Clinique Nude Pop, Bare Pop, Beige Pop Pop Lip Colours Reviews & Swatches

Nude Pop Clinique Nude Pop Pop Lip Colour + Primer Lipstick ($19.50 for 0.13 oz.) is a light pink with strong, warm undertones and a cream finish with light shine.

ColourPop x Becky G Traviesa Lip Duo Review & Swatches

Traviesa Colour Pop Traviesa Lip Duo ($11.00 for 0.15 oz.) includes a deep purple matte, liquid lipstick and a deep purple lip pencil. The liquid lipstick was workable on its own, while the lip pencil was best paired with the liquid lipstick rather than worn as a standalone product (as some like to do). The liquid lipstick layered over the lip pencil definitely improved the overall application and opacity of the end result. ...

Drunk Elephant's new mask promises "dewy and rejuvenated" skin after overnight use. When I tried it, I noticed that the formula, which...
