clinique bonus time january 2015

If you’re intent on overhauling your beauty cabinet this January then now is the time: Clinique have a gorgeous gift available at their Covent Garden store, available with the purchase of two or more Clinique products*. The gift includes a mini of one of my favourite shades in the Pop Lip Colour and Primer line-up, “Melon Pop” (you can read by rave about those lipsticks here) and a brilliant shadow duo in “Black Honey and Amber” as well as a High Impact mascara (3.5ml), Rinse Off Foaming Cleanser (30ml), Dramatically Different Moisturiser+ (30ml) and Repairwear Laser Focus Eye Cream (5ml). Everything comes presented in a colourful makeup bag designed in collaboration with Kapitza Studio, who make brilliant geometric art for interiors and fashion textiles.

I find beauty miniatures irresistible (as you would find out if you ever poked about in my office drawers, which are full to the brim with tiny tubes of face cream and dinky perfume bottles and little glass pots of this and that) and I entirely blame Clinique for this particular addiction, because it was their “Bonus Time” gifts that got me hooked in my late teens!

I loved being able to discover new products and – as an incorrigible beauty addict – I liked the excuse to treat myself to a couple of things knowing that I was getting even more stuff to play about with at home. Though I’m pretty sure that the makeup offerings when I was a teen were never quite so tempting as they are these days; just look at this Melon Pop Lip Color:

So bright and cheerful for these dismal winter days. The formula is rich and buttery and feels comforting on crackled weather-beaten lips, but the colour is vibrant and bold. Just gorgeous.

And the All About Shadow duo is very wearable and flattering; below I’ve used the lighter shade as a wash across the lid and the darker to add depth and define the lashline slightly. I’ve finished off with a couple of coats of the High Impact Mascara…
