The event was held off the shop floor in a room that was fantastically decorated for this event. Once we were all checked in we were all shown to a room that had quite a lot of products to try as well as loads of brushes and applicators. I just love these beauty events where you get to sit down and experiment with all the colors. It really does let you get a feel for the range.
After a quick introduction about Clinique we were told about all of the products and the best way to use them. Apart from a big range of makeup, Clinique is well known for it's range of skincare, suited to all different skin types.
I once tried Clinique's 3 step skincare programme a few years back. My skin really didn't take to it and the clarifying lotion I was recommended was completely the wrong one for my skin type and even hurt to use. It stung so bad it felt like acid and I had to wash it off. Fortunately I decided to give Clinique another try and this event was a perfect opportunity to see the full range on offer. I was told that 3 step isn't for everyone (I happen to be one of those people) and that there was a more suitable range for my skin type that is much gentler and without alcohol.
The skin products I tried on my skin earlier on did feel much better than the ones I had tried a few years back and I will be going back to the Clinique counter for a skin consultation.
After skincare it was time to check out the makeup. Clinique offer a full range of foundation along with a good range of color. Even for people like me who love something a little less ordinary there was plenty of colors for me to choose from.
Using all of the products on offer I was able to create a makeup look for myself. I was really impressed with their Beyond Perfection Foundation And Concealer. It gave me full coverage and blended into the skin nicely. I also liked using their new Foundation Buff Brush which felt awesome to apply foundation with and gave my skin that nice glow.
|Products I used|
At the event we were all given a fantastic goody bag with some smaller sized products as well as some samples. One of the products was the primer I had used earlier on. I loved the feel of it and i'm very happy there was one in the goody bag.
I really enjoyed the event and thought it was fantastic. It was a great introduction for me to Clinque and a great opportunity to try new products. Thanks Clinique.
