Good morning everyone!!!
This is the first Clinique bonus time of 2016, and I could not be more excited. Clinique has a bunch of new products out, such as the Clinique Pop Glaze Sheer Lip Color + Primer, Lid Pop eyeshadows, Pep-Start Eye Cream, Clinique Pop Lacquer Lip Color + Primer, Sweet Pots Sugar Scrub and Lip Balm, and so many more. I wish I could try them all out right now, but my bank balance and I can’t agree on how many are “appropriate,” so we compromised and I picked up two new little goodies to try and qualified for the bonus gift of essential travel-size products.
After much deliberation, I picked out two of Clinique’s newly released Sweet Pots Sugar Scrub and Lip Balms. They are all such lovely colours, but Sweet Rose looks like such a soft pink, and Citron is the ideal clear lip balm that we all want sometimes when we are going with a plain lip look. I have yet to try them, but look out for a review post of these in the next little while because I already know I will be sharing my thoughts on them with you.
And now for the little cosmetic bag of goodies:
Clinique always has such vibrant cosmetic bags, and this one definitely lives up to that reputation. This one was designed by Kapitza, an East London design studio run by German sisters Nicole and Petra Kapitza. This studio actually conducts experimental research investigating geometric shapes and mathematical formulas. I was never a huge fan of math class, but this is one nifty application of it.
The qualifier price for this bonus is $31, but it is valued at $85, making it a great reason to wait half the year to stock up on your Clinique favourites. Like many Clinique bonuses, there is a choice involved, which can either be really great or really troubling if, like me, you struggle to make small decisions like what to eat for dinner or, in this case, what lipstick and eyeshadow trio I would like to try this season. I did a review post on Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer lipsticks last year, featuring the two shades available for this bonus, which you can read here if you’d like. This bonus also comes with:
- Smart Night Custom-Repair Moisturizer, 15 ml
- Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser, 30 ml
- Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+, 30 ml
- High Impact Mascara in Black (a personal favourite of mine)
This gift is also paired with a spend more, get more type deal, where you receive a deluxe size of your choice of Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief or Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator with a purchase of $75 or more. I didn’t go for this offer this go around because I am pretty stocked up on moisturizers and I am really trying to use up all of my sample sizes before I start collecting more.
What bonus times are happening right now where you live???
