clarins instant light natural lip perfector

Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 001 - Rose Shimmer

I didn't really understand the hype around this product at first. I saw Anna raving about it, and after seeing Barbara and Lily recommending it, I decided to get this. However I always thought lipglosses are one of the most boring beauty purchases, it gets described as 'the best lipgloss ever' on quite a few beauty sites and being the beauty obsessant I am, I obviously had to try it! I found it quite pricey for 'just a lipgloss' but then again, since so many people recommended it, I just decided to buy it when I walked in the shop!
Since I'm a blondie with bright blue eyes and a very light skin, I decided that the pink one would be the one that would suit me the most. This lipgloss comes in three colours, a pinky, a peachy and a more taupey/neutral  colour, so it doesn't have a very wide colour range but I think that there's a colour for everyone's wanting!

Clarins describes the product as 'The ideal lip perfector for smooth, perfectly shaped lips with subtle, natural colour. A soft, gel formula that nourishes, repairs and protects. Day after day, lips are visibly more beautiful.', so they basically claim that it is a cross between a lipgloss and a lipbalm which seems to perfect your lips whilst giving them a subtle hint of colour. They're right. It has the colour of a lipgloss, but it feels as nourishing as a lipbalm and it is absolutely not sticky at all. The smell is also great! It smells a little bit like caramel but it also reminds me a little bit of the MAC lipsticks, one way or another (?!). It does seem to makem y lips look a tiny little bit fuller and the shape of my lips seems a lot more 'beautiful', if that does make any sense?! I don't really find that it does give any colour to my lips, but they do seem a little bit more pinky-ish and let's be honest, no product is perfect, haha.
It also comes in a really nice tube with an applicator I've never ever seen before! It's some kind of a mini-spunge with some little holes in it. I don't think it's very hygienic, but I don't really care about that haha. I really like this lipgloss and I definitely want to try more Clarins products! Any recommendations?

I really don't like to post a lot of reviews of single products, but I don't seem to have a lot of inspiration at the moment! I have a review of a MAC lipstick and another skincare product which I absolutely love coming up, so let me know if you want to see anything else on my blog! I'm also planning on posting some personal updates. Maybe every Sunday?
