There is no need for me to tell you that I often ahem forget to use my eye lash curlers and you certainly don't need to know that often after my bath I'll be too
There is something I need to get off of my chest. I don't know if it makes me a fraud or beauty blogging failure but I'm not a fan of lip gloss. There I said it. Wow I found that highly cathartic. My experiences with traditional lip glosses have been gloopy, wind-swept-hair-stuck-to-face affairs. Never a good look!
But I've seen the error of my ways with the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector 03 Nude Shimmer. I've actually seen the error of my ways X 3 as this is the third shade I've picked up. More of a lip balm/lip gloss hybrid. It looks quite opaque in the tube but the colour isn't as intense on the lips. There is a slight shimmer but it is barely detectable and lips are left with a wash of colour and a glossy high shine finish. These feel moisturising and comfortable to wear not sticky in the slightest.
While called Nude Shimmer, I'd describe this as more of peach shade. I've been wearing this on it's own or popping some over NARS Barbarella for a perfect peachy pout. You can pick this up for £15 or €17.
Just to note, if you own 02 Apricot Shimmer, you may not need this too. When I got this home and swatched them both as you can see they are very similar. The top is 02 Apricot Shimmer and the bottom is the 03 Nude Shimmer. I mean, I obviously felt like I needed this too but you know...
