Review: Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector in Apricot Shimmer

I had been debating whether or not to get this for a while now and by that I mean trying to decide whether £16 for what’s essentially a lip balm is really acceptable! haha! I can tell you now that it is! I wasn’t really expecting it to be much different to any other lip balm I’ve tried before but it really is!

I got the shade number 2 which is also called Apricot Shimmer but I don’t notice any shimmer to the gloss really but it is an apricot sort of shade but it doesn’t really transfer a lot on the lips really but my goodness! They didn’t lie when they called it a lip perfector!

The consistency is the most amazing balmy texture which is super light, feels so lovely and has a gorgeous light toffee scent to it! It really makes my lips look perfect! I don’t know how they do it but the balm really does some how make my lips look amazing and I love it! It’s my go to lip product at the moment because I’m going through quite an anti lipstick phase and favouring lighter, balmy glosses and this is by far the best I’ve ever tried an it’s definitely worth the price tag! In fact, I’m just about to buy the pink version!
