When it comes to Summer, I often try to wear something to showcase my lips more. 9 out of 10 times I would gravitate towards wearing warm or nude lipstick shades. In 2018, I plan to change that and introduce some pretty hues to my makeup routine. Continue reading to learn more.
*Clinique Pop™ Matte Lip Colour + Primer 3.9g $40
The Clinique pop lipsticks are my favourite formulas and I have enjoyed collecting them in the travel sizes. I was excited to learn about the new pop matte lip colour + primer collection, which is my favourite kind of finish. These matte lip colour + primer have fantastic pigmentation and longevity–the more intense and dark shades tend to stain the lips more than those of light-medium shades.
I found peony pop to appear more nude with a hint of pink and is a nice hue to wear on the daily. Also, rose pop appeared more reddish-purple and is a bold and rich shade that is perfect for a night out of town. Both colours feel comfortable on the lips without colour bleeding and are very hydrating. I would definitely look into exploring this collection more.
*Clinique Pop Lip Colour and Primer (Fab + Sweet Pop) 3.9g $40
These original pop lip colour and primer lipsticks were essential what drove me to want to collect as many shades from this range. I adored them in the travel sizes as I own about 6 and adding these full size makes me happy.
I found fab pop more like a barbie pink, which when I wear seems to look good on my skin tone. That may be different for others with light skin tones, but this shade looks good if you have medium to tan skin complexions. The sweet pop shade, which I also carry in the travel size is this gorgeous medium pink shade that looks like something I could wear confidently on the daily too.
Both of these original lip colour and primer have a creamy consistency with a shine finish that also feel comfortable on the lips. Just like the matte lip colour + primer lipsticks, these are very moisturising and pigmentation varies on each shade and how they appear from lip to lip.
