my mini-hauls from origins and clinique during cyber monday.
i bought 2 origins quick hide! concealers. i’ve actually never use concealers before and thought i’ll try this one out because i like origins and they were having a $10 off $25 purchase, free shipping and of course free sample. i tested today when they arrived but i’m not sure of it yet. it doesn’t look bad but i’m afraid it may look “off”. we’ll see. i choose the active charcoal mask as the sample but haven’t try it so i’m looking forward to that.
as for clinique, i first saw the ad for their chubby sticks in the half dozen magazine subscriptions that come every month. they look so pretty and i’ve been wanting to try one. i have the holiday set of tarte’s lip surgence which is the same idea as the clinique chubby sticks and i love love them!! the tarte’s are very moisturizing and pigmented. when i saw that with any clinique order, you get free shipping and 3 deluxe samples, i jumped and ordered the chubby stick in mega melon for $15. the tarte ones run $24 a piece. for the 3 deluxe samples, i picked blushware cream stick in rosy, long last lipstick treat in bamboo pink (it looks like a full size tube), and super balm gloss treat in raspberry.
what i can say? i love love the chubby stick!! the color is awesome!! i really dig this shade. i’m so happy i picked mega melon and it is not a color i have so i’m glad. it is moisturizing just like the tarte, pigmented and forgiving so you can always do a few swipes for a really pigmented look. it is not sparkly but it does feel like a balm so it’s not matte either. i really love it!
i also tried the cream stick and it’s super pretty too! it’s pigmented so one swipe was enough for me. i have not tried the lipstick but i did swatched it on the back of my hand and it’s a nude purplish brown color. it seems moisturizing so i’ll see once i do put it on. i tested the gloss on my daughter and it’s a real pretty reddish pink clear gloss. again, really pretty! these did not disappoint.
(me in all my glory break outs) i’m wearing origins quick hide! concealer, clinique cream stick and chubby stick lipbalm
