It’s Clinique Bonus Time at Macy’s!

Macy’s is offering the newest Clinique bonus now through October 27 at participating stores with a $25 purchase. This couldn’t have come at a better time, because I am all out of Turnaround Concentrate Radiance Renewer ($45). I love this stuff, once I started using it, I noticed a huge difference in my skin. It really helped to bring things into balance.

Clinique “Meet the Experts”

A few weeks back, I was able to participate in a fun event at Macy’s for Clinique called “Meet the Experts.” Meet the Experts was an exclusive beauty event that offered women an opportunity to learn directly from the top experts at Clinique. I was thrilled to participate and learn about skin care and the newest trends in make-up application.

Another perk was a great Clinique bonus I was able to get after the event if I purchased any items:

The bonus included:

I thought this sounded like a pretty great deal so I decided to sign up for an appointment. I usually take advantage of the bonuses, so the opportunity to get a free tutorial in the process sounded fun.

When I arrived at my appointment I was treated to a free treat just for participating, a special compact and a sample of the 7 Day Scrub Cream:

I started the appointment by answering some questions about my skin at one of Clinique’s new Skin Care Consultation kiosks:

At the end, I received a nifty little print out that gave me a shopping list of what to get for my specific skin type (Skin Type 3/Combination Oily). Here were their recommendations for me:

After our consultation, I got to try some of these skin care products and then we got to work on the makeup tutorial. The consultants were great and I got to try a ton of new products. Here are my after pictures:

My consultant used the following products on me:

I ended up getting the Turnaround Concentrate, the Lash Building Primer and the Long Last Glosswear in Clearly Pink. After a few weeks of using the Turnaround Concentrate my skin has really balanced out, which is what I was hoping for.

I wanted to try the Lash Building Primer for a long time; it is really easy to use and I think it makes a huge difference in my regular mascara application. It makes your normal lashes fuller and more defined.

During my checkout they also threw in this adorable beach bag!

I had a great afternoon and think I made out like a bandit. Did anyone else go to the Meet the Experts event at Clinique? Have you had success with any of these products?

I hope the next bonus comes soon, because I have a great list of items to try out!

It’s Clinique Bonus Time!

At one point in my life I was obsessed with the Clinique Bonus. I signed up for their emails, I knew when and where the bonuses were and would plan out my shopping trips to capitalize on free stuff!

Fast forward to today and I have tried a lot of new brands and I like to mix it up, but there are still some Clinique staples I can’t live without.

This is an $80 value for a $30 minimum purchase – it’s a pretty good haul if you were already planning to get something anyways.

So, what do I need for $30? Here are some of my top picks to meet the minimum:

Clinique Colour Surge Eye Shadow Soft Shimmer in Sugar Sugar – $15

Clinique Sugar Sugar Eyeshadow

Clinique Sugar Sugar

This is one of my all time favorite products. I use this as a base on my eyes pretty much every day. I LOVE it! I will buy two just because I use it all the time.

Clinique Different Lipstick in Surprise – $15

Clinique Different Lipstick in Surprise

Clinique Different Lipstick in Surprise

Another one of my Clinique staples. I love their lipstick, it looks great on and it has a great moisturizing quality. This is one of my go to shades. It looks great at night and it is not too dark. I think this is probably the only lipstick that I have ever used to the very end (many times).

Clinique Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder Oil-Free – $22

Clinique Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder Oil-Free

Clinque Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder Oil-Free in Stay Buff

I have this in my purse in Stay Buff right now. It is great at taking away the shine in your t-zone mid-day.

Clinique Blended Face Powder & Brush – $22

Clinique Blended Face Powder

Clinique Blended Face Powder

I use this loose powder every day to set my look. I prefer the loose powder if I am at home and the pressed powder when I am on the go. I use a bigger powder brush at home but keep the little one in my purse.

Clinique Quick Blush – $23.50

Clinique Quick Blush

Clinique Quick Blush

I haven’t tried this one yet, but it is definitely on my list. What a genius idea! The color is inside the cap and when you pull the brush out it is ready to apply. This sounds like a great on-the-go item! I will definitely be adding this to my collection. I will keep you posted on my thoughts after I try it out.
