Shine It On For Spring! Cliniques Gives YOU Lots of Options! LA STORY Shining Beauty Blog

Want that gorgeous glow for spring and summer? Want to rev up that shine on the lips? Or define those eyes? How about a blush of color so translucent yet gives you a unique glow– of subtle to more distinct color.

You don’t have to pay major bucks for these textures this season– and it’s not hard to find! Check out your local Clinique counter. YES, CLINIQUE!! While everyone’s been checking out  what’s going on with other brands, Clinique has been quietly making a statement that makes it worthy of YOUR attention–because it’s certainly got mine!

Besides having a slew of foundation options for every skintype and every type of coverage from sheer to full, textures from dewy to matte, Clinique’s got you covered.

It’s the color collections that have me WOW’ed!

Want that hint of illumination? Check out the  Uplighting Liquid Illuminator in 4 colors from  Natural to Bronze— enough to take you from spring to summer in perfect style and you can mix these into foundation, dab it onto the high points on your face to create definition  or wear it alone over well-prepped skin.  $22.50

Want a hint of more color and a bit of inner glow but want a more powder finish?  Fresh Bloom All Over Color is a GORGEOUS palette that you might not want to touch because it’s so insanely beautiful– but please do. You will love the colors available in  four different   compacts and all the shades in this flower portrait work together to give you both highlight and definition as well as soft glowing from within color. $29.50 (and it will last you all summer! )

Clinique Color Surge  Shadow Quads give you color that really works together to give you a soft natural eye look or enough color to give your eyes POP! Definitely a worthy investment at $25 and in five distinctly cool  quad collections.  Nifty palette slips nicely into your bag or your pocket.

Clinique Long Last Shine Lipstick gives your lips that hint of color — actually more than a hint but natural enough that you will feel comfortable wearing this on Saturday "day" as well as  Saturday "night". It’s soft shine– just enough to create a nice balance based on the illuminators or glow powders and it comes in a glorious range of shades. Check out  Beauty the perfect all purpose shade that I find is YLBB (your lips but better) — even for me! At $14 each, it’s not hard to pick up a couple of colors.

Check it out at or your local Clinique counter. This is one of those insanely great collections that I  love– and because it’s Clinique, you know it’s 1) not hard to find and 2) not going to vanish on  you- though I would invest in a couple of Illuminators and Glow palettes because I bet those will sell out fast!

Makes for a nice gift for Mother’s Day or for brides too!

If you see me floating around  with perfectly glowing skin, thank Clinique. It’s their stuff I have been wearing — and loving!
