I’ve always been a Clinique skincare girl. But since getting into make-up (like a year ago, ha!) I never really looked twice at them for pretty lipsticks, eyeshadows and blushes. I managed to scoop up a few of their eye pencils and maybe even a gloss here or there but I never had any crazy indulgences. It wasn’t until I heard about Nordstrom’s Trina Turk gift with purchase that made me want to scratch that Clinique itch a little more. I literally fleewww to Nordie’s here in Orlando.
Spend $25 and look at all of the fabulousness you get:
Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser (1.7 oz.)
Zero Gravity Repairwear Lift Firming Cream (0.5 oz.)
Lash Doubling Mascara (0.14 oz.)
Long Last Lipstick in Blush Coral
Bamboo Pink glosswear
Color Surge eye shadow/duo
silver lipstick case
…..how I ended up with that extra lipstick, I don’t know. But you don’t hear me complaining!
What did I purchase to snag those goodies?
The best lipgloss in the market, in my opinion? Clinique’s glosswear! Not lyin’. This is actually my third one and I LOVE the staying power of these babies here.
I know that many women of color may think that Clinique’s shadows and blushes are not brown girl friendly. I, too, thought the same thing for awhile so I thought I’d do a FOTD using all Clinique products to convince some of you, pretty people otherwise.
I decided to do a look using these shadows and blush.
I also used some of my other favorite Clinique products:
Colour Surge eye shadow (lid)
Almost Peach eye shadow (as a highlight. My FAVORITE highlight of all time!)
Bewitched eye shadow (to deepen crease)
Brush-On Cream liner in Black
Quick Liner pencil in Navy
Lash Doubling mascara (this is a niiiice mascara, I approve!)
Clinique Twilight Nude lipstick
Clinique Mystic long last glosswear
…I was trying to hide my bra strap from the camera but got it on the other side. I am a mess, people.
So that’s that….I found that Clinique’s shadows were extremely workable. Were they pigmented? Absolutely! Especially that frosty gold. I think it works well on the brown skin. What say you, beautiful people?
If there has ever been a time that you wanted to play around with Clinique’s…now is the time! Head on over to your nearest Nordstrom’s stat!
Have a beautiful weekend!
