I have used this gloss for quite a while. I use it alone or over lipliner. It is not sticky or thick but moisturizes my lips very well. It last as well as any well formulated lip gloss...about 2 or 3 hours. The color is a soft wash of pinkish-red. Very subtle but still polished looking.
I will keep using this and definitely buy more colors...this is a winner.
I got this as a sample, I love the mini-tube, actually fits in my pockets! Great color, more red than pink. Doesn't dry out my lips. It feels a bit sticky when you apply it, be careful not to apply too much!
I have tried this lip gloss in Mango and Raspberry, and I love that the shades add a tinted pop of fresh color to the lips. But what I liked most about these glosses were that they doubled as a moisturizing balm, something that has become essential for my dry lips. The gloss finish doesn't actually last very long, probably about 2 hours at most if you spend most of the wear time outdoors. But unlike most lip glosses or lip balms, this is one of the few that doesn't cause flaking or clumping for me. When it dries and the shine disappears, it just looks like clean lips again, and I just reapply.
This lipgloss has no scent and it's not a thick/sticky gloss, the Raspberry color is a sheer red and looks very natural on the lips. I do have to say that I don't find this gloss moisturizing, I even notice that my lips are a little drier then usual. If you are looking for a nice natural shiny gloss that does not make your hair stick like glue and doesn't have any scent this is for you! But don't expect this gloss to be super moisturizing because it's just average.
I got this as a part of the Clinique Bonus promotion. My lips are crazy dry - they peel daily and I do not help it much either as I always pick off the skin every time it looks like it wants to peel. I decided to use the Soft Lips Lip Ice Strawberry Flavour because it did help my lips to not feel dry. However, the lip ice only solved the dryness but not the peeling.
So I decided to use the Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss from Clinique and the next day I woke up and all the peeling seemed to have disappeared. I thought it was quite amazing. I will definitely continue using this as I have had peeling lips from childhood. Bad genes I guess :/
Clinique devotee for several years now....bought this after buying their colored superbalm (now discont?) several years back. Love the shape of the applicator and the metal cap, happy that the gloss is non-sticky (hate when my hair gets glued to my lips in the slightest breeze, as was the case with Lancome Juicy Tubes for me!) However, after a month or two of use, I noticed a mildewy odor coming from the bottle. It's pretty much gone now, but it was weird because I'm always pretty good about cleaning off the tip after I use it each time. Also would prefer it to be more pigmented (fairly pigmented lips already though).
I don't really know what to start.
The packaging is great - hygienic without a lot of bulk that tricks you into thinking that there's a lot of product when there's not.
The price is right, at $14.50, although it's not the cheapest lip product ever.
But it's just so comfortable to wear. I feel like this makes my lipbalm moisturize so much better - alone, they each last about half an hour (because i tend to bite my lips a lot), but together, i can eat a whole meal, have a heated conversation, and drink a cup of milk and still feel that i have moisture and a bit of shine on my lips. I like that it's not so shiny that it looks like I've coated my lips with a layer of vinyl, it just makes my lips look plump and healthy.
I'm not going to say that it's 'not sticky at all'. Hair will stick to your lips while wearing this if it's a windy day or something - but it does that even when I'm wearing a basic lipbalm like chapstick. I do find that it's significantly less sticky than stila lip glazes and lancome juicy tubes though, it has a jelly like texture rather than a goopy one. But yeah, I'd buy these again and again.
Awesome sheer red wash!! very pretty and moisturizing. I got this in a gwp and it looks great and youthful on my lips. I probably wont buy this on its own because it isnt a unique color that i exclusively need to seek out. But if I need to buy a filler product to meet my gwp purchase, this is quite practical and everyday product in my makeup aresenal.
This gloss is great! It's fragrance free, moisturizing, and natural looking. It's not sticky and doesn't dry your lips out. The raspberry color is a sheer yet bright strawberry pink, with no shimmer. A Clinique rep provided me with a small sample size and I would have never even looked at it otherwise. It's become my favorite laid back gloss. I haven't yet had to buy another, but I would. Although I'd rather pick up one in a gift with purchase b/c for $14 I can almost get 3 tubes of another favorite fragrance free lip shine. Clinique provides excellent basic products for sensitive skin, but sometimes their price points just cross the line for me - usually for their makeup, like here.
love this product. non-greasy and long-lasting. very moisturizing and no fragrance/flavor.
