Bridal Beauty - Review: Clinique

I love Clinique. As a girl, it was one of the very first brands I noticed. I think the fact that its 100% fragrance free and allergy tested, plus the prices are and always have been rather reasonable.

-Long Last Glosswear SPF 15 ($14)- This lip gloss claims to provide 8 hours of lasting shine. I personally have not experienced this sort of wear. I'd say it lasts about as long as any other gloss (not long enough) about an hour or a little more. Otherwise, the texture is medium- kind of like Stila's Lip Glaze. Guavagold is a sheer pale pink with a gold sheen. The color is AWESOME. It warms up my skin and I like that the gold is so subtle.
Face Candy Grade: B+

-Almost Powder Makeup SPF 15 ($22.50)- A long-wear, lightweight powder full of antioxidants and an SPF 15. Neutral was the right color for me. I constantly carry this around with me for quick touch-ups. The powder covers like a foundation, evening skin and eliminating oil.
Face Candy Grade: A+

-Quick Eyes Cream Shadow ($15)- A creamy, velvety, crease-proof eye shadow that claims to last up to 10 hours. Apply a lot or a little. I like to use 5 thick dots across the middle of my lid and then sweep the applicator along the bottom and blend with my finger. Muffin is a shimmering taupe. All of the colors look beautiful (I kind of want them all.) Perfect for on the go application. I find if I use Urban Decay Primer Potion, it does last about 8 hours with minimal fading.
Face Candy Grade: A
