LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS ! It makes my skin feel like skin, not foundation. It helps hold my makeup without making it looking cakey. It feels so nice on my skin and the puff that it comes with is great for the application. LOVE IT. :)
I use this sunscreen as my foundation primer. It's slightly tinted, well to me at least, and once applied it does cover up some problem areas. This product has a few downfalls. It leaves you with oily-looking skin, making your face look extremely shiny, which is not pretty at all. It comes off with sweat, once you're in a humid area, it will start looking absolutely disgusting. It will streak, smear and make you look like a complete mess. But wearing this as a primer, is OK i guess, the SPF is fairly high, which is great because i have fair skin and burn VERY VERY easily. I wouldn't recommend this to people with dry skin because it isn't very moisturizing and will flake alot on dry areas.
Powder -Clinique - Perfectly Real Compact Powder Foundation

This foundation is superb! I wear it over Clinique's sunscreen. It applies extremely easy and is long-wearing. It doesn't cover up everything though, but it gives you a natural look. It eliminates all shine if you wear if over a liquid foundation and leaves you with a soft and smooth matte finish. It's not long-wearing though, it does come off on oily skin, so if you have oily skin, i recommend you use blotting paper and reapplying this throughout the day. It does have an odd smell to it, but goes away once it's on your face. Overall this pressed powder foundation is great for shine-control leaving you with a matte finish.
This mascara is one of the better mascaras out there. It doesn't leave clumps, really makes your eyes standout and is extremely easy to apply. It glides on smoothly onto my lashes and doesn't smudge. It's also water-proof and doesn't irritate my eyes. :-) If only they made more colors like blue and purple.
This mascara didn't turn out to be what i had anticipated. It left behind the biggest clumps, has the weirdest scent and doesn't really have an impact on my lashes except make them look all clumpy. It doesn't apply smoothy and takes alot of effort to get even coats of it.
I have these in 03 Knockout Nude, 10 Air Kiss and 11 Sugar-Plum. These lip glosses are good, but not great. The lighter shades don't tend to really show any color once applied, but just leave a glossy look. The darker shades tend to show up more. These do leave an extremely sticky feeling after, and i hate it especially on those windy days, where your hair's blowing around everywhere and stink onto your lips. It's horrible D: In terms of the color selection, they're good but it would be better if the lighter colors would apply better.
Eye Makeup Remover -Clinique - Take The Day Off Eye Makeup Remover

This eye makeup remover works great in water-proof mascara, eye-shadow and water-proof eyeliner. They all come off in about 2 gentle swipes. The formula was very gentle around my eye area and also very soothing at the same time. With this makeup remover, you only need to use a little, and it can take off everything. It does leave a residue behind, which is why i rinse my eyes with cool water after. It does not sting my eye if it gets in it and does not irritate the delicate eye area at all. :-)
I have been using this product for a while now. I line my top lid with this, and the application brush makes it super easy to create the cat eye look. :-) It's very black and dramatic. It does stay on for ages, and doesn't flake or fade overtime unlike some other liquid liners. The only downfall i guess is the fact that it does tend to smudge in humid conditions or if you have oily eyelids, and the application brush can be easily damaged. Mine started wobbling around and the hairs on the brush are starting to poke out. Bottom line: Good product, stays on, easy application.
This product is probably one of the best foundations. I bought this because i needed heavier overage because of those nasty acne scars that take ages to disappear. When i put this on, it covers pretty much everything.Scars, uneven skintone and redness. It definitetly lives up to its name. It doesn't make me break out at all, and I have acne-prone skin. I'm not sure about the feeling after though. Although it doesn't exactly feel heavy on my face or anything, when I touch my face it feels sticky and slimy, even if you put powder over it. It also isn't waterproof, which is a downfall. I went clubbing wearing this and by the end of the night, i had patches of wear it had come off. Another con is that it has a shiny finish, and it comes off on your clothes, or maybe that's just me. For a foundation to have an SPF of 11 is pretty good, but I also wear Clinique's City Block Sheer sunscreen underneath it. It can be used as a primer and has an SPF of 25. This foundation can be pretty thick though, the lady at the counter suggested that I mix it with a bit of a moisturiser before application to avoid any tugging. All you need is just 1/3 of the mixture to be moisuturiser and it blends like a dream. :-) Because it's not waterproof it does come off in humid conditions. I was applying this on a hot day and was sweating just a little on my face. While applying it, it came right off on those areas. So the bottom line: Clinique Continuous Coverage offers amazing coverage, it could possibly be the best foundation out there if it was waterproof and had a matte finish. Hopefully Clinique will improve this product in the future. Goodluck guys! :-)
