Clinique Pop Liquid Matte Lip Colour + Primer in Black Licorice Pop & Ripe Pop

Your two orchids are always up to find great two-in-one products. And who can blame us? Today we bring you a sleek pop of liquid matte color which doubles as a primer. Clinique’s Pop Liquid Matte Lip Color + Primer has a moisturizing formula reinforced with a built-in primer that delivers a smooth glide.

When we tried the applicator wand for the first time, the formula seemed somewhat thick, but it turned out very creamy. So much that a little goes a long way. This lightweight liquid lipstick covers the lips with a rich pigmentation for a cool matte effect.

We love that it leaves a long-lasting stain that isn’t drying – a major plus when talking about matte lips. It’s is incredibly comfortable to wear, and very moisturizing for a matte which is surprising, to say the least.

With hundreds of lipsticks in our loot we didn’t possibly think there could be yet another formula created but the quality of this one will have us buying more for sure. The problem will be choosing colors: available in eight gorgeous shades from neutral to bright, Karen already has Petal Pop, Cake Pop, and Ripe Pop which is perfect for Spring and Summer.  Lauren recently added Black Licorice Pop which is perfect for evenings out-on-the-town. 

Although it is a matte lip color, it feels more like a semi-matte or suede matte finish, which is fine for us. You’ll be glad to know that a single coat does the trick for great color. Thanks to that full-coverage your lips will feel as fresh as they look.

Over the past couple years we’ve reviewed a spectrum of cosmetics from pricey department store makeup to budget conscious drugstore makeup, sharing our likes and dislikes. In the process we have definitely identified our must-haves, but we will admit our favorites do change from time to time. In the ever evolving world of cosmetics something new and improved is always being introduced. Here are the latest and greatest buzz worthy finds we’ve scooped up to review for you!

Our Signature

We can’t help but think warm sunsets on tropical beaches when it comes to the color coral.  This fiery orange with subtle undertones of pink has been lighting up 2015 spring and summer runways on everything from swimwear to bridal fashion. Paired with neutrals such as beige, brown, black or white, coral adds a pleasing zing of color that works well with a myriad of skin tones to instantly pep up your complexion. Try a neutral eye makeup with warm tones such as a champagne eye shadow when extending your coral look into your lipstick and polish for an instant sun-kissed glow.
