Hello everyone. Ever since Rati informed us that Clinique has opened a store in my city, I had been itching to check it out. I did so finally and picked up a few items…could I possibly leave out a lipstick from Clinique….that too in such an awesome shade like this….nooooooo!!!

Clinique High Impact Lip Colour Rosette

From Clinique :

“High on colour, long on comfort. Dressed-up colour wears beautifully for 8 hours. And lips enjoy every minute. In highly moisturizing shades that continually smooth, soften, comfort. Protects from UVA/UVB, too.
• Coverage: Moderate to Full
• Benefits: SPF / Moisturizing”

These lipsticks come packed in a real neat cardboard pack with light green leaves on a light beigey background. The Clinique logo is printed in capitals with lovely silver letterings. The lipstick case itself really looks awesome and classy, being shiny silver in colour with even brighter silver rings in groups of twos going round the entire case 5 times. The top of the cap has a small round mirror on it. In fact, the lipstick case reminds me of a small torch light!

Now coming to the lipstick shade. It’s really as described by Clinique – a beautiful golden rose colour. It has a satin-frost finish, though the frost is nothing over the top, it just blends so beautifully with the lipstick, and it’s a kind of shade that I am so attracted to these days, as I find these are just perfect to go with any kind of eye makeup and any colour of outfit, as it’s a kind of universal colour in my opinion. I can wear it with a pink top, a purple kurti, a brown outfit, even with black, as it looks awesome with anything.

Pros of Clinique High Impact Lip Color (Rosette)

– Super sleek and impressive packaging and lipstick case – great to carry around in your handbag.
– All Clinique cosmetics are fragrance-free and allergy tested.
– Contains SPF 15.
– Glides on super soft and smooth on the lips; creamy and moisturising finish.
– Moderate to full coverage.
– Lasts about 4 or 5 hours without touch-ups.
– Great shade for either day or night use, now that summer is here.
– The frost finish is so well blended into the lipstick, that it never looks too shimmery or OTT.
– Gives a rather, nice semi-glossy finish, in spite of having almost full coverage.
– Am really drooling over this shade in particular, and I think I have found my HG lipstick shade which can go with any kind of makeup and outfit.

Cons of Clinique High Impact Lip Color (Rosette)

– I have nothing to really contribute as a con, except that it is not an 8 hour wear lipstick, maybe because of the fact that it is so smooth and creamy, so it ‘slips’ off after about 4 to maximum 5 hours, and definitely needs a touch-up after a meal.

I was debating whether to buy the Clinique Butter Shine lipstick in Pink-A-Boo or this one which I chose, and am glad I chose this one (the Butter Shine lippies were too ‘melty’ and sheer for me, though they did look interesting). Regarding re-purchase, this shade (Rosette) will definitely be on my list as a back up. The Clinique SA told me that this was their fastest-moving shade here, and I was lucky as they just had one piece left!

    I really liked the packaging….I tried these last time I had appointment but I did not tempt myself as I already had shelled out 10k that time for skin care 😛
    But I really want to try their lipsticks once :))

        Awwww what happen?? :((

    1. Thanks a ton, Ankita. Butter Shine lipsticks had all melted, but if you like sheer, glossy finish, then you will like them.

      1. Ohh! I like creamy , pigmented, opaque lipsticks like Chambor Silk touch and Revlon CB. Butter shine’s not for me then..the name does sound nice though 🙂

  7. The shade is so rich and classy Sabrine :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot:
    A new Shoppers Stop outlet is opening near me,just hope there’s a clinique conter there :fingersxd: :fingersxd: :fingersxd: :fingersxd: :fingersxd: :fingersxd:

      1. thank you ritika.. went to mum’s home.. it was my brother’s happy budday today.. had fun.. :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: how ahve you been? :))

        1. Trying to sleep but not feeling sleep only 😐 😐 😐 😐
          Oh by the way,me need your help,I have been using all the anti-acne stuff for over 6 months now,my acne has almost vanished but I still have small zits left,and I just noticed I have a HUGE dry patch on my face (I have dry skin). Should I start using more moisturising stuff or wait ? I dnt want acne to come again :weep: :weep: :weep: :weep: What to do ? :sweat: :sweat: :sweat: :sweat:

          1. use moisturizing stuff on dry patches atleast.. there is this new lotus sunscreen i have started using recently and it’s so crappy ritika, it gave me all dry patches and made my skin so dull and lifeless. :(( I toh have been using oil on my face directly and that is helping me. bt i wouldn’t recommend that to you coz I have dry skin so oils get absorbed in my skin. you use an oil free moisturiser atleast on your dry patches and drink loads of water.

            1. Which sunscreen ? I have been using Lotus 3 in 1 and it has been working fab for me till now. The crappiest one I used was Lakme :reallypissed:

              I’l definitely drink more water now and a dry skin moisturizer on the patches. So strange na I was using the same stuff in winters too and it never gave me any patches. Skin has a mind of its own 🙁

  8. Your mum’s house is in Saharnpur na ? I have been there once,for a wedding..the UP tone is so distinct whether you go to Kanpur or Luckhnow. Have you shopped in Kanpur? My mom gets like a dozen leather bags whenevr she goes there :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

    1. yeah. I have never been to Kanpur but I love kanpuri chappals. 😛 😛 Both sanjeev and I slept and slept like there’s no tomorrow. Feeling so fresh and light after coming back. :))

      1. Thats nice..have to get back to work tomrw and make make our lives easier :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue: :tongue:

    1. thanks you sabrina. Nice avatar you have put. 😀 😀 I loveed the lipstick shade . It is quite similar to the chambor silky pops . I’ll check out both.. :))

      1. Hi Rati, thank you. I also got the Chambor Silky Rose…it’s just like NYX Tea Rose, it’s lovely too. :))

  9. rattiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii … welcome welcome .. hheheheee.. how was your mini chutti :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

    1. mini chutti was awesome naina.. mom ka khaana is the beshtast in the world.. and slept and slept and sleptt.. :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

  10. :weep: :weep: :weep: i am also facing the same problem … skin was getting super oily , so i changed to fabindia teatree facewash n toner and now i have dry patches around nose and mouth .. :(( :(( i don understand this .. if i use products for normal/dry skin i get oily oily , if i use stuff for oily skin i have dry patches …. what to do ??? :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang:
    and i cant find any good thing for combination skin 😐 :struggle:

    1. naina keep your skin moisturized especially during the night and if you feel that the toner etc are to strong for you start using them once during the day. and at night may be you could use products that are meant for normal skin type. 🙂

  11. Sabrinaaaaaaaaaa its such a gawwwwwwwjussss shade…i request u to stop reviewing such awesum shades…coz it makes me wanna buy them… :wilt: :wilt: :wilt: :wilt: :wilt: :wilt: :wilt: :wilt: :wilt: :wilt: :wilt: :wilt: :wilt: 😉 :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

      1. Hi Farha, thank you so much. I saw Silk Pop in your photos, it looks awesome on you, and you topped it with some Lancome gloss, right? Really great.
