Unlike MAC, Clinique operates entirely out of department store counters. Its website does have a store locator, but it does not have an online booking service — that made things a little difficult to plan. To book an appointment at Clinique, I called my nearest Macy's, navigated its automated receptionist, and reserved a time for what the folks at the counter call a "Clinique makeover.

The artist's work also comes free of charge — all you have to do is buy any three Clinique items of your choice. I should not have been surprised by this action, given Clinique's emphasis on skin care, but I was anyway. While doing this, he asked me about my daily preferences rather than what I'd choose to wear for a night on the town.
And despite the fact that I told him I needed a dramatic night look, he was light-handed with blush, bronzer, and highlighter. He smudged the brown shade all over my lid but focused the purple just on the outer corner of the eye. To his credit, he spent full minutes blending these shadows together, but due to their cream consistency, they didn't budge much. The employee he asked to apply my liner did so without issue, but you can blatantly see the smudges left from the makeup remover.
And this "dark lip" is lighter than the neutral lip I received at MAC. Certainly not dark by night-makeup standards.

Naturally, this simple look felt a lot more comfortable than MAC's, but comfort is my last concern when I'm trying to look good on a glamorous night out. If I was actually heading to a birthday party or an important event in this, I'd be disappointed. The look was near perfect for my regular day in the office — but should it have taken over an hour to achieve it? I'm still wondering.
That being said, I would not return to Clinique for makeup application, especially for an event that requires looking bold. Skin care tips, on the other hand? I'm all ears. And let's be honest, if you're going out, you're going to want drama. At least, on your face, anyway. Nicola Dall'Asen nicoladallasen.

I use almost exclusively MAC products and am very familiar with their line. Oh ok, is Macys far from the forum shop store? I will have a look online perhaps I could book it there instead if the service is better Macy's is at the mall down the street.

I wanted to much to do the Pro store especially because we stayed at Caesars. When I called Macys they were more than happy to help me. I did purchase product One thing I've always wondered I know they work on commission and are in fact, very well paid at Macy's I do here, but I've had the same MAC girl for myself and my daughter for five years.
I don't tip at make up counters because, as you've already mentioned, they are on commission. I also agree that you would be better off with the MAC counter at Macy's. The MAC store in the Forum tends to become overcrowded. Another option if you are staying at Caesars is getting your makeup done in their salon on the same level as Qua spa.
I had a very positive experience the last time I was there, and they gave me a glass of champagne :. When I was in the Forum Shops store last month the music was ear-splittingly loud.
I could hardly hear what the assistant was saying and kept asking her to repeat herself. I don't know if this is normal, but there is no way I would want to be in there for a moment longer than absolutely necessary.
