Cleansers -Clinique -Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

I'm a difficult person to wow, but this stuff is truly amazing! It's actually the first ever thing that YouTube made me buy.
Recently I've watched Desi Perkins video where she was removing a very heavy black eye makeup using this balm. Definitely, the video wasn't showing everything from beginning till the end without cuts, but it made me wonder if this thing will be able to remove my mascara and eyeliner without leaving the traces of makeup. I went to Ulta and bought a travel size (6.50$ with taxes 0.5oz / 15ml).
OMG this stuff is HG! All my life I struggled with raccoon eyes in the mornings. Not fully raccoon, but some traces were always left, no matter how many products I've used to remove my eye makeup. My lashes were falling out from rubbing, but my makeup was staying on....
This balm:
- it removes my mascara and eyeliner trace free in 30 seconds;
- I don't need to rub it strong into my eyes, very gentle circular motion work perfectly;
- it doesn't leave a residue;
- doesn't dry out my skin;
- I don't need to use any other product to fully remove my makeup. I still go with my regular face wash all over the face afterward, and I use Clinique balm on my eyes only, since my face makeup is minimal.
- my eyes are very sensitive and I can use.

This stuff is amazing! try it you won't regret!
If you're planning to use it on your eyes only travel size is should be enough for 6 months before it will expire.

This thing is pricey if you see it just from the price point, BUT with the amount of product that you get and a little bit goes such a long way to clean stubborn yet wonderful makeup. No matter how many layers of products that I have on, cleaning it with this balm is such a joy. Usually I will be just putting 5 dots on my face and massage the balm thoroughly even to my eyes. Wipe it off with some tissue and as final check, I take a cotton pad and soak it in Bioderma Micellar Water. Then I wash my face, and voilaaaaa.... fresh face, ready for bed. Such an amazing product! I will definitely repurchase!


Moisturizers -Clinique -Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief

This really doesn't deliver a surge of moisture as the name suggests. If you like silicones or have oily skin, it might work for you. However, my combination-dry skin has never looked more dull. It doesn't make my face feel properly moisturised at all, even if I put a lot on. I wanted to like this - the feel of it is soothing and the pink gel is lovely - but it just doesn't relieve skin thirst at all.

Liquid -Clinique -BIY Blend It Yourself Pigment Drops

on 10/16/2017 8:49:00 PM

One star removed for the ridiculously small bottle!!! However, the product itself is magic! I purchased this in 110 which looked quite dark when I swatched it on my hand. Once blended in to my SPF 50+ moisturiser, it was an ivory shade on my skin. I put 3 drops of this into my Natio SPF 50+ moisturiser and only used my Beauty Blender to do a tiny bit of blending. I mostly applied it the same way I would apply moisturiser or sunscreen which is in sweeping motions using my hand. It completely transforms into the product you combine it with, but gives that wash of colour. 3 drops gave light/moderate cover when mixed with a high SPF moisturiser. The drops themselves are very watery in consistency, but you could see how pigmented they were. As I said earlier, the bottle is tiny enough to fit in the palm of your hand. It will be interesting to see how long it lasts. It retails in Australia for $55, so I was not impressed when I saw how much that actually brought me. The entire bottle is .34 ounces. Anyway, I will be repurchasing as it is such a versatile product.

I had to try this because of the hype around it - seemed like everyone else had tried it and so many have it as a favorite makeup remover. To me, this is not the best thing I've ever tried (which is the RealArt Perfect Cleansing Oil), but it works well.

This is a white balm with a texture very similar to coconut oil when it is in its non-liquid form. When you scoop some of this out, it also has the same consistency as coconut oil, and even smells similar, but weaker. However, this is much more effective at melting makeup, IMO, and rinses off much easier. When you rub this between your hands, it liquefies as it heats up. Then you just apply this n your dry face and rub it around till your makeup is dissolved, and then wash it off with water - it then turns into a milky substance, just as liquid oil cleansers. Then I always follow up with a foaming cleanser to remove the last traces of makeup and dirt

