Clinique add to their ‘Even Better’ collection with the new ‘Even Better Eyes Dark Circle Corrector’.
‘Even Better Eyes’ is a pigmented cream which helps to reduce the look of dark circles, it contains caffeine and green tea extract which are known for their refreshing and awakening qualities.
I have been sticking to using this in the mornings as it is tinted and also, I feel like a need something a little heavier in the evening to see me through the night. The tint is just a general fleshy kind of colour which is for all skin types however the actual colour of the tint will NOT conceal your dark circles, this is not what this cream does. It is infact the brightening pigments within the tint that work to diffuse the look of tired eyes and dark circles.
The formula is lovely and can be applied straight from the tube as it features a slanted applicator, this provides a great cooling sensation especially in the morning when your eyes a slightly puffy from sleep, you may need to pat it in for even coverage.
‘Even Better Eyes’ is a dark circle corrector which has some good anti-ageing properties to it, it isn’t however a long term treatment for dark circles but merely something to help conceal and make them less prominent. I have enjoyed using it and have noticed the difference when I have it on, this teamed up with a good concealor is a brilliant combination.
Clinique Even Better Eyes is £28 for 10ml tube and is available here (not an affiliate link)

Lid Smoothie by Clinique is a new formulation packed with antioxidants that gives you up to 6 hours of crease resistant wear. The creamy formula contains nourishing ingredients to help protect the skin around the eye area whilst coaxing fine lines and wrinkles into complete smoothness.
‘Lid Smoothie’ is available in 12 shades and is priced at £17 each… take a peak below at my chosen shades and my thoughts.
My chosen three are: ‘Sassy-Fras’, ‘Cashew Later’ and ‘Lick-orice. The shadows are absolutely gorgeous with great staying power. I found on application the formula felt like a mousse, which then turned completely dry leaving a fabulous silky, smooth finish. The range of colours on the other hand are very samey, I’d love to see some shocking greens, pinks and blues just to add a pop of crazy colour to the range.
Have you tried ‘Lid Smoothie’ if so, which shade and what did you think?

Vaseline are launching a Limited Edition Lip Therapy tin which will go on sale exclusively in Selfridges from the 5th September. Our blogger challenge was to guess the flavour with the hints provided and put our creative skills to play and decorate our very own tin.
Champagne truffles, a balloon and a candle.
There seems to be a mixture of ingredients in this formula, I can smell a strong scent of rose with a sweet scent of pink champagne and some sort of citrus base like mandarin or grape fruit. Lets hope i’m right :p
If you want to find out more info and see the actual tin then you can visit the Facebook page at www.facebook.com/vaseline
