Clarins are so good at spring – and their new Instant Light Lip Balm Perfectors are right up there in the realms of prettiness.
Part skin care part make up, they have been designed to moisturise, plump and illuminate the lips, giving just a sheer hint of colour. I am trying to get into the routine of wearing lipstick as my ‘face refresher’ but sometimes you just want to grab something that’s not too in your face but still gives it a little bit of a boost, and these are spot on.
The combination of wild mango and shea which is rich in fatty acids help to restore the hydrolipidic film, leaving lips nourished and soft. This cold weather can really batter your lips, especially when you’re in and out of central heated rooms, don’t drink enough water and generally ignore your mouth unless you’re stuffing chocolate in it.
Available in 6 shades, pictured here are Rose, Coral, Orange and Red. They also have the balms in My Pink, which reacts to your own PH levels, to give you a personalised pink.
As always with Clarins, they smell amazing and they really do feel nice on the lips, not greasy or sticky in any way, it’s exactly like wearing a lightweight lip balm with a hint of colour. They’re the perfect size for purses and pockets and you don’t need to have a mirror handy to apply them, so they’re great to grab and go.
My favourite colour is rose, it’s just that right pink for me, not too pale, not too dark. I’m working up the courage to wear orange, maybe when it’s a little bit warmer outside and I’m a little bit less ‘blue’ tinged!
The Instant Light Lip Balm Perfectors cost £18 each and are available from Clarins.
