Last week I went to the Clinique counter at Dillard’s so that I could get the Clinique Gift With Purchase. In order to get the gift I picked up the Clinique Pop Glaze Lipstick in Fireball Pop for my mom but I ended up stealing it back!
What’s to love?
I really like the square tube on the Color Pop line. The base is a colored transparent plastic and the top is silver with the Clinique logo.
The Clinique Pop Glaze Lipstick comes in 6 shades including Licorice Pop (dark violet), Bubble Gum Pop (medium pink), Sugar Plum Pop (medium violet), Melon Drop Pop (light red/coral) and Sprinkle Pop (dark pink). Second on my wish list is the Sugar Plum Pop.
My mom chose the Fireball Pop which is a darker coral/red but once she got it home the finish didn’t work on her lips. I think the reason was because this is a satin glaze finish which can look a bit transparent and it’s hard to get a good fill on older lips (my mom is 72), she does better with creams.
As you can see below I got fairly nice coverage (I’m 47). This lipstick is definitely transparent (glaze describes it well) but it is very pretty. It’s no where near the pigmentation you get with a cream. Pop Glaze does feel very moisturizing without being sticky and I loved the weightlessness. It does have a built-in primer.
Clinique says that this is an 8 hour wear lipstick but I only got about 4-5 hours. I rarely ever get 8 hours out of any lip product that’s not a matte. I had to reapply after lunch.
Overall I do like this lipstick and I would purchase it in another shade.
