Clinique Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick gains a spot on my favorite lip. GASP right!? A matte lipstick that I’m actually loving? Unheard of!
I’m a shimmery lipstick girl myself and I tend to avoid mattes especially when I’m taking into consideration my drier lips but the new and affordable ($15 each score!) Clinique Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick is a comfortable, pigmented, easy to wear matte lipstick that will convert you to the joys of matte!
Clinique Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick launches recently in eight vibrant shades! Each lipstick comes housed in raised ridge silver barrel and will set you back $15 per shade.

Clinique Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick Swatches (Matte Mandarin, Matte Beauty, Matte Crimson)
At a glance these are deceiving as they look glossy in the tube but once applied the color tones down to a true, matte finish with a super creamy texture. Honestly, I avoid mattes because they tug during application, migrate, feather, and end up accentuating my flaky, drier lips. Not the case with this luxurious formula. These have a smooth, creamy texture that glides onto lips in an easy, buttery swipe with opaque, long wearing (we’re talking five hours of wear here) coverage that never dries lips out. Granted, they aren’t hydrating but they aren’t dry either or uncomfortable through their long wear and color remains where I PUT it so no road trips around my lip line. The colors are beautifully vibrant with excellent color pay off as well.

Needless to say I’m going to call Clinique Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick my new favorite matte finish lipstick formula and I’m going to Muse Approve them for both matte and non-matte lovers alike. These take luxurious matte lipstick and bring it to us at a very affordable price tag. Vibrant, pigment, a non-drying, long wearing formula? CHECK, check, check!
Great job Clinique.
