Clinique PUNCH Pop Lip Colour and Primer Review


I am very active on Instagram and these Clinique Pop Lip Colour and Primers lipsticks kept popping into my feeds and eventually I gave in!  Especially when the packaging looks too cute in the pictures.

I purchased 2 shades from the 16 available shades: Punch Pop and Melon Pop.  I’m reviewing Punch Pop today.

Here is what Clinique says about these Lip Colour and Primers Pops:

“Luxurious yet weightless formula merges bold, saturated colour with a smoothing primer. Glides on effortlessly to give a modern-velvet finish. Colour stays true and keeps lips comfortably moisturised for 8 hours.


Here’s the ingredients list for your reference.


First thing I would like to cover is the packaging.  Clinique has cleverly used a colour coded base with this new range of lipsticks.  They photograph beautifully! I was a little surprised of how light in weight each lipstick is. Maybe I’m so used to the hefty weight of Tom Ford lipsticks.  Well, there explains the price difference:)

Punch Pop is a bright pink with cool undertone.


The texture is very buttery yet lightweight on the lips.  It applies smoothly and opaque in just one swipe.  The opacity reminds me of Nars Audacious lipsticks.  I find Punch Pop to be too bold for everyday wear so I normally would just dab on my lips slowly and use my fingers to blend it out.  The lasting power is phenomenal!  Without eating I think it lasts for more than 6 hours on me.  My lips would start to feel dry after wearing it for around 3 hours but my lips are normally quite dry.

Verdict:  I love Clinique Punch Pop Lip Colour and Primers although I do wish it is a little more moisturising on my lips.  I have my eyes on Cherry Pop and Poppy Pop.

Here’s a selfie of me wearing Punch Pop with very minimal eye makeup and no blush.



Have you tried any of Clinique Pop Lip Colour and Primers lipsticks?  What is your favourite lipsticks at the moment?

Thank you for reading.

    You look absolutely beautiful in that photo! It looks moisturizing, strange that it’s not. =(

      Thank you so much! It is very moisturising when first applied. In fact I would not apply my lip moisturiser prior to applying Punch Pop as it would be too creamy then. My lips are normally very dry though so I think it could be moisturising for 8 hours on someone who lips are not so dry. Thank you for reading lovely!xo

    If they’re like Nars Audacious, but at a cheaper price, then I think I need this! I saw them at the counter and loved the packaging – a bit chunky but I love the pop of colour. I’m boring so I’d probably go with Beige Pop or Nude Pop! 😛

    That shade is so beautiful! I have Melon Pop but I don’t find it the most long lasting!

      I will do a post on Melon Pop soon. Unfortunately I have to say I have a similar experience:( Thanks for reading!xo

        No bother! Yeah I think it really depends on the shade, some of the darker ones are apparently more long lasting so I may have to give them a try!

    I saw them in a department store and checked them out quickly but walked away. Judging by your review I made a mistake.. Next time I’ll take a longer look because Punch Pop is a gorgeous color! – Jirrine

    Woah! I never expected this to be as pigmented as Nars Audacious. Now I want to try this more!! Hopefully it won’t make my lips dry. Nars Audacious don’t, and if this keeps my lips flake free, I think I’ll find a new favorite 😀
