Review: Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector.

Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors are easily my favourite lip products of all time, they even manage to beat my beloved Revlon Cherries in the Snow lipstick! I mean, I liked them so much I bought all three shades even though there's very little difference in colour between them. Clarins describe them as a 'softly textured lip gel that leave your lips looking soft, smooth, shiny and plump' and that's exactly what they are; they're basically the best sheer lipglosses ever. 

The first thing I noticed was the amazing scent, it's the perfect mixture of sweet vanilla and caramel & I don't know about you, but having a lipgloss that tastes like cake works well for me and I like that it's not an overpowering kind of scent. The formula isn't too thick and it's not sticky at all, which means they aren't the most long wearing, but having to reapply every few hours is okay when a product is this nice! They feel really hydrating on the lips, more so than any other lip product I've ever tried, so I'm really impressed. They make my lips look full, super shiny and plump, so I guess they really do what they promise on the box!

Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 03 Nude Shimmer.
The colours aren't that different, so you definitely don't need all three, but the formulation is completely consistent throughout all the shades so which ever one you go for, I think you'll love! These retail for £16 at Boots but you can find them for £12.80 on Escentual.com, which is a total bargain! These are one of those products that is worth all the hype and so much more, just don't expect too much from it, it is ultimately just a lipgloss afterall! It won't change your life, but it'll make your lips look pretty! 

Have you ever tried the Clarins Lip Perfectors?

  1. I've never heard of these actually and I'm not really a lipgloss kind of girl but they look really lovely and natural on you.

  2. I have the apricot one, and it's one I always go back to. Waiting to finish it to justify buying a differenct colour

  3. I haven't tried these but I love the look of apricot shimmer! I'm not a huge lipgloss person but in winter I definitely need to start stepping away from the matte shades and more towards the moisturising products :L

  8. I've wanted one of these for ages, but I don't think I could pay that much for a gloss. If I were to buy one I'd go for Nude Shimmer.

  11. Jennie I love Clarins products and these look totally gorgeous on you. I might have to splash out on one at some point (probably when my braces come off and I can go back to wearing lipgloss!) These look so natural and light, just the type of gloss I love :)

  13. The apricot shimmer is beautiful. I'm forcing myself to finish off two more lip products before I buy any more, but these are definitely going to be on my list. I love a simple, nicely-scented gloss way too much for my own good!

  15. Oh my goodness these are just beautiful shades! The applicator looks great - I've heard a lot of good things about these, and although I'm more of a lipstick fan, I may have to take the plunge and go for one of these! xx

  18. I haven't actually tried any Clarins stuff before but I am definitely loving the sponge applicator pads. Those are so much better for a smoother application.
