Clinique is a brand that is close to my heart. I think its the first high end brand that I ever bought anything from. Clinique counters are always easy to navigate and not as intimidating as say MAC. I think the first ever foundation I bought was by Clinique (it's long gone so wont be in this post). Today, I only have a few things by Clinique as I have branched out in terms of my makeup quite a lot, but I still love the products that I do own and I use all of them regularly.
Clinique was founded by The Estée Lauder Companies in 1968 as the first dermatologist-created, prestige cosmetic brand. Sold in approximately 140 countries and territories, Clinique's mission today remains what it was from the beginning: to provide the highest quality and most effective products to enhance every skin type and concern, offering products for men and women of all ages and ethnicities. The brand's customized approach and quality products—all meticulously tested and carefully formulated with the latest science—have made Clinique one of the leading skin care authorities in the world. All makeup and skin care products are Allergy Tested and 100% Fragrance Free.
I own three of the Clinique lipsticks and all of them are different finishes!
Clinique Different Lipstick Spiced Apple ($15) - is a gorgeous warm toned orangey brown which almost pull to a light rust shade. It is one of my favourite warm toned lipsticks. It will suit all skintones. I love the texture which is not emolient like a lip butter but not very hard. One swipe delivers enough pigmentation and some shine. Great for wearing to work. I also love that it offers decent moisturisation.
Clinique Long Last Lipstick in Twilight Nude ($15) - is a great formula for a lipstick. It's long wearing (5 hours on me), is not drying, and a gorgeous shade of is a gorgeous shiny dark berry shade. You can see that I have used it so much as I love it!
Clinique High Impact SPF 15 in Extreme Pink ($15) - is my least worn Clinique lipstick. Don't get me wrong, I love the shade. I just wish it wasn't so frosty. I also think that it emphasizes any dryness on my lips. I do like that it has the SPF though.

The Clinique Blushwear in Pink Sugar is my favourite cream highlight which I use regularly for work but I think this has been discontinued so I won't go on about this one too much.
