How are all of you? I have not been around much off late owing to my hectic schedule but who can stay away from IMBB for long ? Well, here I am back with the review of one of my current favourites which is a lip gloss from Clinique. Please read on to find out more about this product.
Product being reviewed: Clinique Superbalm Moisturising Gloss
Shade: 01 Apricot
Ingredients: I have thrown the outer carton so I don’t know the ingredients
Product Claims: Lip balm with a colourful twist. Luscious, high-gloss shades treat your most under moisturized skin to soothing shine. Instantly relieve dryness, protect with antioxidants and more.
Price : Around INR 1000
My take on Clinique Superbalm Moisturising Gloss
Packaging: It comes in a plastic tube which has a slant applicator. The slant applicator gives better control while applying the gloss on the contours. It has a unique steel finish screw cap which is tight on the tube. The tube is transparent and will be easily located in the vanity case. The packaging is cute, sturdy and travel friendly.
Colour: Though the name says apricot and seems to be a peachy pink shade but on the lips it comes out as a totally clear gloss, not even a hint of the colour.
Fragrance: All Clinique products are devoid of any fragrance which makes me a super fan of this brand. This gloss being no exception has no flavour or fragrance.
Consistency: This gloss is semi thick and is the least sticky. Though it has a fairly good consistency but it does not feel heavy on the lips at all.
Efficacy: I think in one line I would say, “It does what it claims” It is super moisturising on the lips and does not bleed . It provides a pretty sheen to the lips and they look glossy for a good 2-3 hours. College goers and working women will love it alike for the glossiness.
