*According to Cruelty-Free Kitty, Colourpop is cruelty-free, but Clinique is NOT. Makeup Maven, Kayla, says: Clinique is $18.50 for 3 grams while Colourpop is $7 for 2.10 grams. Both products are marketed the same a moisturizing lip balm with buildable color. Depending on the pressure & how much product you put on the color could be sheer or opaque. This is true for both brands. They give a very nice tint to the lips but also are buildable in color. Both brands have quite a few shades to choose from. The components on both are extremely similar - they look like a jumbo crayon. I actually like Colourpop's component more because on the top of the cap is an embossed sticker showing the shade name. Super helpful if you store your lip products up. Clinique has no smell while Colourpop smells fruity. I LOVE the smell of Colourpop. The smell lingers even after application which I personally love.Both brands go on smooth, hydrate your lips & last a long time. Reapplication was easy. Color wise the two I compared are not the same however formula wise they are almost identical. I wouldn't have been able to tell the difference between the two had it not been for the color to give it away. If you're a fan of Clinique definitely give Colourpop a try. You could get 2 from there for less the price of one Clinique balm!
I think that Clinique is better because Clinique has more pigment and the lipstick is long lasting.
I own every shade of Colourpop and quite a few of Clinique and I don't like either brand over the other except for price. I get pigmentation from either brand depending on the shade I choose and both last for a few hours depending on if I am eating or drinking. Colourpop is a fantastic brand with an unbeatable price. We are blessed to have them!
