Clinique Gift Time!

Hi everyone - ugh I've still been very bad with my blogging haha
Anyways...Myer was doing the Clinique GWP this week (spend $60 and get a make up bag of deluxe samples), and I wasn't planning on buying anything, but then I realised I want need more moisturiser so perfect timing :P
I decided to go with a different moisturiser this time around. I recently purchased step 1 and 2 of the 3 step Clinique skincare range, but opted out of buying step 3, the moisturiser, because I didn't like the heavy creamy texture. However, the lady at the Clinique bar showed me that there was a moisturizing gel, which has a very similar texture to the Clinique Moisture Surge which I absolutely love, so I caved and got the moisturizing gel! As you can see from the image above, its a very lightweight texture that feels amazing - I can't wait to start using it with the face wash and toner. I don't know why, but I have always liked using an entire skincare range, as opposed to using products from different ranges and brands!

Now onto the GWP :) There were six deluxe samples with this GWP, and I was excited to see that half the products were makeup! YAY :)

Youth Surge Night and Day cream
I'm very excited to try out the Night cream, as I don't currently use any night creams. I've used the day cream before, but wasn't too fond of the texture or smell :( It's great that it has SPF though, so I usually keep it in my beach bag.

Take The Day Off Makeup Remover
YAY I love this product! Its very very similar to the Bioderma cleansing water, but as it is catered especially for eye-makeup, I find that it removes my stubborn waterproof mascara off better!

High Impact Mascara
They seem to always include this mascara in the GWP, but I don't mind because I love it! It is the perfect handbag sized mascara - and fits in my tiny clutches too! Only downside is that it's not waterproof

Chubby Stick in Mega Melon
I was super duper excited to receive a chubby stick in the GWP! I was always envious of the GWP in USA because they always included chubby sticks and now we finally have it! I already own a few chubby sticks, but luckily I haven't got Mega Melon - in the image below I compared the size of the sample to the original sized chubby stick, and I must admit I am impressed with the size. The sample is only approximately 2cm shorter than the original sized chubby sticks, and the only difference in the packaging is that it has a clear lid (the original has a silver lid). I am so happy with this because I've always liked Mega Melon!
 Quickliner For Eyes Intense
YAY another product I was stoked to receive! Check out the image below of my original sized eyeliner compared to the sample! They are basically the same size, the only difference is that the original sized eyeliner has the smudging tool! I love this eyeliner so much, it has a great formula and good pigmentation! I purchased the intense plum eyeliner, so I'm so glad I got the black eyeliner with the GWP!
