Whenever I hear or see the word CLINIQUE, I am always brought back to childhood memories of playing with my mom's makeup kit and secretly putting on my mom's clinique makeup! She had eyeshadow, mascara, and a lipstick that I really wanted bad. I remember bugging my mom about it til she finally agreed to give it to me.. and it was my favorite! It was already half-used when I got it and I was just too happy to complain about that and used it all up! I remember using it everyday during college. It was my number one lipstick at that time. I also had a small clinique brown eyeshadow that I carried with me during my college days. It was lightweight and so easy to use.
So when _wickermoss_ (charlesangel) announced in her blog that she's going to hold a CLINIQUE party, I really wanted to join! I was already in the midst of emailing her about it when I double checked my calendar and realized that it might be in conflict with an important school event. I asked if I could be just a little bit late to the party. Charlesangel is such a dear for being understanding. So in other words, I arrived at the Clinique party last June 18 at Rustan's a little bit late.
I also had a bit of wardrobe issues before going to the event. Since it was a clinique event, we were encouraged to wear clinique colors! Unfortunately for me, most of my wardrobe consists of black, black, purple, black, brown, black, and a whole lot more black. LOL. My transformation from a caterpillar to a butterfly feels like its too recent. (Referring to THIS blog post). So I'm still in the process of embracing the new me and new colored wardrobe. Whatever colored clothing item I have, is like almost 1 piece per color. Hehe.. Anyway, I tried to wear white. And some green. So not my colors. I told myself that its part of growing up. And improving.. and finding this "new" side of me of trying out new colors. I consulted my sister for help in this area.I stared at myself in the mirror wearing the white tank, black skirt, and green coverup and was appalled! I ended up buying and wearing a black tank top, black skirt, and green coverup.Thank goodness that black loves me..it has never failed to show off the best side of me! So here's my OTD for the clinique event:
|Green Top - bought from Plumpinay during BU, Black Tank Top - Bazaar, Black Skirt - Attitudes, |
Yellow Flats - SM Parisian, Bag - Tomato, Belt - SM, and Ring - Girl Shoppe
The party has already started. I was one of the last to arrive with Jen. It was all good though coz it would take some time before a skin consultant could attend to me. Clinique had three skin consultant's at that time and were attending to the other bloggers at the event. So I had some time to get to know some of these awesome "Beauty" Bloggers and Vloggers. I really enjoyed talking to all of them and make great friends with them.

Then my turn came and I had a skin consultation with Miss Baby. She has amazing gentle hands and I really learned a lot from her. I will be talking more about that on my next blog post.

Again, thanks clinique!
