Worth the Hype? Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector

This stuff is hyped. Popping up all over Instagram. But is it any good? Let’s review the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector, £18 full size, and find out…Worth the hype?

What Is It?

A very lightly tinted moisturising lip product. Halfway between a lip balm and a gloss.

Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector travel size, shades 01 and 06

The Good

  • Formula – moisturising, nice viscosity (not too thick, not too thin, not too sticky).
  • Applicator – lovely, a super soft sponge, quite unique.

The Less Good

  • Uhh…It’s just tinted lip balm you guys.

A nice product, but nothing major. Nothing innovative. Nice lip balm, nicely packaged.

I do use them all the time. They are great on no-makeup-makeup days. Or over a liquid lipstick that’s started to fade. So if you have the cash to splash, go ahead.

If not, the No7 BB Lips, £9, are a total dupe. Minus the applicator sponge.

Til next time,
