March 2017 Dillard’s Clinique Gift With Purchase Review

March 3rd is the first day of the Dillard’s Clinique Gift With Purchase. If you spend $28 your get a 7 piece gift and if you spend $55 you can add the repair duo or the contouring team. It’s a “while supplies last” event.


Here’s what you get!

You get a choice of 2 eyeshadow and lipstick combos. I went for choice #2. In choice #1 you get the Starlight Starbright Eyeshadow Duo and the Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer in Love Pop.

The Bag – I really love this bag. It’s got a cute lipstick and lips pattern that’s really pretty.

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+ – This is a Clinique staple that I don’t actually use everyday but it’s a great product. I will definitely regift this one.

Clinique Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser – I love this cleanser. It great for removing make-up and it leaves my face fresh and soft.

Clinique Superbalanced™ Silk Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 – This is actually a new product. I didn’t realize this when I was doing my video because the packaging is the same as the Superbalance Makeup. You’re also supposed to get a choice of 4 shades with your gift. The woman at the Clinique counter didn’t give me a choice, maybe she was just guessing based on my skin tone but if I get anther gift I’m going to request the Silk Ivory. I got the Silk Canvas with  my gift.

Clinique All About Shadow in Beach Plum – I think this is my favorite item in the gift. I love the Clinique Eyeshadows and the purple in this one is so pretty.

Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer in Plum Pop – I really love this lipstick. It feels very soft and creamy and the pigmentation is amazing.

Clinique High Impact Mascara – This is one of my favorite mascaras. It gives me big bold lashes and it never clumps. I also like the samples because they last about a month which is about how long I keep mascara…I’m a big germaphobe!

Overall I think this is a great gift. The eyeshadow, lipstick and mascara make the bag.

I also created a YouTube video of the “unbagging” in my new space! I’ve even got some Stranger Things inspired lights going on.

Clinique Sculptionary Cheek Contouring Palette Review (and I got a free gift)

Today I picked up the Clinique Sculptionary Cheek Contouring Palette because I love getting the “Gift with Purchase” at Dillard’s. I got the Defining Berries shade.


What’s to love?

The Sculptionary Palette gives you 3 coordinating colors including a color, contour and highlight. You can swirl the colors together or use separately. However I find it hard to separate out colors in a connected palette like this. If you’re looking for more separated colors I recommend the Smashbox L.A. Lights Blush & Highlighter.

The powder in this palette is very high quality and goes on smooth and easy. I swatched the colors below in direct sunlight so they are a bit darker than the photo. However I’d say this is a lighter palette than the Smashbox one. The shades do have a nice light shimmer which I love and the formula works well on my oily skin.

This palette is $33 which I think is well worth the price especially when you get the “Gift With Purchase”. I never buy Clinique at the counter without getting a gift.

The formula is 100% Fragrance-Free and I’ve never had problems with irritation with any Clinique product.

So if you’re looking for a trio blush I would definitely add this to your list of ones to check out.

 My Gift With Purchase!

I am so excited to get another High Impact Mascara, I’ll be reviewing that soon. I also want to the the Clinique Pop Lacquer Lip Color. I’ll report back on these items soon.

The bag is also super cute with brightly colored strips and is one of my favorite Clinique bag designs.
