Clinique Pop Lip Review & Swatches


If I was a lipstick I’d be a Clinique Pop Lip - as this new formula has just about everything going for it that a girl lipstick could ask for. Colour and Primer in one, Pop Lip coats the lips with smooth, intense colour and instant moisture. It’s probably easiest if I transcribe the list of reasons why I love these, starting at the shallow end…

  • Chic, colour coded packaging (immediately justifying more than one - just so that you can pick out your favourite with ease)
  • 16 beautiful colours in Nudes, Tawnies, Pinks & Violets to suit every complexion (I’d wear at least 12 of them)
  • Moisture without compromising on colour. I do like a sheer coloured lip, but a proper pop of colour that feels like balm = winning. Shea Murumuru butters help with this.
  • Longevity. That’s the primer bit - essentially built in primer to add lasting power. A moisturising finish AND longevity. Is this magic?




Gorgeous, right? Poppy Pop is the kind of orange toned red that I just love for Spring & Summer. Wow Pop is a bright, blue toned pink that’s softer and more wearable than fuchsia. Beige Pop is about as nude as I can go minus mannequin lips - I need a serious smoky eye to balance this one out. Melon Pop is a really pretty peach that has graced my lips most days this week.


Poppy and Melon (above) are my favourite of the four, but there are TWELVE more to choose from - and personally I can’t wait.

The RRP of £16 is neither cheap nor extortionate… considering that so many lipsticks are now priced at £26 or even £36 these days, I think you’re getting a lot for your dollar here - and I have a feeling my Lipstick Wardrobe will be growing very soon. (no that doesn’t actually exist)
