    Do you know if Clinique products are the same price at all the department stores?

  2. Claudia

    Interesting! I wonder how these compare to the Cover FX drops. Those are mostly pigment too so you can mix them with anything!

Funny Story:

By now you should know how much I love Clinique products. The majority of my beauty products are from Clinique.

I also can show you this post and/or this post as proof as well! I know allll about the Clinique brand and Clinique’s products.

With that being said, they STILL MANAGE to come out with products that surprise me.

Before my trip to Mexico in February, I stopped by the Clinique counter at Nordstrom. I wanted to see if they had any new colors in their Pop Matte’ Lip Color + Primer, which is basically the best lipstick in the world! I use Mod Pop (fav), Rose Pop (the dark pink shade), and Ruby Pop (the orange-red tint you guys love so much!

I always go to Nordstrom because their beauty department is so knowledgable and always so nice and helpful!

Well, while I was trying it on, the sales girl starts talking about this new product Clinique came out with called BIY Pigment Drops. I was in a huge rush and wasn’t really listening but told her ‘sure, go head and throw it in there too.’

I threw it into my suitcase for my beach trip and the rest is history. If I could travel the world and be a spokesperson for these BIY drops I totally would. They are revolutionary guys!

I am going to tell you below how to apply the drops and what to use them with, but try to get to your local Nordstrom to match your tint.

First, make sure you grab these products:

Now, I will explain how to use each one!

 1. Clinique Moisturizer:
Do you like to have SPF in your moisturizer? If so, go with the ‘Even Better’ in the white bottle. I used this while in the Dominican Republic and in Mexico to protect my face from the sun.
If you like a clear moisturizer without SPF, I love the ‘Moisture Surge’! It feels so good on!
Either Moisturizer is great with the BIY drops! You can also keep using the moisturizer you have been using daily! The drops work with everything!
Like I said, try to go into the store to get matched for color for the pigment drops. I am the color #140. I use two drops, but if you want more coverage, you can add additional drops! Just play around with it until you are happy!

3. Blend.
Now blend the moisturizer with the drops of pigment. BAM, you now have your own self-made tinted moisturizer. I love it so much because it is super light, it reminds you to moisturize, and it really is great coverage in a much more natural way!

4. Apply.
You can definitely just rub the moisturizer and pigment in your hand and then apply, or you can use the new Sonic System Airbrushed Finish Liquid Finish Applicator! I love this so much because I can just attach it to my Sonic System that I already own from Clinique. It really gives me an airbrush finish because it goes into every nook and cranny! Full coverage makeup with just two drops of pigment and some moisturizer! I told you it was genius!
Check my Instagram Stories tonight for a full tutorial as well! Then you will be all set to try it yourself!!
Seriously.. it is the most amazing invention haha!
Don’t forget to also grab these lip shades!
