A few weeks ago I told you about a Clinique haul that I made when I got to go out and have some adult time! It’s pretty sad when I got an hour off to myself three weeks ago and I literally STILL remember my time fondly. #adultingishard Anyway, there was one little thing that they were out of stock on when I was at the Clinique counter and I wasn’t able to buy it, yet I kept thinking about it so I went back. Bare Pop Lip Colour + Primer is so pretty and the perfect nude lipstick and I’m so glad it’s finally mine!
A couple years ago I bought a gorgeous lippie from Benefit on clearance at Sephora. It was a nude that has been discontinued, but it was the perfect warm nude shade that was literally so gorgeous and flattering and amazing that I wore it down to a nub. I do love a good nude lipstick but I never thought I would find one I liked that much again…until now.
Bare Pop is a nude demi-matte that has a tiny bit of micro-shimmer lustre that I absolutely love. It is so pretty and so easy to wear. I’ve owned this for a week and it’s already a makeup bag staple! I own two other lipsticks from the Clinique Lip Color + Primer line (Love Pop and Grape Pop) and Bare Pop is just as lovely. The formula neither hydrates nor dries out my lips, and when the shade fades over time it does so evenly and leaves behind some of the micro-shimmer. It’s long wearing and takes a good six hours to really fade without a trace. Love!
I’m wearing Bare Pop below with some of my favorite makeup. We went out of town over the weekend and I was doing my makeup in the car, but didn’t realize I didn’t have eyeshadow primer with me, and I had about a drop of foundation in a little sample bottle, so I’m barely wearing any cover up!
