Clinique's Attracted to Color Event: May 15-25

I know...Clinique is not always so exciting on the makeup front. We've all been wearing it since we were 13.

HOWEVER, what they are exceptionally good at is giving away free stuff to draw you into their makeup counters. And that, friends, is what I'm here to talk about.

We all love a Clinique Bonus. Buy a small amount (remember when it used to be only $15???), get a useless bag with a bunch of other semi-useful stuff in it. Who doesn't love free crap? Certainly I do. But the downside to the bonus is having to BUY something. I don't always need Clinique stuff. I like to diversify my makeup portfolio - like any good investor.

Well, Clinique's Attracted to Color Event at Belk is one of the rare species of Clinique event (they only come around 1-2 times a year!) where all you have to do is let them make you up, and they give you freebies! Of course, you have to withstand the sales tactics, but they're usually not that hardcore about it anymore. They have caved, they know all we want is the free stuff. And if you are lucky enough (like me) to be from a very small town where you have the SAME Clinique rep do your makeup every time you're there, well, let's just say they get heavy handed with the freebies.

In this event, you make an appointment, get your face done, and you get a free sample of 2 Clinique Products - their Fresh Bloom Allover Color (your choice of 2 shades - one shown above), a cute springy blush with a three-toned flower, and a bottle of their Take the Day Off makeup remover for eyes and lips.

Not bad for having someone put makeup on you! All in a day's work, right?

The event goes from May 15-25th, but I believe they are booking appointments now. I checked online at, and I'm 90% sure this is a national event, so everyone has a chance to check this out!

Also, for those of you who have a Dillard's (at least around here), come June Clinique starts their Summer Coolers event - another freebie! After a consultation, you'll get a sample of their Super Defense Moisturizer with SPF 25, and a Superbalm Moisturizing Lip Gloss, your choice of two shades. From what I understand, this is set for the middle of June, so make sure you check that out!
