Now, around Christmas time especially, I have a tendency to buy myself little bits and pieces. The reason I say ‘especially Christmas time’ is because brands bring out such cute little giftset and I lack the will power to stop myself buying. This year a rather cute Clarins set caught my eye as it was full of miniatures of my favourite lip products.
I actually didn’t have to spend any money on this set as I had some FeelUnique vouchers to spend and on top of that I got a 10% discount which made this an even better deal. The set has a cute makeup bag, two mini Instant Light Perfectors (in shades I don’t have in my collection,) a mini Instant Light lip oil and a mini Joli Rouge lipstick in the shade 742.
The lip perfector I already have was in 02, a blogger fan favourite, and I love it. I often tend to use it when I’m going for a low maintenance makeup look. Having another two, especially two that are different shades, now gives me options when I want my day to be easy. 01 is a lovely rosy pink shade while 06 is a lovely browny nude. The mini Instant Light lip oil is my go to for lip care. I ran out of my Nuxe lip balm a while ago and have needed a replacement overnight lip treatment. This is so luxurious, I apply it before bed and let it sink in and by the morning my lips are lovely and soft. Before this set I had never actually tried a Clarins lipstick either so it was a welcome first. They picked the perfect Christmas colour in the shape of a blue toned red. It also smells like sweets and gets a thumbs up from me on that front.
The red swatched gorgeously on my arm, and only needed one swipe for it to be completely opaque, it’s definitely a Christmas day contender at the moment. The Instant Light in 01 doesn’t show up particularly on the skin but it does on the lips, whereas 06 shows up as a lovely pinky brown. I didn’t swatch the lip oil as it’s clear but it adds a nice shine to the lips.
