Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfecting Base

Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfecting Base

Much like in 2015, I can't imagine that matte lipsticks are going to go anywhere quick; if anything I think this will be the year that we see more brands offering liquid versions of their best selling shades - MAC have just launched a range of matte liquid lipsticks. As great as matte lipsticks of any nature are, let's face facts they are drying and as such sometimes my matte lipstick collection is ignored. Winter is cruel enough to the lips without accelerating the problem. Well what if I told you that Clarins have created a moisturising lip primer - Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfecting Base: a product that will hydrate, prolong lipstick wear, gently plump the lips and prevent smudging or smearing of any lipstick? Tell me more I'd imagine, is your answer?

In a matter of days, Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfecting Base will launch and I personally believe it will quickly become a make-up bag staple. On first glance, you would be forgiven for assuming that the Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfecting Base is nothing more than a lip balm. Yes it does glide onto the lips, quickly nourishing and plumping with a combination of Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil and a medley of Sunflower and Mimosa waxes. Such ingredients deeply nourish and comfort the lips not to mention, with continued use Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfecting Base may shield from future dryness. If that is not enough, for a naturally plumper appearance (there is no tingling sensation) this lip product contains both Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen.

So far I imagine that as wonderful as the ingredient list may be, Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfecting Base may not sound all that impressive. Well, along with being utterly transparent in colour, Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfecting Base has an almost matte finish - all without being anything close to dehydrating of course. As such, this primer-come-balm is wonderful as a base product to any matte lipstick as it does not alter the finish of any lip product, and yet it does offer both prolonged wear and comfort. Forget sticky, tacky and drying matte lip colours - this primer combats all of said issues as well as expanding the life of any lip shade layered on top, as well as preventing smudging, smearing, flaking or bleeding.

Consider the Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfecting Base (£18) your new beauty secret weapon.
Keep your eyes peeled for it when it launches later this month.

  6. I've been opting for creamier lipsticks lately because my lips have seen better days (what with all the mattes and reds around the holidays). I may need to grab this the next time I'm at the drugstore; it sounds like the perfect all around lip balm! And I already adorable their other balms.
