Clinique's come up with a new line of gorgeous Lip Colours and Glosswears so wide in variety that just about anyone can wear them.
Their New High Impact Lip Colour SPF 15 are not only smooth and comfortable on the lips, but they're great in that they both moisturize and protect from UVA and UVB rays. A great thing about the lipsticks is that when applied, the color stays vivid for hours. In other words, the Lip Colour's pretty much long-lasting, and you won't have to spend every other hour touching up. The colours Clinique advertise fall into four categories: Nudes, Tawnies, Pinks, and Violets.
Me, I've always been a "pink" person, as far as lip shades go. So it's no surprise that I'm going to talk about my favorite shade in the Pinks category, Honey Blush. Honey Blush is somewhat of a rose color with sort of golden honey attributes (hence the name, Honey Blush). It's truly a gorgeous shade when applied to the lips - in a way, it almost has a "pinky-coral" tint to it (but this may depend upon the lighting and whatnot). Whatever color it may be, it's a pleasant shade on the lips and is so comfortable, you'll forget you're even wearing it.
Along with this particular Lip Colour, there's a certain shade of Glosswear that I like using as a top coat. Like the High Impact Lip Colours, Clinique's Long Last Glosswear SPF 15 are categorized into the four categories of Nudes, Tawnies, Pinks, and Violets.
Although Honey Blush was classified officially as a "Pink," I found that one of the Nudes in the Glosswear added a nice flair to the look - Guavagold. This is a sheer, peachy-pink gloss with golden undertones. This, of course, is also a long lasting gloss so you won't have to reapply coats all that often.
Since this is a gloss, you can also apply it onto bare lips, rather than coating it over a lipshick shade. In my opinion, it's the type of shade that enhances your lips - it's still slightly tinted, but it's still your lips, only better. Be sure to snatch up your perfect shade before it's sold out!
Another great product from Clinique I tried, is the New Defining Liner for Lips in Cider. This shades falls under the "Tawnies" category. It's a lovely soft warm bronzey brownish shade that would look great on olive or tanned skin. It offers a creamy smooth application due to a high level of cushiony feeling oils.
This long-wearing formula (up to 8 hours) pairs perfectly with Clinique's new High Impact Lip Colour SPF 15.
What I love about this liner is that it comes with a convenient built-in sharpener. Is that cool or what? I love this innovative concept. I hope Clinique does this with their eye liners too!
