Debenhams Exclusive Clinique Gift With Purchase

Hello My Lovelies,

I hope you are all doing well and are having a wonderful Friday! Over the last few weeks I have been sharing a variety of different gift with purchases with you and I have a brand new one to share with you today. I just love everything about gift with purchases and I always enjoy trying them out and sharing them with you. Firstly, who doesn't just love receiving a free gift when you have treated yourself at the beauty halls? I know I definitely do haha. Secondly, I honestly think they are a fantastic way to try, trial and test a product before committing to the full sized versions. Clinique is a brand I absolutely adore, however, I will put my hands up and say that I have tried more of their skincare than makeup products. I don't even have a reason why or some kind of excuse because I have worked on a Chanel counter in Debenhams with various wonderful makeup and beauty counters surrounding me...Clinique being one of them. This particular gift with purchase is absolutely gorgeous! All of the products come enclosed in this beautiful bright pink and super eye catching makeup pouch. The overall quality of the bag is just fabulous and it could definitely be reused to store your makeup at home or on the go. If this gift with purchase is something that is just calling your name I would recommend picking one up as soon as possible. This offer end on the 24th October and I would hate for you to miss out on such a great deal. To qualify for this Debenhams Exclusive Gift with Purchase you will have to purchase two or more items from Clinique; one being skincare or a foundation.

Whats in the bag?
Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes and Lips | 50ml
Liquid Facial Soap Mild | 30ml
Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief | 15ml
All About Shadow Duo in Strawberry Fudge | 2g
High Impact Mascara in Black | 3.5ml
Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick in Matte Magenta | 2.3ml

Starting off with skincare, there are three wonderful products within this set. The first product is the Take the Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes and Lips. I have been dying to try something from their 'Take the Day Off' line for ages now! This is a unique, two-way formula that loosens the grip, then speeds the departure of the more persistent, eye makeups, mascaras and lipsticks. I like to coat a cotton pad with the liquid and hold it on my eye for a good 30 seconds or so, then once removed your eye makeup is pretty much gone in one swipe! I will definitely be picking up the full sized version of makes makeup removal so much easier! The second product is the Liquid Facial Soap which I have actually used before when I religiously used my Clinique 3-step Skin Care System when I was first having some problem with my skin...this was before I started my blog. This is a very gentle and mild facial soap that is perfect for daily use. This works as a great morning and evening skincare treat and you can simply use it with your hands (the best tools) or with a skincare device. The final skincare product within this glorious set is the Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief which has recently undergone a mini makeover with a new and improved formula offering longer hydration for up to 12 hours. The formulation now consists of new micro-molecules which allows quicker and more efficient moisturisation which gives an immediate moisture boost and plump look to the skin. I love how it leaves my skin feeling super refreshed and incredible soaks into the skin perfectly and works as a great base / primer under makeup.

Now onto the makeup! Firstly we have the ever so gorgeous All About Shadow Duo in Strawberry Fudge. I think we all need to take a moment to appreciate how cute the name of this palette is...I just love it! This was the first time I had ever tried this particular palette from Clinique and I think they couldn't have chosen a better colour can do so much with it! The eyeshadows themselves were extremely blendable that offered high pigmentation and a long wearing time...what more could you ask for? I recently filmed a Simple Evening GRWM on YouTube and this palette would be perfect at recreating the look. The pink shade would make a gorgeous all over the lid shade and the chocolate shade would be perfect at defining your crease and lower lash line. The next product is the High Impact Mascara in the shade black. This is a multi-benefit mascara that adds maximum volume with definition and length. The brush itself has been specially developed to work with the formula to thicken and separate your lashes. I found the wand really easy to use as it wasn't too chunky or too thin and I found the formula long wearing as I had no flakiness throughout the day. The final makeup product within this set is the gorgeous Long Lasting Soft Matte Lipstick in Matte Magenta. This is Cliniques longest-wearing creamy-matte formula and it felt super comfortable on the lips. The shade itself is a gorgeous deep Magenta shade that would look lovely on everyone. It is a bright shade so you may want to keep this for the summer time, however, who says you can't wear a bright lip throughout the Autumn / Winter time? There are no rules when it comes to makeup so have fun with it!

Overall, I think this Debenhams Exclusive Clinique Gift with Purchase is just amazing and I was so amazed to see how generous all of the samples were...there were no foil packets in sight! I honestly thought that the lipstick was full size until I had a look on the Debenhams website. All of the products including this gorgeous cosmetics pouch are the perfect size for traveling, for someone constantly on the go or for someone exploring skincare for the first time. Like always lovelies, if you have any questions, requests or if you just want a chat you can contact me via my social media or leave me a comment below. I love hearing from you all and I make sure to ready every single comment...they really make my day!
