Clinique Super Primers Review

Hello beauties!

The temperature has started to drop, the first raindrops have fallen and our warm cardigans have left the back self.

But thanks to Clinique I am back with a post full of color!

This September they launched new products, new textures and new colors!

Let me show you.

Clinique Super Primers *




From top,

Universal Face Primer : neutral shade that suits all skin types without any serious skin trouble.
Colour Corrects Dullness: subtle pink shade primer that claims to brighten the skin.
Colour Corrects Redness: pale yellowy primer that neutralises any redness going on.
Colour Corrects Discolourations: pale peach primer that offers an even skin tone when dark spots and acne scars occur.

It is a line of soft textured face primers, each one targeting different need of our skin.

They are oil free, contain silicon of course which make your pores and fine lines appear smaller while at the same time prepare your skin for the foundation.




I have tried on my skin all four of them. The one I liked the least was the Universal one. It doesn't feel much of a primer on my skin.

In the contrary, the other three do a real primer's job. The feel and act like proper primers. They smooth my skin and mattify it. The foundation blends like a dream. Can't spot a difference between the three regarding their color colors but maybe that's just me.

Overall a really good primers line. Well done Clinique.

Retail price 28,50 €

Do you use primer? Have you tried one of those?

I will be back with more news from Clinique soon!


as always

stay healthy & beautiful

Mac & Sephora Eye Brighteners! Lighten Up Your Eyes!



Hello everyone! 

How have you been doing?

Is the season transition makes you feel a bit sleepless and tired? 
And the worse…does it shows in your eyes? 

Well if this is the case, boy I have good news for you! 

Eye Brighteners! 

If anyone of you has not heard of them before, let me give you a heads up.
Eye brighteners are light textured colored cremes that go very smoothly under the eyes. 

Their main goal is not to cover your dark circles but to brighten and light reflect the under eye area, creating a more fresh and clean appearance.

I don’t have any dark circles so this is perfect for me. But it is also useful for the ones that have, by using a light layer of corrector (peachy), concealer (beige) and brightener (light pink) which you will success by applying a small amount of each to have a natural highlighted under eye area.

The ones I have and use are:

 MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter Pen in Bright Forecast & the
 Sephora Smoothing & Brightening Concealer in 03 light.










As you can see from the photos the one is really yellowy and the other is rather light pink.
The yellow tone is more suitable for darker skins and the light pink one is perfect for fair skins.

I use to mix them together and I end up having the perfect highlighting shade for my skin.
It is almost like second skin. 




I bought both of them on sale so I am not sure what their price is but I can tell you approximately that the MAC is about 20-22 euro and the Sephora is about 10-12 euro.
 
Their quality is equally good even though there is a big price gap! 

So, what do you think? Do you use eye brighteners?
If so, which one? I am open to suggestions!

Stay healthy & beautiful!
