New in my Clinique arsenal this year:
Clinique Touch Base for Eyes — I have been keeping an eye out for a good eye shadow primer, but didn’t want to spend a fortune to “try”. This primer from Clinique gets AMAZING reviews, is inexpensive AND can double as a primer or a stand-alone shadow. If you aren’t sure, primer is a base layer for your eyes to help “set” your powder shadow so you don’t get creases, fading or smudging. I’m not the best at makeup by any stretch of the imagination, so anything to help make me look like I know what I’m doing is a win in my book.
Some of my tried and true absolute favorite Clinique products:
I received a sample of this in one of my bonus bags and it is a game changer. It is an oil-free concealer-type product that I put on under my CC cream and powder. The cooling tip helps minimize puffiness and it brightens my entire eye area. It is seriously magic.
It is on the spendy side so I have been squeezing every single last drop out of my sample and using my Christmas money combined with the bonus gift promo to buy a new tube. The nice thing about this product is that it doesn’t take much so will last a LONG time.
Clinique High Impact Mascara (waterproof is also available) – 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.
The Clinique Lash-Building Primer is a lash-conditioning undercoat that helps boost the benefits of the mascara. I have been using it for a few months and am really liking it. I thought I would only use it on full makeup days, but it just takes an extra 10-20 seconds and I can really see a difference in how my mascara glides on. The mascara is regularly priced at $18 and the primer is $17. Buy both and qualify for the bonus bag!
Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion is the only thing I will use on my face. I have tried several other products (super cheap and not cheap at all) and it is the all-around best bet for me. Very moisturizing, but not in the least bit greasy. I always try and wait for one of their free gift promos to purchase the lotion, just to stretch my dollars a little further.
I received the Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream last Christmas and I’ve been LOVING it. I’m all about reducing the amount of time I have to spend making myself look like a human in the morning (read: lazy and fairly uninspired). CC Cream color corrects, brightens dullness, diminishes redness, hydrates AND provides sun protection. This cream is priced at $39 and would automatically qualify for the gift! I apply with the Beauty Blender Original Sponge Applicator with a little loose powder on top and it has changed my life.
