The idea of 'lipgloss' makes us all a bit flustered. The gloopy, glittery, and sticky Lip Smackers that we used as an adolescent don't necessarily prime us for lip gloss in the real world. A bit of a beauty blogger favorite, the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfecter left me a bit skeptical. Nevetheless, you know how much I love a good 'natural' makeup. When the N word braces itself in the title of a beauty product, you've got me scrambling for my cash.
As per the ultra chic tube, it is, rightfully so, not the strawberry kisses flavored stuff we used to slater on as a kid. Instead, a rosy, shiny, moisturizing lip gloss takes the place. Not a hint of stickiness and no gloop, the shade Rose Shimmer graces my lips nearly everyday of the week. Is it natural? Oh yes. By dosing just the right hint of color, no matter what your lip color or shade you pick up, it will transform into the classic 'your lips but better' sort of shade.
Casual sundays knocking around the shops or black tie weddings complemented by nude pumps, I'll always carry around this beaute in my pocket or clutch. Oh la la!
