As I mentioned in one of my other posts Finding Things You’ve Completely Forgotten About that I’ve found many things lately that I’d completely forgotten about, and left behind when I moved to uni. Another one of these things is Clinique’s Defining Lips Long Last Lipstick Preview Palette (gosh that was a mouthful!).
My mumma bought me this last Christmas, and I only used it a few times before going back to uni, forgetting to take it with me, and then completely forgetting all about it. I’m so glad I re-found this!
This palette is made up of four different colours. I love the palette box, the outside of the box is made up of a mirror, as well as containing a mirror inside the palette. As you can see from the swatches the four colours are very similar, but when applied to your lips, they all give a different look. The colours also live up their name of “long last”. I applied one the other day around 12, by 6/7 in the evening the colour was still very much visible! Also when applying the swatches to my hand, it took forever to wash off! I find that its a very moisturizing lipstick too, it makes my lips feel soft and not too dried out which I’ve encountered from other lipsticks before.

Out of all the colours I’d say Pink sand was my favourite, its a pretty light colour. Merlot is the darkest out of the colours, and I’d probably wear it more for a night out, whereas the other three are more day time colours.
I’m glad I found this again! And I’ll certainly be making more use of it now!
