Review: Clinique Different Lipstick and Long Last Glosswear

First of all, Happy New Year! So how was your celebration? I hope everyone’s fine and everybody’s fingers are still complete huh? ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyway, I’ll start my year by sharing with you my thoughts about this recent favorite of mine, the Clinique Dual Lipstick. ๐Ÿ™‚

Fire up the year!

Fire up the year!

Clinique is one of my dream cosmetic and skin care brands. I’ve heard a lot of good reviews about their products specially the skin care line. But in my current financial state, I’d rather buy cheaper brands for the meantime for review purposes. ๐Ÿ™‚

I bought Clinique different lipstick and long last glosswear from Ms. Genzel’s blog sale, a blog which I religiously follow. You can check out her blog here. I seriously love reading her blog as I love how she writes her reviews and I love her pictures! I can’t find this specific product in Clinique stores now, maybe because it’s a limited edition or something, so I don’t have the price for this.

Anyway, here’s the picture of the lipstick part:


Clinique different lipstick in shade 76 Shy

The lipstick is kinda small which is okay for me as I take a lot of time to finish a regular sized lipstick. The color is not pigmented though and not so buildable. It’s not an issue for me as I like how it looked on my lips. The color looked so natural. I also like that it didn’t feel heavy and didn’t dry up my lips. It’s odorless too.


Long last glosswear SPF 15 in shade 18 Mystic

As for the gloss part, it has a slight weird smell but I can tolerate it. It looks sticky and it actually is when applied on the lips. I feel awkward wearing it because of its stickiness. It’s super glossy so I suggest you put a little amount and spread it on your lips. A little amount would be enough for a glossy lips. Good thing about it is that it has SPF. In case you didn’t know, our lips also need SPF to protect it from being sun-burnt.

So here are the swatches:

As for the staying power, it didn’t even last for an hour. :/ I don’t mind reapplying it but for others who search for a long lasting lipstick, this product would definitelyย fail.

If I were to rate this product, I would give it a 3 out of 5. I really love its shade but I’m half-hearted with everything else. I hope they improve the formulation of the gloss and the staying power of the product.

How about you? Have you tried any Clinique lipsticks? ๐Ÿ™‚
