Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfectors

Hey Lovelies,
Working in a beauty hall is very dangerous. I am constantly surrounded by amazing brands and products, and my wish list is ever growing. I was actually planning on investing in some YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks, seeing as everyone plus their dog seems to be raving about them. So I swatched a few shades at the YSL counter. Don't get me wrong they are lovely lipsticks, but they just didn't wow me as much as a I thought they would. Yes, the packaging is gorgeous, they are very pigmented and feel lovely on the lips, but I don't really wanna spend 24 pounds on a YSL lipstick if I can get a MAC one for 15. 
However, when I tried the Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfectors for the first time, it was an entirely different story.  You could say even say it was love at first application haha. If you read my blog on a regular basis you will probably already know that Clarins is one of my favourite skincare brands, but I never thought of getting any make up products from Clarins. For my cosmetics I tend to stick to brands like MAC and Benefit. But the Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfectors may well change all that. Not only do they have the most amazing sweet cookie scent, but they also don't dry your lips out or make them feel horrible and sticky like many lip gloss type products do. The scent isn't overpowering or sickly sweet, so even if you don't like cookies (and let's be honest who doesn't like cookies), it shouldn't put you off. 
The Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfectors are very long wearing for a lipgloss type product and I get about 2 hours out of them before I need to reapply. I love how the gel formula of this product leaves my lips feeling soft and moisturised whilst adding just the right amount of colour as well nice sheen to my lips. 
The Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfectors are available in 6 different shades. After trying out all the shades at the Clarins counter, I decided to treat myself to shade 3 (Nude Shimmer) and shade 6 (Rosewood Shimmer).  As they say picture tells a thousand words, so here are swatches of both shades for you to see what you think. 
Shade 3 Nude Shimmer is, as the name suggests, very nude and sheer and I thought it would look nice worn ontop of lipstick. 

Shade 6 Rosewood Shimmer is my favourite out of the range. It's my perfect everyday colour and I'm been wearing it all the time! Not even my MAC lipsticks are getting a look in now haha!

My only criticism of the Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfectors is the applicator.
The product has a soft sponge applicator which applies the product nicely on the lips, however it's not exactly the most hygienic of type of applicator. I can always squeeze the product out of the tube and apply it using my fingers or a brush though so it's not exactly the end of the world and it certainly does not put me off because I love the formula and everything else about the Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfectors
For me, this product is totally worth the hype and I can't believe it's taken me so long to get my hands on these! They retail for £17 and are available at your nearest Clarins counter as well as online. 
Have you tried  the Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfectors? What are your thoughts?

    1. The formula for these ones are really great! Smooth, not sticky,and they smell amazing. I ind that they give a hint of colour but the gloss really hides any imperfections in the lips- this is a magic product and I highly recommend the shade 01 rose shimmer (even though it doesn't have any shimmer in it) :)

  2. I agree, the YSL lipsticks are lovely but not lovely enough for their price! You pay for the name! haha
    Anyway, I've been curious about these lip glosses for quite some time. The colors seem nice and I've never tried anything from Clarins!
    Thanks for the review

  8. These certainly do look really nice, I like some of the pink shades on offer but I too wish the packaging was a little different.
