Today's review would be about Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss
I got a trial size of 7ml in Sasa Hongkong for HK$25
I believe this is awfully a lot already because I can't seem to finish off all my glosses.
The applicator is the flat slanted type but since this is a trial size it's a bit smaller than the standard ones. Cute!
At first I thought this was a scented gloss because of the variant name Raspberry but this turns out to be simply fragrance free which is extra tender love and care for your lips.
Here's a swatch of Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss in Raspberry
It goes on very sheer actually and there would be slight tinge of pink color that's enough to give you a healthy dewy look.
Here's another swatch on my lips
I love the high gloss shine- it looks like water reflecting but it's not so sticky like other gloss I've tried- it's actually quite smooth and silky. As the name of the gloss states, this is a superbalm as it provides a surge of moisture to your lips.
The Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss lasts looonnngggg! I can't emphasize how long lasting this is- it can go on for 4-6 hours while eating which is long enough for me because nothing really lasts that long enough.
Another swatch from another angle
I usually don't find myself attracted to make up brands that don't have cutesy packaging- that's why I love Jill Stuart so much, but Clinique is an exception because of the superb quality products that's sure worth your hard earned money.
My prayers go to Taiwan especially in Kaohsiung City where they have been rattled by a 6.4 magnitude earthquake and Bon told me in Taipei it's around 3 magnitude. It's so scary because there are a lot of tall buildings and condimiums in Taiwan- who wouldn't be scared if you're living on top and then suddenly an earthquake hits you?
It's also scary for us in the Philippines because Kaohsiung is very very near to us- it's accessible if we travel to Batanes- I've heard you can almost swim going to Kaohsiung Taiwan if you're in Batanes, haha! Of course it's safer to travel to Taiwan by boat but I'm not sure if the immigration would deport you back to the Philippines. But, the point is we should be prepared now; who knows when we'll be rattled by an earthquake?
