Sometimes you need a pop of color from all the lights that wash you out on stage. Plus it’s always fun to try out different looks. The Velvet Rose Quickliner and Soft Matte Plum Lipstick by Clinique are my favorite finds at the Macy’s Clinique booth at the Bay Area Women’s Expo held at the Santa Clara Convention Center this month. They were giving out a $10 Macy’s Gift Card that you can use towards your makeup purchase so it was a steal! The lipstick is a soft matte. Application is really smooth and doesn’t dry out my lips. The lipstick and lip liner last for hours. It’s the worst to perform and find that you got lipstick all over the mic. Haha! But this one is great. I definitely recommend trying out the Clinique line.
