Today I am talking about this amazing lipstick from Clinique, well I have tried Mac sheen Supremes from the high end ones but this is new as this is first of the five I bought for IMBB. This is a pretty deeper pink more like a maroon one but nevertheless it is glossy and moisturising and buttery.
The lipstick comes in a glorious silver case which is rather heavy, it is more like a collector’s item : P I love it a lot, it click locks in place and has this powerful feel about it. The lipstick is purely glossy and creamy it is not at all shimmery or on the tack side. The color is a darker pink leaning towards maroon but it is a very sophisticated one, I would not say it is on the mature side but for sure it is not on the mature side.

Somehow the shade is though little maroon looks very sophisticated and it brightens the face, the best part about the lipstick is the plump looking feel, though it wont mention it plumps lips, the glossy finish makes lips appear fuller and moisturising.

The color glides like butter and one swipe gives you full color true to the tube and one swipe comes out even hydrats lips and also covers pigmentation but i have used two swips for the swatch or more. It is a great lippy for dry lips and thinner lips as well.

Now coming to the small glitch it might have, somehow it makes me feel it is bleeding it i wear more than one coat, but i am sure it does not bleed but looks like it might, second thing is i am not so sure why these are called long last as they do not have any trait of a long lasting lipstick it is not matte or does not settle rather stays saucy and hence makes it very prone to transfer, due to which it stays for 3 hours on average with meals, but honestly i would not call it long last they should call it moisturising lipstick 😛

Overall it is a very nice lippy for fuller lip look and for dry lips, pigmentation and txzturw is amazing and i do recommend you try this range to see if you like any color 🙂

Though it is creamy so far I have not damaged it and it is safe to carry it as well, you dont need to apply lot of pressure to apply it, it glides smoothly.
