Clinique Long Last Soft Matte Lipsticks

Clinique’s new lipsticks have been spoken about everywhere but I guess that’s what happens when a popular brand releases a great product. The new Long Last Soft Matte Lipsticks are their new edition but since I’m not a huge Matte lipstick girl I wasn’t terribly excited, which made the fact that they’re great even more exciting!

The reason I don’t love matte lipsticks is that they always dry my lips out and since I already have naturally quite dry skin/lips I tend to stay away. I usually opt for a more semi-matte lipstick but this one is actually matte put still very comfortable, easy to apply, last really long and most importantly don’t dry out my lips.

(excuse the facial expressions all the rest were out of focus)

The shade range is also great although I only own three; Matte Petal, Matte Magenta and Matte Beauty. They are all beautiful shades, Petal and Beauty are my type of everyday/smokey eye lipstick colours and Magenta as you can imagine is a little brighter.

Overall three great lipstick and definitely one to try/add to the wishlist. I’ve got my eyes on Matte Mandarin which is a stunning orange red!

Have you tried these? What are your favourite matte lipsticks?

    I swatched a couple of these in store the other day and can’t believe I didn’t buy one! They are so lovely! Just I can’t justify buying another lip product right now!

    Absolutely love matte colours but I agree with you I'm often put off because they can be really drying. These shades are soo pretty though, loving a pink lip right now x

    I really like the magenta! I'm the same, my lips are quite dry so I usually avoid matte lipsticks but I'll have to keep my eyes on these!

    The middle ones my favourite. I'm still yet to try Clinique makeup as I found their skincare so strong for my skin, I always stayed away from them. But after this post I'm going to have to add the lipstick to my never ending wish list haha. KBxx
