Yesterday I finally bought one of Clinique’s new Pop Lip Colour and Primer Lipsticks! I will admit, this is actually my first product of their’s, but I was definitely not disappointed. I also hope to try their skin range in the future as it’s been highly recommended, so if anyone else is a user of Clinique, please let me know, I’d love to hear more opinions.
I’ve heard wonderful things about this brand for quite a while now and started to noticed a lot adverts in magazines of their new lipsticks, so I finally decided to give one a try. The lipsticks are priced at £16 so not cheap, but not too expensive either. It’s definitely a quality product and I’m all for paying a reasonable price if the item is worth it.
The thing I liked most about the lipstick was of course, the packaging! I do love details and the lipstick is very aesthetically pleasing. I love how the container actually matches the colour of the lipstick, it’s such a cool idea and makes their lipsticks stand out from the rest. The names are really cute too, Cherry Pop sounds so vibrant and chic!
Not only is the product a lipstick but it’s also a primer, so I actually did the unthinkable and wore the colour without a lip pencil! I was skeptical that it would last the eight hours it claims to, but I haven’t had to retouch it once. Ironically enough I really wanted to reapply because the lipstick is so beautiful, but I know it’s a good thing that I didn’t have to.
The lipstick is so smooth and shiny, it hasn’t dried my lips out at all and has kept them moisturized and crack free all day. It’s such a classic red colour too, perfect for vintage lovers like myself, I feel like I’m back in the 1940s and 1950s! The texture almost looks like a lip gloss, however, it isn’t sticky at all, just wonderful!
I absolutely adore the green floral packaging that the lipstick came in, details really make a product and I will actually keep it because it’s so pretty and has a vintage look to it. The only downside I can think of about the lipstick is in the lid, it’s pretty hard to open and close, although I guess that could be considered a good thing. There are fifteen other colours in the collection and I will definitely be trying some other colours in the future.
The first picture was taken after I’d just applied the lipstick, the second picture was taken an hour and a half or so later after I’d had my lunch and the last picture was taken some six hours after I first applied the lipstick. I’m very impressed with how long it’s lasted, not one reapplication!
I also bought another Eye Liner; Rimmel London Scandal Eyes again, but this time the Precision Micro Eyeliner. As I’ve said in a previous post, I bought the Thick and Thin Eyeliner and although I do like it, I much prefer this one. The thinner tip is a lot easier to apply to the eyelid, it reaches right to the root of the eyelash and this time I didn’t need to put my liquid eyeliner over. I love that the tip is small as I much prefer building my eyeliner up then starting off with it far too thick and having to redo it all.
