I’ve been carrying something really girly and pretty around lately, in my new favorite color, sparkle. The ALEX Sparkle Clutch, part of the Ibiza Collection from Stephanie Johnson for spring 2012, is the way to tote around beautiful makeup. I did some traveling for work the earlier part of this week, and the ALEX housed all I needed and more. Emphasis on the more. I can’t not bring extra!
The ALEX Sparkle Clutch comes in three covetable colors – blush, berry and turquoise. All of which are the perfect makeup bag, or, as the name suggests, a clutch. How perfect would this be for a night out? The shingle-style sparkles are a party in a bag. Stephanie has made something that could stray youthful into a sophisticated and elegant bag.
I was instantly drawn to the blush color. It reminded me of Essie’s A Cut Above nail polish from the Luxeffects collection (a close match, right?) I love the traces of gold and the deep purple lining. I kinda love everything about this bag, which is why it’s this week’s Beauty VIP. As for what I put in the bag, here’s a peek:
NARS Gaiety is probably going to be in this makeup bag for a long time — love that blush! As is the Fix My Skin Balm. Did I mention I traveled to Minneapolis earlier in the week? Temps were in the negatives. Between that and dry plane and hotel air, my skin thanked me for packing it. Oh, and I don’t leave home without MAC Moleskin Eyeshadow.
If you’re looking for some sophisticated sparkle in your makeup bag, check out the ALEX at Stephanie Johnson, where you can snag it for $45.
