This is another beauty from my Clinique collection which has been sponsored by IMBB I am particularly happy with this shade, because I have been a fan of cream mattes and orange rust based shades. This is just that plus it is not cakey at all, it feels super light, no drying and also moisturizing and it has this velvety texture which is not buttery but feels sturdy when you apply it, so this color has to find a permanent place in your vanity.
The color is named pink chocolate but I could see more of orange and rust in it, very little pink may be in bright light, but yes it has brown to it,so it is rightly named. Needless to say I love the heavy metallic click lock back and the motifs print case box they come in, I have a huge collection now of Clinique lipsticks thankfully they have names as well as numbers or else it would have been tough for me 😛 anyway so this packaging is truly a collector’s item some classic feel to it is apparent
The color is soft rusty brown, which I love , the color is shimmer free in fact it has this semi matte finish you cannot call it powder matte but still it looks like a very nourishing matte, the finish is semi matte well almost matte but the texture hardly feels like a drying matte which is amazing don’t you think. If you love mattes and have dry lips then this is just right for you, it feels smooth and nourishing and not at all drying.No doubt it has some pink undertones but on me it comes out more of an orange warm color.
The lipstick feels sturdy and and when you apply it, it feels very smooth but not cakey as in it won’t form thi s layer but you can build it up. the color is great for most skin tones, for day and office wear and it wont bleed at all, it transfers minimally.
IMBB rating; you might find it little similar to Clinique paprika.but this is not glossy.
