Boots currently has a Clinique Bonus Time offer on (more on that at the end of the post) so I decided to pick up one of these Vitamin C Lip Smoothies (£13.50) in a completely uncharacteristic plum shade, Goodness Grapecious (har-har):
They Say: We’ve squeezed in the best ingredients, like Vitamin C, and powered-up antioxidants so lips look feel their healthy best. Your recommended daily dose of lusciousness. Brushes on luscious colour and shine in 10 juicy, moisture-rich blends.
Read on for the unveiling!
This brush on applicator is slim and easy to carry round. The texture is glossy and soft, a bit sticky which I like because it lasts that little bit longer.
I have very dry lips so this feels great on the lips – moisturizing and not highlighting any flaky patches I have on.
There are 10 shades to choose from, although the lady from Clinique told me four shades have not launched on UK counters just yet…and yes, they were all the shades that I wanted originally – Mangothon, Peach Power, Absolute Acai and Berry Boost.
“Ah you would like the shades we don’t have”…bummer.
I got Goodness Grapecious, a sheer plum because it was filled with lots of multi coloured micro sparkles – blues, silvers, pinks. Gorgeous!
There was also a Bonus Time Offer (one item to be skincare) which has this bag:
And six products – Clinique is pretty generous with freebies. You get the self sun tan, 7 day scrub, dramatically different lotion, mascara, lipgloss, a mini brush and dual shade bronzer.
Verdict: The colour range is a little limited at the moment, but once the other shades come in there will be lots of really nice shades to pick up. Its a nice shimmery gloss and worth it if you have dry lips like me.
