Lipstick -Clinique -Colour Surge Bare Brilliance in Waterviolet

My #32 WaterViolet was my favorite of the Clinique Brand [Color Surge Bare Brilliance Lipstick]. I think I got it back in 2009. I ran out of it, but barely some left. I would like to buy another, but found out it costs $65 by one vendor outside of the Clinique Co. I was wondering what is the equivalent to this color. I did a cross ref, but it cut off the actual color. It said it is now "Butter..." something. So I am not sure of the name of that color. I loved the light mauvish sparkling smooth glide over {with a light tinted purplish color to it}. I wear it over some of my lipsticks of all colors, just to get it moisturized. It never gives me cracked lips like some lipsticks do, due to the chemicals that they use in it. Great product. If anyone knows the new name for his color, please post.


Cleansers -Clinique -Facial Soap for Oily Skin

I get a big sense of nostalgia about this oily bar soap from Clinique Bc it was my first high end skincare product I bought from the expensive department store in Macy's as a teenager with very oily skin & acne problems! & before this bar of soap from Clinique I was just using really harsh acne products from the drug stores! ! Garbage stuff like noxzema oxy 10 & clearasil
& immediately I noticed my skin clearing up Bc I finally realized I was allergic to fragrance in my skin care products! I remember when I first started using this bar soap It felt very cooling like noxzema but I didn't irritate my skin like noxzema did!
These past couple of years as a middle aged adult I tried using 2 bars of these soaps just to finish them off Bc I had bought them years ago most likely to get the free bonus gift 🎁! & I realized they weren't as minty as before Bc the menthol in them probably has exaporated away & a bar of this stuff last a good solid 8 months with2 x a day wasshing & I did find them really drying on my face! I think 💭 it's time o stop using soap for my skin

Cleansers -Clinique -Facial Soap Extra Mild

on 12/18/2017 1:58:00 PM

Omg 😲 I have had a long history with Clinique bar soaps! When I was a teenager I had first bought the oily skin version than started using their mild bar & finally I just tried their extra mild bar soap in a sample try me size a relative gave me Bc she didn't want it
But anyways this bar of soap was the least drying out of their 3 strengths! The oily bar was extremely drying & so was the mild bar! But this one seems more creamy while lathering! It seems more super fatted &therefore more gentle
It seems like to be a stronger version of dove soap! That's how I feel about it !
But now that I have finally tried all of these bars of soap from Clinique! It's really time to stop ✋🏻 using bar soaps on my face! Bc even though this extra mild bar soap was much gentler on my face it still felt a bit dry & tight afterwards! 👎🏻

Cleansers -Clinique -Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

It is just amaaaaaaaaaaazing, it removes makeup so so well and it is not oily. Will definitely purchase again.


BB Cream -Clinique -Moisture Surge CC Cream SPF 30

foto

This is the worst foundation I’ve ever tried out of all the cheapest and the most expensive ones. It doesn’t apply on my skin at all and looks patchy and creased all over. I tried it again and again and finally just gave up.


Cleansers -Clinique -Foaming Sonic Facial Soap

on 12/17/2017 2:04:00 PM

I received this cleanser from a bonus & I would never ever buy this! it's exactly the same as their pink rinse off foaming cleanser! Meaning it's really drying & feels exactly like using a bar of soap for washing your face! Positive points is that it's fragrance free & better suited for oily skin types!
I'm glad I got to try it out Bc yes it made my skin feel squeaky clean but it also dry me out too ! I only got it as a sample & would never buy this!


