As you already know from my previous articles Clinique has launched a couple of new products for Summer 2013 that will be finally available in Romania this month. The other day I received a couple of these products for testing and review purposes so before I will post my individual reviews I wanted to make a quick preview article and show you what are the novelties for this summer and what I’ll be reviewing in the upcoming weeks.
Clinique CC Cream SPF 50 (official info & promo photos) is available in US since March 2013 at Clinique counters and online @clinique.com and in Romania it will be available exclusively at Sephora in June and July and afterwards it can be found also at Douglas, Marionnaud and B&B. The new Clinique CC Cream comes in a 40 ml/ 1.4 fl oz tube and retails for $35.00/ 117.00 Lei. I received the shade light medium and I hope it will match my light complexion as I haven’t yet tried this product. I’m planning on wearing it a couple of times and hopefully next week I will post my review.
Clinique Summer 2013 Nail Enamel Collection for Sensitive Skins (official info & photos) features 9 new limited edition shades and 12 new nail colors that will be part of the permanent collection. In U.S. The Different Nail Enamels for Sensitive Skins are available since April, while in UK they were available exclusively at Debenhams since 12 May (Special post with photos from the press launch event) and released in all the beauty shops starting 31 May 2013. In Romania the release date is settled for early June 2013 at Sephora, Douglas, Marionnaud and B&B but also at the official Estee Lauder Boutique on Calea Victoriei. One Clinique different enamel contains 9 ml/ 0.3 fl oz and retails for $16.00/ £12.00/ 75.00 Lei.
The two nail colors I received are #06 Happy, a beautiful deep and pigmented coral red which is part of the permanent collection and #18 Juiced Up which is a limited edition coral shade but more on the orange side. Both colors are very bright and pigmented and would look great on any skin tone. I’m currently wearing the color Happy on my nails since yesterday so at the beginning of next week I will give you my review.
I also received a Clinique Bonus Box with a few products as deluxe sample size. One them is a red lipstick in #13 Flamenco that I will be reviewing separately in the upcoming days. Another product is Clinique Superdefense SPF 25 Age Defense Moisturizer that I used a couple of years ago and I repurchase it two times and next year I also used Clinique Youth Surge Night Age Decelerating Night Moisturizer (full review & photos). Clinique All About Eyes was the third product I found in the bonus box and I used this product also in my early 20s for a couple of years It’s a great product if you are looking for a light eye moisturizer that will help reduce your puffs and dark circles but I moved to a more complex eye cream a few years later when I needed something that is also anti-aging. Other surprises included in the Clinique Bonus Box were two deluxe sample size of Liquid Facial Mild Soap for dry and combination skin type and Superbalanced Makeup in #05 Vanilla. The mild soap is also a product known to me since I was a teenager and I do really recommended since it helped me clean my face very well and keep those zits and pimples away in my teen years but it also did a good job with controlling my oily face. The last product I got is a double side white compact mirror that I will be carrying in my purse with me this summer.
