Some Cool LinksWednesday, April 28, 2010
Recently I told you about the great 50 Little Luxuries Contest that Darphin is holding in celebration of their new face cream, Hydraskin Essential, which I've heard described as an incredibly moisturizing cream for only $50 (amazing when you consider most brands in their "range" are competing to come out with the most expensive cream).
I heard from a birdie at Darphin that a lot of the entries in this contest were 15 Minute Beauty Fanatic readers (yay!), which is great! They've come out with their finalists, and you should run over there to vote for them!
Total Beauty is one of my favorite beauty sites. They have a huge number of product reviews on-line, and luckily they've just come out with a Total Beauty iPhone App to make all of those reviews portable and accessible! No more standing around Sephora without a clue what to buy...
Talk about great benefits to shopping...
Goodshop.com works with 1,400 stores including 1-800-Flowers, Bloomingdales, Bliss, SpaFinder, and Sephora to donate a percentage of each purchase to the charity of your choice. Just pick where you want the money to go, then follow the link to the store from Goodshop to earn credit.
Purple Lab is holding a great contest in celebration of their new cosmetic collection. Until May 1st, use Purple Lab's favorite brands on Closet Couture to create an outfit inspired by the new line. The top 3 outfits win Purple Lab products.
I saw this featured on my local news tonight, and now I'm sharing it with everyone!
Groupon is a great new website that introduces you to local merchants. Sign up for free, and every day they'll send you an offer for that day's Groupon. Recent ones in my area included $125 of salon services for $45, half off at local bakeries, etc. You buy the groupon, and if enough people buy it (there is a threshold that they need to pass), then your credit card is charged and you can print off the groupon to use.
I love that this supports area businesses, and you can get some pretty amazing deals. They feature a lot of cities and are adding more all the time, check to see if your area is one of them!
This one is really for your stylist. Matrix is holding a contest for them to submit their unique, personalized mannequin by simply mailing in or uploading images of their design to MannequinMania.com and give them the chance to win up to $25,000!
The Grand Prize winner will be visited at their hometowns by stylist icon Tabatha Coffey of “Tabatha’s Salon Takeover” and the Mannequin Mania video crew for an interview and a day of style as Tabatha joins them at their salon or beauty school.
