Clinique Pop Lipstick in Punch Pop, Grape Pop, Cola Pop and Plum Pop

Clinique have a new lipstick out, simply entitled Clinique Pop, and it claims to combine pigmented lipstick with smoothing primer for comfortable all-day colour.  The packaging is a bit of a departure for Clinique, moving away from their instantly recognisable ribbed silver bullet (that sounds dirty, right?) towards a new chic square bullet with a colour coded base.

The lipsticks themselves are indeed high pigment - and in the tube they look almost like plastic, such is the colour intensity, the simple cream finish, and the shine.  On the lips, they look just as good.

Punch Pop
 Punch Pop is a bright, punchy pink with clean, neutral to cool undertones.

Grape Pop
Grape Pop is a very cool toned blue/lilac colour, and whilst I suspect it'd look stunning on darker skin tones, it looks a bit, well, corpse-like on me.

Cola Pop
 The name Cola Pop is a bit misleading - this isn't a true brown, but rather a brown toned brick red.  It's pigmented enough, but not at all overdone - if you want to wear a full pigment red without being all shouty, this one is great.

Plum Pop
Plum Pop, my favourite of the four shades I have, is a lovely neutral lilac-pink which goes straight into my perfect neutral lipstick drawer - I can't stand beige toned nudes, and usually go more for cool pinks to avoid looking washed out.  This is a perfect example of a my-lips-but-better pink.

Texture wise, these lipsticks are buttery as hell, feel lightweight on the lip, and apply very smoothly, giving perfect opaque coverage in one swipe.  They remain smooth and comfortable on the lips for four to five hours, and the colour eventually fades down evenly, although I still had a trace of Plum Pop on my pout a good eight hours after application.

With a staggering 16 shades on offer, a gloriously creamy texture, and good wear, these Clinique Pop lipsticks are a great buy - and at £16, they're not wildly expensive either.  Find them now at Boots, and at the Clinique website and non-Boots Clinique counters from April 17th.