Cleansers -Clinique -Take the Day Off Cleansing Oil

on 12/16/2017 11:58:00 PM

foto

This is quick, effective and gentle. I'm currently on my second bottle of this and I love it. I have sensitive, acne prone, combination skin and rosacea, and this doesn't break me out or irritate my skin. It takes all of my makeup off (including eye makeup) and even removes waterproof sunscreen with just one cleanse. I apply this to dry skin and gently massage in until I can see the makeup and sunscreen dissolve. The cleanser applies like an oil but becomes a white, milky texture when water is added. Since it rinses cleanly, doesn't leave a residue and doesn't contain comedogenic ingredients (no actual oils), I don't bother doing a second cleanse. I only need 1 pump for my face (or 2 pumps for my face and décolletage) so one bottle lasts ages.


Cleansers -Clinique -Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam

on 12/16/2017 10:15:00 AM

I had bought so many bottles of this pump cleanser over 10 years ago when it first came out to the market & it was first called anti blemish & they eventually changed it to their acne solutions line I think the only reason I bought it was just to get the free bonus gift 🎁! Bc back then by just buying one bottle of this face wash was enough for the bonus but now you have to spend more money to qualify for the free gift
In the beginning of using this cleanser I really like it bc it was really easy to use & my skin felt really clean & I have very oily skin especially on my t zone
But recently I'm using a smaller size of this from their starter kit & im finding out that this cleanser is really drying on my face! Maybe Bc it's winter now but I won't be rebuying it!

Eye Shadow -Clinique -All About Shadow Quad - Pink Chocolate

foto

I have purchaced this particular color eyeshadow quad from Clinique several times because I think it’s a super pretty combination! I feel like I can’t ever go wrong following the placement suggestion that is included in the quad compact and the colors blend well. The pink pan has some fine shimmer to it but the shimmer particles stay put and makes the pink pop. The lighter brown shade is sheer but can be built up and blends nicely into the pink without cancelling out the pink.
I like that Clinique changed thr compact that it has a hinged top instead of the slide-out and added a mirror, but I may be confusing this with the single shades... the last pink chocolate quad I got was 6 years ago so I forget... I keep these around waaay past the suggested timeframe for an es because they never have changed and hardened like some es brands / es I’ve had in the past.

Liquid -Clinique -BIY Blend It Yourself Pigment Drops

on 12/15/2017 5:56:00 PM

foto

Ok so i only came around to trying this because it was on a 50% sale at sears (since the store is closing). Read a bit about it, then tried it the next morning. What i did was i mixed 1 pea sized dollop of my simple skin moisturizer with 2 drops of this BIY thingy. Then i rubbed it in with my fingers, the way i would a moisturizer. It gave me about low medium coverage which i personally prefer, and that concoction gave me a natural matte finish.
I wore it all day to test it out (i didnt set or anything coz i wanted to know how it held up on it’s own). At the 6 hour mark it still looks good, starting to get a tad shiny on my nose which is totally normal (i have normal- slightly oily tzone skin). Took it off at around 12 hour mark still looking decent, it worn off nicely, nothing splotchy or breaking up. My face didnt get any greasier or dryer. So, :
Pros:
I love the natural finish and how light it feels, literally feels like i only put on moisturizer. Perfect for summer/lazy days.
The tiny bottle and how easy it blends with fingers will make it useful for traveling.
Doesnt break me out.
It doesnt transfer too much. (I was blowing my nose constantly but there was still remnants on my nose hiding the redness.

Cons:
Price. Now i got this on a really good deal but when i run out, im not gonna repurchase Coz for CAD $44, i’ll only be getting 10ml of product which brings me to my next point.
I dont like that im only getting 10ml of product. Now i know they say it’s pigment or whatever but still, 10mls?really? For that price? *cries*
Not enough shade variety (IMO). I got 115 which when not mixed with anything looked hella orange, when mixed with my moisturizer it looked about the same as MUFE ultra hd shade y245.


I would recommend getting it while it’s on sale tho, super handy for traveling and it’s a good product.

