Blush -Clinique - Blushing Blush Powder Blush - Smoldering Plum

Georgous colour. Didn't break me out at all whereas a lot of products do. Finely milled.

Staying power was poor on me.

With the clear travel sized packaging, the lettering flaked and the case came apart. I believe they have changed this now though.

Eyeliner -Clinique - Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen

on 10/21/2017 3:58:00 PM

My new favorite eye liner. This has everything that I want from an eyeliner. Great color pay off, thin pointy brush , waterproof, easy to use, no need to wash brush after every use, stay on your eye lid all day, not expensive also and has a great package. I dont think I will go back to gel eyeliners. So long gel eyeliners. I used YSL's pen eyeliner a couple of years ago but imo Clinique's is better. You dont have to twist the pen in order to get ink and also brush tip is thinner.

Liquid -Clinique - Stay-Matte Oil-Free Makeup

This is the only foundation I use now. I have repurchased several times. I don't like all Clinique foundations. Some of them seem to oxidise on me.

It never breaks me out, when almost everything else does and never irritates my very sensitive skin. I'm naturally very light brown in complexion and it's hard to find foundations that are right and not too orange. The 'neutral' is great for winter for me and 'honey' is great for the rest of the year.

This foundation is a natural, perhaps semi - matte and lasts fairly well.

Pros:

~ doesn't break me out even if I've fallen asleep in it
~ natural colour selection
~ good for sensitive skin (I get red, raised skin from lots of products and find this totally innocuous)
~ buildable
~ lasts quite well. Might reapply once in the evening bearing in mind I use this watered down.
~ some oil control
~ not drying
~ shape of packaging means it fits in a small hand bag
~ one tube lasts me ages and ages.

Cons:
~ might not be matte enough for 'matte purists'
~ Is too heavy looking for my prefernace without being mixed with moisturiser though for me this means it lasts several months. Also my skin is more normal - oily than truly oily and is very clear these days (here's to finding appropriate products and getting out of my teens!)
~can make blocked pores on nose (which occur after I have tried inappropriate skincare / make up products, this not being one of them) stand out more.
~pricey ish but is on the lower side of cost of premium make up and for the quality, for something that doesn't break me out and something that lasts so long it is worth every penny.
~packaging isn't super luxe, especially for the price, though I quite like the simplicity of it.


Mascara -Clinique - High Impact Mascara

This is quite an average mascara considering the price, it makes my eyelashes look nice and long but it's quite clumpy and tends to flake. My biggest issue with it though is how much it seems to have irritated my eyes, they've been constantly watery since I started using this mascara and if I get any of it in my eyes it causes intense burning. I'm not sure how many others have experienced this but I personally won't be buying it again.


Cleansers -Clinique - Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

Meh. I said I wouldn't buy this again, but I'm not sure yet. I got a little one from Ulta a few weeks ago and have used it maybe half a dozen times and I just don't love it. It's not terrible, but I'm going to have to use it with other products to see if I like it more. I bought this partially because of the hype and good reviews, and partially because I wanted an all-purpose makeup remover.

The consistency doesn't bother me because I've used coconut oil to remove my makeup pretty often in the past, but if you don't like oils because of how they feel, maybe skip trying this.

What I do like is how well it removes most of my makeup. It actually does pretty well with my face makeup, eye shadow, and eyebrows. Anything that's left over (if anything is left over) is easily removed with micellar water, toner, or cleanser. Which I use depends mostly on how tired I am when I'm taking off my makeup, but I usually use this, then micellar water or cleanser, then toner. If I just had on BB cream and mascara, I might just use this and then toner.

But mascara and eyeliner? Ugh. It does work, kind of, but it takes forever, irritates my eyes really bad (some of that is from the product, some is the way it breaks down my mascara, which I'm getting to), and my mascara comes off in this sharp grainy bits which then scratches a bit all over my eye area. It also doesn't seem to get all of my mascara and the liner on my upper lash line off, so I end up having to use some of my Neutrogena eye makeup remover to get the rest off. I've tried this with two or three mascaras so far, and two liners. Maybe it's just the products I'm using. If I use something else and the results change, I'll come back and edit this review.

I do like that it doesn't seem to dry out my skin or leave it feeling greasy after I wash it off. That's nice. But I feel like for how little product you get, and how much it takes to get your makeup off, it isn't really worth the price. It would be, possibly, if it did a better job with my eye makeup. There's just not enough product (in the full sized or mini jar) for the price and inefficiency for me to justify switching to this.
