A very worthwhile purchase from Clinique

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 13 - 2011

It’s every mother’s worst fear… watching their child get sick and being powerless to wade in and fix it all.

Clinique are once again partnering with Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity for the KISS IT BETTER appeal which raises money to fund research into the causes and treatment of childhood cancer.

Throughout February, you’ll be able to purchase a special Limited Edition Smoothie Kisses Lip Gloss Set (£22.50) featuring the latest lip launch from Clinique, Vitamin C Lip Smoothie Antioxidant Lip Colour.

The set includes four Vitamin C Lip Smoothie glosses, in Pink Me Up, Goodness Grapecious, Nude-tricious and Mango-thon, all housed in a brightly coloured pink bag.

Sold exclusively in House of Fraser stores nationwide during the month of February, £4.00 from each purchase will go to the KISS IT BETER appeal (£2 from Clinique and £2 from House of Fraser).

If the new set doesn’t take your fancy, then A £2.00 donation will also apply to all Clinique lipstick or lip gloss (£15.00) sold at House of Fraser stores nationwide, throughout February. (£1.00 will be donated by Clinique and £1.00 will be donated by House of Fraser).

  1. That looks like a fab buy, and I always love to support the children’s hospital, we just never know when or if one day we might need it for our little ones ..

    I really like the Clinique lip smoothies, Just bought one last week.. :)

    Thanks for this helpful post x

    What a fabulous buy and for such an amazing cause. Thank you.

    The only downside is I have no idea where my closest House Of Fraser store is…Reading maybe? I’m in Southampton too xxx

    I wish the cosmetic companies would give more for charity (like the whole price of the product like Mac Viva Glams) but it’s better than nothing :-) I’ll check the Clinique stand next time.

  4. I was looking at this in InStyle magazine last week! I love the purse that comes with it and the lip smoothies are great. The icing on the cake is the donation to GOSH (my sister’s got 2 children – 1 boy & 1 girl – and they were both born profoundly deaf. They both had double cochlear implants & have had appointments at GOSH, which does an amazing job).

    Great post, thanks for making us all aware :) x
