Clinique Spanish Rose Long Lasting Soft Shine Lipstick Review and Swatch
Hello Beauties, Tree leaves have started to dry up, there is already slight coldness in breeze and my mood getting more and more colorful. You can imagine that I love fall season and it coincides with start of festive season in India.
All the colorful cloths are coming out from wardrobe and my routine is also changing. I will be at home from next week for the reason that I left my job. Now I will enjoy a much wanted and waited break. During this time I will definitely try out some new things, play with my makeup more and more and do try to shop less (less money to spend now). So with the new season and new routine, I am here with some new reviews. I posted Sleek Au Naturel Palette Look last week and combined that eye look with Clinique Spanish rose lipstick. So it’s time to review that.
Clinique says- Longest-wearing, soft shine formula. Keeps its just-applied look for hours. Won’t feather, creep, stain or dry out.
My Thoughts- Clinique long last lipsticks housed in sliver metal tube. The cap has beautiful round carving. Packaging looks nice and elegant. For a surprise no Clinique logo is carved on it unlike other brands. On the bottom you can find name of the shade. I only have one lipstick from Clinique so it’s easy for me find it in my collection due to its unique packaging.
My mother loves Clinique products and I always thought that they make it mostly for middle aged group. But I was so wrong as they do have some bright beautiful shades. Spanish Rose is one of those bold shades. I can describe it as a Berry fuchsia shade. This shade gives life to my dull face. I don’t need to wear full makeup to brighten up my face this lipstick is enough to do that. Due to Berry undertone this shade is suitable for warm skin tone also, and cool skin tone girls can rock this shade .
Clinique says it gives moderate coverage and on my lips it gives nice opaque coverage, which last for good 6-7 hrs. It does survive the meal, lost a bit of shine but vibrancy of color remains same after that also.
Texture of the lipstick is very smooth and creamy. Goes so smooth on the lips, doesn’t dry out during the day and maintain the shine for 5-6 hrs. This is one of the lipsticks which I can wear on my bad lips day as it doesn’t emphasis my dried lip line and gives good hydration for long hours.
It cost € 20, I will say it’s not that expensive in terms of quality you are getting and compare to other high end brands. MAC prolong wear lipstick cost € 17.50, but I will say the texture of Clinique is better than MAC prolong wear and I can spend €2.50 extra for that.
Here how it looks on me-
Packaging is elegant
Available in nice shade rage- 30 different shades
Staying power is 6-7hrs
No shimmer and texture is smooth and creamy
Suitable for all skin tone
For you if- You like cream finish long wear lipsticks and like to spend money
Ski pit if- You like shimmer and € 20 gives you hiccups
Would I buy it again?- Yes I would love to try other shades of this range.
Thanks for dropping by. Nidhi
