Clinique Kiss the Bride

I wish I could insert a wedding bells soundtrack throughout this blog! How sweet are these new limited edition lipsticks from Clinique!
 Obviously targeted towards new brides (clever Clinique) but we don't need to have a partner to purchase these!

 There are three shades in the collection all in the long lasting, soft shine finish.

Having done a lot of bridal makeup over the years I think these shades are really great tones. More often than not my brides have gone for soft washes of colour rather than a punchy vibrant shade.

Not only would these lipsticks be a great choice for brides but a really gorgeous gift for a bride you know. The names are adorable...

"Will you", "I do" and "Honeymoon". Even if your bride doesn't wear it on the day it's a lovely keepsake of her big day we think.

We only have two of the three shades unfortunately...

Left: "I Do" Right: "Will You"





 The shade in I do is a soft rose berry with a very delicate, fine silver pearl fleck. This gives the lips a gorgeous plum tone without too much depth.


I Do

 






















The shade in Will you is a similar tone but with much more of a pink base. It also has a super fine, gold light reflective fleck running through it. The gold makes this a more warmer tone to opt for.

Will You

























The shade we don't have is called Honeymoon and is a soft fleshy nude.

 All colours have a soft moisturised sheen. I found when used with a lip liner, blotted and then another layer applied the longevity was good. It will get you through the aisle walking and line up kisses anyway!

The only downside to these lipsticks is that they are online exclusive. If I know anything about brides it's that they want to try lipsticks on, photograph them to check the payoff, ask their friends and mum what they think and then purchase! Difficult when buying online but at least our swatches should help a little. All three shades are limited edition.

* Just been informed by Clinique these are actually now available to purchase in store at John Lewis if you prefer to try them on.

 These shades are available online now for £17.50 each from www.clinique.co.uk

  1. I really hate it when brands only send out 2 of the 3 products, surely giving PIXIWOO 1 more lipstick to review would help them sell thousands?

    These would definitely make gorgeous gifts for brides, I think anyone's day would be brightened by a swipe of happy memories.

  7. Even though I am married already there is always space for a soft wash of color in my stash.
