A girlfriend did a post on this yesterday, and I commented on my HD powder swap, but last night it hit me about another swap that I found. Please excuse the quality of pictures coming your way…it’s dark out and the lighting up in this bia in terrible.
I received a clinique quad during a gift with purchase event that I fell in love with.
It’s almost gone now (well 2 of the colors) so I set out to replace the quad. Easy enough, right? Well Clinique is smart. You cannot buy that quad…you need to buy four different shadows/sets to recreate that look. Sneaky sneaky. So I searched and searched and honestly found one from N.Y.C. for $3.99. Can you believe it???
Splurge (replacements to recreate desired quad):
- Replacement Chocolate Chip: $15
- Replacement Stone Violet: $15
- Replacement Pink Chocolate (quad set): $27
- Replacement Blushing Nude (trio set): $24
- Total: $81
- NYC Quartet in South Street Seaport: $3.99
How’s THAT for a steal vs splurge!!! That’s $77 in savings, and you can take that to the bank…literally. Here are the colors swatched on a napkin…Clinique on top, N.Y.C. on the bottom. Identical.
Happy Friday y’all!
