Clinique - "Pink With A Purpose" limited lipstick set (2013)

Hey guys!

So as the majority of you will know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month (and Depression Awareness Month, too!). Last year Clinique released a limited edition Chubby Stick shade (called plumped up pink), together with a little pouch. This year, they decided to go for a limited edition shade of their Almost Lipstick. Not gonna lie, I would've preferred another Chubby Stick, or a Chubby Stick Intense. Nevertheless, I got the set, just like last year - it cost EUR 19.99/USD ~27, of which ten go to a breast cancer awareness campaign. Of course I thought "Why not?". Then I got the parcel and... let's just say I'm a bit disappointed.


The lipstick comes in a skinny, mainly silver tube that has a pink ribbon print on it at the bottom. This, to me, is not an "almost lipstick", but an "almost nothing". I don't mind sheer color - otherwise I wouldn't like the Chubby Sticks so much. But this still disappointed me. If your lips are more pigmented than mine, good luck getting this to show up on them. Also, just like the Chubby Stick from last year, this has silver sparkle in it, which I'm not too big a fan of. The shade name is Pink Ribbon Honey, by the way. The second disappointment was the little pouch. From the online store pictures, i thought it would be a sturdy, flat little pouch, which it is absolutely not. If you want pictures of it let me know. The set is still available if you're interested in getting it. I guess at least I donated to charity...

  1. Klassischer Fall von "Wie Sie sehen, sehen Sie nichts!" - für den Preis natürlich enttäuschend :/

    1. Haha, genau :') Schon, aber wenigstens geht was davon an einen guten Zweck, das tröstet mich ein bisschen...

    2. Ja, schon klar - aber hättest du das Geld einfach so gespendet, hättest du dich zumindest nicht geärgert^^ Ich finde sowas immer blöd - schließlich will ja eigentlich der Hersteller was Gutes tun... Aber vielleicht freundest du dich ja doch noch mit diesem Hauch von Nichts an...

    3. Haste auch wieder recht. Aber irgendwie muss man ja das Gewissen beruhigen ;) Ich hab eigentlich gar nichts gegen leichte Farbabgabe, aber ich hatte einfach nicht erwartet, dass sie SO leicht ist.
