Clinique Pop Matte in Blushing Pop

Clinique Pop Matte in Blushing Pop

Over Valentines, Clinique were giving away some of their best selling products on twitter. I was fortunate enough to win one of them: the Clinique Pop Matte in Blushing Pop. This wasn’t the post I had planned for today, but it was half written and easy to post. I’m not organised, I’m sorry!

Clinique is a brand that I sort of forget about, but I love most products I try from them. Their All About Eyes Eye Cream and their Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion are both some of my favourite products on the market, but I never really touch their makeup. Not that I don’t love them!

Back in December 2015, Glamour were giving away miniatures of the original Clinique Pop lipsticks. I picked up both shades (Nude Pop and Cherry Pop) and fell in love, so I was super excited to try the matte version.

Blushing Pop is a gorgeous nude –  just a hair pinker that MAC Velvet Teddy (my every day lipstick for work) – and wears beautifully. The additional primer aspect makes your lips smooth alongside application, and this is nowhere near drying. It’s not quite as matte as I usually go for in a lipstick, but it’s less harsh on my lips than any other lipstick I own – even sheerer lipsticks. More lip products needs to have a 2-in-1 primer aspect in my opinion, because this has wowed me no end.

Blushing Pop is well pigmented, long-ish wearing (it’s no liquid lipstick, but I can make it until elevensies without a top up), it doesn’t feather and is super comfortable. I couldn’t ask for more in a lipstick – especially one that I’ve not paid for myself! I’m so looking forward to trying a few more shades from the collection; I’ve got my eyes firmly on Beach Pop and Avant Garde Pop. Oh, and of course their liquid lipsticks!

Have you tried any of these lipsticks? What do you think?
