Review: Clinique Modern Matte

Defining Liner for Lips ($14)- Makes lips beautiful by definition. Modern precision pencil with built-in sharpener in the cap creates the look you want, anywhere. Creamy, non-feathering formula goes on smoothly, evenly, stays all day. Even helps lipstick stay in place. I have Sugared Fig, it's a a coppery pink that makes my lips a little bit lighter than they really are. It goes on smooth and creamy and I have to admit that I am smitten with the built in sharpener thing. Perfection.

Blushwear Cream Stick
($18.50)- Cream-to-powder blush stick glides on colour for a natural all-day glow. Blends easily with fingertips to desired intensity and coverage. Non-drying, oil free. I have Very Blush. I apply a dot to each cheek and blend it in. It's very pigmented and creamy. I don't even feel the need to apply powder over it for staying power.

Colour Surge Eye Shadow Stay Matte ($14)- Our softest, smoothest, richest matte shadow creates elegant intensity in one stroke. Surprisingly lightweight, long-wearing. Ophthalmologist tested for even the most sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. I was drawn to Midnight. I thought it was kind of hard to get as much color as I wanted, but it's good for people who are new to a smoky eye. You can't really over-do it with Midnight. It's subtle.

High Impact Lip Colour SPF 15 ($14)-
High on colour, long on comfort. Dressed-up colour wears beautifully for 8 hours. And lips enjoy every minute. In 20 highly moisturizing shades that continually smooth, soften, comfort. Protect from UVA/UVB, too. Have it all.
Available in 20 different shades. I have Go Fig. It's a medium berry shade. Clinique lipstick is awesome. It's creamy and doesn't smell or taste weird, like some. I kind of forget it's there at all. Extra points for the sleek, silver banded tube.

Face Candy Grade: A

High Impact Mascara ($14)-
Kicks up the volume and length of each and every lash for a look that's lusher, plusher, bolder. Pure, deep colour only adds to the impact. Wear it once and you'll feel naked without it. When I was 13 I was so in love with the Naturally Glossy Mascara. This is thicker and much more "look at me" than Naturally Glossy. The thick brush makes it a little more difficult to get at the corner lashes, but wiggle it through the ones in the middle, and that's all you need. I personally found that it clumped after 2 coats, which I didn't like.

Face Candy Grade: C

Available in:
-Black/Brown
-Black
