Lipstick -Clinique - Chubby Stick (all shades)

So I tried on 18 Plushest petal, and find the colour like a rosy nude. Its a very cute and shimmery colour but its quite sheer. I find the texture quite dry and not as moisturizing as I thought it would be based on the description. I find it kind of hard to use since it is very clumsy and big. But overall i can see myself using it more but wont repurchase. (Maybe another colour)

It really works! My dark spots are in a few days much lighter. I am very glad with this product. My skin looks more healthy. I easly break out but not by this product.

Update: It works but it dries out my skin

Cleansers -Clinique - Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

Good cleansing balm, but heavy for oily skin. I liked how well it removed makeup and the lovely texture is a pleasure to use. However, it's quite heavy and felt like it left a residue on my skin, and it made my eyes cloudy after trying to remove my heavy duty eye makeup. I love the Take the Day Off oil - no residue left on skin or in my eyes.

This cream feels incredible on the skin is silky smooth and absorbs quickly. Unfortunately by the end of the day my skin was actually drier than it would have been without. Big fail, returned it.

Eyeliner -Clinique - Cream shaper for eyes black diamond

Was going to complain about the underwhelming pigment, but just realized 101 Black Diamond that I bought isn't a jet black, it's supposed to have a "hint of silver pearl", so guess that's on me. I just applied it thinly to my waterlines/tried to tightline upper & lower.
It's probably more suited to make smudged smoky lines on lids. Point rounds down really fast.

Compared to the pens I have on hand (Milani liquid eye, liquid-like eye liner pencil, a mechanical pencil that seems to be discontinued, and a 10 year old MAC eye pencil in Coffee), I was underwhelmed for my purposes. I'll try to update on the longevity and waterproofness.

General note: I've heard that eyeliner pencils are one of those makeup items where brand & price tend to make very minimal difference, and I think that's true. I have one truly unusable eyeliner pencil that was fairly cheap (an old Isadora Colormatic - gonna try the lighter trick on that one), but they're mostly very similar.

Liquid -Clinique - Beyond Perfecting Foundation & Concealer

on 8/24/2017 11:42:00 PM

I love love love this foundation! I have oily skin with quite a bit of flakiness from acne issues.

This foundation doesn't really cling onto the dry patches on my skin and it somehow manages to keep my face moisturised half of the day, which is pretty good for a foundation that's somewhat dries to semi-matte.
This foundation is medium-full coverage, depending on the amount that you use on your face. You can just apply one dip to your entire face and that will be a good medium coverage!
Most importantly, it doesn't break me out! This foundation is made with non-comedogenic ingredients. I can always trust Clinique products as they rarely breaks me out.

SUMMARY
Pros
- doesn't cling onto dry patches
- buildable medium-full coverage
- doesn't break me out
- last the entire day
- minimum oxidation (just a little bit)

Cons
- a little transferrable
- the applicator cap isn't very hygienic

Treatments (Eye) -Clinique - All About Eyes Rich

on 8/24/2017 3:37:00 PM

Ive finished my first tub of Clinique Eye Cream. One tub took me around 5-6 months using it morning and nigh.

Pros: Moisturizing. Good for super dry skin. Doesnt break out on me. A little goes along the way. Keeps my eyes area moist and soft the whole day.

Cons: Does nothing on my dark circles and fine lines.

Note: Im still contemplating on buying the 2nd tub as it does nothing more than moisturizing which I think I can find a similar substitute at cheaper price.


Foundations -Clinique - beyond perfecting powder

Where are the reviews for this powder? I prefer a powder over a liquid since I have combination skin that is more oily than dry. This powder is very light and provides great coverage. I easily get a full workday with this and actually prefer how it looks once my natural oils come through. I have had no breakouts or clogging with this powder. I use a powder brush instead of the sponge it comes with and it covers beautifully. If you can find a shade that matches consider yourself lucky, I use golden neutral which is perfect for summer and hope I can find a match for the cooler months to come. Try this powder if you like powder foundations, it truly is a gem.

