Currently Crushing on Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector

By  |  0 Comments

As a fan of a good nude lip (it’s my go-to look), on my recent trip to snag a Clarins Essential Palette, I was instantly drawn to the display showcasing these three beauties.

I have about 5 nude lipsticks/glosses in my makeup bag, which to a rational person would seem like enough.Thing is I’m never rational when it comes to makeup (or shoes or handbags or clothes or accessories) (show me a girl who is!). Needless to say that after my gaze fell onto these pretty Clarins Lip Perfectors, I decided that I had to have one! After trying them out, I chose the Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 03, which is the lightest shade (pictured left).

What they say:

A softly textured lip gel with a deliciously sweet scent and 3D shimmer. Experience the lusciously smooth, shiny and fuller lips you’ve always dreamed of. Sheer, but shaded enough to wear alone or to complement your favorite lip shade.

I am head over heels in love!

Why am I in love?

Let’s just talk about the packaging first. I absolutely love how pretty, sleek and classy the tube looks. The writing on the tube doesn’t rub off unlike cheaper brands out there. It’s always nice to pull a beautiful product out of your handbag, to inspire a bit of product envy ;) . The packaging also makes it easy to apply when you’re on the go and being slightly longer than most glosses, the tube is easily identifiable when I’m driving and digging around in my bag.The sponge tip never squeezes out more than you need and makes application a breeze.

The lip gloss itself is the most moisturising, pleasant gloss I’ve ever used and smells like sweet, buttery toffee, which makes it a treat to apply. It also isn’t the tiniest bit sticky ior tacky. Kudos to Clarins for that! For a lip gloss, it has super staying power – even after having a meal, it managed to stay on my lips, doing its moisturising thing. I have used it on its own for more of a natural look and have also used it over some of my matte lipsticks for some shine. It performs like a dream and there isn’t a thing I don’t like about this gloss. In fact, it has turned me into one one of those women who apply lip gloss ALL THE TIME. I don’t know if this is a good thing…
