Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars
I didn't even notice that this is supposed to plump lips. I got it as a sample, and I thought it was just a balm. That was until I glanced in a mirror about an hour later on a day when I wasn't wearing any makeup. I was like, "Whaaaat?" This stuff not only gives a realistic, subtle plumping to my lips, it also seems to soften the fine lines around my mouth, and it lasts. With most plumping lip treatments, the effects seem to wear off in a couple of hours. Not this. It lasts for most of the day on me. It also doesn't sting me at all, unlike some other lip plumpers. I also have two spots that seem to always be dry, and this eliminated them in two days. The only downside that I can think of is that the full size tube is apparently not much bigger than the sample. But you don't need much. It might feel sticky if you apply too much. But you don't need much.
I was suckered by the "formulated with ceramides and shea butter" description, but I didn't think it was any better than your average drugstore lipbalm. I found it very drying for regular use and it made my chapped lips peel further. I tried using it after a shower as an occlusive but it didn't really last and my lips felt bald and dry within the hour...

Obsessed with how this makes my lips look! Im not a colored lip girl, so this formula is perfect.

I absolutely love this! I'mnin my 50's and well my lips have really aged. This lip treatment has given me healthy looking lips again ! I wear it to bed, and reapply after each meal. Im hooked !!! I have zero interest in any other lip product.

Great in terms of hydration and not much product is necessary but the cost is a bit much considering. Its similar to a standard balm that one could find way cheaper. Despite all of this again, its still an excellent product. I usually wear it to bed and wake up with soft lips and the fine lines on my lips are plumped out.

Keeps lips soft and don't have to worry about it melting in the car during the summer.

You only need to use this once and you are going to be amazed how well your lips feel.

As a life long severe dry lips sufferer, this is a dream come true. I have suffered with severe dry/cracked/peeling lips since i was a child due to a disorder of salt and water metabolism. I am now 27 yo and have unfortunately just now discovered this lovely product. I have tried everything! You name it I've probably tried it. I've stayed away from the more expensive stuff until recently and i hate that i waited so long. I felt almost immediate relief with this product. And the moisture LASTS. I don't have to reapply every hour or even every day! I can finally wear lipstick COMFORTABLY. Thank you Clinique. Please never change this. Y'all have changed my life, it sounds dramatic but imagine ALWAYS having dry lips and even exfoliating won't help. Even my dermatologist was struggling (God bless her)! One of my biggest insecurities, now vanished.

Clinique no longer makes the product I am looking for, and no one could offer me a subitute.

Shes thicc.. very hydrating and it's instantly become one of my favs! The price is a little much but i think its worth it!
Me from Seattle, wa
I have a dozen cherry carmex tubes around my house because constantly need to apply. After seeing a video about carmex being a bad offender for re-chapping lips, i did some research. There was another clinique moisturizer rated well, but $10 MORE. Some reviews stated that this one was better and more affordable. I now can go days without applying a moisturizer to my lips. 10/10

I have always struggled with dry lips. Once I tried this product, everything changed. My lips are finally hydrated and feel smooth. 10/10 would recommend!!
Maddy from New Hampshire
I just bought my second tube of this, and it genuinely is my favorite lip product I have used. It makes my lips feel so hydrated. I use it all the time, but it definitely can be used as an overnight treatment, or however you may choose to use it. Its not sticky, and stays on, which is an issue I've had with other pricey lip products.
Sherry from Idaho
Within 48 my scaly dry lips were soft and subtle. This will forever be my go too for my lipd
Jenna from Indiana
I have tried a lot of lip products in my days, but this is one of the best. Soft, non-sticky, and leaves your lips hydrated for hours. I received this as a free gift, and to my surprise, it's even better than the product I purchased. The best lip "gloss" I have ever had. Blew Glossier out of the water.
Kathy from Las Vegas NV
Since moving to Las Vegas my lips have been incredibly dry. The Clinique lip balm was recommended to me by an Ulta associate. I gave it a try and the results were immediate! I don't leave home without it!
Shania from Huntsville, AL
I FINALLY found an amazing lip balm/formula. My lips have gotten so dry over the years and I've picked at them due to anxiety which have left scars. I got a mini size of this in the moisture surge bundle… fell in love and saw a difference after a week. A little goes a very long way, it stays on my lips for HOURS- even after waking up at night. It made my lip scars and discoloration disappear within a month. I now have soft, pink and plump lips again. Instantly brought a few of the full size. In my opinion, the price is absolutely worth it.
Emily-Ann from FL
This is THE lip balm/gloss/hydrator/EVERYTHING to own. I have BADLY chapped and disgusting lips and this has stayed on my lips for hours and keeps them looking so good. It does a very subtle plumping but doesn't make it look like you just put on lip gloss.
Alison from Arizona
We live in the desert. Our lips dry out fast. I bought 2 of these - one for my, and one for my husband who had a cold and dried out his skin even further. He loves it for the relief to peeling skin!
Tammy from ND
Love how this makes my lips feel! Best stuff!
Mary from Pasadena, MD
I was told by my colorist/stylist at Ulta to our chase this as I keep putting Carmex on my lips. She is so right. I apply it only a few times a day and at bedtime. My lips are very happy

I have basically tried every lip moisturizer available to mankind and this is the BEST one! It feels wonderful, looks as wonderful as
It feels and I cannot live without it now.
Kathleen from Osprey, fl
This product seems to work. I will give it a second try. This gives me a little puff to my lips.
from Valparaiso, IN
I was on the hunt for a new lip protectant, after my old one from shiseido was discontinued.
This one was recommended to me by a young sales lady at Ulta, and I love it! Lips feel and remain moist for a long time.
I will buy this again.
