Thoughts: Clinique 'Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss'

This week, bored waiting for a train at London Bridge I popped into a newsagent's in search of a magazine. I was so excited to discover that this month's 'Cosmopolitan' (£3.50) comes with two mini Clinique products!

I snapped one up quick, and received my free 'Moisture Surge' and 'Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss'. There is also another edition where you can receive the '7-day scrub cream' and a mascara.
The concept of the superbalm is that it adds gloss and a hint of colour to the lips, while also acting as a conditioning balm. Mine is in the shade 10 Grapefruit, a pale blue-pink, and the mini size is 7ml (full size 15ml).
The gloss claims not to be sticky, and I would definitely agree with this. It doesn't give quite as much sheen as I would have liked, but it was a great bargain! Clinique seems to have a good range of neutral shades, and the full size retails for £13.50 (the same as MAC lipsticks).
I am obsessed with lip balm and carry one in my handbag at all times, so this product is great for using on the go. I would definitely recommend picking up a copy of Cosmo to get your free gifts!
