SPOTTED: Clinique's Almost Lipstick

This February,Clinique will be introducing Almost Lipstick, a custom-fit lip colour for every lady! It isn't quite a lip gloss but neither is it a lipstick. It's an Almost Lipstick! Sounds perfect for ladies who are anti-lippies, like me! :D

Whichever brand that we go to, we are always faced with a myriad of lip colours and we are never quite sure which is THE one for us. Well, now Clinique has an answer for us! The Almost Lipstick comes in a sheer and smooth formula that allows our natural lip colour to come through. In this way, it creates a shade that is unique to us. 'A colour thumbprint, per se.'. (:

Inspired by the fandom that Almost Lipstick in Black Honey garnered in the States and fueled by this season's almost made-up look on the runways,Almost Lipstick now comes in shades of red, pink, violet and nude! A formula that is soft and delivers a hint of colour with sheer payoff, get ready for you clean, polished, no makeup makeup look (That was a mouthful!)!

This is what Jenna Menard, Clinique's First Global Colour Artist, has to say about Clinique and Almost Lipstick!

"I'm honored to join the Clinique family. My earliest memories about makeup are of Clinique makeup - it is all that my mother used. I love that the values of the brand are similar to my values as an artist. My philosophy is to make women feel beautiful without putting on too much makeup or doing a cookie-cutter makeover. It's about playing up a woman's individual beauty, helping her to look and feel beautiful. That's true whether I'm working with one of my celebrity clients or a friend.

Almost Lipstick's ultra sheer formula is a great way to experiment with different colours and introduce yourself to shades you've never worn before. Sometimes women are hesitant to try a pink, red or nude lip - Almost Lipstick can be the perfect stepping stone into other colour families.

Choose any shade and it will instantly be your own. When I work with women I tweak and mix shades that will be custom to them. Almost Lipstick works with your own natural lip tone and the shades will allow you to have a colour that's essentially custom to you the second it's applied. I have fallen in love with Shy Honey - it's such a wearable, feminine pink for anyone and also a great shade for Spring."
