NEW Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer Spring 2015 Collection Review, Photos, Swatches

Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer Review L to R:
Nude, Bare Melon, Punch, Cherry, Cola


Happy spring everyone!  I must say when I swatched all 16 Clinique Pop Lip Colours at the makeup counter my lips were very soft and hydrated when I got home.  Now thats a first ever and I am pretty darn impressed with that in itself.  These are the new Clinique Pop Lip Colour lipsticks that have a built-in smoothing primer and this I believe will lead the trend with other lipstick brands.

Most if not all the lipsticks applied effortlessly with a rich color scheme in one swipe.  It has a velvet finish and yet it feels weightless on the lips.  If you are allergic to fragrance, you are in luck as it is 100% fragrance-free like most Clinique makeup products.  It's formulated with shea and murumuru butters for hydrating the lips.  Very similar formulation to the expensive $50 Tom Ford lipsticks which have murumuru butter in their lipsticks as well.

These are as pigmented and vibrant as the Nars Audacious lipsticks, but the main difference is that the Clinique lipsticks are way more hydrating and have an easier glide of application due to the smoothing lip primer.  Also, you cannot beat the price of $18 per 3.9g of lipstick product.  I absolutely love the formulation and variety of the new Clinique Pop Lip Colours, but my personal favorite colors are Passion Pop 07, Punch Pop 10, and Cherry Pop 08.  Passion Pop is a stunning red-based with a slight orange color, Punch Pop is a raspberry fuchsia pink color, and Cherry Pop is more of a red-based pink color.

YSL has created two signature eyeshadow palettes in Tuxedo and Nude.  I purchased the YSL No 1 Nude Couture Variation Ten-Color Expert Eye Palette because it has a range of nudes.  The palettes were inspired by the fabrics made at Yves Saint Laurent's studio in Paris.

YSL Rouge Volupte + Rouge Pur Couture Lipsticks


Hello beauties!  I hope you are having a wonderful week.  Words can't describe a lipstick wrapped in a romantic, elegant gold case.  That my friend is the YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks.  It's long-lasting, vibrant color payoff, and most importantly a weightless feel on my lips.  As a #lipstickaddict I look for those three key components especially when you are a paying a premium for lipsticks in general.  Oh heck I sound soo serious rereading my words lol, but truly thats how I feel about an amazing lipstick :)  For a greater lip shine I love applying a layer of Gloss Volupte over Rouge Volupte.  I will share a couple of my favorite spring lipsticks below:
