It’s the first day of May, so I’m shifting the focus now to another of my absolute favorite beauty brands. Last month I did a feature on MAC, and now I’m introducing this month’s Brand Spotlight on Clinique! I’ve talked about my love for a lot of Clinique products on here before, so I couldn’t resist giving them a little moment in the sun.

So just as with last month’s Brand Spotlight I will post three articles every Wednesday, but this time with a Clinique focus. Each will highlight either a tried-and-true favorite product, or conversely a newer one that has been added to my collection.
It’s very rare that I can say that I love both a brand’s skincare & makeup items, but in this case I can. Clinique skincare is a hallmark in the industry and for good reason. They target a huge swath of skin concerns from acne and anti-aging, to sun protection and oil control. Their products are 100% fragrance free and well-suited to sensitive skin types. I always trust my skin to Clinique; I’ve never reacted or broken out as a result of using their products.
Check out their main webpage if you want to see what some of their bestselling skincare products are. I’ve talked about my love for their Moisture Surge range in a previous post on my current skincare routine, which is linked below. I’ve now got my eye on the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+ as my next skincare purchase from them!

Conversely, I feel like Clinique’s makeup doesn’t get a lot of attention or hype in the beauty community when it should. Perhaps this is a consequence of having such a comprehensive skincare range, but I’m not sure. Regardless, it’s a real shame because their makeup is great quality and their colors are so soft and wearable. You all know I have a thing for stick makeup, and Clinique has that area covered very thoroughly, from lipstick, to foundation, contour, and highlight. I believe they actually started the whole lipstick-as-a-crayon trend when they released the Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Coloured Balms ages ago.
