A beauty buyer’s dream! Swap your old crap for lovely new stuff!

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 27 - 2010

High five – it’s a makeup amnesty!  Anyone fancy trying a new mascara?

How about a lovely deluxe sample of one of Clinique’s top-selling products?

Clinique are offering us this rather brilliant opportunity to take in one of our crappy old mascaras and exchange it at the counter for a deluxe sample of one of these alternatives!

You can choose between:

Clinique High Impact Mascara

Clinique High Lengths Mascara

The offer is valid from 29th October – 16th November exclusively in Boots and only while stocks last.

Absolutely no purchase is necessary but stop rummaging through your sister’s/mother’s/mate’s makeup drawers ‘cos it’s only one per client.  I SAW you!

I haven’t tried the High Impact (volumising) one yet, so will be hot-footing it down my nearest Boots/Clinique counter to give it a go.

If you want to see how the High Lengths (lengthening) looked on my lashes, click here for my review and some before/after shots.

Will you be ditching an old mascara and trading up for this offer?

I wanna know… which mascara will you be swapping and which of Clinique’s will you be choosing to replace it?

    Oooh I need to run to the Boots store!
    I will probably get the High Impact one.. Love ittt :)

  2. Ooh, not sure I’ll be able to make it to a store in time, but I’d like to swap a crappy old 17 one and try the High Impact Mascara because my eyebrows are so close to my eyes, lengthening mascaras tend to leave my eyelashes poking into them.

    Just wanted to let your readers in the US know that Clinique has a different but still fabulous offer going on at the moment: with an online purchase of $21.50, you get two super cute make-up bags with your choice of 6 deluxe samples: there’s one which is skincare, one mascara, one eye cream, one lip product, one eye palette… I don’t remember all of them, but I couldn’t pass such a great GWP! Hope that helps :) xxx

    I want to know how you learn about these great deals! I’m going to swap my old (about 5 years… don’t worry I don’t use it now haha) Avon mascara for the High Impact. I like full brushes more so I think that’s the one for me 😀
