What does the product description say?
"With raspberry and pomegranate seed oils to hydrate and protect, the bold, wet-look formula grants the illusion of plumped-up, voluptuous lips while the spectrum of sheer shiny shades – from pale peach to deep fuchsia – are perfect for putting a ‘spring’ in your make up collection."
WIMJ summary

This product can help soften the skin and reduce its moisture loss with emollients and occlusives: butyrospermum parkii butter, cera microcristallina.

Keep in mind that this product does not contain effective ingredients to attract water to the upper layer of the skin. This is why an additional product with humectants like glycerin or hyaluronic acid can be helpful (apply it before this product for the best results).

WIMJ summary

This product contains antioxidants (rubus idaeus seed oil) that might be able to help neutralize free radicals in skin to lessen the damage it gets from the UV light (sun). There is not enough evidence to confirm their effectiveness in skin though.
