Review: Clinique Smoothie Kisses

One of my latest purchases from Sephora was Clinique's Smoothie Kisses ($46 value, for $25). I decided to pick it up because I remembered I really like Clinique and haven't used a whole lot from them in a while. It's a set of 4 Vitamin C Lip Smoothies in:
-Pink Me Up- Soft pink with flecks of silvery pearl
-Mango-Thon- Burnt orange with golden shimmer
-Goodness Grapecious- Soft dusty purple
-Nude-tritious- Soft nude brown with shimmer
Lip Smoothies are moisturizing glosses that contain Vitamin C and Antioxidant protection. These are 4 of the 6 colors available. The bag is tiny and cute, but I can't really think of a good use for it other than holding the glosses. Maybe some change or something. All of the colors are wearable and quite pretty on, my favorites were Mango-Thon and Nude-tritious, but they lack staying power. The formula itself is okay and I like that it's unscented/fragrance-free, but I wish it had different packaging. They're on the small side and I dislike that you can't see how much is left in the tube, like Stila's. So you never really know when you'll run out. Also, I really dislike the pen/click packaging. You have to twist it a million times before anything comes out. And remember that it's slow, so you click it twice, nothing comes out, click it a few more times and then a minute later a too much comes oozing out. It's just too much trouble. That's why I will NEVER buy another clicky-pen gloss. Ever. Wands and brushes are the way to go. Pot gloss gets a thumbs down too. Except for MAC's Tendertones. Those are nice. Anyway, it sucks because I really wanted to like these. :(
