I love this gloss, it keeps it shine and colour for a long time. It isn't sticky or tacky either. Money well spent and a great selection of colours.

Love this gloss
I have many lip glosses and find nothing compares to this one. Great subtle colour and not too sticky.

Classy and feminine.
For starters, the tube is gorgeous! It's also quite sturdy and I love how sleek it looks.
The formula itself is rather sticky and feels thick so I use it sparingly. Applying to much may result in a glue like effect! The shine is lovely and looks incredible when light reflects off it. I purchased this in 'Air Kiss' which is a subtle peachy-pink colour that isn't too bad and works for any occasion.
It is long lasting (probably due to the stickiness), even with eating and drinking.
Such a luxurious lipgloss to own!

Moist and luscious
I tried this just yesterday and I must say I am impressed with how moist my lips felt and what a beautiful colour this gloss was on my lips. It also stayed on a lot longer than other lipglosses so for that it has me won over! Try it. You won't look back

Pretty shimmery finish
Very pretty lip gloss with a nice bit of shimmer.

Not sticky, not too shiny, yet sexy, not over the top or too glittery.. Great for non-lipgloss wearing girls! It stays in my handbag always. I really love it and I don't even wear lipgloss usually. Clinique hit the nail on the head with this one.

I purchased this product in the colour 'Sunset', and the lipgloss is packaged in a sleek, clear acrylic tube with a luxe silver cap, and a spongy doe-foot applicator. It holds a reasonable 6mls of product.
The 'Sunset' shade is a shiny peachy-bronze colour, infused with golden sparkles. It applies smoothly with a sheer, glossy wash of colour and shimmer, and lasts for a good 4-5 hours, with plenty of tea-drinking and cookie-eating involved! During the wear, my lips felt moisturised, nourished and I actually enjoy the slightly tacky feel... does anyone actually like wearing gloss that's as runny as water?!
The most unique feature of this product is the built-in SPF 15+. Not many cosmetic brands offer sun protection in their lipgloss range, which is rather ironic, considering that the lips have such thin and delicate skin! As my lips are prone to sunburn, the product gives me great confidence that I can have the best of both worlds: luscious looking, protected lips. It's perfect for everyday wear as it protects my kissers from harmful UV rays rain, hail or shine.
I would definitely repurchase this product, possibly try this out in a pink/raspberry shade as well. Overall, a high quality, high performance and high shine lipgloss from an iconic US brand. I also always take advantage of Clinique's generous Gift with Purchase offers - it makes the premium pricing of this product much more palatable!

Great product, smooth on application great for day or noght wear I wore this one on my wedding day and it looked great. Has sun protection in it and seems to stayput for a long time I re-applied here and there when went to the bathroom but no major wear when I looked in the mirror. Love the cute packaging it makes the product look like a lovely quality product.I dont seem to think the product has a smell to it at all. Product feels nice and smooth not sticky at all, feels like a great quality product and lasts for a very long time. I find the product has a great quality of colour, colour stays well. I am very happy with the product so will re-purchase. worth the price as it is a quality product.

hated the taste!
While i liked the colour and shine of this product, I couldn't stand the taste of it - it was awful. I had to give it to a friend because it literally made me feel like I was eating plastic or sunscreen! I normally love clinique but this one was a bust for me.

Best lip gloss
I have about 5 shades of this lip gloss and love them all. I find the gloss goes on easily is not too tacky and lasts a while - although I don't mind reapplying throughout the day. My favourite shade is Whisper - just the right amount of subtle sparkle.

I have exactly the same as above
It is great for day wear as it also looks after your lips against harmfull UV rays as it has SPF 15 in it. Lovley packaging love the silver :). Great daywear product as isnt so intense but a cute subtle colour.

