Mascara -Clinique - Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara

Ok, I usually rely on gift with purchase and use the
house brand mascara forever and a day. When I
received Clinique's Chubby Lash mascara, I was
impressed from the very first application. I like the brush it is large and full of bristles. I have purchased it and plan to make it my go to mascara. The only complaint I have is I prefer a black brown mascara I purchased the Ebony, not my first choice but the
product goes on well and the brush helps to separate the lashes. Really love this mascara for me it does not smear and looks great at the end of my day.

These products seemed very harsh, I wouldn't say my skin is overly sensitive, but it reacted badly to these products. It stripped my tan (natural) away from parts of my face, leaving me with a very uneven skin tone. Previously I had noticed my bathroom towels were bleached but couldn't work out why - maybe it was due to these products. However, Clinique was very understanding and they sent me full sized products from another range that did work much better for me, so I can only praise their customer service.


Skincare - Face -Clinique - Even Better Essence Lotion

I absolutely love this product; it's been a game-changer for me. Even though what it does might seem very basic/small, it lays a strong foundation for the rest of my routine. I have very oily skin and I've struggled with finding a good cleanser. 'Gentle' cleansers don't do a thing for me while those targeted at oily skin are very drying/stripping. I've settled for something in between but my skin still feels parched /tight after cleansing. That's where the essence comes in. It's so light-weight, yet completely quenches my skin. I've tried other essences, event the SKII essence, and I can honestly say nothing came close in my experience. Most just felt like I was washing my face again. The Clinique essense hydrates and makes my moisturizer absorb better. After I wash my face I find my self rushing to dab this on.

I used to love this moisturizer and repurchased it multiple times. It felt luxurious and did a great job moisturizing my combination skin and flakey dry patches without making my skin too greasy. I also found it performed great under make up.

However, the last tube I purchased didn't agree with my skin. I'm not sure if they changed the formula since my last tub or if my skin just grew sensitive to it but it made my skin unbearably itchy. Even after discontinuing use, the itching took a few days to disappear. I used to love this product but it just doesn't work for me anymore.

Liquid -Clinique - Beyond Perfecting Foundation & Concealer

I got a deluxe sample at Ulta and I love this foundation. I prefer a full coverage look and this melts right into your skin. It blends beautifully and just gives a pretty look. It's also long lasting and takes a really long time to wear off. I've actually realized I've been skipping concealer bc it's already part of the product and I just add an additional dab over my foundation. No spf, :(but I'm not taking a point off for that). Really good stuff!

This contains aloe. Sometimes I am sensitive to aloe but this does not irritate my skin at all. Extremelly hydrating without greasyness. Good for priming before makeup. It's a gel-type moisturizer. I like to use this immediately after I have exfoliate my face. Very good for smoothing the skin.I find that it improves my texture. Does not break me out (I have oily-combo skin). Skin feels very soft after one use.

I love this!! Perfect for travel. I've used the oil also and both work great. A little of this works great. Will last forever. I do a 8 step skin care routine so I use a gel cleanser right after this then an exfoliate.

Best makeup remover ever. You only need to massage a tiny bit onto your skin, and your makeup is ready to be washed off. It doesn't hurt my eyes, doesn't harm my lashes, and my skin feels so soft after using it. I definitely only use it for removing makeup though, and would definitely suggest a lighter cleanser if you're not wearing makeup.

I have very dry skin that sometimes gets so dry and streched it starts to itch. I had an odd experience with this mask. It felt great on the skin and really made me feel instantly hydrated.
But then, 12 or 24 hours later my skin still feels plump to the tuch but it actually itches like it's super dry. I think its the sillicon that creates a "fake" feeling of moisture without actually helping with dryness. It didn't break me out, luckily, but a layer of sillicone on my skin isn't exactly what I look for in a mask.
Overall there are better masks out there. There are even better clinique masks.

I don't know why i hate this so much. It has to be the consistency. It's like plunging my fingers into a tub of lard and spreading that over my face. After decades of having really oily skin that consistency just turns my stomach. I now have dry skin so that consistency should be soothing but it's just a visceral thing. This does remove makeup and it is bland and unscented but I much prefer cleansing oils or best yet a cleanser that could do the job in place of this. It is a good value and to all those who love the feeling of this enjoy but for me I can't go it.

My skin is a finicky little bitch when it comes to foundations. Sucks them up, spits them off, cries like a bipolar teenager... I want to slap her, but (sigh).. she's mine, so I must deal. Imagine my surprise when Clinique comes up with some...lithium(?)...that manages to appease her!

This is a creamy, easy-to-blend, immensely-buildable high quality foundation. If you consider this light coverage, my guess is you are using a BB or a brush. I highly suggest fingers. I start with a generous amount and just slap it on (no primer). Two minutes later, I've got leave-the-house-ready medium plus coverage. A second no-fuss layer gives me very close to full--without a sign of cake. Finish is satin on my dry skin. Very oily people, don't go here. You will be sorry--'welcome. Oily/combo: Use your fave primer--do what you do--prolly be fine. VERY dry: 1) shake the bottle each time 2) Do what you do, then apply one light-medium layer and just leave it, and accept medium coverage (fingers!).

This has it's faults: It will transfer when rubbed (I use with no powder). It is neutral, not beneficial, for lines IMO--especially over time. Finish is very good, but not fabulous if you have textural issues or bumps (It is a thick foundation and if you layer a lot, it will look thick). And the SHADES! Ugh! Dear Clinique, the world does not need 50 shades of MEDIUM foundation! We need more light and dark shades. K? Thnx, morons! (I am about an NW13 and the lightest shade is still too dark for me.)

Why do I give this 5 stars? I have hunted for years for a foundation that is even remotely wearable for my high-maintenance skin. The combination of coverage and ease-of-use and dry-skin-friendly makes this a semi-unicorn of sorts for me. I have tried maybe 100 foundations (high to low end) and I'd put this in the top five--maybe top three. Bonus points for affordable price point...

This is a liquidy gel water/essence. Comes in a tall bottle. Fragrance free. It looked like it would pour right out of the bottle but you have to give it a minute or two and it will ooze out. Loved playing with it but unfortunately the essence stung my face each time I used it. Lovely idea for light moisture though. I am bummed it didn't work for me.

I liked this cleanser--scent, lather, tube, the works. But it made my skin dry. I have slightly combo skin in the summer and this dried my skin out. I even consulted with clinique online and they told me this was too much for my skin type so obviously not for all skin types like Beautypedia reported. More for combination and oily types but it's gentle enough if you use heavy moisturizers after for a couple of times. It's a really nice cleanser but I will be moving on. Going to try the sonic cleanser next.
