Clinique Bonus Time.

So I went in to Debenhams to buy some Clinique brush cleaner, only to get asked if there was anything else I wanted as they had a gift on, I probably wouldn't have bothered but I noticed there was a Chubby Stick in there, which I had yet to try and really wanted to, so naturally, I had obviously been eyeing up something else, in the form of their Even Better Concealer and I went for it!

Here is what the gift included: All About Eyes Moisturiser, I have actually purchased this before but the 'Rich' version, it feels nice and is fragrance free, it does the job of reducing dark circles and puffy eyes, though I probably wont be buying the full sized version again, ill stick to just the freebies, when they come around.

Take the Day Off Make Up Remover for Lids, Lashes and Lips, I have had this as a freebie before, but I wasn't interested in it and never used it, this time I have.  I have only used it a couple of times but I love it, really does the job and shifts waterproof mascara as well!!  I am thinking of purchasing the full sized bottle when its ran out!!

Powder Blush in 07 Sunset Glow  I don't use blusher so this has been thrown straight in the draw haha!

High Impact Mascara, a gift you get in the Bonus Time, every time without fail and I love it, I never actually buy it though as I love the size of the wand on the freebie, really easy to use and great for on the move.

Chubby Stick in 04 Mega Melon, I really like the shape of this, making it easy to apply, feels lovely on and really moisturising, it is also pretty good colour wise (see swatch below) so I look forward to seeing what the Chubby Stick Intense is like!

Finally the Liquid Facial Soap, I still have one of these from my last gift, I don't use this daily but I do keep them and take them camping with me as they are nice size for packing with all my other stuff and are quick and easy, it is quite nice and refreshing to use with it being a gel like wash.

The bag included is a great size to fit a lot in as well as large foundation bottles etc and its also the PERFECT size to fit my Naked 2 palette in whenever I go away any where!!

Now on the the actual purchases... The Concealer 

Even Better Concealer was pretty pricey at £18 but I love it!!  It has great coverage which I would say is medium/ high.  I purchased this in the 'Natural' shade after being colour matched by the lady at the counter.  I decided to get this after reading great review on their website though people main complaint seemed to be the size, at 3.5g it is pretty small, though I have been using it for over 3 weeks now and have barely made a dint in it!! 

I think its going to last a good while, I use this for blemishes, spots, to cover any possible redness around the nose area and in the dark circle under my eyes.  You can with with your fingers or a brush, though for those of you who have larger finger, you may find this a little difficult!  I use Samantha Chapman's Real Techniques Detailer Brush and love it!!  Would highly recommend and will most likely repurchase when it is empty.

Here are the swatches of both the Concealer in 'Natural' and the Chubby Stick in 'Mega Melon'

Chubby Stick in '04 Mega Melon' in the middle (Cant remember what the other one is doubt its the blusher but it could be!  Apologies, I took the pictures the day I purchased).  Not sure if you can see the concealer right in the crease of the wrist so see other picture below.

I am going leave writing about the brush cleaner as I plan to write a post about all the brushes I own (Currently a pretty small collection) and I will include it in that, so stay tuned!!
