When Clinique say pop, I listen! Honestly I do. The Clinique Cheek Pop blushers were one of my hugest (and I mean huge) obsessions last year and quite possibly my favourite blushers ever. Incidentally there are 4 news shades which I will show you very soon. But right now we are talking a different kind of pop. I have every shade of the brand new Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer lipsticks to show you and I am very excited about it. Find them here in stock now!

So excited in fact that I sat up well into the early hours applying each shade to my lips, snapping it, and then moving on to the next. The shades are stunning so it was pretty hard to say goodbye to some of them when I wiped them away, but fully worth it. I now have the ultimate Clinique Pop Lip Library!

So what’s this new kind of pop all about?

Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer lipstick Shades

Now this gorgeous new range has 16 shades that are grouped into 4 different colour families. I have been to-ing and fro-ing trying to decide whether to split the groups into 4 different posts to avoid overwhelming you – then I thought, let’s just go for it, as I did, and get a load of all the shades in one go! Get ready because there’s a whole lot of colour!

Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer lipstick – Nudes

I absolutely love this category! But then I think I am probably set to say that about Tawnies, Pinks and Violets too! Which is interesting because it isn’t often I like every shade from a whole collection. Anyway…

From left to right we have, Nude Pop 01, Bare Pop 02, Cola Pop 03 and Beige Pop 04.

I think Nude Pop is my favourite one here, but I keep changing my mind. I didn’t think I’d like Cola Pop but it is beautiful.

Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer lipstick – Tawnies

So in the Tawnies, which I am not entirely sure about the category name  as we have some serious poppy reds here, (but who cares?), we have Melon Pop 05, Poppy Pop 06, Passion Pop 07 and Cherry Pop 08.

I love Pinks for summer and I think Punch Pop and Wow Pop are pretty perfect.

Loving all these pops with extra time for Plum and Berry (and Grape!).

And it’s not just about colour. The texture and feel is so good. They are light but super nourishing and even after trying that many shades in such a short space of time, my lips actually felt like they had had a treat.

In terms of wear time, this is good. I have tested Melon Pop and it lasted really well and only needed a little touch up after eating. I’d imagine the darker shades would be even more long-wearing.

The Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer lipstick line up are in stock now Here They are £16 each which I think is an absolutely brilliant price. If you like colour, you will love them.

  1. I have to say, I only wish I was a blogger when I see things like this. I am so jealous. But, they look like great lipsticks. I think I will be checking out the nude, melon, and plum.

  2. I was really excited about these in the store when i tried them on. Bought 2 colors. Put one on in the car. The color came off by the ride home! Tried it on again and came off quickly again. I’m going back to the store for my money back. I’m going to get my old standby Chanel which I can count on to stay on for a long time and not get on my teeth.

  3. I’m a YSL loyalist but earlier last week the pop colours tempted me to try Clinique so I got the melon pop and grape pop and I did not expected it to be this fabulous 🙂 works really well my lips moisturized plus colorstay wise it’s worth what you paid for….I will still buy this one in the future…
    Happy customer here

  4. Omg, I just started transition, and these are some of my first lipsticks. Love the cherry pop and especially the punch pop. Now that I can wear it, I will be wearing lipstick all the time, but for now, this is my go to!
