I loved the original Clinique Pops – Blush Pop is one of the few lipsticks I actually wear regularly. It’s described as a demi-matte lipstick and primer but to be honest, the primer element is a bit of a fail because I associated a primer with longer wear and you could never describe the lipsticks as long wear. It’s the same with the new Clinique Pop Matte Lip Colour + Primer – primer element doesn’t help with longevity at all.
However, if you don’t mind a bit of reapplication (because beyond a doubt you will need to reapply) the colour line up is absolutely lovely and the formula doesn’t seem to have the drying aspect that I associate with mattes. Coral Pop (3rd up) is the most beautiful, flattering and vibrant colour that’s perfect for holiday sunshine. If you like mattes, and don’t mind a bit of reapplication, I think that shade will seduce you!
So, in the swatch, the shades are: Peony Pop, Pow Pop, Coral Pop, Beach Pop, Icon Pop and Mod Pop. There are 16 colours in the Clinique Pop Matte Lip Colour + Primer line up and they’re £16 each. Looking for the link I notice that there is an offer for a free Take The Day Off Makeup Remover (30ml) with any Clinique Pop product using code POP16 HERE.

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
