Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors Review

Every girl needs a new lip gloss to gush over right? Clarins came out with 3 new shades this Spring to add to their already existing line of Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector. The three new shades include Rosewood Shimmer (a rosy nude/beige shade), Candy Shimmer and Petal Shimmer.

I’m always on the hunt for the next best lip gloss, one that doesn’t get stuck to my hair when the wind blows, one that I can apply over a lipstick for a little shine and one that isn’t super goopy.  The Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors is somewhere in between a gloss and a balm I would say, it helps protect and nourish your lips while giving a luscious, smooth shine to your lips.


I tested out the Rosewood Shimmer and it’s a perfect nude for those that are pale like me and don’t want to look dead or muddy. I wanna say the best part of this gloss is that it smells and tastes like vanilla caramel, who doesn’t want a little cake frosting on their lips every time you rub them together?

The texture isn’t sticky at all and it really helps to moisturize, repair and soften your lips thanks to the Shea Butter, Wild Mango and Plant Perhydrosqualene. Also thanks to the “3D radiance pigments” these Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors give the illusion of fuller, shiner, smoother, softer lips, something I’ve always dreamed of. I have bought a ton of different lip glosses in the past that claim to do the same thing and never did, but I think I see the difference on this one?  

DSC_2627These come with a sponge squeeze tube applicator, making them super easy to apply and the more I use it the more I think, why aren’t all lip glosses packaged like this?  I’m in love with anything in a squeeze tube as I don’t have to struggle forcing those sponge applicators in and out of a tube to get the gloss out, now all I have to do is squeeze and swipe in on my lips, its as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Overall these Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectorsmoisturized the heck out of my lips, added a hint of color and gave the appearance of fuller lips, something I would definitely repurchase again. You can get your hands on these at your local Clarins counter for only $20, something you’ll be keeping in your purse and reaching for over and over again.




  1. Wow, what a detailed review… thank you! I’m going to go buy this today while in the mall, always looking for something to give the illusion of fuller lips

    • I’ve wasted so much money on products that claim to pump up my lips and never do, this does not plump them up, just gives the illusion of fuller lips, its amazing

  2. Ok I need this too, that color looks like the perfect nude for me too,why is it so hard to find a nice brown/ nude color?

    • I have a hard time finding the perfect nude for me too, this one is really great

  3. Always thought of Clarins as a brand for older people, but if you seem to like it, its worth checking out and you’re correct we can never have too many lip glosses!

    • Haha, I think a lot of ppl think its for older people only, when in fact its perfect for all ages

  4. Great review and I agree I would have never thought to pick up anything by Clarins, but you made me re-think this brand now, going to check them out this weekend

    • They really do have a really cool collection out this Spring, I would check out your local counter for sure

  5. fuller lips… yes please… can I find these at The Bay?

    • They should be at most Bay’s, if not you can order online too

  6. Thanks for the post on this, I was thinking about getting a few, but for the price I wanted to make sure its great

    • You totally sure pick one up, I know you’ll love it

  7. Have to tried any of the other shades, I’m not really into nude but the pinks sound nice, like the idea of fuller lips too

    • Sorry to say this was the first color I tested out, but I totally want the pink one now

  8. Yep, I need this, I need all the help I can get in making my lips look bigger

    • it really does give the illusion of a fuller lip

  9. I’ve heard about these, but never picked them up before because of the price, but after looking at this I might have to now

    • its for sure an investment, but its sometime nice to treat ourselves to nice things every once in awhile, trust me a lot of my collection is all drugstore brands, but I love this gloss so much

  10. By the sounds of things, this is going to be a great lip gloss, and I can never have too many so I’m going to give it a try

    • a girl can never have too many hehe

  11. Is it wrong that I rushed out on my lunch hour to pick one of these up after I read this review last night?

    • nope, not wrong at all… happy the review helped you

  12. Just went out and bought this and its already turned into my fave (yes after only 2 days) just thought I would share

    • I was hooked right away too

  13. Wow, this sounds amazing, going to pick one up this week, thanks for sharing

    • no problem, hope you love it as much as I do… you’ll have to let me know

  14. Everyone is saying they’re going to pick it up/ or have it…must be good, so I too am going to get one

    • It really is great, I think you’d love it as much as I do?

  15. Finally got my hands on one, and I’m really happy with it, its always in my purse now
