It's the weirdest thing: Do you ever notice how gloss--slippery, emollient, sticky--gloss can dry out your lips?
I thought it was just me, but apparently the white lab coats at Clinique have heard of this before. Their response? Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss.
Equal parts lip balm and high-shine gloss, this ultra-hydrating, antioxidant-enriched quencher is such a relief on the lips, whether it's worn alone or on top of another color. Around 4 P.M., when I slip it over my lipstick or lip stain (I'm a fan of both), it feels so good, I can only describe it as the equivalent of a big bottle of Smart Water after 30 fast minutes on the elliptical. (Make that 60 for you sporty types.)
While it already comes in a ton of pretty colors, Clinique just unveiled four limited-edition shades: Passionfruit, Guava, Hazelnut, and Cocoa.
I'm coo-coo for Cocoa: It's a sheer neutral that gives all of my tawny lipsticks and stains a pretty sheen without messing with their original color.Read More »from A shiny gloss that won't dry out your lips
