When people talk about Clinique they always mention the skincare and foundation. You hardly hear people talk about their lip products, which is shame because they’re amazing. One of my all-time favorite lipsticks was Poppy Love by Clinique. I went through six tubes before the affordable high-end brand broke my heart and discontinued it. Now they’re offering their Clinique Pop Lip Colour and Primer.
Let me tell you, these are amazing. They have a small range of colors, ranging from nude to brights. These lipsticks go on amazingly. They apply smoothly, have nice color pigmentation, and feel absolutely amazing on the lips. The Clinique Pop gives my lips the moisturization they need all day long.
I picked up two shades: 13 Love Pop, and 14 Plum Pop. The downside to department stores are their lighting. I picked these two up and when I got home I noticed on pretty similar they are. They’re different when you look at them, but applied to my lips you don’t noticed a huge different. In fact the big difference is that Love Pop has a little shimmer to it.
Plum Pop is the perfect every day your lips but better lip color, and Love Pop is a nice pop of color that still works for your every day wear. While I love Plum Pop, I think Love Pop is my favorite. I don’t always wear makeup during the summer, and I love how this fun, bright pinky shade looks on my lips. I apply this and throw on some mascara and I’m out the door.
I’d say these lip colors last a good four to five hours before I have to re-apply. This is pretty typical for lipsticks. What’s nice is that I don’t have to apply my MAC Lip Treatment because this has a built-in primer to the lipsticks. This is what makes these lipsticks stand out and I highly recommend checking them out the next time you’re in a department store.
At $18.50, I do think these moisturizing lipsticks are reasonably priced and well worth the money. Always watch for gift with purchase or one of two Sephora VIB sales.
