Cool Creative dives into Summer with Clinique

"Summer in Clinique" brings in a refreshing look to bold color

Thanks to a special invite, I stopped by the “Summer in Clinique” pop up truck for some yummy makeup treats! I indulged in the ice cold Popsicle creations hand-crafted by Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit Co. These juicy popsicles were inspired by Clinique's new lip pop colour collection. This year is all about bold, rich colors and I wanted to sample all the lip-luscious treats for myself. My lips were in gloss heaven after trying their ‘Color Pop Glaze’ collection, a pretty pop of semi-translucent and bold colour + smoothing primer, all in one in one coat. The lux, yet weightless formula wears for up to 8 hours and keeps lips comfortably moisturized.

After hours of continuous pop and glaze galore, I was in love! NEXT, I browsed their eye-catching creations, including their new SPF 50 Mineral Sunscreen. This oil-free formula is great for extreme summer days and are perfect for those with sensitive eyes, like myself. Gentle and virtually invisible to all skin types, this liquid gold can be found at for just $26! Compared to similar brands, this was definitely a steal.

I simply couldn't get enough of the products, especially the colors. Bold was an understatement for how these deep rouges and satin pinks graced the Clinique show table... major slay-spiration. As I indulged some more, I got some great must-have tips and insight from two of Clinique's most trusted experts.

One-on-one with the Clinique Mentors
Clinique consultant Lazaro Gomez has been apart of the Clinique experience for over 11 years. I got him to spill on some summer tips and go-to’s. “I'm definitely a matte lover. It actually stays on longer and it doesn't bleed compared to liquid lipstick,” Gomez explained. “I would love to see matte lips and waterproof mascara recycled into the 2016 summer craze. My favorite from the Colour Pop collection is definitely the lipstick,” said Gomez. Before grabbing my palate cooling raspberry popsicle and jumping in front of the “Clinique Camera” for my selfie gif, I stopped by and spoke to PR extraordinaire Ally Stern and got even mo
re advice on how to glow this summer. “My perfect summer 2016 look is a bare face, with a nice pop of color,” Stern dished. I use Clinique's ‘Sun-kissed Face Gelee Complexion Multitasker’ to give me a natural oil-free glow and I pair it with Clinique's ‘Oil Lip and Cheek Glow,’ also a part of the Colour Pop collection.”

Lip and cheek glow?! Yes please! This luscious yet light-weight is infused with safflower, jojoba, and sunflower oils to help seal moisture. And yes, it's only $18. I had a ton of fun and got all the assistance I needed to wake up my makeup regimen. With a creamy yet juicy popsicle, bit of mingling, and a one of a kind gif later, I was ready to say farewell to my friends at Clinique.
