BELLEVUE, Wash. and NEW YORK, March 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Beauty.com, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of drugstore.com, inc. (Nasdaq: DSCM), announces the launch of the Y Bag by celebrated designer Yigal Azrouel. Available starting Tuesday, March 8th, this exclusive beauty bag is a gift with $100 Beauty.com™ purchase for customers who shop through www.beauty.com/yigal.
"The Y Bag is really designed for a modern woman who needs something versatile for everyday use," says Yigal Azrouel. "It's simple, but there's a toughness to the details that gives a stylish edge to whoever carries it."
Taking its cues from the mini-camera bag in shape, this svelte black flap-front pouch sports a quilted cotton exterior with faux-leather detailing. The detachable wristlet strap and sleek magnetic closure tab make it ideal for travel. Utilitarian chic both inside and out, the interior comes lined in a graphic black and white leopard print and features a zippered mini-compartment, elastic loops, and a drawstring closure for extra-secure transport of all your beauty picks.
