Review of Clinique Butter Shine - Pink-a-boo by bubblysteph
Please click continued for a swatch.
This lipstick provides a nice but subtle shine, like with a very thin layer of gloss. For the colour, it is a beautiful medium pink with golden shimmer in the tube. It has a little bit purple undertone but I guess it's warmed up by the golden shimmer when applied. It's more like a sheer pale pink when on my lips. The shimmer isn't detectable when applied but leaves a shiny golden sheen, which I really adore. However, I find the shimmer a little bit "gritty" - kind of rough when I "press" my lips together. The shimmer particles can be made more refined.
This has decent staying power too as most moisturizing lipstick won't have very good staying power. But of course, it's not that long lasting when compared to most lipsticks. I think it lasted at most 2 hours on my lips. As for pigmentation, it's okay for a sheer lipstick. However, I am not sure if this will show up as well on very pigmented lips. You may also be surprised by how quickly you sue this thing up too - way too quicker than all my other lipsticks.
