After hearing all the hype surrounding the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors I was intrigued. So, after a few clicks on my laptop Apricot Shimmer was on its way to me. (I ordered mine from Escentual as it was the cheapest). A few days later a little package arrived on my door step and the rest is history. The love affair had officially begun… Sounds a little dramatic admittedly, however I’ll paint the picture for you: I bought it eight weeks ago and there has not been one day go by where I haven’t used it. In fact, I haven’t used anything else on my lips but it. And coming from a beauty blogger with a collection of lip products as long as my arm, that’s saying something! It even trumped every lip product I took away with me to Gran Canaria for a week and, as I loved it so much, I picked up Rose Shimmer whilst I was over there.
The texture is heavenly and not sticky in the slightest. They add a beautifully natural glow to the lips whilst adding a subtle and understated hint of colour. They smell amazing – a sweet vanilla scent but not sickly. Admittedly at first I was a little apprehensive about the sponge-tip applicator, however I’ve found it works perfectly with the product and also helps to set them apart from their glossy competitors.
