Clinique Pep-Start Pout Perfecting Balm for Fall 2017

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

As if I need another lip balm but I really do want to try Clinique Pep-Start Pout Perfecting Balm. Sorry not sorry! These reminded me of those old NYC Color Cosmetics Apple Lip Balms remember those?

Anyway, this Fall Clinique is again extending their Pep-Start Collection with yet another new offering. These moisturizing balms provide deep hydration and provide lips with deeply conditioning moisture that leaves them soft and smooth! You can snag a non-tinted version or choose three different shades to get a dash of color with your moisture.


  • Guava
  • Tangerine
  • Cherry
  • Clear

Clinique Pep-Start Pout Perfecting Balm is $17.50 and available now at

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    These do look cute but I certainly don’t need another lip balm! I do remember getting one of those apple balms, I wonder if I still have it? It makes me sad to think about the late N.Y.C. brand, I hope they come back one day.

    Another Lauder product with no listed ingredients on S. Won’t go there on principle. Transparency or bust! In this case, bust. ‘Course S screwed up the ingredients list on an EL foundation, so it had to go back without opening the outer package. Accuracy might be nice, too. Not counting on it.

    They do look a lot like the NYC balms. I had a couple but pitched them because they smelled too strongly of apples.

    $17.50 is too much for a balm, imo. They are also promising deep hydration? I am very skeptical about that as well. I am just completely jaded towards Clinique anyway so that’s part of it. They seem to promise things that just don’t come to fruition.
