Whenever Clarins release a new collection, I get super excited. They usually include a new product, and for Spring, they haven’t disappointed with the release of the new Instant Light Lip Balm Perfectors.
If you’ve used Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfectors, you’re probably as obsessed with them as I am! The new Instant Light Lip Balm Perfectors are a very handbag-friendly version of the cult classics, packaged in a chic little tube. There is a choice of 6 stunning colours (seriously, it’s impossible to choose a favourite) which leave lips with a glossy tint and a hit of moisture. The formulas of the balms is really something special. Like their tube predecessors, they smell delicious and the inclusion of mango and shea butters mean that they deliver on moisture and hydration for lips.
05 Red is probably the most colour saturated of the Lip Balms. It’s a gorgeous pink based red which is perfect if you’re looking to add a little colour into your day-to-day looks. It’s also the perfect ‘starter red’ – the pinky base tones means it is incredibly flattering to all skin tones, and unlike more orange based hues, it makes your teeth look pearly white.
04 Orange looks super pigmented in the tube, but when applied it glides on to be just the most perfect coral. This is just aching to be worn with a golden tan.
06 Rosewood is an absolutely beautiful pink toned nude. This is definitely a HG item for me – it’s a ‘your lips but better’ shade which feels so pretty and polished to wear. I like the fact that I can have a subtle nod to the 90s lip which is so popular now without going full-on Kylie Jenner. The subtle gloss keeps the lip balm from feeling too formal, so it’s a perfect choice for pairing with a slightly more dramatic eye.
03 My Pink is another offering by Clarins which is a completely personal shade. When applied the balm works with your body’s pH balance to create a pink which is completely unique to you! When I slicked the balm on it turned an adorable candy-pink shade which was super cute. When my mother wrestled it out of me, it turned a deeper plum on her. It’s a super fun option, and like the other balms, it stays glossy for upto 4 hours of wear!
Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfectors were released on Monday, are priced at £18.00 each and are available here (UK) and here (US)
