Clinique Cherry Pop Lipstick – From Glamour Magazine!

I was very excited when I saw that the lovely Tanya Burr was going to be gracing the Glamour front cover for December! I was even more excited when I saw that you would get a little Clinique Sample with each magazine…it’s like two Christmases coming at the same time :).

I was so ready for a relaxed weekend after the mania of my sister’s wedding last week, so a WILD cup of tea and a magazine seemed to be the best remedy to cure my minor exhaustion. Reading Tanya’s interview just made it clear to me how influential and powerful the internet is. Having started a Youtube channel earlier this year (there’s a link in the menu above if you fancy a gander) it is crazy to think people can become THIS big from just filming some videos on make up.

Anyway, onto the Clinique lipstick mini that I got with my Glamour magazine!

I had wanted to try a lipstick from the Clinique Pop range and I have heard a lot of bloggers saying how nicely moisturising and pigmented the formula was :). Β It was certainly moisturising, I got the shade ‘Cherry Pop’ (which just reminded me of Cherryade) and it’s really beautiful. A true, blue toned red, it is a lovely shade.

The lipstick itself is teeny tiny, imagine the bullet being half the width of a normal sized lipstick. The formula is very pigmented – it doesn’t need a lot of going over to develop a nice colour. It is most definitely moisturising and because of this it is only slightly sheeny. If you blot it with a tissue and then apply another layer you know you are good to go for the day/evening :).

I really liked this lipstick – not entirely sure if I would end up finishing this one and would have to get a full size but I am definitely glad I picked this as my free product!

Have you tried any of the Clinique Pop lip colours?

My Most Recent Repurchases

There are usually a few ‘holy grail’ make up products that hang around the depths of my dressing table – but recently there have been a few things that I have repurchased. I only repurchase things if I REALLY like them. I mean, really. I am not a second chancer, or a ooh it might have changed-er, I am seriously brutal.

The things I have repurchased most recently are a mix of skin care and make up – and to me, they are essentials that will stay on my dressing table for a very long time!

When it comes to skin care, two of my favourite products are Nivea Creme and the Simple Kind to Eyes Make Up Remover. Nivea Creme is something my family have used always – I have always seen my mum use it – but I don’t use it on my whole face. The only thing I use this for is to moisturise my lips and maybe on areas of dry skin. It’s a very thick moisturiser and is great if you want something to moisturise that will last for a very long time.

The Simple Make Up Remover I have been using for the past 5 years or so…I can’t tell you how many of these bottles I’ve gone through! This stuff is really amazing, it helps to get off mascara so well (on a scale of mascaras I’d say it’s great from a Benefit Bad Gal Lash to a Maybelline Lash Sensational!).

For make up, I actually have TWO concealers – I know, it’s probably a bit much. The first one is the Maybelline Anti Age Eraser Eye concealer, which is one of the best concealers I have ever used! It’s not even very expensive, it has a foam dome shaped applicator which I don’t mind but a lot of people have posted hacks of how to get it off. I love this – it’s medium coverage I’d say but it feels so light and it blends like a dream. The next concealer I repurchased is this Maybelline FIT Me in the shade 20. I use this every day on top of the Anti Age for just a touch more coverage..it’s so good!

Lastly, I have something that I think I have repurchased at least three times. This is the Soap & Glory Brow Archery – which is an eyebrow pencil that has a spoolie on one end and an ashy toned brown pencil on the other. It’s a twist up, which I love and the shade I have is called ‘Hot Chocolate’. The spoolie is genius – and these last a very long time!

So that’s my run down of the things I’ve repurchased the most recently, I hope you’ve enjoyed reading!

Thanks,