This is not my favorite cleanser because of the the jar packaging - I'm not into dipping my fingers in it twice, which is even worse if I already have dissolved makeup on my hands and suddenly notice that I used too little of the cleansing balm. I would like this to have a scooper-spoon or something, so I wouldn't need to dig around in it with my fingers. I would repurchase this, but only for the purpose of travel, when I want to have a cleanser with me that is not liquid. Otherwise, I prefer oil cleansers, and have already found one that is cheaper than Clinique's cleansers, which I find to be on the more expensive side. If I found another balm cleanser that was cheaper, I would probably buy that instead of the Clinique one

Otherwise, this does not aggravate my sensitive skin and doesn't dry me out

Tools -Clinique -Sonic system cleansing brush

on 10/16/2017 2:32:00 PM

This brush would probably work great on normal skin. I unfortunately have sensitive skin. I tried using it and SLOWLY worked up to 3x, then 4x, then 5x a week. When I finally got to nightly a few months later my skin started breaking out. I quit using it but the blemishes are still there! I thought maybe it wasn't this brush so I tried it again. I've been using it 1x a week for about three weeks and again I'm getting a few red cyst bumps under the surface of my skin right next to other breakouts.

The brush does leave my skin feeling clean. But it is harming my sensitive skin. I would not recommend this for anyone using retin-a, toners or other types of exfoliants.

Lipstick -Clinique -Pop Liquid Matte

This is for the shade Black Licorice Pop. The formula is more creamy than matte. I expect matte to be transfer resistant and long wearing. This is definitely NOT. The color is nice, but not exactly what I wanted. A deep plum that turns more of a fuschia on me. It bleeds and wears off unevenly. I have yet to find anything that wears like Wet & Wild liquid catsuit. Best formula EVER.

Mascara -Clinique -High Impact Lash Elevating Mascara

I think I'm in love with this mascara... I have stick straight lashes and have so many troubles finding the right mascara. The only favorite I really have is the Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara. But this comes pretty close. It keeps my lashes curled all day AND it makes my lashes look better than the Lash Sensational. It is also a bit easier to remove which is amazing!!
I wish it was a bit more transfer-proof because it sticks to my eyelids when they are a bit oily. But most mascaras do that to me.
So all in all it is an amazing mascara and if you, like me, have troubled straight lashes - give it a go!


Mascara -Clinique -High Impact Mascara

In a word, lackluster. This would be better described as a lash tint or lash darkener. Does not add length, does not add volume, very basic mascara. I would compare this to Maybelline Great Lash.

Masks -Clinique -Pore Refining Solutions Charcoal Mask

I don't like this face mask I feel it irritates my skin and leaves it very dry and red! I read good reviews on this and despite not having fragrance or alcohol it doesn't work well with my skin. It doesn't leave my skin poreles or smooth like many other masks I've tried. Too expensive for the results provided so I wouldn't repurchase!


Brows -Clinique -Brow Shaper

The packaging is super convenient, great, and very durable. The powder is great and very long lasting. I've had it for 2 years now and it still won't finish. I scraped and scraped but nothing is being done - so that's a good thing. However, the brushes are garbage. In the beginning, they're great and sturdy so you can get the brow powder on. But very quickly they almost spread out and can't be used. The annoying thing about the product itself is, it can't be used with any other brush because no other brush is as sturdy as the Clinique one it comes with to pick up the product. I hope I'm explaining this right. The product gets the job done, it will last you a very long time, and it's decently priced. It isn't a messy application either. If you mess up, you can just wipe away the powder with your fingers and it's done. No stain. The brushes should be better quickly since it's Clinique. The picture above has 1 brush but the one I got had 2. I like this product but I won't be purchasing it again. Mostly because I want to check out what else is out there to try out.

Cleansers -Clinique -Take the Day Off Cleansing Oil

Since my skin gets EXTRA dry during the fall/winter months, this cleanser is perfect! I never would have thought that an "oil" cleanser (more like a "glycerin" based cleanser) could keep my skin in such great shape. It also takes off all of my makeup (including mascara) with minimum effort. If you suffer from dry "winter" skin, please give this a try.

Mascara -Clinique -High Impact Lash Elevating Mascara

Worst mascara ever. It already starts when applying: the brush is way too big (long) as it covers my whole eye... as a consequence, the mascara ends up everywhere and I need to clean the exces with a cotton pad. The texture is pasty-result: sticky eyelashes and panda eyes through the day.
What it does: lifting, smudging, no volume, no length, no definition.
