So as I mentioned in my 10 Things I’m Thankful For Post I had a really bad day with my eczema recently and decided to cheer myself up with a little retail therapy! Finally my order has arrived and I have to share it with you all since I ordered the lipstick that I mentioned in my Clinique Wish List that everyone seemed to be lusting after.
My first purchase was the Blended Face Powder and Brush in Invisible Blend. I desperately needed a loose powder to help set my concealer under my eyes so this was a must have. I have to say I’m a little disspointed with the brush which seems very small and poor quality but the finish you can create with this powder is flawless. It is named invisible blend but I’d recommend choosing one of the darker shades unless you are very fair skinned.
I love the Airbrush Concealer so I was quick to top up when I ran out! It works great just as a concealer as it gives good coverage but I use it mainly for contouring. I use the shade 01 Fair which has natural pinky undertones like my skin but there is a wide variety of colours available to suit pink or yellow toned skin.
I struggle to keep my eyeshadow on all day so I thought I’d give the All About Shadow Primer For Eyes a go. I have yet to try this out but a review will be coming your way as soon as I do! The only thing I will say is that I purposefully ordered it in the shade Very Fair because the other shade available looks far too dark for my skin but now I can see it I think looks a lot darker than it did on the website.
The product you’ve all been waiting for; I ordered the Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick in Matte Petal! I was so excited to get this that I tried it out straight away and I am in love. Unlike other matte lipsticks that I have used in the past this one is not at all drying and it seems to have a soft buttery texture which I think actually moisturised my lips. Plus the colour is absolutely perfect for summer, I can really see this being my new go to lipstick!
The next few products I received free with my order by entering the code SUMMER at the checkout.
This is the Almost Lipstick in Black Honey. I love the texture and the very sheer, natural colour that it gives. I’m a little disappointed that it is so sheer as when I first saw it I assumed it would be a gorgeously deep red colour but it still gives a pretty and fresh faced natural look.
I am so happy I got the High Impact Mascara free with my order as this is the mascara that I normally use and I was running a bit low. I love all of the Clinique mascaras and as you can see it has a nice simple wand which isn’t as heavy as the wand featured on the full size mascara. This small 4g sample will last ages if I remember to screw the top on properly!
This tiny Take the Day Off Makeup Remover sample will be perfect for travelling with. It’s just the right size to go in your handbag or clutch and I’m sure I will fill it back up from my full size bottle once I’ve used it all. Convenient and cute!
My final freebie was a 5ml sample of their popular All About Eyes cream. Just looking at it I assumed it would be quite thick and heavy but when I tested it on the back of my hand it was gorgeous and light!
From top to bottom; Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick in Matte Petal, Almost Lipstick in Black Honey, All About Shadow Eye Primer in Very Fair and Airbrush Concealer in 01 Fair.
