Clarins Lip Balm Crayons Summer 2014

 Clarins Lip Balm Crayons* (£18.00 each)

I love easy to wear lip colours that don't require a mirror and a steady hand for even application. The new Lip Balm Crayons by Clarins tick all the boxes and I have been using them a lot since they landed on my desk. They have the most gorgeous texture, that feels like a super hydrating lip balm, but they also provide lovely colour and shine. Perfect!

I was kindly sent 4 out of the 6 shades to try out and all of them are very pretty. The lightest one (01-My Pink) is slightly different than the rest, because it adapts to the colour of your lips to create a unique shade. If you have a look at the photos below, you will be able to see, that it looks clear at first (closeup photo of my lips) and transforms to a more intense pink colour after a while (photo of my full face). The other shades are nicely pigmented and you can apply them lightly for a sheer layer of colour or go for a couple of layers for a more vibrant effect. The formula contains mango, apricot and shea butters to smooth and nourish.

Clarins Lip Balm Crayons glide onto the lips effortlessly, don't accentuate dry patches and provide long lasting hydration. They are ideal for Summer and I am totally in love with all the colours. My favourite is 02 Creamy Pink, but the full range is worth checking out. 

01 My Pink - adapts to the pH of the lips creating a custom, sheer pink colour.
02 Creamy Pink -  the name says it all :) It's sooo pretty!
03 Tender Coral - warm coral with a little bit of golden shimmer
05 Delicious Plum - subtle berry shade
