Eight new creamy spring shades

We're seeing so much colour from Clinique at the moment, I think the next 12 months are going to spell a huge brand overhaul from them.

The latest instalment is in the form of a new Soft Matte Lipstick formula in eight new shades. Matte lipsticks normally equate to dry, chalky textures, but these are a total dream in a creamy formula that doesn’t feather and lasts the long haul.

Here’s the nitty gritty…

  • Pigment comes from Cetyl Octanoate
  • Porous Silica beads set the colour
  • A Beeswax derivative adds moisture to the formula

And here’s the girl to girl verdict…

  • You don’t have to reapply them every five minutes
  • They’re bright!
  • No where near as dry as other matte formulas
  • They feel velvety on your lips

You’re going to love them. There’s still some subtler shades in here that your mom or grandmother are going to get on well with, but as a twenty-something girl I feel that the brighter shades are fresh and on trend.

L-R: Matte Magenta, Matte Petal and Matte Peony.

First Cheek Pops, now these? I’m keeping a close eye on what’s coming next. Clinique are quickly establishing themselves as a new player in the colour category.

Also, if you keep up with Jane on British Beauty Blogger you’ll have seen that they’re launching a new skin cleansing device (i.e. a Clinique variation on a Clarisonic) in the next few months. This is going to be the 4th step in their iconic 3-Step routine, so it’s a big time of change for Clinique. And if you’ve never quite been able to afford a Clarisonic, a little birdie tells me that this one might just be that bit more pleasingly priced…

Long Last Soft Matte Lipsticks are £18 in store and from www.clinique.co.uk. Start your discovery with my personal favourite, Matte Peony, the perfect summer shade.
