Good Morning Lovelies, so after reading Caroline Hirons rave about Clarins Spring 2015 release I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. The Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil comes in 2 flavours or shades (whatever) Honey and Raspberry. I was told Raspberry was limited edition and hence I made a very calculated decision to purchase limited edition now and will play with regular line at a later date.
I have repeatedly raved about face oils on this blog, and why should lips be left behind in the race. Packaging wise this lip oil is a perfect addition to the hand bag. Tiny, compact and super cute with gold twist top <ticks all boxes for me>. The doe-foot applicator is wide and you just need one stroke across the lip and voila. The scent it very subtle and makes me feel like I’ve eaten raspberries. Very pleasant and not overpowering in the slightest. My lips are pigmented so I cannot really see any colour pay off but I certainly do love the texture of the product. It’s certainly shiny and glossy but not sticky schmicky at all. Some ardent lovers of subtle matt appearing lip moisturizers may not like the idea of glossy lips but I’m certainly all over it.
Ingredient wise it appears good enough (based on my limited understanding and Mrs. Hirons seal of approval). Once I’m through with Raspberry I will get Honey unless Clarins decides to release newer flavours or shades.
