Clinique have a new lipstick and in my opinion, it’s a bit of a game changer.
Not usually known for their lippies, the new Pop Lip Colour and Primer lovelies may just change that!
Available in 16 shades within 4 different colour ways; Nudes,Tawnies, Pinks and Voilets, these colour rich lipsticks have a built in primer which helps to define, smooth and nourish lips all day long.
Formulated with Shea and Murumuru butters, they are combined into a flexible polymer blend that provides superior moisture maintenance for your lips.
The benefit of the primer creates a smoothing, velvety spread of colour on application and helps to keep your colour vivid throughout the day.
I have to be honest, I’ve never used a lip primer before so was interested to see if it would make any difference to the longevity and feel of the lipstick, but before I go into that- HOW pretty are these lipsticks!
Packaged in chic, modern looking square sticks with mirror like silver lids, the shade within is reflected on the outer packaging which looks fabulous if you ask me!
The lipstick within is a beautifully rich, creamy texture and glides onto your lips beautifully leaving a velvety soft finish.

Unlike many lippies, these are not drying in the slightest and I was very impressed with the combination of vibrant colour and their moisturising properties.
You often find that with moisturising lippies, the colours are often weak, streaky and lacking lustre, but this is definitely not the case with the Pop Lip colours.
I tested out a vibrant pink, 09 Sweet Pop, a sugar sweet pink 12 Fab Pop and a nude, 04 Beige Pop.

I found that the lighter pink, Fab Pop required slightly more attention when applying in terms of building the colour without any streakiness. By that I mean it took two coats rather than just one, so hardly a deal breaker.
|Wearing 04 Beige Pop|
I’m not usually a ‘nude’ lippie girl as those colours tend to make me look washed out, but I actually really liked Beige Pop, so I’m now a nude convert, thanks Clinique.
|Wearing 09 Sweet Pop|
I LOVE the shade Sweet Pop! It’s perfect for my skin tone and offers a lovely, wearable, summery shade.
The best thing about these lipsticks is that you don’t feel like you’re wearing a lipstick.
It feel like you’re wearing a lip balm, as your lips stay soft and silky all day and when you do need to top up, the colour wears evenly off your lips.
Clinique’s Pop Lip Colour and Primer Lipsticks get a huge thumbs up from me!
