Treatments (Face) - CLINIQUE - Pore Minimizer T-zone control ] [DISCONTINUED]

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/10/2011

This product does mattify my t-zone somewhat, but the effect is only marginally longer than not using anything at all. I purchased it a year ago, had a couple of tries and hated it. Since then I was advised to improve on my moisturizing because I was apparently not doing it enough, and this alone helped control my oil production better, making this product work a teeny tiny bit better. I …Read more

Treatments (Face) - CLINIQUE - Repairwear Laser Focus

Thanks to GWP, I had a couple of samples of this and could use them for several weeks. Since it was sample size, I tried it only on the fine lines on my forehead and around one eye (I wanted to be sure I'd see a difference).
This product filled my forehead with blackheads. Furthermore, I had to quickly discontinue the use around the eye, since it cause small red bumps to appear. I …

I got this in a GWP (btw, really smart to put one shade in a GWP, Clinique... everybody is Neutral in colour, right?). I tried applying with my fingers, a foundation flat brush and a sponge, and found out that for me fingers worked best, although giving the sheerest coverage. It is, however, quite buildable, I'd say to medium coverage, after that it looks like you have foundation on your …Read more

I have this in Mauve Berry and love it. The name is pretty fitting, it is a berry colour, not too dark. It's really soft and well pigmented, I don't have to go twice over the same place to deposit colour. It doesn't feel drying at all on my lips, and I have a tendency to have pretty chapped lips! Looks great by itself or with a hint of gloss on top. Because it is so soft, it does …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - Pure Elegance

This is a very pretty pink, with a beautiful golden pink shimmer, which makes it lively but not too much in-your-face bubblegum pink. Unfortunately, I picked up a pre-3free version of this (stupid me, I should have looked better), so I don't know if it's any different with newer formulas. Anyway, what I dislike about it is that it's so sheer. I still have VNL after 4 coats, and if …Read more

I purchased a big bottle (400 mL), which was good and bad: good because it gave me an opportunity to fully test it, bad because I was left with a lot of useless product when I decided it was not working for me. I used it over three months on my just short of shoulder-length hair. For reference, my hair is very straight (hardly needs conditioner, except to tame static electricity) and a bit oily …Read more

This is HG to me. I haven't tried UDPP or TSFI though so I can't compare, but the fact that it holds eyeshadows in place for more than ten hours without creasing or fading on my oily lids, independently of weather conditions makes me to not purchase anything else. I bought mine a year ago and it still has quite a lot of product left in it, you need the tiniest amount on each eye (less …Read more

Eye Shadow - CLINIQUE - Pair of Shades Eye Shadow Duo #25 (Bronze Satin & Ivory Bisque)

Love this duo. The ivory colour is softer than just using white for highlighting, and works wonderfully as a lid colour too. The brown is just the perfect crease colour for me and I use it all the time. The consistency is quite smooth, almost buttery. I got this with the old drawer packaging and didn't like that too much, but I see it has been changed, no opinion on the newer packaging yet …Read more

Jan/14/2011

Well the previous reviewer described the colour better than I could so I won't bother :P I do think that the glitter is golden, not silver, but it could be my eyes... I found the cream highlighter to be a bit crumbly, but usable if using my finger to apply the product. The highlighter is sheer and the powder colours are well pigmented, and very smooth, a bit of fallout but that's not a …Read more

Brows - The Body Shop - Brow and Eyeliner Kit

I have this product in no3, the darkest shades, and it fits my black brows very nicely! Not too ashy, not too reddish. I use a hint of the lightest colour mixed with a bit more of the darkest one (like one tap on the first, three taps on the second with an angled brush) to fill in some gaps and define the outer tip. It stays well on my combination skin all day long, even on warm summer days, not …Read more
