My makeup shopping list!
Well now that you all know how paltry my makeup collection is I’m now ready to share my thoughts about what I would like purchase over the next few months. I’ve realised over the years that I’ve used all different brands of cosmetics from eye-watering expensive (Chantecaille) to cheap as chips (Barry M) but the one brand I’ve always gone back to time and time again is Clinique. I don’t know why but it’s like a comfort blanket and I think I should start with them for my basics and build my collection from there.
Clinique Chubby Sticks – I love the look of these. I don’t really like full on lipstick and these offer sheer moisturising colour in a convenient stick. These aren’t available in the UK as yet (possibly April/May) but I have seen a few you tube reviews from my fellow Americans that were quite positive.
Clinique Glossy Mascara – This may be an old standby but it works. I love Jet Brown – it’s a brown black that is perfect for women like me who want to use mascara during the day but still want it to look natural.
Clinique Super Fine Liner for Brows – This was recommended to me by Debbie from This week I have mostly been loving blog. She’s got great eyebrows and she did a blog post tutorial just for me which you can check out here.
Clinique Touch Base for Eyes – I’ve been out of the makeup game for so long I didn’t realise they still did this. It works great on it’s own to give your eyelids a bit of colour or as a primer for other eyeshadow. Even though I have oily skin I found that this used stay put on my eyes for most the day.
I’m sure there will be other things that I will put on this list as I finish up what I have. I’m not quite ready do a reveal sans makeup a la Katy Perry on Twitter just yet tho!
