Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector

If there was just one lip balm to choose –  I think I couldn't do just one lip balm, not really! I have my beloved Nuxe Reve de Miel on my beauty stand as a night treatment. Then I have my lovely Korres Lip Butter in Jasmine for every day (you will get to see it all battered soon) and there are also lip butters in Pomegranate and Wild Rose (which is especially pretty in autumn). That seems to have me all covered up as far as lip balms go, right? Well, there was one more I really was eager to try and it sat still as a part of my notoriously shameful Beauty Wishlist for ages until I finally purchased it. Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector is something I coveted for a long, really long time. I couldn't bring myself to pay $23 for a lip balm, but then again – I've recently breached many of my boundaries so why not this one? I snapped up the last one in one of my favorite perfumeries and it was in the shade Rosewood Shimmer (06). It might appear to be a bit on the dark side but all six shades look very similar on the lips (semi-sheer pigmentation).

Ako bih morala odabrati samo jedan balzam – mislim da bi to bio nerealan scenario, sa nerealnim ocekivanjima. Nema sanse da bih mogla koristiti niti odabrati samo jedan balzam za usne. Koristim svoj voljeni Nuxe Reve de Miel i drzim ga na nocnom stolicu te mi koristi kao nocni tretman. Potom imam krasni Korres buter za usne u nijansi Jasmine (imati cete priliku da ga vidite u posljednjim momentima jer samo sto nisam dotakla dno) a naravno tu jos imamo nijanse Pomegranate i Wild Rose (koja posebno lijepo izgleda na jesen). Po svemu sudeci sam potpuno mirna sto se njege usana tice ali – uvijek ima neko ‘ali’. Bio je tu jos jedan balzam koji je dio poznato sramne Beauty Wisliste vec dugo vremena i njega sam jako, jako zeljela. Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector je stvarcica koju sam prizeljkivala dugo vremena no bilo mi je tesko izdvojiti 32KM za jedan balzam. Ali opet, toliko sam nekih vlastitih ogranicenja sto se tice beauty kupovine prekoracila ove godine, zasto ne prekrsiti pravila i ovaj put (parola: jednom se zivi)? Ugrabila sam posljednji primjerak u Plaza parfumeriji (BBI centar) a preostala nijansa je bila Rosewood Shimmer (06). Mozda djeluje kao tamnija boja nego sto inace volim no svih sest nijansi djeluje skoro pa identicno na usnama. Pigmentacija je poluprozirna.

Rosewood Shimmer (06) is a nice, caramel mauve-y hue that looks gorgeous and very natural. Design of the Natural Lip Perfector is top notch. I love the tube (12ml) and the shiny cap but I especially fond of the sponge-y applicator. Some might find it a bit icky but I reserve this lip balm to be worn on clean lips, no previous lip balm/lipstick/lip gloss residue (always carry wipes with me). There still is chance that some chapped, dry skin might get caught it in but so far, so good. Slightly sloped shape and soft sponge make application a breeze (under a light press of the tube, the balm soaks up the spongey aplicator). This lip balm has a nice, sweet scent (a bit similar to caramel candy) but it's not overpowering. The texture, however, is the true star and what makes this lip balm stand apart from the rest. It's 100% non-sticky. It glides effortlessly, it's deeply nourishing and smoothes out lips, it's light and doesn't slide around my lips. It's basically the perfect, ideal lip balm. Other thing I really love about this lip balm is that it plumps up the lips and makes the look fuller without any help of shimmer or glitter. Just a nice, creamy caramel tinted goodness.

Rosewood Shimmer (06) je socna nijansa karamele uz mauve podton te djeluje prekrasno na usnama, jako prirodno. Dizajn Natural Lip perfector balzama mi je odlican. Dopada mi se tubica (12ml) i sjajni cep no posebno mi se svidja spuzvasti aplikator. Nekima bi mogao biti malo bljakic no ovaj balzam nanosim iskljucivo na ciste usne na kojima nema ostataka prethodnog balzama/ruza/sjaja (vlazne maramice su uvijek korisne). Istina, uvijek postoji sansa da aplikator pokupi komadic suhe koze no za sada mi djeluje prilicno cisto. Blago zakrivljen oblik i mekana spuzvica cine nanosenje laganim (na pritisak tube balzam natopi spuzvasti aplikator). Balzam je blago slatkastog mirisa koji me podsjeca na karamele, no nije preagresivan. Tekstura je pak ono sto cini da se ovaj balzam istice od ostalih. U potpunosti je, 100% neljepljiv. Klizi preko usana, jako je ugodan, intenzivno hranljiv, zagladjuje kozu usana, lagan je i ne razmazuje se izvan ivica usana. U sustini, ovo vam je idealan balzam – balzam za usne iz snova. Jos nesto mi se jako dopada kod njega a to je da cini usne punijima bez pomoci shimmera ili krupnih sljokica. Samo je rijec o fantasticnom, kremastom balzamu boje karamele.
