This beautiful Clinique Party Makeup Set* was kindly sent to me at Christmas & due to my dad being sick I wasn’t able to post about it. This set is no longer available but Clinique always have fantastic sets available and many of the products can be bought separately, plus it it too pretty not to be blogged about & shared with all of you.
This set comes in a cute hot pink & orange pouch and inside you get,
Eyeshadow quad with the shades Limited Edition Pink, Hazy, Raspberry Beret, Chocolate Covered Cherry, Clinique High Impact Mascara in Black, Clinique Quickliner for eyes in 18 intense black honey, Clinique Chubby Stick in 09 Roundest Raspberry, Clinique All About Eyes Cream and a Pink Nail Polish.
Great party essentials!
The All About Eyes Cream 15ml – I applied under my eyes before applying my foundation & concealer. This felt cooling and left my under eyes smooth and hydrated.
I tend to shy away from pink eyeshadow but I have to say it worked really well with the brown shades. All four shadows are very pigmented, the pink colours had a little fall out but nothing that couldn’t be tidied up. The chocolate brown shade was my standout colour. These blended well & I am now a pink shadow convert. This is a gorgeous quad, the packaging is so sleek and perfect for travel. These eyeshadow quads are available in 8 different colour combinations.
The Clinique Quickliner is in a very dark brown shade and is so creamy it just glides on. I have quite crinkly eyelids & eyeliners tend to catch and drag but this one didn’t do that. It was easy to apply. I want to try a few more shades of these as I think they wear really well and I have been wearing this a lot on its own smoked out a little too.
The High Impact mascara is good for achieving voluminous fanned out lashes. One coat isn’t very high impact you will have to build it up to achieve that. I put 3 coats on and found that worked well, I even liked this on my bottom lashes. This mascara will see you through the night without flaking or smudging.
My favourite thing about this kit is the Chubby Stick Intense, I love the colour (roundest raspberry). Its a deep plummy pink, it feels nice on my lips not too drying. This has good staying power, I didn’t have to reapply this for a good couple of hours. It gives intensive long lasting colour, I have found my new favourite lip product.
There is also a really nice Pink nail polish in this kit too. There is no shade name on it but its a very rich raspberry pink shade, it goes perfectly with the chubby stick. I have never tried a Clinique nail polish before and liked the formula and the brush although this didn’t last too long on my nails it is great for a night out.
I’m by no way a makeup artist & I’m cringing at the photos but thats me and I like how the look came out. I followed the step by step card that came in the eyeshadow quad and I like how the colours look together. Thank you to my long suffering husband for playing photographer!
