I have all of the colours and may I say .. I love this product! Clarins, normally is a very .. unreliable brand. It really surprised me because it blended in with my natural lip colour. It has a gorgeous tint and the smell is to die for!

Worth the buck! Lasts quite a long time as well.

This is a really nice product but it's far from being a must-have item for me. It moisturizes the lips quite well, it gives them a nice shine and colours them a little in a soft milky pink color. It has a nice, non-sticky and glossy texture.The truth is that the most special thing about this product is the packaging (reminds me of e.l.f.'s Luscious liquid lipstick except here you get more boring colors but waaaaaaay more product) and the scent. To me it smells like burned sugar and even tastes sweet if you lick your lips. The smell and taste are gone after ten or so minutes though. I can't deny it's a cute product and probably a great gift for someone who doesn't use a lot of make-up but what you get is really not that different from a regular two dollar lip gloss. I would buy it again if it was on sale, mostly because of the scent.

I got this as a free bee so I can't say much about the price but since it's by Clarins I guess it's quite pricey.

I got the pink color and it's a beautiful light, strawberry and milk pink with just the perfect amount of pigment for me! My lips doesn't look too light or dead they just get that amazing dewy rosy look.

My lips feels wonderful, soft and hydrated and the best thing imo - the smell! It's smells exactly like spongecake cake batter! Not too sweet or in your face, just spot on cakey fabulousness!
I heart it!

I had so high hopes about this gloss. But it does not give moisture, color or anything. For the price its not worth it.

I absolutely love this gloss. Well to be honest it is more of a gloss balm. The color is really sheer however my lips aren't very pigmented so it just adds a very subtle pink glow. It makes my lips appear smoother and the tiniest bit plumper. It lasts a fair amount of time and isn't tacky. The scent is nice a subtle vanilla. It isn't cheap by any means, but there is a good amount of product in the tube. I would however suggest trying this before you buy if you can since it really doesn't provide much of a tint so it may not be what you are looking for.

wow i just love this lipgloss! Its not a 'typical' lipgloss it isnt sticky, or tacky, its more like a lovely lipbalm but with the shine of a gloss! It is in no way one of those plumping glosses, but makes my lips look bigger and more fuller (i have id say 'average' lips- not super full, but not thin either) I love that pinky-nude Kim K lip and because i have quite pigmneted red lips i usually have to apply foundation over my lips first, but with this being a nice milky pink (but very natural milky pink- not as milky as say nars turkish delight that one is a bit more so!) it looks great on my lips very natural (nothing barbie about it!) just a nice light rose petal pink. Love love love. I hope to go on holiday soon and i would wear this every day there too :))

I have bought this lip gloss over and over again,in all3 shades!
Pink, peachy and nude. However i cant find a name, just numbers 1,2 and 3. So i think "Rose Shimmer" must be an overseas product/version!

This review is for Number 1 (Pink)...but everything i say will apply to both the other shades as well!
These are the only things by Clarins that have ever impressed me enough to buy.
The colours are very sheer,just a touch colour and lots of shine. They smell good too, which i love. As lip products are so close to your nose i cant stand it when a nice gloss smells awful. I can only describe it as a cocoa/creamy smell! The formula is sooo smooth,it just glides on with its sponge tipped applicator. Its very moisturising, feels like lip balm on.
The tube is nice and squeezy so you can use the majority of the product up.
I always use these in the summer because their so sheer and pretty. And add to a lovely sunkissed look.

These are versatile, moisturizing, and goof-proof. :D
I was given a sample size tube of 01, used it up completely, and have since bought the rest of the full sized line. They were $20 CAD with a portion of the proceeds donated to charity.

not sticky
doesn't all rush out of the tube at once
doesn't settle into lines at all
doesn't chap lips after it wears off
smells like cupcakes
tastes nice too
doesn't sting
one tube lasts a long time
doesn't smear everywhere
looks good with or without makeup
is the perfect compliment to a smoky eye without looking too ghostly or pigmented
Kisses right off - but at least it can be reapplied easily without a mirror

These are pretty much all I wear anymore, with the exception of Marcelle plumping gloss (for the extra shimmer), since a bad allergic reaction to other lipglosses that split my lip open for a week... plumping indeed. I also tend to find continuously shopping around for flattering lipstick colors to be extremely tiresome and expensive. All of the colors in this line are nice, 3 are all that's needed (warm, cool, neutral - DONE). Very happy with this purchase.

I got a sample size of this and think I will be buying a proper full size tube of it (once I have used everything else up, new year's resolution!). I have this in Rose Shimmer and I think it is very flattering and very natural. It would be ideal for a fresh faced look and it is incredibly moisturising into the bargain!

Do not purchase if you are looking for full on drama lips but if you are looking for a natural look and something that will be very moisturising on your lips, I think this is lovely. I'm just disappointed that I have put myself on a makeup fast for the foreseeable future!
