Clarins Instant Natural Light Lip Perfector – Review and Swatches.



I have used many tinted lip balm mostly from Avon during my school and college days, but now I realized that’s not enough in winters. I love using lipsticks and for that I have to keep them moisturized and well maintained. Chapped lips look ghastly and I am sure nobody liked that. To my rescue I brought Clarins Instant Natural Light Lip Perfector last winter after reading many good reviews.  I bought this for moisturization, not colour – it just seemed very similar in texture to my favorite.

So many days I have always stayed away from lipglosses because of the tacky stickiness, I hate that thick gloppy sticky feeling on lips. I have heard many good things about this lip gloss/Lip balm, It’s not at all tacky neither thick, It is amazing on lips and has delicious cream-caramel scent to it.

The texture of this lip gloss is light-to-medium gel type consistency, super sheer which is perfect to apply over several lip shades. I generally use it as a lip moisturizer on its own without disturbing the actual lipstick shades. It smells delicious and feels great on lips. It keeps my lips moisturized and polished for 4-5 hours which I never felt with any other lipbalm. On daily use it can mask up dry chapped lips into smooth and wrinkle free surface.



Clarins Instant Natural Light Lip Perfector comes with a tube packaging and has a sponge tip applicator. I find it convenient to apply on lips and easy to manage. The packaging is easy to carry and looks lux too. With Clarins I can always trust their product! Oh, Our Pixi sisters- Sam and Nick both use Clarins Instant Natural Light Lip Perfector on daily basis 😀


What I like about Clarins Instant Natural Light Lip Perfector:

  • Contains silicone coated 3D pigments.
  • The texture is smooth, light weight and gel type consistency.
  • Smells like delicious caramel.
  • Pigmentation is sheer.
  • Contains Shea Butter, Mango, Olive extracts, vitamins A & E
  • Plumps, smoothes & gives lips a sexy shine
  • Gives deeply conditioning effect
  • Nourishes, softens & protects lips
  • Wears alone or over lipstick
  • Last for 4 hours max with meal.
  • Tube packaging and sponge tip applicator.



What I don’t like about Clarins Instant Natural Light Lip Perfector:

  • Price is high compare to other lip gloss.
  • Not available in many shades. Most of them come in nude shade which when applied doesn’t show up on Indian skin tones.



Rating: 4.3/5

This stuff is pricey but amazing for everyday use. I love using this mostly during winters. It doesn’t show up well on lips because of the sheer pigmentation which is nice to have when I am at home. Men also love using it because of the no-colour effect, non sticky formula yet moisturizing on lips.
