Review: Clinique Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick in Matte Beauty


When I think of Clinique, I typically think of their amazing skincare rather than their make-up line. So when my aunt regifted me this lipstick, I was eager to try it out!
 

The packaging is quite pretty. It has random geometric shapes and stripes in different shades of orange, white, and pink. The lipstick itself is a dusky pink shade called “Matte Beauty”. It’s almost a Barbie pink that looks just a bit pinker than my actual lips. It would look flattering on just about everyone, but it seems more a spring and summer color than a winter and autumn one. I think it’ll look especially nice with a tan, pink blush, and shimmery eyeshadow!

“Matte Beauty” is, as the name suggests, a matte shade. Matte lipsticks tend to be drying to before I apply it I always use a lip balm. This lipstick covers very well and it almost looks like your natural lip shade. It’s also very long lasting. After I swatched it on my hand for the photos, I took a shower and scrubbed it with a loofah and I can still see where it was before.
 

It feels very nice on the lips. The formula is creamy, for a matte lipstick, and does give the “velvet finish” that the website says it gives. It also doesn’t feel very heavy; I almost forget I’m wearing anything at all! The only problem I have with this lipstick so far is that if you don’t moisturize your lips before putting it on, it can settle into the lip lines.

Overall, I think this is a very wearable lipstick and shade, and I think I’ll be reaching for it very often when spring comes around!
