We all have our favorite lipstick formulas; whether it’s cream, matte or something in between. What I always wish for is a product that has the lasting power and pigmentation of a lipstick, but the conditioning feel of a balm. Clinique gives me the best of both worlds with new Pop Lip Colour + Primer!
Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer uses a new formula with a built-in primer that nourishes and smoothes lips. I love that there are Shea and Murumuru butter for a soft, balmy texture. The other great thing is the weightless velvety finish and rich, vibrant colors.
I tried three shades of Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer: Bare Pop (pink-nude with a bit of a shimmer), Beige Pop (beige-pink) and Fab Pop (medium pink). Of the three shades, my favorite is Bare Pop. It’s that perfect shade of “my lips but better”. It looks so natural, yet polished.
What impressed me with all three shades is the saturated color and the moisturization. The color stays true and is long wearing. Blame the hormones, but my lips never feel like they get enough moisture and honestly, I don’t have that feeling when I’m wearing this lipstick at all.
Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer ($18) is available in department stores including Nordstrom, Sephora and at clinique.com. If you like creamy pigmented color that doesn’t feel heavy on your lips, definitely give this one a try!
