Last week I wore one of these lovely Clinique lipstick and lip gloss duos for the first time in a raspberry shade and really liked it.
One thing I noticed about it at the time however, was that both the lipstick and the lip gloss elements were lovely colours individually and so today, I decided to split the duo up and try one element on its own.
It’s one of those lip products that’s hard to photograph because though it is shimmery, it’s not glittery, and tends to look different in different light. Today was a gorgeous sunny day in Dublin and at times, it really looked like I had a metallic lip which I absolutely loved!
It is a little sticky to wear which can be annoying, and after trying this separately, I do think I prefer the impact you get from pairing the gloss and lipsticks together, especially as the lipstick reduces the gloss ever so slightly giving it more of a semi-gloss finish.
