Clinique Superbalm Moisturising Gloss
Advantages: Lovely look, colour
I use a number of different Clinique beauty products, mostly their skincare range but I also use their Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss. I first bought one of these in a Sephora store in Los Angeles (where it was quite a cheap price) and have been hooked ever since. Clinique is owned by the Estée LauderCorporation and was premiered in 1968 as the world's first allergy tested, dermatologist-driven line.
Clinique describe this lip balm as having a colourful twist with luscious high gloss shades that treat your most undermoisturised skin to soothing shine. They instantly relieve dryness and protect with antioxidants and more.
This is basically just a fancy lip balm but I use it as my everyday lip colour and love the way it makes my lips feel. The lipgloss comes in a plastic tube with a silver screw top lid. What I like about this lipgloss is that there is no applicator, you just apply the lipgloss using the top of the tube. This makes application really nice and smooth and lends itself to a really nice full lip in just one sweep of the tube. You just squeeze the end of the tube to get the balm to come out and I find you really only need a little bit to cover your lips well.
The lipgloss looks wonderful on. It gives my lips a nice wet look but this is not sticky in any way which is nice. You get a really nice hint of colour without it being too overpowering and all about the colour, it's more all about the shine and the enhancement it gives your lips.
I have this lipgloss in the rootbeer colour, it was just by chance that I picked up this colour but I absolutely love it. I'm not really a pink or red kind of person so this one suits me down to the ground as it is a sheer coffee brown nude colour. However, there are 7 other colours to choose from if you do like pinks or reds, grapefruit, apricot, mango, ginger, currant, raspberry and lilac.
Each tube is 15ml and is a bit pricey at £13 but mine has lasted such a long time that I think the investment is well worth it.
