CLINIQUE Pop and Matte Lip Colour + Primer Collection

Hi There! If you love lip colors as much as I do, you will love this post. I want to share with few of my favorite Clinique Lip Colour + Primer Collection. I have both their pop and matte lip color. As I have mentioned in my earlier post I am not a big fan of matte lip colors but if the right color is available I am willing to take a chance and Clinique and successfully met my challenge.

Description: The pop lip colour + primer include rich, weightless formulas that fuses bold, saturated color with a smoothing primer. These lip colors deliver a lightweight formula that lasts long, glide on effortlessly, creating a modern-velvet finish that keeps lips comfortable while color stays true. These products are allergy tested and are 100 percent fragrance-free. From the pop lip color collection, I have Poppy Pop – a mid-tone orange creme, Passion Pop – a rich classic red creme, and Plum Pop – a soft, neutral plum creme. Both Passion Pop and Plum Pop have satin finish, while Poppy Pop has a more shimmer finish. The matte collection include a dramatic pop of matte color and primer in one with a full-coverage coat. This formula is also  allergy-tested, and free of fragrance, formaidehyde, formaidehyde resin, toluene, DBP (dibutyl Phthlate), and camphor. From the the matte collection I have Bold Pop – dark berry. 

Verdict: Passion pop is more of the darker red than I like but still is a good collection of have. It’s amazing and creamy. The application is lovely and it stays on for hours without drying or losing color.  I love the pigmentation of the color. My favorite color by far has to be Bold Pop. I love the bold cherry color. In my olive skin tone I have to be careful about the nude lip colors I choose, but Plum Pop goes well with my skin tone.As I mentioned I am not a big fan of matte lip color but I was pleasantly surprised how moisturizing the matte colors are. The color range is great. Its moisturizing while still matte. If you are looking for bold colors you are more likely to get them in the matte version.  My final verdict, if you’re looking for a lot of depth to your lip shades, you’re unlikely to find much here. However, if you want bold colors you the Pop Matte Lip Color + Primer will give you that. For $18.50 these lip colors are great choice to have but I would rather go with matte version for a change.

No-Bake, Healthy Chocolate “Bird Nests”


Hi There! Today, I want to share with a delicious, healthy chocolate recipe that I have come across online.

Ingredients

Nests

  1. 1 bar Superfood Chocolate
  2. 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  3. 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  4. 1 1/4 cups coconut flakes
  5. 1 tablespoon honey, maple syrup, or brown rice syrup

Protein Filling

  1. 1/4 cup plain yogurt or vanilla yogurt of choice
  2. 1/4 cup blueberries
  3. 1/2 serving Vanilla Protein
  4. Optional: 1/2 tablespoon sweetener of choice

Direction:

  1. Lightly oil a muffin tin (you’ll only need about six to seven of the cups).
  2. Break up the chocolate bar into smaller pieces, and then heat it the coconut oil, cocoa powder, and honey either in a small saucepan on the stove (on low) or in a microwave safe bowl in 20-second intervals in the microwave, stirring often.
  3. Once everything is melted and mixed in together, add the coconut flakes and stir until evenly coated. Scoop the mixture out and divide evenly among the muffin cups. Press down gently, allowing for a dip in the middle to make a nest shape.
  4. Freeze for at least 15 minutes, and then pop the chocolate nests out of the tin.
  5. Combine yogurt and vanilla protein. Then place a dollop of the mixture in the center of your nests and decorate with two to three blueberries. Store in the fridge.

I hope you enjoy making it as much as I loved writing about it.
