Clinique Makeup and Skin Care Review

by - 12:00 AM

Hello loves! Hope you all had an amazing and lit Lunar New Year so far ;)

Today’s post will be featuring three Clinique products I have gotten from Sephora Digital – the Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask, Clinique All About Eyes Concealer and Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm.



But before going ahead, a huge shout out to the Sephora Digital team for the fast and reliable service! I placed my orders on 11 January (Wednesday) night and surprisingly, the parcel popped up at my office’s desk on 16 January (Monday)! That’s actually pretty fast considering that the parcel is delivered from Sephora Singapore.

FYI, I have a dry to combination sensitive skin hence I am very very careful when it comes to skincare and cosmetics. Most of the products I personally own are usually water-based, lightweight or contains minimal oil because any form of harsh or thick substances can trigger my skin conditions almost immediately. And that is why every time before I splurge, I have to do serious amount of research to ensure that I do not purchase something that would just suffocate my skin.




On hand: Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask.

I’m so thankful for the inventions of overnight sleeping masks hahaha. It’s like you can go to bed without worries while it works wonders for your skin! I’m really amazed with Clinique’s products as most of them are oil-free and fragrance-free.

This mask is so lightweight and non-greasy upon application. It absorbs easily into my skin – it feels as if I’m applying moisturizer or face creams. I’ve read a couple of reviews on this overnight mask in which a few users claims they face breakout or zits upon usage. However, my skin reacts perfectly fine with its formula, so I would recommend you guys to try it beforehand at your nearest Clinique or Sephora stores upon purchasing.

As its name suggests, the Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask is packed with hefty moisturizing properties hence I would say it is not really suitable for oily-skin type. This is a personal must-have if you’re constantly having a tight time for pampering sessions and what not.

Moisturized skin = healthy, radiant skin!

On hand: Clinique All About Eyes Concealer.

There’s two shades for this concealer available in Sephora MY, which is the ‘Light Neutral’ and ‘Light Golden’. As my skin is quite fair, I decided to go with the shade ‘Light Neutral’. Upon the first application, the concealer was tad runny for my liking. It’s quite watery for a concealer, but a little goes a long way.

Coverage and shade wise is a thumbs-up. The buildable coverage allows me to choose how I’d like my skin to be and it is quite easy to blend even with using just fingers. As mentioned before, Clinique’s products are fragrance-free and so is the All About Eyes Concealer. Another crucial thing to highlight is that it DOES NOT crease. I lightly dabbed about two layers on my under-eyes and yet no signs of creasing!

Bear in mind to not over-use the concealer, too much application will lead to face makeup looking cakey! Here’s a close-up photo of Clinique’s All About Eyes Concealer on my skin. Left side has no under-eye concealer, whereas the right side carries two light layers of the concealer.

 

Puffiness and redness under-eye are ‘camouflaged’ hehehehe.

On hand: Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in #07 Broadest Berry.

This is so beautiful omg. I love how these lip colour balms from Clinique are so moisturizing yet so pigmented at the same time. I’ve been on the search for bold lippies (I invested quite a lot on matte lipsticks but unfortunately they were excessively drying to my lips *sobs*) and I have to say this Lip Colour Balm really won my heart. In just one swatch, you can get beautiful, bold lips without compromising on its moisture level.

Expect zero-chapped lips with this Lip Colour Balm from Clinique. These are just so beautiful, and its pencil-like tip allows me to line my lips easily! At the moment, there are six shades available in Sephora MY, the Broadest Berry, Curviest Caramel, Chunkiest Chill, Mightlest Maraschino, Heftiest Hibiscus and Plushest Punch. I’m eyeing at the ‘Heftiest Hibiscus’, it might be an absolutely stunning nude-pink shade!



Swatches are as shown in above picture. It's actually quite thin and light in the first swatch. For bolder and intense results, I'd highly recommend to apply three full layers.

With its small and light packaging, I can easily carry the lippie with me all the time! The downside of these Chubby Sticks is that it transfers easily, so frequent touch-ups are necessary. But that’s just something minute for me considering that the Lip Colour Balm is intensely hydrating and bold.



Wore this shade for CNY as it matches most of my outfit hahahaha!
