Before I started the blogging journey I was the type of woman who had one lipstick for a 'special occasion', couple of lip glosses and most of the time I was wearing only lip balm on my lips. But that has changed dramatically over the last year! Not only my lipsticks collection is growing but also the love for them. Nowadays I wear lipstick every day if I'm wearing any makeup.
So when I started seeing the new Clinique Pop lipsticks appearing on different blogs I knew I had to treat myself to couple of them. To start with, how beautiful is the packaging?!
There are 16 shades to choose from but after a swatching session at the Clinique counter I decided on Nude Pop, everyday shade and Cherry Pop, something for an evening.
What does the Clinique say?
Luxurious yet weightless formula merges bold, saturated colour with a smoothing primer. Glides on effortlessly to give a modern-velvet finish. Colour stays true and keeps lips comfortably moisturised for 8 hours.
I absolutely agree that these lipsticks are very comfortable on the lips, they feel actually moisturising. I haven't noticed clinging to any dry skin and they apply smoothly, without dragging the lips. The pigmentation is great, and couple of swipes is enough to get a nice opacity. They have a satin/glossy finish but still last on the lips a good amount of time. I'd say that the longevity depends on the shade, the Nude Pop lasts on me around 3 hours and normally I like to reapply it after eating, the Cherry Pop stays on the lips for around 6 hours, even while eating and drinking, before I feel the need to touch it up.
Both shades wear off very evenly so there is no drama if you just forget to reapply the lipstick. While wearing the Cherry Pop I noticed that it slightly bled, which is quite normal for a bold shade but it's better to secure it with a lip liner.
Nude Pop is a pink nude shade, exactly 'my lips but better' kind of colour and I love it. It contains tiny silver sparkles that are not very visible but give a nice shine to the lips, you can't feel them but when the lipstick is wearing off I can notice them on my lips.
Cherry Pop is a beautiful deep pink red shade, one that I find very flattering on my skin tone.
Starting with the adorable, yet elegant packaging, finishing on the formula, I love everything about these lipsticks. Beautiful in your makeup bag and on your lips. I definitely want to add another shade to my collection, Grape Pop looks very nice :)
Have you tried the Clinique Pop lipsticks? Which shade is your favourite?