I'm a big Clinique fan and prior to this my favourite lipgloss was the super balm in raspberry, but it lacked an SPF. This one has the SPF factor which I consider to be essential and also a great range of colours. I grabbed First Blush as a nude starting point and now plan to collect the others. I found the moisture, rather than the gloss effect lasted most of my day and although the product is 'sticky' rather than smooth I had no problems with hair or crumbs sticking to my lips. It's a bit pricey, for a gloss but great quality, lots of product and feels great on.

Great shine and lasts a while
I really like this gloss. Its got a great shine, is available in a good range of colours, and lasts a while as long as you don't drink too many hot beverages. But as others have mentioned it's a bit on the thick side. Very similar to the Plump and Shine product range.

I really REALLY loved the nude colour and the slight shimmer. It did add moisture to my lips, although it was a tad bit too sticky.
Don't use too much of this gloss on a windy day with your hair down or else you'll have a hard time pulling your hair away from your sticky lips.

Long-lasting luscious lips
I love this lip gloss, I have it in a few colours & it looks fabulous. Lasts for hours & hours (although I think the claim of up to 8 hours is a little rich) Certainly lasts longer than any other gloss I have used.
Yes the texture is a little heavy but that is completely to be expected with a long lasting gloss & certainly doesn't feel unpleasant.

It comes in a typical cylindrical tube, and Knockout Nude is a brown colour with the slightest hint of gold shimmer which I detected only because I was looking at my lips at close range for the purpose of this review. My lips are quite pigmented and no lip gloss has ever imparted noticeable colour onto my lips, and this lip gloss is no different.
First of all, this is a good lip gloss - I feel that it moisturizes and condition my lips, and with the SPF 15 is an added bonus to prevent UV damage. The formula is quite thick but non sticky. It is also fragrance free and is quite long lasting but not up to 8 hours as it claims. There are also 18 colours in this range, so you are bound to find one (or several) that takes your fancy. The brush applicator is soft and evenly coats my lips with gloss. Besides the $35 price tag, I honestly can’t fault this product!

FLIRTY, FUN AND GLOSSY....
I fall victim to any beautiful lipgloss colours with combined SPF protection.
Designed to last all day long, Long Last Glosswear in my opinion would have to be made for Robot Women who never eat, drink or smack their lips together!!
For me, the formula only lasted about 4 hours.... But needless to say I can cut Clinique some slack here. They deserve it because in every other way these glosses impressed me!
After applying this and heading out for a night on the town and eating dinner and having a drink, very little gloss remained on my lips just a stain of the colour. Honestly though this didn't bug me at all because I don't mind reapplying a beautiful lip gloss a couple of times a day.
Long wear formulas tend to be often very drying, but this gloss actually seems to moisturise rather than dry your lips out. If you like your glosses sticky but not in an awful way, then you need to take a closer look at these.
The Long Last Glosswear really impressed me, as these are top quality lip glosses for the money, and with the added sun protection these deserve all the hype they have gotten.
I can't wait to rock everyone of the colours at the beach this summer...

*Glamour, Shine & Sparkle*
Without a doubt this is a very dressy lip gloss. Beautiful for both night and day. I think it would be very pretty as a Year 10 or Year 12 formal lip gloss.
It's classy container has a lovely luxurious feel to it - I would call it a beautiful and elegant product. It gains huge bonus marks from me for having an SPF of 15 too. The only draw-down with this product is the price (maybe a little pricey for a teenager on a teeny budget) and the sticky feel to it which tends to stick to my hair. This sticky feel does pay off though in the way that it clings to the lips and lasts for a long time - about a couple of hours without eating and if you do eat watch that the food you're eating isn't sticking to your lips like it did with me!
So if a longer lasting, glamorous lip gloss look is what you need, in my opinion this could be just the thing if it's not windy or you have your hair in an up-do.

