As you may have already known from my previous reviews; I love Clinique skin care however, this “liquid lipstick” wasn’t what I was expecting.
As always starting off with packaging; I think this is really cute – it’s short and rectangular shaped with a pretty mirrored cap and see-through frosted plastic. This has a chubby round applicator which isn’t the best for precise application and therefore using this product with a lip liner is a must.
The product itself, does not have a pleasant scent but it isn’t over-powering and you can not smell it after it’s on your lips. This product is crazy pigmented and with just one swipe I get an opaque layer that feels extremely light on my lips. However, I would not call this product a liquid lipstick just because it isn’t a traditional liquid lipstick that dries down and is transfer-proof. This product slides around and will definitely bleed if not used with a lip liner. It doesn’t ever dry down – just sets to a shiny suede finish which will transfer when eating/drinking. In fact when I press my lips on the back of my hand to test it’s transfer-ability a full opaque layer of my lip print comes off which is definitely not ideal when it comes to a long wearing lip color. This does stain the lips and some color will remain by the end of the day but it is somewhat patchy.

Would I reach for this again? Probably not because this formula isn’t exactly what I like to wear on a daily basis however, the color is gorgeous.
