Treatments (Eye) -CLINIQUE -All About Eyes Serum De-Puffing Eye Massage

on 10/5/2018 1:31:00 PM

I bought this product twice, so I used it for almost a year and I am sure about the results now. It helps a bit with the puffiness but not with black circles, at least with me. It keeps the skin under the eyes smooth and ready to concealer. I don't think it has any effect on small wrinkles, it hydrates but it is not a very rich texture. I have tried a lot of eye products and I can say that this one is a bit above average but don't expect too much.

Lipstick -CLINIQUE -Almost Lipstick - Black Honey

The colour is nice for fall/winter, too dark otherwise (on my fair skin), but my main problem with it is that the formula dries out my already-dehydrated lips.

Fragrances -CLINIQUE -Women's Aromatics In Black Eau de Parfum

on 10/4/2018 5:48:00 PM

foto

I sampled Aromatics in White and Black today. Neither of them really knocked me out, although they’re well-done enough and certainly not terrible. The original Aromatics is an instantly recognizable masterpiece; its flankers are not.

Aromatics in Black reminds me of Tom Ford Black Orchid, which makes me violently ill. Thankfully AIB isn’t nearly as suffocating, but it is a dense, dark, leathery jasmine-orchid brew. The flowers in this don’t have the slightest hint of dirtiness or fecal notes, but the composition suffers from that weird chemical pong you get with Bath & Body Works products.

Again— it’s not terrible at all, and many people would like this. For me, having grown up with classic fragrances with very distinctive note profiles, AIB feels boring and derivative. But at least it isn’t some sugary dumbed-down flanker. Clinique clearly made an effort to be daring and adult with this one.

Fragrances -CLINIQUE -Aromatics In White Women's Eau de Parfum

As an ardent lover of the original Aromatics, I found both the White and the Black disappointing, though not terrible. Aromatics in White smells like a crisper version of many of the rose-based chypres of the ‘70s (in particular, it’s very similar to Coriandre by Jean Couturier).

It’s a bit soapy and high-pitched, too, like Happy— i think massive amounts of laundry musk is how Clinique conveys that a fragrance is “modern.” My nose really dislikes those sharp window-cleaner notes:

I give Clinique credit here for making a flanker fragrance that isn’t completely dumbed down (and does bear a bit of the same vintagey “spirit” as its parent). However, I don’t love Aromatics in White. It’s a bit boring and derivative.

Cleansers -CLINIQUE -Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

Meh. It's okay? I don't feel like it does the greatest job getting all my makeup off so it takes a bit of effort. But my skin feels nice after.

Loose Powders -CLINIQUE -Blended Face Powder and Brush (loose powder)

on 10/3/2018 6:34:00 AM

This powder is pretty decent. It's not ideal for oil control, but gives a nice finish overall. If you use too much it can give a powder-y look, but if used sparingly the finish is quite nice. Plus, there's a generous amount of product for the money. The brush is sort of pointless though.

Treatments (Eye) -CLINIQUE -Pep-Start Eye Cream

on 10/2/2018 3:03:00 PM

It is an average eye cream. It keeps the skin around the eyes confortable, if you use a concealer it also helps to have a better finishing. I didn't notice any improvement in puffiness or black cicles... I might buy it again because it is cheap and helps to moisturize the skin, but it is not a great product.

Lipstick -CLINIQUE -Dramatically Different Lipstick Shaping Lip Colour

on 10/1/2018 11:11:00 AM

I was a little concerned when I heard that Clinique was revamping their lipsticks, especially when I heard it was going to be one with a core. It often seems that companies go all in on these “revolutionary” formulas to very poor effect, but this stuff is so great. This is lipstick. It’s good old fashioned, nothing matte or crazy, nothing outré, lipstick. It’s a great tube of lipstick that feels incredibly comfortable, like absurdly comfortable, with weightless color and constant moisturization. It is very slick stuff, but it’s not smeary, and there’s no taste or scent (yay!). The pigment level is decent - most are sheerish in the way we expect Clinique lipsticks to be, but there is good color coverage across the three I got and they don’t go on patchy despite the core. The color goes on smoothly and easily and wears down well over two to four hours. I love Pat McGrath’s lipsticks for their bold pigment and gorgeous colors, but those lipsticks need babying during application (at least on my drier lips and against my very pale skin). This is the flip side to that - wearable, comfortable, and easy.

They kept the classic silver tube but it feels a little lighter and cheaper. The bullet itself comes to a very pointed point that extends slightly down into the body of the bullet, presumably for lining purposes. I never use it that way and look forward to it wearing itself down, but it’s not incredibly annoying. I’ve purchased three and might purchase more. The Macy’s I bought these at had the world’s worst tester unit in which the fluting on the tubes kept getting sort of stuck in the little wells and there was little indication of what color was in the tube. The red choices seem to lean toward the very modern bright and pinker end of the spectrum.

Bamboo Pink - grey pink with a touch of lavender and silver
Berry Freeze - deep berry rose
Tenderheart - terra-cotta beige (this seems to have less grey than I remember Tenderheart having, but it’s not an egregious update)

Foundations -CLINIQUE -Stay Matte

If you use the right primer/moisturizer underneath, this stuff really doesn't keep you matte. You might have a little shine after the 5 hour mark, but it's like a dewy shine, nothing to dramatic. Finally a foundation that's not too expensive that can control my oily beast of a T-zone.

After a mountain of recommendations I had to give this a try and wow - mind blown. Easy to use, doesn't dry or flake and it delivers genuine, gorgeous long-lashes. Fantastic.

Lipstick -CLINIQUE -Almost Lipstick - Black Honey

on 9/29/2018 4:42:00 AM

I got this as a sample from Sephora. I was excited to try because I heard some many great reviews about this almost-lipstick. I really like the color. It's like a black cherry color, when applied it goes on sheer. One of the things I did notice is that it settles in the lines of my lips, it looks terrible when my lips are dry. I have to exfoliate before wearing this. One good thing is that it's not drying, it seems to be emollient (think that's the idea being from Clinique). I do feel it to be a little to waxy. I may try it on again when my lips are nice and smooth and see how it is. I do not like it smell of this lipstick, it reminds me of those cheap wax crayons.

Whether I want a subtle nude brow-bone highlight or a more dramatic, intense brown shadow, this quad helps me score a sexy vibe without ruling out the essence of a “natural” look. Earthy brown hues and a mirrors palette make it portable and applicable anywhere! Love it love it love it! Perfect for my everyday Eye!
