Clinique Long Last Soft Shine Lipstick

The Clinique Long Last Soft Shine supposed to have moderate coverage, but in my opinion the coverage is pretty inconsistent. Among my 3 lipsticks, Red Red Red is very pigmented with full coverage, Bamboo Pink is moderate, and Golden Coral is sheer, very much like a Bare Brilliance lipstick. And I actually bought 2 out of these 3, so that's pretty unusual for me because I'm so picky with lipsticks that I rarely buy one unless I absolutely love the shade! The majority of the time, the cosmetic companies would have to bribe me into trying their new lippies, which explains why most of the lipsticks I own are GWP. Mind you, the purchases were seldom lipsticks :P

All pictures taken indoor with flash unless otherwise noted.

- Red Red Red: I have already reviewed this beauty in this Red Lipsticks! post, so I'm not going to bore you again with my babblings.

- Bamboo Pink: I understand neither the Bamboo nor the Pink in this lipstick. It's more of a cool silvery mauve lipstick with plummy undertones, a bit on the purple side even, at least on me. Not the best shades for my already pale lips, but when I go really light-handed, with a warmer gloss I could get its moderate coverage on sheer enough for my taste so it's not too bad. I have only used it a few times so I guess I have yet to discover its allure.

Swatch of Bamboo Pink, looks pretty sheer but it's actually moderate coverage. Picture taken in natural light without flash.

- Golden Coral: This tube gets the second most usage, next to the Bare Brilliance Poppy. Again, its orangy coral with warm golden shimmers won me over, and it's actually very sheer, so I use it more often than not. I actually bought this lipstick. Enough said.

Bamboo Pink is the one that most often comes with GWPs I think. If I recall correctly, I think I had a tube of that once... LOL. The other two shades are just gorgeous. You must show us a pic of it on.

Hi psychoexgirlfriend,

Yah, that tube I have is also a GWP :D I think almost everyone who was ever suckered into buying stuff for GWP has one LOL

I don't do FOTD often (me = lazy bum), but I'll wear either Red Red Red or Golden Coral next time for you ^.^ Most likely it will be Golden Coral because Red Red Red is VERY pigmented and frankly I'm quite...scared of it LOL
