30 Days of Lipstick, Day 9: Clio Art Lipstick in Luminous Coral

I woke this morning to another sunny autumn day, so I decided to choose a lipstick that was likewise bright and cheery. I opted for Clio Art Lipstick in #51 Luminous Coral, which I also reviewed here: Clio is a popular Korean brand, and its Art Lipsticks are encased in the most chic, adorable tubes I've ever seen! Here's a picture of mine:

Clio Art Lipstick- the packaging is lovely! :)
 Luminous Coral is a sheer pinky-coral shade, that is comfortable and smooth on the lips. I can't remember exactly how much I paid for it, but I believe it was approximately $25 (at Cathy Phuong Cosmetics in the China Town Centre). Here is a picture of it in the tube:

And here is a picture of it swatched on my arm:

In terms of comparisons with other lipsticks in my stash, Luminous Coral is most similar to MAC Crosswires lipstick, which I reviewed here: The difference is that Luminous Coral offers a slightly more sheer and moisturizing formula and has slighltly less pink in it than Crosswires.

Here are a few pictures of me wearing it:

The Verdict

  • This sheer, moisturizing formula is very comfortable on the lips
  • A perfect shade of coral for fair skin
  • Unique and beautiful packaging!

  • At over $20, this is a rather pricey lipstick
  • Because Clio is a Korean brand, this lipstick may be hard to track down!

I hadn't used this lipstick in several weeks, and it was a pleasure wearing it today! Not only is it fun to show off the packaging during touch-ups throughout the day, but the formula also didn't leave my lips dry, despite the cooling weather. A perfect autumn treat! :)
