Clinique says that matte is the new black and I have to say I love a matte where lips are concerned. And in honour of this there’s a brand new Pop lip formulation – pop goes matte! Here’s a look at the brand new Clinique Pop Matte Lip Colour + Primer with lots of photos and swatches.
So this is the new matte. We are promised no drying, uncomfortable textures but a brand new formulation that locks in moisture whilst still delivering high impact colour.

Clinique Pop Matte Lip Colour + Primer Swatches
I have 6 of the permanent shades to show you here – Blushing Pop, Icon Pop, Ruby Pop, Mod Pop, Rose Pop, Peony Pop:
I love the texture and pigmentation so much and the feel is extremely comfortable, like a velvety balm. As a fan of the Pop lip packaging already, I think the matte finish on the casing looks so good!
So far my faves are Ruby Pop and Peony Pop. One statement and one easy to wear shade right there.
There’s also another really exciting Pop Lip launch in the form of a liquid lipstick – the Clinique Pop Liquid Matte Lip Colour + Primer which looks just like the Pop Lacquers but this time in a matte finish. I can’t wait to show you those. Tune into my snapchat to see them on my lips.
