Clinique Spring 2013 Collection - Spring Gingers
The name "Spring Gingers" out a very different picture in my head than what the shades actually look like. I am seeing a deep green eye shadow pencil and a bright pink lip hue, I was envisioning warm bronze and tawny shades that will complement the first hints of a tan. I guess that I was wrong and perhaps that means that I will be able to easily find products from Spring Gingers. "Sunny warmth with a splash of flirty, fresh-faced appeal.", is the collection description from Clinique. Let's see how this collection plays out...
The Spring Gingers collection from Clinique!
Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes - Sheer wash of lightweight, creamy colour slips on. Layerable and long-wearing. Versatile, too. Glide one on for a swift wash of colour. Contour with another to add depth, and yet another to highlight. There's no need to stop at just one. Appropriate for sensitive eyes and contact lens-wearers.
- 06 Mighty Moss - deep moss green shimmer
Quickliner for Eyes Intense - No need to be subtle when it's now so easy to move into the deepest, most dramatic range. Find all the intensity of a liquid liner in one simple stroke. Silky formula glides on. Stays on all day. Never needs sharpening. "Smoke" with the smudge tip on the opposite end. Ophthalmologist Tested.Two great ways to wear it.
- Intense Ivy - deep moss green
Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm - Tempt lips with a soft cushion of colour that's not quite sheer, not quite opaque-just the perfect happy medium. Loaded with mango and shea butters so lips feel comfortably soft and smooth. Eight vibrant shades in all.
- Mightiest Maraschino - bright pink red cream
High Impact Mascara - Kicks up the volume and length of each and every lash for a look that's lusher, plusher, bolder. Pure, deep colour only adds to the impact. Wear it once and you'll feel naked without it. Ophthalmologist Tested.
- Black - deep black
Blushing Blush Powder Blush - Silky formula sweeps effortlessly over cheekbones to create a natural look. Fresh, jet-milled colour builds and blends beautifully to desired intensity with custom sculpting brush. Long-wearing, colour-true. Oil-free.
- Cupid - pale dusty pink with matte finish
I really like this part of the spring looks too but not quite as much as I liked the first spring look. I don't think that I consider any of the these products and shades to be must haves and I would be ok if I didn't get to pick any of them up. I think that my favorite pieces are the eye makeup products, I love the moss colors in the eye shadow and liner. I already own an olive colored eye liner from MAC but I want to find a deeper hue to create a deeper moss green eye. I could skip over every other item in the collection but I really want the eye makeup products. Personally, I would not use them in a spring makeup look and would save them until the fall.
This is the second of the three collections, so far I have liked both so far and now I am excited to look at the last Clinique collection. And my last spring collection of 2013...
