BELLEVUE, Wash. and LOS ANGELES, March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- For the first time, Beauty.com, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of drugstore.com, inc. (Nasdaq: DSCM), has enlisted Los Angeles-based women's wear designer Jenni Kayne to create a fashion-forward bag that doubles as a cosmetic case or fashionable clutch. Customers receive the limited edition designer bag filled with a dozen deluxe product samples from today's top prestige beauty brands with a purchase of $75 or more on the Beauty.com(TM) site.
"We always strive to provide our customers with a unique, prestige shopping experience," says Kathleen McNeill, vice president of beauty for Beauty.com and drugstore.com. "We're happy to be able to offer our customers a valuable designer gift from someone as well-respected and recognized as Jenni Kayne simply for purchasing their beauty basics."
Beauty.com first partnered with Jenni Kayne in 2007, providing gift bags for the guests at her collection's presentation during New York City's Fashion Week. The designer, whose collection is favored by celebrities such as Michelle Pfeiffer, Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez and Rachel Bilson, is known for a wearably-chic head to toe look that includes everything from apparel to hats and footwear.
"I am honored to be the first designer to do a bag with Beauty.com -- it's an exciting way to marry the worlds of beauty and fashion and reach my audience in a new way," says Jenni Kayne. "Beauty.com has always been very supportive of me, and this is a great opportunity to continue our relationship."
The Jenni Kayne for Beauty.com bag offers a new spin on two strong
seasonal trends: a sleek 6x12" clutch in a playful ethnic print. Its
neutral color palette complements spring brights or classic separates,
making it a great contemporary addition to any wardrobe. The bag contains
deluxe samples valued at more than $100 from popular Beauty.com brands,
Murad Renewal Home Facial Treatment
Caudalie Gentle Conditioning Shampoo
Oscar Blandi Olio di Jasmine Hair Serum
L'Occitane Shea Butter Body Lotion
