Over the past week I’ve been sharing a bunch of exciting new Clinique Spring 2016 launches including the Clinique Pop Lacquer Lip Colour + Primer, Clinique Pop Glaze Sheer Lip Colour + Primer, and Clinique Lid Pop Eyeshadows. Today I’m back with one more new product in the “Pop” line, the Clinique Pop Oil Lip & Cheek Glow in Poppy Glow* and Rose Glow*.
The Clinique Pop Oil Lip & Cheek Glow come in packaging so similar to the Clinique Pop Lacquers I honestly got confused by the numbering system until I realized they were two different products. However, the product itself is very different. They have a doefoot applicator and an oily, gel texture that can be applied to either the lips or cheeks. There are 4 shades available and I have Poppy Glow (01) and Rosy Glow (03).
The Clinique Pop Oil Lip & Cheek Glow in Poppy Glow is a sheer juicy red with an orange undertone. Both shades to sink into lip lines slightly but they provide such a glossy finish it’s really not noticeable from afar.
On the cheeks, the Clinique Pop Oil Lip & Cheek Glow in Poppy Glow gives an almost “in from the cold” glow, but I do prefer the product on the lips. The dewy stain on the cheeks looks nice but it’s so oily it kinda moves the foundation underneath it around and isn’t the easiest to apply.
The Clinique Pop Oil Lip & Cheek Glow in Rose Glow is a sheer raspberry. It’s the kind of lip product that doesn’t just not make my lips feel worse, it actually feels nourishing to wear. Both shades also provide a lovely tint of colour that helps gloss over dry patches.
The Clinique Pop Oil Lip & Cheek Glow in Rose Glow gives a lovely rosy glow to the cheeks–as promised–and it’s actually my favourite of the two shades. This product isn’t super long wearing on either the cheeks or lips, but it’s obviously much easier to re-apply on the lips.
I’m always going to prefer a lip-cheek product as one or the other and in the case of Clinique Pop Oil Lip & Cheek Glow I do prefer it on my lips. However it’s super comfortable to wear with a flattering sheer wash of colour so even if I just use them that way I’m a huge fan of the product!
What do you think of the new Clinique Pop Oil Lip & Cheek Glow in Poppy Glow and Rose Glow?
