Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector

I've been lusting after this beautiful gloss for an absolute age so was delighted to receive it as a gift recently. While Clarins originally produced this in only three shades, they've since brought out several new ones, all of which look rather lovely. I however had my heart set on this one from the original line-up 01- Rose Shimmer, a stunning milky pink which in spite of the name actually has no shimmer in it at all.

It's a very pretty pink gloss that looks natural yet still manages to enhance the appearance of the lips. It smells really good too- like vanilla flavoured sweets and the packaging is very aesthetically pleasing. I also like the application of it- it's a soft nib that the gloss is squeezed through, so very soft on the lips.

Here's the brands description:

"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".

I would agree with all of that except the "day after day" part as I haven't been using it long enough to judge. It has left my lips softer though even after a couple of uses. The only negative thing I would say about it is that it isn't crazy long lasting but I almost prefer that because it means the formula isn't as sticky or tacky as a lot of longer lasting glosses can tend to be.
Overall, I absolutely love this gloss. I now have my eye on the original peach shimmer and will definitely be checking out the newer shades.

Have you tried any of the Clarins Lip Perfectors?
