Lilly Pulitzer for Target Makeup Bag Giveaway

Lilly_for_Target_Beauty_Bag

This cute Lilly Pulitzer for Target make-up bag was on the rack with other generic make-up bags. The price for $24.99.

By now we all know the sad story of the Lilly Pulitzer for Target sell-out. Much of the collection was bought to be resold on eBay for profit by resellers who were allowed to buy unlimited quantities at Target. I know so many of my readers are still upset that they couldn’t get their Lilly Pulitzer after waiting in line at the store or shopping late at night on Target.com. So, I’ve decided to do a little giveaway. I was able to pick-up this colorful makeup bag at Target last week, and I’d like to offer my loyal readers to chance to win it (instead of keeping it for myself.) Please not this giveaway is not sponsored by Target and I paid for the bag myself. Read on to learn how to enter to win this cute bag. It can even be carried as a handbag or a tote!

Topshop Puts Met Gala Dresses on Sale

topshop-met-gala-2015

Topshop CEO Sir Phillip Green poses with Emily Ratajowski, Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin and Josephine de la Baume (all in Topshop) at last nights Met Gala.

Last night at the Met Gala ball in New York Topshop made bespoke gowns for Emily Ratajowski, Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin and Josephine de la Baume. Today, retail versions of those gowns went on sale at Topshop.com.  Frankly, I was impressed by the gowns Topshop produced.  They were tasteful and appropriate for the night’s theme of China: Through the Looking Glass.”   While stars like Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce showed up in dresses that were barely there, the Topshop dresses provided full coverage looking sophisticated and gorgeous.  Today, four versions of the bespoke dresses made for the Met Gala Ball went on sale at Topshop.com.

Lilly Pulitzer Returns Trickle Into Target Stores

Lilly_for_Target_Beauty_Bag

This cute Lilly Pulitzer for Target make-up bag was on the rack with other generic make-up bags. The price was $24.99.

Several of you have written in to ask about Lilly Pulitzer for Target in-store.   Yes, readers, the returns are slowly trickling in.  Target Addict has seen them and so have I.  I stopped by two Targets today  looking for Lilly Pulitzer returns and both stores had a bit of Lilly on the racks. I saw chairs, umbrella stands, beauty cases, nail files and a few dresses and tops.  There wasn’t a lot of the elusive Lilly for Target collection, but there was enough to make the trip worthwhile.   Buying at the Target price and doing a little hunting beats shopping the mark-ups on the Lilly Pulitzer collection at eBay.  At the time of this blog post, there are still over 13,000 Lilly Pulitzer for Target items for sale on eBay. If people don’t buy them, you can still expect to see them returned.  Although the 14 day return period is over for refunds, I think customers  can still return items for store credit, so if you love Lilly Pulitzer, keep checking your local Target.  Here’s a few tips.

Beauty Review: belif Moisturizers for Skincare

belif True Cream Moisturizing Bomb

belif True Cream Moisturizing Bomb

The top moisturizing skincare brand from Korea, belif is now available at Sephora. I recently received samples of belif moisturizers and have been using them for a few weeks. I can see why the products are so popular. They are light, organic and deeply hydrating for your skin.   If you have been to Sephora this month,  you may have seen belif’s spartan black and white packaged skincare products on the shelves.  I’ve been using two of belief’s products for that last 5 weeks, and I love the results. I hydrate in the mornings with the Hungarian Essence water followed by  the rich blue True Cream Aqua Bomb.  The products are organic, dermatologically tested and cruelty-free.  Best of all the products are free of Parabens,- Sulfates and Phthalates The Hungarian Essence water is based on the famous beauty regime of Queen Elizabeth of Hungary.  After using both products over the last few weeks, I highly recommend them.  Here’s why.
