5 days to go as we reach Day 25 on my #30daysofred in November and today’s red lipstick is a freebie alert which I believe you can still get if you look around hard enough.
When it comes to make up, nothing is ever better than free! I do love a freebie, whether its a gift with purchase (Got to love that at Christmas time!) or a freebie on a magazine (Which is what today’s is). This lippy was free with Glamour Magazine this month, the one with the lovely Tanya Burr on it. Let me introduce you to the lovely Clinique Pop Lip Colour and Primer in Cherry Pop.
The Pop Lip Colour and Primer lipsticks from Clinique are actually pretty interesting and unique. I love a lipstick that is different and while trying this bad boy out I did find it was better than I thought it would be. Granted you would expect good pigmentation and hydration, what I wasn’t expecting was no ‘bleed’ at all while wearing this and how well it lasted on my lips. Yes this lipstick does transfer, but it lasts well and didn’t stain my lips either – so another plus point there. It claims it will keep your lips moisturised for 8 hours and I will say my lips felt pretty good while wearing this and after too. So the formula is definitely a winner with me!
As for the colour, Cherry Pop is beautiful! I would liken this to the Hollywood Glamour reds, its vibrant, rich and vixen like. Think classic films, film noir… I’m sure you get the picture. Its neither a blue toned red or orange red in my opinion, dare I say this one sits on the neutral scale? Either way, I would recommend giving this one a try even if its just to test out the formula as its really impressive and if you do manage to get it with the magazine, you get a good read with it too!
