Clinique Even Better Makeup SPF15 in 66 True Beige

I realized I didn’t say why the lack of updates in this post. Returning to blogging was difficult with the sudden workload after my trip, though I’m slowly getting back to the groove.

Anyway, I have a foundation review, which I can’t believe I haven’t blogged about. I used this before and almost forgot about it.

Too much makeup shopping!

A collective post on my loot from third quarter this year to present. There are some I couldn’t find photos I took of, so I didn’t include them here. I don’t want to retake because I don’t remember when I bought them should I remember which ones they are from my makeup stuff. Anyway, I added my initial impressions per product below.

Benefit Rockitude! and the Porefessional
These were purchased earlier than 3rd quarter of this year.

Benefit Rockitude! – I only wanted the Benetint, but I saw this and thought this was such a good deal. I get to try the High Beam too!

Benefit Porefessional – This great for travel since, for a face powder, it comes with a brush instead of a puff.

Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm

Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm

Besides with gadgets, I’d hate to forget anything and end up buying when I could get something else instead. So I packed my vanity kit a few days before my India trip. I needed to pack my Bifesta, which was already more than halfway the bottle. I thought I could empty and dispose that on the trip. Since packed early, I needed a new makeup remover to use on the days before the trip. At the time, micellar water and the likes of Bifesta seemed weren’t enough to clean my face. My face broke out at the time. Then I heard one of my favorite beauty vloggers talk about Clinique’s Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm.

September favorites

Hello, lovelies! We are finally doing monthly favorites. This has been a long time coming. 🙂

Joiz’s September Favorites

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in Seduction

The Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor range is one of the good liquid lipsticks in the drugstore imo. No surprise that Joiz likes it as well, specifically Seduction that she uses for her everyday or work makeup look.

Clinique Lip and Smile

I had confused this with another Clinique event and it has taken this long for me to realize this Lip and Smile and that Play with Pop were different. LOL! Anyway, the Clinique Lip and Smile was a free makeover offer with tips and tricks on makeup on-trend such as thick brows and ombre lips. I had the ‘boyfriend brows’ and bold lips, which were both suggested to me, and Joiz had the ‘Rebel Chic’ look.

First impressions on the Clinique Pop Oil Lip & Cheek Glow in Black Honey Glow

I have been waiting for the local Clinique stores to have the Clinique Pop™ Oil Lip & Cheek Glow. I didn’t even know that Black Honey is among the shades. It was good timing that co-blogger Joiz and I was at Clinique (Rustan’s Makati) last weekend for the Lip & Smile event since they just had the Pop Oils in stock for only about a week at the time. The shade I bought was Black Honey Glow.

I’ve used the oil for a few times already since I bought it. Here are my first impressions:

  • Consistency is slightly thick (thus its fluid-gel formula), so it takes some effort to get a natural blush finish.
  • I love the dewy finish on the cheeks!
  • It doesn’t come off sheer on the lips as I thought it would be like the Clinique Superbalm™ Moisturizing Gloss in the same shade.
  • It leaves a red stain when the gloss and shine is gone.

I’m really loving the Pop Oil so far that it makes me want to get another one. I’ll get all if I could! 😀

Clinique Cream Shaper for Eyes

Upon the start of the month, per usual, I switched makeup for my daily/office look. There are a couple of new items in my July makeup routine. I’ll review them individually and in no specific order starting with an eye makeup. 🙂
