Colour Quench Lip Balm
As a lipgloss addict.....
I have tried so many lip glosses, expensive, cheap, moderately priced, and so on. Clarins Color Quench Lip Balm has the perfect balance between therapeutic lip balm and sexy gloss. The colors are great, the tube is pretty, and the gloss/balm tastes delicious. I probably have 4-6 tubes in various purses and pockets.

Color Quench Lip Balm
LOVE this stuff! I have this in Peach Nectar and Strawberry Smoothie. Both colors are sheer & have a nice sheen to them. I prefer my make up to look very natural so the Peach Nectar is just 1 shade above the clear - a nude look with a hint of shimmer. The Strawberry Smoothie is a more vibrant shade, but still quite lovely on. These glide on easily & last a long time! Lips feel great & never sticky or gooey.

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.
