Clarins kindly sent me a new product, Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector in Rose ($23), from their spring collection. I love a gloss-balm hybrid that delivers a dose of color, and this does just that.
Clarins says that the product delivers 4 hours of hydration to plump and illuminate the lips. While I didn’t time it on my watch, I can say that it is very moisturizing and long-wearing. It’s loaded with vitamin E and rice bran oil, so lips are nourished while you wear it.
Judging by appearance, Instant Light is more on the gloss side, although in terms of texture and wear, it definitely feels like a balm. It’s comfortable, cushy, and even a little slick–but not at all tacky or clumpy like some glosses can be. The Rose shade is a beautiful see-through pink, like your lips, but better. It also comes in My Pink (a pink that adjusts to your personal pH levels), Coral, Rosewood, Red, and Orange.
