In my quest to find some great choices for fall lips, Clinique’s lipsticks in A Different Grape, Black Violet, and Double Truffle appealed to me. (I really love the Double Truffle name; it makes me giggle!) The lipstick formula itself is creamy, softly shimmery (reminds me of a lustre). The shimmer looks more like a nice glossy sheen once applied to the lips.

Cinique’s Modern Matte is a collection focusing on matte eyes and high impact color on the lips. I am loving the new High Impact Lip Colour lipsticks – they are gorgeous, and there are so many shades to choose from. I know only a few are featured/highlighted in the actual Modern Matte collection, but there is basically a separate launch filled with these babies! I’m hoping to get to do some lip swatches later on this week, but here are some photos to hold you over. :)

(Pictured above are… Midnight & Night Plum Matte Shadows; Very Blush Blushwear; Red-y To Wear, Pure Posh, Go Fig, Plum Nude, Rose Spectrum, Sunset Glow High Impact Lip Colour)

Available in: French Vanilla, Sable, Chocolate Chip, Martini, Stone Violet, Dark Denim, Slate, Night Plum, Midnight

This formula is the newest addition to the ever-popular Colour Surge Eye Shadow family. With this latest edition Clinique now offers a contemporary soft matte finish with intense, buildable, easy to blend hues. Colour Surge Eye Shadow Stay Matte is perfect for women of all ages. This formula leaves behind a soft smooth appearance.

High Impact Mascara (Black) ($14.00)

This mascara provides instant gratification by delivering intense, glamorous, dressed-up lashes in a flash! Women crave long, thick lashes and that’s exactly what Clinique’s multi-benefit mascara delivers – dramatic volume and length, fast! High Impact contains a built-in base of polymers that preps lashes automatically. The wide eyed, dramatic look is easily achieved without having to build layer after layer of mascara. This formula binds onto each and every lash, thickening on the spot and lengthening lashes by 36 percent.

High Impact Lip Colour SPF 15 ($14.00)

Available in: Go Fig, Rosette, Plum Nude

This sophisticated lipstick delivers superior colour and moisturization benefits from the moment it’s applied. The multi-tasking formula is long wearing, feather-resistant and has stay-true colour all while helping to provide protection from the sun’s harmful rays. Packed with the amazing treatment benefits that we’re known for, this product provides intense levels of moisturization while helping to protect fragile lip skin from UVA and UVB rays. Dry lips are comforted and lip condition is improved immediately upon application.

Defining Liner for Lips ($14.00)

Available in: Cider, Pomegranate, Sugared Fig

This liner is a wood clenched lip liner pencil with a built-in sharpener. It offers a smooth creamy application due to high level of cushiony feeling oils. The long-wearing formula (up to 8 hours) extends lipstick wear, helping to prevent feathering outside of the lip line or into fine lines. The precision sharpenable point can deliver a thick or more defined line depending on preferred use for customized application. The built-in sharpener provides ease and convenience for on-the-go touch ups and application; no need to tote another piece in your makeup bag!

Blushwear Cream Stick ($18.50)

Available in: Rosy Blush, Shy Blush, Very Blush (Limited Edition)

Creating a natural, healthy looking flush no longer requires a brisk jog around the block.

Designed for women of all ages and skin types who desire longer-wearing cheek colour that’s a cinch to apply.
