Spring is kick starting with some awesome new releases from Clinique that made me tingle with excitement: neutral eye shadows, fresh yummy scents and a new eye cream with high SPF – whats not to love!
Probably the most talked about release is the new eyeshadow palette Neutral Territory 2, a grown up version of wearable brown nudes, soft to touch and uber pigmented. You all know how much i love the Clinique eye shadows (see here and here), the color payoff is great and the shade selection wide and wearable. Being a limited edition, be quick and grab one – this one is going to fly for sure.
Another exciting release is the new Superdefense Age Defense SPF 20 Eye Cream – a hydrating eye cream with a more than decent sunscreen, that protects and prevents against the early signs of aging due to environmental damage.
Eye sunscreen is so hard to find, so a good quality, allergy tested one is exactly what we need for a wrinkle and pigmentation free eye area. The texture is slightly tinted, which means it will gently brighten and help hide the under eye darkness and the cream formula means that it wont migrate in the eye to cause irritation.
Finally, no new season would be complete without a new fragrance to be added to the scent wardrobe.
With exhilarating notes, Calyx will transport you to Mediterranean shores, lightly scenting your skin with notes of grapefruit and orange blossoms. Previously a Prescripties product, Calyx matched the Clinique philosophy so well that had to be part of the family, joining the cult Happy and Aromatics collections.
I am absolutely in love with it! Matches my easy going personality and it is my go to ‘work’ clean scent, it uplifts the mood and adds sweetness to Monday mornings. To compare, it will probably be in the same lines of Lancome Eau Tonique, Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue or Dior Portofino. Clean, fresh and crisp, just how i like it.
Clinique Neutral Territory 2 available from 7th February €39. Calyx Eau de Parfum available from 7th of February - 100ml €85/ 50ml €62. Superdefence SPF 20 Eye Cream €39.
