One day about a week ago I set out to find Clinique’s new Long Last Glosswear SPF in Bamboo Pink. On my mission, I trekked to three different Clinique counters in downtown San Francisco (in three-inch heels), but it was nowhere to be found. “I’m sorry, dear,” the sales associates said. “It’s sold out.”
Never one to give up easily, I finally got my hands on Clinique’s little beast a few days ago (yay!). It didn’t take long at all to see why it has been so hard to keep in stock — it’s *gorgeous!*
Clinique has a winner on its hands. Clinique Long Last Glosswear SPF 15 in Bamboo Pink is a cool-toned pink with silver shimmer, and it’s a perfect, wearable shade for days when you just want a lil’ somethin-somethin on your lips but aren’t in the mood to spend too much time on your look.
For the picture above, I paired it with Bamboo Pink Long Last Shine Lipstick.
I suspect the color is why the product was so hard for me to find at Clinique counters in my area because the original Bamboo Pink lipstick was a huge hit. Clinique says it’s one of their top three best-selling shades of all time.
Bamboo Pink makes a great introduction to the Clinique brand. The lipstick has reached cult status among makeup junkies. I have a friend who bought 40 tubes!
Here’s a lip swatch with the lipstick version in all its cultish Bamboo Pink glory!

Bamboo Pink Glosswear’s cool pink is close to my natural lip color, which means I can be lazy (YES!) and forgo using a liner. Consequently, it applies in seconds. I think it still looks pretty all by itself.
Clinique Bamboo Pink Glosswear all by its purty lonesome self
Bamboo Pink moisturizes like Clinique’s other Glosswear SPF 15 shades and has good staying power, too. I just might have to adopt a few more of these precious tubes in the near future!
Check out Bamboo Pink Glosswear at your nearby Clinique counter, or purchase it from the store online.
AHHHH yeeeeaaah! I’m so glad it’s Friday, ladies.
Any plans for this weekend?
I guess things could be worse, LOL!
