A Review : Clinique Lash Power Mascara and Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss

As to my previous blogs, I went to a Clinique Party, held at Rustan's Makati last June 18. And by attending the event, participants/attendees got the chance to get free samples from Clinique.

I got some great products in my loot bag.
Free Samples :
1. Youth Surge Night
2. Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss
3. Lash Power Mascara
4. Repairwear Intensive Eye cream

Given the chance of getting this great product samples I commit myself of doing a review and promised Charles of wickeRmoss that I will be reviewing the products of Clinique and blogging and vlogging about it.
(Clinique and wickeRmoss did not forced me to do this review nor paid me, I voluntarily and whole heartedly did this review and all opinions are mine and nobody influence me in anyway.)

For the meantime, I will only be reviewing the Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss and Lash Power Mascara as I have already gotten ample time to make a review for these as I have been using the mascara and lipgloss for more than a week now. As for the Youth Surge Night and Repairwear Intensive Eye cream, I will be doing a review for these products after two (2) or more weeks of use.

So going to the review!

From Clinique site :
Lip balm with a colourful twist. Luscious, high-gloss shades treat your most undermoisturized skin to soothing shine. Instantly relieve dryness, protect with antioxidants and more.
  • Coverage: Sheer
  • Benefits: Moisturizing
Price ( Full size ) : Php 900.00*

My opinion :
1. It is very shiny on the lips when applied.
2. Very hydrating/moisturizing.
3. I love the fact that it is a BALM and a GLOSS at the same time.
4. A little goes a long way.
5. Hydrates/Moisturize your lips for long hours.
6. Not sticky or heavy on the lips.
7. Leaves your lips smooth and supple.

1. A bit pricey for a gloss or a balm.
2. Clinique in general is not widely available, so for someone like me who lives in the province, it is hard to purchase.

Would I purchase this product? YES, despite the price, the product is well worth it!
Would I recommend it? Definitely for those who can afford and near to a Clinique booth or counter.

All in all I LOVE this product!
Without Superbalm

With Superbalm

From Clinique site :
Mascara with staying power. Vows to look pretty for 24 hours without a smudge or smear. Lasts through rain, sweat, humidity, tears. Yet the formula removes easily with warm water. Unique brush reaches and beautifully lengthens even the tiniest lashes. Ophthalmologist Tested.
  • Benefits: Long Wearing
Price ( Full size ) : Php 1,400.00*

My opinion :
1. Flatters your lashes.
2. Easy to apply.
3. Does not clump however or how many coats you apply.
4. Reaches the tiniest lashes, even my not-so visible bottom lashes.
5. Long wearing, last the whole day!
6. Smudge and smear proof.
7.Defines and volumizes my lashes.
8. Easily removes with warm-water. NO NEED for make-up remover! its GREAT!

1. A bit pricey, but doable for those who can buy.
2. Formula dries a bit slow, so if you are not careful it will transfer to your eyelids or under eye.
3. I don't see any big of a difference in length. ;P

Would I purchase this product? I think so :D, despite the price, the product is very promising and a must-have!
Would I recommend it? Only for those who can afford and near to a Clinique booth or counter.

All in all, I also LOVE this product. Among-st all the mascaras I have tried, this works for me best!

Without Lash Power Marcara
 Can you even see my bottom lashes? It's invisible! :P

With Lash Power Mascara
 Look how my bottom lashes are now seen. ALAS!

So how about you? What brand is your lipgloss or mascara? Have you drop by a Clinique Counter/Booth to try out this great products?! So what are you waiting for? Try it for yourself and be the judge.. :)

Clinique gave out these products as a free sample- this blog is not sponsored by Clinique. All opinion are mine and nobody influenced my assessment.
