Lipstick -CLINIQUE -Dramatically Different Lipstick Shaping Lip Colour

on 1/22/2019 11:51:00 AM

I have one of these, which came in a holiday package (on sale, to boot), where I basically ended up getting this with an eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, eye cream and cleansing balm, all in a bag for basically the price of the lipstick. With that kind of deal, it was impossible to resist.

The color that came with this packet is Strut, which is a bright purple-pink. It's vivid and cheery, and not a color I normally would buy (I prefer pinky nudes), but it's a happy surprise. It glides on, looks matte without looking dry, and has a good staying power (not super long lasting, but it fades evenly), feels light and while not moisturizing it feels comfy. The color is kind of fun, too, a bright pink with almost a faint blue shimmer. There's no scent or flavor, typical of Clinique.

Overall I really like it. I wouldn't repurchase this shade on its own, but I'm definitely eyeing some of the others, as I'm liking the formula that much.

Blush -CLINIQUE -Blushing Blush Powder Blush - Cupid

foto

I have been wearing LM Rose Bloom. It's a peachy pink with no shimmer. I like it a lot and it looks natural. Today I decided to fish around in my blush basket for something a little pinker and I found this. I love it! It is a soft pink with shimmer (very slight shimmer). it is so flattering and applies without a patchiness. As soon a I applied I looked bright and just fresher looking. I needed less eye makeup too There is something about a soft pink flush that is flattering to everyone. I received many compliments today and the only thing different was the blush. If you are looking for a pink blush that is reasonable price this is definitely worth a try.


Eyeliner -CLINIQUE -quickliner in slate

on 1/20/2019 3:59:00 PM

I keep trying other brands of eyeliner, and I don't know why. Clinique quickliners have everything I want in an eyeliner. I really wish they didn't discontinue the navy, but anyway. They glide on smoothly, have good color payoff, last all day without smudging, are easy to remove, and don't irritate my sensitive eyes (unlike the intense versions).
I decided to try the slate color and I really like it...it's a medium cool grey that defines my small eyes and doesn't look too stark.

Lipstick -CLINIQUE -Almost Lipstick - Black Honey

I don't know why i haven't heard of it. It's obviously not a lipstick, it just like a tinted lip balm and also the best tinted lip balm that i have ever used. The color is not shown at first but it's getting brighter over time as it mixed with you natural lip color. My lips feel soft and it does plump your lips a little bit.


Treatments (Face) -CLINIQUE -Smart Custom repair serum

foto

This serum surprised me - I had initially used it on my face, but didn't see any kind of measurable results. I didn't want it to go to waste, so I started using it on my throat instead. I've been using this consistently for the last couple of weeks, exclusively on my neck/upper chest and I've seen noticeable results. My skin is smoother, and any lines that were starting have faded noticeably. It's unexpected, since I didn't start out planning to use it on my neck, but the results are solid. I think the neck/upper chest tends to be neglected, and this was a happy accident. I'll actually re-purchase and use as part of my overall skin regime, and give my neck some love!

Liquid -CLINIQUE -Even Better Makeup SPF 15

foto

I have mixed feeling about this foundation but they are generally positive. I bought this recently because I have been reacting really badly around my eye area to other foundations and know Clinique foundations are meant to be good for sensitive skin.

Pros
Gives good coverage, it evens out my skin tone nicely and covers blemishes.
Has a lovely finish, I always used to wear matte foundations because I have oily skin but this has more of natural finish and I think it makes me look healthier.
It generally stays in place all day which I’m impressed with and it doesn’t look too oily and greasy.
When I take it off at the end of the day I think my skin looks nice and healthy.
I like the packaging, I'm not a fan of glass bottles that are heavy to carry round.

Cons
I was finding it quite difficult to apply at first because I’m used to using a brush but I find it goes on and blends much better if I just use my fingers. It took far too long using a brush and I was getting through a lot of product because it doesn’t spread easily.
For some reason it does come off my nose over the course of the day even though it stays everywhere else.
I’m wondering whether it oxidises, I think my face looks slightly more orange at the end of the day but not dramatically so.

Overall I like it and I think I will purchase again. I think the finish of the foundation is it’s real perk, a nice healthy natural glow while still being relatively matte.

Candles -CLINIQUE -Aromatics Elixer

I went through a "everything Clinique" phase in the 80's. I peeled my skin off with toner 3, turnaround cream and I peeled peoples noses wearing this. Its Clinique! Wow! Well, wow is right. I am revisiting some of my faves from back in the day, and this smells like something a Stevie Nicks wannabe might wear Friday night playing with the Fleetwood Mac cover band.


Moisturizers -CLINIQUE -ID Custom Blend Hydrator Collection

I have Dramatically Different Lotion+ with the new "Custom Blend" cartridges (I have purple (plumping) and orange (brightening), and I believe this is the finest moisturizer, ever. I use Elta MD Clear SPF 46 everyday, and, at night, Tretinoin (for discoloration treatment) a couple days a week, and this moisturizer every night. Clinique skin care has worked beautifully for me since the 1980s (when my mother started me using it as "Estee Lauder for young women"), and now my 11 year old daughter is combating her acne with Clinique (and for moisturizer she uses the newest Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly)...which is fantastic for me too, for daytime and hot weather. Adding these cartridges makes it beyond easy to add antioxidants and futher customize products that already work to be even better.

Moisturizers -CLINIQUE -Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+

When I was younger I would get countless little bottles of this every "Clinique Bonus Time" and I never used it. I didn't need moisturizer back then. I used steps 1 & 3 of the "Type 3" system, which didn't have the Dramatically Different Gel till about 12 years ago (if I remember correctly). I was thrilled with the gel, but now that I'm 53, my skin gets dry enough in the winter time that I feel I need a heavier night moisturizer. I LOVE this lotion. Nothing I've found (and I try everything) makes my skin feel softer or look healthier.

I really love this powder foundation. I have it in Matte Beige. My tzone is OILY! I prime with MAC's Refined Skin Zone in my tzone and/or MAC's matte primer. It hangs in there for a full day of work and I always get compliments when I wear this product.

This is very weird! It has a strong and unpleasant chemical smell. Normally Clinique does fine with unscented products, but this is icky. And it absorbs terribly. The first time I used it, I actually paused and thought, “is this a joke? Or is this actually hand soap?” Because it seemed actually to foam and become more visible on my face than it was in my hand. It eventually rubs in, and once it does, it seems to moisturize ok. If I had paid for it, i would return it, but I got a large free sample, so I’ll stick it out. But I wouldn’t buy again. Too weird! And normally I am a huge Clinique fan; their sunscreen and face washes are staples of my routine, and I’ve liked many of their other moisturizers too.

Cleansers -CLINIQUE -Take the Day Off Micellar Cleansing Towelettes

foto

I keep repurchasing these. I know, you can get equally good ones for less, but you get 50 wipes instead of 25 (like with most makeup wipes), and they don’t break me out, don’t irritate or dry out my skin and (what may sound weird), I love their scent.
I use wipes as a first step in my makeup removing routine, then I proceed with cleanser. They just do their job.

Toners -CLINIQUE -Clarifying Lotion #2

I had the same experience when I first tried this product - thought I was deceived and received a bottle of liquor instead.
But apparently not and I am just going to continue using it along with other camomile toner, that is more moisturizing.
Since I read it actually helps with oily skin, I will give it a try!
I don't know if I would buy it again yet since I just started using it.
