Clinique Bonus Gift

Time to stock up on Clinique products! Spend $31 or more at The Bay and receive a 7-piece gift. This promotion ends Feb.21, 2015.

This is when I buy Clinique’s Even Better Makeup. What I love about this product: It’s light but offers great coverage. It matches my skin tone better than any other product. Has an SPF 15. It’s $33, but when you purchase it during the Clinique promotion (Spring or Fall) it’s a good deal.

I do like the Fall promotion make-up bags better. I find the Spring promo bags to be a little stiff.501_CLINIQUE_GWP_EN


Rudolph Fresh Face Mask by Lush


I am absolutely loving this fresh face mask!

It even comes with a red jelly ‘nose’ for you to pop on while you’re wearing the mask! Now that’s fun!

“Soothes red noses

If you spend your winter outdoors in the frosty air, bring your skin in from the cold with Rudolph! This limited edition Fresh Face Mask soothes and softens dry, irritated skin with nourishing ingredients like calamine, lavender and oatmeal, while fresh mint and cucumber revitalize and replenish skin’s radiance.” –

I have combination skin that can be reactive. This face mask is calming, soothing and hydrated. My skin feel firm and supple after I use this mask.

This is what I do

  1. I use the Lush Full of Grace moisturizing bar and massage the product into my face and neck
  2. I apply the fresh face mask, adding a little water if needed
  3. Relax and wait about 5 minutes
  4. Scrub the mask of in the shower

Too bad it is only around ’till Christmas.

Last Day for Clinique Bonus @ The Bay!


Last Day for Clinique Bonus @ The Bay!

I picked up two of these. I love the Clinique Bonus Events. These typically run in the Fall and in the Spring at The Bay & Sears.

This one was a pretty good deal: spend $31.00 or over and receive the 7 piece gift.

My favourite foundation is Clinique Redness Solutions or Clinique Even Better (in shade 02). They both feel weightless and have very good natural looking coverage.

The cost at the Bay is $34.00 add on the free gift and I’ve gotten ‘good bang for my buck’.

The bonus gift:
Exclusive cosmetics bag
Repairwear Laser Focus Eye, 7mL
New Repairwear Laser Focus, 15mL
New Dramatically Different Moistuirzing Lotion+, 30mL
High Impact Mascara
YOUR CHOICE: Almost Lipstick in Lovely Honey or Luscious Honey
YOUR CHOICE: New All About Shadow Duo in Buttered Toast or Day Into Date

Cherry Blossom Nail Art

I’ve been a little obsessive about nail polish this past year.

I saw a picture of some really neat nail art and decided I’d try to duplicate it.

I created a base coat with OPI Mermaid’s Tears.

Followed up with some black lines for the branches.

OPI Dim Sum Plum for the Cherry Blossoms.

Finished up by adding white dots in the cherry blossoms and completed with a top coat.

I was impressed! Mostly at my ability to be still and to keep my nails from getting smudged.
