I sometimes feel that when brands launch special collections, whether it is for Spring, Summer, or a celebrity endorsement, that the colours can be somewhat unwearable, or are just boring. With their Spring 2013 collection, Clarins could not be further from this idea. I have previously reviewed the supremely wearable eye quad from the collection, and here is one of two lipglosses which is included in the collection.
Water Lily 09 is a pretty, sheer pink, which feels like a thick balm when applied. There is none of the stickiness of other brands, and the colour subtly enhances your natural lip colour. Like Clarins other glosses, it smells glorious – all sweet and fruity, I can’t imagine anyone not liking it. The gloss wears well – around 4 hours on me, and left my lips feeling moisturized. Because of the flattering shade and the lovely texture, the gloss has a permanent place in my handbag!
The Gloss Prodige is priced at £15.50