Liquid -Clinique - Even Better Makeup SPF 15

I'm not sure why people don't love this foundation?

I have been using Clinique Even Better Makeup SPF15 for many years, so many, I'm not sure when I started! It is one of the only foundations on the planet that doesn't cause breakouts and that has an SPF that my skin can tolerate. I cannot use anything with octrocrylene and it seems every brand is headed in that direction.

For me, this foundation provides a smooth coverage on the thicker side. Many times, I will mix it with Cover Girl BB cream to sort of lighten the foundation and it makes the foundation last a LONG time.

I have hazel eyes and brown/blonde hair with light olive skin. I use the neutral shade. In the summer, sometimes I mix it up and use golden neutral mixed with sunscreen or moisturizer. The shades can be tricky, so it is helpful to go to a counter or be prepared to possibly exchange the shade.

Liquid -Clinique - Even Better Glow Light Reflecting Makeup SPF 15

on 8/22/2017 6:45:00 PM

If you are a person who likes Even Better regular, but need a little more pizzazz to your finish, then I suggest you just use regular Even Better and spritz with Fix or some other dewy product, because this, IMO is no improvement on the original. This is a medium coverage, non-buildable, "wet" looking, cruddier finish version of the original. I swear I think they just added glycerin and watered it down. It has less coverage than the original, doesn't really set, and just doesn't look as good, IMO. It just looks "thick"--like in that old fashioned foundation kind of way.

A better version of this would be their Superbalanced Silk foundation. A fabulously buildable Satin finish high quality makeup. One of their best. This, I think, is one is of their worst. (And that's saying something--generally just not a fan of Clinique foundations!) I think they kidnapped some chemist from Chanel and locked him in their basement and forced him to come up with Superbalanced Silk!

If you want a medium coverage dewy foundation, may I recommend Bourjois Healthy Mix, Lancome Renergie lift, the Body Shop Moisturizing... Heck, just throw some moisturizer into your favorite non-dewy foundation and it would be better than this!

Dry skin, here. For reference.

Cleansers -Clinique - Facial Soap for Oily Skin

on 8/21/2017 10:07:00 PM

Best face soap I have ever used. I love soap, always have. Have always been searching for the best bar for my combination/oily skin. This is it. I have been using this for over a year and whenever I try to veer away from it, I break-out and regret the change. I come back to it and my skin clears up and looks radiant and glowing. I always get compliments on my skin. I wish they didn't test on animals though...that is the only downside to this soap.

Cleansers -Clinique - Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

foto

Definitely removes EVERYTHING like a dream. I usually use 3 cotton pads when I use Micellar water and 2 sheets of face wipes if I'm using makeup remover wipes. But with this, I just get the tiniest amount and gets rid of all my makeup! It feels weird the first time you apply it but you'll get used to it eventually. My skin feels smoother after I use this and it's not scented at all so that's a plus for me! The only Con is it's pricey. But a little goes a long way so a jar would probably last you a year or more depending on how much you're going to use it!


Liquid -Clinique - Beyond Perfecting Foundation & Concealer

I love this foundation, but I rarely use it all over my face all by itself. I use it as a concealer around my eyes and to cover up my melasma. Then I use the Beyond Perfecting Powder Foundation all over my face. This provides wonderful coverage, doesn't oxidize, doesn't shift all over my face and doesn't fade. As long as they make this - I'll buy it. My only concern is I think the large doe foot applicator is going to be a problem when the volume of foundation in the bottle gets low. Then again, maybe I'm wrong about that. And its going to take me forever to hit the bottom of this bottle as a little dab goes a looooooooooong way.

I can hardly believe these poor reviews, this stuff works a treat for me! To be fair, i do use a separate eye makeup remover and the product says right on the bottle not to use it on your eyes. I have oily skin so this can't be the only cleanser I use, its too rich for that. But it does break down my makeup and rinses clean off so I'm happy with it.
