Clinique Skincare and Makeup

Hello Everyone!


Clinique is one of my favorite high end skincare and makeup brands.I have a long history with this brand! Depending on what you're buying Clinique can be a little pricey, but for the most part I've been able to save money with Clinique recently sending a few products and discount/rewards at Ulta. All the Clinique Links below are from Ulta's website.  

Clinique Skincare


I remember using a few of my mama's Clinique products when I was a teenager. I may have even snuck a few of my mom's Clinique skincare products when I went off to college lol. The skincare products below in asterisks were sent to me from Clinique except for one of the of the towelettes.


* Clinique Take the Day Off Micellar Cleansing Towelettes for Face & Eyes

* Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover For Lids, Lashes & Lips

* Clinique Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly 1.7 oz Tube 

In speaking of the towelettes, they're really good to use to remove makeup or to refresh your face. These are going to be good to use during the Summer. I also like these towelettes don't leave my face feeling dry. I do think the towelettes are a little pricey ($14.50), but they're worth it.


I absolutely love the makeup remover! If you use liquid lipstick or lipstick that stains this will makeup remover will take it off easily.
I've been using the samples of the hydrating jelly and my skin feels so hydrated. I'm glad this product lives up to it's claims. You can use this before you put on your makeup, but I typically like to use this at night or in the morning after I cleanse my face.


Clinique Clarifying Lotion 1- Very Dry to Dry 6.7 oz

Clinique Clarifying Lotion 2- Dry Combination 6.7 oz

Clinique Clarifying Lotion 3- Combination Oily 6.7 oz

Clinique Clarifying Lotion 4 - For Oily Skin 6.7 oz


In my opinion to have flawless makeup you should have a skincare routine. Using a good cleanser helps decrease oil and bacteria. I usually have combination skin, but I think it's good to have all four clarifying lotions. When my skin is oily, the cleanser reduces oil without making my skin feel dry. When my skin is dry the cleanser replenishes hydration.

Clinique Makeup


Clinique Even Better Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 (WN 98 Cream Caramel: medium, warm-neutral undertones)

Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer (Cream Caramel: medium, warm-neutral undertones)

Clinique Stay Matte Sheer Pressed Powder (04 Stay Honey)


A few months ago I was looking for a few new foundations and makeup powders to try. When I went to Ulta, I asked for a few samples for two different Clinique foundations. After using each foundation sample for about a week, I went back to get the full sized bottles. I love how Clinique's foundation feels and looks natural on my face. Since it's already hot and humid here, these lightweight foundations will be good to using during the Summer.

What are your favorite Clinique Products?

You know, I use the Clinique foundation make-up. It goes on silky smooth, and I've used it for years. These cleansers look nice. I'd love to try them sometime. You have much knowledge with the Clinique products. My best friend used to work in the Clinique dept.

Thank you for your comment on my Mother's Day post, Pilar. It was so special to me.

That makeup remover sounds really good. I used to use Clinique products a lot when I was in my 20's but I've moved on so I don't really have any favorites now.

Ivana Split said...

a good make up remover makes our life much easier and this one by Clinque sounds like a winner. Lovely reviews.

Susie said...

I would love some of those towelettes. I know that a good brand of face cleansers have a wonderful fresh scent also. I laughed about you sneaking your mom's things. All these are working well for you...but then you are a beauty my friend. Now give your mom some of your nice new things. :) Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

Nice collection. I typically use Estee Lauder, Elemis, Dermalogica, and Kiehl's when it comes to skincare. However, I'm open to trying something new. Thanks for sharing your fabulous review.

Clinique is an amazing brand! I've been using their skincare products for a long time! I need to try a few makeup products from Clinique!

Marie said...

Have you tried the Clinique Matte Foundation?

Pilar said...

You're welcome Sheri! I hope you and your girls are having a great Mother's Day! This is my first time using the Clinique Foundations. I have to say I like both. I love how natural looking these foundations are on my skin and I agree these foundation apply smoothly. I've been using Clinique Skincare for years. The brand has so many amazing products for skincare! Lucky you that your best friend worked at Clinique! I'm sure she probably gave you great skincare and makeup tips etc! Clinique also has amazing samples!

Pilar said...

Thanks Marisa, and I agree!

Pilar said...

Thanks Sakruanko!

Pilar said...

Thanks!

Pilar said...

Thanks!

Pilar said...

The Clinique Makeup remover is one of the best makeup removers that I've used in my skincare routine! The makeup remover is now a holy grail for remover lipstick, especially stubborn liquid lipstick that can stain.

Pilar said...

Thanks Ivana!

Pilar said...

Aww Thanks Susie! My mom caught on very quickly about her Clinique products being "borrowed" lol. She's so sweet though because she know that I was college student on a budget, so she got me a Clinique skincare set of my own. Oh how I cherished that set! I definitely gave my mom a few of the Clinique products and samples :)

Pilar said...

Clinique is such a great brand! Now I love the makeup products too!

Pilar said...

You're welcome!

Pilar said...

I agree!

Pilar said...

Thanks, and you're welcome!

Pilar said...

I agree! Clinique is an amazing brand! Even though Clinique's a high end brand, most of the products are reasonable priced and great quality!

Pilar said...

I haven't tried the matte foundation yet. I think you're taking about the foundation in the tube? Since my skin gets a little oily in the Summer, I may try to that foundation to see if it works for my skin.

Marie said...

That's the foundation. I saw the foundation at Ulta, but I didn't get it at the time. Let me know how it works if you get the matte foundation.

Pilar said...

If I get the other Clinique foundation, I'll probably write a review. I've heard good things about that matte foundation
