I’ve received my summer “care package” from Clinique a few weeks ago (yeah, I know I’m a little behind with this post) and I’m very excited to spill the “tea” on some of these treats that I purchased. Some are items that I love and needed to replenished and others are items thats I’ve been waiting to try and haven’t purchased until now.
Lets start with my replenishments…
Makeup Brush Cleanser: This is a good cleanser to both deep clean your brushes and quick clean in between deep cleans. I also like to wipe down my white bathroom counter with this considering it always has some trace of makeup on it.
7 Day Scrub Cream: This scrub cream is a good physical exfoliator for all skin types. A added bonus of this product is that after you massage it in and get some of that scrubbing action going, you can let it sit on your face until the film turns from white to clear and TA DA you have some added moisture to the skin. This is especially good for when your skin is feeling a little dry.
Quickliner for Eyes (Intense Midnight): This is one of the best eyeliners that I’ve tried. This pretty blue hue doesn’t only look fabulous but it also is long wearing, smudge resistant and great for sensitive eyes.
Quickliner for Lips (Shade Chocolate Chip): If your looking for a basic brown lip liner that lasts, this is a good one. I use this lip liner to line my lips primarily for nude/brown lipsticks and glosses but also to tone down very bright colors such as oranges/corals and pinks.
Quickliner for Lips (Shade Plummy): One of my all time favorite lip liners. I love to pair this liner with violets and reds and occasionally some pinks if I’m going for an ombre effect.
High Impact Extreme Mascara(Extreme Black): Anyone that knows me knows that I complain that I am bald on the lids! I have little to no eyelashes but this mascara takes my lashes from 0 to 100….real quick (I’m obsessed with saying that btw)
Pore Refining Solutions Foundation(DISCONTINUED): Though this foundation is meant for someone who suffers from enlarged pores, I love this foundation because of the smoothing capabilities. My skin always looks extra flawless when I wear it and the natural matte finish along with the lightweight feel is a breath of fresh air for an oily skin diva like myself.
Acne Solutions Clearing Gel: So let me just say this is life in a bottle. This product is great for that occasional stubborn pimple that may occur at the worst time but also great for everyday usage (depending on your skin type and main skin concerns). This is a product that you should have a few of on hand, especially one for on the go!
And now for the Newbies.
Clinique Smart Custom Repair Eye Treatment: This eye treatment is meant to help with firming and brightening around the eyes. Though not a big concern of mine, it’s never too early to get a head start right?
Clinique Pop Lip Color + Lip Primer (Berry Pop):I’ve tried this lipstick prior to buying it and I was amazed at how long it lasted. It lasted even through me eating lunch which usually leaves my lips looking a hot mess. I plan on get this lipstick in Cola also (it wasn’t available at the time :/ )
Blushing Blush Powder Blush (Precious Posy): This is an awesome blush if you want some peachy and subtle that adds a splash of warmth to the face.
Powder Foundation Brush: Compared to a standard powder brush, this brush is flat in order to better apply powders. The anti-bacterial natural bristles are a plus!
Super Fine Brow Liner: Though probably shouldn’t touch my brows right now because I need to get them waxed, I have filling in the gaps of my brows does make a difference. I hate that whole very artificial drawn on mustache above the lid look. This is a thin pencil that will give natural hair strokes as long as you don’t over do it. Eyebrows on #FLEEK for real.
I’ll do some looks over the weekend with these products so be on the look out!
