New In Clinique

A few weeks back, I gave you a sneak peak on my snapchat (@FashionableESQ) into the new skincare and product launches for Clinque. After enjoying a beautiful breakfast at Pasion del Cielo, in Midtown Miami, hispanic media gathered for a chat with Clinique global ambassador, Stephanie Flores and learned about the new skincare and makeup launches. I'm detailing them down below, with swatches! Also uploaded a short little video showing the entire lip color shade range.

What's new in Clinique? The Clinique Crayola Collab!

The first product I want to chat about is the Clinique Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder Oil Free ($25.00): I will admit, it's been a long time since I toted a pressed powder because I love the feel of a loose setting powder.  A big drawback to loose powder is obviously that you can't take it with you. I live in Miami, where it's always hot and humid and where the makeup melts off your face. Guys, the Clinique Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder Oil Free is so good because you can take it on the go!  Blot out excess oil before applying, and then touch up your makeup while you're out. It's sheer so it's not going to cake over the makeup you already have on, it just leaves the prettiest matte finish on the skin. Check out the reviews this has on It's highly rated.

Clinique Pop Lip Color + Primer ($18.50): These Pop Lip colors (featured above) wear smoothly for hours. They have a built-in primer so you don't need to do anything to prep your lips. They don't feather and the pigmentation is beautiful. I also love the bright color range and the perfect selection of nudes and neutral colors. 

Clinique Pop Liquid Matte Lip Colour + Primer ($18.50): Clinique's version of a liquid lipstick. My new favorite, soft, almost moussey formula. Long-wearing but comfortable because they contain avocado oil, and Vitamin E. My two favorite shades are Cake Pop (04) and Nude Pop (01). Swatches below. Cake Pop is coral although it appears red in the swatches. It's the perfect summery color.

Clinique Lash Flutter Flutter-To-Full Mascara ($21): a clickable mascara wand that wipes product off for you, from within the tube. Daytime office look? No problem, click once. Want maximum volume and flutter? Click three times. The brush on this mascara is magic. I love it. 

Clinique City Block Purifying Charcoal Cleansing Gel ($20): Charcoal is known for naturally drawing out impurities. Blackheads and other skin issues don't stand a chance. It's also a naturally oil absorbing ingredient. This cleansing gel is best suited for oily, blemish prone skin. Other skin types may find this to be too drying.

I really can't wait to try this out. This product is supposed to work in just two weeks. That's a pretty unprecedented claim - two weeks to correct discoloration? I am all in! Currently testing out some other serums but be on the lookout for reviews on my social channels about this one, coming up soon. 
EDIT: this is a good product with flawed packaging. I have been using it for about 4 weeks, and have seen minimal dark spot fading. I like the texture and it absorbs into the skin quickly. You can wear your makeup over it, without any issue. The cons - the tube is very hard, you can't squeeze product out of it - and it has a dual chamber that's supposed to dispense the same amount of product with every pump. Well, this is a flawed system because only one side is dispensing product, and there's no way to get the other side to release the product. Because the theory is that both products are required to work together, you will not get the most bang for your buck out of this unless you literally shatter the tube to try and get the rest out. 

Hope you enjoyed this first look at some of the new product launches for Clinique!
