CLINIQUE Lid Pop Eyeshadow Swatches & Review (Cream Pop / Cocoa Pop)

I have always been a fan of CLINIQUE skincare. It’s been years since opening my very first bottle of their world-renowned Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion/Gel (I have since switched to their Moisture Surge and have expanded my skincare repertoire). CLINIQUE prides itself in producing high quality goods which are allergy tested and 100% fragrance free – this includes their colour makeup lines.

My very first experience with their makeup is from Bonus sets (if you’re from Canada you will recognize this at Hudson’s Bay, Sears, Nordstrom etc.). I often enjoyed their mascaras and eyeshadow duo/trios. Not too long ago, CLINIQUE came out with 8 individual eyeshadow shades to compliment their POP collection : CLINIQUE Lid Pop.

//CLOSED//GIVEAWAY : Instagram


I wanted to do a giveaway that, in essence, represents who I am. The very first makeup product I adored using were eyeshadows. I liked using something a tint lighter than my skin tone and that was all. Then I snatched the black eyeliner. These are my go-to products which began when I was a student in university when going out and even to this day if I have extra time in the morning for work. A matte neutral eye with a natural cat eye flick. Never hurts to have some flashy nails as well 😉

This is just a small thank you for those who have been supporting me through this journey. I cannot say in words just how grateful I am for each and every one of you!

EMPTIES: Urban Decay Chill Makeup Setting Spray & Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser

Urban Decay Chill Setting Spray and Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish

Hey everyone! I’m embarrassed to say it’s been a while since I updated my blog. I should have a break from work coming soon so I promise to update more often!

I always loved watching YouTube videos and reading blogs on empties and reviews because if someone has gone through the whole bottle, jar, container, whatever it is that’s holding the product… it means the review that follows is really insightful. I bring two items to the table today Urban Decay Chill Setting Spray and Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser (Orange Flower & Chamomile).
