We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Clinique’s offering: I think there are a few too many similar shades going on here – and lots of the reds seem to have pink undertones – meaning they will turn pink on me.
Gucci: too sheer for my preference
YSL: Stunning as always – and there are some gorgeous shades here.
I just wonder about the longevity of those slim casings – does the lipstick break inside them more easily?

7 of those 11 YSL shades look nearly identical on the lips and nearly identical to ALL the Clinique shades, which also look nearly identical to each other.
So you could just buy 1 and yet feel you own all 14.
Except that I have about 20 lipsticks that shade! 🙊

I’ll be interested in the Clinique reds but the other 2 products – $40 ($50 here in Canada) for what seems to be basically Revlon Lip Butters or MAC Patentpolish (gee, I miss both of those)….no thanks. I’ll hang onto my cash.

As some have stated, the similarity in reds is notable; besides slight undertones, you could get away with almost any and be happy. However, the Clinique look like they want to burst out of their seams and feather all over, while the YSL look sharp! I love the rich velvety finish on the YSL.
Fatal Carmin would be exactly where I’d put my money, if I needed another red lip.
