Ok but nothing special

About Me Classic Style
Comments about RESIST Anti-Aging Lip Gloss SPF 40 - Clearshine:
This would be a great lip gloss over top of lipstick or lip pencil if you like a really glossy finish. But I bought the clear and the pink shades to wear on bare lips to give a bit of polish but mostly to moisturize and provide a high SPF. I find it too glossy for that purpose. Paradoxically, despite being glossy and shiny, I find it is not moisturizing and even makes my lips a little try after using it. The pink is really a lovely colour. I am astonished at the comments about smell and taste, as to me it is tasteless and has no scent whatsoever. Finally, the applicator around the little hole the product comes out of is very scratchy on delicate lips. I am addicted to moisturizing lip balms. Until it was discontinued, I used PC Lipstick in "invisible" with SPF 15. It was marketed as a lipstick (there were colours also) but I really feel the "invisible" shade was more of a lip balm. I used this every single day and would buy multiples at a time. It was clear, but the texture was more of a sheen than a gloss, and it was very moisturizing. I so miss it and wish they would bring it back. Also don't like the PC lip balm SPF50 as it is exactly the traditional waxy feeling balm I am trying to avoid.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Love this! Broadband protection AND cruelty-free

About Me Trendy Style
It is very difficult to find a high SPF lip gloss/balm that's broad spectrum AND cruelty-free. There are many glosses/balms labeled 'SPF', but be careful b/c many are not broad spectrum...they only have UVB (which protects lips from burning), not UVA (which protects lips from aging). I'm thinking especially of the Fresh Sugar Lip treatment lip balms that always win beauty awards and accolades. They're a bit deceitful b/c they rave about their sun protection, but it's only UVB! (No UVA) Grr! I love Paula's Lip gloss. It protects your lips with a high broad spectrum SPF, feels very moisturizing, and comes in a lovely tinted pink shade as well as clear. All her products are cruelty-free, which I love. I have about 5 tubes of this gloss at any one time, spread out in places where I need them... 1 in my purse, 1 in my make-up bag, 1 in my nightstand drawer, 1 in the bathroom, and 1 stashed away in the living room. The comments about the scent/taste seem overblown to me. The scent is a pleasant brown sugar type of smell...nothing overwhelming or offensive. Plus, the scent seems to go away as you wear it. If you are curious about trying this lip gloss, go for it! I recommend this highly! I really hope Paula does not discontinue this. I get a little worried when I see it on sale.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

from Boston, MA
I was attracted to this product because of its SPF. I've never seen a regular lip product higher than SPF15. I was very disappointed with this product as it was sticky, and had a strange vanilla-coffee like flavor. I am a lover of PC products, and was very disappointed to find out this product was the opposite of its description.

Smells So Bad Can't Use
from Chicago, IL
This is so bad smelling that I can't use it. It smells like maple syrup - yuck - right underneath my nose. Unusable because of this.

Best Clear Gloss

About Me Natural Style
My new favorite clear gloss. Super shiny and very hydrating and I love that it has SPF. I am definitely buying the pink one also. It sort of lightly smells like cinnamon buns which I am into!

Really liked the sample. Full size product was different
from Thank you
I tried a sample and loved it. I purchased the tube to keep on my desk so I could pop a little color on thru the day and keep my lips hydrated, between lipstick applications. The sample product seemed to last longer on my lips. The tube product did not last, and as others mentioned, after it wore off, my lips felt drier. Biggest problem is that the hole where the product comes out has a little raised edge around it that uncomfortably scratches against my lip every time I try to apply it. I don't want to squeeze the product on my finger. Ick. I tossed the tube in the drawer and just came across it, so thought I would review it. Had high hopes from the samples :(

I have light, somewhat pink-undertone skin and the 'sheer pink' color is great, alone or over other lipstick.

Not wowed by this product
from Orlando, FL
About Me Beauty Conscious
The product was fine yet I did not like the taste at all. I like that it has a high SPF since I have had skin cancer and it does feel moisturizing on my lips. I have purchased Paula's choice products for years yet I won't be buying this lip product again. I loved her lipstick with SPF 15 in rose color and bought it for many years. Unfortunately, she doesn't offer the lipstick anymore.

Too drying for my lips
from Seattle, WA
Goes on great and the color is very nice, but it dries my lips out so badly that I can't use it at all. I've tried using a lip balm first, but it doesn't seem to help. I much prefer the limited edition lip glosses that Paula had a couple years ago.
