I own many of these Clinique lipsticks, and I love all of them. My favorite colors are Beauty, Bamboo Pink, A Very Different Grape, and Fizzy, which I use religiously every day. The colors are beautiful hues, apply perfectly on the lips, and are smooth, leaving lips feeling supple and nice. A problem, I've noticed, especially in the winter, is that my lips start getting dried out when using this lipstick. I apply it in the morning around 7am, and by 10am I find my lips peeling and have to apply a different lip balm on my lips. I would recommend wearing chapstick and then the lipstick on top of it to avoid this problem. Other than that, I would be using no other brand of lipstick than Clinique's. The lipstick itself is not oily or coming out in blobs, like some of the other lipsticks that are being sold. It is smooth, crisp, and comes in great colors; just beware the drying lips though!
