This is the closest thing you’ll come to a beauty sale. Three brands – ghd, Illamasqua and Clinique – are offering trade-in deals. So how does it all work?
Illamasqua: I’m in love with this cult UK makeup range and from tomorrow you haven’t any excuse not to try it out for yourself. Bring in any product from any brand (used, broken, empty … you get my drift. Anything!) and you’ll get 25% off all your product purchases at Illamasqua. Just one try of these highly pigmented products and you’ll be hooked. The Illamasqua Makeup Amnesty runs from tomorrow until January 30. Available Myer Brisbane City, Robina, Sydney City, Bondi Junction, Melbourne City and Chadstone.
ghd: The popular ghd Styler Trade-In offer is on again. It’s as simple has handing over your used or unwanted styling tool and in return you’ll receive $30 off the ghd Gold Classic Styler. Even if you have a ghd already this is worth it for the update because the ghd Gold Classic Styler is its most technically advanced to date. The new ghd Gold Classic Styler features golden plates for extra shine, a chic dot design on the casing as well as an improved outer body. The ghd Gold Classic Styler is both cooler to touch and lighter to handle – the perfect combination to create cutting-edge new looks with ease. The trade-in offer is on now until February 20, 2011 at participating salons nationally. You can upgrade to the new ghd Gold Classic Styler, available as part of the ghd Midnight Collection ($289) or ghd Deluxe Midnight Collection ($309). Ph 1300 880 209 for stockists.
Clinique: Everyone has a dodgy mascara tube lurking around their beauty cabinet? Or is that just me? Maybe you do the right thing and throw them out every three months. Religiously. Either way, listen up. From January 17-22, you can take any old mascara to select Clinique counters, have a consultation and they’ll exchange it for a sample of your choice of Deluxe Mascara for FREE*. Yep, that’s right. FREE mascara. Choose from High Lengths Mascara, High Impact Curling Mascara or High Impact Mascara. The offer is available at Myer Sydney and David Jones Elizabeth Street (NSW); Myer Melbourne, David Jones Bourke Street (VIC); Myer Brisbane, David Jones Queens Plaza (QLD); Myer Adelaide, David Jones Rundall Mall (SA); Myer Perth, David Jones Hay Street (WA). *One only per customer.
