Colour Quench Lip Balm
a truly wonderful lip gloss
I gave this 4 stars because -- the product description says "subtle color," so I was expecting a LITTLE bit more color than this. I got Sweet Papaya, which is ALMOST completely clear. It DOES have an EXTREMELY subtle (as in, SLIGHTLY-there-but-almost-not-there) tint of coral orange. (The color looks quite vividly coral-orange in the tube but....)
I will say that I tend to layer on lip gloss on the reasonably-thick side (because I'm almost 60 and my lips look plumper when they're highly glossed), so I CAN see a VERY slight orange-coral tint on my lips when I wear this (and nothing but this) -- the gloss adds just enough to color-correct the color of my lips (from the cooler side to the warmer side, which I really like).
The 2 uses I strongly prefer this gloss for are, first, the standard slip-of-lipgloss-over-lipstick OR the (slightly more modern) slip-of-lipgloss-on-bare-lips-followed-by-lipstick-on-top. Option B works amazingly well; whatever lipstick you use kinda blends into the gloss layer and the 2 mesh together to make a lipstick-colored high-gloss lipgloss. The effect in my opinion is simply stunning; I LOVE this product for working so beautifully doing this.
As for moisturizing -- yeah definitely, this is one of the most moisturizing lipglosses I have ever used. I'm very happy with this purchase & would purchase again.

Moisture do not last
I tried this gloss in the store and love it. Bought but wish I did not. Feels great but moisture do not last.

Good colour and shine but nothing really special..
This lip balm does not really offer lasting comfort as touted. The colour is beautiful but its moisturising effect is very short-lived and does not offer much protection in winter. As such, there really isn't any real skin care benefit to speak of even though it's advertised as such.
