~ Appearance ~
My Clinique Colour Surge lipstick comes in a very light green coloured stick with a silver band around the middle separating the stick from the lid. The lid has the Clinique 'C' embossed onto the top of the lid.
The bottom of the lipstick has a round sticker on with the name of the lipstick, the name and number of the shade and the Clinique address. It also tells you that this product was made in USA.
The lipstick itself twists up easily to reveal just over 1 inch of lipstick. It looks like you get a little bit more than in your average lipstick which is a little bit smaller and I'd say this lipstick is just as wide as any other. The lipstick has an angled edge for ease of application.
I think the packaging has now been changed to a silver coloured stick as this light green colour is not very appealing.
~ Use ~
My lipstick is called Bronze Star and it is a dark shimmery bronze colour.
The lipstick goes on very smoothly and feels moisturising while it is being applied. It gives my lips a darker colour and also has a shimmery effect. It is really easy to apply and glides over my lips.
The first thing I noticed after applying this lipstick was how much it feels like you're not wearing any lipstick at all. It doesn't feel any different. For me, this is a really big thing as I find it really irritating when you apply lipstick or lip gloss and you are constantly aware of the product on your lips.
Even by looking at the lipstick in it's packaging you can tell it is good quality. It is a shiny stick and it looks as though it is going to feel really moisturising, but it doesn't feel moisturising once applied, it doesn't feel present, yet you have the look that you set out to achieve.
I really like this lipstick and have never experienced results as good with any other lipstick.
It appears very reflective on my lips and it has a shimmer to it, but you can't feel any tiny shimmery particles on your lips like you can with some lipsticks.
I have found this lipstick to be long lasting and it can still be evident around 5 hours after application. Like all lipsticks I have used, it does need to be topped up or reapplied if you are eating or drinking.
The lipstick doesn't smudge or bleed onto my skin, while I am wearing it. It is everything I want in a lipstick.
I would definitely buy this lipstick again. It is easy to apply, looks great, feels natural and is long lasting. There's not much more I could ask for!
