Shortlist loves... Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector
What? Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector
Why? I have often wondered why there is no such thing as a multi-tasking lip balm; a product that moisturises as it plumps and illuminates your lips, something that is part skincare, part make-up. Well, that is until this gem of a product came along and we love it. The Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector from Clarins is just what I’ve been waiting for. An instant moisturiser to keep my lips in good shape during the summer months, but with the added benefit of gloss and colour.
And talking of colour… I fell in love with three of the six colours in the range, Orange, Rosewood and Red, so I have one to suit my every mood. The Rosewood when I’m just pottering around at home and need a boost, the Orange when I am out and about during the day and the Red for that bit of nighttime glamour. This is a product that glides on and immediately feels like it’s doing you some good.
The mineral pearls and pigments instantly light up your face while the vitamin E and rice bran oil extract protect the delicate skin on your lips. Can be used alone or over lipstick, but I really don’t see the need for anything else. A winner that I will be using all summer, and probably beyond.
Price: AED96, available in Paris Gallery stores and Clarins boutique, Dubai Mall
