After a long wait, Clinique has released their autumn bonus, and I rushed out to pick one up after I saw it advertised in the Hudson’s Bay flyer. I have no idea what happened this spring, but I seemed to completely miss the bonus release, so my list of products to shop for has been growing since last autumn.
To qualify for this bonus, I picked up two shades of the newly released Matte Pop Lip Shadow that I wanted to try. Stay tuned for a full review of the lip shadows on the blog soon.
The two choices for this bonus were Eyes, or Lips and Cheeks. Because I am terrible at making decisions, I got the Eyes bonus first and have since sent away for the Lips and Cheeks one as well, along with a few of my holy-grail products I have run out of.
The Eyes bonus includes:
- Kapitza makeup bag
- Quickliner for Eyes Intense
- All About Shadow Duo Slider in Strawberry Fudge
- Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Super Strawberry
- High Impact Black Chubby Stick Mascara
- Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser
- Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion +
Sometimes I use these bonuses as a chance to try out new products before investing in a full size, but this bonus is filled with trial sizes of a bunch of my tried and true favourites. I was especially excited that the eyeshadow in this bonus was the Strawberry Fudge duo since it was one of the first Clinique duos I ever owned, and it feels so nostalgic to own it again. Plus, the brown shade is a near-perfect match to my eyebrows and makes for a great brow filler in a pinch.
Also, this Kapitza bag is gorgeous, and it’s the perfect antidote to the dreary rainy weather Vancouver has been getting lately. I have so many of these bags but this one struck me as extra pretty, so right after I took the photo for this post, I moved all my makeup into it.
All in all, I am very happy with this bonus, and I can’t wait for the Lips and Cheeks bonus to arrive in the next few days.
