Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector ($22.00, 0.42 fl oz) is my new lip product obsession. I’m not typically a fan of multipurpose lip products, but these are like an awesome lip gloss and an awesome lip balm in one.

Clarins Says:

A softly textured lip gel with a deliciously sweet scent and 3D shimmer. Experience the lusciously smooth, shiny and fuller lips you’ve always dreamed of. Sheer, but shaded enough to wear alone or to complement your favorite lip shade.

I’m really amazed by how moisturizing these are. They’re more effective than most of my actual lip treatments and balms. My lips feel completely smooth even hours after the gloss has worn off.

As a lip gloss, Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors give the appearance of bigger lips without actually plumping. They’re not overly tacky or sticky, and there’s a good range of sheer and more opaque shades available:

The widest selection of shades I was to find is available at clarinsusa.com. They sell six shades: the five I’ve swatched here and 06 Rosewood Shimmer.

Bottom Line:

I love these! They’re a perfect alternative to lip balm to keep in your purse.

Available at Clarins, $22.00.

    I have Rose Shimmer, Candy Shimmer and Nude Shimmer and they do not look so sheer on my lips than they do on yours. They are actually very nicely pigmented but in your photos it seems like it doesn’t matter which shade you buy since they are so sheer and colorless. Just saying…

      They do look really sheer on me! I can see some subtle differences in the sheer shades, but the only one that really show up on me is Candy Shimmer.

    They’re gorgeous, right? I have yet to meet a girl who’s tried it and thought “Bah! Humbug!”. My personal fave used to be 02, but these days I’m loving 05. Did a post on it a while back here: http://scribblewithliner.wordpress.com/2013/04/15/perfect-pink/ Come to think of it, think I might substtute my regular pawpaw for Clarins today. Happy Friday :)

      I don’t think I can pick a favorite, but 05 Candy Shimmer is awesome because it’s more opaque than the others. Love your post!
