I have a slight obsession with lip balms. I much prefer them to lipsticks and glosses, especially if they can give me a little colour & shine as well as moisturise. I carry around at least 3-4 balms with me at all times & just one lipstick, & the lipstick is usually of the glossy balm variety anyway. Something like the 17 Mirror Shine On lipsticks. What can I say.. I’m lazy!
Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector, 02 Apricot Shimmer, comes in a squeezy tube with a perforated applicator. The applicator is covered in a cushiony flat sponge – it feels very soft on the lips. You squeeze the tube to dispense the gloss/balm, & unless you’re a particularly vigorous squeezer, you can easily control the amount.
