If you’re like me, then you can never have too many lip glosses. Clinique’s Smoothie Kisses will be the magic bag for you. A silver pouch filled with four different flavors, you have your choice of what shade you would want to wear each day for any occasion imaginable.The shades include a brick red gloss called Berry Boost, a light and bright illustrious pink named Pink Me Up which should be great at brightening up your day, Mango-thon, an almost-sienna colored sheen and Goodness Grapecious, a dramatic berry stain look. It’s also good for your lips too! Each flavor is filled with antioxidant ingredients, including Vitamin C, to help lips with moisture and shine. And for these cold, blustery months, that sounds like a good deal to me.
My favorite, even though I initially was drawn to Pink Me Up, turned out to be Berry Boost. You can layer it over your favorite lipstick for a extra boost or wear it alone for just an every day sheen. The color can be as subtle or intense as you want it. I wore it over my favorite MAC Runway Red and everyone kept complimenting how good my lips looked!
The only problem I found was the click pen and brush dispenser. Because the formula is so sticky, it has a hard time coming out of the brush, and when it does… look out! It has the chance to squeeze out everywhere if you’re not paying attention to how much formula you’re squeezing out. Just a few “click and wait” turns will do it.
The Smoothie Kisses set is still available at Clinique counters nationwide and Clinique.com for $28.00. Not bad for four different colors and a nifty silver clutch bag, right?
