Beauty Booty: Bergdorf Goodman Gets Smart-------
When: Tuesday, January 19, through Saturday, January 30.
Where: Bergdorf Goodman, Beauty level, 754 Fifth Avenue at 58th Street, and online at www.bergdorfgoodman.com.
Why: A $200 initial purchase price is steep, but it’s kind of worth it seeing as how these are not your ordinary product minis. The snakeskin bag (which can double as a clutch) is packed with goodies from Amore Pacific, Bulgari, Kanebo Sensai, RéVive, Sisley Paris, and Tom Ford Beauty—in other words, all the brands that you’ve always been interested in trying before buying but still haven’t gotten around to sampling. Also, it provides an interesting keep-this-Web-page-open-on-your-S.O.’s-computer opportunity: With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to request a few items of the pricey perfume variety (like something from Acqua di Parma’s Le Nobili collection, perhaps) and make out with an additional gift as well. Yes, the word you’re looking for is “Score.”
