Oooh sorry to be the first with a dissenting opinion but all these raves were really surprising to me. I cannot stand this product! I have had it for about six months now and I can't bring myself to use the tub up. You know a product is bad when you have to force yourself to use it up so as not to be wasteful.
I found that this product did not sink into my skin, it just balled up on …

Another Clinique product that I like, will wonders ever cease?! I recently had a make over using the double dazzle duo, with sugarberry and stormcloud to highlight. Wow what a combination! I have light blue eyes and this combination made them look amazing. Surprisingly using so many colours did not look overdone, it just enhanced my eyes and complemented my other make up. These wore well …Read more

Foundations - CLARINS - Smart Stick Foundation

My favourite foundation at the moment and I'm shocked to find that it is from Clarins. Linen 01 is actually a good colour match for me as well as adequately concealing the redness in my cheeks. It is long wearing and so easy to apply. I love stick foundations if only for the ease of application. It can show up some dry areas but even my Bobbi Brown moisutre rich foundation does that, so you …Read more

Smearing and spiky lashes. Aren't these the two major no-nos with mascara! Well it seems that this is all this product has to offer me (and others by the sound of it).

Mascara - Estée Lauder - Illusionist Mascara

I tried this side-by-side with L'oreal's Voluminous waterproof and the Illusionist suffered from the comparison. I found that the voluminous offered more volume, and surprisingly, more curl. The illusionist really did nothing for my eyes.

A nice every day mascara for those who want a natural look. This does the job much better than Clinique's naturally glossy.
I agree with others that it is very wet and takes a long time to dry, but at least my eyelashes aren't brittle after use.
I think you can find the same thing in L'oreal's range for less money, but I do like using the GWP tubes I receive.

Mascara - Estée Lauder - Pure Velvet Mascara [DISCONTINUED]

One of my favourite mascaras. This does it all: lengthens, adds volume and holds curl. This is about as dramtic as I like my mascara. It doesn't clump which is rare for volumising mascaras. I did find that it can smudge a little as the day/night wears on and I find the brush a little unweildy on the lower lashes.

Mascara - CLINIQUE - Naturally Glossy Mascara

The worst mascara I have ever used. This makes my eyelashes very brittle and dead straight. I can't actually see what the point of it is, as it does not add anything to my overall look. It also smears; you would think for something so dry it would be the tiniest bit waterproof. I get lots of these in GWPs and I can't give them away.

I'm not a fan of Clinique, so this product really surprised me. The blue grey liner-shadow combination was really effective at highlighting my blue eyes. It did smudge slightly but that just added to the soft smokey effect I was trying to create. Gorgeous. My friend wants to buy one now so we will be hitting a Clinique counter soon and hopefully nabbing a GWP.
