12 Gifts of Christmas: Clinique Chubby Sampler Set

Well this is annoying - I can't seem to find the Clinique Chubby Sampler Set anywhere online as it appears to have sold out everywhere, but I thought I'd post about it anyway just in case stock can be tracked down in local stores.  I'm sure I say this every year, but Clinique really do know how to do Christmas - I'm always so excited to see what they have to offer and they're particularly good at ensuring all price points are covered; this year t[...]

Mask Monday: Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask

Apologies for the rubbish picture quality - I haven't quite nailed taking pictures of anything even remotely reflective yet, as you can see! I've waxed lyrical about the amazing Clinique Moisture Surge range which includes the Moisture Surge Overnight Mask - you see brands? That's how you name a product; a nice and simply descriptive four words is enough! I'm really into overnight masks lately as they provide such a great hit of moisture, making t[...]

Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer

Here we have the very product I've been waiting for all my adult life.  A foundation that's easy to apply, blends beautifully, covers like nothing I've ever seen before and leaves a healthy dewy finish.  The Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer is nothing short of amazing and it was almost like a magic trick when I applied it; I dotted it around my face using the lipgloss-like brush applicator wand, before buffing it in with a sti[...]

Clinique Kiss it Better Set 2015

Every year Clinique release a limited edition set designed to generate donations for research into childhood cancer at Great Ormond Street, and every year I'm touched by how lovely a concept this really is. The Kiss it Better set is something a little bit wonderful that usually contains a couple of Clinique goodies, but most importantly, the percentage of the purchase price that actually goes to charity is HUGE.  None of this £1 or £2 ru[...]


Dehydrated Skin? Here’s the Range for You!

Spots are my biggest skin issue, as we know, but coming in at a close second is dehydration which is something I've battled with for quite some time now - I want to say it started during my pregnancy (it certainly got worse then) but I think it might've been something that's been around for a while.  If you have extremely hard to please skin then the Clinique Moisture Surge range is absolutely amazing. The battle for dehydrated, spot-prone ski[...]


Clinique Chubby Stick Scuplting Contour and Sculpting Highlight

The excitement over contouring is showing no signs of waning which is no bad thing since it's a great and relatively easy make-up skill to acquire.  I think 2015 will see it all go a few steps further with a fully contoured face involving very few products to add shadow and light on the face, eyes, brows and lips.  Clinique have released a contouring extension to the well-loved Chubby Stick range with two new products, the Chubby Stick Sculpting[...]

Clinique Skincare Minis

More from Clinique following on from my last post on the Nutcracker collection as I was having a mooch through their site when I spotted these awesome skincare minis for a fiver a pop! I think one of their Christmas gifts was a set of all of these, so I'm guessing it was a popular set (it sure was pretty) that's inspired the arrival of these being available individually.  Clinique have such a great reputation for their skincare, but not everybody[...]


Clinique The Nutcracker Collection

I've been holding off posting this as I really wanted to get a picture of myself wearing these products in the post, but it doesn't look like I'll get another chance to before the NY and I thought I'd share this with you as a bit of Christmas inspiration as boy are these products festive! A few weeks ago I was taken to see Nutcracker with Clinique and it was absolutely amazing - a total festive joy to watch and I would recommend it to anyon[...]


New Additions to the Clinique Chubby Family

This is a super quick post just to let you know about some gorgeous new arrivals to the Clinique Chubby line-up. There are two new launches, each containing four shades. The first is the Chubby Stick Baby Tint Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm which are lighter, gentler versions of the original Chubby Sticks which nicely finish off the Chubby lips family since there's now the original, an intense version and a lighter version - there really is a finish[...]


Clinique Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick Review: Matte Petal & Matte Magenta

Following on from yesterdays post which showed swatches of all the shades in the Clinique Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick range, here's a post sharing my thoughts and review on two of the shades, Matte Petal and Matte Magenta.  It's been a while since I've developed such an obsession with a particular product, but I seriously cannot get enough of these lipsticks which is why I picked up Matte Mandarin for myself last week, so expect a post on that[...]


Clinique Lash Power Feathering Mascara

Mascaras have become quite 'samey' lately, with the idea being that everyone wants gigantic, long, spidery lashes with that wow factor, and consequently the mascaras are designed to deliver (or at least try...) as much oomph as possible.  I love a big lash just as much as the next person, but lately I've been enjoying very gentle, easy make-up looks that just add a bit of a lift and definition, which is what I think the Clinique Lash Power Feathe[...]
