Clinique Vitamin C Lip Smoothie Kisses Set

A week ago, I saw (and bought) this darling little bag of Clinique Vitamin C Lip Smoothies at Bloomingdale's. Priced at $25, it was irresistible. The set is a great opportunity to try some new shades - or to try the Vitamin C Lip Smoothies for the first time.

Your "recommended daily dose of lusciousness" comes from the juicy, moisture-rich, antioxidant-laden lip colors. Each of these little darlings brushes on smooth color and shine. You lips will look and feel their healthy best in each of the four shades in the pink floral bag: Nude-tritious, Pink Me Up, Goodness Grapecious, and Mango-thon. Although smaller than the "regular" Lip Smoothies, those in the set are perfectly sized for your handbag.

The Vitamin C Lip Smoothies were introduced last summer. At the time, I wrote that they feel very creamy, and the colors are gorgeous. They have some staying power, but don't feel at all "clingy." The coverage is sheer to moderate - simply pretty. The Lip Smoothies comes in a tube with a brush at the end. You prime the brush with product by turning the base, allowing you to use only what you need.

If you are interested in trying them, this is a great time to buy. There are gifts with purchase at Clinique counters this month. Bloomingdale's still has theirs. Macy's also has one through April 11, and the Saks promotion runs from April 15 (tax day) until April 25. All are slightly different; you might want to collect several!
