Let me tell you a little story… I made an appointment at Clinique two weeks ago have my makeup done. I did it all for the samples, I was lured in by the promise of two sample lip glosses and makeup remover. The overall experience was awful. I guess I have just been spoiled by every other counter that has ever applied makeup on me, but what I experienced was just odd.
Do you know how they applied makeup on me? With Q-tips, cotton balls and kleenex. I’m not sure why they couldn’t be bothered to use real brushes and maybe do something wild, like clean them between appointments, but the experience really dissapointed me. I expected to walk away ready for a night out but the execution was horrible. I tried to console myself with my lipstick, that was the only good part of that day. I’ll never forget how that woman took a kleenex and ran it over and over the eyeshadow to get enough product to apply it on me… with a Q-tip.
Until I saw this product, I was beginning to understand why Clinique was known for skincare and not color. This lipstick is fantastic though, I’m starting to wish I had more of them. Clinique’s Colour Surge Butter Shine Lipstick contains shea butter so it’s very moist and keeps your lips soft. It also delivers an amazing shine. When the “makeup artist” gave me the mirror, I was stunned to see how much shine this lipstick gave me… I didn’t even need gloss on my lips. Of course, actually adding a gloss on top of this lipstick will only make your lips look hotter. If you’re looking for a sheer lipstick with a great shine, this lipstick is definitely worth trying. I picked up “Adore U” that day and went back for “De-Lovely” earlier today… now I’m trying to decide what’s next.
