I was browsing cosmetics counters one day, as I am wont to do, and I decided to reacquaint myself with the brand's offerings. As soon as I approached the display, I was greeted by a lovely pink shade of lipstick, the Butter Shine Lipstick in Pink-a-Boo (and yes, the Sales Associate greeted me as well!). First off, if you know me, you know that I can't resist a pink lipstick! So that automatically caught my attention. Secondly, how cute is the name of that lippie?!? Admittedly, it made me smile.
As I stood there swatching the lipstick - I was immediately impressed by the smooth texture and glossy finish - the SA shifted my attention to a cute set, Clinique's Sunny-Side Favorites: five full-size products including a special edition palette. She informed me that the set was $32.50 (a $92 value) with any purchase. She showed me the two color options being offered: pink and bronze. Each collection contains some of Clinique's make-up and skincare greats: a Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser Mousse, All About Eyes, a Long Last Glosswear SPF 15, a High Impact Mascara, and a cute compact housing four eyeshadows and one blush shade. I was taken in by the value and the pinks of course caught me in their web.
I ended up with the Butter Shine Lipstick and the set of pink favorites, which included a lip gloss in Air Kiss, a gorgeous, slightly shimmery baby pink, eyeshadows in Sparkle Pink, Lucky Penny, Precious Pink, and Black Amethyst, and a blush in Cupid. In addition to the cosmetics items, the kit also came with an adorable pink and white summer tote bag!

I loved the lipstick packaging. It reminded me of Bamboo (the shiny metal version!)
