Clinique Christmas Gifts 2016
This year’s Christmas packaging from Clinique is absolutely beautiful – there’s something a bit liquorice allsorts about it with bold colours and a black and white side stripe. And tins! Who doesn’t love a tin. I’ve pulled out three of the lower price point gifts that I feel are great value for money and also likely to be the ones that sell out first, but it’s a small selection from the full range if you feel spendy.
So, first up is the Sweet Kisses Tin above for £20 with five mini Chubby Lip Balms in Curvy Candy, Mightiest Maraschino, Pudgy Peony, Roundest Raspberry and Curviest Caramel. A quick check reveals that this is the set that is selling out the fastest. It’s HERE.
Next up are the boxes – again, I think they’re really good value and the kind of ‘can’t go wrong’ beauty gift that anyone would be pleased to have.
Above is the Indulgent Lashes Box (£17.50 HERE) containing Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara in Jumbo Jet, Clinique Skinny Stick in Black and a 7ml Pep Start Eye Cream. I should add that each item comes individually wrapped in white tissue. I have not managed to re-wrap them in the same way – there’s clearly an origami style system going on, so don’t unwrap before you gift because they will never, ever look the same!
Finally, I picked out the Chubby Sampler (really not a very glamorous name…. perhaps it was the end of a long old naming day). Inside (again, individually wrapped, so release at your peril), you’ll find small sizes of Chubby Stick in Chunky Cherry, Chubby Stick Shadow for Eyes in Lots O’Latte, Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm in Amp’d Up Apple and Chubby Lash in Jumbo Jet. It’s £20 HERE.
I actually think, so far, that Clinique Christmas is the best in terms of presentation and value – I love the continuing rebrand of Clinique; the injection of fun, colour and exciting formulas. I was thinking about the brand last night and going back to when counters seemed so sterile and serious – I’d never have guessed that present day Clinique would be neon!
