Clarins Instant Light Lip Oil* is a product that had me extremely intrigued when I heard of it launching last year, but the thought of using an oil on my lips, left me a little unsure as to whether it would be for me or not.
I'm so into lip products and over time, have used all kinds of different balms and sticks to keep my lips as moisturised and supple as possible, but I don't think that in all of my years of buying beauty products, I've ever been presented with an oil formula, until now of course.
Clarins Instant Light Lip Oil is the perfect in-between of a lip balm and a lip gloss- similar to that of maybe an Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector, though with a lot less pigment.
It's incredibly light and feels so far from the oily formula that I imagined it would carry. It's lightweight, comfortable on the lips and adds a beautiful subtle gloss finish to my lips, which continues for hours after application.
I've tried this out both on its own and with a variety of lipsticks, and I really do love how well it seems to work for both. It adds a lovely amount of moisture which works beautifully well, even when paired with the most drying of lipsticks.
Not at all sticky or heavy like some oils can feel, Clarins Instant Light Lip Oil has become a winter staple for me and infused with plant based active ingredients, if you're after a lip treatment with a slight twist, I really recommend trying this.
Available in Honey and Raspberry, the Clarins Instant Light Lip Oil costs £18.00 and is available to buy at Clarins counters in the likes of John Lewis and Selfridges.
