I’m not usually one to sport a pale pink lip, but I’ve found myself reaching out for this delicate hue more and more over the past couple of weeks. Perhaps I’m growing out of my vampy red lip phase (yeah, right…), but whatever the deal is – it’s subtle, pretty and I like it.
This season Clarins sprung into spring, bringing us the beautiful and delicate Opalescence collection. Fast-forward through the daffodil and cherry blossom-filled fields and Clarins is back again, making an even bigger statement for summer. Hotter, more vibrant and exotic than before, the Clarins Colours of Brazil collection has been created to reflect the warmer climes of this Latin American paradise. Home to this exciting collection are a selection of six Lip Balm Crayons, each comprising sheer luminous colour and filled with the ever-nourishing shea butter to provide the comfort of a lip balm and the shine of a gloss – packed together in one handy twist-and-turn tube. With enough lusciousness to rival Clinique’s Chubby Sticks, here’s the lowdown on my top three shades in action…
A toned down version of my go-to vibrant red, this shade adds a natural just-bitten look, but with a healthy sheen.
I have to admit that even I was a little dubious to apply this chocolate-like stick to my lips, but despite being somewhat deceiving pre-swatch, the colour settles like a cocoa dream – sweet, warm and nourishing.
