Clinique’s (new) Pink Chocolates Holiday Collection has been the subject of many posts in the beauty blog circuit – all of them boasting that it’s full of shimmer and glow. While I do really like the Shimmering Tones Powder (what can be bad about Shimmering Powder), I have to say that I’m quite disappointed with the Cream Liner for various reasons. First off, the color isn’t rich or full at all. In order to get a bold brown color, I have to re-draw my line at least twice, sometimes more. The first application the color looks sheer and lacking. Since I have trouble getting the line exactly how I like it, this makes the task that much harder for me, espeically when I’m trying to get out the door to go to work. Secondly, the reason why I bought it was because of the lustre – I’m a fan of the sparkles and at first glance, the added gold shimmer/sparkle georgous. However, when worn, the sparkles aren’t visible at all – quite disappointing. So, the Beauty Bug is 1 for 2 with the Clinique Pink Chocolates Collection. If she had all the money in the world to spend on cosmetics, The Beauty Bug would next try Eye Shadow Quad.
For those who are looking for a good eye liner, I recommend MAC’s Fluidline Eye liner. It’s an ultra-smooth gel and while it stays put during the day, it comes off easily with makeup remover.
