Well known fact: I love lipstick.
Lesser known fact: With Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil, I love lipstick even more.
Sampling beauty products is *obvs* one of my fave pastimes, so it’s no surprise when I received this lip oil in the mail, I was eager to give ‘er a go. In truth, my experience with Clarins product is limited to a couple of sample creams at most – to me, their products often skew “older” (no offence, mom).
Nonetheless, first impressions left me pretty impressed. In terms of product claims, the Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil promises to nourish, smooth and enhance lips “while forming a protective layer of transparent color to help lock in moisture for deep hydration.”
I’d say in large part this is true, but its versatility is what impresses me the most. Clarins Lip Oil can be applied under and over lipstick, or it can be worn alone (talk about versatility, amiright?) The color featured here – “mint” – applies like a clear gloss. The formula is a touch tacky, but it’s smooth and sits – you guessed it – ~supes~ comfortably on the lips. I find it works best beneath liquid lipstick, to help prevent drying and cracking.
So what’s my final take? Yaaas girl, yaaas.
