Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector Review

Hi Ladies,

I have another review for you all today and it is the Clarins Instant Lip Perfector.  This lip perfector comes in six beautiful shades and I am reviewing the shade Nude Shimmer (Number 3). So, let’s see what I exactly thought of this product!

Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector

Product Description:

A softly textured lip gel with a deliciously sweet scent. Lips are left looking soft, smooth, shiny and plump. Sheer, but has enough colour to wear alone or to complement your favourite lip shade.

My Experience with Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector:

The packaging of this product is absolutely stunning, since this is the sample version, it is smaller compared to the full size product. It comes in a beautiful opaque colour coded, squeeze tube. It has a gorgeous, extremely luxurious looking golden screw top lid, and underneath it lies the most softest applicator I have ever come across. It feels so velvety as it brushes across your lips. It is extremely travel friendly and can be shoved into your makeup bag along with the rest of your products with ease! Overall, I am so spellbound with its sophisticated packaging and how lush it feels.

The product feels so smooth and velvety on my lips, the texture of the product is like a gel lip balm and a lip gloss, so it is essentially two products packed in one handy tube. How great is that ladies?? And it’s just not a lip gloss, it is enriched with Shea Butter, an amazing ingredient to moisturise our dry lips with! Moreover, the smell is so intoxicating, it smells like sweet vanilla/caramel and tastes so good, unlike some other lip glosses I have tried in the past (Bobbi Brown I am looking at you).  I usually don’t like lip glosses that much and prefer to use a slight lip balm for every day use because it makes my lips feel so sticky and not at all comfortable. But luckily for me, this does not feel sticky on my lips and glides beautifully on them.  It’s staying power is not that strong since it’s so light and I personally reapply it after a meal or a cup of hot tea (my favourite).

This instant lip perfector looks extremely gorgeous on my lips, it provides a light sheen to my lips and makes them look hydrated. Since the shade I am featuring is n*de, it does not have much colour on application and is definitely not strongly pigmented.  The coverage is sheer with hints of shine to it. My lips look smoother, plumper and completely radiant due to the “3D Radiance Pigments” in the formula.  The best bit about this product is that it can be used as it is or over our favourite lipstick during the day or night. I usually do this when I have to go out for a fancy dinner and it looks so glamorous and acts as the perfect lip gloss, due to its non-sticky texture it feels so comfortable on the lips and like I said, it tastes so good too. Using it over the lipstick would be a great thing to do for those who have pigmented lips and want to try this lip perfector to achieve fuller-looking gorgeous lips.

Being a college student, means I have a really hectic lifestyle! Early morning lectures, seminars and tutorials till late in the evening and then a load of assignments to finish off.  Hence, I honestly have no time to prep myself during the weekdays, since I have to dash out of the door as the clock strikes 7:15! Because of this, I need a product that will give me a polished look and is hassle free. And honestly, this has been my go-to product every single morning when I have to attend classes in the morning. This has become my holy grail lip gloss when I am on hectic schedules and cannot get dressed as per my convenience. Especially during exam week, this has been my saviour in such demanding times.

  1. I have also tried the lip perfector. But I honestly don’t like the way it applies on the lip. Plus it makes the lip look so flat and lifeless.

    1. Oh thats really sad that it did not work for you! I actually do own the maybe line baby lips.. but I don’t like how it tastes on my lips unfortunately!