I have this in cabana crush and I have to say I love it.
The SPF factor is a lovely addition, as I am terrified of the idea of sunburn on lips - dreadful.
It is really longlasting, so it's sticky - I like that in a gloss. It actually has PIGMENT so the colour that you get in the tube is what shows when you apply it, there is shimmer in it, something that I was initially afraid of, but after applying I love how it reflected and made my lips look 'mirror-like' but not in a tacky way. The bonus was that the shimmer particles were really fine and did not look obvious or there were no large glitter particles. :)
Overall, the product really lived up to its claim and I would continue to repurchase it as I have not yet encountered any other lip gloss that moisturises as well as this and has as much pigment as this as well as a good SPF factor. :)
I loved the doe-foot applicator which aids in precision application so you don't get nasty lip gloss stains around the outline of your lips and the clear tube enables to you see how much product you actually have left, so its very friendly. Being slim and looking very chic, it fits in your pocket.. your bag and basically anywhere so its very portable and convenient to carry around with you!
Recount of my review:
Packaging: 5 - awesome
Price - 3.5 - a little exxy so try to buy when its gifttime or online ladies :)

This is my favorite gloss. The coverage and staying powder is excellent. It's moisturising and super-glossy, and my favorite part is that it doesn't have a 'flavour'. The only downside it that the colour selection is a little limited. I'd also like to see some more 'shimmery' shades.

Sticky but great!
It was a little sticky at first but you only need a tiny bit. I love the fact that it's SPF 15+! how amazing! I wore a subtle colour and found you couldn't really tell I was wearing it other than the glitter.

I have this in Cococabanna or something, a shimmery darkish pink. I love the finish feel and look that this gloss provides, for the price its worth it, the doe foot applicator is ok, but i prefer the tear shaped ones that lancome have, however this isnt an issue.
I love how this moisturises and actually has pigments in it, so it shows up on your lips, whats suprising is that it actually lasts a long time, as opposed to other brands that advertise the same claim of "long lasting gloss".
The other thing i like about this is the fact that you can use this on a bold lipstick (ie red red red!) and dot a little of the goss on your cupids bow to get a really nice look. :)

Gives good gloss
Despite the face that this can be overly sticky (my partner flat out refuses to kiss me when I wear this), I love the lovely shine and gloss it gives.

Long Last Glosswear SPF15
I love this gloss. It lasts longer than any other popular brand, keeps the lips moist for hours, and the added bonus of SPF 15 is fantastic especially for Australia's climate.

Great color & idea, too sticky and thick, too pric
I got this in 'Air Kiss' in a sample size. I love the idea of a gloss with SPF and was very keen to try this...
Sadly, I was disappointed. It's a beautiful color but was so thick and gunky that if i didn't apply lip balm _first_, it felt like I was dragging the applicator over my lips (with lip balm on, application was much smoother and more 'normal'). Once the gloss was on, it looked gorgeous but felt excessively thick and waxy. Perhaps it's becoz of the SPF content or just what clinique lip glosses are like in general but since I'm new to both, suffice it to say I won't be buying this in a full size. I'll be trying other SPF-lip glosses instead.

Clinique Long Last Glosswear SPF 15 - air kiss 10
Although I LOVE most Clinique products, it pains me to say this product was a bitter disappointment. I loved the colour, however, the texture was overly thick and sticky. The taste is similar to plastic (I think the sunscreen is the problem!).
Rating: Sep 27, 2009 11:17am
Love the Glosswear range and even more so with built in SPF. Great colours, feels lovely on the lips, lasts well - only downside for me - too pricey!! Would buy when a special is on, but can't afford to purchase all the time as I go through lip gloss too fast!

these lip glosses have a really nice feel on your lips, not sticky and have a lovely shine to them
Rating: Oct 29, 2008 11:51am
this gloss is a lovely product. provides high shine and gorgeous colours. it doesn't really live up to the 8 hours of coverage that clinique claims it to have. but nevertheless the lip gloss is lovely, just needs to be reapplied often.

My mum gave me a gift pack with six tubes of this gloss for x'mas last.. I love it!
