Pretty Wow Pretty Now | Clinique.

When I was younger, I wished my life was more exciting and that I was more of a ~badass~. I spent the night of my prom doing Fun Friday Math Trivia so I could get bonus marks that helped me get 95% in Grade 12 Calculus. Ain’t that the life? These days, I’m more bad and holed up blogging by night. Not much progress to be honest.

Except for one of those days that I get to maximize the points earned per transaction, minimize the cost and optimize the product selection.

That’s right betches, I’m CEO material.

Some weeks ago, I got a preview of the upcoming Clinique holiday launches and immediately lost my mind. Like, when’s payday again!? The one that really got to me? The “Pretty Wow Pretty Now” Set that’s currently available at both The Bay and Shoppers Drug Mart ($55, available here).



All About Shadow Quad // Skinny Stick in Sleek Teak // Cheek Pop in Heather Pop // Long Last Glosswear in Love at First Sight

The set includes 3 full-sized items, and 2 mini/trial-sized products:

  1. Limited Edition All About Shadow Quad, full-size ($35, available here)
  2. Cheek Pop in Heather Pop, full-size ($26, available here)
  3. High Impact Mascara in Black, full-size ($19, available here)
  4. Clinique Skinny Stick in Sleek Teak (limited edition shade), trial/mini ($20, available here)
  5. Long Last Glosswear in Love at First Sight, trial/mini ($20, available here)
  6. Take The Day Off Makeup Remover, trial/mini ($11, available here)

For an excellent variety of products (including three highly-raved, and some of my most coveted products), it wasn’t too difficult to decide that I wanted to purchase this set. It’s currently available at both The Bay and Beauty Boutique at Shoppers Drug Mart so quite easily accessible.

I really think this set is one of the season’s must-have – a set of carefully curated kit that includes the most universally skintone-flattering shades like the Heather Pop blush (One that isn’t too obnoxious and can be worn across a spectrum of skintones). The lipgloss colour isn’t one that I would normally reach for, but it’s only a mini, so I can live with that. The limited edition quad is just right up my alley – the warm toned purple and grey shades are the perfect combination for holiday makeup (Yep, I’m already thinking that far!) The quality of the eyeshadows aren’t like the Urban Decay, or Inglot ones that I’m used to, but I think I can make it work by combining it with other colours from my existing palettes and collection.

I don’t think anyone can go wrong by including one of Clinique’s best-selling mascara and eye makeup remover. The combination is just easy to throw into a travel makeup bag or in a gym bag!

Overall, a great value set that has some of Clinique’s best selling products that you can buy at a fraction of the cost!

Have you seen this set at your local Shoppers Drug Mart or The Bay? Would you pick it up? What’s your favourite product?

All of these products look amazing! I love the blush and I love it! The packaging is also adorable!

I’m excited by the blush colour – it’s nothing exciting but urgghh! It’s gorgeous!!

This is such a cute set, have you tried their new lip liners? They’re my favorite product Clinique has recently launched

There are so many Clinique products I want to try out, I think getting a set is the perfect way to ignite my addiction, haha! Great post x Your photo skills are on fleek!

These products look lovely! Nice little prom story. ????

I was so tempted by this kit! I’m properly obsessed with the Cheek Pops and Clinque’s mascaras and liners are among my faves as well. Such pretty purple shades too ????

The blush did me in!! I’m in love with the Clinique cheek pops and I’m glad they included a universal colour so I was quite thrilled by this purchase ????

Why must clinique always have cute packaging??? I wanted to try the cheek pops but wasn’t sure which shade to get, I’m really liking Heather pop though. If they had this set at Macy’s or Nordstrom I would definitely consider buying it but I’m not really liking the lip gloss.

Perfect Shade of Mauve

Oh yes, very cute set indeed! The Cheek Pop blushes are so good.

Which shades are your favourite?

Thank you! ???? I haven’t delved into a lot of Clinique makeup so this is a good way to start the collection out!

No I haven’t! Are you referring to the chubby stick formula’s? I haven’t been in the loop with Clinique launches!

no they’re twist up liners!

Agreed – thanks ????

I agree!! I love the bright colour block design of the gift sets this year! I’m trying to pace myself with respect to the Cheek Pops – they are lovely but I have a couple that I haven’t made a dent in before going out and buying more of them!
