Up until recently I would've never made a bee line for clinique's makeup, skincare yes but makeup no. However the recent releases by Clinique have completely changed my opinion and now make them one of my favourite brands as a whole. I am completely obsessed by the original lip pops, but now with the recent shade extension and lip liners I am genuinely worried for my bank balance.
If you haven't tried the lip pops before, get yourself to a counter now! I would say they are up there now with Mac lipsticks for me. The formula is so creamy and rich, plus the pigmentation is lovely. The pops contain a primer in the formulation which means they have an 8hour wear to them so you don't have to keep on reapplying throughout the day. I made a bee line to the Reds and berry colours and will say I was amazed by how long the colour actually stays on the lips for.

The liners are a lovely added extra. I've tried the old Clinique lip liners and wasn't impressed with the colour selection or the texture if I'm honest. The new lip liners are a lovely creamy texture unlike many that are very drying on the lips. The shades are great and cover all bases and they're overall just amazing!
I would 100% recommend these to a friend, I think I have about 6 already and have my eye on a few other shades. If your looking for a good quality lipstick that's going to last, get yourself down to your nearest Clinique counter!
