With the arrival of the internet, consumer review sites like MakeUpAlley, and countless makeup blogs (ahem), I think the kind of experience we are looking for in a beauty counter is very different from our moms and grandmothers; we are better informed and more skeptical. Where previous generations might have listened closely while an SA explains a fantastic new eyeshadow, we're already thinking, pfft, Temptalia said it's chalky crap. (Not that people don't want to listen to SAs anymore, just that we have more sources of information readily available.) The new Clinique counter is created with consumers like me in mind, who prefer to explore products on their own, while still offering the full support and customer experience of a traditional beauty counter.

Overall, I'm extremely impressed and genuinely excited about all of the thought and details Clinique has put into designing this new counter. The space is very inviting and fun, and the gorgeous, modern look doesn't hurt either. I wish more beauty counters were like this! What do you think of Clinique's new "Service as you like it"? What colour band would you wear?
