I am still in the process of packing but I am still trying to find out other things to do, not to pack. Are you also a last minute packer, do you also delay packing forever?
Back to topic, Clinique recently added new colors to their Long Last Glosswear line, two of which I was testing for a couple of weeks now. The names of these are so cute, the ones I have are called "Kissyfit" and "Cupid's Bow". Kissyfit *chuckles* Today I would like to share some swatches and FOTD as well as my thoughts about the formula.

Clinique Long Last Glosswear comes is a plastic tube with sponge applicator, the lid is twist open and has a metallic coating. The consistency of the gloss is not too runny and it is easy to apply on the lips. The texture is more on the stickier side, I find it close to MAC Lipglass formula. It is a personal preference if you like more stickier or creamy glosses but to my experience some stickiness means longer lasting as well which is the case with these. They last about four hours on me if I can go easy on coffee and tea. Clinique Glosses are light weight and comfortable to wear. A huge thumbs up to the fact that they are perfume free. I know that some people just can't wear MAC Lipglass because of the scent, so they may check these out instead.

Clinique Long Last Glosswear in Cupid's Bow is a warm orange red with glossy finish. This one doesn't have pearly particles inside. Cupid's Bow is very pigmented, with one swipe it is quiet opaque and with the second swipe you can achieve a coverage below. Although this is not a color I would wear very often, I really enjoy the opaqueness and glossy finish.

Clinique Long Last Glosswear in Kissyfit is a mid-toned mauve pink with silver pearly finish. Kissyfit is a little sheered than Cupid's Bow but it can be build up to full coverage. Kissyfit is definitely more my color so lately I found myself reaching for it quiet often.

Final thoughts: Clinique Long Last Glosswear's new colors come in fun names and two I have tested have very good color pay off and opacity. If you don't like stickiness on your gloss, these may not be for you though. Big thumbs up for being perfume-free and long lasting.
Each tube has a generous 6 ml/.20OZ of product (as a reference MAC Lipglass have 4.8 g) and retails for about 20 EUR.
Have you tried Clinique glosses yet? Which is your favorite gloss formula?
