Excellent product! It does perfect your lips. Very nice feel on the lips (smooth and light), slight pleasant smell, beautiful colour (sheer peach), glossy finish.
I find the product just perfect. The packaging is very good: a soft tube that allows squeezing the exact amount you need and lets you finish it all up. The applicator is very nice too.

This treatment is incredible. A super hydrating balm with a very natural finish, works immediately to moisturize and bring life back to super dry lips. Can be used on its own. It is also perfect under any matte lipstick. Highly recommended for those who suffer from chronic chapped/dry lips.

This product falls into a category of its own, because it is a mixture between a gloss, a lip balm and a lip treatment.
More of a lip embellisher, which is the original french name of it "Eclat minute embellisseur lévres".
The name implies also that it instantly transforms and beautifies the lips.
One of these products that are hard to describe, but really work well.
I stumbled upon this product and tried it out at my beauty department.
Let me say, I´m not really into lipglosses as they tend to be sticky. I use the eight hour cream on my lips at night, but the product is a little bit too much for daytime.
Colour doesn´t imply that it has an opaque colour or gives much colour payoff. It just gives a hint of colour, but still I tried all 3 colours.
The pink one was too cool and the beige one was to neutral, so I choose the apricot one.
The lip perfector smells very like cocoa butter and vanilla, a sweet smell, but not offensive and not long lasting.
First time I applied it, the SA gave me way to much product and it was sitting on my lips in a very glossy way. This only happens, when you put a load of product on your lips.
When the product wore off a little bit, I looked at my lips and thought: Whoa, this really looks amazing.
The thing is, this gives you a "your lips but better" not in colour, but in texture and feeling of your lips. It transformed my winterridden and chapped lifeless lips into healthy-looking, luscious and at the same time looking-like-no-make-up-is-involved lips. Like a glammed-up version of my natural lips.
It feels smooth on my lips and lasts quite a while. And even when it wears off, my lips still feel nourished and protected and look better. So there´s a longlasting effect of the lip perfector.
There´s definitely some good nourishing stuff in this like shea butter and mango butter.
The tube with the sponge applicator tip is quite nice and I carry the tube around in my hand bag all the time.
I reapply it 2 or 3 times a day and my lips are in good condition during wintertime.
You´ve got to know what you´re buying, because it´s not fitting in one category, but is a product of its own.
But I adore it and use it frequently as I love the way it makes my lips look.
It is frequently sold out and there´s a good reason why. This has the qualities for a beauty staple in my make up case.

This is pricey but I use it daily and love it. Really moisturizes lips and has a nice pretty neutral colour - I am addicted.

I love, love, love this product! I've been buying it regularly since recieving it as a gwp a few years ago.
It has the most delicious scent and gives a lovely, natural sheen to the lips. It's not a dramatic effect but there's just something about it that I love.
I;ve tried all three in the range and love them all equally :)
I would buy again for sure!

This is really nice, the product is balmy and not to glossy. It is perfect for everyday and it smells delicious like vanilla/cake/caramel you almost want to lick it off your lips and apply again and again. There are three colors available (01 pink, 02 peach, 03 nude) but the number 02 apricot/peach en number 03 are almost similar in colour. The apricot colour is a nice peachy/nude that looks natural on the lips. This product is not to expensive and you get al lot of it (12ml) so it will last awhile to. I will buy it again because I want to try all the colours my next one will be pink!

I love this stuff. I look forward to applying it because it makes my lips looks really glossy but not overdone. Its really conditioning too- perfect for at work. I have one at my desk and one in my handbag and use it instead of lip balm because it does a better job!

I really like this product! I've used MAC-lipglasses for al long time, but I have to say, this is better - and less expensive. It really pronounces your lips in a very nice, natural way, stays on for a long time and all 3 offered colors are beautiful. It's funny because Clarins is a bit of an underestimated brand, and it also took me a while to find out, they have several really great products.

This product is gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous I bought it on reccomenation of the SA and looove it.
I'd describe it as a gloss it has no colour I'm it but does give a slight nuding effect to the lips which is very subtle but really nice. It has a sort of shimmer shine to it and just makes your lips look lovely.
The best thing about this is that its a pleasure to wear I find myself putting it on just because its so nice. Firstly the smell is amazing its not overpowering or sickly it just has a really warm soft pleasant smell which makes it feel really luxurious and its a pleasant smell to have on the lips.
When you put it on it feels really pleasant as well, it isn't sticky and makes your lips feel plump, not plumped up just really soft and lovely, I think it must have some conditioning qualities to it as it makes them feel really soft.
The tube is lovely and the sponge applicator allows you to put just the right amount on and the brush is really soft.
Just to mentiom as well I think this is no 03 not 02 as the title says, its definitely the peach one though so I don't know if Clarins has changed the number?
Anyway this is lovely I will definitely buy it again and I really want to try the pink one got a feeling it will be lovely.

This is such a terrific item from Clarins.
I'm not a loyal Clarins customer, in fact this might be the first purchase I've made. I'm really impressed with their line. I love that they have more than "outward" cosmetics, actually having skin care and even men's items.
My favorite aspects of this product are several...first off, to describe it...it's basically a tubed gloss/treatment with not much color payoff. It is in an attractive tube that is opaque and matches the color (sort of), although again - these are not pigmented. The best part is the applicator sponge tip. I love these a million times more than the weird brush applicators (clicky pen glosses are just so hard to control with that brush...like Stila Lip Glazes).
I also love how non-sticky the gloss is. It's so easy to wipe on/off, so you don't feel that weird heavy film after wiping off.
The smell is so nice, like cookie dough. Very nice, but not long-lasting, so if you don't love the idea of that smell, then no worries...it does fade.
The color itself is a sheerish peach. It's not opaque. I swatched it next to my HG peach gloss of late, Super Lustrous Peach Petal (Revlon). The P.P was much more white-based and opaque. But still, this product has great quality because 1) it is a treatment, so you feel good using it (supposedly helps fill in lines/wrinkles) 2) it's non-sticky 3) the tube is fun to use and attractive 4) the moisture is excellent.
I would use this by itself or over another product if you prefer. The other colors are beige (quite similar to Apricot IMO) and Rose Shimmer (i couldn't swatch it, they were out). There is very littlle shimmer in this product...certainly nothing noticeable.
Cost: $21 at Macy's and currently in stock/not discontinued.
If you love this but worry about the cost, a good dupe would be Revlon Beyond Natural creamy glosses, but those ARE Dc'd, so you might have to get them online (ebay, amazon, etc) or places like Big Lots or the Dollar store. Those smell similar, have similar colors, and are tube applicators with a bevel tip (but shorter tubes).
I love this item though - the SA told me they can't keep them in stock and that women will buy 2 or 3 at a time because they just really love them. :D
