin’ Watermelon along with all time must-haves including, Vitamin C Lip Smoothie Antioxidant Lip Colour in Pink Me Up, Superbalm Moisturising Gloss in Raspberry and Lost Last Glosswear SPF15 in Mystic. And as an encore for the charity, a £2 donation will also apply to all Clinique lipsticks or lipglosses sold at House of Fraser stores nationwide throughout February. It’s just another reason to heart Clinique.
The Limited Edition Kissable Lip Set costs, £25 and available exclusively at House of Fraser nationwide (excluding Ireland) and online at www.clinique.co.uk
