Today, decorative cosmetics is presented in a wide range. Particular attention is paid to the manufacture of lipsticks, through the use of which it is possible not only to make lips more expressive, but also to significantly revitalize the image. Clinique lipstick is one of the cosmetic products that has been popular for decades.
Clinique is a brand that puts the quality of its products first. If we compare Clinique products with decorative cosmetics of other brands, the products of the Belgian company are considered to be of higher quality. A key feature is that in one tube the manufacturer combined the lipstick and primer. Bright and saturated color, a rich palette of colors, the implementation of the 2-in-1 function, soft care, excellent protection from the negative effects of the environment - this is how modern Clinique lipsticks can be characterized.

Reading the composition of lipsticks, it becomes clear that the Belgian company is trying to provide a high level of lip care. The use of vitamin and mineral complexes contribute to the restoration and improvement of the skin on the lips. The use of various oils (in particular jojoba, avocado, mango, shea, murumur and others) helps to improve the water balance, eliminate roughness, even out the natural tone. Antioxidant-rich lipsticks reliably protect delicate skin from negative external influences. The increased concentration of the pigment gives the lips expressiveness and brightness for about 5-6 hours.
Some cosmetics are supplemented with protection against ultraviolet rays, which is necessary in the summer.
Do not use cosmetics after its expiration date, since such products are unsafe for humans. Accordingly, you need to be able to correctly determine the date of manufacture of the product and the period of its safe use. So, to set the shelf life of lipstick, you must:
- On cardboard packaging or on the lipstick case itself you need to find a code consisting of three characters - one letter and two digits or two letters and one digit. The last figure corresponds to the year of manufacture of the product. So, for example, if the number is 6, then this tool was released in 2016.
- Remember that almost any decorative cosmetics is stored 36 months, unless otherwise stated by the manufacturer.
- If the packaging is opened and a cosmetic product was used, then the shelf life of the product will be different. Again, we return to the packaging or case, look for an icon on it with a graphic image of the trash can or tank. Nearby there is usually a marking of 6m, 12m or 24m. This product after opening can be stored for 6, 12 or 24 months, respectively.
A variety of decorative cosmetics is a guarantee of brand success among women of different age groups. It is likely that this is the rule that Clinique is guided by, because today manufacturing plants produce matte and glossy, persistent, liquid, and varnish lipsticks. Lipsticks-balms and lipsticks-pencils, lip gloss are especially in high demand. The former provide care and protection, and the latter are interesting to customers due to their brevity and ease of use.
The Belgian company has been popular for decades. During its existence, the company managed to significantly expand the range of manufactured products, increase the number of shades used and put into production several lines of lip products:
- "Long Last Lipstick";
- "Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick";
- "High Impact Lip Color";

Lipsticks of the Belgian brand delight contemporaries with a rich palette of colors. There are almost colorless options, and quite bright colors. The variety of assortment is designed for the fact that the tastes of all women are different. Today, nude lipsticks are considered a fashion trend, on which the company has made a special emphasis. They are suitable for everyday use, as well as for evening or special events.
The constant leader in sales is red lipstick, which always looks spectacular on the lips.
Properly selected and superimposed makeup will help create the perfect female look.
Among the popular novelties of the last several seasons, there is an increased interest of customers in the following tones: "Runway Coral", "Passion Pop", "Nude Pop", "Poppy Pop Blushing Nude".
How to choose your tone
The ideal make up is not only the use of high-quality cosmetics, but also the ability to put into practice knowledge in the field of makeup.
The key criterion for choosing cosmetic products is matching the color type of appearance. First of all, you need to determine the type that you belong to (make-up artists and cosmetologists can help with this in beauty salons or by conducting a test with a stylist). Then you should familiarize yourself with the palette of shades, which is typical for one or another type of appearance.
Lipsticks manufactured by the Belgian company Clinique are not budget products, but at the same time they are of excellent quality and combine several positive characteristics at once. Some of them not only emphasize female attractiveness, but also moisturize and nourish the skin on the lips. And the "Pop Lip Color" series, which many people love, also serves as a primer. This line is one of the most expensive among other products manufactured by the Clinique brand.
How to distinguish an original from a fake
Any cosmetic product that is in demand among consumers becomes the object of scammers. To protect yourself from the purchase of non-original goods, you should remember a few rules:
- Pay attention to the name and logo, indicated both on the packaging and on the product itself. There are so perfect fakes that are sometimes difficult to distinguish from the original. And they come across the simplest - spelling the brand name. Read carefully how the brand name is spelled. Fraudsters try to completely repeat the brand name by changing, adding or removing only one letter.
- Examine the packaging and case of lipstick. A company that monitors the quality of its products is trying to cover other aspects of production, including design.
- Characteristic insignia. Logo, manufacturer's data, manufacturing date and batch number, expiration date.
- Price range. High-quality and best-selling cosmetics can not be cheap. Therefore, do not fall for the tricks of scammers who offer goods at a low price in connection with various promotions and sweepstakes. Well-known brands notify their customers in advance of such events.
Another feature of Clinique lipsticks is a lot of positive reviews from those girls and women who have already managed to try this product on themselves. High quality and color saturation are noted. Shade resistance lasts for 4-5 hours. After a snack, the lipstick on the lips needs to be updated. However, it does not "eat up" completely, but only loses its brightness and color saturation. The tone in the middle of the lips becomes less pronounced, but the contour remains as clear as during the initial application. Also, contemporaries note the stylish design of the case, the lower part of which is made in one tone with the color of the lipstick itself. This is especially convenient if there are several products of this brand in a cosmetic bag. Many positive reviews are associated with the nourishing and moisturizing functions of decorative cosmetics.
Some girls indicate the high cost of goods. However, many forget that in one product they get not only lipstick, but also a primer.
Clinique lipstick is deservedly considered one of the best presented on the modern world market of decorative cosmetics.
