  1. I love these! I have one but I want them all <3

    Whoa…the first row looks so similar

  3. They’re kinda sheer, I don’t see a whole lot of difference between the colours

  4. Lissa

    Do these have shimmer? I think it’s hard to tell.

  5. tehteh

    is it just me or they all look way too similar?

  6. Lourdy

    Really like it, very convenient when you are on the go, plus feel good on your lips.

    Hi
    Could you give your opinion about this when compare with NARS Gloss pencil?

    Have you tried Nars yet?

    Thank you

    • This is just a sneak preview – I have not finished testing them. I have not tested NARS’ Pencils, but they seem like different products (if you read their descriptions).

  8. Patricia

    All of them are pretty.

    I bought 2 of these when they first came out. I love the way they look and feel on… but one of them is broken already. I opened it one day and the lipbalm was stuck inside the lid. I got it out and pushed it back in the tube but its still not right. I love the color and what it does to my lips though.

  10. Jen

    Chunky Cherry was the one I wanted to try out. I like the color a lot–so subtle.

  11. melina

    Woppin’ Watermelon!!! LOVE IT!! :)

    I have both Whole Lotta Honey and Super Strawberry. Love them both, they have a nice sheen and last about 3 hrs on me leaving behind a slight stain. I’m thinking of getting Mega Melon, just so I have a neutral, pink and peach.

    I just swatched these at Sephore on Friday. I was really looking forward to some awesomeness, but I was greatly disappointed. Other than Chunky Cherry and Graped-up, all the others are so close in color, I couldn’t discern a big difference. The application and saturation is very similar to Tarte’s line. But, the real killer for me was the smell. I can look past that they do not smell as their namesakes. But, oh my! the odor! Much like really bad off brand crayons. I’ll pass on these!

  14. Fair warning, these don’t smell that great. They’re pretty good for their intended purpose (moisturizing + adding a dash of color), but they smell has sort of put me off of them. I definitely prefer the MAC lip conditioner, which is also less expensive and gives more product for your money.

      Just so everyone’s aware, Clinique’s point of difference as a predominantly skincare house is that they are Allergy Tested and 100% Fragrance Free so they will most certainly have no specific scent or flavour beyond the ingredients that make up the product :) I have Whoppin’ Watermelon and I love it to bits! Can’t wait to get more shades :D

  15. Crystal

    Nice swatches! The colors look sheer and soft, perfect for Spring!

  16. I’m excited for this review! I was thinking of grabbing a few of these for when the gift with purchase comes around.

  17. These look kinda cool. I like the whole crayon-like thing going on. They don’t look ultra-pigmented, but I’m pale, so that’s OK!
    How do these compare to the NARS Velvet Gloss pencils? Any thoughts?

    • This is just a sneak preview – I have not finished testing them. I have also not tested NARS’ Velvet Gloss Pencils, which from the description alone, are a very different product :)

  18. Jennifer

    I have “Super Strawberry” and I love it.
    I want to get Chunky Cherry and Whoppin Melon at some point.

  19. hmm these all look so very similar, especially the first four..

  20. They look really cute! But do you need to sharpen them?

  21. I bought Ulta Lip Crayon. Got it for 20% off of $8.00. Very moisturizing. And has color. Made in Germany. Similar to this Clinique product. size 2.8 gram (.10 oz.) Used Clinque exclusively when I was in high school eons ago. Just not going to pay for brand name when I can get a similar product for a lower price.

  22. Maggie

    i prefer the tart lipsurgences!! the color range is much more different than each other than these..at first i was excited but now im like nahhhh… :P

  23. Gretchen

    These are so freaking cute! I might buy one or two if you give them a good review.

  24. CeeBee

    Yes, that first line of Raisin, Fig, Honey and Melon (why do they always name makeup after food, it makes me hungry!) all look super similar. I guess the natural tone of your lips will probably change how they look on though.

    I REALLY like the packaging of these, it’s really nifty! They’re super cute, but I imagine if the stick comes out of the base, it’s all over, Rover…

    I’m gonna pass on these…

  25. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Ashley Ashley Sarah

    I like these. The shades are similar but I can definitely see a difference in them.

  26. chibaraki

    Ooo, I’m really excited to see the review of these, they look similar to the Stila tinted lip balm I loved but was discontinued years ago.

  27. Tiffany

    Um, these look exactly like Tarte’s LipSurgence tints. They may be the same, since the colors are VERY similar, as well. I think the Tarte ones are more pigmented. In any case, I love my Tarte tints and they’re very moisturizing as well.

  28. Valentine

    Hmmm, these shades are a little darker and duller than I prefer, but Mega Melon looks ok. I would love to hear that these are uber-moisturizing and long-lasting but will wait for your review. :)

    Too sheer for me

    • Bubblewrapper

      I have the Fuller Fig. I love it. Perfectly neutral, my lips but better. I have the Tarte Lipsurgence as well, and as much as I love Tarte, I like the Clinique better because it is more moisturizing. I think I prefer the Clinique right now because of the season, the winter is really drying me out.

  30. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Street Jaime Jaime

    I think I’ll skip these. They kind of all look like the same colour to me. :(

  31. Scientific Housewife

    I’ve been using Graped Up for about a week and I love the color pay-off and that it doesn’t dry my lips. I want more but they are sold out almost everywhere!

  32. I’m surprised at how sheer these are, can’t wait for the review!

  33. April

    Can’t wait to see your review on these. I have all of them and I love them! The first four do look very similar in your swatches, but I find that on the lips, they definitely look different. Some of them maybe not dramatically, but different enough. My lips are pretty pigmented too.

  34. I can’t wait for these to come out in the UK they all look gorgeous!

  35. Nora

    My mom has Fuller Fig and now I want one! Don’t know which one, though, so I’m really excited about your swatches!

  36. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Leticia Leticia

    I’m a super fan of Clinique products, so I’m really looking forward to play with these!

  37. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Yenny Yenny V

    I noticed that the outer casing is plastic. How are you supposed to sharpen these?

  38. I cannot wait to see what you say about these. I’ve been eyeing them ever since I say the first advertisement for them.

  39. angela

    When will you review them?

  40. Mark M

    I have sensitive skin..

    When I tried the clinique moisturizer – I broke out in welts on my chin and nose….painful, dry and burning. The lady at the Clinique counter “convinced” me that I needed to stick with the moisturizer.

    The issue just compounded.

    The moisturizer is WAY too drying. So I stopped using it all

    I switched to Shielo’s Complexion Moisturizer, with the Shielo Anti-Aging Complexion Scrub (as my face wash) and within 2 days, I had NO itchy bumps on my forehead. The welts disappeared. I also had beautiful plump hydrated eyes.

    I ended up buying 2 more moisturizers and gifted one to my sister who now loves it! Shielo is “allergy tested, dermatologist recommended” products.

    Look at the ingredients…for one thing, Clinique does not list them online and are very reluctant to give out when you call….go with Shielo if you finally realize clique is not working out for you….

    i hope clinique will produce more products………. ^.^

  42. TeeL0veBeauty

    I want to try these :)
