More Matte Lips - this time from Clinique

1 min read

Matte is DEFINITELY the new black, to use fashion parlance in the beauty world! Matte liptick is everywhere, and everyone has one. Last week we looked at Boots SEVENTEEN’s new mattes, this week it’s the turn of Clinique.

Clinique’s new mattes are in lipstick and liquid form. So, there’s the Clinique Pop Matte Matte Lip Color + Primer (£16), and the Clinique Pop Liquid Matte Lip Color + Primer (£20).

Clinique NEW matte lipsticks

The former is the lipstick format, and is creamy and lightweight, yet very matte. The built-in primer seals in moisture, making the matte wearable and on-drying. The Seventeen mattes do dry out a wee bit, and the Urban Decay mega mattes are superb – moisturising and matte.

This one is pretty good as well. Very matte, highly pigmented, and doesn’t dry out too much. It comes in 16 different shades, including four limited edition shades – Peppermint Pop, Shock Pop, Avant Garde Pop, and Clove Pop.

I really do love the liquid matte though – this hybrid liquid lippy contains a blend of lip pampering oils and antioxidants like Avocado Oil, Sunflower Oil, and Vitamin E. You apply this as a liquid and then it transforms to a matte finish, and it really does! Apply to clean bare lips, from the middle out.
