Update: The winner of the Pure Transformation Night Treatment is Kari and Alyssa!  Congratulations Kari and Alyssa and a big thank you to all who participated!

Already a devout fan of Bare Escentual’s powder foundation (I’m prone to acne and this is the only product I use), I was recently invited to try their latest invention: The new Bareminerals Skincare line powered by their proprietary Rareminerals Activesoil Complex.  This powerful ingredient, only available from Bareminerals, contains a blend of macro and micro minerals and is clinically proven to deliver faster cell turnover and noticeably smaller pores.  Remarkably, the Rareminerals Activesoil Complex has three times the antioxidant capacity of blueberries.  I personally used the Pure transformation Night Treatment and can honestly say that in a couple of days my pores were visibly smaller and my skin smoother and more vibrant.

Find out yourself!  Bare Escentuals is offering two lucky Fashiongrail readers their Pure Transformation Night Treatment for free.  Simply “like” Bare Escentuals on Facebook and leave a comment on Fashiongrail telling us why you could use this product as part of your nightly facial routine (dull skin, huge pores, etc.).  Giveaway runs from Monday, March 28 to Friday, April 1.  Good luck!

picture-16Update:  The winner of the Etsy Clara’s Metropolitan Clutch is carlyjcais with the following comment: ” What lovely clutches! I’d choose Clara’s Metropolitan Clutch from The Conservatory Collection (the black pattern with the yellow ribbon accent). I’d pair it with this cool pair of 80’s pleat-front pants I picked up at Goodwill (cuffed, of course), a pair of platform strappy black sandals, a cream blazer with DIY gold studding on the lapel, a double-wrap black belt with tiny gold stud detailing, and a dangly feather earrings made of black-and-white partridge feathers and dyed long yellow rooster feathers (to pick up the beautiful yellow in the clutch). Plus some chunky bangles, and some long necklaces over a white tank underneath. Black, white and yellow – perfect!”

Congratulations Carly and a big thank you to all of you who participated!

Etsy has a treasure trove of creative souls and I recently stumbled upon an incredibly talented indie designer with a shop called Third Willow. Third Willow has graciously offered one lucky Fashiongrail devotee a remarkable handcrafted and vintage inspired pierce: Clara’s Metropolitan Clutch.  The contest will run from Monday, June 8 to Friday June 12 winner will be selected on Saturday, June 13.

How to Play: Go to Third Willow and pick your favorite clutch.  Return to Fashiongrail and leave a comment to the following question: “What would you wear it with?”  Make sure you name the clutch you picked!  The most creative answer will win!  Have fun and good luck!

Product Description: Clara’s Metropolitan Clutch in gray-green cotton fabric with a printed tweed pattern has ruffled detail and saddle brown, croc embossed leather ribbon accenting, and is lined in lustrous, black taffeta with interfacing added for structure and support.  Bag is approximately 11″ wide at the base with an 11” opening x 5” tall x 1″ deep (when filled).  The flap closure of the bag covers the entire opening of the clutch. The clutch closure also includes a silver magnetic snap.  This is a great clutch for lunch with the girls, but just sassy enough for nights out dancing. Clara’s Metropolitan Clutch is also formal enough for weddings and proms. It’s the perfect accessory to go with the perfect little cocktail dress or a great pair of jeans and heels!  Interior of bag has three generous sized pockets for cell phones, ipods, make-up, keys, or anything else you may need to find quickly in your handbag!
