I've always been drawn to the Clinique brand in general: it's youthful and refreshing, and very wallet-friendly at the same time. I wanted to try one of their paraben and fragrance free Superbalms, and went for the shade 02 Raspberry. Its promise of extra-moisturisation also appealed to me. The shade looks lovely on me. It provides just a hint of natural pink colour on my lips, and looks nice and glossy, but not too shimmery or at all sparkly. It also feels very comfortable on my lips. However, the staying power is unbelievably poor! The fact that I have to re-apply it frequently just leads to lip gloss addiction, which just makes my lips even drier and easily irritated. Clinique managed to disappoint me on that front.
I like this gloss. It is a pretty color and not overly sticky. It's very moisturizing and I like keeping it around and reapplying when necessary. It's not really that different from any other gloss so I don't always buy it. I love when it comes as a free gift, though!
I love this lipgloss, it's not sticky and has no glitter! My lips feel moist and the colour is like my lips but better. The scent is weird, but soon disapears. I like that it doesn't contain fragrance, I don't want to eat that! Love it, and will definitely purchase again.
This is my HG lip gloss. I own a lot of different brands and colors, but for my regular everyday face, I'm pretty much married to this. It doesn't promise much or have any magical benefits, but it has a nice flush of color that works well for daytime makeup, stays on for a few hours and keeps lips moist and comfortable even in winter.
I don't agree with the reviewers who say that this lipgloss smells strange...I've used this for years and have never had an issue with the scent. I adore the consistancy and color payoff of this product --super glossy and non-sticky, great tint/flush of color to the lips. This usually last a few hours when worn by itself (which is pretty good for a lip-licker like me) and provides great moisture to the point where I don't need a lip balm as often. Raspberry is the only color I've tried because I never really got around to testing out other shades, and I must say, this is my HG bright red lip gloss. I will continue to buy and rave about this product.
I will never by this gloss again! Everything is good about it: It's not sticky, but glossy, it vivids my lips and stays long. Actually no miracles, but no troubles as well, except a big one - it gets incredibly stinky after couple of weeks. I know most of Clinique products are 100 % sans parfum, but in this very case I wish it were opposite, because the smell this lip gloss gained since I've been using it just does not let me breathe. My lips become a souce of persistent odor not so easy to get rid of. A total disaster.
Best lip gloss I used so far! No scent, no flavor, and no tingling sensation like BE's, which used to be my favorite till I was really tired of the tingling. This lasts long, at least 4 hrs without losing the glossiness or moisture. I use MAC's cremestick liner in sublime culture first, which barely noticable on my lips, then this gloss. Perfect match, healthy looking lips.
Horrible colour on me. Smells strange and doesn't last long. A Clinique product i really dont like, which is a first for me
This one is my favorite Superbalm gloss color. Not a big fan of colored lipsticks, so this works perfectly, giving me just a hint of color. It makes my lips feel really good too.
wow, this particular Clinique lip gloss basically fixed every single Clinique gloss's flaws I have ever noted.
I used to hate Clinique's lipglosses, because they were not only super sticky, but also leaves a gross white residue after wear. And it's ridiculously difficult to remove the residue. Just overall, gross.
I do like their lotion stuff (3-steps) so a couple of weeks ago when they had a 7 piece sample set with any purchase over $21.50, I went for it (bought their 3 step lotion) and picked this particular gloss as one of hte samples. I've always disliked their glosses, but I thought to try this anyway (especially since the other lip stuff were all lipstick, which i never use).
That said, i'm more than impressed with this one. It glides on super smooth, and it's not any more sticky than Lancome, which I like. In fact it might be a little less sticky than Lancome (but more sticky than Jordana, which I've always complained about being too nonsticky as it comes off really quickly). The color of this one is pretty much clear (maybe a dash of red, but i don't really notice), but gives a very nice gloss to your lips. After a while of having it on, it fades from high gloss (which looks rather fake and too much like "that person put WAY too much gloss on...) to a nice shine that doesn't stand out too much. It gave a rather natural impression of shine to your lips.
It have no taste (which is good, because the other clinique gloss i've used had a distinctly disgusting druggie kind of taste) nor smell, despite the "raspberry" label. And i can't emphasize enough how much I love the PERFECT stickiness (not too sticky, but just sticky enough that it last a while). Perfect for poeple who naturlaly don't have much lip pigment, or just want a high gloss/gloss without a great deal of color.
I actually have no clue how much it cost normally since I got the sample. I'll bet it's expensive though. XD
