As we draw closer to Thanksgiving, we get closer to the first official shopping day of the Christmas season. While some will be rushing through their dinner so that they can grab a spot in line to try to snatch up the hottest deals, some will relax at home and enjoy their holiday and choose to do their holiday shopping online.
What if I told you that you could score a great gift in a great deal without leaving home?
The Holiday Glam Bag is the current collaboration between designer Celeste Austin of SavvyRoot and Caitlin Picou of Kismet Cosmetics.
According to Austin, their first collaboration began with Bridal Bags, which was very similar to the Holiday Glam Bags. By allowing brides to buy the bags as not only a gift for the bridal party, but also as a bridal party makeup kit, they became a hit. Austin and Picou decided to take the idea further by designing a bag for the holidays after analyzing gift sets sold in stores.
“You go to a department store and they always give you those gift sets and you don’t need anything in them, or you want just that one thing and that’s it,” says Austin. “So we decided to do gift sets. That way you can pick the color of the bag and you pick the lipstick that you want, or the lip gloss that you want so you can build the bag on your own.”
The makeup bags come in five colors: flesh pink, matte black, bronze, silver and aqua. Once you choose the color of the bag, you can choose from four different options to fill your bag. Option one offers one Kismet Velvet lipstick and one nail polish. Option two adds the Kismet Opulent bronzer. Option three adds a liquid lipstick and option four is the makeup bag, Velvet lipstick and a liquid lipstick.
What makes the deal great is that the more you add to the Glam Bag, the more you save.
“The first option starts out with a lipstick and a nail polish. When you add the bronzer to it you can get it for only $10 whereas it is $19 on its own,” says Austin.
Austin has also released her popular Snap Cowls in four new colors just in time for the holidays.
The Snap Cowls are the convenient alternative to the classic scarf. The Snap Cowl is a neck piece that you can snap close around the neck to keep warm. The short length allows you to stay warm without the worry of getting tangled up.
The four newly released colors are wheat herringbone, navy plaid, ash grey and black. Previous colors still for sale are tan, blue wash knit and the popular reversible black and grey herringbone Snap Cowl.
The Glam Bags range from $50 to $75 depending on how you build your bag. Snap Cowls start at $48.
The Glam Bags and Snap Cowls are only available online at SavvyRoot.com.
So for that special lady, even if that special lady is yourself, give them the gift of glam this year with the SavvyRoot/Kismet Glam Bag and the SavvyRoot Snap Cowl.
