Ruben Toledo is an illustrator and painter whose work appears in style magazines and art museums alike. He's also one of the fashion world's most celebrated artists (and not just because his wife, Isabel Toledo, is one of Michelle Obama's favorite designers), counting Nordstrom as one of his clients. Last year, he created murals for a set used in the store's advertising; this year, he's bringing his work one step closer to shoppers with this makeup bag.
The bag is a gift with purchase when you spend $100 in Nordstrom's beauty department, while supplies last. Inside are 13 samples from brands ranging from Kate Somerville to Bare Escentuals. I'm normally lukewarm on the whole GWP thing, but as a fan of Toledo's work, I can't help but think this is kinda cool.
