I received this deluxe sized Lip Oil from Influenster in exchange for my review. I posted my original review for them over on the Clarins website but I wanted to share my thoughts about this product with you guys as well. This won’t be a very long or detailed review but rather short and sweet. I have been a fan of lip oils for years and honestly they are one of my favorite products to try out since I have naturally dry lips. I have tried high end lip oils such as the YSL Tint In Oil and Lancome’s Juicy Shakers, down to drugstore choices like the Milani Moisture Lock. And I am excited to tell you that this Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil is by far my absolute favorite.
When I apply this on my lips I get an instant cooling sensation. It’s not strong nor does it sting, it just makes your lips feel nice and cool for a minute. But that sensation doesn’t last long and then you start to feel the oil begin to totally hydrate your lips. It does feel a bit thick upon first application but once the oil starts to warm to your lips it starts to feel more like a lip gloss than an actual oil. But I don’t mind that it feels thicker than an average oil because the job it does on my lips is what matters most to me. It keeps my lips nicely hydrated and looks great over lipsticks for a pop of shine. The Minty flavor of the Blue one I received is nice and subtle, just how I like it. If you are a fan of lip oils then I think you would probably enjoy this product, and there are several colors/flavors to choose from. I think I want to order Candy because who can resist anything candy flavored?
The Clarins website says:
“There are seven delectable shades infused with 100% pure plant oils that will nourish, soothe and plump lips, leaving a protective veil of color. Apply before lipstick for a smooth application, wear alone for hydrated soft lips, or top off any lip color to add shine.”
The four new shades to the collection are:
- Honey Glam ~ For a pop of shimmer
- Mint~ For a cool, natural look
- Candy AND Tangerine~ which react to the PH in your lips giving you a wash of pink or coral
Any of these making you want to give them a try? Or have you already added one of the to your collection? I am really enjoying my Mint lip oil for now but will definitely order Candy sometime in the near future. I think these are great quality and last a long time for the price point. You can purchase these online at Clarins website, Macy’s, Sephora or Nordstrom. And if you decide to purchase one online don’t forget to your EBATES ladies!
