Glamour Mag with Clinique Freebies December Out Now!

Glamour Clinique Freebies November/December 2015

I love the run up to Christmas; the joyful atmosphere, the gift sets and of course the annual pairing up of Clinique and Glamour to bring us some wonderful gifts free with glamour magazine for only £2. I recently subscribed for the Nails Inc offer (although I missed that one) to get 3 issues for £3, and so I was keenly awaiting this issue. I had no idea what the gifts were going to be but I can tell you I was not disappointed. I received a lipstick in Nude Pop through the post, and on my grocery shop yesterday I came across Cherry Pop. At first I was like do I really need another red, but I decided to go for it anyway and I am glad I did! (more to come on that soon)

Glamour Clinique Freebies November/December 2015

First of all, the four gifts available this year are the Clinique Pop Lip Colour and Primer in Cherry Pop, the Clinique Pop Lip Colour and Primer in Nude Pop, the Clinique High Impact mascara and the Clinique dramatically different moiturising lotion.

Whilst I haven't picked up the High Impact mascara this year yet (although there were plenty of them on the shelf but I resisted because I already have a huge backlog of mascaras), I would really recommend it as I got it last time they had it in the magazine and whilst it does seem like a small trial size it lasted me forever! It's also one of my favourite mascaras as it's great at lengthening and volumising, but it gives a really natural look. I still have the wand washed out somewhere to use with other mascara formulas.

So the two products I picked up were the mini lipsticks: Clinique Pop Lip Colour and Primer in Cherry Pop and the Clinique Pop Lip Colour and Primer in Nude Pop. Whilst they're not tiny I'm going to for 'mini' as the packaging in quite small and the bullet is slightly slimmer than your average lipstick. However, I'm sure that they'll last just as long.

I absolutely adore the packaging (my photos don't do it justice), it's minimasltic but chic, definitely something I'd love to take out of my handbag (plus the size is a bonus when it comes to carrying them around with you). The packaging is split into two parts, the bottom is indicative of the shade and the top is a silver reflective lid with Clinique embossed on the side. The packaging looks quite high end to me, plus I love that it clicks into place reassuringly, as sometimes you don't get that with the more affordable lipsticks, but rest assured these will stay in tact in your bag.

Cherry Pop looks like a pillar box red in the tube, however when I swatched it came across as a very bright raspberry red, more cherry like the name suggests. The formula is very smooth and pigmented, opaque in one swatch. It's a shade that would suit all in my opinion. Recently I had gone off reds as the same shades that once worked for me now looked too harsh, however this lipstick has changed all that. I'm pretty sure this shade will fly off the shelf!

When I first got Nude Pop I wasn't too sure on it as I really cannot pull off nudes. The shade on my medium skintone (MAC NC30/Bourjois 54) is one shade lighter than my natural lip colour. At first it came up as a shimmery nude pink, with slight mauve undertones. I wasn't a fan of the shimmer but it died down to give a more satin finish, and the end shade was a more wearable pink. I think this shade is growing on me, it's a nude that doesn't scream nude at you, and I like the fact it's more subtle.

The formula of both lipsticks is creamy and moisturising, perfect for this time of the year, although I do think Cherry Red is the more pigmented out of the duo. There is some wear when eating, however these lipsticks won't stick to your dry patches and they are worth far more than the £2 price tag. Tip: The lipsticks also produce a lovely soft pinky red when worn together if Cherry Pop is too bright for you.

Overall, I would say run out and get these whilst you can! The products will also make great stocking fillers for any beauty fanatic.

I hope you enjoyed this post!
Will you be picking up any of the products?
