Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer Lipstick ($19.50 for 0.13 oz.) is described as having “rich color” with a “smoothing primer” that “keeps lips comfortably moisturized.” Most of the shades had semi-opaque to opaque color coverage in a single layer, and the shades that were a bit weaker were somewhat buildable. The deeper shades tended to perform the best, while a few of the lighter shades settled slightly into lip lines (not too noticeable, or not at all, in person).
Some shades were more smoothing than others, so I think the “smoothing primer” claim was the weakest and wasn’t always met. The texture was lightweight, lightly creamy without being heavy or too slippery, and didn’t tug during application. The formula was comfortable and hydrating while worn, and they lasted between four and six hours. There didn’t seem to be any scent or taste.
