Clinique Almost Lipstick

Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

There’s really nothing almost about this product. It was definitely one of the best new products to hit beauty counters last month and its origins are  deeply rooted in cosmetic history. The Almost Lipstick craze started in 1989 with the cult-classic Black Honey (two words that will get any beauty junkie visibly excited). Fast forward [...]

Smooth Moves with Clinique’s High Lengths Mascara

Tuesday, March 16th, 2010

Sometimes, unfortunately, life gets in the way and The Beauty Bug is too stressed, too busy, too preoccupied,  and just plain not feeling like Herself (or all of the above) to be able to write and focus…but then a mascara comes along, cheers Her up, and puts The Beauty Bug back on track. Enter Clinique’s [...]

Clinique’s Lash Power Mascara

Wednesday, February 20th, 2008

Tired, cold and sluggish – those three words pretty accurately describe The Beauty Bug these past 2 weeks. She’s been yawning so much, She’s going to start catching flies. Not only that…the excessive yawning causes Her eyes to tear, which doesn’t bode well for her eye makeup. Lucky for Her, She’s been wearing Clinique’s new [...]

The Estée Lauder Mascara Promotion That Wasn’t…

Saturday, March 10th, 2007

The Beauty Bug recently received an email from Allure and Estée Lauder, as well as a postcard in the mail both offering her a free sample of Estée Lauder’s new Projectionist High Definition Volume Mascara. She has tried Estée’s mascaras in the past, and wasn’t really a fan, but thought this one could have potential. [...]

Clinique’s Cream Liner in Chocolate Lustre

Monday, November 27th, 2006

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.

In the past 10 years the only item that I’ve purchased from Clinique is their Turnaround 15 Minute Facial. I bought it after reading about it in Allure. They just aren’t and never really were on my makeup and skin care radar. For some reason, I associate them and their products with older women – [...]
