Clarins – Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in Toffee Pink Shimmer
This post may contain affiliate links.
OK so a couple of years ago I reviewed a pair of lip glosses from Clarins that I have used SO MUCH since… they were Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors in Nude Shimmer and Rosewood Shimmer. I wear them on their own, over nude lipstick, over pink lipstick, pretty much with anything and everything.
So imagine how excited I was when I heard that Clarins have recently launched a new Toffee Pink Shimmer shade of Natural Lip Perfector*!
Now if you’re a regular reader of Beauty Best Friend then you’ll know that pink is pretty much my favourite colour for lips and that I’m on a mission to find the perfect shade of pink lipstick (you can read a couple of my posts about my search here and here). So a pink version of my favourite lip gloss is very exciting!
Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors are a sheer lip gel with a subtle colour and a super-sweet vanilla flavour. The ingredients include Shea Butter and Mango which soften the lips and help to protect from the harsh elements whilst adding a lovely gloss. Toffee Pink Shimmer is a dusky mid-rose colour, although despite its name there isn’t really much shimmer to it. It is very glossy though, as are all the shades.
Here is Toffee Pink Shimmer on my lips, I prefer to wear this colour on its own as I think it matches the natural colour of my lips perfectly and just gives them a lovely blush and gloss. It would look great worn over pink lipstick too, in particular MAC Angel.
You can apply the gloss to the lips quickly and easily using the sponge-tipped applicator, no need for a lip brush!
Launched recently as part of Clarins’ Spring 2016 Make-Up Collection there is also another shade – Plum Shimmer – which has darker tones.
Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in Toffee Pink Shimmer is priced at £18, available from Clarins.
