The Clinique x Marimekko collaboration coming in February is nothing short of gorgeous. What a perfect pairing. If you’ve been on the Clinique website recently, you might have spotted a Marimekko bag with their gift with purchase (it’s a good one if you spend £45 HERE) which was a little hint at what was to come.
If you don’t know Marimekko, it’s a Finnish design company founded in 1951 – Annika Rimala was a key designer for the brand taking them through the sixties with her bold and bright patterns, and noted to be one of the most influential designers of that time. Her patterns are the ones that have been chosen for this collaboration with Clinique – I love that they’re as relevant now as they were at inception.
Clinique has brought their brightest and boldest shades out for this one – quite right too. I’d forgotten how creamy Clinique lipsticks are but if you veer more to sheers for your face, there are six glosses too that fall into that category.
I’ve swatched everything up so I thought I’d put the colour, followed by the name and date of the Marimekko designs. They’re £17. Here we go!
Elizabeth Arden Hyaluronic Acid Ceramide Capsules
I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
From bottom to top: Grape Pop in Keidas, 1967, Nude Pop in Kuka, 1965, Berry Pop (Hedelmakori, 1964), Punch Pop in Laine, 1965, Raspberry Pop in Papajo, 1968 and Poppy Pop also in Hedelmakori, 1964.
The Clinique Pop Splash glosses are sheer in shade and exceptionally light on the lip – there’s no stick, just that satisfying slip feel to them. They’ve also been given a watermelon infusion for extra hydration and are £17 each.
Shades are Air Kiss in Laine, 1965, Spritz Pop in Kukka, 1965, Caramel Pop in Papajo, 1968, Rosewater Pop in Klaava, 1967, Tenderheart in Keidas 1967, Fruity Pop in Keidas also. There are a couple of prints in my reference list that aren’t on any of these lipsticks so I wonder if there is something else on its way too or perhaps I don’t have the full run down. Either way, what a treat!
