Several times throughout the year, Nordstrom will quietly price match sales from other large retailers and we are definitely the winners. This is one of the rare times we will see discounts on top brands like Clinique, Bobbi Brown, MAC, Clarins and more.
Outside of the FREE Clinique beauty bonus bag that is offered a few times a year, price matching is the ONLY time we will see a discount on Clinique.
Clinique is a definitely one of my go-to brands. Quality products at not-so-astronomical prices. Here are a few of my favorites:
Clinique ‘Even Better Eyes’ Dark Circle Corrector (10% off) — Apparently, working from home with a 5 and 7-year old turns you into an exhausted version of your former self, complete with ridonkulous under eye circles. In one of my bonus gifts from Clinique, I receive a sample of this corrector and it’s kinda magical. The cooling tip breaks up puffiness and it instantly brightens skin tone. The description says it visibly lightens circles in 12 weeks, but I saw a change immediately. Definitely a must purchase.
Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion (10% off) — I have been using this lotion since high school! It’s light and not at all greasy, but extremely moisturizing. As far as quality brands go, this is a STEAL.
If you have skin that tends to run on the oilier side, I had a friend recommend the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel, with more of a lightweight formula than the lotion.
Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 (10% off) — This was a new one for me this year. But seriously. Multiple skin care solutions in one product?! Word. This fits perfectly into my
lazy efficient morning routine. CC cream color corrects, brightens dullness, gets rid of redness, even helps hide under eye circles. I don’t wear any sort of foundation, so this is all I got. It’s genius. I feel like it’s literally instant correction.
Clinique High Impact Mascara (not in stock, but you can pick up the waterproof version here) — Every time Clinique offers a free bonus gift, it comes with a small tube of this mascara and it’s now all I ever use. It’s very simple (no fancy complicated wands), no fuss and great color. Even without the price match, the price is awesome for a quality brand. You can find a trial version along with a Mini Chubby Stick Cheek Color Balm and a Mini Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Color Balm in the Color on the Run Gift Set, also price matched at 10% off!
The mascara is great by itself, but I’ve also been using this Clinique Lash-Building Primer under my mascara when I actually do full makeup and it’s AMAZING. My lashes look fuller and the mascara seems to glide on a little smoother. It is an extra step, but doesn’t add more than 10-15 seconds to my routine.
Clinique Touch Base for Eyes (10% off) is such a great addition to your makeup bag! It can be used as a stand alone shadow with just a hint of color, but my favorite way to use it is a shadow primer. I put it on underneath my eyeshadow and it stays on all day long with no creasing. Also seems to intensify the color and gives my eyes a little pop with the shimmer. Inexpensive and so versatile!
