Clinique 'Bonus Time' Smokey Eye Palette

As most of you are aware, I’m a total sucker for a ‘gift with purchase’ – especially the Clinique Bonus Time. I literally have hundreds of mini bottles and tubes and they’re invaluable for me when I travel abroad for shoots. This particular Bonus Time really caught my eye because I loved the eye palette – the instructions on the compact’s mirror, the cleverly selected eyeshadow shades…

I should have done the below video a long time ago, so I apologise – this Bonus Time is running until Saturday at Debenhams stores nationwide. If you need to stock up on a few essentials then now is a good time to do it – I think you’ll agree when you see how the eye colours look! For those of you who want to create the same look but miss the offer, the shades used are as follows: Super Shimmer in ‘Daybreak’, Eye Shadow (from a duo) in Strawberry Fudge, Stay Matte shadow in Chocolate Chip. They’re a really great combination and create a rich, shimmery daytime eye.

So hurry hurry hurry down to Debenhams – hopefully Clinique will produce more clever little palettes for their Bonus Times!

Clinique Smokey Eye Palette, free with Bonus Time at Debenhams until October 30th 2010.

    Love Clinique bonus times and always stock up on their products then.

    Bought the All About Lips that you recommended and really like how my lips feel after I put lipstick on, so kudos! Have you any other top Clinique products? I tried to get the anti-blemish gel which you also wrote about, but unfortunately they were out of stock.

    I swore off nude eyeshadow purchases after my Naked palette, but since this is free, it obviously does not count.

      Exactly! It’s kind of a shimmery champagne though, not really a nude… Most nude shadows are rather pointless! xx

    Gorgeous look! Trying to do something similar with my Bobbi Brown cool eye palette but this will make it easier so thanks! I’ve used airbrush concealer for ages its great, do you think its worth changin to YSL though? :)

      Hmmm, they are quite different… I think that the Airbrush is slightly better as a concealer and the YSL Touche Eclat is better as a radiance booster…
