Liquid -CLINIQUE -Even Better Refresh Hydrating and Repairing Makeup

I have to say this is my new favorite. I saw this advertised in a magazine and it piqued my interest. I have never been able to find a good match from Clinique in their foundations, so I did not have high expectations. LOW and behold after visiting two Clinique counters, the first only had 5 shades because they did not get all of their shipment...boo Dillards....Macy's had every shade! Great counter girl matched me with #1 Flax. Perfect color loved it. It wears extremely well. I have tried it warmed in hands, with a buff brush, and with a sponge. It looks great any which way! I do like to sheer this down a little as it is truly full coverage. I also like it with a little primer, my favorite FAB Coconut Skin Smoothie Priming Moisturizer. Overall this is a winner, hands down! I definitely recommend this! I even called my sister to let her know. Also right now Clinique online is having a 25% sale with free shipping...you can't go wrong there :)


Liquid -CLINIQUE -Redness Solutions Makeup SPF 15 with Probiotic Technology

I don't understand the negative reviews of this foundation! I'm on my way out the door to buy a second bottle and decided to check MUA, just for kicks—so glad I didn't check before! This is a moisturizing, light coverage foundation that disappears into my skin. The color match is perfect (I'm 04). It evens tone and makes my mildly red skin look super natural and flawless. I use fingers instead of a brush for application (tried both, but prefer fingers). A little goes a long way (I just emulsify between my fingers and tap it on). The best thing is how not-foundationy this stuff looks. Not sure about how long the wear actually lasts, but then, I don't use powder. That would probably help. I love the packaging, simple and hygienic. Highly recommend.

Mascara -CLINIQUE -ClinqueFit Workout 24-Hour Mascara

on 3/17/2019 2:04:00 PM

The wand is super skinny and grips lashes during application which I really like. It is a tubing mascara which is also my preferred type of mascara. If worn on my upper lashes only, all is right in the world. But, if I apply to both upper and lower lashes it flakes like nobody’s business. So, upper lashes only for me when using this mascara. I only wish this brand was cruelty-free. There are so few options for cruelty free mascaras and some are not easily accessible here in Canada. 😓 I really want to get my hands on the No7 one in the gold tube everyone raves about. In the meantime, I will repurchase until I find a better, cruelty free option.

Lipstick -CLINIQUE -Dramatically Different Lipstick Shaping Lip Colour

I just discovered this lipstick on recommendation from a salesperson at Lord and Taylor. I love it. My lips were dry and chapped and putting this product on made them feel immediately better. I purchased #26 Vintage which is a basic rose color that looks nice with my dark hair and eyes and pale skin. I found it to be very comfortable and smooth and it faded to a nice stain. I'm looking forward to getting more colors in this line. Highly recommend

Moisturizers -CLINIQUE -Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+

foto

This works well as a makeup base before applying the clinique even better anti-pollution spf40. However over the course of the day, my skin gets oilier and makeup starts to breakdown. For reference i have slightly oily skin with dry flakes(due to tretinoin use). Nonetheless this moisturizer did not give me breakouts (unlike the moisture surge range). Might be suitable for drier skin types.

Liquid -CLINIQUE -Even Better Refresh Hydrating and Repairing Makeup

Oh dear, I really wasn’t impressed with this. I have been suffering with dry cheeks and mild rosacea so I have been looking at new foundations as I need a little more coverage now. I tested the shade Alabaster which was quite a good match for my fair skin. Upon application I mentioned to the Clinique assistant that my dry patches were super visible, she said that would be the case with all foundations (not true). This felt very sticky going on, too wet and never seemed to fully dry. A few hours later it still felt tacky, this would definitely transfer to clothing etc. The consistency was way too thick for me and also made my skin feel itchy (this hasn’t happened to me in years). Looks like I will just stick with Estée Lauder Double Wear Light if I want a foundation with higher coverage.

Blush -CLINIQUE -Cheek Pop Blush - Nude Pop

on 3/16/2019 4:34:00 PM

I have several of these Clinique Cheek Pop blushes but this is by far my favorite shade. It's this gorgeous slightly shimmery, slightly pinky nude beige shade that looks so amazingly natural and glowy at the same time. I have many many blushes but this is one of the few that I use on a regular basis. As with other Clinique Cheek Pop blushes it can be a bit hard when you first start using it. You have to really dig your brush in but once you get past the top layer or two it becomes much easier to use. The packaging is very pretty and chic I think, and I like that it comes in this cute little compact.

Overall, this blush is just sheer perfection and I'd highly reccomend it, especially to those with very fair skin. I even use it as a light eyeshadow wash sometimes. I'm halfway through mine and would definitely repurchase. LOVE!!!!

Sunscreen -CLINIQUE -Sheer City Block SPF 25

on 3/15/2019 3:04:00 PM

foto

Clinique Sheer City Block spf25 is fantastic! My skin is dry and sensitive. I am in my mid-60's, with type 1 rosacea on my cheekbone areas. This sunscreen has a very light tint and is a totally mineral facial sunscreen. I use this over my skincare, a pea-size amount covers my face and neck. Emulsify between fingers, before patting on the face and neck. Wait a few seconds, then apply foundation primer, then foundation. Some reviews said that this product is oily. However, if you have dry skin, this is perfect! Since this is a mineral only sunscreen, it does not irritate my rosacea. The light tint prevents it from looking white or ashy. I highly recommend this facial sunscreen!

