Eyeliner -CLINIQUE -Quickliner for Eyes

Years and years and years (we're talking probably around 5 years or even older), apparently i got one of these from a gift with purchase in Intense Ivy shade. I put it in a drawer somewhere and promptly forgot about it.

Queue 2019, i've stopped buying more stuff when i know i have so much in my drawers, so as part of that process of downsizing and figuring out what i can use, what i need to use up, etc., i went through all of my liners. In the process of swatching all my liners (including colored stuff), I discovered the gwp quickliner from yeaaaaaaaaaars ago.

First, i'm honestly shocked that 5-8 years later, it's still creamy and doesn't budge. What even, it's crazy. And it haven't gone bad or anything because it haven't been irritating my eyes, and in fact it stays put longer than many of my other more expensive and fresher liners.

The color name is apt, as it's a dark shimmery green - it's basically a black that pulls a yellow-green, so can certainly be used in lieu of a standard black. It is creamy and smooth, goes on my lid so easily with no tugging or harshness, but dries down quickly and then it doesn't budge. i never have trouble with this liner smudging at the inner corner - or rather my inner corner folds kind of funny, and so most liners ends up smudging there and then i got some black stuff on the bottom side of my inner corner. This liner DOES rub off at my inner corner, however it somehow rubs off clean (i have no idea how), because it doesn't make the bottom of my lashline grimy and smudged.

I am seriously enjoying using this product. It IS a bit expensive though, so i'm not sure about repurchasing when i have so much other stuff, but it's definitely on my "maybe" list for repurchasing when i'm done with all my liners, it's that good. I also like that it's a retractable pencil which means no need to sharpen, and it's not so thin that the tip breaks (which i've experienced with some japanese retractable liners). I DO know that there have been instances with other brands where the black smudges but the brown or the shimmery shades don't, so there IS a chance that the cream black version of this might smudge, but I'll figure that out when i get to it.

This reminds me of my favorite drugstore retractable pencil liner (Physician's Formula's shimmer strip retractrable liner trio in brown eyes), but twice as good (but also twice as expensive!)

Concealers -CLINIQUE -Airbrush Concealer

I love love love this concealer, thank you Lisa Eldridge!! It's absolutely perfect for a no-makeup makeup concealer, and it's unique properties; a reflective and concealing formula make for such great results! It's so easy applying this and it takes virtually minutes as you just swipe some on and just tap it with your finger. Though calculating the cost for this concealer results in it actually being really really expensive, when you calculate it per ounce it's $450 per fl ounce (it's 0.05oz), compared to something like the tarte shape tape (which is 0.33 oz) it's only $81 per fl ounce!!! It's crazy and I don't know what I'm going to do on repurchasing this product but I love it soo much! While it's subtle concealing properties are great for people who don't want too much coverage and want to make it subtle, it may not suit people who are looking for fuller coverage like people who do more heavier looks like instagram makeup. It also sucks for blemishes, especially failing in pronounced bumps as the reflecting properties will just highlight it even more though with 'flat' blemishes like broken capillaries and scars it does a adequate job in concealing those areas. It also is great in lightening under the nose and any dark spots, so I would really see this product as more of an under-eye and brightening concealer.

Mascara -CLINIQUE -Naturally Glossy Mascara

I am tempted to deduct one lippie for lack of color selection. I would love to see it in grey or blue. Other than that, this is a great product. I have relied on this for years, as my "go to" natural mascara.

The wand is pretty easy to work with, although I would also love if they would carry a version with a super thin mascara wand. Of course, that really goes for ALL mascara. With blonde lashes, I will always be a sucker for a super thin mascara wand (ie IT Tightline), so I can get my roots... With that said, this wand is pretty good at getting most of my lashes, and I love the formula.

I find that the brown is almost too natural on me, despite my status as practically an albino. Not sure why, but I prefer the black. I can only get away with black mascara if I have practically no other makeup on my eyes, but this black is natural enough that I can use it even with liner, and it won't look too harsh...

Blush -CLINIQUE -Cheek Pop Blush - Nude Pop

This blush is a no-brainer for fair-medium skin tones. I love it with red lipstick, because it adds some warmth and color to the cheeks without competing with a bold lip. Personally, I hate bronzer as blush, it just looks dirty on my NW20ish skin. It looks great on others, though, and Nude Pop gives me a version of that, that actually looks great on me. All of the Pop blushes have a gorgeous glow to them, without being shimmery, and they are sheer enough that even the dark and bright colors are wearable for most people. These are my very favorite blushes, formula-wise, and though they are fairly small for a blush (.12oz), they are very densely packed and take forever to use up.
