I'm really not one for lip gloss, the slightest gust of wind and your freshly washed locks become tangled up in the stickiness on the front of your face, I'm much more of a lippy or tinted balm kinda gal. I can count on one hand the amount of glosses I've tried which don't leave a gloopy residue that I actually don't mind wearing and I think I may have just found another to add to that small bunch..
I've had my eye on the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors for a little while - somewhere in between a gloss and a balm, they protect, nourish and repair the lips whilst also giving them a luscious, smooth shine. They come in a squeezy tube with a sponge applicator makeing them incredibly easy to apply, a quick swipe on the lips and you're good to go. Available in 3 natural shades, Pink, Apricot and Nude, they can be worn over the top of lipstick or alone. What is described as a 3D shimmer in them isn't all that noticeable, but in fact quite subtle, not to mention they smell amazing too (think candy floss or crème caramel. Mmm...)
My lips are naturally quite pigmented so the difference between each shade is only slightly noticeable. They're equally as beautiful as each other (although I think Apricot Shimmer tugs at my heart strings slightly more!). Non-sticky, wearable and moisturising, they tick all my boxes, a great lip product which my makeup bag has quite happily welcomed with open arms. The Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors can be found at Clarins counters or slightly cheaper online at feelunique.com for £14.40 each. And yes, you do need all three!
