Clarins – Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors

Yes, it’s another Clarins review for you today. I know I have reviewed quite a few Clarins products lately but they’ve got so many great make-up products and they’re such good quality, and these Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors* are perfect for the party season (they’d make lovely stocking fillers for friends too).
Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors come packaged in Clarins’ signature red boxes. They are a softly textured lip gloss with a lovely vanilla fragrance, and make lips look naturally soft, shiny and plump. The colours are sheer and can be worn alone or to give a bit of shine to another lip shade.
I have been testing out 2 shades – Nude Shimmer and Rosewood Shimmer. Nude Shimmer is a pale creamy beige colour, and Rosewood Shimmer is a slightly darker brown colour, but both are extremely sheer and look much darker when you squeeze them out of the nozzle than when they have been applied on the lips. You can see from the swatch image below that they are both beautiful, creamy natural shades.
I think the shade names (both with the word ‘Shimmer’ in them) are slightly misleading and might put some people off. Each shade has just a hint of shimmer in, just enough to make lips look shiny, I wouldn’t really describe the colours as shimmery.
The gloss is applied to the lips via a soft, slightly furry nozzle, just squeeze the tube gently and the coloured gloss is dispensed evenly throughout the nozzle pad.
My favourite shade of the two is the paler Nude Shimmer, it looks perfect on its own if you are going for a no make-up look and I have also been wearing a tiny dab of it on my bottom lip over other brown-shaded lipsticks to make the lips look fuller. It definitely suits someone with a paler skintone, but I think if you are darker you should go for the Rosewood Shimmer.
Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors are available in 6 shades, priced at £17 each, available from Clarins.
