Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss - Rootbeer

Tester: Multi-Ethnic (Puerto Rican & Italian) about Jamie Lynn Sigler’s complexion with lips that are dry and lightly pigmented.

“I might have had a little thought in the back of my mind that a lip “balm” + a lip “gloss” would not equal such an attractive product, but that thought was soon zapped once I actually tried this!

This shade is a really flattering nude that made my lips instantly look gorgeous and yet still natural. It should be noted that in the container the product looks milky brown but when it was more of a light brown with a peachy/pink tint to it on my lips. The texture was just right – a medium weight that still felt light and airy on my lips. This is because it is a hybrid.

This gloss does not feature any smell or taste, which was fine for me. It is also an amazing moisturizer. All day my lips were soft and supple with no dryness, peeling or flaking. This was perfect for day time since it gave me healthy, flattering color, without being too obvious. The finish was actually a sheen rather than a high shine gloss. This is perfect for a “natural” look – or just one of those days when you only have a few seconds to put yourself together! :)

Another plus is that there is a LOT of product in the tube. It has lasted for me forever and this is using it pretty much every day. I also love the slanted applicator tip which made it very easy to apply without having to get my fingers involved!

This shade will work with all skin tones. However, if you have very pigmented lips you may want to try using a neutral/brown lip pencil first to just even out the tone. This is a makeup bag must for me now!” V.D.
