CLINIQUE HAUL – REVIEW AND SWATCHES!

Hi my loves! Clinique was so generous to send me ALL of these goodies. I just want to take a moment to tell you guys how much I love you. One of my biggest dreams came true – Clinique has been one of my favorites brands for years and being able to work with them is just so incredible and it’s all because of you guys. Your support means everything to me, so thank you for always reading my blog and being there for me. Without you, this wouldn’t be possible!

So I got a bunch of things, makeup AND skincare! Let’s start with this popular foundation that everyone on Youtube are talking about right now! This is the Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer. This is for all skin types, it’s full coverage and oil-free! It’s lightweight, moisturizing and even though it’s full coverage, it won’t clog your pores, which is a HUGE plus for me. Mine is in the color “Alabaster” and it’s bit too dark for me, but I just mix it with a foundation mixer and I’m good to go! So I’ve been testing this and it says it lasts for 12-hours and that’s 100% true. It stays put, even through sweat and humidity – one of the reasons why this is my new favorite. Perfect for the summer time. You can also use this for concealer, you basically have 2 products in one which is genius. I find that it applies the best with a beauty blender.

NOTE: Due to the rich pigment level that enhances this flawless coverage makeup, shades may appear deeper when first applied

 – and it’s suggested to choose a shade lighter than what you would normally go for.

THE NEXT COUPLE OF THINGS YOU CAN GET IN A SET HERE.

Next thing I want to talk about is the Clinique Superprimer Face Primer. It’s lightweight, oil-free primer that helps create a smooth, even canvas for foundation. There’s a Superprimer for redness, dullness, discoloration, and sallowness. This one is the Universal Superprimer, which preps skin beautifully for makeup. It is translucent and you can even wear it alone. I really like this one, and my foundation does stay on all day! I definitely recommend it.

Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm is perfect for the lips. I got it in the color “04 Mega Melon” which is a sheer peachy pink. It’s so nourishing and moisturizing and gives a hint of soft shine. I love lip balms with a bit of color, it makes your lips look amazing and healthy. So much more fun than a plain white balm! You don’t have to  sharpen it, simply swivel up to reveal more of it. This will last you forever!

A product that looks a bit like the lip balm, is the Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes in the color 02 lots o’ latte. It’s a sheer, creamy color – the perfect base for eyeshadow or you can wear it alone if you want to get ready super quick! This doesn’t need sharpening either! There’s tons of colors to choose from to make your eyes pop. This specific color I can’t find on the website, maybe it’s only a part of the set, but you can find the other colors down below.

I also tested the Clinique High Impact Mascara in black. What it’s supposed to do: “Instantly volumizes, lengthens, and defines each and every lash”. So is it true? YES! Guys it’s so hard for me to find mascaras that I like, so I was a bit nervous for this one, but I liked it right away. My lashes look amazing, it doesn’t clump or smudge and I just know that I will be using this every day. The wand makes it easy to apply, it’s not too thick or too thin and it’s easy to control,  A+. Trust me when I say you need this in your life.

Clinique Sculptionary Cheek Contouring Palette is beyond amazing. I only use it as blush, and I have it in the color “Defining Nectars”. I need to go buy the other shades as well, because wow! It blends and build beautifully. You can use them separately to colour, contour, highlight or do as I did – use them as blush. You can also swirl them together for a quick easy glow, so many options which I love. It is also long-wearing, oil-free!

Lastly for the makeup section is the Clinique Pop Lip Colour and Primer. Can I just say that Clinique has one of the BEST lipsticks, I want them all! I got the color 04 Beige Pop. It’s SO comfortable, pigmented, smooth and creamy. It’s a lightweight formula that lasts for hours. It’s a satin finish and the color is a light, pinkish nude creme – an every day shade. This is the perfect color for me, it’s hard to find pretty nudes for my skin tone, but this is perfect. I’m so in love you guys! Mac, go home (did I just really say that?)

Now for the skincare products!

I’m always looking for the perfect moisturizer, I’m very picky. I tried the Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief, it comes in amazing light pink packaging and it looks so pretty! It’s a multitasking, lightweight cream-gel that provides up to 24 hours of soothing hydration. It feels so luxurious and amazing on the skin. It immediately cools and refreshes for a soft, smooth complexion. My skin is insanely dry and I’m not lying when I say this: after the first few times I tried it, I could feel a huge difference. My skin got so smooth and hydrated and it feels completely new. This will be on the top shelf, it’s my new go-to cream for sure. It sinks extremely fast into the skin, so you don’t get that annoying sticky feeling – I HATE it. Huge bonus, I now swear by this.

Which skin type is it good for?

✔ Normal
✔ Oily
✔ Combination
✔ Dry
✔ Sensitive

Then there’s the Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Correcting Serum. I hate my pores and I buy everything that can make them smaller – skincare, primers, you name it. This product contains the Pore Resurfacing Complex, which quickly and gently clears out debris and rough flakes. Over time, skin creates stronger supports for a tighter, smoother, younger look. It’s oil-free and ideal for all skin types! They say after 2 weeks up to 58% of the pores will seem smaller. I haven’t been able to try it for that long yet, but I will keep you guys updated! So far I really like it. The best pore-product I’ve used, no doubt.

340 kr – $46.00.

Last but not least, Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream. I’ve been looking for something like this forever, I heard so many good things about this product, so I had to try it. I needed something that would brighten, hydrate and take care of my under eyes, because that’s super important. Its cool touch and de-puffing tip help keep eyes looking fresh while smoothing the way for makeup. If you suffer from stress, fatigue, and lack of sleep this will help you right away. I noticed a difference after the first time I used it! A little goes a long way and it will last you for a really long time. The bags under my eyes disappeared and my makeup looks so much better. This is a must have.

Conclusion: there’s not one product that I didn’t like. This is my 100% honest opinion – you know I would never ever lie to you. I completely fell in love and there’s a reason why Clinique is one of my all time favorite brands. Their packaging is just amazing, every single product looks so good, you really want to show it off. I’m really surprised that I liked everything, and it just left me wanting more, so there’s no doubt that I will have to go and buy more, there’s still so many products I want to try.

    Lækre sager, du har fået fat i (: Jeg har i flere år været været kæmpe fan af Clinique’s hudpleje, men jeg synes nu virkelig også at de har haft nogle super lækre makeup lanceringer her de seneste år. Jeg er især helt vild med deres Chubby Sticks og Lip Pop (:
