It's Clinique gift with purchase time at The Bay starting today, February 9-27, 2011 and I wasted no time picking mine up. With any Clinique purchase of $26.50 or more you get this 7 piece set for free. I admit I only buy Clinique when they have these free offers on. A foundation will set you back around $30, so it's a good choice.
Here is a close up of the makeup bag that you get, it has a flap over the top, and then a zipper, white inside, pretty roomy. I like these bags for travel and for keeping my daily makeup in the bathroom. It's a pretty orange, yellow, pink flower print.
And here are the 6 other items that you get. The item that I am most excited about is the Even Better Skin Tone Correcting moisturizer (on left), the blush is in a cute compact (with mirror) but isn't really my colour, and the rinse off cleanser I already have from the last Clinique gwp. The lipstick is always an ugly colour that comes with these sets in my opinion. The quickliner is in dark chocolate, which is a nice dark brown. The mascara seems okay too, it's the lash doubling one. I am surprised there was no dramatically different lotion in this set cause they love putting that in.
Some swatches of the lipstick, blush and quickliner here. I may give the two items away and keep the liner cause it's nice.
The foundation that I picked up was Even Better, I liked the coverage of this and that it's meant to even and correct skintone. However, the Clinique girl had problems finding the right match for me. They didn't have the lightest shade in this foundation, (of course) and so I picked up 02 Fair, which in my opinion is NOT that fair at all. She applied it all over my face and went I went home I looked like an oompa loompa, so this one is going back and I am getting 01 if they have it.
I also went to Sephora today and returned the Laura Mercier silk creme and exchanged for some goodies. I felt bad because I did like it, but Cream Ivory was far too dark for me.
