Taking the Plunge: Clinique

Sorry, for the slightly yellow tinged images here. You gotta work with the weather you've got to work with i'm afraid!

So, i was very thankful to receive some very generous Boots vouchers for Christmas and i have a forever growing wishlist for my favourite High Street drugstore. I love that Boots sells a selection of high end and high street brands, so you can mix and match, picking up all your favourites in one spot. Well, one high end brand i don't tend to buy for myself is Clinique. I love Clinique and have been lucky enough to receive some of their Chubby Sticks as gifts in the past, and i love those adorable pencil balms. So, i decided that this year i wanted to pick up some new products that i've been eyeing up for a while, and seen on blogs for months.

Since i'm so in love with my beloved original Chubby Sticks, i knew that i had to give the new Chubby Stick Intense a go. Let me tell you, they have the most beautiful, smooth formulation that glides on the lips and doesn't feel sticky or dry. It feels fairly moisturising, and light when you've been wearing it all day. It does require some reapplying but i much prefer that for this type of formulation. I decided to go for this gorgeous shade called Grandest Grape. It's a pinky, purple shade that's not super dark but is actually just a nice, bright shade that can be worn all year round.

Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes in Lavish Lilac

Something that is entirely new to me, and i was very excited to try, is the Chubby Stick for eyes. Since i loved the lip products so much, i just knew that i had to give it a go and i was well prepared for falling in love all over again. Thankfully, i wasn't disappointed and these shadow sticks have a beautiful, smooth formula just like it's sister products. I kind of has a powder finish, but not entirely as it stays really creamy when worked into the lid. This formulation makes it really easy to blend, alone and with other shadows. It works great as an eyeshadow base or just as an easy day to day all over colour. I love this shade that i picked up called Lavish Lilac. It's a beautiful, soft purple grey colour that's not too intense but leaves a lovely shimmer.

Which are your favourite Clinique products, and which are your favourite shades?
