You don’t really see the best of the Clinique Pop Liquid Mattes in their bottles – the bottle itself is blurred so the colour doesn’t show through as much as it should – the shades look quite muted from here but in fact, they are anything but.

You can see in the swatch that they’re verging on lip tar territory. A tested out the pink shade, second along, and actually didn’t find it drying or dry-feeling on the lip. There are nine shades available (and the Clinique offer for a free make up remover still applies with code POP16). The only critique I have really for the  Clinique Pop Liquid Mattes is that the applicator needs to be a bit finer for this level of pigment which needs absolute precision in application – as it is, it’s a bit unweildy and picks up a lot of product out of the tube.

The shades are less dry in this swatch and in parts completely dry in the other one. So, colours are: Sweetheart Pop, Petal Pop, Black Licorice Pop, Flame Pop, Cake Pop, Ripe Pop and Candied Apple Pop. If you love a wow red lip, Flame Pop is off the scale red! The Clinique Pop Liquid Mattes are £16 each HERE. If you love a watermelon shade for holiday, I’d really recommend Ripe Pop… it’s my favourite shade and shown below.
