Clinique isn't exactly what I'd call "affordable", however they do run lots of nice GWP deals at various retailers and on their own website quite frequently, so there's always a nice deal right around the corner if you don't like what's currently being offered. That said, I just wanted to take a sec to share with you some brand new products that are now on my radar!
Thanks to reader @jessfedup for the tip that the new limited edition Crayola for Clinique Chubby Sticks collection is now available on the Clinique website here. How cute are these??
There are four different options:
- Set of 4 minis for $25 (pictured above)
- Set of 8 minis for $49.50
- Full-size Chubby Sticks for Lips for $17 each
- Full-size Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balms for $17 each
Last night when I was looking through the New Arrivals on the Ulta site, I was shocked to see these new Clinique BIY Blend It Yourself Pigment Drops. I had no idea Clinique was coming out with these, did you? They retail for $33 for 0.34 oz. and come in 12 shades. So many brands are coming out with their version of the Cover FX drops right now, it's hard to decide which ones to try!
For reference, the Cover FX Custom Color Drops retail for $44 each for 0.5 oz. To break that down, you're paying $88 per ounce for the Cover FX version, and about $97 per ounce for the Clinique version. So the Cover FX version is actually more economical, but I know that some of you don't care for the Cover FX formula, so I wanted to be sure you knew about this new Clinique version. I seem to have very good luck with Clinique face makeup, so I'm curious about these. But of course if you're looking for a more economical alternative, the Hard Candy Glamoflauge Mix-In Pigment Makeup Drops are $7 each for 0.5 oz. and the NYX Total Control Drop Foundation is $13.99 for 0.43 oz. Although I do want to mention that the NYX foundation doesn't specify that you should mix the formula with another foundation, moisturizer, etc. I'm guessing that you can, but it is described as a stand-alone foundation that you can control in terms of coverage by adding more or less drops. Oh, and The Body Shop has Shade Adjusting Drops for $20 for $0.5 oz. (as of the time of publication, they're on sale for B2G1FREE or B3G2FREE).
NOTE: If you decide to purchase the new Clinique BIY Pigment Drops at Ulta, right now you will receive a free deluxe sample Moisture Surge with any $30 online Clinique purchase (valid through 1/7/17). And don't forget to add this deluxe freebie to your cart (free with ANY online order; just add to your cart and once you add anything else, it will go from $5 to free).
So let's hear it! What do you think of these new offerings from Clinique?
