Clinique Long Last Glosswear SPF 15 Fireberry Review

Hello all you beautiful people!

Before I begin I just wanted to say..It's been 15 days already since I started this blog..how time flies! And in this time, I have received so much love from all of you that it is very heart-warming..so many followers, so many page views, 3 awards!..It is a great feeling to know that my work is being liked and appreciated! Thank you all you lovely people! <3

So now, back to the topic, I received this gloss as a sample in my September Vellvette box. And I was so excited to use it but wanted to wait for a special occasion to open it. I thought maybe when my fiance takes me out for a date..but sadly Mr. Workaholic has not time for love :(
So I decide to be miss independent and go out on my own for some retail and food therapy ;)
And what better way to perk myself up than to try on my new lipsgloss! :D (it's so easy to make girls happy with such little things..dunno why guys make such a fuss about gifts!)

What Clinique says about Long Last Glosswear
Long Last Glosswear SPF 15 gives you longer wear than traditional lip glosses by helping it stay put for up to 8 hours. The richly moisturizing formulation also helps protect lips from the damaging effects of UV exposure.

Quantity: 6ML
Price: Rs.1300
Shades available: 18

My Take on the Product
I was very excited to use this product and was waiting for the right time! However, it did not live up to my expectations, honestly.

The shade Fireberry is a beautiful shimmery bronze-rust color. It is very festive and would go very nicely with both Indian and western wear! It is smooth to apply and the shimmer is visible on the lips too, but not so much as to make you look like a disco ball. It just gives your lips that full, juicy look which is oh so fresh and sexy!

The color is quite sheer. I don't have pigmented lips so I was OK with it, but ladies who have pigmented lips might not like it too much.
Moreover, it did not live up to its claim of staying for 8 hours. As it is the color is quite sheer. And after 4 hours and a meal, I had to reapply it.

The biggest con of this product is its stickiness! My God I got very bugged every time the wind blew because my hair would keep sticking to my lips! I felt like that dangerous live plant which has this sticky substance which makes bugs and dust stick to it *ewwwww* So that was a bummer!
I would suggest using this over a lipstick for that added dimension to your lips or just like that if you are just looking for shine with a hint of color.

Pros
1. Beautiful color. Would go with any outfit.
2. Shimmer gives that juicy fresh look to your lips without making you look like a disco ball.
3. A good variety of shades available
4. Has SPF 15 so you can wear it and bask in the winter sun without having to worry about harming your lips!

Cons
1. Sticky! Makes hair, bugs, dust and everything else stick to your lips.
2. Color is very sheer. Girls with pigmented lips might not be able to use this without a lipstick.
3. Staying power is not that great.

Overall Verdict: I have seen better lipglosses in the same price range, if not cheaper. I like the color and the shimmer but the stickiness has disappointed me.
Will I repurchase it? NO.

Have you tried this range by Clinique? What did you think about it? Lemme know!

Until next time!

xoxo

    1. Hey! Yep it is so apt for the coming festival season! Even I am more of a lipstick girl but sometimes a gloss gives a better finish and shine..try Loreal lip glosses..they are really good :)
