You’ll understand how excited I am to write this post when I tell you that I fell in love with this lipstick a good while ago on a shoot with Clinique. A long lasting soft matte lipstick that is so much more than a matte lipstick? Give me everything Clinique!! It was hard to keep a secret this good…somehow I managed it!

This is no ordinary matte lipstick. Clinique have spent 3 years creating a non-drying, life proof formula, tested by girls that drink coffee, talk and eat – I think we are taking you and me! This is what Clinique call a rigorous wear test and the results said Clinique Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick retained 60% of its colour and cover throughout! Not bad hey?

You want some science? The intense pigments are ground in Cetyl Octanoate which is an ingredient that develops colour to its true intensity. There are agents to set colour and ingredients to deliver long moisturisation. In fact one of the polymers used in the lipsticks was originally intended to prevent moisture loss on a clinical level. They are serious about moisture here! 
There are 8 rich, bright bold shades:
Matte Crimson 45
Matte Mandarin 46
Matte Peony 47
Matte Petal 48
Matte Magenta 49
Matte Beauty 50
Matte Plum 51
Matte Suede – coming soon
Here they are all swatched:
