Greetings to everyone reading my post!
As you all probably know, the Clinique brand has already released some of their very successful lipsticks + primers, which come in three collections - creams, mattes and semi-sheer. My lippie is from the semi-sheer collection which is called Pop Glaze.
I bought it 50% off.
Full price - $19.50
You know, the brand treats us with discounts rather frequently, so it is worth waiting for the sales and buy several shades of your favorite product at once.
A pretty pop of bold yet see-through colour + smoothing primer in one coat. Luxurious yet weightless formula with built-in primer glides on effortlessly, wears for up to 8 hours. Keeps lips comfortably moisturized instantly and over time.
I crush for lightweight and semi-sheer textures of lippies. I love how comfortable they are on my lips and I adore their glossy finish. If a lippie appears bright, given all that was mentioned, I’ll be more than just happy!
The package of the lippie is really compact and it takes the minimum of room in my makeup pouch.
Yet, it’s really lightweight at the same time.
The top cap is silver and the plastic casing is color-coded with the formula and the texture inside.
The matte lippies have matte casing, while those semi-sheer ones are semi-see-through and also color coded.
The idea is dope, especially if you have several Clinique lippies in your collection.
Everything is simple, frills-free of good quality.
The stick sits safely in the casing. It doesn’t touch the rims and when I use it, it never scratches over the sides of the casing.
Made in Belgium
The weight of the lippie: 3.9g
It’s so spring-like, fresh, pink yet at the same time not too bold. Thanks to the texture, I can easily fit it into my daytime makeup.
This is how it looks like on my skin (one coat):
The product on my lips under the natural daytime lights:
Here, everything is fine. Even the strictest buyer won’t find anything to be picky about. :):)The formula is unscented, as with many other products from the brand. This is the best option to eliminate the critics of the most smell-dissatisfied people.
The pigmentation is okay for a lippie of a semi-sheer coverage. The finish is bright even if I apply only one coat.
The texture is cream-gel. In the stick, the product may seem thick but when it touches my lips, it applies so smoothly. I can detect the coverage on my lips, which means that the formula isn’t so lightweight. Yet, at the same time finish isn’t tacky or greasy, I just feel the coverage on my lips, which isn’t discomforting for me.
Thanks to the primer base of the lippie, the coverage is smooth and even.
The finish is glossy and dewy.
The product doesn't define my lip disadvantages.
The staying power is excellent. Even though the formula isn’t transfer-proof and it does stain cups and dishes, it’ll still be rather tricky to wash it off. It tints my lips and stays on. The glossy finish is there for about 2 hours, after that it sets down and by the end of the day my lips look matte and tinted (if I don’t touch-up, of course).
There are no issues with this lippie on throughout the day. It doesn’t gather with a white film over my inner lip. It doesn’t budge, smear or settle down in my lip fine lines. It never lets me down.
My lips aren’t dry and in general, the formula is comfortable.
It’s easy to remove with any makeup remover.
It’s a perfect option for spring! I’ll definitely buy some other color from the Clinique Pop collection for summer.
If you love such textures, then I highly recommend you pay attention to this lippie!
Thanks for reading!
