I have these in 07 & 08. The 07 is exactly my lip colour, doesn't do anything colour-wise, and is too light for me in spring/summer but is perfect for autumn & winter. Just gives me a polished look while moisturising my lips at the same time. The 08 is a pretty berry, still very natural looking but with more colour. Love that I can just slick them on before the school run or before I jump on my bike for work. Minimal effort, maximal result :).

One of my favourite clarins products that I have been repurchasing for myself,my mum and best friend for many years. It moisturises your lips, gives you nice tinted colour and glow. It smells and feels fantastic on compare to some other lipglosses including max, this has a more natural feel to it. Would definitely recommend for every day use.

I picked this up after watching "Suits" and trying to figure out what Megan Markle wears on her lips in the show... the internet told me it was this! It has some pros: I love the color (2 in this case), love the slight sheen and glossiness, love the scent! It makes your lips look full and healthy. There really is no other comparison for the color! Cons are that it doesn't moisturize whatsoever. In fact, using this means applying it constantly to ensure your lips don't feel dry. I'm undecided as to if I would buy it again. I have enough boring lip balms that moisturize well but this one has that special glow. If it wasn't $20, I'd probably pick it up again.

This product lives permanently in my handbag because it's the perfect every-day item. I purchased No.5 which is a pretty sheer pink shade that gives my lips a hint of colour.

The reason I always keep this with me is because it looks beautiful with any makeup look - from the most natural to the ultra-dramatic, but it also looks great when I'm wearing nothing at all on my face. So, if I forget to bring a lip product with me, I know this will look great no matter what.

It's truly a fuss-free lip item. The formula is so comfortable and moisturising - sitting somewhere between a balm and a gloss. It's not sticky at all (my pet peeve with glosses) and it doesn't smear or gloop up at the edge of your lips. It does fade fairly quickly, but leaves lips feeling hydrated and smooth.

The flock-tip applicator is very easy and comfortable to use, and it feels really nice when applying the product. I normally steer clear of tube glosses, but I haven't had any issues with it leaking and it's also really easy to control how much product comes out of the tip.

Given these are so sheer, I'm not really sure it's worth owning multiple shades. But I'll happily repurchase No.5 or any of the other pinky ones when I run out.

Such a lovely product! I have shades 07 and 08. Shade 07 is a really great MLBB shade on me, and it looks like it kinda plumps up my lips (without really doing it). The shimmer is so lovely and subtle, and it's great and easy to throw on in a hurry.

Shade 08 is called plum shimmer, and it gives my lips a really pretty, slightly flushed color. I'm really in to sheer lip products at the moment, so it's right up my alley. Both colors feel lovely moisturizing and are non-sticky.

Clarins has some very underrated and overlooked products and the Instant Light Lip Perfector falls into that category.
I bought two: 02 Apricot Shimmer and 10 Pink (summer 2016 collection) and they're perfect for that hint of colour and shine without looking tacky. Best of all, there's no sticky texture (ahem, MAC lipglass) so it's long hair friendly relatively speaking.

Apricot Shimmer doesn't really have shimmer (at least not to me) but a very subtle sheen and it's very low maintenance. I can apply it without a mirror without any worries and I like wearing it MAC Nippon or Shanghai Spice lipsticks for a very natural lip look.

Pink is part of the summer 2016 collection so it's probably a limited edition colour and it's a beautiful pink/coral. It gives me that MLBB look for my very pigmented lips.
I'll probably wear with my favourite YSL #34 Rose Rive Gauche lipstick for some extra punch.

These glosses have a fruity scent which isn't annoying and they're reasonably priced (for a high end line) at $20 CAD.
I prefer a sponge tip applicator instead of the squeeze tip applicator but that's very minor.

I've always liked Clarins glosses and these are great.

Let me start by saying,I never wear lip gloss. I find them sticky, too glossy, and they feel uncomfortable, then I tried this one in the berry shade.. SO GOOD. It's not sticky, it's so smooth and makes your lips beautiful. It may not be next level hydrating, but it does a good job! Don't forget that it's marketed as a gloss more so than a lip balm. People mentioned that it was expensive but I find that it's comparable to other high end brands ex: clinique, tarte, mac, etc. I think it's totally worth it because it will last you a long time and just feels great on the lips.

I usually wear it on it's own, BUT, I recently tried it with mac lip liner in Soar. The lip liner is really dry so I tried putting this on top... HEAVEN. It's the most beautiful combination, and my lips felt moisturized! I got so many compliments that I turned it into my go too lip look! Not to mention that it's a long lasting duo! :D

This is a really great lipgloss. I have one in the shade 03 and it's a pretty nude color. It's not the most pigmented color, but it just gives a nice sheen to the lips. It's not sticky at all. It last a few hours, which is okay for a lipgloss. It has a lovely vanilla scent, but nothing you can smell on the lips. The packaging is really pretty. It has a weird sponge applicator, but it's actually really nice and soft when you apply it to the lips. I definitely wanna check out the other colors.
