Personally, I’m not much of a lip liner but they’re very useful if you’re in the Beauty+ category and losing your lip line definition. I definitely have this on one side of my top lip but it’s not enough, yet, that it needs radical correction. Lip liners got a bad rap when there was a trend for wearing a strong shade to define the lip line and a paler shade on the actual lip. I’ll throw my hands up now and confess that I loved that trend!
Shade wise, in the swatch from bottom to top, are: Intense Cranberry, Intense Sassafrass, Intense Punch, Intense Cayenne and Intense Cafe, but there are 12 new shades.
New shades of Clinique Pop Lip Colour are much more interesting (to me) – I wore these all summer (mainly Melon Pop) because they have a very moisturising feel to them and they’re one of the few lipsticks that has that same mwah thing as gloss does but not the stickiness. They’re supposed to have a smoothing ‘primer’ element to them but that aspect has remained a complete mystery to me.
These shades – Blush Pop and Papaya Pop – are an easy wear, but there are 8 shades in total. These aren’t supposed to launch until tomorrow but I’ve spotted them HERE at £16 each and £14.50 for the Quick Liners. I did a preview post on these a while ago HERE with some other shade swatches, and if you’re looking to do Rouge Noir without the dryness opt for Rebel Pop.
