Clinique Autumn 2018 Bonus Time

Hello all!!!

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.

Clinique Fall 2017 Bonus Time

Good morning everyone!!!

I have missed blogging SO MUCH these past few months, and now that university has started up again and I was a complete fool and enrolled in 6 courses, my time has been monopolized by studying and work. But Clinique released their Fall 2017 bonus recently, and I have been dying to gush about it.

To qualify for this bonus, I picked up a Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes & Lips, along with a Clinique Happy Gelato Cream in Berry Blush.

This bonus includes:

  • Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief
  • Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+
  • High Impact Mascara
  • All About Shadow/Blush Palette in Sunrise or Sunset
  • Chubby Lip Balm
  • Clinique Happy Perfume
  • Clinique x Jonathan Adler cosmetics bag

This bonus offered two colour collection choices, Sunrise (left) and Sunset (right), featuring different chubby sticks and eyeshadow and blush shades. Sunrise included an All About Shadow/Blush Palette in Foxier + Mink, and Cupid, and a Chubby Lip Colour Balm in Mega Melon. Sunset included an All About Shadow/Blush Palette in Like Like Mink, and Sunset Glow, and a Chubby Lip Colour Balm in Super Strawberry.

Despite the amazing shades of this bonus, my favourite part if definitely the three-dimensional geometric tiled cosmetic bag, designed by Jonathan Adler, the American potter, designer, and author. All of his designs are modern yet chic, and I would love to have them in my home.
