Escape to the Garden with Clarins this spring and treat yourself to something lovely from their new Spring Collection 'Garden Escape'. The new collection was released last week and I was fortunate to come home to a lovely parcel from Clarins with some samples to review. My parcel included the new Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector and their new Jolie Rouge Brilliant Sheer Shine Lipsticks, which I will review very soon. However today I wanted to showcase the beauty of the gorgeous Lip Balm Perfector.
These new balms come in 6 wonderful colours and I was lucky enough to be sent 4 of the six shades.
01 Rose 02 Coral 03 My Pink 04 Orange 05 Red 06 Rosewood
These sleek lip balms are packaged like lipsticks with gorgeous gold lids, the coloured tubes reflect the colour of the product inside. They are ultra nourishing and leave my lips feeling super soft all day long. I have been using these everyday since they arrived on my doorstep (after photographing of course!). With frosty weather brings chapped lips. Chapped lips which want to bug my morning happiness. Rich in Vitamin E and other über cool ingredients, mixed up together to encourage the 'synthesis of hyaluronic acid' (I actually had to google the meaning of that) this encourages hydration making your lips feel happier.
(Rose, Red, Coral & My Pink)
Although sheer, the pigmentation is quite impressive and it reflects on the lips perfectly. Really nice for a colour pop during the day without looking too made up.
As you can see, or can't actually, the fourth colour on the lips is invisible on the skin - this is the - 'My Pink Shade - the sensitive pigments in this particular balm react with the PH level of your lips. which produces a bespoke pink colour personal to you. I haven't tried this one yet because Red is my ultimate favourite at the moment but I am really looking forward to test driving it soon.
The Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector cost £19 each and are available from your local Clarins Counter.
The Garden Escape Collection also includes a stunning eyeshadow palette, eyeliner and blusher which I am dying to try - definitely on my wish list of the seasons beauty products.
