Best summer beauty discoveries featuring Clinique

2016-06-16 10.56.28 2

Hello Ladies

Yesterday was the official start of the summer season and i could not be more excited about it, even though for now my plans for the summer are not something major. Staying put in Brooklyn with my little family and just taking day by day sounds good to me for now. Anyways on to some beauty talk. Last week to my utter surprise i got a big package delivered from Clinique!! You should have seen my 5 year old – excitement dance when opening that package and wowing over the beauty products i always wanted to try. So here is my review on the products and a MUST HAVE shopping list with all things beauty.

Clinique Sun-Kissed Face Gelee
A brand new product that was just released! I would say this is similar to a self tanner. When applying you do need to mix it with either a moisturizer or foundation as it is a stain-like gel. It gives a beautiful summer glow to your skin and makes any pale face look sun kissed. A total must have for the summer!

Clinique Pep Start Eye cream
This lightweight eye cream that comes in a practical roller ball tube, provides a rush of hydration and instant brightening so you look and feel refreshed, wide awake, and ready for anything in less than 3 seconds. The formula contains peptides which helps support natural collagen reserves that can be threatened by stress, fatigue, and lack of sleep.



Sweet Pots Sugar Scrub
I always wanted to try this! I am a huge fan of a 2 in 1 product and this is a dual-sided lip treat with a sugar-smoothing scrub on one side and a tinted moisturizing balm on the other. My lips are always dry and i regularly need to moisturize them having a scrub and moisturizer all in one is awesome!

Clinique Pop Lipstick
I am very particular when it comes to lipsticks. These are combined with a primer and are extremely velvety and creamy. They do last a long time and do not tend to dry out my lips. They come in very vibrant hues which is great for a summer day at the pool.

Clinique Lip Lacquer
If you know me you know me by only wearing matte or creamy lipstick. I tend to stay away from gloss and lipgloss. I do not like the sticky feeling on my lips. But this one is something between a lipstain and a lipgloss. It is more tinted then glossy but it still leaves a great amount of gloss and shimmer on your lips.

I hope you fell in love with these products as much as i did and maybe on your next trip to sephora you will try some of them out. Let me know if you have any of them and how you like them i always love hearing your take on the beauty products i love.

Happy Summer ladies xx

Love. toby

    Great picks! I just picked up the eye cream & lipstick from Clinique! I’m so obsessed with their ‘Take the Day Off’ balm too. I strayed away from the brand for a few years but I’m so glad I’ve rediscovered my love for them!
