I think the Clinique brand gets an undeserved reputation for being…for the older ladies. I rarely see a blogger or beauty you-tuber who is extremely enthusiastic about THE NEW CLINIQUE THING ZOOOOOMG. But I’m over here with this little secret, because I confess, I love Clinique lipsticks.
I remember when I was a little girl my grandmother used to get those free gifts with purchase so she used to give them to my mom. This was when Clinique’s lipsticks still had the mint green and silver packaging (the have since updated to a sleek silver embossed tube). I went through my mom’s make up drawer every time she let me, to open the lipsticks and look at the pretty colors.
Running through the list of colors now, I recognize and hold a nostalgic significance to the names; Berry Freeze, Dubonnet, Think Bronze, Watermelon, Violet Berry, Golden Brandy, Glazed Berry. Some of them were so loved my mom had to use a brush to extract the color from the tube. Others just weren’t her color so they still had the crisp edges of a brand new stick.
Maybe it is my childhood experience, or maybe I’ve just had years to experiment, but Clinique’s lipsticks are my recent go-to. They are build-able, smooth, moisturizing, and come in so many colors. If you are looking for your “my lips but better” shade, this is the brand you should try. If you are looking for a punchy or trendy shade, I would look to Nars or Mac.
Cats also really enjoy lipstick. Jake the #Catofglam decided to bomb my photoshoot. But these pics were too cute to not share!
