A Little Gift From Clinique

If there ever comes a day that a good gift with purchase doesn't tempt me in to a little splurge, I don't know who I am. It doesn't even annoy me that they have me forking out $50/60/70 even $100- there's just something too tempting about receiving a little makeup pouch full of sample sized treats (half of which I'll never use but that's beyond the point, isn't it?). I tend to eye things up from the usual suspects (Clinique, Clarins and Estée Lauder) and then anxiously await the inevitable GWP email to drop in to my inbox. If you're going to spend the money may as well wait to get a little something free along side it too, right?

This week's gift offering came courtesy of Clinique and meant I could finally get my hands on one two of their chubby sticks. Their Chubby Sticks for Eyes had been on my radar for quite some time, spying them on ultimate enabling duo Lily and Anna, but what shade? In a toss up between Ample Amber and Fuller Fudge I opted for the latter, a deeper, more browny hue. Next on the chubby list was the Cheek variety. A relatively new launch (well here in Aus. at least) and the shade Robust Rhubarb just seemed to do it for me. A peachy pink cream formula, if it was a coffee it'd be my 'usual'.

On to the actual GWP which I picked up in Myer. I think the promotion has ended now but hang in their, I'm sure they'll be another one just around the corner. Encased in a cute little makeup bag (looks much better than it feels unfortunately, not the best quality) you receive a mini Liquid Facial Soap Mild, Take The Day Off Makeup Remover, Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion, Moisture Surge CC Cream, Blushing Blush in Aglow, Almost Lipstick in Black Honey and High Impact Mascara in Black. For me the most exciting of the bunch are the CC Cream and High Impact Mascara, both of which I've heard a fair few rave reviews on. I'll keep you posted.


  1. Myer always have amazing gwp, especially from Clinique. I always seem to see them once the promotion is over, I might have to sign up for the mailing list.

  2. I saw that gift in myer the other day - I was so tempted to buy something from clinique for it! I'm in looove with the Chubby sticks too! I desperately want to try the cheek one!

  3. Fantastic gwp! I especially want to check out the chubby stick for eyes as I haven't had a chance yet.

  4. Great little GWP, the bag is very cute, shame it's not as good quality! I really want to try their Chubby sticks for eyes and cheeks. Robust Rhubarb would be my pick too!
