Ok, I’m late…probably a year late…
I wasn’t very keen on the first ‘season’ of these glosses, later when the new shades were launched, I still didn’t pay much attention cause I simply don’t like lip glosses that much. But some days ago I saw something like an offer ad at the beauty store that I often visit. The lip glosses were placed on a table in front of the store, they were many and they were pretty. I just had to check them out. I remembered Anna‘s posts about the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector shades and started swatching.
The new shades were looking pretty much the same as the original ones but as if more saturated. When I saw the shimmer I wanted to run out of the store because I really dislike shimmery lip products but the scent stopped me. It was the sweetest caramel scent but at the same time the formula was so smooth, soft and non-sticky. At the end I got the shade 06 Rosewood Shimmer.
The packaging is a tube with a soft sponge applicator on top, you just squeeze it gently and you see the product appearing.
As a lip balm addict, I was happy to learn that the formula is enriched with Shea Butter and Wild Mango to soften and repair the lips and also contains Vitamin E and A!
When I applied it, it felt really nice, not like a typical lip gloss but also like a gel and balm. The glitter is not so visible once the product is on the lips, it just makes them look fuller. The gloss adds a hint of colour and shine, softens and nourishes the lips.
I’m happy that I picked 06 Rosewood Shimmer because it’s a sophisticated browny nude that looks elegant on the lips.
I totally changed my mind and admit that I should have tried the Lip Perfectors earlier…better late than never, right? They are pretty, nourishing, non-sticky, delicious and perfect for girls like me that prefer the natural look. You can wear them by themselves or add on top of a lipstick.
