Hey everyone! Today I wanted to share a few pics from a Clinique event I recently attended. For the very first time, New York-based Clinique held a party on the West Coast in glitzy Hollywood to share their current lineup of products, from color cosmetics to skincare to their men's care offerings (which my husband happens to big a big fan of). I was super excited to see what must-haves and new cravings I would find for Fall here!
The first product that you guys probably know I love and was immediately drawn to were the iconic Chubby Sticks. They are hydrating, colorful, and the easy pencil shape makes them exceedingly purse-poppable as well. Love, love, love!
It's no surprise that the first thing Kassia (my sista' in crime and photographer for the night) and I scoped out were the delicious hors d'oeuvres. Come on. The multi-colored potatoes with creme fraiche and caviar on the left and fig drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette were to-die-for and a happy tummy always makes beauty products somehow more appealing to me. ;)
Around the decorated bar, there were several booths like this "colour" one displaying the line for testing different shades and textures. A Clinique expert was there to give guidance for the best products and I personally took a skincare questionnaire which found that my favorite Moisture Surge Intense moisturizer is indeed the most suitable for my combo-dry, acne-prone skintype.
(Insert silent fist-pump here, of the most ladylike variety, of course.) It's always nice to be told you are doing something right!
To round out the night, we got to leave our mark at the Chubby Stick Mirror, my official-very-unofficial title of the Instagram-happy selfie op. And Instagram I did.
No offense to the others, but my Mightiest Maraschino Chubby Stick Intense was the BEST COLOR, wasn't it?! Can't wait to bust that out for the holiday season.
Wanted to leave you with one last beautiful shot overlooking LA at dusk from the patio of Sunset Tower. A beautiful evening to wrap a lovely event. Thanks so much to the amazing Kassia Phoy for all of these lovely photos! You can check out more of her work on her portrait photography blog and Instagram.
