Clinique Pop Matte Lipstick 06 Rose Pop Review Swatches

10 Reasons Why I Think the Clinique Pop Matte Lip Color + Primer Is THE Lipstick of the Year

#LipstickWeek, Part 2 of 3: Clinique Pop Matte Lip Color + Primer in 06 Rose Pop ($18.50)

Today, I won’t babble.

The Clinique Pop Matte Lip Color + Primer in 06 Rose Pop deserves our full attention.

Why, you ask?

Well, I don’t really have a reason…

I have 10!

Check this:

  1. The packaging is super cute. I love that it has a mirrored top and rubberized bottom (think NARS) that reflects the actual color of the lipstick.
  2. Like all Clinique products, the Pop Matte Lip Color + Primer is fragrance-free. I really dislike most floral scents, so fragrance-free is always good in my book.
  3. It glides beautifully on the lips and is a real pleasure to apply. It feels like a major treat!
  4. It has mind-blowing pigmentation. Seriously. One swipe is all you need.
  5. I normally use a liner with all my lipsticks, but for testing purposes I tried Rose Pop on its own and I have to say that it was pretty easy to get sharp edges, which is pretty rare (at least in my experience).
  6. I guess this is down to personal preference, but to me fuchsia-berry Rose Pop is an amazing shade. It’s a darker version of my all-time favorite lipstick – the YSL Rouge Pur Couture The Mats in 208 Fuchsia Fetiche. Yeah… I’d say Rose Pop is like its fall/winter counterpart.
  7. It has a fantastic semi-matte finish that looks super flattering on the lips.
  8. It has BOMB lasting power, because even when it wears off (after many hours and plenty of drinking and eating)…
  9. It leaves behind a pretty intense stain.
  10. It’s reasonably priced. At $18.50, the Clinique Pop Matte Lip Color + Primer rivals much more expensive options.

Out of all the amazing lipstick formulas I’ve tried this year, I really think the Clinique Pop Matte Lip Color + Primer is my favorite.

    Omg Carol that is a beautiful shade on you! Definitely a shade I would love. I definitely have to try these out…I have a soft spot for Clinique since my mom used to work for them in the Philippines, and she has remained loyal to them over the decades!

    I know MANY have raved about this range but I have never tried anything, actually I have not bought anything from Clinique since forever! That shade is gorgeous, so stunning on you, really brightens up your face.

    It sounds impressive and it looks beautiful on you! I don’t have a lot of Clinique makeup. I usually go to the counter for their skin care stuff. I’ll have to check these out next time I’m there!

    Woah, this shade really pops, love it. I’m a HUGE fan of the original formula but I haven’t tried the matte version yet.

    I keep telling myself I don’t really need more lipsticks, but I have the feeling your lipstick week is going to make me weak sooner or later…

    I’ve tried the pop balms but not the lipsticks ! I really like the packaging too, super pretty (especially when you have a lot and line them all up!!!) I love how they have a lot of colour in them AND yes – it’s not expensive!!!!!!!!!!!

    I find this really unique that it’s a primer and lipstick all in one! I love nourishing lip products, as I get a lot of dryness in the colder months! This sounds great that you don’t even need a lip liner with this either. I definitely want one of these now, as I love matte lips. But I always seem to find most matte formulas so drying on me. So this sounds like it have the best of both worlds though – matte, but hydrating.. The absolute perfect combination for a lipstick in my opinion! – Zoeva Rose Golden Vol. 2 Complete Eye Brush Set – Metallic Blue Smoky Eye Tutorial
