Clinique has been one of my go to cosmetic brands since I was in high school. When I first started working retail at a department store, (very long time ago) the cosmetic counter was the most coveted job of all. I had a friend who finally made here way to cosmetics and was working at the Clinique counter. I have to admit, secretly I was a little jealous of her white coat she wore. What girl doesn't love to play with make-up all day!
Clinique is one of those brands where you know you will get great skin care and classic make up to make us look beautiful. This winter Clinique released a new lip collection called Almost Lipstick. The Clinique website describes Almost Lipstick as ...
"Transparent pigment merges with the unique, natural tone of your lips to create something wonderful and yours alone. Sheer, glossy. Emollient-rich and very lightweight."
Clinique sent me three shades of the new Almost Lipstick to preview. Below are the pictures and how the colors looked on my lips. The colors looked similar, but have a feeling they will react and look a bit different on every ones lips. I liked the sheerness of the lipstick, which made it look like a gloss with out being too sticky or super shiny. The feel and consistency of a lipstick made the colors last longer and moisturized my lips. This type of lipstick is great for spring or summer weather. I don't like to wear heavy or highly pigmented color in warmer weather. Almost lipstick is great when you want some color on you lips but want the light feel of a gloss. I some times don't like lip gloss that is super shiny, which can make your lips look greasy. The Almost Lipstick from Clinique seems to be the perfect balance between a lip stick and lip gloss.
Almost Lipstick by Clinique comes in 8 different shades and cost $15 each, now available in stores on online at the website. What do you think of the colors? Is Almost Lipstick something you would try?
*This is my honest and personal opinion of the product, for best results you should always try it out yourself. I was not paid for this post, but was given preview samples to review, courtesy of Clinique.
