If you watched my new YouTube video yesterday, you would have already seen the new Clinique x Jonathan Adler collection. In the video, I took the products for a test drive (makeup brushes and makeup products) and created a smokey eye makeup look with a pop of olive on the lids. I’d like to tell you a little bit more about the collection in this blog post, and will add a link to the video for you to go check out. I also included swatches of the collection items I received – there is literally something for everyone in this collection.
The new limited edition collection by designer and potter Jonathan Adler captures the jet-set glam of his favourite seaside destinations – Palm Beach, Capri, and Santorini. This stunning collection consists of makeup must-haves that look as good on your vanity as they do on you. From the glamorous packaging to the bold colour, these beauty treasures are sure to make your makeup routine more fun, and stylish, than ever before! I took a photo of the products on my vanity (below)…gorgeous, right?
Did you know? Based on Clinique’s research that allergies contribute to skin ageing, every Clinique product is allergy tested 7,200 times and formulated to be completely fragrance-free. If even one of those 7,200 people has an allergic reaction, Clinique starts over. Their eye makeup is ophthalmologist tested, and their lipsticks have the added benefit of including moisturisers to nourish your lips. And their foundations lessen fine lines and wrinkles while improving uneven skin tone and redness.
Here’s a quick Q & A with Jonathan Adler:
Q: What inspired this collection?
A: Jet-set glamour. I always think about iconic destinations. Places where women look like their most glamorous selves. I wanted to capture that in makeup. I thought about diving into the Aegean Sea, and being in fabulous places: Palm Beach, Florida. Capri, Italy. Santorini, Greece.
Q: How would you describe your design style?
A: I call my style modern American glamour. I always try to keep things fresh and new and modern. One of the lines in my manifesto is “We believe in irreverent luxury” and that captures a lot of what I’m about.
Q: What does Clinique mean to you?
A: Clinique is a classic, iconic brand. It’s always been in my life. I grew up with it in my mother’s and sister’s cabinets. That’s why I was so thrilled when this collaboration came about. My brand is very similar. We’re both about being classic, chic and refreshing.
Q: What do you love most about this collection?
A: This collection shows that tiny treasures can bring big pleasures. It’s very chic, very classic, very Clinique. I hope everyone enjoys using it as much as I enjoyed creating it.
The collection features Clinique’s iconic Pop Lip Colour and Primer lipsticks (a personal favourite of mine), their Cheek Pop blushes, their super cute Lid Pop eyeshadows, and a limited edition brush set.
CLINIQUE X JONATHAN ADLER LUXE BRUSH COLLECTION
Designer Jonathan Adler reimagined four bestselling makeup brushes with hot pink bristles and clear Lucite handles. The Powder Brush dusts on loose or pressed powder for a smooth airbrushed finish, while the Blush Brush is slightly tapered for precise blush / bronzer application. You’ll have to check out the video to see what I used the Eyeshadow Brush for because it is a rather large size, and the Eye Shaper Brush is great for detail work. I really like that each brush features antibacterial technology, which helps ensure the highest level of hygiene. A travel-friendly zippered pouched patterned in one of Jonathan Adler’s designs is also included, perfect for on-the-go gals.
The Clinique x Jonathan Adler Luxe Brush Collection set retails for R835,00.
CLINIQUE X JONATHAN ADLER LID POP
These are silky, longwearing eyeshadows with an exclusive Jonathan Adler geometric print hot-stamped on the lid and pressed into the powder. Each eyeshadow builds and blends easily and adds an instant pop of colour to your lids. Remember to check out the video to see swatches of the shades I received!
The Clinique x Jonathan Adler Lid Pop eyeshadows retail for R380,00 each.
CLINIQUE X JONATHAN ADLER POP LIP COLOUR + PRIMER
These were inspired by Jonathan’s Globo Collection, which are colourful domes of acrylic and brass. Each lipstick features a gem-like acrylic cabochon atop the cap and Jonathan’s signature geometric pattern etched around the tube. There are nine shades available in the collection, including three limited edition shades inspired by Jonathan’s favourite travel destinations – Capri Pop, Palm Beach Pop, and Santorini Pop. I also swatched the lipstick shades I received in the video, you can take a look below.
The Clinique x Jonathan Adler Pop Lip Colour + Primer lipsticks retail for R295,00 each. If you want to spoil yourself with a super moisturising lipstick with intense pigment, I can’t recommend these enough! They’re one of my favourite lipstick formulas!
CLINIQUE X JONATHAN ADLER CHEEK POP
Inspired by French gardens, these silky-smooth, stay-true blushes give cheeks that pretty, just-back-from-vacation glow.
The Clinique x Jonathan Adler Cheek Pop blushes retail for R275,00 each.
