Clinique Chubby Stick Baby Tint Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm

Love major lippie moisture glazed with a teeny bit of colour? Clinique heard you! This September, Clinique’s launching another promising cult fave from the Chubby Stick franchise aptly called Baby Tint Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm.

(The) NEW Chubby Stick Baby Tint Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm works with a woman’s natural chemistry to give a revitalized look that will leave lips with the perfect amount of colour that is exactly right for her. Each shade is complementary to the wearer and will appear differently on everyone. Once applied, the colour blossoms to reach the precise intensity for the wearer. Each shade was appropriately named to describe this blossoming effect – Poppin’ Poppy, Coming Up Rosy, Budding Blossom, Flowering Fressia.

Infused with Vitamin C, Shea Butter, Mango Seed Butter and Jojoba Seed Oil, this formula delivers a surge of moisture leaving lips soft and supple. NEW Chubby Stick Baby Tint Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm is packaged in easy to use, crayon-like barrels that exude a sheerness, conveying the translucency of the formula. NEW Chubby Stick Baby Tint Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm allows for each woman’s individual beauty to shine through with a shade that is impeccably flawless and custom for her.

3-Step Instaflush!

My blown out, instaflush must-haves <3

Bobbi Brown once said “Nothing makes a woman look prettier than a pop of blush. It’s an instant lift and the quickest way to add a healthy glow to the face.”. I agree with her 101%! For drab days when I wake up late and don’t really have the luxury of time and energy to prettify to the nines, I solely depend on my blush and gloss before heading out the door. Recently, I added 3 steps (and products) in my makeup kit that I think y’all should also give a try since they’re able to not just give me a mini lift but also an even glow on the apples of my cheeks. The best part about it? They won’t take forever and a day to apply.

Fighting Blemishes with Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions

Days after I got back from Cebu, my skin went on a wild havoc. Mind you – there’s no exaggeration in here. My face broke out to heights unimaginable to me at this day and age when I thought I’d be finally done and over with red, angry pimples and zits

Apparently not with this kind of heat that profusely opens up the pores and just sucks everything right in. :(

I intended to buy a birthday present for a friend when I found myself lost in the Clinique Rustans Makati counter with their counter advisor Anya. I needed a 3-Step #3 travel size kit when she recommended that I give the Anti-Blemish Solutions a run for its money since it’s more apt for my skin condition. I still had plenty of their Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser so I opted out of the cleanser from this range and got the three products below instead.

Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Trio (left-right)
Clarifying Lotion (Php 1520)
All-Over Clearing Treatment (Php 1750)
Spot Treatment Gel (Php 1200)

First of all, this range is not exactly the cheapest solution to clear, sensitive skin. I shelled out a total of Php 4470, twice my derma’s usual cocktail price tag but only a third of the usual 9-11 step range. I was crossing my fingers that this will work for me because the last time I changed ranges, this happened.

Laser In A Bottle: Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus Serum

When you reach a certain age, you get to (hopefully) put acne control to the side and anti-aging to the forefront of your skincare program. While I still breakout once in a while (sigh!), I have pretty much slimmed down my skin care regimen to my non-negotiable basics that I toy around (by changing products ) with every 2-3 months.. They’re comprised of the following “essentials”:

  • Oil or water based makeup remover
  • Foaming cleanser when I get up, cream cleanser before going to bed
  • Oil control toner before going out/to work, alcohol-free toner at night
  • Eye cream
  • Oil-free, brightening emulsion to keep the freckles and sun spots at bay
  • Sunblock before going out/to work, moisturizer before going to bed
  • Hydrating mists in during lunch

Taking a cue from Brigitte, I recently added the Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus (serum, Php 3300 for 30ml and Php 4500 for 50ml) into my skin care regimen and I’m glad to share that I just purchased bottle #2. I wouldn’t be too definite that it will work on its own but it nicely married with my current regimen.