Eyeliner -Clinique -Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen

on 12/15/2017 9:42:00 AM

So, in my search for an HG eyeliner, I quickly realized just how hard it can be to get a solid cat eye. Yes...yes, I had seen the memes but I had only previously used cheap drugstore eyeliners and figured that it wasn't me...it was the cheap products to blame! I got Kat Von D's Inked liner which was really pigmented but on my oily lids a bit hard to control at times. Once it started running dry I knew I wasn't going to repurchase and read the reviews on this one.
I don't understand what they did different...it looks the same but it is so much easier to manage!! I love very minimal, delicate cat eyes that give you a subtle look and I could very easily draw it one with this one! It is not necessarily as pigmented as the Kat Von D one but tbh, I can at least layer this one on (that's right...LAYER it! I was courageous enough to go back after I had achieved that elusive, perfect swoop because it was just that easy) to get a darker line. Also, I can go back in and add the Kat Von D to areas that I'd like to be a big more pigmented.
Honestly, I don't think I will be looking for any other eyeliners. This one meets all the needs and I'd rather give up a bit on pigmentation in order to have it be easier to manage. Nice job, Clinique!

Lips -Clinique -Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm

on 12/15/2017 1:36:00 AM

foto

I have Mightiest Maraschino, a lovely strawberry cherry red that looks great on fair skin tones, especially Snow White types.

The formula feels creamy with good coverage and a youthful satin shine. Stains the lips deep pink. Feels moisturising but it actually makes my normally ok lips feel tight and dry. Waxy crayon scent, smells like cheap makeup.

Clinique promote this as being cool to reapply without a mirror but in a colour like this trust me, you need a mirror or you will get an uneven lipline. I never wear this shade straight from the tube the colour slips and smears everywhere. On my chin, coffee cups, cellphone. So I blot after application with a tissue to get a matt stain. Its very pretty this way and stays put.




Toners -Clinique -Clarifying Lotion #2

on 12/14/2017 2:03:00 PM

foto

I have never actually bought this toner before I have this in the sample try me sizes from bonuses & recently a relative gave me some more Bc she didn't want them!
I don't hink 💭 this is a good toner to be using Bc it has so much alcohol in it & stupid menthol which irritates the skin! I personally have a very oily skin type & have only used this toner occasionally to clean up my t zone in between washings & during the day especially in the summer time! I don't think this stuff actually exfoliates anything Bc I has no salicyclic acid in it!
& I love ❤️ the commentary from a reviewer who said Clinique toners are like junk food! LOL!


Cleansers -Clinique -Liquid Facial Soap - Mild

on 12/14/2017 12:55:00 PM

I really love Clinique skincare products Bc they are fragrance free & im very allergic to all perfumed products on my skin! & I have a very oily skin type especially on my t zone! & this face cleanser really works well for me! Though Clinique targets this for normal dry combinations normal skin it's better suited for oily combo skin types Bc I can definitely see this being kinda drying for my parts of my face which are drier Bc as the Paula skin expert lady said it does have a lot of salt listed on top of
The ingredients list!
The thing I love ❤️most about this face cleanser is the clean fresh chamomile scent it has! It reminds me of their discontinued skin texture lotion from years ago when they realized the yellow lotion was not a good choice for oily skin types & this mild version doesn't have menthol like the oily one! & this liquid mild soap is definitely much better than their all their bars of soaps! Seriously who still recommends using bar soap for their faces!


Mascara -Clinique -High Impact Mascara

on 12/14/2017 6:19:00 AM

I've been using this for a while now, repurchased a few times. Very happy with the way it goes on, doesn't clump the lashes, gives natural definition, volume, separation and a bit of length. I'm quite lucky with my lashes in that they don't need much extra help and naturally curl upwards, so I only need a mascara to do a good job at adding colour (I'm naturally blonde so they're usually light if I've not recently dyed them) and just giving some extra 'oomph'. I've also been buying the smaller 3.5 ml version and it's so much nicer to be able to use it up before it dries up! I've actually found that I prefer the formula once I'm about half-way through as at the start it can be just a tad too liquidy for my preference and a tad too clumpy at the end!
