Clinique High Impact Lip Colour in Cider Berry

Few days ago I received my orders from It's a bunch of perfumeries (mom's addiction). Alongside my strawberry box, I got a gift from my special someone all the way from LA. Ah, yes, long distance relationship can work! (camera shot)
Sorry for my shiny face haha

Among the many sweet-naughty-nice things in my special love box were Clinique High Impact Lip Colour SPF 15 Cider Berry and Clinique Butter Shine Lipstick in Ambrosia. For this post, let me share with you a swatch of Cider Berry no.14.

Cider Berry is a heart-stopping red. :)

Here's an ad for the Clinique High Impact range. Each tube is priced at $14.50, for more information, visit a Clinique counter near you, there's a lovely one at Rustans Makati for those in the Philippines, anywhere else in the world, visit :)
I'm curious about the nude, farthest left tube.

This lipstick makes me want to go to Belgium because that's where these tubes are made. Imagine, a country that makes amazing lipstick and chocolates? Heavenly.
Cider Berry no.14

When it comes to skin care, Clinique is among the top brands beauty enthusiasts run to because they produce ranges that are suitable even for the most sensitive of sensitive skin. Their allergy tested formula allows Clinique to lead the race of skin care systems, hailed very important in an epidemia of surreal forms of allergic reactions.

But that's the skin? How about the lips? To me, I think it's always a different form of talk: skin care and cosmetics. Good thing though, the High Impact Clinique tubes offer the color pay-off you want from a cosmetic product without the sting while also enjoying the benefits of a skin care (your lippies is still skin!) such as sun protection and moisturizing effects.

I like it cause it didn't cause me chapped lips, which is such pain. It also has a hint of gloss on it; but it's not too glossy. I was actually looking for a matte red lipstick but when I received this, I settled and calmed my urges down. It satisfied me. :)

To those who have very sensitive and sometimes adverse reactions to make-up, here is the lipstick's ingredient list, Although it is allergy tested and 100% Fragrance Free, you might still want to know the stuff you rub on.

Trimethylolpropane Triisostearate, Petrolatum, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Microcrystalline Wax/ Cera Microcrystallina/ Cire Microcrystalline, Polyglyceryl, 3 Diisostearate, Octyldodcanole, Polyethylene, Lauroyl Lysine, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Sterols, HDI/ Trimethylol, Hexyllactone Crosspolymer, Coffea Arabica (Coffee) Seed Extract, Astrocaryum Murumuru Seed Butter, Tocopheryl Acetate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Octyldodecyl Neopentanoate, Cholesterol, Tribehenin, Lauryl PCA, Polyglyceryl-6 Polyricnoleate, Diethylhexyl Syringydenemalonate, Isopropyl Titanium, Triisostearate, Sorbitan Isostearate, Caprylic/ Capric Triglyceride, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Silica, Tin Oxide (+/-) Mica, Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 72090), Red 22 Lake (CI 73360), Carmine (CI 754470), Red 6 (CI 15850), Yellow 6 LAke (CI 15985), Bismuth Oxychloride (CI 77163), Red 33 Lake (CI 17200), Red 28 Lake (CI 45410)
