Clinique’s own Long Last Glosswear SPF 15 is my life saver. For me this is not just a lip gloss, but it seems to work better than any other chap sticks I have ever used. My mum first introduced me to this gloss saying that it worked wonders in the winter to protect her lips from getting chapped and on top of this had a really nice look to it. With this recommendation I decided to get some.
At first I must admit, I did find it a bit sticky but you kind of get used to this or just put up with it because it is soo nice. I went for the shade stellar plum which is quite subtle, it’s practically the same colour as my lips so it just adds that little bit extra to your finished look without going over the top!
It’s one of those dress it up or dress it down glosses, there is a little bit of glitter in the mix so with a full face of makeup you can really accentuate your lips. However, it’s also perfect for day to day wear as the shimmer effect isn’t too obvious – there is also an option of getting non-shimmer if you want that polished matt look.
If you’re feeling adventurous you can also layer it up over some lipstick too. It’s translucent so you can see the colour of your lipstick underneath, it just adds a beautiful glossy effect.
The one thing I was unsure about when purchasing this item was how it claimed to be ‘long lasting’. There have been a lot of beauty products I’ve bought that say this, but after a morning, or sometimes even after a coffee, I find myself no longer wearing lipstick. This though really does live up to its long lasting title. I can find myself going a whole day without needing to top up my lips which is probably one of the main reasons why I absolutely love this item!
At £16.00 it is quite pricey, but I adore this lip gloss and would really recommend that you give it a go. You definitely get what you pay for and it definitely does what it says on the tin!
