Clarins Gives You More Than Just a Lip Balm

When Clarins came out with the Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector, I thought "Yah ok whatever.. Another hyped product".. And I ignored it for the longest time.. Until my lips started getting super dry and flaky which ain't pretty at all.. I thought I don't want just a lip balm.. I want something that could really hydrate my lips while adding a hint of colour.. 

And so I went to Clarins and thought I'd try their Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in shade 01 Rose Shimmer.. And was really amazed at the consistency of it, the hydration and the smell! And decided to just go ahead and get it coz it was too lovely on my lips for me to just walk by it..


- Sheer nude pink colour
- Super hydrating
- Non-sticky
- Glossy finish
- Extremely subtle shimmer that does not show at all on the lips
- Smells and tastes like cotton candy
- Contains: Extracts of Shea Butter, Wild Mango, Derivatives of Vitamins A & E all which repair, soften and protect against free radicals

Who Will Like This

- Anyone who is looking for long lasting lip hydration
- Anyone who wants to add that little bit of colour to their lips while treating them
- Anyone who loves a sweet sugary scent

Who Won't Like This

- Anyone who doesn't like "nude" lips
- Anyone who prefers a lip balm that contains SPF

My Final Thoughts: This feels lovely on the lips.. And it keeps my lips hydrated all day without looking boring because of the hint of colour it adds.. I love love the way it smells.. Reminds me of my childhood.. I'm not a huge fan of nude lips, so I do wear a lipstick underneath it just for added colour..

Would I Re-Purchase? Yes!

Have you tried Clarins Lip Perfector?

Ooh, this lip perfector sounds great! I haven't been much into heavy lip colors, so I think this sounds like a product I'd like. :D It gives a nice, moisturized look to the lips along with a cute pink. Thanks for sharing!

mmmm cotton candy I love the sound of that...MUFE Lab Shine Lip Gloss scent reminds me of my childhood..., but cotton candy comes at close second... I need to check this out :)

Vida said...

I love this so so much! I know there's prob not much difference in the different shades because they are so sheer, but I am tempted to get all of thm!

Amy said...

I'm having the same issue with dry lips and was considering this, but I am obsessive about needing SPF in my lip products. The search goes on!

Delyteful Speaks said...

@The MAke-up Fairy - Me too! It sux coz I wanna wear my matte lipsticks but they accentuate the dryness on my lips.. But this isn't bad at all..

@mel-davies - sorta kinda is except for the fact that it doesn't have spf

@Eden-Avalon - yah it's too bad it doesn't have spf.. Woulda been perfect

Sidney said...

So pretty :) I love sheer glosses like this - great post!

Kat @ Cherries In The Snow Beauty Blog said...

I have heard great stuff about this, but I don't know if I can justify buying as I think it's a little pricey compared to lip products I usually purchase. Do you know any places I can get it cheaper?

Kat @ Cherries In The Snow Beauty Blog said...

I've been lusting after the Cream Puff lip products for a while but I have so many lip products in my collection already!

Delyteful Speaks said...

@Sidney - Thanks hun =)

@Kat @ Cherries In The Snow Beauty Blog - The only place I could think of that sells this for cheaper is Duty Free.. I know what u mean.. I have way too many as well but I love experimenting wth different products =P

Jessica said...

I LOVE mine so much that I bought it just over a month ago and I've already used it almost entirely up! That never happens :)

You should def. review the Nuxe lip balm. I love your blog, your pictures are gorgeous. Thanks for the swatch of the Clarins lip perfector.

I've seen a lot of good reviews on this and I have to say I'm tempted to try it for myself :P I love nude lips and I usually opt for a light lipbalm over a full coverage lippie. The only thing I'm not digging is the applicator :/ Do you have any gripes with the packaging?

Delyteful Speaks said...

@Kalmo - Thanks hun.. Much appreciated =)

@AngelicBetrayal - I haven't had any problems with the applicator at all.. It actually dispenses the product beautifully on the lips

kellyyes said...