Cleansers -CLINIQUE -Liquid Facial Soap - Mild

on 3/14/2019 2:06:00 PM

I love this facewash so much. It’s like I’ve finally found my lifelong partner. After suffering from severe acne for so long, I’ve finally found the courage to accept my skin. It has come a long way. From being covered with irritated cysts and pustules all over my face, my face has calmed down tremendously and my breakouts reduced. And I’ve only been using it for one week! How can a cleanser not specifically designed to clear acne, drastically improved mine?

I do use a prescription acne medication called differin. It does work, but my skin was still irritated and breaking out slightly. However, the addition of the cleanser gave that push towards clearer and cleaner skin.

I’ve tried gentle cleansers that don’t irritate my skin, but doesn’t cleanse effectively. I’ve tried acne cleansers that cleanse my skin, but irritated my skin crazily. The clinique mild facial soap not only made my skin free of unwanted excess sebum and impurities, but it does so without irritating and reddening my highly sensitive skin!

Overview of the product in its physical form:

It’s a transparent gel-like texture that leathers adequately when rubbed between wet hands. A small amount is sufficient to cleanse the whole face, so it lasts for a really damn while, which makes it worth the money! The cleanser is available in small travel friendly tube packaging, but can also be found in a large pump bottle. It doesn’t have added fragrance, but it does have distinctive (chemically) smell.

Moisturizers -CLINIQUE -superdefense Daily Defense Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20

foto

I received a large sample of this in a GWP set. I used it up, but I would not purchase a full size. This has a nice texture, is unscented, and feels moisturizing. Aesthetically, I liked it a lot. However, it uses a chemical sunscreen (avobenzone 3% and octisalate 5%), and those are hit or miss for me. Sometimes they irritate me, sometimes they don't. In this case they did. I also don't like that this comes in a jar. This product isn't so thick that it couldn't come in a squeeze tube or pump--or, get this, an airless jar.

Moisturizers -CLINIQUE -Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief [DISCONTINUED]

foto

I was surprised to see this moisturizer was discontinued. I wasn't a huge fan, but it seemed popular enough! Anyway, this was just OK. I can see it being good for dehydrated skin, but it didn't do much for my dry skin. The gel-cream texture was pleasant enough, and I liked that it was unscented. But I need a richer moisturizer. I also don't like that it came in a jar--the formula would have lent itself well to a squeeze tube or pump, so there was no excuse for the unhygienic packaging. I used up my deluxe sample, but I would not purchase a full size of this even if I could.


Mascara -CLINIQUE -High Impact Mascara

on 3/13/2019 3:06:00 PM

foto

I purchased this solely because it is one of the few remaining cosmetics brands offering black-brown mascara. For that reason it is great; a nice black-brown that doesn't look too severe as most black mascaras do. The brush is also nice and the formula has stayed fresh even after several weeks, but I am disappointed in the lack of length and volume. I don't get a "high impact" result with this, and will probably go back to L'oreal Voluminous after finishing this.

Masks -CLINIQUE -Acne Solutions Oil-Control Cleansing Mask

on 3/13/2019 10:17:00 AM

This is the holy grail for oily, acne prone skin! I have struggled with acne for years after my skin became very oily from being on the pill. This mask changes ALL of that! If I wear it for 5-10 minutes every morning, I do not get oily AT ALL and my skin has cleared up so quickly! I’ve struggled with acne for years and while I have been using the Clinique Acne Solutions line for about a year, I only recently started using this product. It is a miracle worker, if your acne is caused by excessive oil, you HAVE TO give this a shot. It has changed my life and I am beginning to feel confident in my skin again!

Liquid -CLINIQUE -Stay-Matte Oil-Free Makeup

on 3/12/2019 2:20:00 AM

foto

This is pretty good stuff... easy to blend, comfortable on the face, and lasts throughout the day. This matte finish is not cakey, it is natural looking. Also, I didn’t feel like I had to set this foundation with powder.

One con is the coverage of this foundation...most of my acne still shows through, so I have to do a lot of spot concealing. It did not seem to exacerbate my acne which I enjoy.

The shade range is pretty disappointing, but good thing this foundation is pretty sheer! This makes it slightly easier to find a match for your skin.

This is good if you’re looking for a comfortable light-medium coverage foundation. If my skin ever improves, I would love to just slap this on without any concealer on top! A girl can dream.

Moisturizers -CLINIQUE -Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly

on 3/9/2019 7:12:00 AM

I have been a long term user of the clinique dramatically different moisturising gel and thought I would try something new. It didn't damage my skin but it also did not help it in any way. Compared to the moisturising gel, this does not provide as much moisture. I would rather revert back to my moisturising gel rather than repurchase.
