My Intro to Clinique

Intro to Clinique

I hate to typecast brands but whenever I think about Clinique I immediately think “old lady brand”. LOL! Trust me when I say I mean this in the least offensive way but Clinique has always felt a little too mature for my taste. Or boring. When I first started as a Prestige Manager at my local Ulta I could have literally jumped for joy when I found out we had a certified Clinique specialist (lab coat and all!) to run the Clinique boutique and steer guests in the right direction because I had the slightest clue on what to do over there. Nor was I interested in learning, to be honest.

However, the more I worked at Ulta, the more I learned how diverse and functional Clinique can be. It’s totally not just for old ladies! In fact, Clinique has a little something for everyone at a reasonable price point that perfectly bridges the gap between drugstore skincare and makeup and the high end stuff. It wasn’t until I sat in at a cluster training with my beautiful Clinique specialist that I began to develop a strong liking to Clinique.

Ulta Beauty Collection 230 Chocolate Kiss Lipstick Review

Ulta 230 Chocolate Kiss Lipstick

Don’t you hate when you overlook good products? I’ve been shopping at Ulta for years now and every time I’d walk through the doors I’d either make a beeline to NYX or Prestige for hot, new products. Completely ignoring the treasure chest of makeup, skincare and bath products chilling on the Ulta Beauty Collection wall. It wasn’t until I started working at Ulta that I started to explore the store more and discover brands I never knew about but now love. Brands like Formula 10.0.6, Laura Geller and, of course, Ulta’s own Beauty Collection.

Thanks to fun and way too tempting 21 Days of Beauty even this spring I’ve been drawn into checking out the Ulta Beauty Collection even more indulging in a grand total of 8 lipsticks when they were knocked down to just $3 from $8 on Sundays. What a deal! Upon swatching them, I could tell they would be pretty great quality so I decided to go ahead and grab a handful of them each time I made a visit.

Chocolate cherries without the calories or toothaches? Yes please! Too Faced has been serving up all kinds of sweet goodies this spring but I think the new Chocolate Cherries Melted Lipstick is my favorite so far. I know spring is all about bright lips and playful colors but every now and then I like to vamp it up a bit with a bold sexy lip that commands attention the second I walk into a room. That’s exactly why Chocolate Cherries deserves a spot in my overcrowded lipstick stash. It’s a sexy lip that’s edgy, daring and smells like chocolate. What more can a girl ask for?
