Beautiful Beginnings with Clinique

Beautiful Beginnings with Clinique

What was the first Clinique product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first Clinique product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer:  I remember my mom buying me Clinique’s 3-step system when I was a teenager (it was closest I ever came to beauty as a young teen!), which I don’t remember liking, but really who knows–I probably wasn’t even using it right, LOL! I actually am a fan of Clinique’s skincare range. I find a lot of it just works; not too many claims, nothing over-the-top, and it does the job I need it to do. I also love how affordable it is.

Rant & Rave: Non-Sticky Lipgloss

This Week’s Topic: NON-STICKY LIPGLOSS!

Your Mission: Tell us what you love, hate, or are otherwise indifferent to about non-sticky lipgloss. What drives you bananas? What makes them necessary?

my answer: I love the texture and feel of a non-sticky lipgloss, but they tend to wear off so quickly, so you have to reapply. I’m not too keen on that–I’m kind of lazy when it comes to reapplying a gloss.

Most Overrated & Underrated Lipgloss Formula

Over & Under: Most Overrated & Underrated Lipgloss Formula

There are always products that receive endless raves, but they don’t always live up to our expectations or work out as well as they do for others.  Share your picks for most overrated and underrated LIPGLOSSES.  Don’t forget to share your whats and whys as to your choices!

  • Most Overrated: [answer]
  • Most Underrated: [answer]

My Picks

  • Most Overrated: MAC Lipglass — it feels less refined compared to other glosses on the market as formulas have been improved and redone in the past 5-10 years. It’s a good formula, but gloss doesn’t have to be as thick or as sticky to wear as well anymore.
  • Most Underrated: Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lipglosses–it’s like MAC Dazzleglass and Chanel Glossimers but better. So shimmery!

Sunday Link Love, Volume #098

Happy Sunday!

Whew! It has been a really busy weekend, so I’m thrilled to be back home! We went down to southern California to watch my sister graduate from UCI and then helped her move back home. She’s going to be my personal assistant once she’s all settled! 🙂
