I couldn’t resist the corny title 😛
But the Clinique Vitamin C Lip Smoothie is very nice indeed. You like lipglosses? You’re going to love the brush on light formula that leaves your lips looking glossy. Love lipsticks? You’ll like the moisturizing formula with nice pigmented colour.
On top of that all, it has anti-oxidant properties thanks to things like Vitamin C, Acai berry (ooh there’s that berry again! Remember its not Ah-Chai!) and Pomegranate. For moisturizing, it has shea butter and Theobrama Grandiflorum seed butter. Very nice in theory – but how does it fare in reality?
Well, it fares very well indeed! The colour I have is Berry Boost which is a shade I particularly like! Being a click-pen mechanism, it takes a while before the initial liquid comes out on the brush. I counted something like 25 turns but because you can actually feel it getting harder to turn, you know something is being pushed out and so its not that easy to over do. Once you get over the initial bit, it doesn’t take that much to get the colour out anymore. 2-3 turns just about does it. Colour swatch after the jump.
From the tube, Berry Boost is a deep berry shade that I really liked. On my lips however, it sheers out so for someone who likes their pigmented lip colours, it took some getting used to. There is still a hint of berry but what you really get is a glossy berry shade. Picture shows same colour taken under different lighting.
What I like is the lip plumping qualities. I don’t know if its meant to do any plumping, but it helps plump up my lips a little (it looks that way anyway!) and makes it look smoother which is quite impressive. It is not sticky, has no discernable smell, is not drying and is gorgeous for everyday use. In fact it feels rather like a coloured lip balm!
The Clinique Lip Smoothie comes in 6 shades and costs RM66 at all Clinique counters. Check out Goodness Grapecious over at Beetrice’s Reviews. Give this one a shot. I think you’ll like it too!
Pros: Not Sticky, No Fragrance, Not Drying, Smooth glossy texture
Cons: Colour is a little sheer, Takes a while before you can squeeze out the product
Have you tried this one yet? You know, its not too late to pick this up as a last minute Christmas gift 😉
I just got back from Bangkok last night and am understandably stoned to the eyeballs today. I think I left my brain somewhere over the Andaman sea. Or it could just be the Holiday mood creeping in 😀 Jingle jingle!
