Pros: nice colour, no smell

Okay, so I KNOW makeup has a shelf life, which includes lipstick, but I've always been bad at getting rid of only partially used products.  It just seems like such a waste, and I've yet to come down with some kind of irritation caused by a lipstick that was just too old.

My Clinique Colour Surge Bare Brilliance Lipstick in No. 12, Blushing Coral, is a prime example of makeup that lasts.  I've had this one for years.  Years.  My mom gave it to me when I was a teenager and needed some kind of lip colour for a concert I was singing in.  "So you don't look dead on stage" she said.  In any case, I didn't need anything too dark, just a little colour to brighten my face.

Blushing coral is a great shade for my pale skin.  It's quite sheer, but also has enough colour to show, and it's a pretty in-between kind of colour that's not too pink or too orange, just perfectly in the middle.  It even has a little shimmer for lips that glisten, rather than appear matte.  The lipstick goes on nice and smooth, and doesn't have any kind of funny taste or smell. 

I know I should really throw it away, and maybe I'll spring for a new one soon, but for now, my trusted old Clinique lipstick is still going strong!
