Don’t you just love gifts with purchase?! It is a great way to trial other products that you wouldn’t usually purchase. I have discovered some incredible products just from receiving generous samples and most of my cosmetics bags are from these deals. I was lucky enough to get my grubby mitts on Clinique’s current GWP available from David Jones. Lets have a little peak inside…
First off, how adorable are these make-up bags?! Not one, but two! Adorned with gorgeous beauty products, they’re so bright and fun, but also so practical. Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion is one of my all time favourite daily moisturisers. It is so light, absorbs like a dream and so perfect for under make up. I would never have guessed that something so light would be so hydrating. Next up is another favourite of mine, the Take The Day Off Makeup Remover. This little guy glides over the skin removing all traces of eye makeup – waterproof mascara and all. I like to use this before going in with a cleansing oil. The size of this bottle is just ideal, and with a spill proof lid, it is just perfect for travel. I also received huge samples of Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle Correcrting Eye Cream and Repairwear Laser Focus Night Line Smoothing Cream. I am so excited to give these a go. seriously, these jars are not that much smaller than my usual night and eyecreams. I have read really good reviews on both of these products and can’t wait to incorporate into my daily skincare routine.
Next up is Blushing Blush in Precious Posey, let me just say the packaging is giving me life. It is so sleek and elegant. The top is a beautiful silver reflective surface with Clinique embossed in white. Inside a huge mirror and huge pan. The colour is stunning, a beautiful natural peachy pink with a slight shimmer. Very reminiscent of Nars Orgasm. If is it anything like Clinique’s other range of blushes, it’ll be really long-lasting. The stunning Long Last Soft Matte lipstick is also included in the shade magenta. This is my kind of shade. The formula is creamy, easy to apply and not drying. It is matte but I find that it has a nice sheen to it, which makes it so comfortable on the lips. This little guy is going straight in my lipstick drawer. Lastly, is a sample of the new Aromatics Perfume Spray in White. When I first sprayed this I thought of my grandma, a strong powdery floral scent. However as it settled on my skin, I absolutely loved it. It is fresh and subtle, full of soft florals yet smells a little like clean sheets. Now bear with me, I am pretty pathetic at describing perfumes, but this is actually really lovely. It makes me think of crisp white collared shirts, fresh air and spring. Next time you are in-store give it a little spray and smell it 5 minutes later, don’t go by the initial scent.
All of that for free? Incredible and so generous. This perk is available from David Jones with any Clinique purchase over $60 and is available until May 15th.
