City Pulse

No way, you say? Well…..WAAAY!!!!

That’s right. Saks 5th Avenue and Dior love ya’ honey and want to do something great to show the love. They’ve put together a v-e-r-y generous assortment of Christian Dior Skin Care, Perfume and Cosmetics, in a chic Dior bag to give away to one extremely lucky Beauty News Reader. These are full sized, and are the best of the best…Miss Dior Cherie Eau de Parfum, Miss Dior Cherie Shower Gel, Diorshow Mascara, Dior 5-Colour Eyeshadow kit, Dior L’Or de Vie Crème, Dior L’Or de Vie Eye Crème, Dior L’Or de Vie Extract and of course, the fabulous Dior Bag.

What’s the catch, you ask? There is none. You don’t have to write an essay to say why you love us (we already know you do) you don’t have to buy anything, you don’t have to promise us your first born, and Ed McMahon won’t come a-knocking on your door. All you do is let us know you’d like to win. Simple! Just send an email to with “Glam Saks Giveaway” in the subject line and include your name and telephone number in the body of the email. Then next week, we’ll randomly select one lucky winner. How easy peasy is that, huh? Hurry! All entries must be in by Wednesday, September 3rd, 2008.

Okay now, for those that didn’t win, don’t despair. Saks has something nice for you, too. It’s not free, but it’s one helluva deal! If you’ve seen the Fall 2008 runways, you’ve noticed that the look is the polished face. The makeup experts at Saks have put together a kit of some of the best items from top brands to create the look in their Saks Polished Face Kit. Worth over $400, yet selling for only $198.00 you get: Dior 5-Colour Eyeshadow Kit, YSL Touch Blush in #2, Guerlain Le 2 Mascara in black, Nars- The Multiple in Copacabana, Armani Lip Gloss in #16, a deluxe size sample of Chanel Sublimage skin cream and it’s all contained in a fabulous Marc Jacobs Italian leather clutch. This is not a gift with purchase, and there are no catches. On sale as of September 1st at all Saks stores and while supplies last.

Have your Polished Look done by the experts! I was fortunate enough to have my makeup done by none other than celebrity and exclusive Dior makeup artist Ricky Wilson. The ever-so charming and accomplished Ricky showed me how to create a Polished Face of my own, as well as giving me some helpful tips. I’ve been repeating daily and getting compliments on the new look all week. From September 23rd – 27th, the Dior Pro Team and Jamie Coombes will be on hand at the Saks Dior counter in NYC to show you how to create the Polished Face for Fall for you, too!
