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.
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.
