During colder months, the lipstick shades that I reach for most of the time are nudes, muted purples and berries. It seems that this autumn, I’m keeping the tradition alive.
In the past few weeks, I’ve been using mainly two lipsticks. They’re both from the Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer range which is famous for the rich colour lipsticks and smoothing primer in one. They feel incredibly nourishing on the lips, thanks to the Shea Butter and Murumuru Butter, Apricot Kernel Oil and Olive Fruit Extract added, so these lipsticks are very balmy and light but at the same time the colour is intense and lasts long time. Flexible polymers keep the colour vibrant and fresh, while the product glides on smoothly to a soft-shine finish. During the day, I only need a light touch-up after eating, these lipsticks are really long-wearing.
04 Beige Pop* is a lovely opaque soft, pinkish nude, not too brown, not too pink, just a nice everyday shade that has a delicate sheen to it. I usually apply it with dabbing motions for a natural look and then blend it in with my finger tips. Occasionally, I add gloss on top.
Now, I have a confession to make. I’m scared of red lipsticks. I love them, I adore how they look on other girls but I always think they don’t really suit me. However, I fell in love with the next one and I’ve been wearing it a lot since I got it. 15 Berry Pop* is such a beautiful and intense deep berry shade with a hint of purple! It has a velvet finish and the colour doesn’t bleed or smudge.
I love how these lipsticks have no fragrance or taste (100% fragrance-free and allergy tested like all Clinique products) because we all know how overpowering some lipsticks’ smell can be. The formula is creamy and fades really naturally.
If you’re looking for a lipstick that feels like a balm but also gives opaque finish, be sure to check this range out. Pigment and comfort in one! These lipsticks are always in my handbag now, I’m in love with the shades and will keep wearing them in the winter, as well.
I’m really curious to swatch the 8 new Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer lipstick shades that were recently launched, as they all look beautiful in pictures and I’m still trying to find Plum Pop which seems to be sold out all the time, not only in Norway but just wherever I go.
