Hello! I got a mini of this product and I fell for it so much that I bought a full sized product of the same color later.
I bought it for $35. Size 6 ml.
I have my lip gloss in the shade #08.
The shade is adorable. It looks peachy pearl and I’m absolutely in love with it. It has a lot of glitter in the formula, which makes it shine satin on my lips.
I like how noble it looks.
My lips look pouty with it on.
The lip gloss doesn’t have any aroma, which is so typical for Clinique products.
The packaging is of nice quality - I’ve been using this product for more than 6 months already, constantly carrying it in my purse and there aren’t any scratches or scalds that appeared. All the lettering is still here and the top cap is nice. It doesn’t let the formula leak.
The gloss has a regular felt tip applicator. In general I like using it when applying the formula.
Consistency-wise the gloss is thick and gooey.
Make sure to distribute it well during application.
The product feels really tacky on my lips. If you ask me, then I’ll say that I feel fine with it, but I know that a lot of people hate such sensations.
If you go outside, then your hair is very likely to get stuck in your lip gloss.
BUT this tacky feel is neutralized by the fantastic wear time. This is the most long-wearing lip gloss that I’ve ever had.
It is able to stay on my lips the entire day, given that I don’t eat or drink anything.
It doesn’t bleed or gather with a terrible white film on my inner lips. All in all, I appreciate its performance.
The ingredient list is given on the box of the product.
If you’re going out and you know you won’t have any chance to touch-up your makeup, then without any further ado you can use this lip gloss and be sure that your lips will look gorgeous for some hours ahead.
If your lips don’t look their best and are chapped, then the product will probably look uneven and not pleasant. But, within some time it will smooth itself out and look amazing.
If only it wasn’t so tacky, I’d call it my Holy Grail. But we should know that tackiness means staying power. I’ve never seen a long-wearing yet non sticky lip gloss.
I have to take off one star for this tacky sensation. And I guess that the price is too high, unless you don’t buy it discounted.
My final thoughts:
I can recommend this Clinique lip gloss, only if you feel okay about the sticky sensation on your lips. In general, the product is excellent.
Thanks for your attention!
