This Fashion Week join Talika, the cosmetics company known for its eye products containing natural plant-based ingredients, in kicking off the “I Care for Talika” contest, an online competition in which you have a chance to win a trip to Paris and to design packaging for an upcoming Talika gift set. This Fashion Week, several artists will leave an imprint on the streets of New York City on September 16th, a day filled with Talika street art at the following locations:

Rockefeller Center
Milk Studios
Lincoln Center
Columbus Circle
Times Square
Meatpacking District
The Bowery

For exact locations and times, check Twitter (@TalikaCosmetics) and Facebook ( on the day of the event. Be one of the first five people to arrive at each location, with a password that Talika will provide, and win an amazing selection of Talika products!

For those of you who don’t make it in the first five, Talika cigarette girls (dressed in blue) will be handing out samples and information about the contest all day long.

The “I Care for Talika” contest is an online competition in which participants will post a piece of visual art that they think represents Talika. You don’t have to be a professional artist, you just need to have a fantastic and creative idea. So check out the street art, try out your samples and get those creative juices flowing.
The winner will have the opportunity to design the packaging for a Talika gift set and will receive a two-night trip for two to Paris, including airfare, hotel, a treatment at the Talika Spa in the Pershing Hall Hotel and a meeting with members of Talika’s creative team to discuss the gift set packaging design.

Post your Talika art to between from Thursday, September 16th to Saturday, October 30th. Good luck getting to Paris!!
