Clinique Pop Lips lipstick review

You can pretty much guarantee that there’s always at least one of Clinique’s Chubby Sticks in my handbag at any one point but I’ve been feeling rather guilty of late as they’ve been somewhat neglected. Neglected due to the fact I am OBSESSED with the new Pop Lips* from Clinique. They literally haven’t left my makeup bag since they dropped through the letterbox a couple of weeks ago.

Pop Lips are the latest lip innovation from Clinique and combine a lip primer with a creamy textured lipstick all in one stick. They look pretty much like your standard lipstick in the tube – there’s no kind of ‘primer/lipstick swirl’ going on but once applied, they add a nice pop of colour to the lips, with a hydrating, long-wearing formula.

For me, these seem to blend the best bits of a more sheer formulated lipstick with those of a matte. You get a semi-sheen finish, with a nice amount of colour, without them being overwhelming. You can build them up for greater intensity if you like, but a single swipe works just as well for a for subtle look.

There are 16 shades in the range to choose from, and have been grouped into three colour groups to help make it easier to find a shade you might like. Choose from the nudes, the berries or the pinks and then select a shade from within your colour group.

My absolute favourite has to be Fab Pop which is a candy coloured, blue-based pink that is super flattering when worn. It’s not your typical bold pink (try Wow Pop for that) or a ‘my lips but better’ pink but one that actually looks like you’re wearing lippie without being too in your face. I’ve been wearing this shade non-stop for two weeks now and I’m already planning to buy a backup for when it inevitably runs out. Which NEVER happens.

They're not the longest lasting lipsticks I've ever tried - I get about 3 hours wear before needing a top up, but the easy to wear formula is making them a firm favourite.

Clinique Pop Lips are priced £16 each and can be found across all Clinique counters and online stockists now.

Do you like the sound of the new lipsticks from Clinique?
