We were out for brunch, a typical start to our Sunday, when I decided to pop into Sephora! I have heard wonderful things about Clinique’s new line of matte lipstick with a built-in primer. I will admit that I keep things pretty typical and natural with my makeup and I don’t tend to shy away from the norm. I saw this color, Blushing Pop, and knew that it was just soft enough to add to my everyday makeup routine.
I am super impressed with how well it stays on and how moisturizing it feels on my lips throughout the day. It is a muted pink tone, which actually shows up as a light pink/nude color on me. There are so many different shades to choose from, and I am slightly terrified for my wallet that this lipstick might turn me into a lipstick lover. It went on super smooth, and even though my lips were a bit chapped and dry, it quickly moisturized them and made them look soft.
I have always been hesitant to step out of my neutral comfort zone with makeup, but after seeing how the matte look can dull down the brightness of a lipstick color, I am hooked! I am so happy I bought this new color just in time to wear it throughout the month of love – and for under $20! If you are in search of new lipstick line, I highly suggest checking out some of the colors below from Clinique’s Pop Matte line – I don’t think you’ll be disappointed in the quality or the price!
