New Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm for Summer 2013

Following on from their success last year come four new shades of Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm for Summer 2013!

These gelatinous looking lovelies combine the pigment of a lippie with the moisturising properties of a lip balm and the transparent sheen of a gloss.

They all smell amazing, with each one smelling like goodies from a sweet shop!

  They may look scary both in colour form (especially Crystal Berry & Crystal Gold Plum) but they really aren’t anything to be scared of!

They are perfect for adding a splash of coloured to lips while looking after them with a dash of moisture and gloss.

‘’But the pigment only appears to run in the middle of the balm, doesn’t that make applying it evenly hard work?’’

Well in a word, sort of.

When applying, you will need to angle the balm to ensure the coloured part hits the edges of your lips, but it’s not really much of a problem.

 After application you may need to blend the colour and balm on your lips with your fingers to get even coverage, but it’s worth it.

L-R Crystal Berry, Crystal Mandarin, Crystal Rose & Crystal Gold Plum

I’m currently loving Crystal Rose, which is a really pretty pink and Crystal Berry, more of a purple/berry shade.

The four new shades will be available from Clarins from next month. 


  1. Want and need these in equal amounts! ;) x
