Most Helpful Positive Review Color isn't the same, but it's actually hydrating now
I've loved Angel Red for years. When I went to buy it again, I found that they have added a "3D pearl center core" and it's no longer a round stick. The downside is that the color is no longer the same as it was. On the upside, my lips don't dry out at all when I wear it. The finish is slightly less glossy than before, but I'm okay with that. I like this satin finish—not glossy, not matte. I tried probably ten other shades to see if there was another shade that I would want to wear, but I'm making do with Angel Red again—just not the color it used to be, unfortunately.
Most Helpful Critical Review So very disappointed
Extremely disappointed, hate it. I think it's a cheap way to waterdown your prior product that was working just great, btw. I also think you fail your customers when you don't educate your stores that this item was being changed and the colors are just not available for months to buy - Heather Moon is my only go to color. Send out some communication so buyers are educated and can answer these questions when you decide to pull something off the shelf and change it.
Aside from not being able to find any inforamtion for months on why this product was no loger available and undersand what was going on, after seeing what you've done with this product, huge fail #2 - you clearly didn't check with your existing customer base to try 'testing' your product before launching it.
And in response to your one 'merchant response' to a customer who indicated the new product doesn't stay on like the prior 'long lasting' one:
"For a little more staying power, try using our Quickliner for Lips underneath to keep the lipstick in place all day without feeling matte! Our online Consultants are happy to help you select a shade and assist with an exchange/return if needed. Click the "Talk to a Consultant" icon to be connected."
What a sad response. Who wants to spend more money for another product?? You took out lisptick and replaced it with something no one needed changed or wanted. You didn't reduce the price but then suggest purchasing a liner?? Forget it.
Go back to the original long lasting line and leave it alone. It was working the way it was, and if you wanted to change things up, you should have spent more time, if any, with a focus group and roll one or two colors out before changing over an entire line.
As soon as I can find a comparable color, I'm out. Loyalty is fleeting today and you have to do more to want to make customers stick around. I strongly recommend pulling this new line and putting the original one back in place.

Clinique makes the best lipsticks this one stays moist
BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL
Nico from Massachusetts
The new formula goes on unevenly, concentrating most color around the edges of my lips where it makes me look old and tired. I used Dramatically Different lipstick for a good 25 years very happily--it was the only lipstick I use. The new formula looks bad, wastes product (is that the point, perhaps?), and is disliked by most people who've tried it. I won't buy Clinique lipstick again unless the original formula is reinstated.
Seaster from Sunny Carolina
Love the formula and the color Silvery Moon. Will be back to try other colors.
Why did you change the formula???
Alison from NC
I agree with Mary from WI on July 12, 2020!! I was introduced to the "original" formula lipstick in 2000 for my wedding portrait & fell in love with it!!! BEST LIPSTICK EVER!!! Finally found a lipstick that didn't dry my lips out, gorgeous colors, lasts forever! A couple of months ago went in to buy a tube & it had the new formula. DRIED MY LIPS OUT & they PEELED non stop!!! Horrible!! The consultant told me that I must be allergic to something in the new moisturizing dot in the lip stick! So glad I keep all my lipsticks because she then sold me a retractable brush so now I can use all my "old" lipsticks (dig into the tube with the brush,) & even though they may be "old" they are PERFECT for me & my lips & my lips haven't peeled a day since!!! Extremely extremely disappointed that we don't have the option to purchase the "old" formula!
Perfect lip color!

Have used Raspberry Glacé for many years and it is always the perfect color for all occasions.
It keeps my skin in good condition every day.
Gemini from Portland
It's great. It keeps my skin in the best shape.
Clinique has ruined dramatically different lipstick line
Mary from WI
I have been loyal to your lipstick brand for decades....even when you dropped my favorite colors because your lipstick was smooth and creamy with a shimmer. BUT you recently changed the formula by adding a core among other things and now I hate it. It clumps and cracks drying on my lips making it look hideous and my lips uncomfortable. WHY did you alter perfection? Unless you revert to your previous formula (which I doubt) I will not buy it again. Searching for a new brand.
My favorite lipstick!
kygrace from colorado
Candoodle & Raspberry are my favorites for every day. This lipstick is moisturizing and the shape makes it really easy to apply precisely (no liner needed!). I wish I could try all the colors!
Bamboo Pink Clinique Lipstick
af1093 from Penfield NY
I use year-round to keep my lips moist. Shade is just enough color to look casual, natural and healthy.
Amazing, long-lasting, and hydrating!
Zee from Baltimore
I absolutely love these lipstick! They have an amazing, soft feel when you put them on (almost like a lip balm) but are extremely pigmented and long-lasting! I have 5 of these, and they're all my go-to as of late. The colors are absolutely gorgeous, and the formula stays consistent throughout the shades. These are the only lipsticks that don't dry out my lips, as well. Amazing product!
Great color and feel but melts easily
Hareem from New York
This is one of my staple lipsticks and I love that it doesn't make me break out in allergies like products from comparable brands. However, if you leave it in a room that doesnt get air conditioning in the summer months, it will soften/melt and create a big mess inside its tube. Refrigerate if you live in a place that has hot summers.
WendyleeP from Kenosha Wisconsin
Too frosty a color. Because of Covid-19 I could not check the color. Very disappointed.
I didn't like the color.

I am so surprised by the abundance of negative reviews. I love this lipstick! It is moisturizing and lasts all day. I enjoy the softer colors -- can wear with anything.

Don't understand the hate!
rj2020 from California
I'm not sure why these lipsticks are getting so many negative reviews. These are now my favorite line for daily ware! They are so moisturizing I can wear them all day without my lips cracking. They go on easily, but have enough pigment to make an impact. Prefect for the office!
LS from Las Vegas
Feels smooth and creamy. Love the color.

I Love Clinique Lipsticks!
