Discovering Clinique

I've only just got round to trying anything from Clinique. I always presumed it was an over-priced and probably over-hyped brand, that I would never really pick up and pay for myself. I've suddenly found myself with a little collection of skincare and makeup bits after Christmas and my birthday which has now really given me a taste of the brand, and possibly changed my mind..

Firstly, is the Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush which I recently spoke about in my Current Skincare Favourites post. I use this every evening and it's now a must have in my routine. I have the full size Foaming Facial Wash to use along with it as well as a miniature of the Mild Liquid Facial Soap which both equally work as well. The mild soap is stage 1 in part of the 3-Step Skincare that Clinique offer, along with stage 2 which is the Clarifying Lotion and stage 3 which is the Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion. I've not properly stuck to the 3-step system and have mainly been using just the soap followed by some other products so I'm yet to test it out properly. I also have 2 lovely pink pots of moisturiser, the smaller one being All about Eyes and the other is Moisture Surge, which I've particularly become to love.

Onto makeup, I first discovered this Beyond Perfecting Foundation a few months ago, but have only just got the full sized bottle. I'm going to do a full review on it soon with swatches so I won't go too in depth about it now, but it's my current go to for evening or night out makeup. I've got a miniature High Impact Mascara which I'm actually really liking for a more natural look for work or on lazy days. It also washes off super easy compared to my regular Lash Sensational which can take a while to budge. I also have a Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick which I can't seem to find separately online, I think it was a freebie. It's quite a bright pink for me, probably about as bright as I'd go. I do like the formula however, it's really creamy but still matte and doesn't budge on your lips.

All these products are currently on trial, minus a few which I've already come to love (the foundation, cleansing brush and moisture surge) but so far so good. I like how they produce not only good quality skincare but makeup too as some brands can be a bit hit or miss when doing both.

Have you ever tried Clinique? What are your favourite products from the brand?
