I Really Wish Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Eye Treatment Understood My Eye Issues

Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Eye Treatment

I really do wish Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Eye Treatment understood my eye issues. Clinique introduced Smart Custom‑Repair Serum in 2014 and apparently it was a customized solution that would target areas in and around your face that needed addressing. Dark spots? Clinique’s smart serum would know what to do with those! Moisture? No problem! The smart formula would target those dry areas and hydrate them for you!

I think the idea of Clinique Smart Custom‑Repair Serum sounds brilliant in theory but I’m not sure how “smart” it is.

Now Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Eye Treatment uses the same technology as the serum! Apparently it targets and repairs “as needed, where needed”. One formula that will brighten, firm, plump, and repair the appearance of finer lines and crow’s feet!

Sounds great right?

The thing about Clinique eye cream and their skincare in general is you need a lot of time and patience with it. You see, I’m not that person. I’m impatient! I want it now! I like products, like Lancome Bienfait Multi Vital Daily Replenishing Oil where I see visible results right away. But if we’re realistic most skincare, no matter the cost, high or low, doesn’t produce visible results right away.

The best advice I ever received from a Clinique sales representative was, “Use it everyday and be patient!” She was right because with time and patient I get some really great results from one of my favorite eye creams from Clinique, Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle Correcting Eye Cream.

I mention this because I gave Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Eye Treatment a real fighting try but…

A New Bouncy Mask from First Aid Beauty

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

First Aid Beauty 5 in 1 Bouncy Mask

Ahhh! Bouncy skin care! I suppose my love affair with bouncy skin care began with the Illamasqua Hydra Veil Rehydrating Gel! Oh! There’s also a slew of Korea skin care that embraces the bounce like Mizon Returning Starfish Eye Cream, Mizon Returning Starfish Cream, Secret Key Angel Tears Waterfull Cream, and Skin Food Water Drop Facial Ice Vita Cream. Let’s not forget Shiseido Ibuki Multi Solution Gel!

There’s something terribly appealing about a big old blob of gel that retains its shape! It’s rather fun to press it, take a chunk out of it, shake it up, and do whatever else to it and it just bounces right back to form. It’s ALIVE! ALIVE!

First Aid Beauty 5 in 1 Bouncy Mask ($38) is apparently a facial in a jar that has a firm, bouncy gel texture that retains its shape. The ingridents include rose bud extra, marine botanicals, vitamin C, and pepha tight to improve to skin’s texture while hydrating, calming, firming, and plumping it up!

Sounds interesting right?

Mostly, I’m just keen on the bouncy texture hehe!

Available now at Sephora.com.

Urban Decay Set to Introduce 100 Shades of Vice Lipstick

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

It’s true! Urban Decay Vice Lipstick is upcoming to you shortly in a whooping 100 shade selection!

I think we all suspected as much when Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick went on sale for $11 bucks at Ulta.com, Sephora.com, and Macys.com but I’m not sure if anyone expected this much variety.

100 shades?

YES!

I’m screaming in delight!

Mind you, I’m not much of a lipstick girl as I prefer lipgloss but Urban Decay has been known to change my mind with shades like Gash!

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick will be available in six different finishes which include two different mattes, Mega and Comfort, as well as Cream, Metallized, Sheer, and Sheer finishes.

So yeah, it’s safe to say they’ll be a little something for everyone in this launch!

Urban Decay hasn’t shared launch date details yet but I imagine this is happening soon!

Stay tuned for more news!

Typically Inner Rim Eyeliners Don’t Work But Maybe Sephora Can Redeem That!

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

Sephora Contour Inner Rim Gel Eyeliner

For me Urban Decay Perversion is one of my favorites for lining my inner rim. It’s blacker than black formula looks incredible plus it wears fairly long for me. When I want my waterline makeup to wear long and strong I use my best kept gel eyeliner secret to keep it on all day but Perversion typically does the trick for me!

But there are brands that have tried to convince me that I need a special eyeliner exclusively for use on my waterline. Urban Decay’s 24/7 Waterline Eye Pencil and Tarte Amazonian Clay Tightlining Eyeliner come to mind and neither of which really impressed me.

Now we have Sephora Contour Inner Rim Gel Eyeliner! Inner Rim eyeliners don’t work for but maybe Sephora’s formula can redeem that….!
