New Clinique Make-up Launches (March 2016)
Oh gosh there is so much gorgeous newness from Clinique that I’m actually mentally preparing myself to avoid all counters for a little while until I’ve worked my way through some of my current collection, as I know I’m going to be far too tempted! I’m also very lucky to have a PR friend who knows me extremely well, as check out the colours I was sent…could they be more me?! There are three main new colour launches that are being added to the ever-expanding and completely glorious Colour Pop Line, so let’s have a look at what’s new:
There are two new lip launches, starting with the one that I think most people will navigate towards, which is the Clinique Pop Lacquer Lip Colour + Primer. These are the glossier, sexier sisters to the original Pop Lip lipsticks, as these are lipstick/gloss hybrids that offer a full and complete colour payoff in a lipgloss application. These are rich, glossy and beautifully pigmented, plus the initial launch colours are perfect, with a great mix of nudes, pinks, brights and berries. The two above are Sweetie Pop (left) and Go Go Pop (right) and I will pretty much definitely be adding Wink to the collection too. These are £16 here – link.
The new Clinique Lid Pops are presented in the same floral embossed powder form as the original Cheek Pops which I remember everyone went crazy for, so the arrival of the Lid Pops should evoke a similar level of excitement! There are eight shades to start with, that again cover a good mix from pale nudes, to deep vampy shades, along with some great brights in the middle. The shades I have are Vanilla Pop – which is a pale, shimmery, highlighter shade and Willow Pop, which is a gorgeous khaki shade; I love anything khaki for the eye, and Willow Pop is spot-on. These are £15 each – link.
You know how I like to save the best ’til last, so I’ve done it again here, saving the new Clinique Pop Glaze Sheer Lip Colour + Primers. These are going to be my undoing (and the reason I need to avoid Clinique counters) as these are just perfect; hydrating, glossy, pretty, sheer but with a surprisingly good payoff…they’re just beautiful! Of course the shade I perved over most of all is Bubblegum Pop – one of the most perfect pinks I’ve come across in quite a while – but there are five other shades, and to be honest I wouldn’t kick any of them out of bed. These are £16 here – link – and you need at least one in your life. I need at least four.
The swatches above are, from left to right, Clinique Pop Lacquer Lip Colour + Primer in Go Go Pop and Sweetie Pop, Clinique Pop Glaze Sheer Lip Colour + Primer in Bubblegum Pop and Lid Pops in Vanilla Pop and Willow Pop. As you can see, lots of gorgeousness has just launched from the Clinique colour line, but if you’re more of a skincare fan, there are some great skincare launches heading our way too…more on that very soon!
